How am I doing, you ask?

I'm fine. I have the occasional nausea, acid reflux, cramping, sore boobs and I'm pretty tired all the time. And a side effect I never knew existed, the increased production of bodily fluids, has kicked in BIG TIME. The amount of crap that comes out of my nose when I blow it is INSANE...lol. And no, I don't have allergies or a cold. I have no idea where it's all coming from.

Because of said increased mucous, Frank has been putting up with my "adorable snoring". Let's see how adorable it is after a few months :)

No morning sickness though...not sure if that's a good or bad thing...from what I hear, it usually doesn't kick in until around 7 weeks anyway...if at all.

Today I am 5w3d (that's 5 weeks, 3 days). And I am SURE these next 4 days will move at a snail's pace...since we're both SUPER anxious about our ultrasound on Monday.

We talk to our baby all the time...he has to know by now how loved he is. We're confident he'll be sticking around for the long haul. WE HOPE.

Keep those prayers coming...

Thanks for the update M! I'm so happy that you are feeling so bad! LOL! I didn't start feeling true morning sickness or in my case all day sickness until about 10 weeks and then watch out! I will continue to keep you three in my prayers!!!

I am so happy to hear that you are doing well Melissa!!! The extra bodily fulids hasn't gone away for me. I am still stuffy and hacking up a lung. You'll get used to it. Just make sure you get your rest and take care of yourself and the baby!! I check in daily to see how you're doing. Hang in there!!!

Woohoo, it sounds like everything is falling right into place! Snoring is a good sign (according to my superstitious MIL) and the fluid production isn't going to be limited to just your nose! Sounds like everything is going swimmingly so far. Good luck Monday! (melaniekt)

Hi Mel! I haven't been on the boards much since I started my new position. I came across your blog today and saw the news! I'm praying for you both. I can't think of any other couple who deserves this more than you two!

The mucus was my only 'real' side effect. Oh, and according to Matt, that cute little snoring isn't so cute later on...esp. since it's stayed past the babies coming!!!

Good luck Monday

Hi Melissa! Liz's friend Kim here. I am sooo happy for you!!! You know my morning sickness never kicked in until around week 8. You are my hero for surviving it without carbs. And I was a MAD SNORER too during my first pregnancy, although I haven't been with baby #2. My theory is that it was all the extra progestorone from IVF with the first one. Hang in there. You are doing so well and I am so happy for you. Reading your blog just makes me tingle from head to toe!
