Things to report since my last post at 5 weeks:

- I am now just shy of 7 weeks.
- Dating scan tomorrow night = moment of truth
- No bleeding to report (this doesn't mean I haven't miscarried - could just be due to the progesterone suppositories)
- Symptoms include: constant nausea and metallic taste in my mouth, frequent urination, runny nose, powerful urge to sleep all day.

So yeah, the scan tomorrow will be the big moment. If there is a 7 week old human with a good strong heartbeat, we are going to celebrate.

Last night I had the most vivid nightmare of my life. It involved the discovery of fresh red blood on toilet paper (classic!), followed by a miscarriage on the toilet. For some reason, the products of conception that came out were two little red grapes (wtf) - this did not make it any less scary.

I woke up panting and in a complete panic. It seemed so real. I literally had to calm myself down and remind myself that nothing like that had happened *yet*. Let's hope it's just a nightmare and not a premonition?


  1. Please keep us posted, I'm thinking of you.

  2. I'll have my fingers crossed for you!

  3. I'm thinking of you and will be checking in tomorrow. Vivid dreams are part of that symptom list. The grape thing is just strange. Great thoughts for the scan.
