Thanks for asking! The really really good news is that I am still pregnant, which I am grateful for every day. Tomorrow I will be 8 weeks.
And you all were right, last weeks sonogram showed two gestational sacs, and two yolk sacs. We saw only one heartbeat though, but the nurse seemed to think we might see another this week (tomorrow). I don't really understand, as I thought we were supposed to be able to see heartbeats by last week (I was 6w5d), but she said she wasn't getting a very clear picture.
The not so great part is that I have been feeling incredibly lousy and depressed, and having trouble feeling happy about the pregnancy, which is distressing. I know somewhere inside I am very happy, and I've felt short moments of it.
Also I have been in physical distress. For about a week and a half I had a terrible terrible immobilizing lower back issue (which is a little better now). And besides nausea, and physical pain from round ligaments, and strange body aches (that may be related to coming off the steroids) I just have absolutely no energy to do anything. All Ive felt up to is sitting on the couch, and reading or watching movies. I feel like a lump. I'm hoping that some or all of this is first trimester misery. I just don't feel like myself at all. I had such an earth-mama fantasy of myself, pregnant, and that image has surely been disproved!
I'm looking forward to catching up on everyone's news. Best wishes!
