I wanted to check in because it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m still pregnant, just hanging out until my first ultrasound on Monday, July 29th.

I’m becoming more and more certain that I’m carrying a singleton. Again, that’s based mostly on a hunch (and I’ve been wrong before), but I’m almost positive it’s a singleton.

I also feel like I’d definitely have more symptoms if it were twins. I honestly don’t feel pregnant at all. I feel perfectly fine. So fine, in fact, that it’s making me really nervous. I’m almost halfway through the first trimester and I haven’t had a single twinge of nausea. My boobs/nipples feel perfectly fine and aren’t even that swollen. I’m not constipated. I’m not fatigued. Nothing. To make matters worse, I read in some stupid book (actually not stupid, as it was written by Mayo Clinic doctors) that nausea is a good sign and that it is associated with a lower risk of early pregnancy loss. Well, crap.

On the other hand, my mom said she never had nausea in any of her pregnancies (she has 4 kids) and she doesn’t think her mother or sister ever had morning sickness either. So maybe I just won some sort of pregnancy-related genetic lottery? After the BRCA1 debacle, I’ve gotta be due for winning some sort of genetic lottery.

That’s all for now. It’ll probably be quiet on this front again until after our ultrasound. I can’t wait to see our little bean(s) and see the heartbeat(s)!
