So, still pregnant (thankful) and had my first sono at about 5 weeks.  The little sac is in the right place and the blood levels are rising appropriately.  I have an appt with the high risk OB on Tuesday am and by then we should see the start of the fetal pole and maybe if I'm really lucky a little flicker of a heart beat.
 
I went on entocort and the flare has calmed down.  Still achy in the gut but much better.  I was able to go to the US open on Sunday and walk around for 4 hours.  I even had a hamburger and lived to tell about it!
 
Thanks for reading. 
 
Hopeful that on Tuesday morning we see progression of the little nugget.  I'm dying to tell my folks!

Great news! So excited for you to see the heartbeat. Just seeing the sac is awesome, but the heartbeat starts to make it all real.
Hoping to stay in remission after the birth of a healthy baby girl. On Pentasa during my pregnancy, went med-free 2 months to nurse (stupid), but back on Pentasa and still nursing.

That is awesome news Bluize!!! You must be going nuts not being able to tell your folks. My mom was always too smart for me and always knew I was expecting. I guess going over to visit and always falling asleep on her couch might have given her some clues:) I use to want to sleep the day away when I was pregnant (at least for the 1st trimester). So excited for you!! On a side note, we just found out our favorite niece is going to have a BOY!! Of course, as soon as I knew what it was, I was in Babies R US right away:) Such an exciting time in your life.

I didn't take the entocort today by accident and my belly hurts but I'm trying to remain calm and I look forward to getting home and popping the pills asap.

I'm a bit fatigued but mostly no real outward signs.  I'm sure by week 7 or 8 I will be in full blown preggo symptoms.  The doc told me that in the 2nd tri things could calm down with my crohns symptoms since cortisol levels rise.  That's why he says the entocort is helping me now. 

I've only told you guys, one co-worker since she sits next to me (can't keep it a secret the way we sit) and my doctors.  This is killing me!

Hey....things sound good. I can't believe you made it through some time at the open that is a great feat. Keeping your secret is kind of fun...I am waiting for my 6th great niece or nephew now.... hoping it is a girl as I have 5 great nephews. Ooooo little ones to spoil all over again
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

Gail, I'm sure if all goes well my parents, my cousins and my friends will all be shopping fools!  This little one has been a long
time coming.

Geez, I'm not pregnant or flaring and I don't think I could make it four hours standing. Best of luck to you.
