oh lol no I refused those tests. But I do know my hormones have been crazy compared to my son. My skin is crap, my mucous is out of control (lots of it) and though I never threw up this time (like I did with him) I got terrible food aversions in the first trimester. Couldn't eat hardly anything but prepackaged processed mush food. Sorry I couldn't give concrete evidence. Good luck with the pregnancy though! Oh and your diapers are adorable!!!

Thanks! I do all the screenings since I'm high risk anyway for other reasons. My first son I was only a little bit tired for symptoms and had pretty average levels early on. My second son I had insanely high levels initially and then they just kinda leveled out at 6 weeks to be average range. I had no symptoms with him. I did get bad heartburn and reflux in the third trimester with both. This time my levels started out high and stayed high and my symptoms were very intense. I had hyperemesis that still isn't completely gone at 15 weeks, headaches, extreme emotions and anxiety, fatigue, food aversions, horrible breast tenderness (never had this before), acne, insane amounts of mucus/discharge (I've been dry my other pregnancies), basically "normal" symptoms but very intense and unusual for me. I ended up calling to get my levels from my last two pregnancies and this theory was dead on for both my boys. I don't know about this one yet.
