Back from vacation

Well, I am back from my vacation. Which was wonderful, except for the fact that it rained about 75% of the week. But we had a great time and were sad to see the week end. We are definitely planning on going back there next summer (with baby in tow!)

As far as the pregnancy goes, so far it has been pretty easy in regards to the symptoms. I have had some morning sickness and have vomited a few times (three times on vacation, my poor mom must have started to feel that the baby didn’t like her food. I threw up twice after eating her waffles!) Also I am still really tired. But I am not complaining!

My first OB appt is not for another week, Aug 26. I am a bit nervous about this appt. I love my RE nurses and am not sure how I feel about being a part of the “fertile” world. I think even my sister thinks I am a little out there with some of my worries, but then again she gets pregnant just by looking at her fiance I think. If anyone out there has any words of wisdom or funny stories or anything else of interest about first OB appts after IF, I would love to hear them!

Opps, we are getting a big thunderstorm and my dog Daphne is freaking out. I guess I should go comfort my poor puppy dog! Oh she is shaking!

Baby K’s first picture

Sorry it took me a couple of days, but without further ado, here is my peanut’s first picture!

And on that note I leave you for a week or so. Jeff and I, my parents and brother, and my in laws are all going on vacation this coming week to Lake Champlain. It will be a wonderful week full of baby talk I am sure. I am going to bring my computer and try to keep in touch but the internet up there is questionable.

I will be home on Saturday Aug 16th! See you then!

It seems so real now…

Wow, well we saw the baby today! What a beautiful little person there is inside of me! The whole idea of my son or daughter existing within me is beyond crazy. We saw the heartbeat too!!! It was in the 130 range (I don’t remember the exact number) and he is measuring 5mm. So exciting!!! The nurse told me my due date will be March 28th 2009. Oh and I have been officially released from the RE!!! I don’t have to use the PIO shots, estrogen patches or baby aspirin anymore! This honestly made me a little nervous because I thought I would be on the shots a lot longer. And while I am released to my regular OB, I can still call and/or go see them up until the time I see my OB for the first time. Which made me feel good since I don’t know how long it will be before I can get into the OB. I have to call tomorrow. But without a doubt, today has been the best day I have had in a LONG time!!!

**I will add an ultrasound pic later when I am at home and can scan it. I am at work right now**

One more sleep…

One more sleep until we learn if this pregnancy is going okay or not. One more sleep until we know what the next 8 months will look like. Tomorrow we go for our first ultrasound. I will be 6w4d. Hopefully everything will be perfect and we will be able to see the heartbeat. I do believe everything will be okay, however there is the underlying nagging doubt which I can’t seem to ignore. What if it is not okay? What if everything isn’t as it should be and they tell me the pregnancy isn’t viable. I can’t even imagine.

In other, less serious news, we are going on vacation on Saturday morning and I can’t wait! We are going to Lake Champlain, on the Vermont side. My parents, brother, and my in laws are going with us too. We have rented three cabins. I am so excited to get away and just relax. I hope the weather is good though. It has been just raining and raining for about a week now. I am tired of it. Hopefully next week will be clearer and nice and hot since I plan to spend┬ásome quality time in the swimming pool!!

I have been so exhausted recently. I know that its a pregnancy side effect, but good Lord I feel like I could sleep for 22 out of 24 hours a day. Hopefully this exhaustion will be limited to the first trimester or I am going to be screwed when school starts in September!! I have been having a lot of nausea too. I vomitted for the first time this weekend while I was at work. That’s always a good time.

I will check in tomorrow after the ultrasound. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
