Who knew a baby the size of a grape could have such an effect on your body, (side note I am not complaining just reflecting)! I swear that God has a sense of humor he knew how bad I wanted this baby and to experience pregnancy so he is giving me the full blown experience. I have morning and evening sickness at times I even have the pleasure of losing my breakfast and dinner. Oh the joy of raging hormones…I already tend to be a bit of a crier so pregnancy has only increased this. One minute I am on cloud 9 and within seconds I feel like a crazy person. I am trying to not make Eric’s life to hellish. The list goes on fatigue, extra saliva, heartburn, oh and my favorite frequent urination!
I am truly enjoying the entire experience of carrying our child. Yesterday we had the pleasure of having our 5th ultra sound. Yes you heard me right 5th. We have had more ultra sounds than some pregnant women have their entire pregnancy and we are only 9 weeks in. When you are high risk you get tons of ultra sounds (which I enjoy). We heard the heartbeat for the first time on Oct 21st the heart rate was 175 and yesterday it was 167. The ultra sound tech Michelle is so sweet she has been doing my ultra sounds since we started fertility treatments so every time she sees me she is so excited. She even has cried with Eric and me during our visits which I find so sweet. I feel like she really cares about us and our baby!
So today I am 9 weeks and 4 days and the doctor thinks everything looks good. I continue to go for weekly blood testing and I have had 2 rH shots. I am thankful for each day I carry our baby and I feel so blessed.
In 31 more weeks I get to hold my little blessing!
