1/4 of the way there! And NIAW

I hit 10 weeks on Thursday.  Which makes me 1/4 of the way there!  And still 2 more weeks until my N/T scan.  Still the occasional bout of nausea, but that’s pretty much it.  I feel fat, and pregnant.  I like that second one….

And today marks the last day of National Infertility Awareness Week.  I haven’t really said or posted anything about it, and at this point I feel like it’s too late. 😦  Last year I’m sure I said something on FB, but this year I hesitated because, well, I’m pregnant.  Not that I don’t appreciate the week.  IF sucks.  But I mean, I certainly wasn’t going to “come out” on FB during NIAW.  I just don’t know what to say. 😦


Prenatal Yoga

I hate being that cliche, I get pregnant and then stop blogging.  I’m trying to get better at that.

Anyway, I went to my first yoga class ever today.  I think I really enjoyed it.  I’m hoping it’ll help with the blood pressure.  I got a little light headed about halfway through, after lots of head up and down and up and down.  So she had me sit out for a few minutes until I felt better.  Next time I either won’t bow my head so low, or at least take it a lot slower.  Regardless, I liked it, and think it was worthwhile.  Even if I was, by far, the earliest along expectant mother there.  The next closest one was like 25 weeks.

Today was my first Sunday off in forever, and it was awesome.  I finally told my boss I wanted Sundays off.  I had 0 days off a week with Andrew, and that gets real old real quick.  It was our first day off together (without doctor’s appointments) in a really long time.  We decided to set  up some things in the nursery, and they turned out super cute.  I know it’s really early, but oh well, it was fun. 🙂

Maybe I just really like being ahead of the game. 😛

Otherwise things are going relatively well.  Every few days I’ll get a terrible case of nausea — I came home from work early on Tuesday because I just felt that awful.  But it doesn’t seem that bad overall, and ginger ale and potato chips seem to help.  And my new shoes seem to keep my feet from swelling too bad.  Otherwise I’m just hungry all the time.

8 weeks & Perinatal Appt. (long)

So we had our first appointment with the OB this morning (well, technically just her nurse).  Routine stuff.  All the same info that we got at the same appointment back during what turned out to be the miscarriage.  Except that the nurse seemed very unprepared and discombobulated… our doctor’s nurse excused herself about 2 minutes in for a nosebleed, so a different nurse filled in.

I spent the entire appointment nervous and anxious out of my mind, and I have no idea why.  Maybe because the last time we had that appointment we were minutes away from bad news.  Maybe because it was 9am and I had many hours to wait until (what I hoped would be) a reassuring ultrasound at 2:30.  (Don’t worry, it was 🙂 Continue reading
