Today, I am 8 weeks pregnant with our little kidney beans. Tomorrow at 10:00 AM, we get to go in for an ultrasound to check on them. If they both have heartbeats are are growing appropriately, the miscarriage risk is significantly diminished. I am crossing every thing I have and praying that we see and… Continue reading 8 Weeks!
Month: July 2018
We had yet another delay once arriving in Denver when getting our rental car. Apparently, there were millions of recalls, so we were supposed to sit in a five hour line. Luckily, I was not in lunatic mode any longer and had my bearings about me. I signed up for their loyalty program, told the… Continue reading Trip Recap
Placenta x 2 = Double the Hormones (otherwise known as my first breakdown)
This morning, we woke up before 4:00 AM to depart Columbia at 6:00 to go to Estes Park, by way of Denver to meet my family for a long weekend. The airport in Columbia is tiny, with one security line. They ask you to get there an hour early in order to have time. Today,… Continue reading Placenta x 2 = Double the Hormones (otherwise known as my first breakdown)
6w1d and our first ultrasound
Today marked my LONG wait and just over two weeks since I was confirmed pregnant. We went in this morning and they took my blood pressure and weight prior to walking me in. This was another vaginal ultrasound (like I'm used to) since it's so early. My blood pressure was surprisingly normal and I'm still… Continue reading 6w1d and our first ultrasound
Fearfully forging forward….
I've been sort of paralyzed with fear. I google everything I put into my mouth and I'm just so anxious to see our babies on Tuesday. The spotting either has subsided or it was truly due to me sticking the suppositories too far up. If that's the case, I really caused myself a lot of… Continue reading Fearfully forging forward….
How many sticks does it take?
The spotting had continued since Monday and man, it sucks. I took a pregnancy test last night again and was worried bc the one of the lines seemed light. Recently, I've been getting the hours between 1-4 am to myself, blissfully awake with only the internet to keep me entertained. So I've read about everything… Continue reading How many sticks does it take?
And, the spotting or whatever is back. It is so scary and impossible to literally not want to run home and hide in a dark room. Logically, I know that I can't stop the bleeding, no matter what I do, so going home does nothing. It just scares me because today was a particularly stressful… Continue reading And…it’s back
Only one week and one day until we get to see our babies. So far, I'm tired and maybe recently hormonal. I've been very emotional today and yesterday just due to fear. It's so hard having no control over what happens, other than taking the best care of myself I can. Food still isn't sounding… Continue reading 5 weeks
I said to Justin last week that if I wasn't pregnant, we should do some blood testing for the reason I'm so tired. I'm elated that I'm pregnant and it makes me feel so much better about myself for being tired. I'm not being lazy, my body is working on creating humans, so it's all… Continue reading Feelings
4 weeks, 2 days
Gestational ages are a weird thing. Even though I know exactly the day I got pregnant, I still have to account for the random two weeks in my cycle where nothing happened. So, my egg retrieval was on 6/18 and my babies were transferred on 6/22 at 5 days old. I found out I was… Continue reading 4 weeks, 2 days
