I'm gonna see how many references I can make to members of NWA throughout this blog's tenure. After relaxing and reclining for the morning, I met Justin at the doctor at 1:30 PM. We were taken back to the ultrasound room quickly, something for which I was very thankful. It was my first belly ultrasound… Continue reading Today Was a Good Day
It feels like as soon as I wrote the post a couple days ago, the universe was like... "wait, just one second...." I started spotting again (the first time since quitting suppositories with the exception of after my appointment) yesterday morning. It continued throughout the day, but I wasn't specifically worried. Then, last night, it… Continue reading Never get too comfortable
12 weeks and 2 days and our babies are the size of plums. We have an appointment on Thursday to see them and I couldn't be happier! It will be our last appointment until 16 weeks, then 20 weeks before more frequent monitoring may begin again. I think Justin and I are finally starting to… Continue reading Plumble Bees 🐝
I saw my OB this week after graduation from our RE. She's only been my OB for about three years because I had to unexpectedly switch due to an incident that happened with my previous. She's a very good doctor who many people I know use and is very kind. The last time she saw… Continue reading OB Appointment and the diagram of a cervix
Strawberries. Kumquats. Prunes. Apparently, the babies are the size of all three this week. They've graduated from embryos to fetuses just as I've graduated from my RE to my OB. As I gave a pantless hug to everyone yesterday, I was overcome with emotion. It's hard to believe. 6 rounds of clomid. 3 rounds of… Continue reading Fruit I never knew was the same size.
It's weird how things become "things." Like mouthing "olive juice" when you were younger because the mouth motions are identical to "I love you." I was always markedly disappointed that people weren't sharing their affection with me. (My sensitivity started from a young age.) Anyway, we have two little babies, the size of olives growing… Continue reading Olive Juice
I'm going to start updating here for family and close friends. If you work with me, please do not share with anyone else at the moment. It is still very early and we have a long way to go!! Please feel free to talk to me about it in a private setting. 😘 I think… Continue reading New disclaimer!
Yesterday, we had our 8wk ultrasound to check in on our little guys. According to various apps, they're the size of either kidney beans or raspberries. I'm finding it disconcerting that they're compared to food constantly, but I also am having trouble thinking of alternatives. Perhaps a small pebble? A stack of seven nickels? 300… Continue reading Krasbeans and other units of measurement
