Going Strong

I thought Wednesday was never going to get here. But, it finally did!

We rushed home from work and got to the office just in time for our scheduled appointment at 4:15pm. However, we didn't get taken back to the ultrasound room until 5pm and Dr. T didn't come in until around 5:30. But, it was all worth.

She had recently gotten a new machine that has a big screen hooked up to it. The first thing I noticed was how much bigger the baby has gotten. We spotted the heartbeat and our RE took a look around. It's hard to sit there when she is taking her time and not saying much. Then, we had one of the best experiences ever. We got to hear the heartbeat! It was sooo amazing to hear! She didn't measure it, but see said it was around 140-150 bpm. She said it was very normal. She also measured the CRL and we measured just fine based off of our last ultrasound. Actually, we measured one day ahead of what we should of from our last look at the baby. Today, I am 7w3d.

How have I been feeling? Well, morning sickness kicked in the day of our first ultrasound and has gotten progressively worse. This past Monday, I called my RE and  I am now taking a generic brand of Z.ofran. After so adjustment in dosage, I am like a different woman. I feel strecthing, pulling and cramps every now and then. My back aches here and there. I am so hungry, but can't find anything that sounds good. Honestly, I don't care how I feel. I just want everything to be ok.

It's hard. I want so bad to be excited. But, we are holding back. Our past makes it so difficult to enjoy this at all.

Our RE is seeing us again at 9w on 2.7 and she also referred us to an OB. We are seeing him at 10w on 2.14.

I can't wait to see our little one again. I hope and pray that everything is ok.

Ohh, we haven't told anyone yet... but you all of course!

Oh goodness, I don't follow your blog but I pop in to get my baby fix. Your little girl is such a dollface! I think I'm going to have to start following you, I've never been so thrilled for a complete set of strangers before!!! You just seem like the sweetest little family and I am beyond happy for you. Baby C will be such a wonderful big sister!

Yay, yay, yay! All good news! I remember those first weeks, they are so hard. We honestly didn't even acknowledge or bond with this pregnancy until probably close to 20 weeks. It was too hard, and of course we had Jax to focus on:). I can tell you, it will be hard to go through pregnancy while caring for a young infant. Really hard. But, you and I both know that this is a blessing, and so we make it through and treasure it all. Our infertility taught us everything we needed to know (about blessings and about our own inner strength) to get through this:). Take care, hun!
