Well that was fun

I haven't updated in a couple weeks, but I really didn't have too much to say. I've been having all the normal morning sickness, and exhaustion most people experience in their fisr trimester. But, no real complaints, I've just been so happy to be pregnant. Starting about midnight on Monday I started throwing up a lot. At first I just thought that morning sickness was really kicking my ass that day. But into the afternoon I still couldn't keep anything down, not even water. My sister was sick also, so I thought I'd just caught a bug. I called my OB, and I just thought he'd probably call me in some antinausea meds, but they told me I had to go to the ER for some fluids. I waited a couple more hours to go and ate/drank something hoping it'd stay down. When I didn't, and I started to have a little cramping I finally agreed to go. There is absolutly nothing I wouldn't do to make sure that the baby is okay. When I got there my blood pressure was really high, and I also had a UTI. They gave me fluids, blood pressure meds, zofran, and IV antibiotics. The blood pressure meds instantly made me feel hot, dizzy, and like I wanted to crawl out of my skin. I've never felt like that before. Tim grabbed the doctor and they gave me some IV benadryl. I don't know if it helped, but it knocked me out. We got home about 10pm and I went right to bed. I slept like a rock all night. This morning I still feel really wierd and a little out of it, like I just want to sleep all day. So that was our adventure last night...
I am 10w4d today and had my first OB appointment last week. I loved him and the office they are all really great. They were really interested in our IVF process, and treated me like a "special" patient. Our next visit is at 12 weeks, we have an NT scan and will get to hear the heartbeat with the doppler. I can't wait, I feel like that visit will be a huge milestone for us.

Ultrasound Update!

Today was my last ultrasound for the fertility doctor and I was released to the OB! We did the last PIO last night (won't miss that!)and I'm tapering down the estrogen pills and will be done with those in a week or so. Today's ultrasound went great (once we got in there), the machine was broken and we had to wait an hour and a half. It was worth it though :) I was so surprised at how much bigger the baby looks in just a week! You can actually tell which end is the head now. It measured right on track. I can't believe how much better I feel after today, it feels more and more real every day! Our first OB appointment is next Monday, but I will have to wait quite some time now for another ultrasound. I am not looking forward to that, I've been so spoiled by these frequent peeks. Here is an updated picture!

7 week ultrasound

It went really good! The heart rate was 136, the tech said it was perfect and our litle blob meaured right on track! Putting last weeks picture and this one next to each other I can't believe the difference a week makes! Here's another pic! In the first one the little cicle on the left in the yolk sac (it's "food")everytime they say yolk, I think of a baby chick! The 2nd pic is just a different view. (I know the pics are really small, they get a bit bigger if you click on them)
