    Perinatologist apt tomorrow, looking forward to seeing the growth!

    I turned 30 over the weekend, and I was pretty down about that milestone for a few days, but a few awesome friends and great husband did a fantastic job at cheering me up. Worked from home twice last week due to pelvic pain and still slowly weaning off the Zofran pump.

    QOTW: morning sickness (hyperemesis) clearly worst for me, and is 10x worse than with DD. Hopefully reaching the halfway point will clear this up.

  • 1. How many weeks along are you? 12w2d
    2. Any medical updates (appointments, ultrasounds, tests/results, etc.)? Nada! Next appt sept 11
    3. How are you feeling lately? Sick still, but the aversions are letting up a bit.
    4. QOTW: What's the worst pregnancy complaint you have had so far and how does this compare with your previous pregnancy? It is so hard to be so incredibly hungry all the time, yet nothing sounds good at all! I have never been so hungry in my life. I'm regularly waking around 3-4 am nauseous and starving. If I don't get up and eat I feel yuck all day the next day. None of this happened with my daughter. I had cravings, but I was never so hungry like this!

    2. Had our anatomy scan today and we have a perfect healthy little girl!!! Someone pinch me, this is the first time I feel like we can really get excited!!! In more amazing news my cervix is holding up really well and I may even get off the bed rest, the sch moved away from the placenta and is no longer considered dangerous. I never could have imagined that this appointment would have gone this well.
    3. I'm feeling excited and have been moving around more today so I'm not as sore!!
    4. So far the only things that have been worse are the earlier bed rest and my food aversions are not really going away.

    TTC#1 May 2009- July 2010 on our own with no luck

    Started with RE in August 2010, dx with unexplained IF and then finally our 3rd IUI cycle using Follistim and Trigger resulted in our wonderful little man.  Born 12/2/11

    TTC#2 Never really prevented, but were careful early on as Dr. reccomended

    Surprise BFP 12/16/13, started progesterone immediately as first numbers came back low, but betas were good.  Progesterone wasnt enough. Natural MC 12/24/13.

    Back with RE as of January 2014...
