Lilypie Pregnancy tickers

We are 9 weeks pregnant today.

I can’t believe how fast it’s going.  Today is the last day I have to give myself a hormone injection in the ass with a giant needle.  That’s a celebration all in itself.

But today, I am finally feeling pregnant.

I slept last night for 10 hours!  I passed out on the couch around 8pm and didn’t wake up until 6am.  You would think I would be feeling pretty good, huh?  Nope.  I am still SO tired and have been very “barfy” all day.  I have never had traditional “morning sickness.”  Instead, I just get waves of nausea that comes and goes, usually in the afternoons (go figure).  But I woke up this morning and have been sick all day.  It sucks!  I just want to curl up and go back to bed with my pitcher of peppermint tea.

We had our last appointment on Wednesday where little baby Burnsie was measuring 2 days ahead (8 weeks and 8 days) with a heart rate of 171.  He was beautiful!  You’ll have to pardon me for calling it a “he” but we ended up giving it the nickname “baby Burnsie” and well…it sounds a little masculine doesn’t it?  My IP’s have a girl already, so maybe it’s a sign of boys to come.  hehe.

So now I’ll be under the care of my OB/Gyn.  It’s bittersweet because I just love Dr. Acacio and the staff at the fertility clinic, but it’s good to be moving along.

I guess that’s about it on the surrogacy front.  So far so good!
