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!
