Officially Pregnant

Our infertility, miscarriage, IVF, and pregnancy journey x 2 (still waiting on pregnancy #2)

Short & Sweet

on May 27, 2014

I flew in from Boston this morning at 1 a.m.  I am tired.  Thus, a very short and very sweet post in bullet points because frankly, I’m too damn exhausted to write full sentences.


  • Husband had conference in Boston.  IVF credit card points got me a free ticket to go with.  Walked 20+ miles in 72 hours.  Holy shit.  Saw some cool things.  Ate good food.  Bought Baby K cute Boston shirt.




  • Officially entered the 2nd trimester on Friday.  Holy shit.  Never thought we’d make it this far.


  • Had 1st official ob appointment – heard heartbeat (153 bpm) and talked her into an ultrasound.  Baby looks healthy.  Waved at me.  Doc so excited she jammed ultrasound thingy on my belly up and down to try and make it do it again.  No luck.  I know what I saw.  Next visit July 1 for gender reveal and body measurements.  Wahoo!

One of five pics today!

  • Doc said, “This is your 4th pregnancy, correct”.  Hit me like a ton of bricks.  Yes, yes it is.


  • I can stop taking the baby aspirin now.  One less pill.


  • Tried to stop taking the Diclegis.  Bad idea.  Still 3 pills.
