I’ve been meaning to update for so long and just have been putting it off mainly because I don’t have anything new to report! So far I’m measuring right on track (9 weeks today!) and stopped all of my estrogen and progesterone medications last week when I “graduated” from the fertility clinic! (Yay!) I thought that I would be worried to stop the hormones so soon, but I was actually very at ease with that decision. I took it as a sign that things are progressing and I shouldn’t compare when others stop medication to my own stopping point.
I must admit, that lately, I’ve been feeling like a cave-woman. Not getting out much because of morning sickness and not too much seems to help, though I hate to even mention this because I don’t want to complain. It feels so odd to be at a different place in life- a place I’ve been praying for for so long that now that I’m actually here, I don’t quite feel like I belong yet! I don’t know how to blog like an expectant Mother. Part of me wants to follow trend and do a pregnancy tracker (when I have the energy and actually begin to show!) and another part of me just wants to avoid causing anyone any pain that I would rather skip it altogether. So I’m just not sure what to do. I think I’m probably a little over sensitive right now, but I hate that I could possibly be the cause of anyone to be reminded of what they don’t have yet.
My next appointment is in a couple of days and I am really looking forward to having my first appointment where hopefully baby will be delivered, although I will miss seeing my Nurse coordinator every week at the fertility clinic! I’m anxious to see the Hospital, meet the staff and see the rooms. A friend of mine who is also pregnant said they give ultrasounds at every appointment so I am just hoping that’s true and I will get to see baby fairly often! I will try and be better about updating, just know I’m following you all and cheering you on!
