Happy ICLW..and An Update.

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Welcome to any bloggers stopping by as part of ICLW! I missed last months so I am really looking forward to reading some new blogs!!

So who am I and what's my story?

I'm a 26 year old who has been battling with IF, along side my DH. We started TTC in 2009 and have had quite a few hurdles along the way. At the end of 2010 we were told IVF was our best option at conceiving, so we jumped aboard that roller coaster ride. We got our first BFP in December 2010, but sadly our little Bubble was not meant to join us earth side and I miscarried just shy of 8 weeks in January 2011. We then made the decision to change fertility specialists and clinics. So we transferred our 6 frosties and commenced a FET cycle in April 2011. On the 12th May our TWW was over and we were told once again that I was pregnant!Fast forward to now...I am 10w3d pregnant and slowly coming to the realisation that perhaps this little bub is here for the long haul!

So that's us in a nutshell....there's a more detailed TTC history off to the right if you want the nitty gritty!

Yesterday I had my first obstetrician appointment which I have been counting down to since my last scan at 7w6d. I was paranoid that a scan at this appointment would show something wrong...but I am very pleased to share with you all that our little blob is happy and healthy!

Blob is measuring perfect size for dates, and wowed both DH and myself by waving his/her little arms and legs around like crazy. He/she also started rolling around at one point during the scan. DH had a massive grin on his face as the ob pointed out blob's features. This was his first time seeing our little one up on screen and I think he was very excited. I was amazed at how much blob had changed in just a few short weeks..although still alien like, it was definitely looking more like a mini person!!

I didn't get any pictures this time, so will now have to wait until I have the NT scan done before I can share a shot of our blob with you all.

The ob was lovely. I am really happy with my choice of doctor and felt comfortable with her instantly. DH said he liked her too. The rest of the appointment was pretty standard. The doctor took down a lot of my health history details, we discussed why we had gone down the IVF road, medications I am on etc etc. She also took my blood pressure and we had a chat about what I could expect each appointment. I also got my referral for my NT scan and bloods. I have booked the scan for the 8th of July as DH really wants to come. He only went back to work today for 2 weeks, so when he comes home next we will have that to look forward to and then we will possibly start sharing our news with family and friends!

Congrats. It's always a relief when you leave with great news. Good luck with your NT scan!

thank you for commenting on my blog!
It sure helps to know that absence of nausea shouldn't be a red flag... I secretly squeeze my breasts now and then to ensure they're still sore and everything, therefore, is fine :)
