US Appointment - and Welcome to ICLW!

For those of you visiting for the first time from ICLW, welcome, and thanks for visiting.  I will tell you right now that I am pregnant, if you didn't already figure that out by the ticker at the top of my page.  My Husband A and I are SO excited about it right now.  I just had my Second US appointment this morning, and I finally feel like I can relax and start to enjoy being pregnant.  Its amazing to me how much infertility made me feel like I couldn't really get attached to this pregnancy until now.  I totally understand if you are still struggling with IF, secondary IF, or just generally not being pregnant yet and don't want to stick around.  I've been there, I've resented some of my IF sisters who got preggers before me (there I said it.  I don't like to admit that I've been that petty, but I have, and I'm gonna guess we all have at some point or another.).  If you don't want to stick around to hear me gush about my pregnancy, I get it.  I'm trying to level out my posting to not always be about having a baby, but the truth is it's the main thing in my life right now.  I appreciate you stopping by, and I hope you'll find something useful in my ramblings.

No on to today's awesome news!  Everything look great with the baby!  We're measuring 1-2 days ahead at 9 weeks 6 days or 10 weeks depending on which measurement she looked at.  The baby's heartbeat was 174, and my blood pressure is 120/80.  Our official due date is April 20, right in line with my ticker above!  We also got some really cool pictures today, here are the 2 best:



I cannot begin to tell you how excited we are.  I really hope all of you who are still waiting get to feel this excitement REAL soon!

  1. Yay! Baby looks wonderful! FTR, I don't think you were being petty at all. This whole pregnancy/birth stuff is complicated and heavy. This IS beginning the most important and exciting journey of your life--embrace and enjoy every second of it, and gush away. You'll only be pregnant with this baby once. :)

  5. Happy ICLW and congrats! I'm 20 weeks along and I was concerned about all the ladies still dealing with IF at the beginning too. Most assured me that it gave them hope. Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months! I have a diaper bag giveaway going on at my blog if you're interested!

  6. Congrats! I'm going to be 17 weeks tomorrow and finally was able to feel relaxed about this pregnancy about a week ago when the baby started kicking. Until that point I worried myself sick that this baby wouldn't stick either. I hope you have a wonderful pregnancy! :)
