9 week update

I have been a bit quiet on here lately, mainly because I am really struggling with my new found symtoms - aren't they just awful? I already feel like maybe just one child will be enough for me, even though I have wanted 4 for forever.

I've recorded a couple of videos about what's bveen happening over the past few weeks, couldn't fit it into one so had to do 2, that will teach me to update more often. Check out my picture of my little bambino - super cute!



Just for your information, the app I mentioned is called Sprout, and I really like it. If anyone requires more info on the books I bought, just message me and I will tell you more, dont really want to bore anyone if they are not interested.

Thank you to everyone who has been thinking and asking of me, hopefully I will be able to keep to my plan of updating every week. Please encourage me.

I really feel like this pregnancy is going really slow, I can twait to be in my 2nd trimester and hopefully rid of these horrible symptoms. I dont want to complain too much because I wanted to be pregnant and I'd rather have these syptoms than still be trying to get pregnant each month.

So lets see what happens at my next appointments.

Take care guys xx

4wks 4days.........................

So I'm officially 4wks & 4days into my pregnancy, still very early indeed. This is consistent with what I thought based on my ovulation date which I believe was probably August 1st. This puts my EDD at 26th April 2013 (2 days after our 3rd wedding anniversary).

I had to wait for over an hour at the EPU(early pregnancy unit) to get my scan done and I was getting more and more nervous and I could just feel butterflies in my stomach worrying about what could go wrong.

As I was getting scanned in a different clinic, I had a new doctor that I was not used to so I was a bit apprehensive going into the consultation room. The doctor asked a few questions about my medical history  and about my cycles. Since my last period started on June 23rd, she said I would be about 8wks pregnant, but I told her that was impossible as I have a very good idea of my ovulation date.

While she was performing the transvaginal scan I was able to see the screen and quickly noticed the gestational sac was in my uterus -pheww!! I was not too worried about an ectopic pregnancy, but it was still a relief. The doctor was also able to see the yolk sac which was good, there was no heartbeat as yet as she said it would be too early. She said that what she saw was consistent with a 4-5wk pregnancy. She also checked both my ovaries and confirmed that I ovulated from my life ovary which was enlarged and contained a corpus luteum. Finally, she recommended I go back in 3 weeks time for a scan which should reveal a heartbeat - I hope the time passes quickly, because it's all I think about.

They gave me this report to keep, which is basically a summary of the scan.

My next steps are

  • to research and buy a few pregnancy books
  • buy a bathroom scale to weigh myself
  • book an appointment with my GP
  • start eating a more healthy diet and drink more water
Hopefully, these will occupy me until my next scan in 3 weeks - if anyone has any books to recommend, that would be a great start.

As I said in my previous post, I am not really having any symptoms, I guess that's because I am still really early.

Thanks to everyone who congratulated me and sent lovely wishes, I really appreciate it. 

That's it for now, God Bless xx

Time for a little break - CD6

So I'm taking a short break from the Clomid because I have to go away for a wedding, which will be during my fertile period, also, I'm going alone so I won't have the opportunity to babydance with hubby.

Here is an update video of how clomid round 2 ended.

Hope you're all well and good ladies, its been a while since I posted, it just doesn't come naturally to me when I get bad news. Sorry!

On Monday evening my SIL called to let us know she is now 10wks preggers with her second, of-course I am so happy for them, I know that the timing is right for them and that it's what they wanted. So now I have 2 SIL's that are pregnant and I'm still struggling to get a BFP. I am not feeling sorry for myself or anything, but I just wish it could be my turn too.

Anyway, thats it xxxx

Progesterone results & CD29 Update

Results are in........87.3nmol/l so a definate ovulation and pretty high for a single follicle ovulation.

I'm happy about this because I was beginning to doubt my ovulation, my boobs are only just beginning to feel sore, this is so bizarre for me. My temps are still high, so that's good too.

Ive not invested much emotion into this cycle, I'm hopeful but whatever happens I'm fine.

Not much more to say here, keepin it short and sweet.
