Eight weeks! I’m two months pregnant now. This feels like an incredible milestone, four more weeks until I’m done first trimester.
I’m already starting my “graduation” process from the fertility clinic. My clinic, Create, cares for their pregnant patients through their first trimester, but then you move on to a regular OBGYN. Well, I already have my first appointment next week with my OBGYN who will eventually deliver this little sprout in November. It was great to get the appointment booked, I’m excited to meet him and see the hospital where our care will be. I’m still seeing my fertility doctor weekly as well for now.
For pregnancy symptoms, today was the WORST “morning” sickness I’ve had so far. It started at 5am and settled down about 3pm. I hadn’t even really had much in the way of nausea the past few days and foolishly thought maybe I was past that point. Oddly, I don’t mind the mild nausea; it’s a reminder things are working and it’s manageable throughout the day. And I promised I wouldn’t complain about pregnancy symptoms because it was SO difficult getting to this point. Today was tough though. I was very late for work (good thing I have flex hours and late is relative) but I threw up on the commute in and it was difficult sitting at my desk all day. I ate crackers and drank ginger ale at my desk.
Its eased up now, but I’m taking it easy tonight to keep myself calm and still. Plus, I’m tired from having been up so early and having such a rough go with my stomach today. I’m glad most days aren’t like this, but I can handle some days like this, it’s all worth it to get to be a mom <3
Did I mention that DH lost our 2nd ultrasound photo? That’s why it’s not posted. He’s in a bit of trouble for that :P He promises to get a replacement when we go to our next appointment (hopefully they have one), but you better believe I’ll be carrying the photos home from now on ;)
