30 days and counting

One month from today I will have my first prenatal visit.
I'm a tad bit annoyed that it is so far out especially with my past miscarriages but oh well I can be patient. I will be exactly 9 weeks pregnant on our appointment day, so at least when we do see bug up on screen he/she will be looking a little more like a baby and less like a sea creature lol. Also there will be a good strong heartbeat and we'll get to see bug moving and dancing all over the place! Oh my gosh it makes me so excited and giddy just thinking about it! Seeing our baby for the first time! After that appointment we will probably start working out our plan to tell our families and after they all know we shall announce to everybody else that we know.

So far I haven't had many symptoms. I have been tired and seem to be eating more now (but I am making sure that it is all healthy foods not junk! I know I am going to gain weight in the next 9'ish months and should gain around 25lbs but I want it to be healthy weight not junk food weight). My breasts aren't as sore as they were last week, which is nice, because they really had been killing me last week.

So for now rather than worry myself I am just going to consider myself blessed not to have any bad pregnancy symptoms because I know that in the next few weeks they will probably sneak up on me and I'll be feeling miserable. Lol. But I will take feeling like poo everyday so long as we get to bring home a healthy baby!


  1. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you! I had two invitro babies so I know what you're going through. 16 years ago, they didn't have pills. Instead, a 2 1/2 inch intramuscular shot in the hip every night. It was worth it. My youngest graduated from her middle school yesterday and will be a freshman in fall! My son will soon be driving! It goes by soooo fast!

  2. Great attitude and best wishes towards your healthy and happy baby. And when I carried my son I had no bad pregnancy things to deal with so it does happen sometimes that you don't have to go through that. :)
    I'm visiting you via Thursday Have a cup of Joe and am following you on GFC

  3. Congrats!! How fun :) New follower from the Thurs Blog hop!!

  4. When I was pg-my appt was at 8 weeks. it drove me crazy. I literally called every single OB on our plan trying to get an earlier appt.
    I explained over and over that I was high risk, on meds that were dangerous to pregnancy. Even my primary doc tried to get me into a high-risk (needed an ob to refer me).
    Now, since my m/c, my OB said to tell her receptionist that she said an ASAP appt. should I get pg again. I pray daily I get to say that to the receptionist one day soon.
    Someone else told me that I should have ask to talk to the nurse at the OB's office-that SHE would probably have given me an earlier appt (worth a try for you). Sounds like you should get early monitoring and blood tests...

  5. Congrats!!! Hopefully the appointment goes well!!!
