Well It looks like I may be getting a little thicker. I was going to try and wear the same thing every picture but I think I should switch outfits cause I don't think that dress will make it to the end. It is not maternity and I don't want to stretch it beyond its means, LOL! We are going shopping in the states at the outlet mall in Waterloo this weekend and I am pretty excited about that. Wish we knew the sex of the baby but I guess we will have to wait to go shopping another time for all that baby/nursery stuff.
I guess I am still not showing that much if my boobs stick out farther than my belly! PSST, that belly you see is not baby it is the gut I have always had I just can't seem to suck it in anymore! LOL!!! We had another Doctor's appointment yesterday and everything is still on track. As soon as he put the doppler on my stomache it picked up the baby's heartbeat right away. He said "that was easy". Felt like a staples commercial for a moment. Anyways, I will try and update every week with a new picture.
Everything went well today, still don't know the sex, but I told Mike that it looks very feminine to me! LOL! We go back on July 17th, a week later than I thought cause we agreed to be in a stupid study! Thay should have told us the time before hand otherwise I wouldn't have agreed. Don't these people know that I need to know ASAP??!! Geesh! The heartbeat was still beating strong at 154 bpm so that is good and we got to see all sorts of things like feet, arms, hands, the baby yawning, it's stomache and heart. We even saw the goods but I couldn't tell one way or the other. I didn't see a hot dog but I also didn't see the tell all three lines of a girl so who knows? Time will tell. I can't believe I have to wait another 5 weeks. Time seems to stand still these days, however, not as long as it did when we were actually waiting to do the IVF so I should consider myself lucky. That's all for now, I have another docs appointment on the 18th of June and will let you all know how that goes. I will be in my 2nd trimester at the end of this week so that is a relief. Can't wait for the 17th!
Simply said, Infertility sucks! I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. That being said, it has taught me a lot about strength, compassion and patience. I am extremely fortunate to have conceived a perfect, beautiful daughter via my 1st IVF cycle. I am hoping that we will be just as fortunate this time around.
