I went in for my second Beta. It didn't double but the nurse said that it is rising wonderfully. :)
Took two 1 1/2 hr naps, trying to make it through the day. I don't remember being so exhausted when I was pregnant with KJ. (I'm thinking it may have a lot more to do with the daily Progesterone in oil injections. I read a lot about "fatigue".)
Day 33, 10/31
Happy Halloween! We were a nice concoction of fun. hee hee!
|Psy (Gangnam Style), a scarecrow, Cleopatra, a bumble bee, and a hotdog! :)|
Once my belly firms up a bit I'm sure it will ease my frustrations. I just want to "feel" pregnant, instead of super bloated. I look forward to that change!
Day 34, 11/1:
I'm so happy it's November! October feels like it was all about IVF and this month, I look forward to everything pregnancy! :D It's like a whole new chapter!!! (finally. Praise God!)
I have to order more needles, syringes, and progesterone in oil. That definitely feels like progress. :) It's much, much, better than having to re-order IVF meds (which I had been preparing myself for —just in case.).
I also have to figure out how to get out of this exhaustion funk. All I want to do is sleep and lay down. I have so much cleaning to do and no energy or motivation to do any of it. My hubby works all day and I would love for him to be able to come home to a nice clean house... but lately, he's been coming home to one chore being partially done and finding me in bed. I feel so bad. :(
We are only eight days away from our first "pregnancy ultrasound". It just seems so strange —the idea that there should be a baby (or two) in my uterus, this time around. I can't even count the number of times I have had an ultrasound, due to endo, pcos, or IVF, over the last four and a half years, and seen an empty uterus. I really have forgotten what it will be like to see life in there!! We are SO extremely excited, and thankful to God, every single day!! :D
Last night, as we were getting ready for bed, I told Chris, "Hey hun!"
In a very monotone voice, he responded with a very short, "yup."
lol. He says he is past the point of not believing it anymore. I guess I'm the only one still in the "I can't believe it" stage. Oh well... maybe I'll believe it more once I see what's going on in there, next Friday. :)
