10 weeks 2 days – threw up.

I have kind of not been caught up in making updates here.  Still keep wondering if I am better off creating a separate pregnancy blog, but for now have created a separate category (“pregnancy”)

 I found out some awful news today – one of my IF and IVF buddies miscarried her baby for the second time after her second IVF :`( I cannot even express how that has made me feel. I was so used to and happy with us being pregnant together. And knowing the pain of miscarriage personally, it’s like I feel this pain myself.

I know that no words make it better. And only time and happy endings do. I hope that anyone who reads this prays for her today.

 I had my 10 week appointment on the 2nd and it was very quick. Basically just a sonogram – and a quick one at that. The baby measured on time (has grown so much!) and the ob.gyn sent us on our merry way, scheduling the next appt in 4 weeks. Good thing is we are doing the end of 1st trimester screening in 2 weeks, so will hopefully see the baby and progress again.

The nausea has been pretty bad, and today I finally threw up. I thought it was just getting better and there, out of nowhere it got worse. Somehow though, I’m getting the hang of it. When you feel a certain way 24-7, you start getting used to the feeling.

I finally told everyone at work also and it went extremely well. Leaving work I was thinking thank God for IVF. I don’t know where I would have been without it, and it was like this life saving thing that helped me start feeling like I can belong in the normal world again.

For everyone embarking on that journey, I wish them so much luck. And to all the women who have to go through so much crap, my heart is right there with you.
