This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

3 Month Update

I am already 12 weeks along in this pregnancy! Things have been going swimmingly. No morning sickness whatsoever, and I do believe the fatigue is getting better. I still have mucho issues sleeping thru the night....oh well! I definitely have a belly and I have been thrifting maternity clothes when I can.

Yesterday was my ultrasound to test nuchal translucency and growth. Crown-rump length was 6cm and baby is measuring a couple of days ahead of schedule. We finally saw some arm/leg movement, and it was amazing how you could even see the umbilical cord pulsing on the US. The HR was 154.

 One week from today we will be enjoying the beaches of Cancun! I am so ready for a beach vacation. Our last one was as a family in the panhandle of Florida in 2012. It was amazing there, and now I can't wait to return to the Caribbean!
My next prenatal checkup is in 2 weeks so my doc will probably go over the results of today's ultrasound with me then. I am maintaining a weight gain of +4lb over my pre-IVF weight which I think is pretty good for the 1st trimester--which BTW ends next week!!!!
