Today I'm 8 weeks pregnant :) I still have not told my family (other than my dad who was here during the IVF), I am holding out till 10 weeks. Once we get past that milestone I think I will start to feel more confident.
Monday was my birthday and I had a quiet day off, it was nice and I spent the time reading in a chair next to the fireplace. It was marred slightly by the call from my mum, which inevitably turned to her discussing babies with me, and whether I would contemplate IVF, or maybe I could use my sister-in-law as a surrogate. She even managed to tell me that my SIL had offered up her services - I mean that's beautiful and such a selfless thing to do BUT we weren't asking. I hate the idea that my fertility (or lack of) has become a discussion point, and they can freely chat about my personal life and how to "fix" it.
I could have told her on the phone that there was no need, instead I said that I was happy with my current situation and that I was taking life as it goes. I know she is trying to be helpful, but seriously she makes me want to scream!!!
Since last week the m/s has been ramping up, it changed from all day nausea into vomiting, and I had 5 lovely days where everything I ate after 11am did not stay long in my system. Yesterday I woke to no symptoms, no nausea, no vomiting nothing - I was completely freaked out. I was sure something was wrong, it was 7weeks 5days last time (although we didn't find out till 10wks) so I was on the verge of tears all day. I don't want to be that woman that phones her RE and demands an ultrasound because she is freaking out. Luckily around 8pm the hiccup/burps and the nausea came back, and this morning I feel the threat of vomiting looming.
It's insane, I spent the last 5 days miserable wishing for a break, and when I got it I freaked out and wished I was sick again.... *sigh*
I need to start taking belly shots, I love the idea of a progress photo. I will make DH take one when he wakes later today. I weighted myself this am and I'm down 2lbs so that makes me feel happy - I am worried about gaining too much with this LO, esp since I am definitely not at my ideal weight right now!
According to WTE the baby is now the size of an olive! I think that's adorable :)
