yesterday (9w2d)

I had my last appointment with my RE, Dr. M.anara, and my first OB appointment! The RE did a final ultrasound, which was incredible. We saw the baby two weeks ago and it was a flashing tiny blob; yesterday, the baby looked like a baby. There were two arms and two legs and the arms and legs were moving. We were truly amazed. I didn't realize how nervous I had been about what was going on in there until after the ultrasound, when I cried tears of relief all the way home.

The OB appointment was boring in comparison: peed in a cup, gave blood, had a pelvic exam, discussed screening tests, and was told what foods to eat, etc. This appointment made me feel... pregnant.

After the OB appointment, I drove back to the RE's office to donate my left over Follistim. It felt good to give it away. It felt like I was really believing in this pregnancy. I hope and pray that women who otherwise could not afford injectibles get babies out of that box.


  1. isn't it crazy how they grow?

    the thing that i still can't get my head around is how they go from a blob to a creature who has waking periods and sleeping periods.

    i'm so glad things are going well xx
