Car Accident

This morning on my ride to work I rearended someone who stopped on a dime so they wouldnt rear end another person who turned without a blinker.

It was terrible. I tightened up slammed on the breaks and hit her. I was crying and freaking out. I am 15 weeks pregnant with a miracle IVF baby and something so stupid can happen in a second and take it all away from us. The seatbelt tightened around my lower abdomen and by the time the cops arrived (an hour after i called) I was very crampy and starting to get super nervous. The other woman was okay. She was a sister of some sort and prayed with me for the baby as we were leaving to go to the hospital. I am convinced now that something worse would have happen had I continued my route to work today...instead God sent a religious woman for me to rearend and pray for me before I got checked out to be okay.

We got to the ER and nobody was there we got right in. I lost another pound. Still have been pretty sick so... makes sense. All my vitals were good strong heartbeat for the baby. And then they did an ultrasound....UNBELIEVABLE. The baby was kicking and punching and flipping... It was priceless, Jason screamed HOLY SHIT did you see that!!! he kept commenting on the profile of our small baby. nose mouth eyes sucking thumb taking gulps of fluid. rolling around so we could see the spine, the feet, the long legs and arms all five fingers. I was in awe and so glad baby was okay. I was so worried I might see a picture of a baby with no movements and heartbeat. I am so blessed. A true reminder how precious everyday of this pregnancy is.

thank you God.

13 weeks tommorow

I cant even believe that! How crazy... we are in the second trimester.

The second trimester!!! I am crying typing this. I felt the baby flutter a few times today. It is glorious. It is the smallest feeling but it is magnificent. I never thought I could make it this far.

The nausea isnt gone but it is less than it was. Headaches are in full force right now. The extra flem/ saliva is killing me. Cravings are too :) My husband makes the best apple crisp!

We had another milestone, and bought the dresser changer. So now the nursery has a crib all set up with bedding and a dresser changer.

We have another dr appt at 16 weeks. That feels like a long time in between appointments.
That makes me feel unsettled, but the doppler helps. My nightly routine now is to hear the heartbeat and a nightly tai-bo session. Active baby :)

12 Weeks

I don't know why but this feels like the biggest milestone for us. I am starting to come out of the constant nausea KNOCK ON WOOD. I am coming into the extreme fatigue. My Husband has been absolutely wonderful. He is waiting on me hand and foot. Worries about everything. Took my nail polish away because he thought it would be bad for the baby, hhaha but even funnier...I Went to the ocean the other day and before I left he said you wont go in the water will you??? I said umm yah, and he said are you allowed to go in the ocean?? I said YES why?! He said i dont know...Ocean monsters...hahahahahahaa. SO CUTE.

My nipples are growing along with everything else and now they are dry and so so so itchy. UGG that's the worst. does anyone else experience this with their pregnancies?? I had this last time before the miscarriage too.

The crib is set up and the medicine fridge is out. I am now at the point where I would like to give away my extra meds. I have some follistim, 2 boxes of Menapur, and extra needles and sanitary wipe things. If anyone is interested please let me know and give me your private email so i can mail them to you.

Thursday I have my first official ob appointment. I hope to see my gummy bear again. If I had to guess I would say I have a pink ballerina in there. The heartbeat on the Doppler is 170-167 consistently.

My boobs are porn star quality now. they have gone up 2 sizes. my nails are strong and long and beautiful for the first time ever, and my super thick hair is even thicker.

I love my baby so much already. I cant wait to meet him or her. I listen to the heartbeat like 2 times a day at least and imagine what it will be like to hold that little piece of me and Jason. Close to my chest, rocking, singing sweet lullabies to My Baby* oh my gosh. It brings me to tears just to think about it.

Bistos, Hi Bebe

I just got gifted a Bistos Hi-BEBE doppler. And I have heard my baby's heartbeat three times today :) (170)

I got to show my husband for the first time what our baby sounds like in there. Best moment ever. It makes all the sickness and symptoms worth it completely.

I love my baby (I think it is a girl)
