Dealing with infertility can exhaust all leave that has been saved up.  Now that I am pregnant, I have been taking leave without pay half days to attend appointments every two weeks.  I received approval from the superintendent and explained to the office manager what was going on.  Well, you can imagine my surprise when after my principal signed my leave slip, the following was written:  You need to schedule these appointments out of school if possible.  First, I have to drive over 50 miles to get these appointments with my RE, then they have the same office hours as the school's hours.  I repressed the urge to repond with:  "No shit Sherlock- unfortunately, it's not possible douche!"  I always schedule my appointments for the afternoon, so I only have to take a half day.  It was really annoying, and it still pisses me off.  Grrrr!

8 weeks 6 days

We went to the ultrasound on Monday, and everything is still on target.  The HB is 170 still.  Everything is going great.  I am exhausted, so this will be kept real short.  I have another ultrasound May 6.  Thanks everyone for the kind words and encouragement!

Infertility Awareness Week

I am eternally grateful for my blogging community.  Community is the key word.  Blogging has allowed me the opportunity to not feel alone and given me the strength to fight this battle.  I appreciate everyone in my blogging community: my readers and the bloggers I follow.

7 weeks

I am officially 7 weeks and 3 days pregnant.  We will have another ultrasound on April 22.  I have had the following symptoms- food aversions, sore boobs, nausea and fatigue.  Over the weekend, I have enjoyed a lot of naps!  I am so grateful for this blessing, and I pray it continues on.  Sometimes, I feel a lot of guilt.  I hate being nauseated, and everytime I feel naseasated, I feel guilty for not enjoying it, because there is someone out there would love to experience this; it's the two sides of me-infertile me and pregnant me.  I am really anxious to get past the first trimester, I feel like I am completely walking on eggshells and would love the chance to take a breath.  I am so happy for  pray that each one of my blogging sisters out there will get an opportunity to experience this; until then, much love and prayers for them.

6 weeks 4 days

I went for my ultrasound appointment.  Baby was measuring exactly on target at 6weeks 4 days.  There is only one gummy bear.  TBH, I was a little disappointed two didn't make it, but I know this is safer.  I was amazed at the heartbeat.  You could see it just a pulsing.  This baby had a heartbeat of 170.  I was supper excited about that!  I have another appointment in two weeks.
