That was uneventful

I had my 8 week appointment. Mostly, we just sat in the nurse's office and went through checklists on my health and my family history. Which is pretty unexciting. And they drew blood. Whoo Hooo.

I don't go back until 5/28, and at that point I actually meet with a doc... I'll be 12 weeks 5 days then! Unbelievable. I'm really glad I decided to go see my fertility doc one last time (5/13) - I'll get a peek at the little guy and some reassurances. I know that things are going really well, and on the one hand, I know that people have been having babies for millions of years. And that there isn't a need for another u/s or a doc visit between now and next month - but it sure will make me feel good to see it again!

In other news, I'm going to finally start going to the gym/walking again. I didn't really do much during my IVF cycle - I was bike riding and swimming at the gym... but stopped after transfer. And then got this stupid cough/cold that won't stop, and have been SO TIRED I couldn't fathom hauling myself to the gym. I feel like now I need to get back in gear - I most certainly don't want or need to gain 60 pounds with this pregnancy!!!

Congrats on a good appt! Great news on working out again. I remember when I started to workout after the 1st tri ended...wow, I felt great! Good luck with it all.

You will be fine. You are pregnant(even though I know its hard for you to believe) and you will make the right choices for you. I'll be sending good vibes your way. I am so glad all your appts. are coming out normal. Woohoo!!!!!!!!

Exercising is so difficult for me. Good luck!

So, now that you're preggers and all we really need to go out for tea soon. Yay for boring and uneventful appts!

OB appointments seem kind of uneventful after the RE I'm afraid. But I'm glad you get another look at the baby before the next appointment. Otherwise that 4 week wait would be intolerably wrong!

Uneventful is great, and I understand the urge to peek. I'd be lost without my monthly growth scans,

I know it's hard to just take it on faith that the little guy is doing ok in there-- another peek would have been nice. But 12 weeks will be here before you know it! I also have to get back to exercising, but I am so incredibly tired that it's hard to imagine doing that after I get home from work. Taking the dogs out completely does me in.

Are you sure you don't have a secondary infection? You've been sick a long time. But I guess you could also have the increased mucus of pregnancy--along with the saliva thing, taht seems unfair.
So so glad you get another peek.
