Good morning!

I have the weirdest dreams at night! Today was the first day I've woken up feeling tired, I've had a lot of energy during the day and I seem to just crash in the evening. My body is working hard so I'm going to try and take it easy for a few days. I missed my usual yoga class because i was famished and had to a eat a full dinner. i hate going to yoga full, and ive been so gassy lately i was afraid something embarrassing might happen! I've got family coming in from out of two this weekend, my daughter is having a birthday party. Anther reason I should chill a couple days

I am also trying to get my husband excited about being pregnant. I think he thought it would take longer to conceive, so now he is in disbelief and thinking of all the things we need to do. I would love it if he wild be just be a smidgen more interested I think he will be more on board once we have our first appointment.

How's everyone else doing?

Magpies. Congrats on your Bfp. I think with ivf Bfp you're even more crazy than other ttc bfps's. i think its because your on th rollercoaster from the pill and those injections more thn a month before there's any talk of eggs let alone embies. And you're convinced it won't work too!!! Anyway it's so exciting to have a Bfp so sticky beans for everyone. Xx

Littlelotus ... My bf is kinda in disbelief too but he is being super supportive. We talked about kids but I told him it would probably take at least a yr if not more to conceive bc I thought I'd need Clomid. So imagian his shock when it only took one month! I almost feel bad for him hehe.

So ... At this first appointment ... Are they gonna do an internal ultrasound? I read something about them doing blood work and a regular exam to make sure all is well but I really wanna see the little bean in there and so does everyone else! It's almost as though they don't believe me. Trust me people I'm not faking the nausea and hot flashes!

Bf and I picked out names... I know it's soon but it's exciting. Mason for a boy and Mackenzie (Kenzie) for a girl.

Definitely. I had convinced myself it hadn't worked. So much so I expected the test to be negative even all the signs were pointing to the fact that I was!

Lotus be careful with yoga because I know there are some poses that ate my suitable in pregnancy.

My other half (husband to be, we get married in December) is super excited and supportive. We both wanted this so badly. It's our miracle!!

I think it depends on when you go in for your first appointment. If you go in around 8 weeks, which is what is suggested, they might do a vaginal ultrasound and have a little look see at your cervix (it should turn blue), if you go in earlier they might either have you pee in a cup or draw blood to confirm the pregnancy since it would be too early to see anything with the v-ultrasound. They'll also answer any questions you have, and give you a run down of all your options. You should do some research about what kind of birth you are hoping for.

With my first, I started the pregnancy going to an obstetrician. I think the longest he ever talked to me was 15 minutes. At that point, I realized that wasn't how I wanted the pregnancy and birth to be handled. I ended up going with a Midwife-all my appointments were scheduled for an hour so I could ask any questions I wanted and not feel rushed. The birth was amazing, I did it at a birthing center and ended up having a water birth. They even came to my house a few times after I gave birth to make sure everything was going well, and assist me with nursing if I needed it. I don't think I will ever be able to give birth in a hospital, unless I'm really high risk for some reason.

I'm just saying, before your appointment, research everything and figure out what works for you. Every one has an expectation of what they want their birth experience to be like. One of the most important considerations is how much intervention you're comfortable with.

Research things like episiotimies, caesarians, vacuum extraction, epidurals, what your insurance covers, hospitals in your area, birthing centers in your area, nursing support by the hospital or birthing centers and the statistics for both (what is the rate of all the interventions or how often women need to go to the hospital for intervention), and from there you will start learning more about what is important to YOU and how you want to generate your birthing plan. I would also look up labor doulas, sometimes you can find an apprentice that will help you for little to no money. Even if your partner will be in the delivery room with you, they can be really great about making sure your birth plan is honored. Sometimes when you're in labor, your BF or DH will be so freaked out they just go along with whatever the doctor said, even if it isn't in you best interest. A Doula can help keep things in perspective.


WOW, sorry I just went on a long rant. I basically just purged all the things going through my head right now

Aw thanks for the advice! I know that I want a natural birth. I would really like to go to a birthing center but I know my bf isn't on board for that. I also don't currently have insurance so ill have to go through the state and I'm not sure if they honor birthing centers and midwives. Guess its time to do some research!!

You would be surprised. A lot of states cover birthing centers and natural births, because quite honestly, it's usually half the price to cover you.

Feel a bit meeeah today. Trying combat the ms with nibbling ginger biscuits. Feels better but no appetite. Have to remind myself to eat!! Very tired too. Really busy time for us. I start a new job on Monday (won't they be pleased when I tell them I'm pregnant!!) and we just sold our house so are viewing at the weekend and hoping to move before christmas. I'm not stressed with all this it's all good things.
My only thing is "let's get to 12 weeks".
When can I truly believe its all going to be ok?!?!?!? I guess I'm just tired today.
Anyone else feeling floppy??
