Honestly my husband and nanny are saints. My husband comes home early from work on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday every week and my nanny stays later on Tuesdays and Thursdays. My hubby makes everyone dinner, bathes the kids. He's basically their mom and dad right now. I spent time with them when I can but being on bed rest has made it really hard.

I’m feeling a little better about it all emotionally. For now. I haven’t had anymore bleeding at all, not even brown spotting, and the baby is very easy to hear on the doppler. He sounds so so strong this morning. I still have a little over a week until my ultrasound but I’m trying to be strong and not stress. I’ve lofted the bedrest a little bit. I’m still not picking up the kiddos if I can avoid it and I’m not going on a shopping spree where I’m standing for hours but I’m not stressing out every time I have to get. Up to go to the bathroom or make something to eat.

In other news I don’t have any nausea or vomiting but I only seem to want junk food. It is terrible. I don’t even know what to say. Anytime o think of eating anything healthy the thought makes me want to get sick. But chips, candy, ice cream, you name it I can eat no problem. It’s frustrating but I’m trying to be kind to myself and not put too much pressure.

I had my NT scan and everything is looking great. Baby is fabulous and measuring 4 days ahead. My chances of down syndrome or/or trisomy 13 are extremely low. They didn't check my placenta in depth like I thought they would and were supposed to but he did say from what he saw from the non detailed over the belly ultrasound that he's not seeing that it's over the cervix anymore. I'm really hoping he's right but I would have liked for them to actually check. I've emailed my OB and asked her if she could do an ultrasound to check because 1. I WANT TO HAVE SEX- we haven't since the transfer per the IVF doctors recommendation, and 2. I need to get back to normal activity with my kids and get off this damn modified bedrest. I am just so sick of it and if it is no longer covering the cervix I want to know.

Am I insane?

Well, I heard from the doctor on Thursday evening and she said that as long as I haven't had another bleed episode she is totally ok with me coming off of modified bedrest, having sex, and picking up my babies every now and then. She did say it doesn't seem like the placenta is an issue although it is still low lying but not over the cervix. I am over the moon as you can imagine. I feel normal again. I've had a cup of coffee and it is the best thing I've tasted in a long time and I'm starting to get more energy. Must be that I'm getting out of the first trimester? Don't get me wrong, I'm still in bed by 8pm, asleep by 9 but I just don't feel this burning desire to always be sleeping.

I had a checkup with my OB yesterday and things are looking great. Baby had a strong heartbeat and I'm already feeling him move around, especially at night when I'm laying in bed. My OB did mention that I "haven't gained much weight" but I'm trying not to worry about it. I have been eating, mostly junk, but only after the morning hours. I don't seem to get hungry in the morning. She was telling me it's really important that I eat though because I had GD in the past. It's just so hard when you're not hungry.

I have resumed normal activity and haven't had any bleeding so I'm going to take that as a good sign. I have an anatomy scan sometime in June and we'll know more about the placenta at that point.

Don’t worry about the weight. I gained none until well in 2nd tri with first. And the second I gained barely 17 lbs. as long as baby is growing and healthy that’s all that matters
I’m so glad things are progressing well. Have you announced the pregnancy yet?

Thanks Mo! Sometimes doctors can drive me nuts with all of their "should have" talk. It can be exhausting. She didn't make it seems like it was a dire situation but even mentioning it was just like ugh .... great. I will try not to worry. The baby has been growing like a weed so I think everything is probably fine.

I did announce it. I actually announced it at 6.5 weeks .... because I'm insane like that. Most of the people in my life know that I struggle with infertility and I'm really an open book about it all. I also decided that if I were to miscarry I would want a lot of support instead of dealing with it all on my own. My mom was actually visiting during my FET so she knew I was pregnant from like 3 weeks when I got my positive test

I'm not prepping a nursery for this baby since we plan on co-sleeping so I feel sort of ... blah. I'm excited don't get me wrong but I don't have much to plan. I've been trying to keep busy by organizing and cleaning the other areas of the house that need work. We just got an office desk yesterday and hubby assembled it last night, our bookshelf is coming soon, and I need to finish the little details in the spare room.

I also want to get a family mural put up on the walls in our living room but I haven't gotten around to it. Part of the problem is that I have so many pictures of our family that I love - we get professional pictures taken whenever we go on vacation plus a bunch that I've taken over the 19 months they've been with us and it's really hard to go through them and pick only my favorites. I'm really hoping to get around to it very soon though, hopefully before the new baby arrives.
