after a six yr infertility oddesy, and 8 rounds of clomid, i am proudly pregnant with my miracle child! this is going to be a scary journey with many ups and downs, but the minute that i get to see you my sweet baby, it will all be worth it. here are my first symptoms of pregnancy and the first tests that i took to find out that you were on the way!
as for symptoms....
about 5dpo i had severe af type cramps about 8 hrs worth
6dpo i had a greenish looking discharge (only once)
about 8dpo i spotted a light pink very small spot, when i wiped
around 8dpo i started getting really tired, like even though i was sleeping in, my sleep pattern totally changed and i wanted to sleep a lot.
very brief spasms in my uterus, like 10-20 minute cramps from 8 dpo till 13 or 14 dpo. i did notice i was peeing more, almost immediately after oing. because my uterus sits on my bladder.
lots of creamy cm, like my panties were soaked all the time, and they actually were soaked with cm.
my breasts were slightly tender, but nothing i really noticed, what i did notice was my areola was darkening, about 13dpo.
a bit hungrier, and really moody.
my lower belly felt "heavy"
the only true indicator for me was the af cramps when af was no where near being due.
as for what we did differently, we changed position, because my uterus is anteverted, a tilted to the side, i researched it online and found that the best position was on my tummy. i only took the mucinex twice, because i had abundant cm even after oing. the only difference is the cm felt warmer. (but eggwhite) after oing.
i took my prenatal and nothing else.
tomorrow i will be six weeks already, and i cant believe that time has blown by, just a week or so ago i found out that you are on the way!!! i still cant believe it. i see the dr on tuesday to find out how things are going with you, you seem to be rather quiet, and not giving me a lot of symptoms i thank god everyday for sending you to me, my sweet. i think that i am leaning towards a nickname for you, ive been calling you "belly" because youre my jelly-belly bean!!!!
hi, jelly bean momma and daddy and your big brother saw you on tuesday at the ultrasound, and we have been so happy ever since, we saw your precious little heart beating, and it looked as though you were looking at us. you were so little and sweet, i cant wait until august when i get to hold you in my arms! we love you jelly belly bean!
hi sweetie, you seem to be growing very fast now, and momma barely recognizes her waistline anymore. im filling in very quickly now, although im not gaining a bunch of wieght. that tells me that you are gaining healthy pounds and not from junk food momma is now taking insulin and is following a very healthy diet, we have our first dr's appt with the high risk clinic(maternal fetal medicine) on wed (jan 4th), and i cant wait to hear how things are progressing
today i had another u/s done and i got to see you again, you are growing nicely. but my visit was bittersweet. momma and daddy had to say goodbye to your sister today because she was not feeling well. we have decided to name her bella grace. one day you will understand what has happened to your precious sister, and that she had to go away for a while and that she loved us all very much. momma and daddy love you both very much, and i pray that the next 7 months go by very quickly, i cant wait to hold you in my arms.
in memory of Bella Grace with us for 8 weeks 2 days.
although you were with us for a short time, our love for you continues to grow, although we could not hold you, or see you smile, you will always be a part of us. this is not goodbye my sweet, this is only a see you soon, because one day we will meet again, until then i love you.
mommas feeling better today, but still very tired. you are being very good, and not giving momma any m/s any more. i am very happy about that. momma goes to see the dr again on wed and we cant wait to get an update on how youre doing. youre growing very very well, and look perfect! well momma will write again soon, until then, we love you lil one.
well momma has been to the dr on wed, and i got to see you again on the u/s machine. you are doing very well. you are doubling in size every single week, and i was able to see your umbilical cord, and placenta.
your h/b was beautiful and i also was able to see your very small limbs.
i had a dream about you lately lil one.it was a dream of you laying in mommas womb, i watched your heart beating and saw your arms and legs flicker. the dream seemed so very real and made momma feel so happy.
Hi sweetie, you are getting bigger now, and Momma and Daddy will be going to see the dr again on wed to see you! We cant wait!! Mommas belly is getting bigger and Im starting to look like you are actually in there. It is so hard to believe that you are 11 weeks already, I hope that things continue to move this fast for us lil one. On wed we are Scheduling mommas cerclage and then momma has to start bedresting. I plan to start making you a blanket then too. Well I will write again soon! We love you!!!!
Hello little one, it has been a busy week for us hasnt it? We went to the drs on wed and Momma and Daddy were able to hear your little heartbeat and it was 160bpm, that was very exciting for us! We are scheduling mommas cerclage on feb 9th. Make sure that you hold on very very tight that day little one, I know that it will be very scary, but we can do this together. This will all be over sooner than you know, and Aug will be here, then I can hold you and cuddle you. Stay strong my sweet, I love you!
Momma had a bit of a scare yesterday, I was having some pain and so we went to the dr to be sure that everything was going ok with you. Turns out that you are doing very well, and I am very happy to see you again. You are a very very active baby. We could only hear your heartbeating for a very brief moment. Every time the u/s tech found your h/b, you moved. You started out kicking your feet and swinging your arms. Then you started bouncing up and down like crazy. You must have a lot of energy, to be moving like that. (now momma knows why her backs been hurting too) You are using it as a trampoline Enjoy it sweetie, I know I enjoyed watching you.
