13 weeks

Well, we had our repeat NT ultrasound today. It went much better than last week. Baby was still being stubborn and it took the tech a long time to get him/her in the right position but eventually she got what she needed. The tech today was fantastic. She talked us through the entire ultrasound letting us know what she was doing/looking for and reassuring us that everything looked great. A stark contrast to last week’s tech, who barely spoke to us, which unnecessarily freaked us out as we, of course, (being long-term infertiles) assumed that meant something was terribly wrong.

Anywhooo…today was a GOOD day. We finally…finally let ourselves breathe and actually get a little excited about all of this. I can’t believe at the next ultrasound we’ll be able to find out if there’s a little man or baby girl in there (not that we care in the least) – Crazy to be here. I had almost lost hope that it would ever happen for us.

And today is also my LAST day of hormone supplementation – woohoo! One more blood draw Tuesday and that should be it. I’ve definitely been feeling a bit better since weaning so I’m hoping that I’ve turned a corner and that a lot of the extreme symptoms were caused by the excess hormones I was taking.

So that’s about it for now. I’m feeling incredibly blessed as we begin our Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. So much to be thankful for this year. Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian friends and to all the rest of you, thank you for taking the time to follow me on this journey. Your support has been invaluable. I know I’ve said this before, but I wish with all of my heart that somehow, some way all of you get to the other side of this tough road.

  1. It’s so nice not having to go to the blood draws every week and taking the medicine, you really do start to feel like a “normal” pregnant lady when that stuff stops. I can’t wait to find out what you are having!!!

  2. Glad you have the reassurance. It is time to start enjoying what you’ve worked so long and hard for! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Ohh – So happy that you are almost weaned off of the hormones – I could tell a difference – that progesterone made me so groggy and tired. Yay for much better u/s experience! Looking forward to a bump update šŸ™‚

  4. Congratulations!! It’s amazing how an u/s tech can make all the difference šŸ™‚ what a wonderful reason to celebrate. Happy CanadianThanksgiving. Enjoy every moment.

  5. Awesome Jen!! They can generally tell right away when there’s an issue so it’s a great sign that things went well. You are about to feel so much better – the second trimester is the fun part!

  6. Yay! 13 weeks is great! I know it’s hard to relax and enjoy this whole process, but it’ll definitely get easier. I can’t wait to hear if it’s a little man or a little lady!
