If this is your first time here, welcome to my humble blog!
I've been blogging for over two years, and have been TTC for as long with the help of medical science. We were lucky enough to get pregnant with our Hail Mary donor sperm IUI, after 3 fresh IVFs, and 1 FET, using Mr. Jem's.
I'm 17 weeks pregnant today and am LOVING the second trimester. It's amazing and wonderful in so many ways. Gone is the nausea and fatigue. Gone is a lot of the paranoia and fear that this pregnancy will fail. Okay, gone for today. It helps that I finally broke down and bought a prenatal doppler so I can hear our little baby girl's heart beat. Yes, we did CVS testing in the first trimester (as I'm of advanced maternal age) and wanted to know the baby's gender.
So, I'm just happy to be pregnant. My skin is amazing. My hair is growing like crazy and is curly and so healthy. Emotionally I'm great too, if not a little reactive. Overall I feel like a million bucks. My pregnancy is going very smoothly and for that I'm very, very grateful.
That's my update. I'll share a baby bump picture next time.
