8 Weeks

Weekly Update:

How far along: 8 weeks

How big is baby: Size of a strawberry

IVF meds:  1.5mL of Progesterone and .25mL of Delestrogen Mon/Fri Low dose aspirin and prenatals

Symptoms: The last couple days my nausea has gotten worse, it’s not terrible, but definitely more noticeable. I’m glad it waited until after my family had our Thanksgiving dinner last weekend. I’m stressing about this upcoming weekend and next week as my husband with be gone hunting and Olivia’s daycare provider is off next week. This means I’m single parenting it and stay at home moming it…which when you’re exhausted and nauseous is about as tough as it can get.

Sleep: I would sleep most of the day if I could. I’m wiped out pretty much constantly

Food cravings? carrots, popcorn, apples

Anything making you queasy or sick? letting my stomach get empty, eating too much, not sleeping enough….the list is growing

Happy or moody? being tired and nauseous is making me a little moody

Best moment of the week? having Thanksgiving with my family on Saturday

Next appointment: I have an intake appt at my OB’s office tomorrow. It’s just a quick appt with the medical assistant to go over health history and answer any questions I have. Honestly, with this being my fourth pregnancy I feel like we could do this over the phone, but that’s their protocol.
