I'm a whopping 4w5d pregnant so it's not like there is anything big to report there. I've had some nausea, but still feeling pretty good. I'm definitely starting to feel the exhaustion/insomnia though. During the day all I can think about is sleep, but as soon as bed time rolls around I'm WIRED. It's the strangest thing.
Over the last few weeks I was so focused on IVF that I forgot to update about the other things going on in my life. So now I will bore all of you with that stuff. :)
Last week one of my Besties from highschool and her two little boys came up for the weekend to celebrate my 30th birthday and London's 2nd Birthday. We had a BLAST eating way too much candy, Japanese food, and delicious cupcakes (and blueberry fritters) they brought from my favorite bakery at home. We had a great time!
London blowing out his candle.
Then he didn't want to get his icing on his hands so this is how he ate his cupcake.
The Trio in a double stroller at the Zoo.
We like to pretend that the trip was this organized...
But it actually looked more like this,
with kids screaming and climbing out of the stroller.
This is a very accurate picture of the day,
including me talking instead of smiling for the picture.
It was my birthday and 2 days before London's so we treated ourselves to a
Feeding the baby giraffe.
It looks like the giraffe is eating London's hand off but he was actually VERY gentle.
The boys feeding the goats.
Three sleepy monkeys.
Oh and while I am uploading pictures, I figured I would post my very first belly picture of this pregnancy.
No, it's not one of those "look how cute and flat my stomach is" pictures that people take to have something as a comparison in 6 months. This one is going in the baby book. This picture is to prove to my future child/children what I went through to have them. This is what my belly looks like right now.
Black and blue from my daily Lovanox shots.
The shots are going really well actually. They don't burn nearly as bad anymore or maybe I've just gotten used to the pain at this point. I definitely can't complain since I don't have to take the progesterone in oil shots. I'm on Crinone instead. Sure they are messy, but painless!
I added a poll to my left sidebar, so go take a guess at how many babies you think I have growing in my belly right now. Ultrasound is in 16 days!!! I can't wait!
I need to go eat some dinner and crawl into bed, the season premiere of Army Wives comes on tonight and
I AM PUMPED!!!
