So today I am 8 weeks. I still have absolutely zero symptoms to report which I feel is very strange. If I had not seen my baby and heard his little heart beat a week ago, I would not believe he was there. Even after that, part of me is still having a hard time accepting that all of this is happening.
I had mentioned in my last post that my RE said everything looked perfect at my first ultrasound (I had it at exactly 7 weeks). I left his office on cloud 9. Unfortunately, I later decided to do some research online and pretty much convinced myself that I was in trouble. The heart rate was 109. Some sources say that is fine but others say that is really low. That coupled with my complete lack of symptoms has kept me on edge.
For my own sanity, I need to learn how to get off Dr. Google. It is driving me crazy. I am going to try to trust my doctors. They know what they are doing. I am also focused on enjoying watching my baby grow. Isn’t he adorable!
Speaking of doctors, my RE actually already released me. I expected to stay with them longer but he said since everything looks good I am ready for a regular OB/GYN. After some research, I found one I think I am going to like. He specializes in IVF patients so if nothing else, he will know what we have been through. He works at a hospital that has the most advanced resources available in my area if something goes wrong during my delivery. There is a hospital that is a bit closer but we feel better with this one. Lastly,he has a son named Jacob which is the name we picked out for our little boy. I know that does not matter but I thought it was kind of cute 🙂
We have our first appointment on Tuesday. I am nervous but excited to meet him.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! Happy Easter 🙂 For your viewing enjoyment, I attached a picture of a cute bunny ❤ – Jennie
