Ohhh Haaapppyyyy Daaayyyysssss

Good news....for me at least. I get to stop all the medications this weekend! (singing) Oh happy dayyyyysssss!!

Set up the first OB doctor appointment for April 5th. Neat little story about that. Like I said before I had to take multi steps just to make the first OB appointment. Yesterday I turned in all the paperwork and sat down with an intake girl to make that appointment. So I have 3 choices of places I can go for care. At first I try to set up the appointment at the last place I was seen for my surrogacy and I tried to get my same doctor as last time who I loved. But he was not available for many weeks. So I asked about the other locations and she said one of them is staffed with Midwives. Now if you really know me you know that is right up my alley. So I was excited to be seen and taken care of by midwifes. So the women pulls up the list of available midwives and up comes this name I recognize! This midwife/nurse practitioner used to be my Gynocologist and I absolutely loved her and was so sad when I heard she had left the main doctors office. So of course I made the appointment with her. So I envision the first appointment with her remembering me and me so excited to see her...... I'm delusional, because she probably won't have a clue as to who I am, but I can pretend right ;)

I'm here...

Sorry for the break in writing. I have not felt the best lately. It is not for the lack of what to say more that I come home from work, shovel some food in and then pass out. I have the first trimester tiredness and nausea going on. Not complaining, just telling you like it is. Upside is (always an upside) only a few weeks left of the first trimester, and the really good news is, the food that goes in, stays in ;)

I went in last week to start the process for my own OB appointments (yes I am done with the IVF doctor). The funny requirement that my OB doctor has is you need to take a urine test to check for pregnancy before they will even talk to you about OB appointments. So of course I had to go in and do a urine test. So when they handed me the paper that said positive, I wanted to shout out "WHAT, I'm pregnant, I can't believe it". But I held back.....

Until next time, with ginger ale in hand.....

I am doomed...

I am doomed, went to the store today and bought not ONE but TWO cakes!

Oh and I must mention my first craving. Let me start by saying I eat a pretty healthy diet. No red meat, a lot of vegetables and not much junk food and very rarely soda.  So what sounded fabulous to me the other day.....a coca cola! and it was soooooo good! I am doomed I know it!

Last appointment with the IVF doctor and last ultrasound tomorrow with him as well (Notice how I did not mention last of the medication,still have a few weeks of that to go)! I have been trying to put up the video from the first ultrasound but I am having no luck with that. I will post a picture at least.

I'm off to stare at the cakes for a while....
