      Time for another update! At 9 weeks 6 days I had my last appointment with my RE before being released. Oh how I wish he did prenatal appointments and deliverys but of course he can’t. Wouldn’t have the time. I just love him so much. I hope he is still practicing when/if I do this again.
        Our ultrasound was amazing. The baby was facing towards us and asleep. I was really hoping to see it move. (Even drank a few sips of coffee before I went in.) Then suddenly it woke up and moved it’s little head! Our little baby! Kicking it feet, waving its arms and everything. I got a video of it for DH because he couldn’t come to that appointment. The RE was laughing watching the baby squirm around. It measured 2 days ahead. Heartbeat at 171.
        So yesterday I had an appointment with an OB. Nope. Nope. A hundred times NO. I didn’t like the office at all. It was loud with pop music playing. Not soothing at all. I thought I should quit being so judgemental until I met the Dr. Well, turns out you have to see every OB at some point. (There’s 5 of them.) Whoever is on call does the delivery. They are high pressure and talk about policy a lot it seems. The Dr was nice but I can’t even pick who I want to see! Weird. No thanks. Moving on. I have an appointment with another OB next week. I hope I love her and can trust her. I really want an OB I can trust.
        The UTI will NOT go away!! Its driving me crazy! The weird part is today is my birthday and last year on my birthday I had a UTI too… But last year on my birthday I wasn’t pregnant. Hearing the baby’s heartbeat this morning was the best birthday present ever!! I plan on spending the day drinking as much water as possible and hoping and praying this UTI will finally go away. Also the yeast infection I found out I have yesterday. Yucky! Yucky!
       Easter is fast approaching. The day of my risen Saviour. Carrying this little baby that I love so much makes me think of the sacrifice God made sending His only Son to die for a wicked world. He knew Jesus would live again but watching His agony on the cross, God had to turn away. I can’t even imagine the pain in the heart of my heavenly Father as He saw His Son WILLINGLY take up that cross. Jesus said “no one can take My life unless I lay it down.” It was a choice He chose to make because He loved us so much. He paid the price of death once for all so that all who believe in Him will have the gift of eternal life. When we die as Christians, we know where we will go. We know the debt we owed for OUR sins has been paid by the sin-less Son of God. We will spend eternity thanking and praising God for the gift He gave. We might as well start now. Thank you Lord God Almighty. I love You because You first loved me.

      Wow! The last few days have been yucky. It all started with some spotting. That was scary enough! Then I freaked out because I was almost sure the Dr had told me I was 0- blood type. So I would need rhogam right? Well, yes I would except that I remembered wrong… I’m actually 0+. The Dr’s office called me yesterday on the weekend to let me know I did not need the shot. There are all kinds of speculations as to the origination of the spotting…. I no sooner got done having that drama than I came down with a UTI and had to go to the Urgent Care because my back hurt and I was passing blood. As always. Really, what’s new? I’ve done this whole UTI/kidney infection thing literally more times than I can remember. I’m forever passing blood. (I know you all wanted to hear about that!) 😉 So I’m on an antibiotic (keflex) and hopefully I’ll be rid of this infection soon.
     My morning sickness has kicked up a notch and its been hard to drink, eat, move… I promise I’m not complaining. I longed to be pregnant for years and I will gladly take all the nausea it happens to give me. The symptoms are actually not too bad in my case since I’m not working and its ok if I wake up and lay on the couch till my nausea lets up enough to eat breakfast. (Usually by 1pm).
        Ive been thinking I should add my 2 cents on PIO since I’ve been on it for almost 8 weeks. I love it. Yes, I know that sounds odd but I did crinone with my first IVF and can you say discusting? I also took prometium many years ago and it made me very dizzy. If you have to take progesterone, PIO is the way to go. Your butt will hurt on PIO a little but who needs a butt anyways? I’m no doc but these are my butt-saving tips.
·Do yourself a favor and DON’T ice before. I never have iced because my goal is to melt the PIO into the muscle not leave a frozen lump in there. The shot is suprising not that bad for such a daunting needle. I loved the 25gauge 1 1/2″ needles I was using but I haven’t been able to get them except for the first 2 weeks. I now use 23gauge and they’re pretty good.
·I use a microwave gel pack afterwards sometimes to warm the oil in my Southern Cheeks. I don’t always but it does help.
·Massaging afterwards is good. Wait a few minutes though or it will make it bleed worse.
·If you can have someone else do it, that’s nice.
·Insert needle very fast. You almost don’t feel it. That or my butt is numb.
·Inject s l o w l y. Ever so slowly.
This is what works for me. Your tushy may be different. 😉
      As for Lovenox? You tell me. I have the worst time with that shot. I guess you grit your teeth and try to remember to breath. And never show anyone your tummy. You will hear gasps.
      I still love my doppler. At first I could usually find the baby in 30 seconds. Now it swims away and its hard to find. I think it doesn’t like the doppler. Sorry baby! Mommy loves to hear you!
       God, thank you for my baby and please make my body a safe place for this baby now and through the months ahead. Please help me carry this baby to full term and healthy! In Jesus name, amen.
