So I wanted to start this pregnancy blog to track my journey…we first started to TTC over a year ago…I have PCOS so we new it was not going to be an easy road…we started with fertility treatments in August 2011 and it took us until September 2012 to finally conceive our first child…if you want to read more about our journey check out my Infertility/IVF journey in my blog: http://infertilitydoessuck.wordpress.com/… I could not believe I was pregnant but when you see these pics it makes it real:
Anyone who has gone thru infertility treatments know that just because you get a positive on a HPT it doesnt mean your out of the woods…we had to have 2 beta’s to make sure they were doubling which they did plus 3 ultrasounds to confirm that there was indeed a viable pregnancy…Here are our sonogram pictures…
Sonogram #1 – 5 weeks 5 days (gestational sac & yolk)
Sonogram #2 – 6 weeks 6 days & HB 121
Between sonogram #2 and #3 I had some bleeding with clotting and I was really scared that there was something wrong…we went to the Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE) and I had a subchronic hematoma (SCH) which caused the issue which was a relief…so by sonogram #3 the SCH had basically resolved which is good…
Sonogram #3 – 8 weeks & HB 155
You generally “graduate” from the RE by the time you have your 3rd ultrasound…we had heard the heart beat 3x already and you are discharged to your OB for the remainder of your pregnancy…you finally feel like you are normal pregnant woman…I still worry from time to time but I have to remember that there is nothing I can do at this point other than not worry myself too much…my first OB appt. is on 10/23!!!
