Totally Normal

My ultra sound yesterday was totally normal! Something every infertile loves to hear! Baby measured 10w4d with a heart rate of 164. My cervix measured in at 4.1. I talked to the doctor about my morning (all day) sickness - She is not worried since I am able to keep liquids down and take my prenatal daily. I am really hoping it starts to ease up a bit. I am getting a little annoyed living on peanut butter and saltines – I really want a bacon cheese burger!


I meet with the peri in two weeks for my NT scan and to have a consultation to come up with a game plan. The OB thinks they will want me in for weekly cervix checks. This is starting to seem real to me! I know the next couple months will be stressful because of my past history but I will try to focus on this pregnancy and not to let my mind wander too far. Easier said than done…


I hope everyone enjoyed watching the Super Bowl. We stayed home – which is a good thing considering I puked about 5 times during it. Sunday was rough.

  2. Dislike the puking! Here's to positive thoughts of placenta taking over and less puking!

    When are they starting the cervical checks weekly? They aren't considering a cerclage at this time? Only if there is change?

    I haven't gotten the "real" feeling yet. I might be hiding from it.

  3. That's awesome your check up was totally normal! Morning sickness is the worst but hang in there, hopefully it subsides here soon. I'm glad they are considering doing weekly checks and I'm sure it will be reassuring for you too. Have a great week!

  10. Congrats on the normal check-up!!!!
    Ok, try peanut butter and waffles, that is much more filling and still pretty bland.
    I hope it gets better! All day sickness is the worst, just keep a trash bag in your purse, the car, an extra in your office etc. I used all of mine, but I felt "safer" knowing they were there.
