How the Hell....

I am 10 weeks the hell did that happen? It seems to be flying by already, I feel like I just found out yesterday still.

I had another u/s yesterday, everything is still going just fine, baby is doing just fine, and this might actually mean I am safe, I have a 99% chance of having a baby next year....a real live baby.

So enter freak out don't know what to do with a baby...I have never had a baby. I mean ya, I deliver babies, but I deal with brand new babies, not like growing, screaming babies. Does all first time moms have this freak out? I really hope so...tell me I'm not alone :S

I have been terrible at keeping up to date on here, I started this place just as a keeper of information I can look back on to have. Well once I got past my miscarriage date I started a written journal. and honestly there's a whole lot of nothing going on...absolutely nothing. I have symptoms, but no different than they have been, and there will be no belly pics for a while...because, I am starting from a pre-flubbed state.

I am thrilled to report that I have had not one single drop of bleeding...that's the biggest thing I worried about, and there has been none *knock on wood*. With that I am relieved.

I had quite the experience in the fertility clinic yesterday. I really don't understand some people. I get that it was a Sunday, so there would probably be a few kids, I am not kidding you when I say that there were a good 10 kids or more in there. I see a few things wrong with this. we can assume that seeing kids in general (especially kids under say 2 years old) its hard on the heart for infertiles, so why people bring their kids is beyond me. It still hurts my heart, and I am 10 weeks pregnant. It is hard for me to look at these kids. Another reason, kids are so freaking germy, and half of these kids probably also go to daycare during the week, and with all the H1N1 going around, keep your kids at home, when you are around a population potentially at high risk for this virus. I will pay kudos to the clinic for getting rid of all of their toys during this outbreak of H1N1. But about half of the parents were very vocal about how pissed they were that there were no toys...bring your own, then your child can keep his/her germs to themselves. T and I moved to a different area of the waiting room to avoid the germs, and to be able to hear ourselves think.

Oh and on the topic of H1N1. I can;t get the vaccine, I have had both a vaccine reaction to the seasonal flu vaccine, and I'm immunocomprimised, so we have a problem. I am literally staying in my home all the time, other than to go to work. And T got vaccinated last week (after waiting in line 7 hours at a vaccine clinic) so we should be ok here, as long as we do what we can to prevent it.

last but not least....yesterdays pic.


  1. Congrats on 10 weeks! I'm so glad to hear that things are going so smoothly this time.

    I was never too excited about kids at my clinic either... I hear that some clinics have separate waiting areas for parents with kids, that seems like a nice compromise.

    Too bad you can't get the vaccine, it's sure helped my piece of mind. I had a little bit of a reaction to the seasonal flu vaccine but no problems at all with the H1N1. At least your hubby was able to get it.

  2. Wow, 10 weeks already! That's fantastic :).

    You should look into Vit. D - it does wonders for the immune system.

  3. We're on a roll! I'm excited about how close our due dates are!

    I have terrible flu shot reactions, too. My doctors said never try them again.

  4. Congrats, Shannon!! Wonderful to hear all is well. I am 10 weeks and 4 days today... having weekly ultrasounds at the fertility clinic to track growth and heartrate (due to my history). I have another one today, my NT in the next week or so and then - hooray - I get transferred to my OB (will miss the weekly ultrasounds though). I am waiting for the adjuvant-free vaccive to be received by my family doctor, hopefully soon. I am also waiting until the lines die down to get my 3.5 year old vaxed. As for kids in clinics... it has always shocked me. As a parent who 3 losses followed by secondary infertility, I would not dream of bringing my daughter to the clinic - especially now with H1N1 on the loose. I think it is so insensitive. Granted, at times it might be unavoidable but what kills me is when I see mom AND dad and kid(s)... what is up with that? Daddy, take your older child for a walk, please! All the best...take good care of yourself...stay healthy!
