Sorry for the lacking blog post yesterday… I just did not have much to say!
I think the new job is going to be a good fit. So far, it’s a little slow, but as I learn more I think I’ll begin to enjoy it more. And since I feel so strangely exhausted lately, I’d rather things be a little slow than absolutely overwhelming. The hardest part about working away from home (a whopping ten minutes away from home) is having to leave the dogs. I DO NOT know how women can make themselves leave their children each day to go to work. If I have a hard time parting with animals for a few hours here and there, I just can’t imagine what it must be like to have to say goodbye to your children before work each day.
We are 9.5 weeks pregnant today, and we have an ultrasound scheduled for later this morning. I am just as nervous about this ultrasound as I was our last. Does that feeling ever go away??
I mentioned this last week, but I will say it again… I am so tired! 24/7. It just won’t go away. “Tired” is not even a good word to describe it. I feel overwhelmingly sleepy. It is all I can do to keep my eyes open during the day. I’ve had a couple waves of nausea, but they have not been bad; noticeable, but not bad. And no nightmares this week! YAY!!!
I’ve walked about an hour every day of the week except Tuesday. I worked until just after 8:00 last night, and the last thing I felt like doing when I got home was walking on the treadmill. I’ll try to make up for it by walking extra some other day. If I could shake this sleepiness, I feel sure that I would walk A LOT more.
Today is my last appointment at GRS. It feels really bittersweet. The people at GRS have been so wonderful that part of me hates to leave, but the other part of me knows that this is a really good thing. The goals was never to stay there forever. Plus, they still have our frozen embryos, so we will be back eventually!
Here’s what’s going on with Baby:
- Baby is about the size of a small brussel sprout.
- Has fingers, toes, eyelids, and ears!
- External boy or girl parts are present, but won’t be distinguishable for a few more weeks.
What I am most looking forward to these days:
Of course I am anxious for our ultrasound later today. I’m also really looking forward to the day when I will be able to stop taking progesterone injections. My backside is ready for a little break from those suckers…
