I am pleased to announce that after two long years of trying, I get to now share the happy news that…. I’M PREGNANT!!!!!!!!! Over the life of this blog I have made subtle hints to the fact that we were actively trying for a child. Many of the tests and medications I have been put on through this time have been in relation to solving the fertility issues that go along with PCOS and Hashimotos. I am happy to say that I am now 15 weeks pregnant and safely into my 2nd trimester! The baby is due June 27th.
To say I was happy to reach this point is a bit of an understatement. Due to my hormonal issues and the fertility drugs (which made my weight loss success take a bit of a beating) I have been suffering the first trimester symptoms for about 2 years straight. (Yeah I know I have the best husband in the world and he has the patience of a saint!)
The nausea was probably the worst of it due to the mixing with my Hiatal Hernia. Over the summer I started suspecting that most of my nausea issues were now seeding from my fertility meds and hormonal issues and less from the Hiatal Hernia. I can now say that 97% of my nausea issues have been hormonal related. I am a new woman in my second trimester. Now that the morning sickness has passed (I’ll save my rant on the sick and twisted business of calling it morning Sickness for another post!) I feel better than I have in a very long time. At least, until I get exhausted and need a quick nap.
Exciting developments in the pregnancy:
I am finding that maternity clothes fit my body in amazing ways! I am finding that clothes fit better then they have in a long time!
Right before Christmas I started to be able to feel the baby’s pulse on occasion. The further I get the stronger I can feel it! I’m told that the baby isn’t supposed to be able to hear anything for another 2 weeks but I am starting to suspect I have a mini musician on my hands. I noticed last night and this morning that when I played music the baby’s pulse would get stronger.
So needless to say that life is very exciting for me right now! Has there been any exciting news in your life? Do share!
