Yeah, I know…I know. I already posted in August that we WEREN’T pregnant, and then there was the maybe we were, and then I went silent. Well, I went silent because the roller coaster got to be too much. It felt like my heart-rate was never going down, and I was constantly on edge from one ultrasound to another. But then today happened.
Today was my first appointment with my regular OBGYN, Alliance OBGYN. Today was amazing. We are officially 10 weeks pregnant. The baby was moving it’s little nubby arms and legs around like crazy, and its heartbeat was really strong. As of today, we have less than a 5% rate of miscarriage, which makes me feel a lot better. Not 100% out of the woods, but I don’t think you ever are until the baby is born.
I honestly can say that I had no idea that we would be here today. There were so many things working against this little baby, and it just kept hanging on (which is why we will now be referencing baby Walker as “The Claw”). From one appointment to the next, the baby grew and the heartbeat got stronger. We are so thankful for all of the support we have gotten and I am thrilled to finally be sharing the results of the last few months.
I know some people may feel like I am sharing too early, but at this point, the baby will do what the baby will do…and we are excited to be celebrating all we have accomplished at this point. We would have never gotten here without the tremendous support from our friends, family and the amazing staff at Georgia Reproductive Specialists. If you are in Atlanta and are in need of fertility assistance, I can assure you, there is NO better practice out there. You will always be treated with respect and they care more about their patients than they do about having a Saturday off.
So I guess my posts from here on will be documenting our pregnancy. Glad to be off the roller coaster, and getting on a less crazy ride….especially since my “morning sickness” is ALL day sickness! The Claw is due April 2015!!!
