SIX weeks!

So today we are six weeks... Our little one has a heart beat and even though s/he's still tiiiiiny s/he has facial features and little arm buds starting to show. Awwww, arm buds :p

My poor Jo has been ill :( a bad head ache yesterday and the nausea is here to stay. Mentos seems to be doing the trick though! :) we have mint growing wildly in our herb garden so maybe I can convince her to use it...

I am feeling so much excitement right now, just over a week to go until I get to stare at the screen with no idea what I'm looking at (AKA our first ultrasound) and christmas is getting closer and closer! I can't wait to tell the grand oldies.

5 weeks!

Wow that happened fast :D

Second lot of bloods confirm all is well with HCG at 5900 and progesterone at 62, they are some awesome levels. Progesterone is actually already within second trimester levels but it could be that she was on the pessaries for a while.

It's all starting to feel more real now... Poor Jo is definitely struggling with nausea now... All day nausea at that, poor petal. Oh! And I brought her some new bras yesterday, she already needs to go up a size! :o

So now only 2 weeks until our first ultrasound and only 4 weeks until Christmas which is when we will tell our immediate family - so excited!

Almost 5 weeks

More bloods today... We will get the results tomorrow and our levels will be spectacular :D

Poor Jo has started feeling ill over the last day or so but pushing through it like a trooper!

We are mainly focused on our first ultrasound which is the 9th I CAN'T WAIT to see what's in there!!!!!

Plush Owls

Is there anything cuter?!

I have decided it's a plush owl for baby's first teddy...

Yes, I do remember we are only four weeks up the duff - excitement is not really listening to reason and common sense right now

4 weeks

We have made it! My Jo is 4 weeks pregnant today :D

It feels like such a milestone, and then I remember there are still about 36 weeks to go an the little creature is only as big as a full stop!


That's tiny! Hard to believe in just a few short weeks it will look like a person! (well, sort of)

Fingers are still crossed, still hoping, praying, wishing it all goes according to plan.

Is the magic number :)

That's Jo's HCG level. Which is GREAT! Progesterone is great too! She will have another blood test next Monday to confirm all is as it should be and then our first scan the week of the 5th Dec.

I am feeling so excited but it's all really surreal also, I don't think I fully get it yet - or believe it yet.

I don't think I can sleep tonight :D

Bloodwork today.

Jo got her first bloods done today... I don't need the results to tell me she's pregnant after all the positive home tests, it's just the levels now... I'm so excited but I'm also really nervous. We need good levels, then we need em to double!! C'moooon li'l squirt grow!

Another positive HPT

Get ready blog followers, there will be more where this came from :P

Jo is armed and ready with a full bladder, and this month we will be getting darker and darker lines! We WILL!

This mornings test was lovely and dark and came up before she could even get her pants on (lol, well almost)

Take a gander :)

Nice eh?

Positive HPT

This morning :) Came up quickly and I think darker than our positive last month... We are 10 days post IUI, 11 post HCG trigger shot (if you have been following, you will recall that in testing early on IUI #1 we found that it leaves her system after about 8 days...)

After last months shitful events I am just trying to keep myself contained until we get the bloods on Monday... We will also keep testing at home to make sure it gets darker rather than lighter... Fingers crossed!!!

It HAS to happen. It HAS to be our month...
