9 Weeks and first midwife appointment.

Hi all, sorry for being so absent lately, hopefully there is still someone hanging around and reading. There just hasn't really been all that much going on at the moment and to be honest I have been so damn tired lately that when I think about going to write a post I just decide to lie down instead!

So today we have hit the 9 week mark! The end of the first trimester is nearing. Perhaps when I head into the second trimester I will start to develop a bit of a belly I can take a picture of to show you, but at the moment there isn't really anything to speak of, apart from the fat that was already there.

This afternoon me and gardener guy went to our first midwife appointment. I was looking forward to having our first health related appointment in god knows how long that wasn't scary and worrying, I was a nice happy appointment for once. My midwife is just lovely and I think we are going to get along really well, we had a chat about previous health issues etc and just a general chat really. I was given my forms for my 12 week scan and another blood test, so I will sort out booking in the scan. So we have 3 weeks till we get to see and hear our baby again, so I just need to trust that everything in there is all good. I was also given a pack with some booklets and some coupons for baby stuff and a few samples which was really good. Our next appointment is on the 23rd August and I will then be 14 weeks. 

I feel like the weeks are going a bit quicker now, the first few weeks after getting our positive result went so so slow but now I feel like it seems to be ticking along alot quicker. Since my last update I have been feeling a bit more dodgy in the tummy, every day I gag on and off for no particular reason and it just come on all of a sudden, but really its not that bad. The tiredness is still the worst, It just doesn't really matter how much I sleep I am still tired. The bleeding has stopped completely and I have had terrible constipation but that is all at the moment.

That's all from me today, both me and gardener guy are just ticking along happily and looking forward to the weeks going past quick so we can soon meet our baby. Hope everyone else is well and treatments and pregnancy's are going well and non infertility readers are all well too.

  8. I have been away from blogging because of the first trimester fatigue. It really is exhausting. You have just a few more weeks. and YOu will be like me..energetic and awake!!! I was reading an above post..my comments have decreased too. I am really not sure if it is the pregnancy or that people are just enjoying the summer and have decreased blogging altogether?
