I sort of feel like I am not sure what to post about anymore...I don't want to make people that follow me that have not yet gotten pregnant feel bad but the only thing to talk about with what is going on with me is about pregnancy...Ill try to keep it simple as to not offend anyone...I am and will always be infertile. I did not get pregnant the easy way at all. In the end the IVF was not that bad but it would have been a lot easier if it had just happened....but I hope I can still lend advice and encouragement to those who are going through IUI and IVF in hopes to ease some concerns etc.
I have the NT scan on Friday....I'm kind of freaking out about it...I mean I am sure everyone who does it is nervous ....just because you end up getting pregnant does not mean that the worrying and anxiety stops...there are still so many things that can happen. I am sure everything will be fine but its still an uneasy feeling that you have. After all this time and all the things we had to go through to get here lets hope God can bless us one more time with a healthy baby!
We are going to go to the Cape or Maine after the appointment for a few days which will be nice - hopefully they will give us some sort of idea at the u/s as to what we are looking at?
The nurse practitioner told us that we could not travel out of the country after 20 weeks...we had not really planned on that information. We were going to go away one last time in November but that means we have to go before Sept 28Th which is my 20 week appointment???? She said it was because before 20 weeks if something were to happen there is really not much they can do but after 20 weeks there is a lot they can do and we need to be somewhere medical help is the same as the U.S which leaves no where we wanted to go! hahah So...what I think I am going to do is next appointment with the doctor herself I am going to ask her if the first week in October would be OK. There is a great 9-10 days cruise out of Boston or NJ that goes to the Caribbean and its cheap and I can avoid getting on an airplane which is TOTALLY key! I actually felt kind of selfish and stupid because she said after all it took you to get here you wouldn't want to jeopardize it...of course I wouldn't but I guess we were thinking were not high risk so why would we think something would happen?
Anyway - anyone else been told this? I have been on plenty of vacations and seen plenty of preggo's that are farther along than 20 weeks....and I am not a high risk pregnancy so what gives???
