My pregnancy hormones are definitely in a good place now. I'm no longer aggressive towards strangers (except for a little road rage at times), my husband is my favorite person in the world again (the mangos helped), and I feel just generally happy about everything.

The excitement over this pregnancy is growing day by day. I'm still scared, don't get me wrong. But I'm no longer checking the toilet paper every time I go, I don't listen for the heartbeat quite so many times a day, and I no longer cry unexpectedly because I'm just sure something must be wrong.

I can't believe the love I feel for this baby. What an incredible blessing it has been to be pregnant and watch the little one grow through ultrasounds. Best part of infertility is the increased number of ultrasounds you get! I was able to see Gil as a little gestational sac, then a tiny embryo with that amazing heartbeat, growing into a gummy bear, moving those little stubby arms/legs, etc.

And I can't wait for our ultrasound on Wednesday. It's my anatomy scan with the specialist and I'm so excited! I'll definitely post pictures when we get home. They have a great ultrasound and give me a video of it which I love. I still watch mine from my 12 week u/s with them.

Hey, do you girls know where I find the poll to put on my blog for whether my readers think the baby is a boy or girl? I can't find it but I definitely want to add one.


  1. Oh, how exciting! This is the one where they measure everything, so you'll get to gaze lovingly at Gil for a long time, right?

    You said you weren't going to find out, right? More power to ya, girl!

  2. So glad you are HAPPY! Ahhh I can't wait to feel like that someday, blissful with a baby in my belly :) I think what you do to add the poll is, go to "customize" on your page, then click on "Gadgets" and then scroll down and click on "Polls." I think that's how it works anyways. :)

  3. Little by little the fear is subsiding and contentment has set sound so healthy and I have to admit I'm jealous. I'm getting better, but am still inspecting toilet paper! I'll get there I'm sure. Enjoy the ever growing bliss!

  4. Oh, I can't wait to feel that way! I cry over totally random things at completely unexpected moments. Not about the baby, more about things like the tulips coming up, or a sappy commercial on t.v. And not just an elegant tear or two - all out sobbing. Apparently hormones are powerful little buggers. Hope Wednesday comes soon!
