I am so excited to have a confirmed pregnancy! I go back in tomorrow to make sure the hormones are progressing as they should and then I go in a week from tomorrow to get the first ultrasound….so amazing! The baby will not look like much on it, but since I went thru a fertility dr., there is a lot more monitoring than the usual preggie. He asked if I wanted it and I said yes! I called the insurance and the most we should have to pay out of pocket if everything goes completely haywire is $10,000. That is totally doable to me. The baby will be covered on my insurance for the first 31 days and then I will add it to my plan. I set up the first appointment at the Birthing Center at 9 weeks. So, the fertility Dr. will see me until week 8 and then the next week, I will meet with a midwife at the Birthing Center. All of it is so very exciting. The Dr. said I would be able to try to hear the heartbeat in two weeks, but we will for sure hear it at the first appointment at the Birthing Center.
On another note, I am cotton weary….aka very tired. Last night at 8:30 after a day of laying around and watching Mad Men and reading, I could barely keep my eyes open. I have also been craving juice, carrots and peas…not bad cravings if you ask me. I have been organizing the house a bit and I am in the midst of cooking Beef Wellington right now. I will add pictures when it is done. It is a ton of veggies, mixed with a pound of beef and then rolled into a puff pastry! YUM! So many exciting changes!
