10 hours of sleep

I went to bed at 9 pm last night, resulting in 10 glorious hours of sleep. I’m just trying to listen to my body and do what it wants me to do. Honestly I could have slept longer. My nausea has calmed down quite a bit, but I find myself still very tired. Cramping on and off, and sometimes when I twist I get sharp pulling pains. I’m just hoping that everything is progressing as it should! Trying not to let pregnancy psychosis take over. It’s hard, with all the terrifying things you read.

This weekend I’m going to my friend Adrianne’s bachelorette party. I hope I’m not too much of a party pooper, I might need naps and I might need to go to bed earlier then everyone. We shall see!

Yesterday I talked to my insurance company about the balance I have at the fertility center. Apparently I have surgical copays no one told me about. Cool. It’s better than paying thousands! She also told me that while my current IVF authorization ends in October, if it’s renewed by the doctor and 4 cycles doesn’t do it, I have an additional two cycles. What? No one told me this, either. So instead of 4 cycles I have 6 cycles approved lifetime. That’s awesome! I hope that this current pregnancy goes to term, and I can use the other cycles in the future should I need them.

So yea, that’s it. Trying to stay calm and trust that this pregnancy will go to full term and result in the baby we’ve been trying for for years.

Come on poppy seed! ❤

1st trimester-
4 weeks, 5 days pregnant
Third beta this Wednesday!

    So crazy how fast things form. It’s only poppy seed sized and it’s already forming its heart! So exciting! Do the girls at the bachelorette party know about IVF and everything? Obviously it’s still really early to tell you’re pregnant… unless they already know? To get around drinking and being cranky, I’ve blamed the IVF meds (and would’ve continued to do so, had I had a positive beta). For those that aren’t in the know, I got around not drinking by just referring to a ‘medication’ I was on. It doesn’t exactly invite questions, so everybody was like ‘Ok’ and that was the end of it.

      Right? I can’t believe it. I read these things to my husband and he’s like oh god that’s gross. I’m like NO IT’S AMAZING! (he is easily squeamish) I might have peeked ahead to weeks 5 and 6 🙂 Yesterday the part that becomes the spinal column was forming- I can’t remember the name of it.

      A couple of the girls at the bachelorette party know, as they are my closest friends, but the rest don’t. I feel like too many people know already, I’m barely 5 weeks! Thank you for the comment, I might go that route. All the girls I do know personally know I’m doing IVF but don’t know I’m pregnant yet. We shall see!

        Yeah, so definitely, if you don’t want to say you’re PG yet, you can just blame meds. They’ll know what the meds are for and the others won’t care. Antibiotics are a good excuse if anyone gets nosy, alcohol reduces their effectiveness. Have fun!
