12 weeks...

10 weeks ago today I had my retrieval that led to this pregnancy.

Today I am officially (developmentally) in the second trimester.

I spent this morning having a 1 hour GTTS. I had the tropical punch which was not bad, like too sweet Koolaid.

I took my last Metformin last night. I get to stop the estrogen patches also.

I will take PIO a couple weeks more but do not have to.

I am allowed to stop the Heparin but am still afraid to (will post more about this soon).

I have actually bought maternity clothes (ONLY because I literally had only one skirt that fit, nothing else AT ALL).

My next appointment is the 14th.

I have very strange dreams while pregnant.

I have actually told some"chosen family" friends and my neighbors. ACK!

I put a ticker on my iGoogle page and even that seems too much.

I am so very grateful to be here.

15 om's.:

Congrats for 12 weeks! yay!

Hey, can you explain to me what you mean by "developmentally in the 2nd trimester"?

bleu said...

Sure, if you plug in your info here
http://ivf.ca/calcu.htm

You will see a chart with lots of info and it gives the trimester breakdowns
You can go by developmental age, gestational age or conceptional age of the fetus.
Development wise the baby is one third done at 12 weeks.
