We went in for a check up with our OB today and had an ultrasound to make sure everything is healthy in the womb since discontinuing the progesterone and delestrogen injections. Mom and Dad to be were there and we got to see the baby moving around like crazy! It looked like it was dancing, moving its arms around and rolling from side to back. It is absolutely amazing to see how developed a fetus is at 11 weeks and it’s only the size of a fig!
Last week my kids took turns getting sick and now I am fighting a nasty cold. We’ve had lots of wind and pollen in the air so it feels like I have allergies mixed into it all. My appetite is slowly coming back and I’m hoping as we venture into the second trimester I’ll start to feel fabulous.
We are now like a normal, healthy pregnancy and don’t have another doctor’s appointment for four weeks. Like our doctor said today in regards to parenting, “The days seem long but the years fly by”, the days are definitely dragging but the weeks are starting to fly by for this surrogacy journey.
