Updates from week 8...

So, this week we got to see the little eagles again...but a little early.  My cramping continued and worsened so my RE moved up my appointment to Wednesday afternoon.  I was so worried that we wouldn't see heartbeats again.  BUT, everything looked great and both babies were measuring ahead.  Eagle A was at 8 weeks and 3 days and Eagle B was at 8 weeks and 1 day and I was at 8 weeks exactly so that was perfect.  Everything looked great and she couldn't find a reason for my cramping, but just suggested that I take it easy.  It was so nice to see our little eagles growing bigger with those 2 beautiful flickering heartbeats!!

Yesterday, I ventured out and bought my 1st 2 pairs of maternity pants...ever!  I never needed maternity pants with my last pregnancy because I didn't gain any weight and my waist stayed the same size.  This time around, I have a little bump and I'm sure most of it is weight gain from IVF and my horrible eating habits lately, but I don't really care.  I love my little belly and I love my new pants.  I got a pair of black active wear pants and a pair of skinny jeans.  They are super comfy and will help me get through the next couple of months!

Otherwise, my nausea has continued and really takes a lot out of me, but I love it and I'm so grateful to feel this sick all the time.  It's very reassuring.  Otherwise, I'm still really tired, my boobs are way more sore, and I have to pee all the time...and I'm loving it!!

Next ultrasound is at 9 weeks, next Wednesday and I can't wait!!  Have a nice weekend!!


  1. I'm so happy that the little ones are doing great and measuring ahead!
