4 weeks...36 to go
So we transferred August 10 with a 5 day embryo and so I was officially 4 weeks along on August 19! I have been having nausea and morning sickness, more like all day sickness since the 11th. At first I thought I was crazy for thinking I could be feeling sick this soon in the game but it is possible people. It has been interesting because I definitely don't remember getting nausea or sick til I was almost 6-8 weeks along with my baby.
I have been pretty tired! I mean to the point I'm in bed by the time the little one goes to bed at 8:30pm. I definitely remember that happening much later.
I have had some aversions to fruit, or maybe it is just the after taste of the fruit. Whatever it is it didn't settle well and made me pretty miserable!
I am still taking progesterone and estrogen shots and my behind is pretty sore. I have knots and bruises so badly and I cry and cringe every time I have to stick myself.
I have been asked by a very few people how I have been feeling emotionally about all of this since it isn't my baby. I have to say that because I have always known it is going to be their biological baby and that it has none of my biology it has been so different. It is more of a feeling of I am excited for my best friend to have a baby. When I got pregnant with my baby girl I was excited for me and for the planning and everything that went with it. This time I know it is for someone else and I am so excited for them. It was like okay I have a positive pee stick and was excited for them to find out the news. I will be excited for each part of the pregnancy but in a different way. It will be excitement for my best friend kind of way!
