I made it to 11 weeks. Holy cow! Luckily, the weeks have been going by a little faster due to the holidays coming up and all of the things I have to get ready for parties and traveling. It’s going to be a fun few weeks, except for the actual traveling, which is just my least favorite thing EVER! 🙂
So, let’s talk about how I’m feeling right now. So far the nausea is pretty much gone. If I don’t eat every couple hours I feel even more dizzy than normal. Apparently dizziness and lightheadedness get a lot worse around week 10? Maybe it’s just me, but it’s been keeping me even more grounded to the couch than I was. I’ve been getting up and moving around to decorate, do laundry, clean and make myself some food, but that’s about it. Last night while decorating the tree, I had to sit down because I was so lightheaded, I could hear my heart beating in my head. The hubby made me some popcorn to get some more food on my stomach since we’d already had dinner. Squirrel sure is hungry! Other than that, I’d say being tired is still my number one symptom. I hear, from blog world, that this should lessen in the next few weeks. It’ll be nice to have some energy to deal with all the traveling. Oh, and also, I’ve noticed a tiny, itty bitty bit of liquid coming out of my breasts. WHOA!! 😀
So, last night my husband and I decided to have a little fun. *wink* I will say that our sex life has been significantly decreased since starting IVF. We didn’t have sex until I was 8 weeks, and since then we’ve probably only had sex 4-5 times? My body just doesn’t bend the same way and it feels a little dry “down there” now. It’s still fun, just a little weird to get used to all the body changes. Well, last night was the first time I’ve had a … ya know. *wink again* It was a great time had by all, but then afterwards I started freaking out about whether that could hurt the baby. I’ve already read that it can’t, but I was sure to lay there and make sure I didn’t have any cramping and that the contractions had quit. They didn’t even last 30 seconds after the big event from what I could tell. I guess I’m not in that part of pregnancy where my body is uber hyped up. *wink!* No bleeding either… trust me, I’ve checked! I know it sounds crazy, but i’ll probably keep from having those too often, due to the crazy nature of my brain. 🙂
Well, I figured I’d put up a belly picture for the first time ever. Not sure why mine looks so big already, but the progesterone started me off bigger and then I’m a natural bloater, but this was taken first thing this morning before I had eaten, so it should be pretty legit. It’s amazing to see and it’s starting to get pretty hard! ❤

love the bump!!! I am 15 weeks and I still check for blood after we dtd…
Good to know I’m not the only one! I know they are very common and even more prone to happen with the extra blood flow, but it still scares me. What doesn’t though? haha
Yeah! Love your picture! Congrats on 11 weeks! Maybe doing the *wink* will be more fun in the future as it won’t be so obsessed with the outcome. Glad you had a good time 🙂
haha, thanks, me too!
