I have made it through the first trimester! I had a doctor's appt today. Pretty routine stuff. Got my flu shot. My doctor found the baby's heartbeat (151 bpm) with the fetal doppler. I will not go back to see her until Jan 3. That will be the longest time without seeing a doctor since before we started IVF. I feel free!
At last week's 12 wk NT ultrasound, we found out the sex of our baby and it's a BOY! We are revealing this tomorrow to my parents in person. I have the little pics that point out his little package.
Now that I know that I am having a little boy, it seems alot more real to me. We are already thinking of names and whether to circumcise or not. We will have a good long time to ponder these things.
The nausea and fatigue seems to be lessening. I am taking prenatal yoga classes 1x/week which is nice (I'm the smallest belly in the class). It's great to be at the point that I feel good about sharing the news with people outside family and close friends, though I am not ready for a FB announcement and don't know if I ever will be. I am in my cousin's wedding this weekend, so that should be alot of fun. Lots of socializing, eating, and dancing to look forward to.
Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!
