Bing bong

All is well so far this pregnancy. We are 8 weeks 1 day today. Started spotting brown at 6 weeks 6 days and was a bit worried. My doctor had me go to the ER and get checked out. The did a very non informative US and said the baby is in my uterus and there was heart activity. 

So until today I was pretty antsy. We had our high risk appointment and US. Little bing bong is measuring right on track with a heartbeat of 159bpm. The doctor reassured me that spotting can be very normal in the first trimester. They will be doing US every 4 weeks and starting at 32 weeks we will do NST. They said because of my weight we will have an early glucose test. And another if that one is fine when they normally do it. I’m high risk because of my history of cardiac arrhythmia and ablations. Praying for a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Here is our little bing bong today:

Baby #2 update

We had our first Beta HCG on 11/08/17 (4 weeks) and that was 90! Follow up Beta HCG on 11/10/17 (4 weeks 2 days) was 260! 

So far so good. The number doubled within 48 hours. They are both higher than they were with Reese. But this pregnancy was a whole different conception type. I feel pretty good so far. A few bouts of nausea here and there and sore breasts. But I can’t complain. I’m so thankful and blessed for this gift. And I pray that this little bean sticks and becomes a healthy new addition to our family!

We have our first OB/GYN appointment on 11/22/17 at 6 weeks.

Well, we are pregnant! This was our fourth try! We had frozen sperm from NW Cryobank shipped to our house. We did one insemination 12 hours after my LH surge the day before we left for Disney. Chris drove with friends and took the other vial in the tank with her. And we inseminated 24 hours after the first insem. So maybe it was the Disney magic or multiple inseminations! Who knows but I got a VVFL on 9DPO just like with Reese. 

I was so tempted to tell Chris right away. BUT I waited 24 hours. Had my friend make a shirt for Reese and surprised her last night! 

It was amazing! She was so surprised and I even got the positive digital last night! My friend helped out a lot to distract her while I put everything together!

And just to make sure I took another this morning lol. 

Disney Trip

We surprised Reese after doing so well with her surgery! 

We went with friends and had blast even with it being a mini vacation! 

We had so much fun and we are going back 11/16 - 11/20!

Reese's Tonsillectomy & Adenoidectomy surgery

Reese's surgery was a bit tough! She overall has done great! But post op days 3 - 7 were the worst. The first few days she required around the clock Motrin and Oxycodone. And day three she was vomiting and not eating or drinking so ENT called in dexamethasone and Zofran. They helped tremendously! By day 10/11 she was much better. And on day 15 we went to Disney as planned!
