8 Week Pictures

I am actually 9w4ds but I am behind on blogging so here is my 8 week ultrasound picture.  Not just a blob anymore!!  This is the back of our baby with the head to the left.  You can start to see an arm bud on the top =)  Also the heartbeat was 178.

I am feeling pretty good actually.  I don't really have morning sickness.  Sometimes feel sick in the day, but if I drink ginger ale I feel better.  After this ultrasound, I was released to my OB.  My first OB appt is on Feb 5th.  It took me forever to find an OB I wanted to go to and then when I did (after lots of research online) I called my insurance to make sure they were a participating provider and they told me yes.  Well of course it couldn't be that easy it never is with doctors or insurance!!  When I called the OB to make the appt the receptionist told me they don't take my insurance.  So to make a long story short my insurance called their billing department and I am covered.  I am hoping it's true and I don't get a big bill!!  I was able to stop the estrace.  Now just continue baby aspirin and crinone till 12 weeks.  I am suppose to start backing off my Metformin at 11 weeks and stop completely at 12 but I want to stop now and wondering if it would be okay.  The last time I refiled my script for it they gave me a different generic of it and it gives me awful tummy cramps that keep me awake for hours at night.  I am not completely sure why I need to keep taking it since it was for my PCOS.  So I guess I need to talk to my doctor. 

Here is my 8 week belly picture.  Probably most of my belly is still from my OHSS because my ovaries are still 7-8 cms each.  But there it is!!

I was FINALLY able to figure out how to put those fancy tabs at the top of the page that you guys have!! lol So you can check out the short easy versions of Our TTC Journey and IVF Timeline.  I hope to soon add a tab of pictures of G and I and a tab for Bump pics.  I will get there soon!
