Wiggle worms

We had our last appointment with the fertility doctor. We gave away all our extra meds and syringes. We (I) had our last transvaginal ultrasound. (If you don't know what that is, be thankful).

We got four pictures of PB & J, but they would NOT stop moving. Waving, turning, twisting. We couldn't even get a decent heartbeat. But they are measuring perfectly (after 2 tries each to measure) and their heartbeats are strong.

Does it ever get easier? The waiting, the worrying? Every time we approach an u/s, about 2 days before, I start to worry and get anxious. Is this how it is going to be for the rest of my life? Is this what having children does to you? Oh well. It is worth it!

It is my birthday weekend! On the 22nd, I will be 33. I think that is pretty cool.

Happy Spring everyone!

Pregnancy gets easier once you feel them moving regularly and parenting, well it is a different kind of worrying and you get so busy in the doing it is not as bad. The worry early pregnancy, especially a pregnancy before having any kids is the worst IMO.

Congrats on graduating!!!

Hope you have a great birthday!
The worry when you are a parent is so much different than when pregnant, it just becomes the way you are, but it doesn't fill your mind 24/7 like before they're born.

Yay for a great scan! And I too began worrying a LOT less once we started feeling our baby move. Until that point, I kept getting nervous a few days before each scan as well. I think it's normal, but just keep in mind that the odds are in your favor for things being fine.

Hope you have a great birthday weekend! Glad your scan was so great and could put your mind at ease (at least for the time being!)
