Feeling Free!

Well, I forgot to tell y'all that I was able to come off of my patches and estrace after my last RE appointment. And I only have to take my endometrin until this friday and then I am DONE!!!! It has been super freeing to come off of some of my meds. Also, my RE told me that I will only take my metformin til I am 12 weeks and so after that I will only be taking a PNV and an aspirin!! I am totally psyched about that!!!!! No more having to remember to put extra meds in my purse so if we go out I will have them. No more lists to check off the meds I am taking daily..just to keep up. No more patch marks on my belly!!! And this maybe TMI but no more wearing pads due to the estrace and endometrin..and you know what I am talking about!! YAY!!! I even went out and bought that cocoa butter lotion for my belly. I couldn't use it before b/c I had those stinkin patches on and I didn't want to make them come off too early! I know that this lotion isn't miracle cream, but I am gonna try it. My sister used it and she has NO stretch marks...so maybe I will be so lucky. However, if I get a million stretch marks I will not care b/c they will be a reminder of this miracle child!

As you can tell, I am having a much better day. Thank God!! For the first time since we found out I was pg I am able to get excited about this baby. I didn't want to get excited before b/c I was so scared. But all of sudden today I started to get butterflies in my tummy and I began daydreaming about my days at home with babe! Todd asked me what a day would possibly look like and I was clueless. I know at first there will be alot of feeding and napping for the baby. And changing diapers....but I am not sure what else. Besides of course trying to clean the house and keep up with the laundry.... and of course me actually sleeping and eating. I CAN'T WAIT!!!! I am ready for all the sleepless nights and spit up all over me. I am ready for it ALL!

So far I haven't been feeling sick. I have been having this pressure feeling in my lower abdomen and I am thinking it is just my uterus stretching and growing! I am not stressing over it. I haven't been really paying attention to pg symptoms. I am looking forward to my first OB appt. next Monday and getting to see Babe again! This time I am planning on bringing the camera and recording the heartbeat!!!

Thanks for sharing the new ultrasound and belly pics! You are looking fantastic! I think that is so awesome they let you bring a flash drive for your ultrasounds. I sure wish I could have done that! They aren't even burning cd's for patients anymore here b/c of privacy laws!

Be sure to get the Palmers cream. It is great!! I used it both times and not one single stretch mark on my belly.

Yay for less meds!!! Those patch marks stick around for a while,(at least they did on me) They'll make you thankful to be done with them! And thank goodness no more Estrace! I think that was worse than the shots, it's uncomfortable and those who've used it know exactly why. Hopefully you won't get too many stretch marks, I didn't get alot of mine till I started swelling. Drink lots of water, that is supposed to help too. I'm glad you're able to be excited about the baby. I know I am! You will feel alot of different pains and aches in your uterus. That is a good sign. There's alot of change going on in there. :)
Love ya!
