Pre-holiday Update

How far along? 14 Weeks, 4 Days

How is Mommy Feeling? 
- Home sick with a bad cold, and very doubtful that it will be gone by the time we leave for Europe tomorrow evening.

How is Daddy Feeling? 
- "Very good...excited"  A man of few words my husband.  

Total weight gain? 
- about 9 lbs from the start of the IVF cycle (7 lbs from the BFP).  Seems like a lot, but my doc seems to think it is fine.

- Boobies have been a little more sore.
- Constantly hungry.  I seem to get terribly hungry right before bed time and during the night (making teeth brushing a several times a night experience).
- Round ligament pain...not fun.

The Belly? 
- There is a bump, but it is still mostly fat.  My belly stick out so far now that people keep rubbing it, but I know the baby belly is still under all that blub, so it is kinda embarrassing.

- Nights are a little better in general, though with this cough I'm still up continually.  The worst is waking up hungry, since I can never fall back to sleep until eating a snack and re-brushing.

What I miss? 
- Exercise, still not getting very much.
- My legs, I swear they have ballooned into flabby tree trunks.
- My skin, still covered in terrible pregnancy acne on my face, chest, arms and back

What I'm looking forward to?
- Feeling the baby move, hopefully soon. 
- Finding out the sex...I think it's a boy.  With the 5 day transfer I have a much higher chance of having a boy, plus I just have this feeling.  I guess we'll find out soon.

Overall, doing well, just worried about traveling with this rotten cold.  I'll be back in 2 weeks, and hoping to read lots of good news from the blogosphere when I return. Also hoping to return with a true pregnancy belly. :)


  1. Have a WONDERFUL time! I hope that I can share some good news of my own when you return. I am so nervous!

  2. Have a great trip! I hope you feel better soon!

  3. Sounds great! Enjoy your holiday. Your hubby sounds like mine :)

  4. Kerri, I miss you!! Please post for us :-)
