My ramblings about my infertility treatment. I never wrote a blog before. I'm a 35 year old woman hoping to have my first baby this year. My boyfriend is a cancer survivor so IVF is our best option right now.

Waiting for the Ultrasound

So, it's been a while. I am now in my 6th week of pregnancy (5 weeks and 4 days to be exact).  My ultrasound is March 4th and I am pretty freaked out about miscarriage, eptopic pregnancy, no heartbeat, etc. etc.

I look up statistics on eptopic pregnancies and miscarriages and first freak myself out and then find some that I like. After I comfort myself, I start to dream of this new life growing inside me. It's amazing!

It's really really exciting, but at the same time, just terrifying! I think it has to do with the nature of IVF - it's so odds based and medical to begin with, so no wonder I am sitting here calculating the odds still. Til I see that heartbeat! Then I'm going shopping!
