Guess I Should Have Knocked on Wood...

...a little bit harder!  I had my first pregnancy puke, ever, this morning.  It's my own fault though.  Last pregnancy I avoided citrus fruits the whole time because they made me feel gaggy.  Last night right before bed, I decided that instead of eating something blander and more substantial, it would be a good idea to eat an orange.  This morning I upchucked orange juice.  Needless to say, citrus will not be making another appearance on the menu for this pregnancy either.

Normally I'm very strong stomached (I mean, I've had food poisoning without throwing up - twice!), so even though I felt nauseous beforehand, I was still shocked when I actually threw up.  I'm still not feeling so hot today, and really hoping I don't embarrass myself with a trash can puke at work.  I thought by making it past the 10 week mark with no symptoms I would be in the clear, but no such luck.

Other than that, things are still going well.  I've been feeling good, other than this morning.  I'm just starting to get the tiniest baby bump, but I don't think anyone but me would be able to tell yet.  I have been spotting at least a little bit almost every day for the past few weeks, but I've pretty much gotten over being worried about it.  I'm just hoping that the SCH resolves itself soon so the biggest perk of pregnancy (not bleeding for 9 months) doesn't pass me by completely.

In other news, I have been meds free for 2 days now!  I'm really enjoying not having to remember to take my meds every night, and I'm not missing the nasty suppositories one bit!

Only 9 more days until the next ultrasound and our first OB appointment!  I'm excited to get to that stage and to see my IPs again when they come down for the the appointment.  I'm also making a list of questions to ask my OB to make sure she is the right match for me.  Number 1 on my list is finding someone who is supportive of vaginal delivery of twins (I don't think I should have to go through a major abdominal surgery just because it's easier for the doctor), and I'm thinking of already making a case for letting my husband and both my IPs in the operating room for delivery (most likely I will have to deliver in the operating room just in case, even if it's a vaginal delivery).  I figure if I start fighting the strict 1 support person rule now, I might be able to get an exception for us.  I suspect we will be the first ever surrogacy situation at the hospital, so I'd like to work to set a good precedent for others!

  1. eeewwwww.....hope you feel better soon!!
    Lemon essential oil can really help with tummy sickness. Smelling it when nauseous can help. :) Just an idea.

    Yay on the ultrasound! It's so exciting to think about! I'm just 2 weeks away from transfer and already thinking about those things...I can't imagine what I will be like once pregnant.
