Heard the most amazing sound today...

Our baby's heartbeat :)
Had my first meeting with our OB. She works out of our clinic, but also has her own clinic in Milton. She was so nice, and went over everything with me. She did not make me feel bad about my panic disorder either, which comforted me. I think I will switch to her, and maybe change the hospital we will give birth in. We were thinking Credit Valley, but I really like this OB and she practices out of Milton. I will discuss with Aaron tonight.

After our chat she said "Lets go hear your baby's heart beat"...soon as she picked it up, I had tears running down my cheeks. I felt pregnant again, I haven't the last few days...but she said everything is perfect.

She said I should only gain between 20-25 pounds and I agree. I am going to join a prenatal yoga class and continue our nightly walks :)

Well, I am off to do laundry and maybe sneak in a nap before Aaron gets home :)

Sooooo glad to hear the baby today :) It was a moment I will never forget...LOL...it was in the same room I had our IUI's done in.

Wonderful weekend!!!

What a wonderful weekend. One I never thought Aaron and I would experience. On Saturday night Mom and Dad called us over to have dinner because they had a gift for the baby. We thought that was so cute. We ordered in Chinese food, so yummy. Side note, I am finally getting my appetite back J So we had dinner and then Dad brought in my old hamper. They bought it at Eaton’s (yes I am dating myself) and it is in perfect condition. We get it for our baby, it is a very cute blue, pink, white and yellow plaid! Inside was a few onesies, wash cloths, sleepers (adorable) and super cute Classic Winnie The Pooh outfit with a hat and blanket and a ceramic dish set by Beatrix Potter and a very adorable picture frame from Hallmark…It says “Baby to bee” with a cute bumble bee on it J We are very lucky, well, this baby is very lucky and loved so much already.

On Sunday it was a rainy day so Mom drove down and we went to lunch with her and took her to Babies R US. I tell ya, that store is so much more fun when you are shopping for own miracle. We picked a bunch of stuff that we really like and got an idea of what we will be spending for our miracle.

I have my appt at our fertility clinic again on the 22nd of June, with our interim OB until we get to our official OB. We will be doing the IPS testing the week after June 22nd. Our 1st OB appt is on August 3rd.

Have I said how much I am in love with my bean…and so enjoying every minute of being pregnant…??

Pics to follow...

Only here from now on

As most of you know, I belong to a site that is near and dear to my heart.

I feel I can no longer blog there about my miracle pregnancy, so I will only be blogging here.

Yesterday there was a blow up on the boards, a rude person thinks pregnant people do not belong on the site because it is not called pregnancy.ca. So to avoid all stress, I am only blogging here from now on. It really hurt me because I have done nothing but support everyone on that board, and I have made such amazing friendships because of IVF.ca...it is too bad one rotten apple spoils it for many. Really sad how IF can turn a person.

AFM - Feeling much better - still not 100% at night, but it is so worth it.

I am usually in mat clothes now :) So exciting!!

Mom has gone wild buying baby stuff...I have a feeling she has a new hobby now LOL

Anyways...hope you all continue to follow me here.

Our teddy bear :)

The U/S lady said in one of the pics our baby looks like a cuddly teddy bear...so that has stuck!! I still prefer miracle bean :)

U/S was perfect! Our DR said "super" and that pregnancy suits me Felt good after that. 2 arms, 2 legs...and the bean looks like a baby now!! I think that helped make it feel more real.

I got in the car on the way home and cried...since I updated FB from the parking lot and sent close friends emails and the response I got made me cry...we are so loved and this baby is so loved and wanted, it made me feel so blessed.

Here is the most recent pic of our natural miracle surprise :)

So a few of you might know - Our theme for our natural miracle will be Beatrix Potter, I find Winnie the Pooh has been done, and Beatrix Potter was my theme when I was a baby, chosen by my wonderful parents.

So today I was shopping in Winners, I have had my eye on this outfit for a while, I find it gender netural, since we will not be finding out the sex of the baby...so I finally felt comfortable enough to buy it :) I never thought I would be buying my own baby gifts :) it is so amazing!! My Oma - Babys great Oma sent money for the baby :)

June 8th is our next U/S and OB appt :)

Can you tell we are stupid excited??
