Exhausted and Blissfully Pregnant!

Man oh man making a person is so tiring!! I have had no energy what so ever the last week or so. Going to bed at 9:00 every night and still tired throughout the day. But all I can think of is that my body is hard at working growing a baby and that's all that matters to me. I cant wait until my first u/s, just to know everything is okay and progressing as it is supposed to. IF still weighs heavy on my heart and until I know everything is okay I will be nervous (and checking the tp every time I wipe) May 20th is the big day!

A lot of people have been asking me what Kay's reaction was about becoming a big sister and the answer is she doesn't know yet, and I plan to keep it that way until 11-12 weeks. I just cant imagine how I would explain a m/c to a 5 year old if something was to go wrong. Also, I don't want to break her heart because I know she is going to be THRILLED beyond words once she finds out. So I just want to do the logical thing and wait to tell her...even though I am DYING too because I know she will be so excited!!

Symptoms as of now (pretty much the same):

~Boobs are less sore, but still bigger
~Nauseous at various times, and the last few nights I have woken in the middle of the night thinking I was going to puke.
~Sense of smell is still crazy
~And OMG I have been craving tomatoes on everything!!

It is amazing how going through IF can have you enjoying the most horrible pregnancy symptoms. Because, let's face it, that means you are still pregnant!!! It's all good then!!!
When you say your husband had low morph of 11% was that using "strict criteria". 11% sounds GREAT to me, my husbands was 1%!!!

Congratulations on your tiredness and other symptoms :-) Ha ha....though the food aversions will get annoying, it's great to relish in those symptoms :-)
I think you're making a great decision on waiting to tell your daughter. As hard as it will be to wait (and unnecessary b/c you have a sticky baby) I think it will benefit her in the end too b/c that is 11 or 12 weeks less of waiting she'll have to do once she knows! Congrats again, I am SOOOO happy for you hun!

Glad to hear you are doing well!! Thanks for your kind words on my blog as always. I'm hoping my good thoughts about being preg is going to bring my bfp as well. The 20th seems so far away but i'm sure it'll be before you know it. Hope the m/s doesn't get too bad. Keep us posted!!

We waited until 10 weeks (after our first appointment and we saw the heartbeat on the u/s) until we told my 9 year old stepson. Just make sure everyone else knows that she doesn't know yet so it doesn't slip! We had a hard time keeping it from him. :)
