Baby has a Strong Heartbeat! πŸ’“

We had our first ultrasound on Tuesday at our clinic and it went perfectly. We saw baby Frostie ❄ on the screen measuring exactly on track . The tech unfortunately wouldn’t let us hear the heart beat stating it was not “safe” which was disappointing but she did show us it beating on the screen and that was enough for us. Baby’s heart beat was strong at 151bpm and everything looked great. Baby is doing well πŸ‘ΆπŸ»β€.

Baby Balogh’s heart beating

I also had another beta hcg drawn yesterday and it’s increased significantly at 65,610 which is a great number for this stage of pregnancy.

We met with our Reproductive Endocrinologist after the ultrasound who I adore and she hugged us and told us how happy she is. She said everything looked so good that she discharged us from the clinic at Mount Sinai Fertility 😫. I was not expecting this but she said this is a good thing. She only continues to monitor patients that she has concerns with, so by discharging us this shows she feels strongly about this pregnancy. She told us a heart beat of 151bpm is very strong and we have no reason to worry at this time.

I even get to stop taking the progesterone twice daily next Wednesday at 8 weeks!! 🀩

I have been feeling good but the nausea has hit full force in the past week. I feel sick morning to night and it’s been kind of hard. But I’m not complaining! The fact I feel so sickly means baby B is growing and just reminding me he/she is there! I was prescribed Diclectin for the nausea and its helping a bit.

Made me chuckle that the anti-nausea medication has a pregnant lady on it πŸ˜‚

I also have been feeling very tired and definitely have been thankful for afternoon (and sometimes evening) naps. I’ve never been a napper as I hate wasting my day but these days I welcome them ☺😴.

I am currently off work as per my RE and have a few more weeks off. I am very thankful for this ability to rest and take care of myself without having to worry about working in a stressful nursing environment, especially with everything I’ve gone through to get to this point. This pregnancy is and must be my number one priority.

We have another ultrasound next Thursday at 8 weeks 1 day and I’m so excited to see little baby Balogh again and see how much he/she has grownβ™‘β™‘.

I am currently in the process of being referred to a Barrie OBGYN specialist to take over our prenatal care, but in the meantime my family GP will assume care. My RE in Toronto sent over a detailed package with instructions for what she wants him to do and how I should be monitored. It’s been scary knowing I won’t be monitored anymore by the clinic I’ve come to trust so much but I know she wouldn’t do anything she didn’t believe was right and safe for us both.

We appreciate the love and support we have been receiving from everyone, & how invested everyone is in our story and journey 🀰🏻❀.

We still have a long way to go but we are 7 weeks down and finally I am starting to really believe this is our miracle. We are so excited for what’s to come. Baby Balogh’s due date remains Novemever 13th, 2019 πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸ˜.
