Enjoying this new chapter

After 11 years of trying to have a baby, I am really enjoying being pregnant. I just love saying it: pregnant. I called to order medication yesterday and the pharmacist asked what it was for and I answered: pregnancy. It is all so surreal! I am trying on maternity clothes and having a blast. I purchased a blanket for our baby. If there are two then I will need to buy another one. Buying the blanket made it a bit more real. This was the first time that I entered the baby aisle and enjoyed it. I didn't cringe or tear up and hurry out of there, I just browsed. Ah, bliss!

So far I feel great. I have had some nausea, but not too bad. I am hungry all of the time but have no appetite. The nurse said that I need to eat more and drink more as I was dehydrated at my last visit. Easier said than done, but I will do whatever it takes. That is about it in the symptom department.

I have my first ultrasound on Jan 11th and we find out how many babies there are. We had 2 embryos transferred and we are praying that both survived. I have taken my first belly picture and thought that I would share it with all of you.
