3rd ultrasound

Well, here is lil' Jeremias growing big and strong.  I am considered 8 weeks.  My due date is APril 16, 2014.  I am feeling pregnant.  I might be forgetting, but I think I have a touch more nausea this time around.  Just a general, low nauseous feeling, nothing extreme, no actual vomiting, but enough to want to keep something on my belly.  The last few days, nothing has seemed appetizing to me.  Jeremias is using my energy to grow, leaving me a bit tired.  My youngest started back to pre-school, so I sometimes use the afternoon, while she is at school, to catch a quick rest.  I have also suffered from allergies this past week.  There is a lot of pollen in the air right now.  The fertility clinic said it was alright to manage it with Alavert and Benadryl, so have been taking these medications minimally to help.  Benadryl makes me sleepy so I tend to only take this at bedtime.  I look forward to the first frost to kill all that pollen.  I also look forward to my belly popping out more, as right now, I just feel pudgy.  I love the fullness of a pregnant body.  :)  

I am done with the fertility clinic and my local reproductive medicine monitoring clinic.  I am officially released to my OB physician.  I look forward to filling him in on all the details of this surrogacy.  My first appointments are later this month.   

I am supposed to continue the 2 estradiol patches every other day and my progeterone vaginal inserts until Sept. 21st.  

Grow, lil' guy, grow!  :)
