Blighted Bellies n Pelvic Dreams

My journey to having a baby as a 38 yo with undetected Pelvic Inflammation Disease

First scan ever ever EVER!

on May 23, 2013

6wks 4days OR 6wks 6days

My friends all had babies in their teens and twenties. A majority were single mums and delivered thru public health. I have held their newborns, fed them, drove them to sleep, babysat and changed nappies.

But i have never ever seen a scan!

I have Mashed vegies, wiped up spills, held their hands, watched first steps and heard first words. I have rubbed sore bellies, fixed up scrapes with bandaids and rubbed bonjella on teething gums.

But i have never ever seen a scan!

Until tomorrow……

My first pregnancy only had a desperate scan on a Saturday night by a doctor trying to sort out my mess. The ultrasounds that followed were to diagnose what was happening and i viewed an empty womb.

Until tomorrow……

I am only a smidgen worried but probably its more being nervous. I am past the stage where my previous pregnancy malfunctioned so that doesn’t worry me. I have morning sickness like a sobering sailor so i know my hormones are kicking still. I have maintained a positive outlook from the start of the ivf-fet process and thats paid off so far.

Its like two week wait all over again, its taking that step into the unknown.

Its like the pregnancy test-i will cry, guaranteed! But this time my Ranga partner will be by my side xoxo

    Can’t wait to hear your report! 🙂

  4. I cried at the first and the first time I saw them moving. It’s normal to worry. You’re nervous! It will be such a relief to see the little one(s). I’m so grateful for the ultrasound tech. She was like a tour guide pointing out the sights. “Here are the babies. This is Baby A and here is its yolk sac. You can see its heart beating over here.” haha!
