Here’s an updated version of my pregnancy milestones and timeline, since I haven’t updated in about a month. Not too much has changed – which is a good thing! People keep asking me how I’m feeling, am I having a difficult time, and the like. I always tell them so far so good… though I hear it gets a bit harder at the end!!
1/27/11 – first day of last period
2/12/11 – possible conception date
2/27/11 – started to get a bit suspicious that I was pregnant
3/6/11 – positive pregnancy test!!
3/18/11 – bloodwork came back normal – about 66,000 HCG at 6.5 weeks
3/21/11 – ultrasound – saw heartbeat (145 bpm) and our grain-of-rice baby! also saw a second sac (irregularly shaped and completely empty)
3/25/11 – told my parents by putting a bun in the oven and asking my mom to check on something I had in the oven — I’ve never heard her scream so loud!
3/27/11 – told Paul’s parents by sending an e-mail with the ultrasound picture and calling to ask them for input on some “doctor’s results”
4/14/11 – doctor’s appointment – heard heartbeat
4/15/11 – told everyone at work the good news
mid- to late April – the tiniest baby bump has appeared (though I can’t rule out bloating…)
4/30/11 – made it through the first trimester!
5/12/11 – next doctor’s appointment
