Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

7W6D

1 day closer to 8 weeks....WHEW. The 8 week mark is scary. According to Dr. H, once you get to 8 weeks, the miscarriage rate drops to only 2%. Some websites I have read show 12 weeks is the critical mark, but since I transfer back to my OB at 12 weeks, I'll go with the 8 with Dr. H.

Peanut is doing wonderful. Growing, growing, growing! I can't remember the measurements exactly, but he/she was measuring at 8W0D. WOOHOO - one day ahead! Gonna be a go-getter! The hb was 170 this time. According to old wives tales, theories, rumors, and websites if it stays over 140 then it's gonna be a girl! Speaking of, we still have yet to determine if we are going to find out the gender of Peanut, when the time comes. We have gone through Pros & Cons lists...sometimes coming out even, sometimes with one ahead. I like the surprise at the end of the journey to look forward to...BUT planning would be MUCH easier....and we might get lots of fun monogrammed things for Peanut. Grammie was not too happy about this announcement. She wants to buy "specific" things for the him/her. Green and Yellow just isn't fun! HA! I told her she can buy "generic" items now and "specific" items later. This would give us more presents from Grammie!!! (It's a trick I tell ya!)

The left cyst is gone - YEAH! The right one is about 27X14mm and is shrinking from last measurements. I had an OB Panel of b/w done, including peeing in a cup. REALLY....you think you could have told someone? I went before the hoo-hoo cam, then again while I was waiting for the lab dude. THEN he gives me the cup. I am not a pee-on-demand kind of gal. I can't just "go." So then I had to sit and drink 3 cups of water and read 2 magazines before I had the urge to do anything again. And even then it was only like 1/4 of the cup! EESH.

Peanut's Photo of the Week coming tonight...I sure am going to miss these weekly photo ops when I graduate.....

5 nice things to say...:

Thank you for the great update! So glad you are doing well, hmmm, any preference for boy or girl? I know as long as it's healthy, of course! I always saw myself as the mother of sons since I'm such a tomboy...

Be prepared to pee at each appointment now! This was such a great update! I can't wait to see the picture of the little nubbins!

Congratulations! You've made it to 8 weeks. I can't wait to be there with you, only a week and 2 days to go! I think 8 weeks is a big mark too, 12 weeks is even better, but we all know it seems like forever away! I'm the same as you on wanting to find out. I've always wanted that surprise, but planning would be so much easier if we find out. I think I'm leaving the decision up to DH and that means we'll find out.
Can't wait to see peanut's picture!

I am not preferring either gender right now. We tried so hard to make this baby that there is no way I could be so biased as to want one over the other.
