I have a week (6 days and 12 hours to be exact) until my next scan.
The 12 week one which I consider my graduation one, launching me into the second trimester. It isn't done at the fertility clinic but at the hospital where I will give birth, and it is done from the outside - through the belly. I told a friend that my scans to date are all done up through the vag.
She was appalled; "How embarrassing!"
I don't need to tell you guys that she hasn't been through IVF. I hardly notice an internal scan these days, you need to scrape out half my womb lining to get so much of a flinch out of me nowadays.
I haven't had a scan for three weeks so I'm getting increasingly jittery.
I don't feel like things have gone wrong. I'm being sick and getting noticeably bigger - but the latter has less to do with anything growing in my womb but more to do with the only thing that eases the nausea is to eat.
So I am.
I've always been fairly short and had hairy toes but now I have added a second breakfast to my hobbit-like traits. (And mid-morning snack, late morning snack, lunch ...)
Still it helps fill the time.
I wonder how much I can eat in the next week.
