10-week (and final) U/S

I had my last U/S before I am to be released to my OB this morning. The U/S went well. Nothing has changed except the babies have grown. They are all more distinguished and were moving around. I was 10 minutes late (I'm usually never late) but fortunately they still saw me. I had to drive out to the appt. (45 min.) hardly able to see due to a migraine headache that started right as I dropped Evan off for school. Now that the last U/S is done, it will be time to schedule the reduction. I am completely not looking forward to it in any way, shape, or form, but I cannot wait until everything will be the way it's going to be and this pregnancy can just progress with (hopefully) no complications. The IF that was at the U/S today expressed his sadness for the upcoming reduction. It is really sad to think about after seeing them all dancing around in there today. I tried to take a nap today but I couldn't stop thinking about the procedure. I ended up doing a search online to see at what stage fetuses could feel pain. While it doesn't make me feel any better, it looks like fetuses don't feel anything until the third trimester at the earliest. I just can't wait until this is over. If I ever pursue surrogacy again, I will never allow this to happen again.

My morning sickness is like a roller coaster. Yesterday it was horrible (although I've only actually thrown up once thus far). Today it is not bad (I say that now). Fortunately I get to stop my meds tomorrow. That makes me so happy. I will post when I find out what is going on because I don't even know. Til then... here is a pic of the U/S today.

So sad.

Hopefully it will all be over soon and you can focus your energy in growing a happy healthy baby!
