It’s Alive — Alive!
8w1d and not only does it have a heartbeat but it moves! And has limb buds! Most importantly, it is alive and, presumably, healthy.
I have one more appointment with my RE and then I am transferred back to my regular OB/GYN.
The incubatee is fine; the incubator is still kind of a mess. After nearly falling apart emotionally, I am now on another antidepressant, Wellbutrin, in addition to the Prozac I am currently taking. It will take a few weeks to start working, but at least I am doing something instead of wallowing in my own misery. I am not sure what triggered this particular trough, but here I am.
I am still taking daily progesterone, HCG shots every 3 days, and Lovenox/baby aspirin every day. It’s quite a routine. I can stop the HCG at 10 weeks and the progesterone at 12, so only a few more weeks to go.
