Today I am 15 weeks pregnant. We finally got our very first BFP on cycle 6 doing at home insemination’s. This post is all about the first 15 weeks.
I first tested at 10DPO and got a BFN, however, I had some slight body changes so decided to test again on 12DPO and got my first BFP. It was very exciting and I actually cried when I saw that second line.
I experienced horrible
morning all day sickness the first 14 weeks but now at 15 weeks I feel like it has settled down.
We had our first midwife appointment at 8 weeks but it was just a general appointment with paper work. Our first scan was a week or so later and we got to see the heart beat for the first time (we still haven’t heard it though!).
At 12 weeks and 6 days we had our second ultrasound. The baby had a perfect heart beat above 160bpm and was moving around and kicking me (although I couldn’t feel anything).
After this ultrasound we decided to announce our news on Facebo.ok (we had already told our immediate family and close friends). I also let my work know the next day who were very happy for me.
Here is how we announced on Facebo.ok-
The only problem I have is I can’t get in contact with my midwife. I have been calling for the last 2 weeks trying to get an appointment after our first 2 scans and she is either not at work or away. I haven’t seen her since the first appointment at 8 weeks and now I am in my 2nd trimester. I am honestly thinking about requesting a new midwife. I called again this morning and left another message for her to call me so let’s see if she does!
I can’t wait to find out the gender (although I feel like it is a girl!).
Good luck to all those trying for their BFP with at home insemination’s. Patience and timing are the key’s in this journey 🙂
