We're back from a wonderful two week vacation. Part beach vacation, part urban adventure, part wilderness experience (sans malaria). All in all, very enjoyable! But it is good to be home, too.
I am still pregnant. It feels weird (and wonderful!) to type those words because everything still feels very tentative. I had hoped for some definite morning sickness to signal that the pregnancy is progressing well, but I haven't had much. Weird thing to wish for, I know, but it's true. The most "morning sickness" I've had is a couple of days of not much appetite and one day of gagging while brushing my teeth, but mostly nothing to write home about. The only "real" pregnancy symptoms have been the frequent urination and fatigue. My breasts are also slightly sore the past few days, but it's subtle.
Monday we'll go in for an ultrasound. By then I'll be 7 wks, 6 days, by my calculations, so there should definitely be a heartbeat. I feel like it could easily go either way (how else could I feel after four miscarriages, I guess?!), but of course, we would be thrilled to see a little heart beating!
The whole Ph.D. being over hasn't fully sunk in either. After six years of work, it's finally - and seemingly suddenly - done. There were a couple of wedding invitations and cards sitting in the mailbox awaiting our return addressed to Dr. Will and Dr. Mo - funny to see! It will be strange at the hospital to have people introduce me as Dr. and have patients call me that. It will be awhile until it feels like that title belongs to me.
So a lot still to digest on both personal and professional fronts. But all wonderful goodness. I'm one pretty lucky gal.
I see that much has happened in Blogland while we've been away - I look forward to catching up with everyone's news over the next few days! It's good to be home!
