Oh my goodness! We are pregnant! Praise God!
I called in earlier this afternoon for my beta results and the first thing the nurse said was ‘Congratulations’!
Beta number one (10dp3dt) is 209 and beta number two (12dp3dt) is 422.
Feeling so happy and blessed and full of joy.
The last few days have been very tough on me as I have been a complete emotional wreck and I even had a few breakdowns of crying fits; which is not like me at all.
I’ve been waiting for today’s news for years and the words “you are pregnant” feels surreal and as if a huge rock has been lifted from my soul.
Oh and before my emotional breakdown that started on Sunday, I wrote a journal entry last week that I wanted to share… maybe I did know I was pregnant?
I feel the presence of our little one already.
I know we are together at last.
My little one came back to us as I knew they would.
Three years ago, this very cycle, I got my BFP, but miscarried at 9.5 weeks. After struggling many
months years with infertility we embraced IVF as our next step.
Fast forward to a little over 10 days ago, on November 12, I went in for my egg retrieval (ovulation day in IVF terms) and three days later transferred two beautiful embryos.
Although this cycle mirrors my previous BFP cycle, I know in my heart of hearts that this one will result in our beautiful healthy take home baby R.
The one in my dreams, the one I have thought about since I was eighteen years old. Her rosy cheeks and big brown eyes.
Feeling blessed beyond belief.
So for now I will continue to stay in the present and enjoy this pregnancy and try and stay as positive as possible, for J, for me and for our little one who is snuggling in for the long haul…
Oh and a very special ‘thank you’ to everyone for your continued encouraging words and prayers.. they mean so very much to me and more than you’ll ever know!
