Wow, 12 weeks pregnant today. I didn’t think this day would come. I never thought I’d get this far after all we’ve been through to have a baby over the last 22 months. A miscarriage, a dozen fibroids, multiple surgeries (PAIN!), bad news after bad news, tube removed, other tube damaged, finally the dreaded “IVF is your only option” and then a cancelled IVF cycle. Then our embryo transfer in the early hours of a snow storm in January…it’s all been just one crazy, wild, ride. Not many ups and mostly downs. My marriage has been tested at times, I’ve had many bouts of depression throughout the whole thing and honestly felt like I would never be able to have a biological child. (DH felt the same) It is so, so hard to stay positive and optimistic when all you get is bad news.
But here I am 12 weeks pregnant and Baby P is doing just fine!! Just had our NT scan this morning and he/she is still moving all around and the ultrasound tech said she believes Baby P is just fine (measurements looked great) and that our written results in a week should confirm that.
I finally, finally feel as if I’m going to be a mom. This is really happening. 🙂 I just can’t believe it.
I just want to thank all the Bees who have supported me over these last few years. I’ve received so many nice, encouraging emails, replies from so many sweet Bees. Most are from the infertility thread that I frequent, but not all! So all of you please know that I appreciate all the kindness and encouragement and I’m just so, so thankful. And excited!! This is truly a dream come true for my DH and me. 🙂
