Its been a few days since I found out I am pregnant and I've been through a whirlwind of emotions. It started with shock, moved into fear and now has developed into pure excitement and love for the child I am growing inside of me. I already feel rather protective of our little Bubs (which is what Dan and I have decided to call the baby until we know the sex) and actually apologized when I ate a hog dog yesterday. (seriously? I forgot that pregnant women shouldnt eat them but they are so good! I'll try to be better from here on out!)
In updates, I only have results of my first beta at 14 DPO, which was 100. My 2nd draw was taken Saturday afternoon and my last draw will be this AM so I will have the final 2 numbers by tonight. Once I get the final 2 numbers, I get to set up my first U/S for 7 weeks! Holy moly, thats only a few weeks away.
I really need to thank all of you for your well wishes. I read them all back last night and was overcome with tears and it just solidified how greatful I am for each and every one of you. So thank you!
Finally, this week is National Infertility Week, sponsored by NAIW. I just ask that everyone takes a minute to say a prayer or think a kind thought for the millions of woman who struggle with IF each day. I know that, for me, IF is something I wont ever forget. The pain and struggle associated with it will forever haunt my heart. For anyone who is still TTC, please know that you are always in my thoughts.
Just the other night the baby was cryin’
So I got out of bed rocked her awhile
And I held her tightAnd I told her it would be all right
And my mind went back to a few years ago
When we tried so longWe almost gave up hope
And I remember youComin' in and tellin’ me the news
Oh man we were livin’
Goin’ crazy in the kitchen
We danced and screamed and held each other tight
We laughed until we cried
