It's Official

I am knocked up!  After another two tests that were so faint that I didn't think it could be true, I broke down and did a blood test yesterday.  Dr. M called me back himself to deliver the news.  I am so excited, yet sooo scared.

It's so hard to believe that after months of fertility treatments and no response, that my body would get the message on our "break" month.  I am just really glad that I have gotten to know my body so well, and could tell that I was ovulating.  Had it not been for all of the girls on The Bump, etc....I would not know anything about how to get pregnant.  So, I can't thank them enough! 

We were all set to do IUI next month which was going to drain us of at least $1000 per cycle.  I was really apprehensive about spending that kind of money, but if it would give us what we so badly want in the end...okey doke!  Looks like that is not an issue now!  So ironic, right?

I am going to try to take one day at a time and know that each pregnancy is different.  What happened last time may not happen this time and I can't live each day in fear that it will.  I need to wake up each morning and say "today, I am pregnant", and move on.

Preliminary dates:

LMP : Feb 23, 2012
O date: March 1, 2012

2012 is a leap year, so who knows....maybe we will have a leap year baby!  :)

So, there ya have it!  We will only be telling a few people (need to know basis) right away, so if you follow my blog....shhhhhhh...... just count yourself as privy!  :)  Please don't blab!
