Why I'm Wordless

I know it might seem weird that I just posted the picture with my last post and didn't put any commentary. Here's why I did that:
  • I'll be perfectly honest. My emotions are all over the map about this. Excited. Scared. Overwhelmed. Beyond surprised. I need to time to sort through all of this if indeed we've been blessed with a little miracle.
  • That test was taken 3 days after my missed period. Way, way, way early. I don't go to the doctor until next Thursday. So different than with IVF where I got to see increasing betas every two days. I'm still not convinced it could be possible.
  • I've heard of other people getting pregnant naturally after IVF and infertility (Yay for AP, Waiting for our Child, and Hope) but I was absolutely, positively convinced that wouldn't happen to me. In fact, I was laughing with another IVF friend just about a week ago when she told me that I better be careful since we weren't using protection. "Ha! Ha! Yeah right! I'm infertile remember?" It's like winning the lottery. You know someone will win it but it won't be you.
  • And perhaps in the TMI category, when we were trying before IVF, we literally had sex every day during my ovulation period. This past month, we had sex once.
So there you go, friends. I guess I'll be hanging tight over here until next Thursday and will let you know how this all turns out.


  1. Trust me when I say I know how you feel. Gosh - IVF didn't even work for me, so I put myself in the category of NEVER ever getting pregnant. . . let alone without treatment. You will constantly be in my thoughts. :)

  2. I've seen quite a few people lately get pregnant after IVF. I am praying that I will be one of those lucky ones too. I only have less than 4 wks left and I'm already looking forward to the next pregnancy!

  3. 1 must be the lucky number...because like you it was everyday before IVF to once in October. Bam. I am still so happy for you...I have been telling everyone about it!

  4. That was one pretty dark HPT, so I'm feeling optimistic for you. Good luck next Thurs!

  5. Wow, I had so much to catch up on here on your blog! First, let me say that I'm thinking of you and hope that your appointment next week will be all good news.

    Emma has been growing SO MUCH. She is precious and has the prettiest eyes! I can't believe how much she changed since I last caught up with your posts. It makes me want to cherish every moment of the first year with my little girl even more. I know it will be gone in a flash.

    Love the new house, too! So happy for you!

  6. I am sure it feels different, but what a miracle! I cant wait to hear about your appointment! Thanks for mentioning me in your blog!!!! SSSSSOOOOO happy for you!

  7. Congratulations!! Found you from Kate's blog.

  8. Just catching up on Blogger and OMG I am so excited for you! You give me hope for the future. I would love one more. Can't wait to hear how everything goes. Good luck!
