I wasn't expecting to see 2 lines at all. In fact, I took the test, forgot about it, did the dishes, put P to bed and came back half an hour later to 2 lines! But you're not supposed to read them after 10 minutes because the results may be inaccurate. I told my husband that the universe was playing a horribly sick and cruel joke on me but I couldn't help getting excited!
I ran to the store at 8pm that night, Thursday January 19th (a month after P's 4th birthday), brought as many tests as I could, 2 pints of ice cream (to celebrate or commiserate with) and hurried home
There was no mistaking this one!
DH was sitting on the couch working or watching TV and I came up behind him. All I can remember saying is 'there's no not, THERE'S NO NOT!! I think I'm going to pass out'. I was shaking but so so happy.
Morning sickness hit at 5 1/2 weeks or so. Nothing too bad, it's not sending me to the bathroom or anything but it is certainly unpleasant to be me right now. And I am enjoying every second of it!
We had our first ultrasound yesterday at 6 weeks and 6 days. We immediately saw our little one in there, happy and wiggly, arm and leg buds developing, measuring at roughly 6 weeks 4 days, heart beating away at 136 bpm, a nice healthy heart rate (P's was 122 at the same gestation)
I am 7 weeks today. We know it's still early but we are hopeful and too excited to keep it a secret. We have waited far too long for this to not yell it from every roof top, window and mountain we can find. It makes me cry to think about just how fortunate I feel right now.
I'm crossing #6 off our 2012 goals list. Take THAT infertility!!
