I’ve been keeping a secret. At first I was waiting until I had more information to tell you, then I was just waiting for time to post, eventually I realized I was waiting to find the right words.
Here it goes.
|LOL! I guess I'm a year behind. It should say 9/15/11!|
Here’s how that came about… AF was late but that was no surprise because I haven’t been regular since having the baby. Since my cycles haven’t been regular I haven’t been able to track ovulation. We’ve just been going with it and enjoying “time” when we want to rather than when the calendar tells us to (imagine that!)
The hubs and I have been enjoying a glass of wine with dinner almost every night. I ordered some cheapo pregnancy tests online (you know, just in case) and when they got here last Thursday, he told me to test. I agreed so I could have my nightly wine! It was the first time I’d tested and knew it would be negative and was okay with that. I remember thinking to myself “watch, this will be the first time it’s actually positive!” Imagine my shock when it was! No seriously…SHOCK!!! I immediately took a second test. Same result. Holy sh!t!!!
I hand them to the hubs and he says “I don’t know what that means. I don’t know how to read those.” LMAO!
Fast forward, send the hubs down to the store for “real tests” (aka the expensive ones!) They had the same result…
We had our first ultrasound September 22nd. Based on my LMP (8/7) I should’ve been 6w4d. Unfortunately, the ultrasound showed a tiny dot with no heartbeat. RE said that he thought I just ovulated late and I wasn’t far enough along for a heartbeat. I was measuring roughly 5 ½ weeks along so I had to wait a week and a half for another ultrasound.
I prayed (and had many others praying with me) that I did just ovulate late and there would be a heartbeat.
We had our second ultrasound Saturday and my fears were put to rest…a heartbeat! 100bpm measuring 6w4d. So based on that, I ovulated about nine days late (cd23.) We'll have another u/s in two weeks to check up on everything before I'll see my regular ob/gyn.
Infertility led us down the IUI/IVF path and brought us our perfect angel, Gavin this year.
But a miracle has brought us this sweet baby blob…
As you can imagine, we are ecstatic! I'm still in shock!!!
