Double Bubble.

I always liked double bubble bubble gum. Mmmmmm. But the thing I like most right now is ... DOUBLING BETA NUMBERS!!!!

My little lowly beta of 15 is now up to 43. I couldn't be happier right now.

I am pregnant. Holy crap. I never thought I'd be saying those words again.

The only thing I am bummed about right now is I'll be losing many of my readers. But hey that's okay if that is what they need to do. Even I admitted that I stopped reading (okay, I still read, I just stopped commenting) all of the pregnancy blogs while I was going around and around on this infertility merry go round. It's fucking hard to read about someone's pregnancy, especially when you are in the throws of treatment. I ~hope~ everyone continues to read me, but if you don't, I'll understand. I can't expect others to do something I couldn't do myself!

This is my 3rd pregnancy though. So this won't turn into an overflowing with pregnancy stuff. I will talk about things, sure. But I think I'm over the fact my boobs will get bigger. Or my shopping day for maternity clothes. It will probably be more of a bitch fest about getting fat, as I'm an early shower to begin with and I can only imagine with #3 will do to me. I'm still going to be sarcastic as all hell and I'll probably revert back into my musings of daily life. So if you want, stick with me, will ya?

~~~

I did want to take a moment to thank the hell out of you all. 80 comments on my BFP post? Holy shit. Really? And I'll tell you, it was thrilling! So thank you.

And thank you for supporting me when I jumped the gun and thought my cycle was over. Here I was, crying in my bowl of Capt'n Crunch and you girls couldn't of been nicer. You were all completely genuine - I knew that so many of you really cared about me. It wasn't fake - it was real. And I felt it from you girls. I felt this love through your words. Overwhelming I tell you. Overwhelming.

And then here I was, 2 days later, changing my story to get congratulations sent my way. What a big jerk I am! But really, I didn't know. I honestly thought it was over. (yeah yeah, all you anti poas-ers can give me all the "I told you so!!!" comments you want. ~wink~). So, I must eat my words. But I have to admit, this is the best plate of crow I've ever had in my life.

Thank you. Thank all of you for being so fucking awesome. (except those anons who are fucking bitches. ~smile~.)

Congratulations Nancy! I "know" you from WebMD (I was pregnant with my little guy when you were pregnant with Allison). I've been following your story and I couldn't be more happy for you! H&H 9 months!

Congrats on the doubling, that's great, really. And I'll still be reading, just maybe not commenting as much for a bit cuz well, you know, that's how it goes here. Still be reading though, for sure:-)

Congrats Nancy. May you have an easy and gentle 36 more weeks.

Sarah R said...

Woohoo! I knew it would at least double. I cannot WAIT for the belly pics to begin! :)

We all love ya, Nancy. You are just so "stalkable"... :)

BTW, you were the very first one to congratulate me on my BFP, way back on 12/24/06 on the JSO board. I still remember that day very well--so exciting! There is so much for you to look forward to and I know you'll love everything (even the morning sickness), especially since it took so long for you to finally get here!

Jewels said...

LMAO,
I Told You So!!!

Well, no I didnt, but I wanted to say that anyway. How fun and what a sweet post. I'm so glad this is your post for May 19, 2008, It could have been a very different post, something in regards to "New cycle, new hope, shots, ultrasounds, crying" but its this, and I'm so glad.

Maryanne said...

AWESOME! I, too, have checked all day waiting for this post! I'm so glad your numbers went up! Do you have to go in again in a few days for another reading or are you done now until your "normal" OB appointments start?

Kim said...

Congratulations!

JamieD said...

Congratulations, Nancy!! I have had a crazy day today and all I could think about was, "I have GOT to get home and check Nancy's blog!"

I am already looking forward to your blogging future - Pregnant and Sarcastic.

. said...

I have been reading your story ever since I came back to webmd and i must say, You had some crazy ups and downs. But you are a lady that I truly respect because of all that you have been through in your life. I dont comment much...actually hardly ever...but I wanted to say congratulations from the bottom of my heart. And I hope you have a fantastic pregnancy. You deserve it! :)

Yay!Yay!Yay!!!!! I am over the moon thrilled to see this post! I am so happy for you & excited to hear about the next milestones (well- as excited as I can be somedays- you know- but today isn't one of ~those~ days)

Have you thought of a nickname? Or are you waiting for the first u/s?

Denise said...

So this means you won't desert me now, right? Yeah, I know. It's all about me. I'm so excited to have another ColoBlogger preggo buddy!

Our family is complete said...

Nancy I couldn't be happier for you. I know what a rollercoaster ride you have been on. I have been reading and following from day one. I didn't always post because I have never dealth with IF and didn't think it was right for me to say it will be o.k. I just kept praying that you would get your BFP and you did. I wish you a happy and healthy 9 mo. I am going to continue to stalk and read about your pregnancy and can't wait to see the little beano. Congrats again.

Doubling betas means that you're moving categories on my blogroll, woman! No more "Still searching" for you, you're on to "Finding the promised land"! I'm honestly, genuinely thrilled for you.

And you know that it'd take a lot more than a little thing like getting knocked up to make me stop reading. Commenting may be rough on any especially shitty days of my own, but that's nothing that you don't already know about me.

And can you even imagine how hard I am biting my tongue right now with the whole poas obsession? Opposite sides of that coin we are, but I will continue to gnaw on my tongue... Can you pass me a tissue tho? I think I taste blood. (wink)

I bet you've had a thousand hits today with everyone coming to check!! Congrats! Let this be the beginning of a WONDERFUL journey with 3 children!

Jenera said...

woo hoo!!! I've been a nervous wreck all day waiting to see your numbers. Now I have someone to be preggo with!

Agata said...

Yes, yes, yes, yes!!! I knew it!!! I am so happy right now, this totally made my night! Lots of love to you and little bean(s) - however many there are!

Poltzie said...

THis is wonderful news! I am thrilled for you :)
History has shown that while you have trouble getting pregnant you have no trouble staying that way and I'm excited to read all about your next nine months!
Cheers to you and your little bean :)

I have never been so happy for someone I have never met. Congrats! Your story is a cool one and very inspirational to those who may feel like giving up. I wish you the best of luck with this pregnancy!

TwoAngelsMom said...

NANCY!!!!! I am so happy for you! I can't wait to stalk your blog and see that beautiful baby at the end. Complain all you want....you deserve it honey!!!!! So, how did Tom and the girls react????

Duck said...

Nancy Nancy, You and Denise have given me hope, so much hope.
Now I have to change you to my knocked up list (I still visit and most of the times post on my knocked up blogs)...
Congrats again.

Anyways, I never really comment but I have kept up with your blogs and I am really excited that you finally got that BFP!! My heart is truly happy for you right now!! I hope you have a happy 9 months. I know you will enjoy every minute of it! If you are curious who I am my blog is http://lamoreauxfamily.blogspot.com

Congrats Nancy!! That's awesome!! H&H 9 months!!

Miriam said...

Hi Nancy!
I've never talked to you before, but I used to read you all the time on the TTC boards about a year ago. I really look forward to seeing what you have to say about things, treatments, life, etc. I'm 36 weeks with my 3rd, after a year of fertility treatments again, and I was sitting on pins and needles yesterday waiting to see what your beta did. I'm so happy for you, I've cried along with the other girls the last several months and now I'm jumping up and down with them (well, as best I can with my huge belly). All the best to you, and don't change a bit, no matter what "all those other girls" comment to/about you. I think it's awesome that you say what's on your mind and to hell with what people think.
Congrats!!!

**susy** said...

Yay you're pregnant! I think its awesome! I'll stick around even after a bfp. ;)

Pink-CJ said...

Ha! Congrats!! I got about 10 people at best reading my blog so you are very popular!!I just got my beta last Thursday and then on Saturday and I am pregnant too! So I'll be following your blog :) Please check out mine!

Congratulations Nancy!
I've been following your story since the JSO boards on Webmd and I couldn't be happier for you! You actually have given me hope that one day it will happen for me as well.
Enjoy this pregnancy!
