I'm like the boy who cried wolf.

Seriously.

Me: "It's over. I'm so sad. Support me!"
You all gave me huge support.

Me: "I got a bfp! Forget the tears, I'm happy now!"
You all gave me huge support.

Me: "I think it's ectopic"
You all gave me huge support.

Me: "The doctors now think it's ectopic"
You all gave me huge support.

And now, I have a growing baby ~inside~ my uterus. I'd like to introduce you to my little peapod:

Quality sucks since I don't have scanner here, but I didn't want to skip the photographic evidence! Something that caught my eye today too - my clinic has me at 6weeks, but I am only 5w4d. So that added onto them thinking ectopic because they calculated from LMP, but I calculated from "ovulation". That made the numbers a little worse than they were.

But who cares now, right?

Quick little story ... I was in stirrups, hubby wasn't there yet. They asked if I wanted to wait, but I was so nervous, I just said to go for it. The doc sticks the monkey wand in and says "I see a sac!" and I immediately ask "WHERE?". He points to the screen and says "It's right here. Can't you see this?" And I'm like "Yes, I see the sac, but where is it in my body???" He laughs and says "Oh! Yeah, this is your uterus. Congratulations, let's get a picture for mommy" and he printed out the image I pasted above.

I have made it past a lot of those hurdles and I couldn't be more thrilled. The next hurdle is the heartbeat appointment, which is scheduled for next Friday. Even though they had me at 6w today, they agreed we should wait a few more days to make sure it's late enough for a heartbeat due to the late implantation.

Girls, this is the biggie here ....
Thank you for being here for me. Thank you for cheering me on the ups and hugging me on the downs. I can't tell you how much your comments helped. I know you've all seen people thanking their readers, but I want to hit this one home to you all. Your comments got me through VERY bad days. You girls were my prozac. You girls are what gave me hope. See, I'm a "plan for the worst and if the best happens, it'll be a good surprise" which you already know about me. But when I'm planning for the worst, it's very hard to see that there can still be hope. You girls were my hope. And I appreciate that more than you could ever imagine.

YES!!! Oh thank goodness - I am so happy for you! It's still unfair that you had to go through so much hell beforehand, (you've endured enough, for crying out loud!) but this is such GREAT news!!

If any of the people who tried to invalidate your very *valid* fears concerns, now say 'see, I told you it would be ok!' I hereby send them a virtual slap!

Wordgirl said...

HHAAA!

NANCY.

I logged on last night and read your comment and my brain stalled...I was like $#%...and then I went to sleep and mid-way through the night the dog woke me up and I thought...what was the other book...MICROSERFS...am I right?

I am now blanking on the name of another book you'd love if you haven't read it already...William Gibson (I've been sitting here for five minutes and it just came back to me)...shit...(my brain is like a very inefficient slow old model computer)...he invented the term 'matrix' in this book...damn it...NEUROMANCER.

Christ, that was painful. I'm only 36 why is my brain so sluggish? I'm blaming the Femara.

Hi Nancy, You asked a q about the lining, yup it's my lining, 5mm on the right side, 2ish on the left, so a week more of estrogen and hopefully I will get up to a 6 or a 7.

Anonymous said...

WOOT! You're totally pregs! There's a little baby in there! I honestly knew in my heart that everything would be okay and your little bean would be safely implanted in your womb. This is so amazing. I know you will cherish every moment of this pregnancy--as will I and I don't even "know" you.

I'm sure Tom is thrilled, but could you tell us how he is reacting to all this. And when do you tell the girls?

BIG HUGS,
Shawn

So now that you are all pregnant and stuff I want to know all about how it feels.
I want to know exactly what you thought when you saw the pregnancy test was positive and I want to know what you felt when the doc told you it was all good.
I also want to know what your hubby thought when he found out.
After all your struggles and set backs to get pregnant I am dying to know what your success feels like!

Congrats on the pg. Congrats on location of said pg. Ectopic - been there, done that. Glad you are not there.

Best wishes for a very boring and uneventful pg with a nice fat screaming bonus at the end of it!
