Its been a long time coming......

Hi everyone....

Sorry its been so long since I have made a post. I know you all understand why I was away but I thank you for your patience.

I have still been reading all the blogs I follow everyday!!!

So, as you know...I went in May 20Th for my retrieval and May 25Th for my transfer. We transfered one "GORGEOUS" (as the doctor said) embryo - she said the middle which becomes the fetus was a B and the outside which becomes the placenta was an A....

So, of course, I started taking pregnancy tests 4dp5dt....and I am sure you have all guessed it by now but....

I'm Pregnant

We are soo happy!!! I know I was one of the lucky people to have been able to only do IVF once and become pregnant but after the 2.5 year battle I am so relieved. We even had 2 to freeze!!!

I am fortunate that I picked a wonderful doctor and they have been soo accommodating in letting me come every week and if not every other! The hear beat is nice and strong and has been from the beginning. The first u/s at 7 weeks was 156 and now its been 175-180 consistently!!! I rented a Doppler too and am able to hear the baby all the time!!!

I have to say it was funny at my 8 week...the u/s tech flipped a switch and showed us the baby on the 3D u/s and it literally looks just like the books say - like a little shrimp! So I have been calling her/him Shrimpy!

Anyway, that's all for now...Ill be back to posting, although I will understand if you don't want to read anymore since it will probably be about pregnancy sometimes but I hope you all still do. Forget to mention that I am currently 11 weeks.

You have all been my life line through this...when no one understood you all did and you have no idea how great that is!! Thanks!
