After three and a half years of doctors, poking and prodding, medicines, failed medicines, IUIs, failed IUIs, and one successful round of IVF, we are pregnant. :)
We’re almost 17 weeks along, the peanut and I, and I waited to “announce” anything publicly for a couple of reasons. One, we wanted to be sure peanut was staying. I didn’t like the idea of posting before the first trimester was well over with. I know a some bloggers announced the second they had a positive pregnancy test but I wanted to be a bit more cautious. Which leads me to number two, I just didn’t/don’t want to have to come back here with sad news. There is of course the small chance that something could happen but so far, so good!
We’ve seen the heartbeat twice on ultrasound (at 7 and 9 weeks). We heard for the first time at 13 weeks. And I heard it again yesterday. Most beautiful sound!
