The reason for the silence

Embryo #2

After sharing my whole IVF journey with you (well the less disgusting version) I suddenly went quiet. I have had a couple of emails asking whats up so I thought I would let you know…I am indeed pregnant! It’s very early days so I don’t plan to say anything more about it on here for a while (I have plenty of other stuff to blather about in the meantime though) but my blood tests have all come back showing good results. My first scan is at the end of next week and we will get to hopefully hear a little heartbeat. Oh my. I am holding my breath every minute of every day that nothing goes wrong before then but suffice to say the fear is balanced with the joy.Β  There is only one problem – I found out at 3.5 weeks. This is going to feel like the worlds longest pregnancy.

PS – How cool is it to have a photo of our baby at cellular level?

PPS – I will be back with baby knits and stuff as soon as I stop wanting to fall asleep.

    Wonderful news, Steph, and I love the photo =).

    Isn’t that overwhelming need to sleep the craziest thing?!! I remember getting home from work every day and immediately falling asleep on the couch. My hubby would cook dinner, wake me up so I could eat, then I’d be back in bed for the night not long afterwards. It was the most 100%-out-of-my-control feeling that impacted me in such a physical way that I’d ever experienced up until that point.

    Grow, baby, grow!!

  13. Awwwww, that’s the sweetest little bundle of cells I’ve ever seen! Wishing you nothing but joy!
