So, I know the last update I had about me was about me hoping I was pregnant with my last IUI. Well, ended up NOT being pregnant, but what else would I expect? I mean it has not happened for all 7 IUI’s, why on earth would it happen then?
Already having two kids, certainly does not make trying to conceive any easier. Yes, I have two wonderful, BUSY little miracles, but why on earth can I not have ONE more? I have questioned God and everyone for a LONG time on this. I just did not understand why I was unable to have baby #3...
All of this stuff really takes a toll on someone, it really really does! TONS of emotions, tons. So, all of you people out there, that have been through infertility, or are going through it now, still, I will say a prayer for you. Stay STRONG.
Now, my update…
So, after the 7 IUI failed I was beyond devasted. Our insurance was up and we were going to have other insurance, but not as good. Me and hubby decided that that was our last attempt at trying, with medical assistance, to have another child. So yes, it was HARD. Very hard..
So, April we took off. I did not chart, I did not know when my most fertile days were going to be, I knew NOTHING. I had some left over Fertibella that I had given to my friend, and she became pregnant, so she gave me the remaining pills. So, I decided, what the heck, why not take ‘em..
I decided on a WHIM, to go and buy me some pregnancy tests, afterall it was a monthly ritual for me to buy about 10-50 a month anyways, so it would have felt WEIRD to not buy any. So, I bought me some.
I decided to take one the next day, and of course I had NEVER taken this particular brand before (it was the Answer Early Test STRIPS). After the time limit (10 minutes) there was a faint faint faint pink line… Mmmm.. kay? I took the rest of ‘em, (yep, sure did) and there were FAINT pink lines on ALL of them, but after the time limit, GRRR.
So, I did some research online about them and talked to some gals and everyone said that they take a while, like after the time limit to even show any line if you are pregnant. So, of course that made me SUPER curious. I remembered that e.p.t had recently sent me some digital pregnancy tests, but I had them buried because I KNEW I would never need them, EVER. So, I found them in my cupboard and decided to go ahead and pee on one, why not..
I went to tend to my kids and when I returned it was STILL showing that dreaded timer symbol. Then, all of a sudden “Pregnant” pops up. OMG. Are you flippin’ serious?! We barely had sex this month (TMI but TRUE…). NO medical help, no pills or shots? No way. No way.
So, I took another one, and SAME thing… Man, I was a bawling FOOL that night. I am PREGNANT. For now, right now, today, I am pregnant and that is all that I know. I am so happy, thrilled and beyond shocked. After three years of trying SO. Hard. Then this? LOL. Alright, I will take it!
My first appointment is on June 5th, and HOPEFULLY we will see a baby in my tummy. I have had 3 losses, so the first trimester is always ruined for me, in terms of being able to get too excited, but this one feels different, a GOOD healthy different I am happy So so happy!!!
Since finding out, I have been entering EVERY single baby giveaway on the net, and hoping I will win them all, LOL. I have also been searching the internet on great deals on baby products and finding Net voucher codes or any codes that will help me with buying baby clothes, gear and goodies and save me some money!
So, if you know of a great baby gear giveaway going on, please let me know of it! In fact, leave the link below so me and everyone can check them out! We are so excited for this new little one to join our family. It should be around the beginning of January, but if it is like my daughter probably middle of December OR I could be earlier since I was not charting so well anymore We shall see…
So, this is my update and we are GOOD!
But OBVIOUSLY my own words, LOL!
