BFP

I couldn't just leave it at that, now could I? 

So, it's early (very early) but we figured there was no harm in sharing our good news on the blog as few people who know us in real life know about this blog.  We'll try to wait the customary 12 weeks before telling most family and friends.  I also know that if anything happens I'll appreciate being able to "talk" about it on here.  

I didn't really feel prepared to blog about the TTC process this time around.  Nothing out of the ordinary, I just didn't want to focus any more of my attention on it than I already was.  Let's be serious, when you're going through this it is difficult to think of anything else.  I also didn't know how I would feel sharing about another BFN.  Everyone here was so sympathetic back in January, but I wasn't sure how I'd feel about that month after month. 

In addition to all of that, we've been pretty busy and tired the past few weeks and I didn't really have it in me to blog at all, no matter what the subject.  We had a week where The Bean was up in the wee hours of the morning, with what we suspect was teething pain.  (He has since popped two or maybe even three teeth  --he won't let us get a good look.)  Jen's parents came for a wonderful visit last weekend.  I had my final yearbook deadline and lots of difficulties getting the pages completed and edited.  I also started an online Additional Qualification course, hoping that it will help with job prospects.  So lots to keep us busy, but not very interesting blog fodder for the post part.   

The whole process was fairly uneventful.  Blood work and ultrasounds on Day 3 and then from Day 10 on.  The IUI was on Day 15 which I thought was late, but the lab work indicated was PERFECT timing.  And I guess it was.  The same doctor who did the insemination when Jen got pregnant with The Bean did my insemination this time.  I did some acupuncture seven days post IUI to help with implantation (increases blood flow).  Anyway, it seems that it all worked out. 

The photo earlier was from our first HPT, taken this morning.  I waited to take the photo (since I took the test at 5am) so the line isn't as clear as it was initially.  I took it back into the bedroom with a flashlight to have Jen look and confirm what I was seeing.  Of course, I wasn't able to fall back asleep after that.  I'll do another HPT tomorrow morning.  Tuesday is the follow up blood work at the clinic, and if that comes back positive they'll do second batch of blood work on Thursday to confirm. 


I know it's early.  I know things could change.  The test could be wrong.  But I'm still so excited. 

There's a baby in there.
