My journey dealing with secondary infertility in this crazy fertile world.

So Far So Good!

Had my appointment yesterday. I would've written except for the fact that I fell asleep before 8 o clock on the couch and didn't get up till this morning. Probably due to losing so much sleep the previous nights due to stress about my appt. IT was such a relief to have confirmation that there is in fact a baby in my uterus. Teh doctor did an ultrasound and I wouldn't look at the screen until I asked if he saw a heartbeat. He did!

I am feeling so happy, but I can't lie. I am still stressed. Obviously the next 4 weeks will be long. My back is hurting very badly which I fear is a sign of miscarriage, but I am trying not to focus on it.

I am so thankful for all the prayers that I know that many of you have said for me. I am really appreciative.

I will write again when I am not soooo exhausted. It was quite a long day, but I wanted to give a quick update.

Hugs to all!

I was waiting for your update. So happy you saw the heartbeat. One milestone down.

Hey - in my first pregnancy, I had horrible cramps for the entire first trimester - both front and in my back. Hope that helps to see it is normal. :)

I had a dream last night that I started bleeding... I woke up thankful I wasn't...

It's horrible when the fears just take over and suck all the happiness out of a pregnancy :( I am trying to hard to be excited but some days, it's really hard.

We weren't planning on telling anyone until after we saw the heartbeat.. but... I have a big mouth, my kids over hear things, and they have big mouths too... and once Dennis got happy about it... I think he has the biggest mouth.. LOL...
