We decided to take a break from the workings of Trying to Conceive and ended up in Florida not once, but twice, for a total of 3 fantastic weeks. 1 week was with Tyler's sister and her girls and 1 week was with my brother and his wife and 1 week was us on our own, always loving the beach. We had a wonderful time. We celebrated 5 years married with a wonderful yacht ride on the ocean and even better food at one of our favorite spots. We tried to watch the Space Shuttle launch but failed twice.
In July, we headed back to our RE for more treatments. With the endo gone, we were confident that this would work. Life had different plans. Another failed transfer was behind us but I was ready to push onward. This year was going to be it for us. And it was. After IVF #5 (Fresh #3), we got our BFP on October 12th. For the first time in my life, I got to see a positive test and hear the wonderful words from my Nurse that I was actually pregnant. We waited out 2 betas to make sure the numbers were going our way and off we went to tell our parents and families. They were thrilled.
Time moved on and I became sicker and sicker, but it was all in jest. Weirdo me didn't mind puking, knowing that little Petri was just wreaking havoc on my system.
November came and went and now the end of December is upon us. I am 15 1/2 weeks along and looking forward to meeting our OB next week and finding out what Team Petri will be on at the end of January. Blue or Pink, we don't really care. Extra fingers or toes, I can even handle that. All we are wishing for this year is a healthy, happy baby in June. Our hopes and dreams have been answered and for that, I will be eternally grateful.
My thoughts are with the Women of my IF board who continue on with their journeys and I hope for them that 2010 can be a miraculous year. I wish you all the best and will be there rooting you on all the way. Lots of Love,
