A cautious intro — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

A cautious intro

Hello ladies,

I have been lurking here the last few days trying to get up the courage to intro. I got my 2nd beta today and it was reassuring enough that I decided to just go for it!

Hi, I'm BlueJell0. Been TTC since August '12, and I have one CP under my belt, so I know the universe doesn't owe me anything - but today I am pregnant and I love my baby. I have also been lurking the Oct 14 BMB and it is full of ladies who tried for 1 month or had an 'oops' or already have like 3 kids. I don't begrudge them any of that but I'm not ready to be among them yet! Looking forward to getting to know you all over the next 36 weeks or so!

  • BlueJell0, I felt the same way - I was on a different board for IF and it was great, but when I got my BFP and went to my BMB on that site, it was awful.  And they didn't have anything like PAIF, so I googled until I found this and I am so glad I did!  Welcome aboard and FX for a sticky bean!
