Positive Update — The Bump
TTC after 35

Positive Update

The other day I posted about how depressed I was.  3 BFN's in a row and I also was crazy emotional.  I want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to you ladies who really helped pick me up when I was down.  There are no words to describe how grateful I am for the support. I really needed it and you are all just amazing.

 Yesterday, with your help, I felt like I turned a corner.  I was still bummed but wasn't crying uncontrollably anymore.  I was exhausted from both this process and from work, but I actually felt like I was in a better mood, despite the BFN's and lack of symptoms.  Anyway I worked SUPER late last night and debated even stopping, but I bought another packet of PG tests.

Um, I just got a BFP. Still shaking and very, very nervous.  I've been down this road before so I just hope this LO sticks.  Stick, baby stick!
