Due date? Jan 6th
How did you find
out? We’ve been trying for
a while so I was testing early like I always do. Honestly didn’t expect to see
it. I’m still in shock. I haven’t even told MH yet. Lines are still super super
Tell us about yourself
(Other children/pets?Job? Things you like to do? Spouse/partner?) Hi! I’m LJ, and I’m from the mid-west. MH and
I have been married for 5 years and we have a son who’s 18 months. I work for a
university doing research in nano technology and MH is a lead operator/first
responder/firefighter for a large company. We love to be outside, camping,
hiking, kayaking. We have a camper and are thinking about buying some land to
park it on soon. Then build a cabin in a few years. We also love to travel and
explore new places!
How are you feeling?
(First appointment? Any symptoms? Emotionally?) It took us nearly 2 years and infertility
treatment to conceive our son. This time, we’ve been trying since Nov/Dec last
year. We did a few cycles of Letrozole and TI, then I decided I needed to take
a break, mostly for my mental health. And I knew we were ready to move on to
the RE to do another IUI. So this month we were on a break. Not really tracking
like I usually do, but not preventing either. Yesterday we both went for some
required blood work we needed done before we could start the IUI cycle and I
decided to pick up my meds for the IUI too. I got home and that afternoon I
turned a test! I’m so incredibly nervous because the test is such a squinter,
but the line is there. I of course tested again today and the line is MAYBE a
little darker. Not much though so I’m still holding my breath. I didn’t do
anything special to announce my first pregnancy, so I decided I wanted to for
this one. I ordered a cute brother bear shirt that I’ll put my son in and we’ll
see how long it takes MH to notice lol. Should be here on Thursday!
So excited to meet you
all! I was part of the Sept ’19 group and made some incredible bonds with those
ladies. Can’t wait to do the same with you all!
@lisa3379 Hey girl! So happy to see you here! Congrats! I
know I kinda just dropped off of TTGP. I just really needed to for my mental
health. I’m trying to kick my caffeine habit until at least the first trimester
is over. Today has been a struggle with my decaf lol.
