First Test

Okay so now I know why they tell you not to test before your “official” pregnancy test. Yesterday while I was out with my sister I decided to get a pregnancy test. I had been passing by these pregnancy tests for days and I couldn’t help but wonder if it was too soon. Well, per my doctor and most websites they say that you shouldn’t really test before because the HSG levels may be off because of all the medication that can still be in your system. You can either get a false positive or a false negative. I just wanted to see what the test would read if i took it. Well I came home and waited for *D* to get home and that test was just burning a hole in the bag that it was in. Deep breath. When he got home we talked a little about it and it was driving us both crazy… so I took it. Well as you can see we did not get the positive that we were expecting BUT we have not lost hope. Some women will have a negative even though they are pregnant so. Now the waiting is even more excruciating!! There is only three more days till the big test.


Two week wait!! I can honestly say that this has been the longest wait ever. Working has helped keep my mind off the doctors appointment. Oh I just can’t wait! Well today we celebrated my brother’s birthday happy 25th. *G* and his wife are expecting their very first baby this spring and we are thrilled. His birthday is actually on the 23 which is also *D* and my anniversary- we’ll be married for three years. I can’t belive that its already been three years, the years have flown by. And the 24th is the TEST!!! We’re praying that we can celebrate our anniversary with baby news 😀 Days till pregnancy test- 4 days

Shots shots and more shots

As part of my medication regimen I have been given the lovely task of taking Progesterone. For those of you who don’t know about this medication, it comes in oil first of all. And it’s an injectable, yes injectable. *D*, my wonderful hubby has been giving me these shots for the past six night and tonight… oh my it really stung-almost made me cry These shots must be given in the muscle just above where my pant pocket sits/or the upper booty and the needle is 1 1/2 inches long!!!! Here is a picture of that sucker. Days till “official pregnancy test” – 7

Life is definitely been exciting…

11/13/ 2010

At the advice of a very good friend of mine I find myself here at 10:10 pm thinking back on this beautiful journey that the Lord has allowed me and husband to travel on. On Wednesday November 10th 2010, *D* and I walked in to our doctors office in anticipation of what was about to happen, on this day I went in for an embryo transfer!!! One little single embryo patiently waiting on us to arrive 🙂 There was such a mix of emotions. I was nervous, scared and excited all at the same time. Today is the 13th and all I can think about is how this tiny person is growing inside of me. Days till “official pregnancy test”- 11
