i'm pretty sure we'd still be waiting. but now we've got good eggs.
i promised hubby that i wouldn't do a HPT but i couldn't help myself. i really had to know. for better or for worse. i snuck into the bathroom first thing in the morning while hubby was downstairs in the garage……i prayed so hard, with my eyes closed, waiting until the test finished. i cried when i read it…a sobbing cry that came from years of disappointment and finally overcoming what felt like the impossible.
after almost 6 years trying to conceive,
we are finally pregnant and couldn't be happier.
beta #1 - HCG 780
beta #2 - HCG 1591
our clinic wanted my first beta over 100 and the second one to double. for once, i have high numbers at something. it feels so weird. i know we are not out of the woods yet. but i have so much faith in this pregnancy. even though, it still feels very surreal...like a wonderful dream that i hope i never wake up from.
thank you from the bottom of my heart for following our journey, cheering for us, crying with us and praying for this baby. i don't know where i'd be without this community and the support we've received from of all of our friends and family. we are truly blessed despite all of our struggles over the last half a decade.
we are so anxious but excited for the next 9 months and hope baby sunshine is here to stay.
of course, i'd be remiss if i didn't mention k in this post.
we wouldn't be here without her. thank you, k.
in my next post,
i will share our letter and gift to our beautiful donor.
