On a happier note...

This happened!!!!!!!!

We transferred (FET) 2 healthy embryos into J on April 6th and I got a text from her on Friday saying 'babe, I think I am' (6 days post transfer). I asked if she wanted to POAS and she said no, so I let it go. But by the time I got home she had changed her mind. I waited for the results while she played with N and in no time at all that magical word appeared. N told me off for 'shouting' as I ran to find them. Lol!

Saturday morning I'm in the bathroom with N and the test was on the counter. He picked it up and our conversation went like this -

N: mama, what's this?
Me: ummm, that is a special stick that tells us something about Mommy's body.
N: it can't tell you anything. It doesn't have a mouth, so no voice (as he pulls the cap off).
Me: ah, don't take that off, you are right. It doesn't tell us anything by talking. But see this word, that tells us something about Mommy's body.
N: oh.

We aren't telling him at this point. In fact we aren't telling anyone and haven't shared that we are even TTC at all. People frequently ask what, when or if we are going to have a baby and we say things like we hope to, would like to, maybe next year....anything to get them off the subject.
It's exactly a year since our 2nd mc and even though not many people knew last time we don't want to have to go through telling people again. We are only sharing here because I REALLY, REALLY wanted to (thanks babe!) I'm holding the faith right now and would love it if you guys could send lots of sticky baby dust our way. We are cautiously excited but more than a little terrified....Amanda I'm borrowing your saying a lot ;-) If you know us IRL please don't say anything. We plan to keep it quiet as long as we can, at least until we reach the 2nd trimester and if I know J, longer if she can get away with it!!

I think our EDD is December 22nd but as it will be a repeat section I expect that it will happen a little earlier. He/she/they(?!) will be the perfect early Christmas present :-)


  1. Yay!!! Got a feeling if it's one or two??

    1. Thanks. From the betas we think its one, but will know for sure next week!

  2. OMG! OMG! OMG!!!!!! I kept having this STRONG feeling that I was going to pop in here one day soon and see THIS!!! Borrow my saying all you want and I will say it for you as well ;)

    I am so completely exited for you both! Tell J to kick back and relax, as much as possible, and cook those eggs good! PS-December babies are awesome...just look at Little Monster :)

  3. Woooohooooo!!! Love this many many congrats and sloppy kisses :)

  5. Fantastic news! Congrats! Hopefully there are two sticky little beans - twins are awesome ;)

    1. Thanks.
      As a twin I have mixed feelings about having them but we will be thrilled and blessed with what we get.

  6. Yay, yay, yay! I've been off the grid for the past 2 weeks so I was SUPER excited to return to this great news! I will send all the positives thoughts and sticky vibes possible your way. :)
