It’s Positive!!!!

After two years and two months, we are finally pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And would you believe it?  We probably conceived the day or two before we had our first appointment with the new OB to look at starting IVF.  Incredible!  We were already pregnant when we were talking to him about our options!  D can’t wait to see him next appointment and tell him that we don’t need him for IVF anymore!

It’s a wonderful story about how we found out.

It was our 3 year anniversary and we had booked a dinner at a wonderful restaurant.  I hadn’t been drinking since my last ovulation.  I was late for my period.  And I wanted to do a pregnancy test to see where we were at and whether I could have a drink at our special occasion.

I went to the toilet, expecting the usual result.  D said I took forever to come out and he was starting to wonder what was going on.  He was expecting the usual result as well and was just getting ready to go out.  But when I took a while he came up to the toilet and waited around the corner.

I came out looking at the test with a confused dumbfounded look on my face and staring intently at the result.  He gave me such a fright because he was hiding around the corner! 

I took another look at the test and then passed it to him silently with a shocked look on my face.  He took the test along with the instructions and stood there comparing the two.  And then looked up at me with the same shock! 

Oh my God!!  We are pregnant!  And it hit home.  We are pregnant!!!!!  It’s positive!!!!


Needless to say, I did not have anything to drink at dinner.  Nor could we both stop smiling!

What a wonderful anniversary present!  We couldn’t have asked for a better time to have found out.  Just as we were going out to celebrate our time together.

I did another test the next morning.  It was still positive!

Then went to the doctor.

That test was inconclusive.  OH NO!   But she sent me off for a blood test.  And the next day those results came in positive as well.  It was a terrible waiting time though!  And a scary phone call to make.  I had to check with her three times that she said the test result was positive.

So the new journey begins.  We are so excited.  We are aware of the need to get safely through the first trimester and what we need to do and not do.  But any concerns are mostly over taken by the pure excitement and joy we feel.

After 26 months, we are growing our baby!!!!
