Wow, I still can hardly believe it. After 26 months, we are finally lucky enough to get a BFP. It is finally our turn. Finally.
I woke up yesterday and POAS first thing. When the 3 minutes were up I grabbed the stick and was careful to cover the result. I was so nervous (so much so that constipation was definitely not a problem yesterday). My husband and I held hands said a few words – which I think included “it is what it is” and “I hope this worked” and “I love you”. Then I slowly moved my hand so we could read the result. In that moment we both crumbled. We hugged and sobbed and hugged and sobbed. What an amazing, priceless moment.
I’m really looking forward to the beta tomorrow. (I’ve never looked forward to a beta before.) Getting the official “yep, you’re definitely pregnant” from my RE will somehow make it even more real. The line is getting darker and that makes me happy.
For those of you waiting to get your BFP, here’s a little about symptoms. I basically had none. Nothing besides sore boobs (which I have right before AF every cycle; PIO could also be the culprit) and exhaustion (again PIO could be the culprit). I’ve been feeling a few things since Saturday, but nothing too different from AF cramps. Yesterday and today there have also been a few weird twinges or pulling feelings, but essentially I feel normal (or like AF is coming). I guess I had it in my mind that you’d feel pregnant right away. Silly me.
So how did we get here? Was it the positive attitude? Or the well wishes from all of you? Was it because we made it to the top of my MIL’s prayer list? Or the acupuncture? Was it the bed rest? Maybe it was the awesome care taking by my loving husband? Or the pomegranate juice? Or maybe the pineapple? I believe it was all of the above. I’m profoundly grateful.
Fingers crossed for tomorrow.
