An anxious wait...

Until Tuesday...afternoon, to be exact.

One more sonogram in the first trimester. If all is well, we can move on with our life and finally be "out" with our pregnancy. I have to say that it has been a very nerve-wracking few months, but just getting to this point is a huge accomplishment for us.

Since Katie is out of school and so am I, she will be joining us at the doctor's office on Tuesday. She keeps asking me why my tummy is so big (again - huge for only being the first trimester - I blame it on hormones and lovenox injections) and if there's a baby. So, we broke down a bit and told her that we didn't know. She knows we'll look at a tv at the doctor's office and that we may see a baby there (but then again, we've also told her we may not - we don't know.). I feel like it's too early to tell her anything, since she's three, but she's so darn perceptive and she picks up on everything. Since it's all my in-laws can talk about, she picks up bits and pieces and I think she already knows a lot more then she's letting on. So, I guess whether it's wise or not, she'll know something on Tuesday. And we'll know something on Tuesday.

Ready to be free of restrictions and down to only the daily injections. Ready to tell people...ready to shout it from the rooftops...but still scared. Don't think that's going to go away...

Just a couple more days...


  1. It's so very hard to relax after multiple losses, isn't it? I dealt with secondary infertility and ended up on lovenox in order to carry my third son to term. Hoping and praying that you have a wonderful ultrasound on Tuesday.

  2. Oh, relaxin' wont come easy. From the sound of it, Katie is already suspecting something.

    Hope you cross the first trimester effortlessly and all other milestones too. Good Luck!
