Thank you all so much for your comments over the last few days. It really means so much to me that so many of you have taken the time to leave your thoughts. I feel so loved and supported and blessed that I have you all in my life.

I'm still obsessively dipping sticks... Still can't quite believe that this is real, but the lines are getting darker and appearing faster and now it is starting to sink in a little that!

We've told a couple of very close friends, but haven't decided yet when we're going to tell the families. When we've discussed this in the past, we've always said that we would wait until we were past the first trimester. Now that we're here, we're having trouble picturing keeping the news to ourselves for over two more months. If it weren't for M, we'd probably have spread the news already, but we don't want to tell the families until we tell her, and we don't want to tell her until we've at least seen/heard the heartbeat. At the same time, we don't want to wait until everyone has figured it out on their own - which could happen quickly because my uterus seems eager to rapidly increase in size - so far it's only noticeable to me, but I don't think it'll stay that way for long.

I've been really surprised by how quickly the symptoms have come on. R has been laughing at me, because I've been so happy to have heartburn, nausea, "dog nose", and exhaustion. The only symptom that isn't making me smile is the bb tenderness and size increase. I'm already busting out of my bras, and the texture of the fabric of my favorite bra is driving me batty. Good excuse to go shopping though!


  1. I think I agree with your decision to wait, although I can only imagine how hard that would be. As for the sore boobs, man, mine have been tender for a number of days now (which is unusual for me) and it is really not pleasant. I'm just gonna have to chalk this cycle up as WEIRD and move on!! So happy for you darling and really looking forward to posts about symptoms and ultrasounds and your compulsions to buy baby clothes!!

  2. Hey, it makes for a good excuse for some new undergarments, right?

  3. So happy for you!!! Have fun bra shopping for your extra special sized boobs!

  4. This is such wonderful news! I'm glad that Round 1 of Clomid was such a success.

    Everybody says having bigger boobs is the best part of pregnancy, but I don't like not fitting into my tops before I even start showing!

  5. :)

    I only got the sore boobies from 8DPO to 14 DPO. Then nada. Symptom free!

    It caused me no end of grief messing with the pee sticks past their intended function.

    Ironically enough, I'm thinking of not even using them in this IVF cycle, even though it's the first realistic chance at pregnancy for me in, well, forever.


  6. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!
    I've been so busy I missed this!

    I'm sooooooo excited... I don't know if I can keep it in....

    I might have to tell someone.
    Is that ok??

    You're PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!


  7. We're totally having the same dilemma about telling people! And in what order to tell them...
    We want to be excited about this (them?!?), but it's hard when we're still scared.
    Keep us posted!

  8. So, so happy for you! Revel, girl, revel!!

  9. I AM GEEKED FOR YOU...although I have only gotten this far in your blog so I hope it keeps being good news otherwise I am going to feel like a real @$$!

    You have given me...wait for it....HOPE that Clomid can work for me too!
