I’ve debated for many weeks on when to post to my blog that I’m having my first child. I don’t want readers to worry that the blog will die. I’m figuring out a plan that will carry it through my pregnancy and the first few weeks of my baby’s arrival. Right now, I’m able to fill a month of posts at the end of the previous month. What will that be like in the months to come? And, how easily will I be able to continue between feedings and diapers and naps? I’m sure I’ll get lots of help from family and Sadie Sue. So, no worries!
It’s been a long road to get here. Every IVF journey is different for every woman, just as every pregnancy is different. My pregnancy is the result of 4 failed IUIs, followed by three egg-retrievals that resulted in only one healthy embryo. The chances that this single embryo implanted in my uterus were slim to none, yet, it did! I’ve been cautious regardless. And now at 23 weeks, I feel a bit more comfortable letting the public know.
My family is very excited to welcome a new baby. I look forward to being a parent, as I always hoped to be one. Miss Sue can’t wait to have a new buddy to play with.
