Welcome new and returner readers!
It's still quite amazing to type: I'm pregnant.
I'm just 13 weeks and have started telling people at work, and my friends that we are expecting. I'm still a bit in shock and have moments of complete denial about this whole thing. It's joyous and scary all at the same time.
I have a long bullet list explaining our journey (see link above) to walk you through our 3 IVFs and 1 FET. It was only when we resorted to donor sperm and medicated IUI that we find ourselves pregnant.
When I was in my 20s I used to be very irritated by the "We're pregnant!" thing, but now I totally get it. Only our "we" encompasses a whole bunch of people: me, my husband, the sperm donor, our RE, the IUI coordinator, the on-call RE, the IVF lab, various people who have drawn my blood, then finally our OB and his crew, and a perinatal clinic. So, "We're pregnant!" says it all!
I want to leave you with what I did yesterday with my husband and a dear friend (no, not that! Get your mind out of the gutter!)
We went here and got to see these guys up close:
Did you know a group of giraffes are called a "Tower of Giraffes?"
Question: What have you done or seen lately that took your breath away?
