Good Morning to all of the wonderful ladies here!!
I know some of you think this is a bit weak, and I should have told you all straight away – but I am feeling so many emotions, I found that hard to do.
As I am typing this I am crying as you guys are the first people that I have told other than a few close, close friends! (two to be exact!)
Ok spit it out BREE! We are going to be a MUM & DAD! We are absolutely thrilled and can’t really believe it.
Before starting the Provera to bring on my AF, I decided that morning to do a HPT. Off to the chemist I went and the ladies that I know at the chemist laughed and said, didn’t you just come and get the clomid?? I told them it was just a precaution (just in case)
When we did the test that night I almost fell over in the shower – because 2 pink lines came up! (I used the new tests called Pregnosis) Warren told me not to get excited until I spoke to the doctor……Two days later I did another test and again the 2 pink lines!
Got in to see gyno that morning and he confirmed that I was 4 weeks and 4 days! He ordered a HCG and it was 893, I had another scan and blood test 2 days later and everything is where it should be. Our little miracle black dot on the screen is getting bigger and the HCG rose to 2110. (HCG is going up very high, very quickly and I am having bloods done every 2 days) I am up to about 12,000 and today I am 5 weeks and 5 days!!! THE GYNO THINKS ITS TWINS!!! OMG
This is truly a miracle as this was the un-medicated cycle after the Laparoscopy and growth removal.
We feel truly blessed, privileged and honoured to become parents…..We never thought that this would happen to us and feel that god has given us a chance. (I am still crying)
I am sure that you can imagine that we are still very frightened that things can happen, but at this stage – we are happy that it has happened! Warren is very protective and has been an absolute gem when it comes to being excited.
If this can happen to us – it will happen for you! I have grown so much from the experiences, journeys and knowledge that you have shared with me. Thank you.
I am going to post this in all the threads I am commenting on…….
My first reaction was not to post the news for a while, as many of you have had longer treatment than I, and have had so much more to deal with than I have. I feel for you all that are trying for the same thing – and just as hard….but I realise it is hard no matter when people share it.
We have decided that we won’t be telling any family members until 12 weeks or just past that! I am finding this difficult and I have lost so much weight and everyone is constantly looking me up and down! Oh well – I can’t wait to see my parents face! And Warren can’t wait to tell his best friends and family! It will be a long 6 ½ weeks but I am sure we will cope.
More tests and scans every two days and will know for sure if it is twins in a week or two. Got to wait for the heart beat’s to show up!!!!!!
I better get off here – I am now bawling my eyes out I have to go out for lunch soon!
I can’t thank you girls enough and look forward to sharing this journey with you all.
COME ON THE BFP’S!!!!!!!!!!!
All my love and friendship – BREE xxxoooxxxoooxxx
