Just the Facts, Ma'am

5dp5dt poas +
8dp5dt poas +
11dp5dt HCG 548
13dp5dt HCG 1098

In plain English...it would appear that the IVF procedure has been successful. I am not quite ready to use the "p" word yet,  but I will say that one of the blasts has implanted.

We are, as you could imagine, thrilled and shocked. Infertility has been at the forefront of our lives for such a long time, particularly this past month when we have been reminded of it with every injection, every doctor's visit, every phone call and pill... it's really hard to absorb that our era of "infertility" might, just might, be behind us. We have gotten this far, and we will continue to put one foot gingerly in front of the other. 

My thoughts go out to those who will go on to struggle another month. Whatever the outcome, the struggle of infertility will always be a part of who I am.

August 28th we will go in for our first ultrasound. We will be 6 weeks at that time.

Congrats Sweetie. I am so happy that it worked for you. One of us deserved a happy beginning to a new chapter in life. Have a very happy and healthy 9 months and I wish you all the best.
