9dp3dt – DE – It’s a Sprog!

Yep.  Got a positive, and while I wouldn’t call it a dark line, it’s an unequivocal line, which is all I care about.  Here it is again, for anyone who didn’t read my Days of Grace post:

And I’m still feeling all zen-like and dreamy, because this has been the mellowest cycle for me so far.  Removing the pressure of relying on my less-than-ok eggs has meant that I feel, well, confidant about this whole reproduction process.  I’m pregnant.  With a baby.  Chances are very damned good that I’m going to walk out of here in September with a real, live baby.

A baby.

I’m going to have a baby.

And, some heartfelt pleading here – if you’d like to make today even happier than it already is for me, delurk & say hello.  I’m as bad as the next person about always saying ‘hey’, especially when I’m reading from my GoogleReader, but it would mean the world to me today, to hear from folks I’ve never ‘met’ before.  (I’d also love to hear from my wonderful always-there-for-me readers, obviously!!!)

Going to go practice flying, now.  And grinning like a maniac.  And laughing for no very good reason at all.  Going to go wear something the color of hope.  Going to officially put the coffee maker away.   Going to buy pregnancy apps and pregnancy meditation tapes and maybe something adorable and pastel and frivolous.  And when (if) I come down from over the moon?  I’ll let you know.  Don’t wait up.

    De-lurking to say woohoo! Congratulations! Here’s hoping you have a nice strong beta and an uneventful and happy pregnancy.

  • WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO YES, YES, YES, YES – I am so, so happy for you! That is incredible news!!!!! I saw this at work and almost cried – I was on the phone with the department of revenue discussing bul.k sa.les…and I got goosebumps and I am so happy.

  • Congratulations, Sprog!!!!! SO happy for you.

    Don’t think I have posted before, but have surely been reading and rooting and AM ELATED by today’s news!!!! Wish I could say something more eloquent and inspiring at such a moment as this. But let my awed rambling convey my heartfelt joy at today’s news. I feel like you are at the part where the eagle has picked you up after the exhausting and epic journey to Mt. Doom. And now all the joyful celebration can ensue. (I watched LOTR all through my IVFs and likened all their struggles and heartaches to the whole ups and downs of it all but kept hoping I’d get that happy ending too. Am hoping anyone about to embark on a Director’s cut marathon will enjoy the reference.)

    Just too happy to be coherent. But you asked for your readers to delurk and delurk I have.

    So happy. Just so very, very happy!

  • Sarah

    Delurking and offering congrats!

  • Lurker here!! I lurk a lot on IF/RPL and pregnancy/parenting-after-IF/RPL blogs, but I rarely comment because I’m nowhere near these things (I’m 18 and don’t want kids).

    That said … a huge, huge congrats … especially as you seem to feel so much more comfortable with the donor eggs.


  • Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    YAY!!! So VERY happy for you! Great start to 2010, roll on an amazing year for you in which you have a healthy, happy pregnancy and become a mum! I KNEW this one would work…. !

  • I am so dead chuffed to pop on over to sprog-ville and see evidence of a sproglet.

    Also, that’s actaully a damn better line than I had this early with twins (first beta over 700 at 13dpo), so prepare yourself :)
