O.M.G

Guys… GUYS… it happened. I finally got my BFP!!! What!?!?! Never have I ever been blessed to see a second line. Not once in my life, and certainly not once in our 5 years actively TTC (trying to conceive). Shocking and exciting and nerve wracking and so many other things!

Check out our reactions and us sharing the long awaited news with family and friends below:

I had definitely been losing hope, and I think part of me simply couldn’t believe we’d ever get our happy ending after being disappointed time and time again. But on the flip side, perhaps that was just my way of guarding my heart. We protect ourselves the best we can I suppose.

Anyways, our lines have been getting progressively darker which is encouraging and I’ve been feeling increasingly unwell which is also welcomed as it gives me hope that all is progressing well.

It is obviously VERY early and there is always a risk for a chemical or miscarriage, so we really are trying to take it day by day, but we’ve never once made it this far so that in itself is something to celebrate.

Here’s a rundown of my 2ww symptoms:

  1. I am so happy for you! I’ve been following your blog for awhile and praying for you for this good news!! I got a BFN on all HPT’s leading up to beta day, so when I got a high beta I didn’t believe my nurse! I am now 25 weeks and our little baby girl is doing great! But I was and still am like you that even now, it’s hard to relax and enjoy bc you think it will be taken away from you any moment after all we have been through. Anyway, I will keep praying for you and keep us updated!! ❤❤❤
