Has anyone else experienced this? DH and I TTC for 3 years, 7 years ago and had all but given up. I never thought I'd be able to give the coveted news,"I'm pregnant!" We started adoption home studies. I decided two years ago I was going to give this another try until I turned 40. I went on a 6 month "break" with Lupron (shuts down your reproductive system...best 6 months ever after 23 years of the most horrible periods), then an HSG cleared my tubes...and here I am...on the couch....nauseated as can be....after my very healthy 8 week ultrasound complete with baby's heartbeat wondering how I'm going to handle this. I had written this off....my body was not going to allow me this joy. Am I still wondering if it's a dream? Or a joke? How do you just wait for something for 10 years, and then find the excitement you expected to have? I'm just straight up scared....and still very doubtful.View Thread
Thank you so much, both of you, for your replies. Susan...thank you for taking the time to comfort me even though your daughter is 4 now...I can't tell you how much it means to me that you've reached out here. I was even attending an infertility support group, so it's difficult to share the happy news with those who are still suffering. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. (P.S. I will try to be grateful for the nausea...I can see that it's a good thing)View Thread
