Today I’ve done the majority of my xmas shopping, huzzah! I hate shopping, but as hubby was off work today too i figured we should head over to the local shopping centre and get as much done as possible. Less than 3 hours later, we are home with the majority of gifts bought, plus we had a nice lunch too….which i inhaled, much to hubby’s amusement!
Anyway, on to my main reason for posting….announcing the pregnancy. My blog is attached to my twitter and Facebook accounts so it is now public knowledge that I’m pregnant….the general rule of thumb is to hold off announcing until 12 weeks gestation. Here’s why I’ve chosen to ignore that ‘rule’…
1. We held off announcing until 12 weeks last time and sadly the pregnancy ended at 21 weeks anyway. They say not to share details of your pregnancy before 12 weeks in case of miscarriage, but in my eyes, id want and need the support of friends and family if that were to happen.
2. Im DETERMINED to enjoy this pregnancy. I spent the first 16 weeks with Milo in utter disbelief, shock and a state of high anxiety. By the time i actually settled down and got excited, i only had 4 weeks before we were given his diagnosis. There is no way hubby and i want it to go that way again, so better to enjoy it with family and friends from the word go.
3. This blog. I promised id be open and honest when i started it, and if i just neglected to mention the fact i was pregnant it’d kinda negate the whole point wouldn’t it? Plus everyone i know in real life/virtually knows about our IVF and trying to conceive journey anyways, ill happily talk about it to anyone that will listen, so i know everyone was waiting for the result as they want to share our journey. This makes me happy!
I know I’m going against the grain, but I’ve never been one for following the crowd. Im so lucky to have so many people invested in this pregnancy and I’m so excited to share it with them, so I’m gonna!!
Ive spoken to my bereavement team today, who are thrilled for us and have promised to get in touch with my consultant to arrange an early appointment and scan! Eeek!
My bloods are back, I’m 13 days past a 5 day transfer, or 18 days post ovulation and beta Hcg is 813.4.
Sounds good to me but ill wait to hear from Team Miracle….who have come back to say they suspect strong TWINS!!!!!! 🙊😍😱🙀👌👏💕💕💕💕
