It’s been a very exciting couple of days. I was waiting to post about this because my mom made me paranoid. BUT. SO. I found a little clip iPod on the street. Yay!
BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY I peed on a stick and a big + appeared!!! Technically first I had my blood drawn and a nurse phoned me to tell me the good news. Then I spent the morning sobbing with happiness. Then my honey ran out and bought a stick for me to pee on so we could have that experience. Then there was significantly more joy-crying. Oh my god, I’m crying again.
You don’t even know what this means to me. It’s been a really shitty year and a half where life reminded me over and over that everything can always get worse. “You thinks infertility sucks? And that your grandmother’s health scare was bad? Well let’s see how you handle your dad’s unexpected death, Margaret.”
It really felt like I couldn’t have anything. I still can’t believe that this, the third and final IVF round, worked. Oh shit. I’m crying again. Fortunately I had for sight enough to confirm with my doctor that crying will not harm the fetus.
I just feel so so so very lucky right now. This mini iPod is going to be so useful.

Thank you so much :)) It might be the hormones, but your sweet little comment has me tearing up 🙂
Omg omg omg omg omg OH. MY. GOD WE’RE HAVING A BABY or two!!! Congratulations!!! I look forward to reading about your pregnancy journey and seeing baby bump pictures
That’s how I feel toooooo!!!!!! I don’t want to jinx anything but some numbers tripled in a very short period of time so there might actually be more than one bun in this oven :))))))))
Wow, congratulations! If it’s a girl, she’ll have access to plenty of accessories 😀
I know, right?!?! I’ll have to put a lockdown on the nice stuff until she’s older but everything else would be for her to play with if she wanted 🙂
Congratulations!! I’m so excited to discover your bangled blog on the very day you announced your happy news! And here you’ve been hanging around over at my blog today and never mentioned a word. If it were me I’d probably visit every blog I could find, leaving drive-by comments about the big news!! I don’t even know you and I’m incredibly excited for you!!
Oh man, you are so nice! Wow!! I am very excited. Next time I’ll be sure to be like “oh, nice that you have a cutie pie Pebbles picture there btw I’m getting one of those too” 🙂
See? That’s what I’m talkin’ about. Go find all the baby blogs and post that right now.
😀 you are killing me today. Just making everything great, thank you!
Phenomenal x 3!!! I’m just now reading this and wow. I personally wish you the very best as you pass through the first phase of this magnificent experience. I feel very blessed to have gotten to know you here on the WP. Reading this post and seeing how much it means for your life just made my year!
I feel so touched, thank you for caring (and for reading) and for the well wishes. I’m moved!!!
I really enjoy hearing good news!
Congratulations, what amazing, happy & lovely news! So happy for you. I think the best part of your life is just starting and that’s so exciting. You must still be freaking out–let yourself freak out this is the best news ever=)
I am freaking out! And yo-yo crying slash laughing. Also I have no clue how I’m supposed to keep this quiet for 3 more months. We told the friends and family who know about the ivf, but the rest of the world? I accidentally told a customer today 🙊
It’s gotta be hard to keep that quiet! do whatever feels right!
Ha!! That sounds like the intro to a seventies sitcom. I love it!!
Thank yoooooou!!!! 😸
This is the best post I’ve read this week. This is my new favorite thing. Is it weird to say that I already adore the bun/s in the oven?! I can’t help it, the mom is just adorable. I am so happy! You deserve all the happiness in the world. I can’t stop typing good things and it’s because of you.
I have the biggest grin on my face from all your typing of good things :))))
Congratulations!! This is the best news!! < 3
It is!! Thank you thank you!
Congratulations! I’ve read your post on my phone this morning and it was so nice to read something so happy first thing in a sunny Saturday!
Awwww thank you :)))) sometimes everything works out right
I’m so very happy for you. Wonderful news. Sending warm, happy rays your way….
I found your blog through one of your comments on Underdaddy’s blog, and one of the first posts I read of yours was “Ghost Dad lol.” When I read that, it broke my heart (I’m super close to my dad too). I thought, “Man, this poor girl really needs a break.” I’m so happy to hear that you finally seem to be getting that break. Congratulations, and I can’t wait to read your future posts about your bangle baby(ies)! 🙂
Thank you for understanding. My honey said the exact thing “you really need this break” and it’s so true. Give your dad an extra big hug next time you see him. I miss mine so much. And thanks for finding my little blog too 🙂
Congratulations and yes, you had to do it the traditional way, too! The peeing on a stick just is kind of magical. I was rooting for this to happen and you and hubby have a wonderful and safe 9 months to wait on the special delivery! Hugs and lots of smiles sent your way, too.
I fell behind since the weather has been kind of bad to walk to the library and usually I don’t get to read as much as I would like…
This was the BEST news I heard in a long time, my dear!!
Thank you thank you :))) stay warm! I do not envy that walk to the library in the snow, but I do like Ohio in the Spring. I bet the walk is nice then 🙂
Oh my goshhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations!!!! I am so very happy for you!!! Now you can eat all the sandwiches and cheeseburgers and everything else that you want! 🙂
Exactly! I was just sitting here at work trying to figure out if I can convince my mom to go pick up a sandwich for me :)))
Oh my gosh just rub in the grandchild thing, and she’ll be hooked. 🙂
My mom is already fussing so much, I love it. Bottled water drop off today was definitely a perk.
