Quick Update..

So looking back on what I have been through, what so many of you have been through, I can't help to think about the courage we have to face our fear of not being able to have a child.

This has been a tremendous journey, filled with peaks, valleys, dry deserts, and lush fields. We are soldiers, no, warriors in the land of IF and I for one will never stop fighting. I will raise my sword to the big infertility monster and say NO MORE!

I feel like William Wallace from Braveheart - FREEDOM!!!!

Anyway, I am here to tell you I have wounded, maybe slain my IF monster.

I'm PREGNANT!!!!



Each of these tests were done in the evening, starting Friday! They have been progressively darker, the one from today is at the top. The test line is darker than the control line!
I feel like shit, I can't stand the one thing I love to eat (chocolate), and I feel like I just ate a HUGE meal all the time. But I don't care.
So worth it to see those lovely lines and to know IVF worked! Official blood test tomorrow, so I will post the results :)
I'm so excited I could pee! Not like I have already done it a thousand times today!
Thank you to everyone for your prayers and support, I can't do it without you :) I am blessed!
Love to all,
Carol
.....but you can call me mommy
