Hope and hapiness

Sixteen weeks tomorrow, I can hardly believe it. All is well and I am the happiest girl in the land. I did have a brief panic last week and decided not to post about it. A lot of close family and friends now read my blog and I didn’t want to worry anyone.

All that happened was that I lay still one morning for about an hour and couldn’t feel the baby moving. Went about my business and came home with some niggly doubts in my mind. Lay down again for another hour or so and nothing. Tried again later, nothing. Shed a few tears, went back to my (home) office, couldn’t quite stop the tears and before I knew it I was back at the bottom of the pit of infertility, crying and wailing like a pro.

I chilled out a little the next day but didn’t quite get my groove back until junior started bouncing again the following day.

So, once an infertile, always an infertile? Well that is certainly true but does it mean we can never enjoy pregnancy like normal people? I don’t think so. It is terrifying at times but it is also the most fantastically wonderful feeling in the world and I can’t stop smiling when I’m not crying. Pregnancy is so important, so special and so worth waiting for. I know it will upset some people to read this and that is the last thing I mean to do but I just wanted to reassure those that are still waiting that it does make all the badness go away.

And I am so proud of myself, for getting through everything, for keeping going when many thought I should stop, when even my doctors didn’t know what to do with me. I knew it was the right thing to do, the only thing we could do and when I hear my DS talking so excitedly about the baby (it will be a girl and he will call her Josie or Annie) all the time, I can’t imagine what a loss it would have been if we had given up.

I know I am talking like a woman who thinks she is going to have a baby. I know it’s not that simple, I know there will be dangerous times ahead. But I have to be optimistic, to enjoy this time that we have waited so long for. And maybe there will even be a baby at the end of it.

  1. Feebee, I just can’t imagine how you feel but it must be fantastic. You had the courage to keep at it and like you said never give up on it.
    Can’t believe you are 4 mths already.

  2. I’m so SO happy for you! Its great to see you so happy, you have waited so long for this. Enjoy every minute!

  3. I’m just so delighted that your bravery and perseverance paid off and it’s all going well. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and your little man has a great birthday this year.

    I like ‘Josie’ by the way!


  4. You should be proud of yourself, very proud, for whatever happens, this is an achievement that merits that pride 🙂


  5. Thanks everyone!

    Sarah – I do have a bump, a fairly obvious one! It just appeared in the last week or two.

    Denise – I posted a comment about Clomid on the last post, only saw your question the other day.

    Cant tell you how delighted I am to read your news. I don’t get on line very often but when I do just have to check into your blog to see how you are keeping.

    Hoping the next 24 weeks fly by and all is well .. you deserve it.

    Best wishes


  7. Hey Feebee,
    Thanks for the response on Clomid, I am going to a new RE so I will ask her what she thinks, could be worth a shot.
    On another note, has anyone at all heard from Adrienne (Max’s Mommy)? I followed her blog for ages and that is how I found yours. It is just so weird that she disappeared after such a loyal following.
    I love the name Josie, so for sure it’s a girl?

  8. Great info and right to the point. I don’t know if this is truly the best place to ask but do you people have any thoughts on where to employ some professional writers? Thanks in advance 🙂

  9. Thanks for your gipelris posting on this weblog. From my own experience, occasionally softening upwards a photograph may provide the photo shooter with a little an imaginative flare. Often however, the soft cloud isn’t what precisely you had in mind and can usually spoil a normally good image, especially if you thinking about enlarging it.

  10. I will immediately grab bikisoe your rss feed as I can not find your email subscription link or e-newsletter service. Do you have any? Kindly let me know in order that I could subscribe. Thanks.

  11. Whats up this kiollsos is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
