After spending years in a fertility clinic you begin to understand what you see on the computer, you can see the results and you can do your own research.
I had noticed previously that one of the follicles was shrinking and I had this hunch that I was right.
So on a Sunday morning I headed back to Burlington to double check before we put an end to the cycle...
Later that day I was on a video call with my mom when I got the phone call that yes we were able to proceed with the IUI the next day, and to take my shot to make me ovulate asap...
I remember grabbing it out of the fridge and injecting myself while my mom was still on the phone.
I remember feeling hot,
I remember feeling excitement,
I remember feeling fear.
We went through with the IUI.
We waited the dreaded two week wait.
And there it was...
The very, very faint, positive pregnancy test.
If you have been in this position.
You know a positive pregnancy test does not always mean a baby.
The October previous we had a chemical pregnancy.
And the spring before two miscarriages.
A positive pregnancy test was one of those things that you knew not to get overly excited over...
Yet in your head you are planning the baby room,
You are thinking... Is it another boy? Or is it a girl?
What will you be like? Will you look like your brother's?
As my baby grew,
As I could feel him move,
Hear his heart beat,
I could breathe a little more.
Telling these stories can make me choked up,
They are like rubbing salt into your wounds.
But my story is my story.
And my babies will know what their mama did to bring them here.
They will know how loved they are.
They will know that good things take time, work, strength and love.
