I'm going there...

Because it's Friday, and I'm happy...and because the people who know me already know what a loon I really am...I looked up my potential due date. I've decided to just be happy about this, and with where I am right now, and grateful for every day that I remain pregnant. It's still incredibly hard to wrap my head around the idea. I've decided to not wait for the other shoe to drop.

If this pregnancy goes well, with a singleton, I would be due on Dec 2. If it's twins, you can shave off about 4 weeks from that date. Despite my numbers, which put me right in the middle of "normal" for a singleton, I still have a small feeling there might be two. I've thought that all along. We'll see...

They date IVF pregnancies from the day of egg retrieval, which is essentionally ovulation day (although you don't O with IVF, they go in and get them before you can).

According to the calculator, baby's little heart could start beating tomorrow. OMGoodness. I am just completely overwhelmed with the idea that I have a little life growing inside me. After 4 years, it is completely surreal.

Dan is so so happy. Partly because we FINALLY did it, and partly because I know he wants this so much. He's so excited about seeing the u/s. I think then it will finally seem real to him. We'll have tangible proof that it finally worked!!!

I'm proud of you! I couldn't be happier for you both. You totally deserve this - go ahead, look up your EDD all day long :)

I can't even tell you how happy I am for you.. Take it all in, love the fact that no matter what, you have support behind you, on each side and then some. I am sure there are prayers and love in every direction.

You have every right to be looking up your EDD -- you worked long and hard for it ;-) I'm still so excited for you and can't wait until your first appointment!

Again, I'm right there with you. Just looked it up myself and can't wait for that first u/s and heartbeat. I know I'll always be nervous from now on, but I know that will make us feel better...and you too. It's been a long road and you two deserve all the happiness this pregnancy can bring you!

Good luck on beta #3 tomorrow. Again, it's going to be ANOTHER good day in St. Louis! :)

Hi Stacey, I'm new on your blog, I've read your story since last year and I was delighted to read about your recent BFP!! I was looking for an email address to contact you in pvt but no joy. Anway, thumbs up from a girl in Europe who knows exactly what you have been going through. Love, Fran

I really and truly am so happy for you. I know it's been a long wait and a lot of disappointment, and I am hoping and praying that you have a healthy and happy pregnancy from here on out. Be it with one or two!
