hi ladies. I cannot believe I'm pregnant- it seems surreal. Lately DH and I have been talking about looking into fostering or adoption as a long term plan, so although we still hoped to get pregnant- it's such a suprise!!!! We also hade a semen analysis and a HSG scheduled with our RE. I guess G-d decided he'd rather pick the right time!!!!!!! We have been trying for 16 months now, and I had had 3 miscarriages- 2 early ones, and one at 11 week, of twins. I have seen an RE, and had a surgery to remove a uterine abnormality that she believes (and I do too) was causing me to miscarry.

I'm feeling a lot better today then I have, and having a few more symptoms, so that is reasurring. I'm still not ready to join a DDC- this early all the goodbye posts will just terrify me.

I cannot believe it, and Rob and I have decided to just embrace this pregnancy and be positive. I am getting rid of all my fears, or at least squlching them with positive affirmations. I vow to enjoy it and love my baby and myself, and I'm trying to trust my body more then I ever have. Last night was so beautiful- we laid in bed together and just talked about how next december We'll have a baby!!! It was so wonderful, b/c we've always before been afraid to say that. I am certainly not ready to shout it to the world or buy lots of things, but I am thinking about telling someone, b/c I do need the support from a live face and voice sometimes. But I don't feel quite ready. Or know exactly who to tell.

Luckily- I have lots to keep me busy this week and for the next few, and I'm just going to enjoy the subtle changes and the knowledge that I am growing a baby inside of me. I am amazed, and just so thankful. I am confident in the innate ability of my body to grow and birth a healthy, term baby.

Still- sticky dust never hurts!!!!!

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have seen some of your posts on other boards before, so I am very happy to hear you are pregnant!!!

I agree with you...For some crazy reason I am not letting fear overtake me. Granted, if I develop spotting or anything like that, it is of course going to come out and I will be worried alot, but as of now our take on it is everything is going to be all right and around Thanksgiving we will be bring home our baby.

I'll be thinking of you!!!
