Besides telling my mother, here is my only other announcement ...

I had been feeling "weird" for the past couple of weeks. My first tipoff that I MAY be pregnant is my gums. Last pregnancy, they HURT like mad to the point where it hurt to even brush my teeth. I dismissed that feeling, thinking maybe it was the night guard I wore to sleep that was causing some gum irritation. Second tipoff came when I craved Twinkies. I don't eat Twinkies. I don't like Twinkies. The last time I had Twinkies was ... 9? 10? But an outside force controlled me to the point of buying a box of Twinkies. Third tipoff was that my cycle is every 28 days to the point where I could set my clock to my cycle. On Sunday, I was officially a day late.

So yesterday, I was going to the doctor for a sore throat (wanted to know if maybe it was strep) and decided that I should maybe POAS to rule out any pregnancy in case they wanted to prescribe me antibiotics.

So I POAS. And it turned positive within a minute. I showed DH and he couldn't believe it. I told him I'd POAS in the a.m. again. Of course, I didn't sleep a wink all night (yah, it sucks to watch the clock tick by from 11p.m. until 5:15 a.m. ...), so I POAS again around 4:20 a.m. Positive. I chalked it up to both tests being old (even though the expiry was 8/2009) and defective (since they were the last two that remained in the box).

So when I went to pick up my antibiotic prescription after the doctor visit, I picked up a Walgreen's test. HA! This one will surely be negative, I though ... expiry in 2011, different brand. Nope. Took the test around 3:00 p.m. POSITIVE.

***?! It took us 5 years of infertility, accupuncture, doctors visits, blood tests, HSG, Gonal-F injections, sperm analysis, and IUIs in order to get pregnant just once. And now, without even timing it properly --- hell, I work DAYS and DH works nights! --- I get three positive pregnancy tests?!

I feel like I'm being Punk'D ... or on Candid Camera ... my mind has been in a dizzy spin since Sunday night, of course ... but I HAD to tell SOMEONE so I posted it here.

Ummmm okay this is freaking AMAZING!!! I couldn't believe it when I saw the title of your post!!!

This is so exciting. I was wondering if you would have anymore children and was hoping you would. I have read about people with infertility problems getting pregnant just out of the blue on their own. It's a miracle and I'm so happy for you!!!!!!! Barb's having another baby!!!

*HUGE HUGS*

Right?!! I totally did need treatments to have Julia and Noah
And we figured we didn't NEED birth control because ... well, good hell ... why on earth WOULD we if we went through all that crap just to get pregnant in the first place?!

And the only reason I tested was cuz of the ****** gum irritation, Twinkies, and being a day late ... and because I didn't want to harm a possible fetus with medications that a pregnant woman shouldn't take.

Ladies ... I really am in shock. Beyond words. Beyond comprehension. Beyond ... all in the name of miracles in this universe. I cannot believe this. Maybe, just maybe, my body adjusted itself after the gonal-f, stim shots, progesterone suppositories (sheesh ... when the hell did having a baby get so technical) and all that jazz?

So you see, how could I NOT share this with the sisterhood of the JM ya-yas (my attempt at humor )?

Moms ... thank you. Thank you for listening, thank you for the well wishes, the congratulations, and especially the baby dust. I guess sometimes miracles do come true

The only "I Believe in Miracles" that I know of is by The Ramones, so that made ME think of this song

Yay!! Congrats. I want to get some of the water going on around here but dh says he wants to wait. So I am hoping for an oops. It took us almost 5 yrs to get pg with Abby, but only a year with Hannah. Its funny how pregnancy can actually make us more fertile. lol

This is the best place for a baby boom!! I couldn't think of better people to get bfp's!!
