Back here after a long ... but good time!

success, EPP
I was surprised to see that my last post was in November 2013! It was after my miscarriage and I remember I needed to vent and talk about how painful the process had been.
 
Although I stopped blogging, TTC didn't stop.  Some ladies here might have followed my story on some threads in the forums, but here I am again, feeling like I need to share...

What's next?

Posted by Julia1977 , 06 November 2013 · 1,083 views

Here I am again! It's been a long time since I posted a blog here ... I haven't been very active in the forums either ... I kept on sneaking a peak at the active threads I was on .. but barely posted ... 
Part of it was being busy at work and having nothing to update on, and another part was a deep down feeling of the need to be slightly far ... away...

Flipping a page and starting over ..

Posted by Julia1977 , 12 September 2013 · 968 views

In 5 days, I will be a month over with my miscarriage.
 
Looking back at the month that preceded it, I just feel as if I never lived that experience ....
 
Even when I talk about how my life habits were different back then .. and I catch myself saying "when I was pregnant ...." ... something inside me stops and feels awkward!!!  
 
I g...

Back to square ZERO!!

It's weird how I had the feeling that this pregnancy is like a dream .. and that dreams might not easily come true!
 
After my last week's U/S @ 8weeks with the devastating news of the fetus beign 2 weeks behind with no heartbeat ... I had a confirmation today ... my pregnancy has arrested as proved by U/S and my beta levels started declining from 80...

Back to anxiety!

Posted by Julia1977 , 06 August 2013 · 1,034 views

It's 7 weeks 5 days now, and it's just 4 more days to the first U/S ... I just wishes I could have had that U/S earlier as it's starting to drive me nuts waiting for the weekend to come!
 
So far I haven't had any major symptoms to report (aside from the appetite, indigestion, and tender breasts). I never had cramps or bleeding. I just saw 2 pink dro...

Funny stuff during first trimester!

Posted by Julia1977 , 04 August 2013 · 660 views

I'm still waiting for my first U/S which is planned for next Saturday Aug 10th.
 
As I wait for that, and definitely still feeling super anxious and excited about what we shall see that day, I can't but enjoy the funny things that I'm experiencing during these weeks.
 
Since I knew I was pregnant, I haven't been having my usual full night sleep....

1st trimester ... Continuously changing focus!!

Posted by Julia1977 , 28 July 2013 · 676 views

It's amazing how the focus of attention during the first trimester (Especially the earliest weeks) change from one day to the other!!
 
Upon receiving the thrilling BFP news, my whole world revolved around BETA NUMBERS!!! I started conducting all possible internet searches (forums, google, etc.) on first betas, how many days post transfer and implant...

Almost done with the 6th week!

Posted by Julia1977 , 24 July 2013 · 655 views

I still can't believe I'm 5w6d pregnant!!
 
Yesterday I had an appointment with my family Dr. who was so excited for us.
 
She sent me for blood work today and referred me to the OB/GYN we picked ... whose clinic amazingly enough called me today as well to arrange for next steps.
 
The results of the blood work done today were all great (wi...

Feelings after second beta

Posted by Julia1977 , 21 July 2013 · 793 views

It was such a hectic week!
 
The joy we had knowing my positive first beta result was compounded by grief over the loss of a friend who had been suffering from terminal illness. I won't go through his story,  but he was such a young man with a wife and 2 kids (who became 3 after his wife's recent delivery). We had to spend the whole week in the...

13dp3dt ... POSITIVE BETA :)

Posted by Julia1977 , 13 July 2013 · 1,560 views

Yes ladies ... I finally got my positive beta today!!! 
 
The 2:45 hours wait between blood withdrawal and phone call were so slow .... and I was starting to put myself in the context of NEGATIVE results ... and started to imagine what I will do when I get that result.
 
When the nurse called I was driving ... and she was soooooo amazing as...
