Bob and I are having a baby!!!!
After quite a journey, we can now officially say we are going to be parents. Typing and saying those words is so surreal. For as much as I have tried to be positive and optimistic from the beginning, there were days where it was hard to believe it would happen, but still...here we are!
So, I'm about 10 weeks along. Still in the first trimester. I don't have an official due date yet, but according to all the online calculators I've used, it's January 29.
I feel great. I am lucky to say I haven't had any morning sickness or bad symptoms yet. I am tired and hungry all the time. Actually, the lack of symptoms has made me a little paranoid, because it makes it hard to believe it's real! Bob tries to laugh it off and remind me how lucky I am to feel good. I even talked to our fertility doctor about it. He told me it's great, but it's completely normal to be as worried as I am.
I know some people are curious about what it took to get us to this point, so I have written a few posts to explain the process, which started a little over 2 months ago. I have them linked below. Read them if you're interested. Either way, the outcome is the same - theres a BABY in MY belly!!!!!!

We can't thank you enough for your love and support!!!
I can't say enough how lucky we are to have the friends and family that we do. I can't say enough how lucky I am that I married Bob. I've mentioned before that this blog is honestly for me more than anything. I write so I can understand and I write so I can remember. I also write because I hope someone else will stumble on this and it will help them. We were lucky to have people placed in our life since our diagnosis that have been or are in similar situations as us.
