After I posted our news on Friday, I got notified by WordPress that it was the four-year anniversary of my blog. That makes it five years – give or take – from when C and I first started trying to conceive!
That went by fast – sort of.
I feel a little bit sorry for that little newlywed me, who actually argued with my dashing new husband about when to start trying…so we could. Time. My. Maternity. Leave.
Mr. Obama finds my naive ideas about family planning hilarious!
- I married a wonderful man who doesn’t have a self-pitying bone in his body.
- We have a gorgeous son.
- We have amazing friends and family who have supported us through everything.
- Contrary to the predictions of three different REs, I have managed to get pregnant four times.
So while things have not quite gone according to plan, I’m proud of where we’ve come in the last five years, and hopeful for what the next five will bring!
For those of you who are counting, my beta came back today at 370 mIU/mL. That corresponds to a doubling time of about 33 hours.
Looks really good!
I take another test on Wednesday.
Lastly, for your viewing pleasure, here are some sweet pics of C. Samuel from our ski trip to Park City over my Spring Break:
Look who has nicer ski gear than me!
Enjoying the view from the lift.
C. Samuel wanted to hold our hands while skiing. ❤
