Finally

I started this blog on the 15th of August 2006 with the hope of it being a journal of our first pregnancy within a few months...well it has taken til now and lots of well wishes, hopes, prayers and begging (me begging my body to do the right thing!)but I am finally very happy to report that after 4 long years with over 18 months of IVF we are finally going to have a baby of our own!!!

I've roughly worked out dates and because of the day it falls I'm sticking with it no matter what the docs say! So that would make me 5 weeks today! With our EDD being the 21st of July, my dad and sister-in-laws birthdays!

I'm going to try and blog each week as a record of this wonderful journey so sorry if it bores you but I will still keep up with the quilting/regular life stuff too!

So far I'm feeling really good. I fall asleep on the couch most afternoons after school for an hour or so! I haven't had any morning sickness yet. I can feel some minor belly 'pains' just some stretching I think...but they are not bad...actually a nice reminder...as if I need one!

Our first scan is scheduled for the 18th of December.

Starting Weight = 65.5 kg (2 kg less than normal/average weight)

Sorry I am so late in sending you my congratulations. I was thinking of you while I was away and then I was sick, so didn't get to read back on EB or catch up on any blogs!

So, at long last, I am so thrilled for you both! Congratulations and smooth sailing until July :)

Well done and PMSL at that baby dream!!!!
