I am five days past our transfer of one beautiful 5-day blastocyst. This morning I hoped I’d see two lines on the home pregnancy tests. No luck. My faith momentarily faltered but I tried to remind myself that it is still early. After a busy afternoon spent with our Miracle Toddler, I decided to tempt fate one more time. Here we go…
(The test lines look darker and pink in real life. You’ll have to take my word for it.)
I am awash with gratitude, fear and hope. The tests this evening were very faint, but clearly positive. My first beta-hCG (blood test) is the day after tomorrow (Tuesday, May 27th).
Thank you, God.
Thank you, Universe.
Thank you, readers and fellow bloggers.
And thank you, Me. As the LP has said, I have worked so hard for this. Of course, hard work hasn’t won many of us our battles with the fertility albatross we lug around each of our necks. And of course this is not the end of the line. A lot could go wrong before we cross the finish line. But for today, everything is awesome.
Today, I am over the moon ecstatic. And ever so exuberantly – albeit cautiously – optimistic.
