Making Baby 3, Pregnancy Week 3: PREGNANT!

17 October 2008

So yes! After our third try at assisted reproduction using IUI, we are finally pregnant!

I know I’m still in “early days” but to see those two lines after all these months sent a jolt from my eyeballs to my toes.

I was filled with the greatest sense of happiness, disbelief, relief, excitement, shock and I could not but feel the power of life’s sweetest word, grace.

I actually first found out that I was pregnant from a phone call. My nurse at the fertility clinic called while I was having lunch with some friends at a Chinese Restaurant. It was so noisy that I couldn’t hear what she was saying.

As I made my way outside, I was shouting “WHAT DID YOU SAY?? I’M WHAT?? CAN YOU SAY THAT AGAIN??”

I stood on the pavement, repeating to my nurse, “Really? Are you sure? I mean are you really sure??”

I walked back into the restaurant. I didn’t plan to say anything to my friends, but the smile on my face gave it away. A big wide silly grin. Ah, I couldn’t contain myself.

On my way home, I stopped off at a pharmacy and bought a home test pregnancy kit. You know, just in case the nurse was, like, joking.

It’s so amazingly strange. After 12 months of trying. I’m finally pregnant!

(PS. Again, I want to say a big THANK YOU to all the people who has sent me messages!)
