Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

hate feeling great

Did you see what I did there? My attempt at poetry. Okay, so I rhymed. But I feel talented and quite witty, so please just humor me.

I am now 5 weeks pregnant. And I feel fantastic. Normally this would be great news, but to an infertile it is scary as heck. I guess even first time moms or those that have experienced a loss may feel the same way. When you are finally pregnant you want something, anything to reassure you. Morning sickness is a great sign. Peeing every five minutes another. Even heartburn and sore boobs make you smile. But I got nothin'. I am little bit tired and my boobs feel like right before AF but that is it. I do have a stuffy nose which is a telltale sign for me, but it is also indicative of a cold. With my last pregnancy I felt fantastic too so I shouldn't be worried, but I can't help it. I will be happy to feel great once I see this little bean's heartbeat in a week and a half.

Now watch me start vomiting every morning and have horrible heartburn. Just know if I do I will return with another witty title to announce my complaining. ;)


  1. The waiting through the first trimester can be such a roller coaster! Praying for a healthy pregnancy.

  2. I've been through 7 IVF cycles, 3 with donor eggs. All have failed (BFN). I was very happy to read your blog today and see very good news. Congrats, and enjoy your pregnancy. http://www.fertilityauthority.com/blogger/julie-monacelli/2013/9/06/normal-people-don%E2%80%99t-talk-about
