As you all know tomorrow is the big day, and yes, as expected, I am very, very, very anxious.
I am feeling like we may get some good news, but I refuse to get me hopes up as we have been down this road more than a few times, and every time that I was "convinced" that I was pregnant, I got a big fat negative.
Lets just say I'm cautiously optimistic.
If I needed any sort of sign that I may be with child, the following would be a great indication. Either that or I am in some serious need of a new face cream.
So, last night I was in the grocery store and I ran into a Mom of one of the local kids. She knew we had been trying to have a baby, but not all of the gory details regarding our efforts. I had just been swimming with the little man, and granted I did not look my finest, but after a few minutes of catching up she cautiously asked, "is there any news on the baby front?" "Nothing certain, but we just did another round of IVF I replied. "Well, she said... the minute I saw you I knew, you do not look like her usual self. I thought she looks very tired, and kind of gray so she must be pregnant."
Thanks I guess? I actually took this as a good omen, rather than a comment on how awful I looked, but as I was leaving all I could think was.... so much for that glow.
I thought nothing of it until today, when I ran into my neighbor in the hallway. "Oh my goodness," she said when she saw me. "I'm guessing you have good news?" "No, not yet, I replied." "Um, I think you definitely are knocked up... you just look so tired!"
Okay, okay... if I'm not pregnant I'm making that Botox appointment stat!
Well, tomorrow we will see, and I'll let you all know as soon as we tell our families... which if you know me, means within hours after! Thank you again for all of you well wishes, and kind thoughts, you have been a great support system over the last few years and I know I couldn't have made it through all of this without you!
