I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

That is a great beta!!! So happy for you.

I saw the link for your blog on FF, I must admit i have been trying to keep an eye on Elowyn(SP?) we were both at 18dpo the same day and my beta came back as 13 and then 9 then af started at 22 dpo, Anyway while i was lurking i saw your digital bfp so decided to take a look at your blog.

Me, being the nosey person i am have also been reading the other comments, I hope you don't mind, some of the comment you have recieved have been a bit harsh but, and im sure you have heard this a hundred times before, ignore them!!! No matter what you do someone will always have something negitive to say!! It will either be, your too young, your too old, you dont have a partner, you havent been with your partner long enough etc etc The first and last comments are the two that are being directed to me at the moment, I just dont see why people cannot respect our decisions, we didnt just wake up one morning and decide , oo i know i'm going to have a baby.

Sorry for going off on a tangent there, I do that alot, if i ever post on the same board as you you will notice that, I think its a scottish trait, we all could talk (and type)all day.

Happy and healthy remaining 8 months

Oh I am so happy for you!!!! I can't believe it finally happened and just before that dreaded hsg. Did you cancel that appointment yet??

I have been sitting on pins and needles waiting for the beta. I was so hoping you would not have to do the procedure because I know you were so worried about it. Now look no more worries just a blissful 8 months to go.

I hope you keep posting your symtoms and keep sharing your journey with us.
