Baby! Where are you?

Yipee!!

Yipee I am officially pregnant!!!
I am officially normal (just like every other pregnant woman now-if you forget about the baggage) and hopefully today was my last trip to Hobart for IVF...For a very long time!
One strong heartbeat. Two relieved parents to be.
I think the good Dr.B was also relieved. He looked really nervous. He said he picked up our file this morning and realised how big it had become. I bet he is glad to see the back of us, we haven't been great for his stats!
After the scan Dr.B gave us some photos of the blob and insisted that we took them to the clinic to show the nurses. We did this. I must say I couldn't wipe this stupid goofy grin off my face.
Action Man has renamed the little thing Thector which is a combination of Hector and Thelma. I'm not sure that that is a particulary cute or tasteful pet name but it will do!
Righto, I'm going back to my cloud nine (actually I need to go and sleep).
Thanks for your well wishes.
Yipee!

  • Thanks for the nice comment.

    I sell a bit of my knitting in the CWA gift shop in town.

    We may have to meet or you could come along to the SnB (groups.msn.com/snb-launceston) get together in the school holidays we could meet there and we could come to an arrangement and I could make you some baby knitwear.

    Coming along would be good as you could also get to meet some of the other local knit bloggers.

    Drop in and have a cuppa with us.

  • I started reading your blog tonight and read the whole lot. What a fantastic entry to finish on. I'm very new to blogging but not to IF and have found 2 people in Tasmania with wonderful/tragic/truthful/heartbreaking stories that have helped me put my own story into perspective. I have had to create a blog address to leave a comment but am not sure if I have enough to say to really start. I have the same RE but fortunately only have to travel to the next suburb. I too long for the day when I wont ever have to go there again. I drive past the clinic everyday and it still gives me an indescribable feeling in my chest that I feel is likely to always be there. You have given me renewed hope for our 4th cycle to start next week. Can't wait to read the next installment. Very sorry to hear about your friend abusing the priviledge of reading your blog.
