5 Weeks

We hit the 5 week mark today and I'm barely getting used to the idea that I'm pregnant. :) After experiencing a loss, on top of all of the other crushed hopes we've had over the last few's just hard to fully dive in and accept this as the real deal. Is it really possible that something actually worked for us??? lol. I think I will feel this way until we see the heartbeat(s) or I find myself hugging a toilet and puking my guts out - whichever comes first! ;) It's still too early for significant symptoms, so for right now, I'm feeling pretty normal. Just a little more tired than usual. :)

I'm still doing daily injections and while I am so thankful to have a reason to do them, my butt is getting tired of it. lol. It's a small price to pay for the blessing of a pregnancy, but I will be glad when I don't have to do them any more, you know? I believe that the plan is to check my hormone levels when we do the ultrasound on the 30th. If everything looks good, Dr. Q will switch me off injectables and on to suppositories. So that's another reason to look forward to ultrasound day! :) 12 days to go and it can't get here soon enough!


  1. It is all so worth it! Risking your heart on diving in and cherishing every single second with this little blessing is worth it too. In the giving and taking and keeping and losing there are God's blessings to us thru it all. Even when a stay is far too brief, I have never wished I spent less time cherishing my littles. Those shots do get tougher as time goes by...I remember. Only a few more shots to go! :)
    I am praying for you. Congratulations!!!

  2. I'm keeping you all in my thoughts! I can't wait to hear about your ultrasound :)

  3. I can only think "of course!" you would find it hard to wrap your mind around the idea that something finally worked. I have often thought that if I ever get pregnant I would feel the same way. The best thing I ever heard a woman in your shoes say was, "Every time I feel my heart holding back, I say, 'Today I am pregnant and I love my baby.'" And that's how she worked to open her heart up to receive the joy she had been waiting for, for so long!

    Obviously I have no idea if that would actually be helpful since I have no experience, but thought I'd share. Give yourself grace! I can't wait until you hear that heartbeat(s)!! Praying with confidence for a smooth pregnancy!

  4. Happy six weeks Denay and Ryan!!!

  5. Can't wait for you to hear that heartbeat(s)! Best sound ever.
    Merry Christmas to you and baby! :)
