I am a liar ,again!!

so I am sorry I haven't been writing lately, it's been a little hectic. So let's back up:

August 7th-I came home from traveling for work for 2 weeks. This was the longest 2ww of my life. I was in a 2ww wait but also just having a really hard time with life. I was sick of the hormones, sick of the mood swings, sick of not spending money on small things-just sick of it all. I decided to take a hpt that evening, although I knew not to take it until morning, but figured this would lesson the blow (if that is ever possible.) So I took the test, and it turned colors right away, there was no question, the line was darker than the picture on the box. So the next morning I made a Dr's appt, because I really didn't believe it.

August 8th-beta 282-holy shit!!!!

So I was totally pregnant, but scared shitless!! I had the worst anxiety that my biggest nightmare would happen again.

August 15th-went to work not feeling well, and was having major cramping. Called my dr and went in on August 16th-they found that I had a few ovarian cysts, and probably ruptured one. But also saw the sak-which normally is not visible.

August 26-u/s number two--HEARTBEAT 136 bpm!! This is what we wanted, at this point we move up to 96% to caring this baby full term. If fact I graduate back to my OB/GYN on Friday of next week. I am kind of sad to leave my RE, but that was the ultimate goal. I have one more ultrasound on Tuesday.

So, how am I feeling you ask? Like crap! I am not vomiting, but extremely nauseous all the time. In the beginning I didn't really understand all the hype about being tired, because I wasn't. I get it now. I feel like I have been hit by a truck from the time I get up until I go to bed! It is terrible, but in no way am I complaining. I have never been so excited to feel like such crap!

I will fill all of you in on more details in the days to come, now that I can write about this again. Sorry for the delay in the news, we just needed some time to digest all of this. It has been a little scary, and realistically we still have a few weeks to go before we are truly out of the woods. Please keep praying for us that this all works out! We want this so badly!!

Ps. It really only does take one!!!

I've been waiting for this post!!!!!!!
Yay, SOOOOOO thrilled for you!!
Sounds like we are going through a lot of the same stuff...painful and scary ruptured cyst, insane exhaustion, extreme nausea but no vomiting...but like you said, I am gladly enduring this in the hopes of the babies to come!
Take it easy on yourself now, you need a lot of rest now!! :)

I just get shivers when I think about this miracle and it is hard to explain how happy that I am for both of you. I just want to jump around in excitment. So you are in our prayers and so is my little niece or nephew...oh this couldn't be any better..and like I have said before you both have set such an example for us and i feel more prepared than I ever would have been if we end up struggling to get pregnant as well. So THANK YOU!!

Love you both!
Ben and Jenna

omgsh...omgsh... I am so excited for you. I was just thinking of you a few days ago and wondering if this could be why you hadn't updated! I know the first weeks are scary, I was a nervous wreck! Once you make it to your 2nd trimester you will breath a little easier. This is the best news I have heard in a few weeks! YAY!!!!!!!!!

As far as the morning sickness goes, it too shall pass with the 2nd trimester. I was so sick in the beginning, but now I feel great! I found that carbs (mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, etc) helped keep the nausea at bay!
