It’s so hard to believe that this time last year we were doing our 3rd and final IUI in attempts to get pregnant. We were also discussing IVF options and whether we could afford it. Now we are having our first child in 3 weeks-WOW!! Crazy excited!!! This has been an amazing pregnancy and has gone by so fast. I have enjoyed every nauseous feeling, kick, cramp, contraction, and pound I’ve gained. I know there are so many women out there trying still to get pregnant, even friends of mine. It took us almost 3 years and although I was very depressed those 3 years and at times didn’t think it was ever going to happen, I can honestly look back and say it just wasn’t our time. I feel that everything happened as it should have and when it should have. It has prepared me mentally for anything and I have the most amazing man in my life who has walked through it with me. It has brought us closer than I could ever imagine. I know most marriages do not make it through infertility struggles but we stayed close and honest about our feelings. We cried it out, argued it out, whatever we needed to do then we moved forward. Regardless, we vowed to stay together and do whatever it took so nothing was going to get in our way.
So I really wouldn’t change anything. We are very excited to meet little Mason! Next Thursday we will do an Ultrasound to see how much he weighs and how much he will weigh at birth. I love seeing him on the Ultrasound screen. Last time we saw him he looked like he was sucking his fingers and yawning! Too cute. The next couple of weeks are going to fly by so I’m going to enjoy being pregnant for a little longer in case we don’t have this opportunity again. Even though I see a second baby in our future 😉
