I've always dreamed of what I would say when I would be able to write my BFP post. Now its just surreal. After 2 1/2 years of TTC baby number 1, I finally received my second pink line. IUI #3 was truly a charm :) I'M PREGNANT!
Yesterday morning at 10-11dpo I had some brown blood with a few red dots in it. I knew it was too early for AF to arrive. I was out of town visiting friends and family so I had to wait until I came home to test. The entire drive home I prayed that this was going to be it, that it would finally be my turn and that I would be able to stop worrying "if" I would ever be lucky enough to be a mother. I got my second pink line and haven't stopped crying since. I'm over the moon. I told DH in no creative way... I knew I wouldn't be able to keep it together long enough to plan out something creative. We are both still in shock, although he said he thought that this IUI would work :)
For those of you still trying (especially the long term TTC'ers that have been trying way longer than me) keep trying, keep fighting, and don't give up. One day soon it will be your time, your number will be called, and you will get to experience this joy that you deserve.
Thanks to this entire group... you all have helped me so much and given me someone to talk to that just "got it".
