/ The RE's Muse: 326

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

Saturday, October 30, 2004


As you can see from the above number, I am able to continue breathing for the rest of the day. Beta #2 has more than doubled and I am, for the time being, somewhat relieved. I'll probably coast through today with that knowledge comfortable in my head and then my stress levels will amp up starting again tonight, building up to beta #3 Monday morning at 8 a.m.

I really don't know what to say other than I am shocked by this turn of events. It hasn't really sunk in and I'm also not really letting it sink in. Questions I answer from A about this pregnancy are started with "If we have a baby..." not "When...." I'm still in self-preservation mode and intend on staying there for a good long time.

One thing that I do know what to say is--again--thank you. I don't know how I could make it through each day (past, current, and future) without such thoughtful and wonderful responses from each of you. You are my touchstone, and I'm grateful for the day I came upon this group of strong women via Getupgrrl. So thank you again, friends. I'm glad we have one another to lean on in good and bad times. You get it...you really do, and for that I'm so grateful.

Dee, I'm absolutely thrilled for you. But I know exactly what you mean about it offering security only until the night...when you start to wonder if it is going to keep rising. It's been 8 days since my last beta and I am officially going insane. But, there are the ultrasounds to look forward to!

Great numbers! Grow, grow, grow little one.

I wish it wasn't so uncertain. That we could jump ahead to the end, see the happy ending, then come back and enjoy pregnancy the way it is supposed to be.

In absence of that, I appreciate your tentativeness and hope you take it easy and quietly smile when you're alone in your room.
