Another ICLW

I decided, since I'm home this week on a school vacation, I should participate in ICLW again. I should have plenty of time for commenting and exploring new blogs. :)

For new readers, a link to my whole history is in my side bar. The short version?

After 2 and a half years ttc, one and a half years of working with a fertility specialist, 4 IUIs, 3 IFVs, 1 FET, 1 8w m/c, with some ICSI, PGD and a fairly recent chromosomal dx thrown in for good measure, I'm currently (and cautiously) 5w3d pregnant.

With very high betas this time, I'm sitting around, twiddling my thumbs until my May third 7w1d ultrasound.

In the meantime, I'm playing with my two boxers who are the loves of my life... (oh, and of course my husband, III, too. :) ) and trying to increase my knitting expertise, all while teaching eighth grade and dealing with the day-to-day living.

You sound like a fighter, you have been through a lot of crap but pick yourself up and keep going. I admire you. I wish you a very sticky pregnancy and healthy baby.

Happy ICLW (#70)

Cautious congrats on your new pregnancy! Crossing my fingers and praying for good luck.

Are you new to knitting or just trying to expand your abilities? Have you checked out Ravelry? I have found so many great patterns there.

Seriously hoping that this all progresses well and this baby sticks on through. I understand you being cautious - i dont know how im gonna be if i get pg again. So hard especially when you know having all those symptoms is a good sign but not necessarily a 100% confirmation that everything is okay. So here's sending you lots of positivity that everything is going to be a-okay. Hugs.
