Plain Jane has a family...now what?!?!?

After 3 years of infertility, now learning how to be a mom.

I'm like an abentee landlord.

I'm so sorry for not posting in such a long time. I think I've come to the point that all pregnant infertiles go through. I liken it to survivor's guilt. While there have been many wonderful announcements in the blogging kingdom as of late, there are still those lovely women who have been left behind. I want happiness for all of you whether it be pregnancy or adoption or surrogacy or whatever.

Don't get me wrong though, I'm thrilled that I've even been given the opportunity to be where I am. Everything is looking OK. During my 1st official OB visit, we had a u/s and everything was where it should be and measuring appropriately. We still had a heartbeat at 8w2d, I've had no spotting, and my nausea has arrived. Everything is sinking in slowly but surely. Maybe I'll actually feel safe to announce it to more people once the 1st trimester is over.

I have u/s pictures and am thinking about posting them here. I'd like to take an unofficial poll in my comment section for this post of whether or not you'd like to see them. I would be absolutely fine with not posting them, so you won't be hurting my feelings. Please be honest.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

    I'm so glad to hear eveything is going well. Maybe you could post your u/s pics as a link. Then people who were comfortable seeing them could click to view them. Just a suggestion.

    I was about to suggest Amanda's idea until I read her comment, so now, I will just second it. BTW, I think that it's really cool that you asked.

    Yes please - I'd love to see it. Glad to hear things are moving along happily and healthily (is that a word?).

    I'm glad to see you're ok. I would love to see the pictures (as links is a very good idea) but I will understand if you decide not to post them.

    I'd love to see the pics - the link is a good idea though. I did have to laugh at "abentee" though - took me a minute!

    I second (third?) the link idea. I would like to see them.

    I want to see those pics! Congrats!!!!

    I would also love to see pics. Your really sweet to worry about offending anyone, but a true friend would be so happy for you and would not feel anything but thrilled to see your U/S pic. The other type of friend is not worth having, my opinion only...
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Hugs from Lesley

    I'm SO SO glad to hear all is going well!
    Regarding the u/s picture, I like Amanda's idea of posting a link to it. That way those who are feeling fragile can still read your blog without seeing it if they don't want to.
    I think its really cool that you asked, by the way.
    If I'm ever blessed enough to be in your position, I'll be sure to do the same.

    Love to see pics! I'm really excited and happy that so many bloghers are pregnant at last. It makes me feel that it's possible!

    Oh honey,
    I'm a picture fiend! Yes! Bring them on. If you can easily manage to do a link, that would be great. I'm not sure if I'd know how to set it up, but I guess someone here in the Infertile Kingdom could help with that if you need it.

    Your story gives me hope that things will go well for me, too. I'm glad you updated. Take care, and don't keep us waiting too long for your next post!

    -D.

    I hear you on the feelings of guilt. I've been in a bit of a low spot, and I think that's one of the reasons.

    Love to see pictures!

    So glad to hear that all is well and the SH is gone. I can definitely resonate on the relief you felt after reaching that milestone. It does make it feel "safer" if that makes any sense.
    Hope your nausea isn't too bad. Take care.

    The link idea is a good one. I want to see the bean!

    Hugs,
