We are so incredibly lucky and blessed beyond what we could imagine. We have seen this baby's heartbeat two times (at 6 weeks and 8 weeks), and everything is going as well as possible.
As we get closer to the point where we will tell our friends, I feel myself becoming more confused about how to approach this pregnancy. I never, ever want to disrespect the fertility treatment process. I also never want to play into the "just relax" and "you just need a miracle" misconceptions. We conceived on a non-medicated cycle directly following two months of suppression and drugs for a frozen cycle. Did the frozen cycle help? Maybe. Were we on fertility drugs? No. Were we trying to get pregnant? Absolutely. Were we relaxed? Absolutely not...in fact, I was probably more stressed than ever as we tried to figure out whether we could afford to do IVF again.
When telling our family, we told them that it was a mixture of the effects from the frozen cycle and a lot of luck. I think that's the story I'm sticking with. I just hope we get far enough to have this problem!
