Pregnancy after Infertility ~~~~~The Emotional Journey

I thought I would start this thread as Im seeing many blessed future moms from the IF board successfully making it here to the preggo section . Some of them I am very much familiar with and some whom were once my cycle buddies. It doesnt matter how long we've been trying, how much emotional roller coaster we've encountered along the way, as we cry alone in silence going through a mixed bag of hopes and disappointments, but the reality is here, we are Pregnant .
For many of us who have experienced the ups and downs of infertility, it may be hard to believe that something is really 'going right.' Sometimes, it is hard to make the transition into the reality of pregnancy. There is always this fear that can make the experience difficult. Torn between the feelings of joy over the pregnancy and the fears of miscarriage.

Going to the IF clinic 3-4 times a month had become my monthly activity. And when I was finally switched to my OB, I had a very strange feeling that something isnt right. It was because, I am only seeing them once a month. Yes, we were in cloud 9 when we found out that I was pregnant but it didnt really sink in until we saw our baby's ultrasound. I am now 12 weeks 3 days and will be going back for my level 2 ultrasound this coming thursday for fetal screening. No more nausea but I am currently sick with cough and colds.
I am so happy to see those from the IF board here after their BFP and even those of you who were not from the IF board but had been TTC for a while and finally gotten pregnant. Congratulations!!! and I pray and pray that more and more ladies from the IF board will make it here sooner.

Re: Pregnancy after Infertility ~~~~~The Emotional Journey


First off, I want to say congratulations to you for making it into the 2nd trimester! Your post rang SO true to me, I don't think I could have chosen better words myself to explain the heartache we went through. After so many months went by w/ BFN after BFN (even after seeing the specialist for over a year), we were beginning to wonder if it would EVER happen for us. Now that it has, it's so hard to believe & we are so nervous that something will go wrong.
