I'm a new graduate from The One Thread over in TTC, and I'm so excited to be here! We started ttc in October, tried for two months, and then had to take two months off due to an ovarian cyst. We just tried again and it worked! I got my
yesterday, and then had a beta this a.m. (13/14 dpo), and it was 227. So, I'm definitely pregnant! I'm really in shock because I thought this month was a bust (whereas every other time we've ttc'd I've been *convinced* I was pg). I'm due Novemeber 13/14, but we'll be telling people Thanksgiving cause I'm sure I'll go late.
We we fortunate to be able to use the same donor this time around as we used last time, so this baby will be a full-sibling to our boys. We were getting close to running out of sperm, so we're really relieved to not have to worry about that right now.
I can't wait to get to know you all and share this journey with you! We, like many of you, are planning a home birth (possibly a water birth), and are just generally hoping to have a completely different experience than we did last time (we wanted a homebirth then too, but couldn't find anyone who would help us with twins, and ended up with a traumatic c-section), pregnancy, birth, etc!
Congratulations to all of you!!
