Hello, babies!

Positive! It’s positive. My FRER. I caved. I tested. I am so happy! You’d think after how many times the second line has happened for me I would be more cynical and breath-holding, but I just know that they have both attached and are doing well. After all the connecting we’ve done for the past few months, they are home.

When I told DH, he was like: “That’s so weird since you don’t really have any symptoms.” Hahaha, babe. He’s known I was pregnant ever since 3dp transfer when I stopped in the middle of rolling a meatball, dropped my forehead on the table and said, “I don’t feel so good.”

My “morning” sickness has been most-all-moments sickness ever since the big upchuck, which I think was my body’s way of telling me in astonishment that two little specks of new life were embedding inside.

I was lucky enough to meet a living angel here in LI, the same friend who offered us the Dwelling Place at Cchristmastime, I’ll call her Kara, and like magic she appeared in my home today and immediately began to do things like wash my husband’s laundry and make a giant batch of chicken noodle soup. Who is this girl? How did I get so lucky as to cross paths with her? She walked up and down the streets of my neighborhood with me (my desperate attempt to combat nausea by doing something other than watching Cosmos on the couch, the same two episodes, over and over). But of course even while it causes serious discomfort, I love the nausea and am so grateful for it. And am overwhelmingly grateful for Kara. She’s truly one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever known.

I caved and tested because the nausea has me a wee bit worried. I haven’t thrown up again, but it is difficult to eat very much. I wanted proof that I was pregs so I can ask my nurse if she thinks one of those anti-nausea medications is in order. But maybe I just need a little time to figure out what to eat, when, and how much.

Thank you warmly for all of your positive suggestions and sentiments over the past few days—I can’t express enough how calming it is to feel your positivity during this sensitive time.

Back to bed for me—for us! Oh, life, please be careful with our hearts. I love them so much already.
