    Congratulations! Also, I think it's fine that you are telling your close family (as defined by you) - for two reasons:
    1. When TTC, it feels like you've already been keeping it to yourself for months and months, so it's much harder to wait even longer to share, than if you had gotten pg in one try
    2. If you do miscarry, you will want and need their support.

    The wedding was 4 years ago. Can you believe it? It feels like simultaneously the longest and shortest 4 years of my life especially since I got sick only a few months after we got married!

    Still positive this morning. After trying for so long, I don't think it's sunk in. I don't think I'm going to accept it as real until the fertility clinic calls me with a positive blood result. And maybe not until my first ultrasound.

    Having sisters-in-law who are legitimately two of my best friends has been everything through this process. They've been with me on every up and down and everything in between. All 3 of their combined pregnancies were complicated and I was with them as much as possible during that time so this is really just a continuation of that. And then my actual best friend who has been with me at a lot of my appointments - leading to a lot of confusion since he is most definitely not the baby daddy lol.

    My father is coming down today to stay with us for a few days. Now I have to hide it from both him and Mr R. I think Mr R is starting to suspect but is not getting his hopes up. He's noticed that I've almost completely cut out pop and I had to come up with a plausible excuse for why I'm not taking some of my meds. (I have a list of meds I was to stop immediately upon a positive test.) This is getting trickier but this is a challenge I will gladly take! :smile:

    Oh my goodness I just saw this thread. Was going to post my infertility story then jumped to the end. I remember you from years ago and even though I don't post much I feel like you're an old friend who I am so happy for! I'm sending positive thoughts for a successful pregnancy and healthy baby.
