Well after 3 positive blood tests, 4 ultrasounds and half a dozen peed on sticks with a pink line, it’s finally safe to say Johnston #4 is making his or her debut. And no litter this time. Our gamble with the last 2 embryos has resulted in one singleton who is growing and developing right on track!
I think there is equal fear and excitement this time around as it does feel like we survived a plane crash and are now getting back on the plane knowing its the only way to the beautiful destination that awaits. I wish there was some universal code that after dealing with a horrible tragic event, one is somehow exempt for life. Yet I know that is not the case and go into each ultrasound with one eye closed and wishing there was a complimentary basket of Xanax nearby.
We look forward to meeting New Baby sometime mid February. I’ve heard rumors that some women take their babies home right after giving birth so we’re hoping those rumors can be true!
Thought I’d add a nice little profile pic. I’m biased but I think New Baby is pretty cute already!
