10dp5dt and Wedding Cake

FET #3 Update

Last March was our first wedding anniversary and we somehow forgot to have a slice of our wedding cake.  We went on a cruise to celebrate and it was right before we had started our first IVF.  Once we realized  we forgot it just seemed silly to have any.  Since we were just about to have our first IVF cycle I had said when I found out I was pregnant we would celebrate by having our wedding cake.  We didn’t expect that it would take long.  Maybe just one or two cycles.  That was almost a year ago.   This cake has been through a lot.  There is not much left of it because our freezer went after a storm last year and stinky fish melted onto the bottom half of the cake.  We salvaged what we could. 5 IVF cycles and 23 months later I am happy to say that  we will be having a slice of that cake today.  I got the call yesterday from my Dr. that I am officially pregnant!  My beta was 134 and she seemed extremely happy with this.  I will be going from beta #2 on Monday and if those numbers are good I will go back in a week from then for beta #3.  If everything looks good first ultrasound will be at 6.5 weeks.

    What a great first beta, especially so early! CONGRATS!

    I hope you enjoyed that cake! Just looking at the photo made me envious. STARVING OVER HERE eating nothing but whole foods. 😉

    Good luck on beta #2, but you won’t need the luck!

      I overindulged a little bit this weekend…kind of a celebration so I let myself enjoy. I am back to healthy eating today because my body does not like junk. Ugh. Feel Sick.

    YAY! This is awesome news!!! So excited and happy for you! I think it is so cute that you’ve been holding onto that cake for this moment…not matter how good the cake ended up being almost 2 years later thawed out from the freezer, I bet it was the best cake you’ve ever had! 🙂
