Ultrasound Results...

Well I was wrong and so were most of you according to the poll on my sidebar.

We have ONE healthy baby growing in my belly right now !!
EEEKKK!!! I am so happy! The heartbeat was a perfect 138 beats per minute and he/she was measuring one day ahead. Due Date: November 09, 2011!!!

Now, since I won't have to show this post to my future twins, I can tell all of you a little secret that I have been holding in the past few weeks.

I AM SO FREAKING RELIEVED TO BE HAVING ONLY ONE BABY!!

I'm sure having twins (or more) is magical and everyone who has them loves them and wouldn't trade them for the world. However I am so glad that we get to have only one baby this time. I mentioned how petrified I was about having multiples before we started IVF but I've been very cautious to bite my tongue since getting our BFP. What's the old saying, "Beggars can't be choosers".Well that is exactly how I felt. Who am I, Infertile Aly, to say I don't want two babies (right now). Just take what you are blessed to be given and be happy.

Today at the ultrasound when the Dr said we have just one, I sat straight up and cheered. Omg, I was so excited! The idea of twins with a two year old was so overwhelming to me.  After my high risk pregnancy last time and going into preterm labor at 24 weeks, I can't imagine how hard things would have been with two babies in there. My body has proven that it can produce one healthy baby, why push it?

I had a million worries running through my head over the last few weeks. Some of them were silly but some were justified.

First up was, We also only want 3 children, so if it was twins this time that would have been it. I just wasn't ready for this to be my last pregnancy. This was a selfish worry, yes but still one of my worries.

Secondly, We already have all the baby stuff for one, with the exception of some pink stuff if it turns out to be a girl. Buying doubles would have been fun, but expensive. This was very silly of me, we are fortunate enough to be able to afford all of these things, yet I still worried about it.

 Thirdly, I also am confident that I will be able to breastfeed one again, which is something that would have been more challenging with twins. A challenge that I was worried I wouldn't be able to handle. I am only 7 weeks pregnant and already worried about the mommy guilt associated with not being able breastfeed hahaha!

I just feel like once we reach that magical threshold marking the end of the first trimester, I will be able breath a small sigh of relief and actually start to enjoy this pregnancy with out all of the added what-if's that come with pregnancy and life with multiples.

Please don't get me wrong, having multiples is an amazing miracle. One that I was very excited about when we found out we were pregnant with twins last pregnancy. Well God will never give you more than you can handle, and he has once again proven how well he knows me.

In other news, my RE released me to a regular OB today!! I called and made my first OB appointment for April 6th at 1pm. We will have another ultrasound then at exactly 9 weeks . :)

Hooray, I have been waiting for you to post the good news! Thanks for your honesty about twins. We have our first u/s later this week and I am alternately excited/ terrified about finding twins.

Jody said...

Hooray! Praying for a healthy pregnancy for you!

ifbyyes said...

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you!

Tina said...

Congratulations!!!

Erin said...

So happy the ultrasound was great!!

Travica said...

Whoohoo for a singleton!!

Stacy said...

Congratulations! How exciting! :)

Mrs. O said...

Yippie and congrats :)

Rochelle said...

Awesome! So glad you got to hear the heartbeat and see that miracle baby! And so very glad you're only having one! I am so worried that if this Clomid actually works, we'll end up with twins (since I know I ovulated two eggs on a natural cycle the one time I was monitored!) and since we're pushing it to have a baby during school, I can't imagine how twins would derail all that. So yeah, super, super happy!

Stopping in from ICLW...

This cracked me up! We were just talking about IVF #2 (which is only a blip on the horizon right now), and I said I would only want to transfer one because I don't think I would survive another set of twins.

Celebrating your ONE little peanut with you and wishing you a marvelous pregnancy! :)

Calmly Chaotic said...

Congratulations! I am so happy for you! I get the twin fears. I think it would be terrifying quite honestly to be pregnant with twins when you already have a 2 year old! I am pregnant with twins and loving it but can totally understand the fear of having multiples!

Miss Mac said...

Love the u/s pic and wish you a happy, healthy pregnancy with your little ONE:]

Stephanie said...

I already said this, but I am SO thrilled for you!

One happy, healthy baby... just perfect! Here's to a happy, healthy pregnancy!

Also, your baby is totally adorable! ;)

Lauren said...

Congratulations Aly! I'm glad the ultrasound went well :)

amiracle4us said...

Congrats Aly!!!!

Mrs. B said...

So Happy for you!!!!! Hopefully everything goes well, and you have a happy, healthy baby!

AP said...

Whew! Twins would scare me to death. A good (non IF) friend of mine just found out she is having twins and she is stressing about things like, "how do I get them both in the car?" Count yourself lucky!

thanks for your congrats. i am totally freaked out and in shock with a little bit of excitement thrown in as well!

Lora said...

Congratulations!!!!
there is nothing wrong with saying you know your own limits either, and having twins w London would have been very, very hard. I don't think anyone misunderstands what you are saying or thinks you aren't grateful :)

We love you guys!! Looking forward to 8 more months of cute belly pics!

Kristin said...

Wow, how exciting! Hoping and praying that this pregnancy is smooth sailing from here on out.

ICLW #36

Jessa said...

YAY!!! You have an adorable little bean in there! :)

mommyinwaiting said...

What a beautiful scan pic. I can't wait to see mine in two weeks time. Hope your pregnancy continues perfectly healthily.

A VERY happy ICLW.

Crossed Fingers said...

Congrats! I have to agree with you on twins, after going through the first few weeks with just one, I cannot imagine how hard it would be to have twins or more!

Fiona said...

Yay! :)

Ashley said...

Great news! I don't blame you on the twins, it has been way more difficult than I had ever imagined and I can't imagine it with a toddler. I'm so excited for your great u/s!

Tillie said...

So happy that you have a healthy baby in there!!!! Super exciting!! :)

iclw #173

Josey said...

Congrats on your healthy baby!

I'm also petrified that I'll end up with multiples (1 in 5 chance with the protocol I'm on). Eek!

ICLW#151

Stacie said...

So excited for you and you got what you wanted :-)

Ashley said...

So happy to hear that things are going smoothly and little bean is healthy!

and happy ICLW!
