Busy, Busy, Busy

Life has been so busy this week, I've barely had time to take a breath.  Work was super busy on Monday and Tuesday this week and both days I had night meetings that lasted until after 9 PM.  So basically that was like working 12 hours days.  So far I'm really enjoying this new position, but I'm afraid I'll be exhausted by the end of the week.  Today I was able to come home a little early which was nice.  Tonight I don't have anything scheduled, so I'm hoping to just catch up on blogs, clean a little, and relax with some TV shows I have saved up on the DVR. 

Luckily since I've been so busy with work I haven't had much time to stress out about this pregnancy.  I'm sure I've mentioned on here before that I'm a huge overthinker.  I've tried to not do this (I even read a book called "Women Who Think too Much" which offered suggestions on how to avoid overthinking) but it's really easier said than done.  But amazingly these last 3 days I've been totally calm and relaxed about the whole thing.  I know that it's still super early and something terrible could happen, but I'm just trying to focus on how incredibly blessed I am to be pregnant at this moment. 

I don't think I've said much about my job before, but I work for a very well-known non-profit organization and work in the department that oversees our product sales programs.  Our biggest and most important sale (the one that basically funds our entire organization) runs from the very beginning of January through March.  I realized (almost immediately after seeing that positive test) that my EDD for this pregnancy is January 1st.  This would mean that I would miss the entire sale for next year.  Yikes!  I'm sure my boss won't be thrilled about this, but again, it's not really bothering me.  I know that moving forward with treatment at this time was the right decision for J and I.  We didn't know how we would respond to treatment or how long it might take for a pregnancy.  Plus, it's just work - I can't put my life on hold because it might upset someone at the office.  Wow - I don't think I've felt this sure about a decision in a long, long time.  I'm usually constantly worrying about how other's will feel, what they will think, and what I can do to make things easier on them.  Maybe not caring so much about what everyone else thinks in part of getting older :-D

I had my Beta #2 today and my RE called herself to tell me that everything was still looking good.  She said it was over 900, she didn't give me the exact number.  I scheduled my first ultrasound for Wednesday, May 18th.  So now, I'm just focusing on being relaxed and incredibly thankful for these next few weeks.  Thanks again for all your support and well-wishes.  It really means more to me than I can put into words. 


  1. Beautiful beta again!!! Hope work allows for a little more much needed rest for you, a Mommie to be!!! :)

  2. CONGRATS!!!
    I've just started following via Amanda at "Our Fertility Journey".

    I'll be following your journey and keep you in my thoughts and prayers! Your journey gives me such hope as we are starting Clomid this month. We are excited and nervous, since we are doing the Clomid with our OBGYN and we will not be monitored. We are optimistic! The hubby has flying sperm, LOL!, so we are hoping I can give him more eggs to chase down!

    I'm so excited for you! I can't wait to post my BETA's..

  3. Awesome beta!! I hope you don't get too worn out at work! Busy lady! But it's good that you have a distraction :-)

  4. What a great beta! You seem to be in such a good place right now, I'm so happy you're able to stay calm and focused. Hoping the 18th comes quickly for you!
