good G-d...i've been staying up...waiting for THIS LOVELY, GREAT, AMAZING, SPARKLING, FAIRY-DUSTED POST......the dog finally bailed and now i will join her and snoring husband and think of a day long ago i can recall with such clarity...and i could finally allow myself to listen to bette midler sing 'our song' http://youtu.be/iCgDgJsTR_w

this is so very special to share this with you...the road was long, the journey had twists and turns...from your lips to G-d's ears...thank you for sharing this with us...but it is your treasure forever.....

As your doctor said, YAHOO!!! Now comes the fun part ... symptoms, plans, worries and joys. I was pregnant during the holidays, and it's a pretty wonderful thing.

Just make sure to take the absorbent strips out of the pee sticks before enshrining them. The lines will remain, and not the odor.

and thank you lesley for your friendship and support of sarah and some pretty nifty timing of a visit...these things don't just 'happen'...y'all made one helluva memory. sweet dreams to you too

I'm so happy for you and looking forward to reading updates over the next eight months. Big Congratulations!

oh, yes. definitely a keeper :-) what a perfect story to read on a monday morning.

I'm so excited for you!!! I've been waiting all weekend for your good news! It's exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time. I remember trying not to be too happy at 5 weeks because it was still early (I'm 24 weeks now). But how can you not celebrate when the results have been negative for so long! All good things to those who wait. So, so happy for you!

I'm so excited for you Sarah. A HUGE congratulations. Thanks so much for including all of us on this journey.

Not disappointing at all - it's very exciting! I am so happy that this is finally happening for you, and can't wait to follow along on the next stage of the journey!

I've been secretly following your blog, and I feel as though you are in the position that I might be in in 5-10 years, so I'd like to offer my most heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS! It's a long road ahead, but you have determination and home, which give *me* hope for my own future.

Been following your blog for a while and can't believe I almost missed this!!! Damn friends getting married in far off places with no internet coverage....
Huge congratulations. Crossing my fingers and toes for you xx

CONGRATS!!! Most worthwhile things do not come easy. The sheer difficulty of what you have been through will make the outcome even that much more sweeter. I am extremely happy for you and will continue to pray that all goes well for the remainder of this part of the journey.

Just how wonderful did it feel typing those words "A good pregnancy"?? You must be in shock. still.

CONGRATULATIONS Sarah. Thanks for taking us on your journey. Can't wait to hear about your new travels as well.

High beta is good, although I think that high beta often means twins? I may be wrong...

Oh what a blessing. You will be in my prayers for good health for you and your baby. I have been following you for quite a while. Such good news to hear! Take care.

If by disappointing, you mean that you'll soon be face down in the toilet, then yes. This is a truly disappointing blog post.

Mac & Cheese may be due - pun intended. BEST. 1st TRIMESTER. MEAL. EVER.

Congratulations!!!! So happy for you. I too have been checking your blog like crazy waiting to hear if you got "official" news. You deserve every bit of happiness this brings you. also, you give me hope as i am single and 38 and approaching this same point. Thanks for giving me some inspiration and belief that it may work out. Can't wait to follow your journey.

Yahoo!!! Like many others, I've been following your blog for a while, and I've only posted a couple of times. You deserve every bit of this, and I couldn't be happier for you! Thank you for including all of us on your journey; I can't wait to follow it for the next (phoey, phoey - sound of spitting over shoulder) 35 weeks and then some!

congratulations!!!!!! many many many good thoughts coming your way. best wishes for health and happiness! :) love m.


CONGRATULATIONS! Words cannot express how thrilled I am for you. Wow. You are amazing and so deserving of this wonderful news. xo



Congratulations! This is wonderful news. I'm so excited for you.

Hooray! What marvelous news! Enjoy these wonderful days of anticipation!

surely bluebirds dressed you this morning and forest creatures cleaned and dusted your cottage in the land of enchantment...singing, bubbles, smiles

I am so thrilled to read this and to know that Lesley is there with you! Great timing indeed!

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
