Alice

Thank y'all so much for the advice with my sweet SIL. I ended up calling my brother first to see what he thought. I was leaning towards calling her. They live in another state..so I knew I wouldn't see her for a while. So I called her after she was off of work and it was so hard. I couldn't even get the words out. I told her that we had our test today...and then I froze. She said and it was good. And I said yes..I am so sorry. Of course, she was overjoyed for me. But I could remember all too well that pain she was feeling too. I started crying. She kept saying I am so happy for y'all and I said I know you are, but I know I am adding to your pain...and I hate that. We hung up and Todd said that was the way to tell someone you love and is IF that you are pg. I quickly wanted assurance again from him that I did okay and didn't cause anymore pain then I knew I would cause already. He said I did fine. So now...please keep Alice..my sil...in your prayers. I know she is in pain..I know her pain...I can still feel that pain. And it sucks!!! It plain out sucks!!!

I am very hesitant to even feel like I am pg..and this is really happening. I feel like I am going to wake up and it will have all been a dream. It is really hard to not continue to worry.

And please keep Becca in your prayers today..she will find out her pg results today!!! I am crossing everything I have for her and saying some prayers too :D Love to all my sisters!!!

I'm glad that you figured out which way was best to talk to your SIL. I'm sure she's happy for you, but also sad for herself. Telling someone who's working through IF and not pregnant yet is always difficult, and even more so because you know exactly how she's feeling. I will definitely pray for Alice, and hopefully she'll be encouraged with what happened to you... It is really surreal when you get that positive BETA. It takes about 6 or 7 months for it to register. Sometimes I still cannot believe it has happened to me! I know you will have to fight worry, we all do, but enjoy this time...every minute of it. It's been a long time coming, and you've worked hard.
Love ya.

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS!! I just had a chance to catch up on everything that's been going on and was delighted to see your BFP!! So exciting!!

Secondly, you are an amazing SIL. You really should be commended for how wonderfully you handled that with your sister in law. Infertility is so hard, and it's odd how hard it is to be on the other side, the good side, after being on the bad side for so long.

I'm praying for you and your beautiful baby! Congratulations again. God is so good!!
