Sharing Big News About a Little Embryo

Prepping for nightly injections

Even before Nick and I started trying to have kids, I would sometimes imagine the insanely happy moment of seeing two lines appear on a stick, then conjuring up a clever way to surprise him with the news. But after years of trying, infertility and then IVF have transformed getting pregnant from something I once viewed as encapsulated in a single moment into a process defined by so many points along a journey, each point with its own different odds of either heartbreak or advancing to the next step. And at each point, the only thing you can really do is hope.

After we completed egg retrieval last year, one of the next crucial points was the embryo transfer, followed by an anxiety-ridden wait to find out if it implanted successfully. Although I kept telling myself to keep my hopefulness in check based on probabilities, the truth was I felt like I had poured everything I had, both emotionally and physically, into that single embryo.

While in a cab earlier this month, we finally got that phone call from the IVF nurse with my blood test results, and she uttered news we’d been hoping to hear for so long:

“You’re pregnant!”

I remember barely breathing, as Nick and I just sat there blankly. It was like we were both brimming with joy, yet neither of us wanted to let it out in case it might not be real or it might not last. But when I looked over and saw a tear well up in his eye, it really started to hit me. And with each day and each doctor’s appointment, it’s becoming much more real. 

I’m now about 9 weeks along, which I know is a little early to share by traditional standards. I’m feeling especially anxious, since infertility has made it hard for me to trust my own body to do the things it’s supposed to do. However, this journey has taught me to find strength in knowing you’re not alone and knowing others have experienced and felt the things you have and more — especially when the outcome is not certain. It’s also shown me that things don’t always happen how you expect them to, and there are many different paths to get where you’re trying to go.

Even though this road didn’t unfold how we’d imagined, we couldn’t be more grateful and so very happy to have made it to this point. Thank you to each one of you who shared hope, positivity, and encouragement thus far, and we’re so excited to continue sharing this next chapter with you!

    Hi Jean,
    Congrats! I am so glad for you and Nick!
    I am in China and also want to do IVF in the states. Can you tell me which hospital you do that and the cost? Or Which hospitals are good at IVF in the USA?

    Thanks

    Wish best

    I’ve followed your blog sporadically, but I’m so happy for you! Congratulations!!
    May your pregnancy be a joy, your baby be the healthiest little squiggler, and your cravings always be in reach (mine was cold water, easy as anything)

    May I recommend four books which I found indispensable?
    For now:
    Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Newborn: lots of information about what’s going on, presented in a factual manner
    The Birth Partner: if you want to learn SO MUCH about late stage pregnancy and childbirth. Seriously helpful for me and for my husband.
    For later:
    The Happiest Baby on the Block: learn those 5 S’s. Have your husband learn those 5 S’s so he can look like an expert baby whisperer. We even brought a portable white noise machine in the hospital to make the transition home a little easier.
    The Wonder Weeks: gives some time periods you can expect baby to be super fussy/clingy/angry. Incredibly helpful to be a little prepared once you get the hang of it. It’s not always teething! Sometimes the world is just SO INTENSE for a baby’s changing brain.

    Congratulations!

    As of right now I am in my 1.5 weeks of 5 day transfer and the wait is hard and the past few days I end up with a lot of cramps and today saw light pink discharge. I’m just 2 days from the blood test day and I’m getting cramps, pink discharge and even major lower back pains. I can’t help but think something may have happened to the embryo and I don’t even know if it’s growing since I can’t see nor feel it. Im just afraid and don’t know how to prepare for when the results comes out when I go in for a blood test. This is absolutely very hard and first time going through IVF.

    Reading your post made me feel a bit better and made me smile the fact you got through it all and you’re pregnant! Congratulations Jean!

Although I’ve been paying close attention to you for more than a year, even my English is not good. But to see you have a successful pregnancy, I was surprised and happy. To be sure, in the coming months, you will still be a confident mother and a hardworking attitude, as you did wait for a long time … I am also a petite girl, but In life, but not enough confidence, when I see you and wendy that kind of confidence and honesty brought about by my heart is touched. I want to learn from you myself. For their own good, beautiful, to life and to change. I was married when I was 23 years old,eat a lot of Chinese medicine To get pregnant , But we always want a second child, a blink of an eye my son has 10 years old, in order to pregnancy again, also made a lot of efforts, or infertility, this year we finally Decided to do artificial conception, and find a suitable hospital, this next half year will be inspected.

    oh, I might have suggested Bar Method before i knew you were preggers but my experience was it didn’t help me. The issue with pregnancy is that your stomach is trying to expand and BM is trying to tighten your tummy. I felt a weird snap and stopped, then has trouble getting a refund for a pack of classes there. I think for me during pregnancy (only once), I would let me tummy expand and not try to counter than. I’m also petite so you need as much room in there as possible because our torsos are shorter and most newborns still come out 6-8 lb regardless of mom’s size. Mine was 6#14 and I’m a size 0/00/25. So rest up, eat well, take your vitamins, and take a nap when you need to. Line up those maternity sponsors!

I have followed your blog for over a year, reading old posts and using your advice to update my work wardrobe (recently entered the workforce out of college). I am happy to say that I am now known as being very well put together! I am not married yet, but I do want to be a mother too, and I didn’t like many of the maternity outfits I saw growing up, so I was really hoping you would enter motherhood and “show the way” style-wise, since you have helped me learn how to put together outfits for work, casual, vacation, workout, wedding, etc. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers, and cannot wait to see you embark on the next chapter of your life in style!

    Jean and Nick, I’m so incredibly happy for you both. I read your article titled “Trying is trying” and I was praying for you both to be blessed with good news soon. I am a mother and having children is one of the greatest blessings in my life. One piece of unsolicited advice, make time to rest, take naps, and read a book it really helped me to relax and enjoy my pregnancies.

    Jean! I am so excited for you and Nick ! I feel hopeful and I am going through the second thing and waiting for my next appointment for my pregnancy test. I started to share my IVF stories and feel relief as people seem very excited to learn that I am trying. I used to think that going through IVF made me feel like a failure at doing what woman should be able to do, but infertility is more common than we think. But wanting to become a parent shouldn’t stop us.

    Best wishes to you and your growing family! Looking forward to your maternity style posts!

    CONGRATULATIONS!! I am so excited for you. I am 2 weeks ahead of you at 11 weeks. I had a hemorrhage at 5 weeks that was terrifying. I was on bedrest, then pelvic rest, and was very stressed out. I ended up telling people like my neighbors much earlier than I would’ve- and Im so glad I did. In return I got so much support and didn’t feel so alone. I hope that’s the same experience you’re getting after sharing your news a little “early.” I can’t wait to get outfit ideas from you!!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! I hope your little bean makes it! Our TTC journey has taken a few years too, though we got lucky with getting pregnant each time we were considering moving on to IUI or IVF. Lost our #1 at 10 weeks due to a missed miscarriage but I’m now 20 weeks pregnant with #2 and so far so good. It’s been a little bit of a struggle finding good petite maternity clothes – I look forward to seeing future posts on this!

    Anyway, the anxiety is hard to let go when you’ve had such a difficult time, but no matter which detours have happened or might happen, I hope your path will lead to a rainbow baby. Our due date is the exact anniversary of the day we found out about the loss of #1, so everything has a way of working out. 🙂

    Congratulations!! So happy for you both. I can relate to so much of what you said in your post.

You’re glowing while I’m a constant shade of green. I hope you feel as good as you look and that you’re able to enjoy all the wonderful milestones ahead. I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing all your new style choices. 🙂 xoxo

    As the proud of mama of twins who were carried by a dear friend after three years of infertility treatments and failed IVF cycles (she’s truly an angel for doing what she did for us), I had to comment to say that your honest and open conversations about this process are so refreshing. I know as we went through our almost decade long struggle, it felt so isolating and there were rarely opportunities to hear others express the same feelings and emotions. You are giving a voice to many who may not have others to turn to. Our little miracles just turned one on Saturday (they share their birthday with their miracle mama who carried them!) and though that road was long, bumpy and often complicated beyond measure; seeing them happy, healthy and loved truly has healed those wounds. Congratulations!!! So very, very happy for you!!

    Dear Jean,

    You are beautiful inside out and your journey to this stage has been heart warming. In my culture, such joy is kept, traditionally, under wraps for as long is possible due to superstition so nothing untoward happens or avoid any possible negative vibes . But the spirited soul you are ( bless you) sharing and giving so freely I know you will be the best parent one can be. Until the day you two have the blessing cuddled up in your arms I will keep you in my prayers and may the lord keep you in his thoughts.

    I can’t believe this.. I used to be a cynic when it came to virtual world but I am just as happy on reading your news as I was when my sister announced the impending arrival of both my nephews.

    As a small Asian woman also living on the east coast (in Canada), I’ve been following your Instagram and blog for awhile. Your IVF post hit right at home- we also did IVF in the summer and the first round only had one blastocyst which didn’t take. Just going through round 2 now!

    Can’t wait to see all the stylish suggestions for maternity clothes, it would be great to see clothes from regular stores and how they can be used for maternity rather than buying all new stuff.

    All the best xo

You are a very beautiful and elegant and I could not imagine that your pretty photos on Instagram are not just ordinary photos. Who new you are such a gentle but strong person! Your story encourages me and now I think I should stop being coward. I am very happy for you and for your family in general.

When we decided to try for one last time, I had happened to read your previous post on the blog and Instagram where you mentioned the headstands. I tried it and it could be what helped get pregnant. I will never know, but I wanted to say that since that day I love you and thank you even though I don’t know you or have ever commented on your posts.

    Congrats Jean. I was in tears reading your post because I experienced infertility myself. It was a tough journey that felt like riding a roller coaster. After so many failed attempts, finally I am holding my precious little one in my arms with a successful IVF. And all the efforts and emotions are totally worth it!! Soon you will have your cute little one too! Congrats again!

  337. Hi Jean – congratulations to you both! I’ve been waiting anxiously for your good news announcement since the day I saw your post about your IVF journey. I, myself, am also on that journey and while I do not wish anyone having to go through this…it’s comforting to read about stories of women such as yourself and your struggles with infertility. It truly made me feel less alone so for that, thank you for sharing! Wishing you both an effortless and safe baby journey for the next 7 months. Please continue to keep us all updated.

    Congratulation Jean! I’m so happy for you and your husband!!! This is excellent news. I hope your pregnancy will be a good one, hope the embryo will grow each day, hoping your body will be able to handle the morning sickness/nausea days ahead.
    I’ve been following your blog quietly for the last 3 years or so. I’ve tried to copied many of your fashion style and advices as well. Once again, congrats!

    I AM SO PROUD AND SO HAPPY FOR YOU, JEAN!!!! Remember that you are a fierce woman, and with Nick at your side, you can get through this. Motherhood is not an easy road from what I can tell, but it is worth it. Your baby will be absolutely gorgeous, and you’re gonna be a great mom. You are a queen, remember that. And also remember that you’ve been a great role model and support to other mothers and mothers-to-be. You aren’t alone, and you’re courageous and brave to share your story with the world. Thank you, and REJOICE BECAUSE YOU’RE GONNA HAVE THE CUTEST LITTLE KID EVER (because let’s be real, you and Nick are a gorgeous couple).

      I am so deeply happy for you. You seem to be so nice and sweet, you’ll be wonderful parents. I am a mom of a 2 year old boy, and I wish you all the joy that it brings, hang in there. Pregnancy is difficult for everyone so dont panic everytime there is anything. You will be fine, am sure. Just stay positive and in a few weeks you’ll be reassured when seeing your little one in your arms. Sorry for my english. Lots of love from north africa xx
