Boy was that the longest weekend ever. Both my husband and I tried to put on our happy faces all weekend and act like nothing is wrong. We didn’t tell anyone anything because we had no answers and felt that there was no point to have our family worry along with us. Finally, Monday morning came around. It was April fools day; but no one was going to fool us! We were dying for some answers. We went in for our repeat ultrasound and this time there was finally a gestational sac there!!!!
(Both images of my uterus with the gestational sac)
We were both so excited, but we weren’t out of the woods yet. By five weeks, that sac should be showing something in it, but my sac was empty. Thankfully, my OB is amazingly supportive and positive and she told us so far these are all good signs and we should just relax and enjoy the pregnancy from this point forward. And that is what we did. That night we went and finally told my parents! It was such a relief to finally tell my mom. I’m so used to telling my mom everything…from my deepest secrets to something stupid that happens in my day. To hold back a week of being pregnant without telling her was rough.
How we told my parents: We bought two onsies; one for grandma and one for grandpa. Thankfully it was around Persian New Year, so we told them it was a belated Persian New Year gift for them. They were both speechless. Luckily Keyvan caught it all on film so one day we can show the little booger how his/her grandparents reacted when they found out (and yes we call our little one booger…I don’t know how it caught on but we didn’t like the typical peanut so we thought whats cute, round and squishy!!!)
