I feel so blessed right now

I am truly overwhelmed by the incredible levels of support and encouragement from people who read this blog, from people on the nest, from my wonderful friends, from my family, from my husband (who, when he says anything to the baby, I feel a tingle go through my body) and, well, from everyone who knows our story! The comments on here and the emails I have received over the last couple of days have been nothing short of amazing!! I cannot believe how many people are praying for us and waiting for the next set of results.

Which leads me to today's beta:

Beta #1 at 11dp3dt = 33 (Wednesday)
Beta #2 at 13dp3dt = 87 (Today)

Yea!! For those who don't know, they look for your beta to double every 48-72 hours, but, we really want them to double in 48 hours. Mine doubled in 34 hours! This is the first time my beta has ever actually done what it's supposed to do and doubled within the appropriate time frame!

Because the numbers are still on the low side, they're bringing me back on Tuesday for a 3rd beta. Fine with me!!

I still have some irrational fears of problems (well, with what we've been through, maybe they're not really so irrational), but, as of today, I am pregnant and everything is progressing as it should and, for that, I feel so incredibly blessed!

Congratulations!!! I laughed when I read about peeing on the stick. I did IVF and even after they said I was def. pregnant, I peed on a digital stick everyother day for probably a month, until my husband said enough as they add up - but it reassured me I was still pregnant, so I know the feeling. But enjoy each day because today is a GOOD day!! Your DREAM has come true, and it's such an awesome feeling to us women who wanted this so badly. Get lots of sleep and good luck on your third beta!

twondra said...
