Such great news...

I am overwhelmed and thoroughly pleased today! I had another HCG this morning...and they called today at 2:50 pm and the number was 837!!!! It jumped A LOT this time!

Honestly, I had already convinced myself I was not pregnant and that I was ready to find out one way or another. I just couldn't believe it!

I lead worship at church and throughout worship last night I was gagging. I was having a hard time getting through it. As soon as it was over, I walked pretty fast to the bathroom and dry heaved several times. I didn't have anything really in my stomach and I was just queasy enough to dry heave. I have never been so excited to dry heave! LOL I still just told myself it was probably nerves for today's appointment.

Anyway, the number is 837!!!! Stephanie, our nurse, said that we were back up to where we needed to be and that we don't have to come back in for blood work (that means A LOT because it sort of puts me in the clear for this hurdle). I go in Tuesday, August 11th for an early pregnancy ultrasound. We will find out how everything looks, how many are there (which I am sure with my levels we are having just one), and we MAY get to hear the heart beat.

Thank you for all your prayers! We are beyond thrilled right now!

Hi! I'm SO excited for yall! Praise the Lord!

My Cousin Brandi told me about y'all tonight and I'm just so happy!
The Lord blessed us with our very own IVF baby March 31st 2009.
I went to Bigelow Assembly for many years and helped with the praise and worship prior to be going off to SAGU and getting married lol.

Congrats on this pregnancy and if there is anything I can do for you let me know.

PS I have 2 or 3 bottles of progesterone leftover (unopened) if you need those for your pregnancy--- although i hope you are one of the lucky ones and dont have to do the PIO in ur bum! oh and Vivelle dots. :-)

Feel free to ask me any questions :-)
