My news...

First of all, the MOST important things, I want to thank Lauren, Stephanie, Tracy & Mahlon for their tireless effort on me. Lauren and Stephanie are THE best nurses EVER; Tracy is THE best anesthetist EVER; and Mahlon is the best embryologist EVER. They kept me calm and laughing and they are THE best! This award goes to THEM!

And...the news is...I AM PREGNANT! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! If you open your windows you can probably hear me screaming!

Lauren called me at 11:25 am!!!! I was NOT expecting the call this early! I looked at my phone and about hyperventilated! Lauren is the jokester...ALWAYS putting my nerves at ease and making me laugh through every procedure! She was asking about Matt (he is easy to pick on) and had me laughing on the phone.

She said they had all been waiting on my bloodwork to come back so they could see...and they called me immediately!!! AHHHH! Thank you, Lauren, Tracy, Stephanie & Mahlon, for looking for my results and calling me IMMEDIATELY!!!!!

She also said my qHCG number was 360. THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY! They were looking for a number between 50-100 and it was 360! I asked Lauren what that meant and she said potentially there could be two babies!!!!! We won't know that until the ultrasound. That has yet to be scheduled but it will be probably around March 17th.

I am blown away and SO THANKFUL. Thank you for all the prayers!!! God deserves ALL the glory in this. He is so merciful and I am so honored He has allowed me to do this.

I will be THRILLED to pieces to throw up EVERY DAY. However, if I am one of the lucky ones and don't get the "sickness" I will take that too!

You don't know me, but I went to school with Matt. I have been following your blog for a while now and I was so happy to hear your news!

I will be praying for all of you!

Tracy said...

YEAH!!!!! We kept checking the lab ALL morning waiting so we could call you! We couldn't help but rag on Matt! You guys had us laughing all morning the day of your retrieval. Couples like you make my job the biggest joy on earth and news like this never fails to warm my heart! God is great indeed!!! I can't wait to hear about your ultrasound (we will probably all be standing outside the door!!). I will have to add you to the kids' blogspot page so I can stay abreast of your pregnancy! Enjoy every minute of it!

360 sounds great! I've been thinking/praying for you these last few days and I know you must be relieved!!! God has been so faithful to me this week- I'll fill you in later, but He's so good!

Rest in His arms today girl!
