It's Official!

I'm still in shock, but Friday's beta was 120 and Sunday tested at 290. Whoo Hoo! We really truly feel so blessed and still can't believe the good news. We had prepared for the worst after discovering our embryos weren't strong enough to freeze and it seemed like this just wasn't going to happen on the 1st IVF attempt.
We'd love twins, but ALL we are praying for is a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby!!! Because we're being treated for male infertility our dr. said that I won't be high risk if we get through the next couple of weeks and everything is normal. That surprised me. Somehow I thought all IVF pregnancies were high risk!
I go in on the 2nd for a pregnancy ultrasound and a few weeks later for the heartbeat ultrasound. Meanwhile, I've lucked out and suffer from the enviable 24 hour morning sickness syndrome! Gingersnaps and 7UP are quickly becoming my best friends!
Thanks to all the wonderful people who have been encouraging and praying for us on this crazy journey to "pregnancyland"!!!


  1. I am so happy for you! I find it's not just the morning sickness that plagues us, it's the constant anxiety that adds to the nausea. Can't wait for your ultrasound.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! I knew it would happen for you. This is so exciting and I can hardly wait for the ultrasound update. Post those pictures! You will be awesome parents and I hope too that you have twins. Well, I can't think of anything better to get sick over than a baby or two. (lol) You are doing great, keep up the good work. Everything is going to be just fine.

    Hugs and blessings,

  3. Congratulations from a fellow first timer in IVF success :) Enjoy !
