We are................

PREGNANT!!!!! Yes that is correct, I have been wanting to tell on here for a while, but wanted to wait until we had the first ultrasound. I have had 3 positive bloodworks and then 3 positive sticks. Lane told me no more tests, but I have just been scared something bad would happen until I talked to one of my bestest friends and she reminded me that this is in God's hands now and He is in control of everything. So I put my complete trust in Him and we will see where this goes.

We had our first ultrasound today and I had ants in my pants all day. We had our little scare a couple of weeks ago with the bleeding and cramping and everyone thought for sure we lost one of our embryos, so that is just what we pictured. Our numbers weren't to high and then they didn't double and all of that so they thought one of them were gone and the other was picking up steam. We get to the hospital and go back and they said well lets just start with a belly ultrasound, which I was thankful for, b/c I was sick of the vaginal ones to be quite honest. The tech said oh there is baby and then said and there is baby #2. WHAT?!?!?! Are you kidding me? Lane and I just looked at each other and were in disbelief. His face was priceless asking are you sure?, is this for real?, what? I am still not sure if it has sunk in yet to be honest. This is the greatest Christmas present I could ever ask for. TWINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still can't wrap my head around it. We got to see their hearts beating, one was at 144 and the other was 143 and I am 7 weeks and 1 day. Still aren't posting this on FB yet, want to wait until about 12 to 15 weeks if I can hold it in that long, but our due date is August 15th. So here are a few pics of what has been going on the last few weeks. Thanks to all for your prayers . We are so blessed. God is good!!!

7 days post transfer, line is light but it is there. woo hoo!!!

Fireman Christmas Party

So last night was the annual Mishawaka Firefighter Christmas party. It usually entails the guys acting crazy and karaoking, but for the last 2 years it has been really mellow. We had dinner at Reggio's and then went to someone's house after for a few hours. I wasn't feeling in the dress up mood and feeling fat, so I opted for the black tights, long sweater and as my friend Kaley would say Peter Pan boots. I am always excited to go and hangout with my girlfriend Mo and we said ok we have to get lots of pictures. So I got out my brand new memory card for my camera and we were on our way. Mo sends me a text on the way saying she forgot her camera, but no problem I have mine. As I pull my camera out it says memory card error. Whoever in the world would think to check that, obviously not me. So to say the least we got one picture, which all in all is pretty cute, but I wanted more to post. We had a great night and thankful for all of the friends I have made from the department.

Beta #3

So we just got back from Ft. Wayne after a long 2 day wait to see what our numbers had done. Me being Mrs. Pessimist I was always fearing for the worst, when everyone else around me is positive, thank goodness. Well my number the other day was actually 423 and today it was 824, which is wonderful. My progesterone was over 300, which is unheard of and also a huge problem I have had in the past. It at one point was only 1, horrible!!! So things are on the up and up for us. The doc will keep a close eye on us and we will have our next test on Dec. 28th. I can't wait!!

So this week has been stressful and I am trying to not make it that way, but it is hard!! Sunday I was suppose to get my first HCG level drawn, but Friday at work I started cramping really bad and bleeding. I was a hot mess. Doc still wanted me to come in Sunday for my level so I did. It needed to be at least 50 and it was like 280 so that was great!! I went today to get my level rechecked and it needed to go up by 66% to show things were working properly. Well it only went up 53%, so now I have to go back to Ft. Wayne again Thursday and get it checked again. They said that it wasn't good or bad. Gotta love the medical field. I looked at Lane and said can just one thing go right please?!?!?! It is so frustrating, you are so happy then sad, then happy and sad. It is an emotional rollercoaster. So please pray my numbers Thursday are better than today and we will go from there.
