With the sonogram a week and a half away,
just wanted to get a feel for what you all think...


New numbers…

HCG…7778 …Did I hear her correctly? OMG!

I am officially meds free, so no more progesterone or estradiol! Just a prenatal vitamin cocktail for me in the morning.

We scheduled our sonogram for Feb 17th…I can hardly wait!  Can we fast forward please! I am still so nervous and hope that everthing will progress as it should, but so far so good!


Today’s HCG results…nuff said!!!! 

(Next check will be Friday)

The results are in…

HCG=359!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (meaning we’re PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!)


Of course, I am elated and can’t stop smiling and am so hopeful that this pregnancy will continue to progress the way it is supposed to.  However, I also feel nervous and unsure of the future of this pregnancy.  I have gotten a positive before, but it didn’t end so positively.  I will do my best to take this one day at a time, one blood test at a time, and one sonogram at a time.  Next blood test is on Sunday with the results on Monday…I have never looked so forward to getting stuck with a needle!

Everyone has been so supportive through this cycle and I want you to know that I could not have done it without your support! Please keep the prayers coming!


The second set of octuplets were delivered in California.  I can not imagine.

The babies range from 1lbs 8oz  to 3lbs 4oz…so tiny. I am praying that they continue to grow and develop.

She is planning on breastfeeding…okay??!? Good luck with that!


Back to life, back to reality…

Back to work today after taking 3 days off last week and having the weekend to take it easy following IVF transfer.  Although it will be good to keep me busy and keep my mind off of the upcoming beta, I wish I could stay home and continue taking it easy.  A preschool special ed teacher isn’t the most relaxing job, so I’ll do my best to remain stress free (haha!) and positive! Wish me luck!

And now we wait.

The wait is on…

We had 2 great blasts transferred and hope that both stick around for a while (9 months!).   

This cycle has been as good as we could have hoped for and as we headed to the transfer, we turned the radio on to hear the last bit of  “In the Arms of an Angel”…and that is just it.  It is up to Him now, and I have prayed and prayed that this is it.  

I am overwhelmed with everyone’s support during this cycle…from phone calls, texts, visits, and even cupcakes.  I hope you all know how much I appreciate the prayers and well wishes…I am so lucky to be surrounded by such an amazing family, friends…and, of course, blogger buddies!!!  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
