I can’t believe it but I’m pregnant! I never, ever test before my beta but I just had this feeling so I took a test. Imagine my shock when it was positive. The next day I took a digital and it said yes! I was in complete shock and was really worried for my beta.
On Thursday I had my first beta. My nurse was off from work with an emergency but she wrote me at 8:25 to call her. At 8:35 she couldn’t contain herself and e-mailed me with my number-221! It was positive. She then wrote an hour later and told me she called in to their weekly meeting, screamed my name and number, and they all did a group hug for me. I love my clinic.
I went back on Saturday for a second beta and it went up to 541. My husband and I are in disbelief. I’m also scared to death and keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. I have to call my nurse tomorrow to schedule our first ultrasound but it’s looking like it will be January 2nd.
I’m cautiously excited but I need to see the ultrasound before I really start jumping for joy. Of course, I know that the first ultrasound doesn’t mean everything as I had a miscarriage right after seeing the heartbeat of our first pregnancy. But for now it’s a Christmas miracle.
We’ve come so far and have done so much to have this baby. My husband is already being cute and monitoring me. He bought lunch meat today and then got mad at himself because he told me I couldn’t eat it and he forgot. He’s been saying a lot of little things that make me think he’s done some research on his on.
So, please keep me in your thoughts that this is our rainbow baby. That this is the baby we’ve been hoping and praying for for years. That this is our take home baby.
