And then....

Hello world. Yesterday was beta day. And the news was....fantastic.

hCG was 94.7  12 days post transfer. Our doc called us personally. She was thrilled. She's not the only one.

But it wasn't a complete surprise since we got a sneak preview from the best GC ever this weekend.


How beautiful is that?

And then we shed a tear or two and did a little happy dance in the kitchen. Its kind of been a kitchen dance party for the last few days.

So it looks like we are off and running! Our GC will be going back for another blood test next Monday just to make sure all is well.

And then we schedule an ultrasound. And then we figure out when a due date might be.

And then....



Sorry.  Couldn't resist.

And if you know any members of my friends and/or fam in real life**, mum's the word. We haven't shared any news yet, and probably won't until it's a little more solid and we can do it in person.

And then if you could just remind me to breathe every once in a while, that would be great.


**this obviously excludes those of you who are regular readers here. 

**not to mean that you, dear readers, also aren't friends in real life, but, you know what I mean, right? Don't tell my mom. Or my boss. At least not yet.

Wow! Those were the fastest five comments ever!

Thanks so much, friends. We are giddy, and not really believing it, but totally believing it, and trying to stay calm and collected and obviously not doing a good job of it. What? I'm supposed to go to work now? Jeez.

Fantastic news! We're all stalking you waiting for some results.

If you remember I like to keep stuff to myself, we didn't tell any real life people until 26 weeks, because we're freaks(by we I mean me and my husband).
