Dear Santa, What I want for Christmas…..

I just let out a huge breath of relief. The fertility clinic just called, I have been anxiously awaiting the results of my third beta for over 24 hours!!! The nurse said that our number looks great and that we can rest a little easier, our third beta results are 1803!!! First was 452, second was 691 (not quite double, making me into a ball of nerves) and third 1803. We will be able to schedule our first ultrasound at 7 weeks gestation, the week of Christmas!

Dear Santa-

I would like to see one (possibly two) healthy heartbeats for Christmas this year! I’ve been good! And so has Hubby!


In all seriousness, we are overjoyed that we have made it this far and hope and pray that everything continues very smoothly. I know my worrying won’t ever be over, it’s just my nature. But, today after receiving that call, I feel like I can breath easier, my racing heart has slowed, and I can finally say to myself “I’m pregnant!”

I’m still feeling relatively normal, sweets aren’t as appetizing to me as normal (I’m a huge sweet tooth), I get teeny waves of nausea and some very slight cramping, but overall, I feel pretty normal. My brain has been a little off, I literally put my hand on a stranger’s
a$$ thinking he was my husband yestereday. I was mortified, but my staff from my office said I probably made that guy’s day?!!!

Tomorrow will be the Christmas music program at our church, I’m excited to hear all of the Christmas songs and thank God for our many blessings!!!!
