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!
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!!!!
So excited for you! Congrats again! It stuck!
Thank you so much, yes, finally. 🙂
Ahhhhh! Yes! Best news EVER! What a fantastic number!!!! Oh man, I was so nervous today when I didn’t see a post! HUGE sigh of relief! Congratulations, my friend! You’re PREGNANT!!!
Thank you Amanda, we are so happy and feel relief right now. Yes, I feel like I can finally say “I’m pregnant”. It will happen for you soon!
Oh friend! What wonderful news!!
Thank you, keep me posted. 🙂
This is so wonderful! Congratulations!
That’s a really great third number!! Congratulations! I lost my sweet tooth too (and I had a huge one) and we had a little boy. Just my two cents!
My other girlfriend who had twin boys lost her sweet tooth also, my husband would be thrilled with a boy, I’m happy as long as baby/babies are healthy!!!
That is incredible news!! Congrats xxx
Thank you so much.
A wonderful Beta and wonderful news! I’ve been really hoping for you and that little growing embryo(s) over the past couple days.
Thank you so much! It was a stressful couple of days, but feeling much better now. 🙂
I am so thrilled for you… beyond thrilled, really! I just cannot believe what a special Christmas this is going to be for you! A stress-free holiday, full of anticipation, joy, and HAPPY TEARS!
Thank you, this will definitely be a special Christmas, much to celebrate this year!
Wonderful news!!! I am so happy for you. Xoxo
Thank you, we are thrilled! xoxo
I am so overjoyed for the two of you!!!
Regarding your sweet tooth…Don’t worry, it will come back.😉 Mine certainly has.
Thank you Sarah! It’s not completely gone, just not as strong as it usually is! 🙂
no sweet tooth?!! sounds like a martian baby! 🙂 so happy for you and this new adventure!
No worries, it’s not totally gone, just really liking salt right now. It’s not my baby if it doesn’t have a sweet tooth! 🙂 Thank you!
EEK!! Congrats! Seeing that positive pregnancy test and seeing a rising beta is such an indescribable feeling. Sending lots of hopes and prayers that this is it for you guys!
Thank you! Yes, it is, I’ve never ever been here, so it’s so exciting! xoxo
O.m.g…. You’re in my prayers! What a fantastic Christmas present for such a deserving couple…. 🙂
Btw, I craved salt my entire pregnancy. I was so into bacon, if I even smelt it I had to have it… Lol many hugs!!!!!!!
Thank you so much, we are beyond happy! Mmmmm…..bacon!!!!
I am beyond excited for the two of you! You have shown us to never lose hope and never give up on what you want. This is going to be a wonderful Christmas! Xoxoxoxo
Thank you so much, it’s still hard believe our wishes came true. Yes, a very special Christmas! xoxo
