I go back to the Dr on January 6th. I have been able to find the heartbeat with the Doppler daily so that makes me feel much better. The first trimester blahs are starting to let up. If I could just get rid of my cold/sinus infection/whatever it is I would be much better. Thanks again for all your continued prayers.
Please be sure to vote if you think we are having a boy or a girl. I think at this next appointment I should get the date that we will find out.

Here is a picture at 8 weeks 5 days.
Here is one at 9 weeks 5 days. Look how much more the baby has grown in a week!
I have another u/s done next Thursday. I will be 10 weeks 6 days for that one.

My u/s today was great! The baby is almost to big to see with the internal u/s. The tech made that baby mad and it moved all over the place. It was so cute! We got a great picture of the face, arms, and legs. I am going to try my best to figure out a way to scan them.
Tomorrow I go to the OB for the first time. I am glad to be getting back to him but I hope that he monitors me as well as the dr's in B'ham did.
Please continue to pray that everything progresses just as it should!
Also, some of you have wondered when my due date is, it is officially July 3rd!

I also am so happy to be back home. I do not like South Texas!! It is so good to be back where people speak English as a primary language! Three weeks was such a long time to be home.
I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

My flight leaves out of Atlanta at 10:00 in the morning. I will fly back the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and I go back to the dr that next day. Please pray that I have a safe flight and trip and that this baby continues to grow like it should.

For those of you wondering though, I am still going to Texas with work. I fly out on November 4th and fly back home the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I am really excited about going. I will be really busy which will help me keep my mind off of worrying about how things are going with the pregnancy. I am going to take it easy but I know that everything is in God's hand and he is in total control.
Please continue to pray that everything keeps progressing like it should.

Jason had to be there at 7:30 and I had my appt scheduled for 9:00. We got breakfast in between. The nurse calles us back and they tell me that they are going to do the iui, then do an u/s to check for follie collapse and fluid. So they did the u/s and the follies were still there and big.
She kept looking for fluid but could not find any. She told me that I might not have o’d yet but she wanted to get the u/s tech to take a look and see what she thought. So after about 15 mins the tech comes in and gets to looking and she is telling me what she is looking for. She focus’s in on one of the follies and starts kinda pushing on my belly to try to get a different look. Right then I ovulated!!! I saw it!!
Within like 10 to 15 seconds my follie went from 1.8 or 2.0 to nothing!! It was so cool. I feel like everything was timed just right.
The other follie had still not released but she said it probably would with in an hour or so.
I go back on the 21st for the beta. I am trying not to get myself to pumped up but I am really feeling good about this one. I might just get my twins!

I went this morning for my day 10 follie check. I have 10 on one side and 12 on the other. They are all pretty small at this point. I go back on Wednesday (day 13) and hopefully I will still have at least 2 good size follies.
I have enjoyed our break while we had it but I am also glad to be proactive again. I will do my best to keep you updated.

On the TTC front...we have decided to go back to the Re next month. I called and have everything set up so assuming I don't get pg in the next few weeks then we are back on the fertility shots and such.

On another note....Emma is back in the hospital. They got to go home yesterday with instruction to come back this morning for another billirubin/jaundice test. It was elevated enough that they want to keep her for 48-72 hours. This is not uncommon in preemies (they are considering her that since she was 3 weeks early). Basically she gets to get a sun tan under the lights.

I have an appt with the RE on Wednesday and mom is going to meet me there and then we will probably go to Tuscaloosa to see them. I am excited that I am finally an aunt and the mom is finally a Mimi.

We are doing pretty good. This m/c was not nearly as bad as the first one. Hopefully this one will be our last. I go back to the dr in May to move on with the program. Next step is fertility shots.
I am just very thankful that God is in control of this whole situation and he already knows the outcome. That gives me such peace!!

We had more blood work done on Friday (March 29th) and the beta level was 210. Everything seems good so far.
Our next appointment was on Tuesday, April 1st. We had another u/s. The tech thought we were farther along that I actually am so she was freaking out that she could not see anything. Once she realized that I was not that far yet (I was only 5 weeks and she thought I was 6 weeks) she said "oh, we are not really supposed to see anything yet." So, we had more b/w. The beta levels now were 892!!! It is really starting to sink in!!!
We pretty much told everyone after that appointment. We go back on Wednesday, April 9th. By then we should be able to see the baby and see how many there are!!
Day 14 arrives (Tuesday and Mom's birthday) and my temp, instead of dropping like it always has in the past on day 14, went up!!! I was very confused since I really thought I did not even ovulate. Well, there was only one way to find out, home pregnancy test.
I take the test and as I am finishing up I notice what appears to be a faint line. I can't really believe it. I am rubbing my eyes trying to focus to see if it is really there or I am just seeing things. At this point I need a second opinion. Jason was in the shower. I go to his bathroom and shove the stick in the shower and ask if he sees anything. He see the line too.
I am not getting too excited yet since I know it could be nothing. We call a friend that is a pathologist and ask if he can do a blood test to make sure. At 9:00 I go get the blood drwan and at 11:30 he calls and confims that we are pregnant!!!!
Here are the sticks that I took over the next few days. I already had them in the house and I really like seeing it turn positive. We called both the moms and told them but made swore them to secrecy.
We put in a call to the Re to let them know we were pregnant and to start me on the medicine needed to help me stay pregnant. We met with them on Wednesday for a consult and more blood work.

So now the game plan is to start injections in late March. I am really excited. One of the "side effects" of the injections however is multiples. I would LOVE to have twins but anything over that is really scary. I will take whatever God gives me. I know he is in control!!! Jason is scared we are going to have a litter! :) I hope that does not happen but whatever does happen will be for the Glory of God!!
