The Results Are In

Is the anticipation killing you??

I'm Pregnant! (We are pregnant!) I never thought those words would come out of my mouth (nor my fingertips). For years I have stared at negative pregnancy tests. I have scrolled past Facebook pregnancy announcements thinking, "must be nice, that will never be me". The group of women that originated on Baby Center all trying to conceive at the same time ("cycle buddies") are having their 2nd babies since we all started together. The last 3 years have been an absolute roller coaster with Brennan at the peak! I can't believe it's finally our turn.

I would never recommend that someone announce their pregnancy at 4 weeks along. However when we started this journey and started this blog I promise transparency. I don't know if I would be writing this post if it weren't for the hundreds of people praying with and for us. So please keep praying!! This is only the beginning.

Beta HCG (Quant) today (11 days after transfer 6 day embryo transfer or 11dp6dt): 119 
Next Beta HCG: Monday (goal of 357)
Final Beta HCG: February 29th
Ultrasound: 6-7 weeks - my husband will be in Ohio for work!! (same place he was when our daughter was born in South Carolina)

Please keep praying for our little snowflake to stick!

New favorite game:
Me: Brennan, what's in mommy's belly?
Brennan: A baby Me:
What's the baby's name?
Brennan: Baby Snowflake
Brennan: I have a baby in my belly (as she lifts her shirt for me to kiss her belly)
