Special Early Christmas Present
It turns out, that I'm pregnant again. I was so happy when I found out. I got the 'official' word from my HCG Beta test that I was, but the home test told me already. Of course I know they have to do that test, they want to watch my hormone levels and make sure the baby is growing. So now comes the scary part, waiting for the next 3 months. I have been sooo very careful not to do anything that could cause strain. I'm pretty much like "Don't touch me!" lol I feel like a walking piece of glass, I don't want anything that I could do to make this pregnancy not to work.
Putting all of my worries aside, I am so thrilled. My sister-in-law was right, this is the best early Christmas present I could get. Too bad I can't get the actual gift until August. :) You know what would make it even better? If there were two babies. There is a 10% chance, so I will keep my fingers crossed until I have my first ultra sound. The doctor actually put back 3 eggs this time, so there is a very small chance of triplets. I think I would fall over if there were three. But, I am guessing there is just one, but it's nice to dream of what might be.
I've also started keeping a journal from the start of this current IVF to the end of my pregnancy. I would like to keep a record of everything I think and feel through out this whole process, and maybe when my child is old enough let them read it. I also want to buy a memory book I saw at Books-a-million. It has pockets in the pages to keep momentous and a place to put a picture of the mother each month of the pregnancy. Seems really nice.
Also, in all my excitement I don't want to forget who really made this happen. God has given me this blessing and I don't want that to slip from my mind at any time. Doctors can only do so much, but God makes it happen.
