Transfer and BETA one

Sorry it has been a while but with Devin's birthday, working full time, and church commitments I don't have much time to write.  Many of my blogger friends/mothers have such good blogs.  Maybe I should take a class.

A lot has happened so here is a summary...

September 17th two 2PN (pronuclear) embryos were unfrozen and survived for my September 19th transfer.  In two days they grew into 4 cells each.  They are beautiful!  Everyone at the center was wonderful and thoughtful.  What a ministry they have brining happiness to families and life to embryos/people who wouldn't have that chance. 

PICTURE COMING....(I have to learn how to scan and upload)

I'm continuing the Progesterone shots and Estrace pills 2x a day.  This all helps the gestation of the little ones.  Let me tell you those shots are not fun.  Even with icing the hip area half the time it is sore.  Looks like I'll have three more months of the medications because....

I'M PREGNANT!  PTL!!  The nurse called yesterday and my first beta was 455 HCG.  After talking to some experience mothers that number is REALLY high being 12 days after transfer which might mean twins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Rob certainly might get some prayers answered in that category.  I have been praying for God's will in their lives and He never gives too much for us to handle, so if twins come everything will be okay.

My progesterone level is high too and is causing bloating and gas.  Not sure if anything can be done about that one.

Rob was so ecstatic when I called him to tell him he made the team.  THE DADDY TEAM!  If you haven't seen the movie "Facing the Giants" do it is excellent.  Then you will know about the daddy team.  Once I got home I told Devin and we hugged and then did a little dance.  He is going to be a great brother!!

The second beta test was this morning and they are looking for my numbers to double.  I'll update once I hear something.

A personal thank you from Rob and myself on all those who have prayed and encouraged us thought this journey so far.  Please keep the little ones in your prayers and Rob, Devin and I as we prepare our heart and home for a baby or two!

Shalom.

  2. Yea! congrats. Such wonderful news. My doctor said that higher the BETA, the better chance of a helthy full-term pregnancy. My beta was super high - 993 at day 13 & well over 3000 at day 15, but I had only one sac & hearbeat on the first ultrasound. Praying for you and your little ones.

    1. Wow that is some crazy numbers you had. Maybe I won't have twins. I'm trusting God that He won't give me more than I can handle. Keep me posted on the second ultrasound. Cheers!
