and the winner is.......

Beta hCG is 46!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm PREGNANT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to get my blood drawn again in 2 days to see if the beta doubles and then I will be able to breathe a small sigh of relief. Today I am going to do exactly as I did in this post back in October. I will celebrate this victory!! Hallelujah!

Praise the Lord. And praying for a positive successful outcome. Can't wait to meet baby Plato in a few weeks on the ultrasound....

And as a reminder, this is just the beginning. Many things can happen unexpectedly and I ask that you respond delicately. Check out the blog for updates and be sure you know what is going on before you post onto Facebook. Some lurkers do not read my blog, but instead only read your Facebook posts and comment without understanding what is happening. Let's make sure they have to come to the source for the gossip!! Let's pray that in two days my beta doubles. Let's pray that in 3 weeks I see a heartbeat and baby growing on track. Let's pray that at each successful office visit, that only good news is to come. Let's pray that in 8 months a healthy, successful breathing, living person will be born into the Plato family. But, only time will tell. I know the pain of chemical pregnancy (early miscarriage). I know the devastation of a deteriorating fetus on the ultrasound. I know the hurt a missed miscarriage and subsequent D&C causes. I know the ache of having a complicated pregnancy. I know the brokenness of delivering a baby that is destined to die due to traumatic delivery. This story is far from over. There is a long battle ahead of us. We have so much more to overcome. I ask that you join me in praying for my little one and our family. I pray that everyone is blessed because of this miracle. I know today, I am blessed!!!

Thank you, Father, for providing me with a miracle yet again. I pray for a long, successful, healthy pregnancy with a result of a healthy, living, breathing baby or two at the end of it. I thank you so much for your generosity. I am truly blessed again. In Jesus' name, AMEN!


  1. Couldn't be more excited right now. Lots of love and prayers for your little one, two or three that are in you:) haha.

  2. oh sunshine. this is glorious news, absolutely glorious. i know you are probably feeling very guarded in your heart, which is totally understandable, so i am praying for great peace!!

    i can't wait to check back and see the beta results.....God is so good.

    praying for you!!


  3. Hip Hop Hooray Baby Plato...you can do it!! Get bigger. We can't wait to see you!! Oh Sunshine and Shaun I can't even tell you how pumped I am for this. However, I wholeheartedly understand the apprehension in the early stages but we can at least Praise the Lord that pregnancy has been achieved. We will be with you every step of the way that you want us on!! In the meantime Congratulations and can't wait for continued progress updates!! This is amazing :)

  4. So happy for you today. I understand that you are being very cautious at this stage. I am praying for you and look forward to your update in two days and that your betas keep doubling, or tripling.

  5. we are praying for you guys. I know that I haven't know you very long but you guys are mot definitely in our prayers.
