Looking good so far!

4 weeks, 0 days pregnant -- Month 21, Cycle 17, Day 27, 14 dpo

I received my phone call from the clinic. The nurse had left a pretty upbeat message for me to return her call. I felt confident before I even called her just by the tone in her voice on the message. And then the interchange:

"Your numbers are looking great! They more than doubled. Dr. Randolph and all of the staff are very pleased with this."

"Ok. How well are they?" I fumbled over my words.

"One-sixty-seven! And we usually like to see these numbers increased by at least 50% and yours is more than 300%! Congratulations!"

"Should I do another beta in a couple of days?" I asked thinking I would get even more reassurance.

"Nope. Dr. Randolph looked them over and he is very happy with this. We all are!! You can come in for your ultrasound on March 8th at 10am."

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Step two accomplished. Step three is to make it to March 8 without any complications and find out just how many and how healthy each of the fetuses are. At this point, I am thinking 1 or 2 babies!!!!

Thank you all for your support and love. I so appreciate it.

Father, I praise you for this. I thank you for allowing me to again experience pregnancy, for giving me the opportunity to walk this path and try to have children of my own. I pray that you continue to give us glimpses of good news at each step and that you keep my embryos safe from harm. You are the author and PERFECTER of life and I ask that you make sure these babies are perfectly formed. I pray that you are with me to help me stay sane as the next 2.5 weeks pass by. I pray for my pregnant friends as always asking that you protect their little ones. I pray for my ttc-ing friends who are still waiting for their miracle babies that they know when to call it quits and when to keep going. I pray for my followers that they are able to see your miraculous nature through this blog. Without you, LORD, I would be lost and I pray that all see your wonders. In Jesus' name, AMEN!
