My BIG Secret

I have been pretty quiet this cycle. I haven't talked about it much with anyone. We felt like this one could be the last one. Of course when Grumps said that the track began to play again, CHILDLESS! So I held everything pretty close.

The day of my transfer (November 3rd) I drove myself. I spent LOTS of time in prayer and singing praise. I needed to find peace with it all. Because my little ones were growing slow, only one was really good, we decided to transfer 4. My doctor only expected 2 at the most to make it.

Fast forward to today! Today I had my 2nd beta. Yep you heard it right! I AM PREGNANT!!! It truly is a miracle. My first beta numbers were 2,599. Today they doubled perfectly. I go on Monday for my 3rd beta.

Grumps and I are cautiously excited. Today's results made it easier to breathe. I am telling those who ask or who were a part of it all. My mom knows because I was with her over the weekend when I tested. Other than that, we are keeping quiet as best as we can. I want to shout but really want to hold it close.

Now you have something to pray about. LIFE!!!!

This has got to be the best news I have heard in a LOOOOOOONG time!!!! Following you through the other two negative IVFs and the FET was so sad and depressing, when you and your hubby seem like you'd be wonderful parents.

I TOTALLY get when you were so quiet until now. Writing about negatives just hurts, with all the build up....

This is sooo great! Give us some more info when you would like, such as when was that first beta taken? 2599 girl?!?! Great number! Definitely twins in there! When will they give you a 1st ultrasound???

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this!

Sunny....

I have been following your blog since you started it way back when!!! I want you to know that I have never forgotten our girl's weekend 3 years ago. I have been keeping you in my prayers everyday since.

I am so happy that words cannot express my emotions right now. I know that you have been through so much pain and grief and I know that I did not have the right words or even know how you must have been feeling.

I guess I just want you to know that I am so happy for you and T. You, T, and the baby/ies are in my prayers and thoughts. I can't wait to read more of your thoughts and follow your journey these next nine months.

You are amazing person and you deserve this happiness. This is truly a blessing.....I am just so happy!

To walk on Fertile Ground...what a blessing...an answered prayer of a deep desire. God is good all the time and gives us abundance when we least expect it. Keep walking...

You will be in my thoughts...

Lots of love,

Pam
