It’s Official

June 8, 2011

I went in for my beta yesterday and it came back at 135 – I am officially pregnant.  I mean I already knew that I was, but somehow hearing it from a doctor (or nurse practitioner, as the case may be) makes it all feel *real*.

Holy crap holy crap holy crap.  I just can’t believe we made it here.  I am four weeks and one day pregnant.  I am going to be a mom.  I really, really am.

So far the only “symptoms” I’ve had are sore and miraculously-fast-growing boobs, the occasional twinge and/or cramp, smell sensitivity (which occasionally leads to nausea) and intense sleepiness every afternoon.  Nothing too awful, but enough to reassure me that yes, this is really happening.

All I can think is that I am so incredibly grateful.  Yes we deserve it, and yes we went through a lot to get here.  But I’ve heard some horror stories this week of women going through incredibly painful losses right now, and I just want to enjoy every moment while I am this lucky.  And all I can do is take really good care of myself and hope for the best.

I go back for another beta tomorrow, so here’s hoping the numbers are doubling doubling doubling!!

    wooohooo! that’s a great solid beta. I know the worry that comes with each beta but you’re doing great and I’d say to try to enjoy every step but it sounds like you already are. I’m not sure if it’s always the case with multiples, but I had a really high initial beta which was a good sign that I had more than one in there, so it sounds like you have one nice little bean which is just perfect. Congrats again! Isn’t amazing how things can go so well once you start working with an RE!!? Your story makes me excited to visit mine again in a few months. Keep us posted.
