Updates

I got my beta results back and things are looking good:

14 dpo 100
15.5 dpo 263 (I went late on Saturday so it was over 36 hours)
17 dpo 745


My first U/S is on May 15th, I will be 7 weeks. Im really excited!

So far, I feel great. I still have on and off cramping and sore breasts but other than that, I dont have many symptoms. I actually woke up this AM and felt like my symptoms lessened, which led to a mini-freakout but I know I need to get over that. I never thought Id be so scared to be pregnant but I guess I just feel very attached to sweet little Bubs already!

I hope everyone is having a great week!

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

~Isaiah 41:10~

Yay for great betas! Don't worry about the symptoms, but your right we get attached to the baby right away. I had days that my boobs didn't feel as sore as other and of course I would freak out. I wish you all the best!!! I have to tell you again how excited I am for you!!!

Jocelyn said...

I totally missed your first announcement and just wanted to say congratulations!

Emily said...

Congratulations! Isn't it funny how the lack of symptoms can be just as miserable as the aches and pains themselves? I hope everything continues to go well!

Excellent numbers! Oh, and you've been tagged. : )

My symptoms really kicked in right at 6 weeks. That's when the hormone levels start to get really strong. You'll be feeling them soon enough!

Your numbers are looking great! I definitely understand the fear. Outweighing my excitement and shock for the first several weeks was an intense amount of fear that I never expected to experience. I didn't want to be one of the infertiles that freaked out over every little thing during pregnancy. And, in general, I don't. I don't worry if my stomach is cramping a bit or if I'm more sick or less sick or if I haven't felt him move as much lately. However, those first few weeks, what hit me really hard was this horrible fear that i would lose the pregnancy and be back on square 1. What I had to realize was that just as I trusted God with every aspect of my infertility and His timing in it, I also had to trust Him with every aspect of my pregnancy. I had to come to terms with understanding that He would do something great with a miscarriage if I had one because He promises to and He is faithful BUT I believed with all my heart that He had promised me this baby. He had told me to get ready for Him to do something really big, so there was no reason for me to fear miscarrying. I didn't want to waste away the weeks, missing out on enjoying my pregnancy- my gift from God. So I determined to celebrate every day I had of it. And now, 23 weeks later, I'm still celerating- now celebrating the fact that I have a healthy baby boy growing big inside of me- celebrating the little movements I feel- and celebrating all of the milestones I've reached and are to come.

I am so excited for you to receive your gift from God. And my prayer for you is that He eases your fears and gives you a peace in Him and in His blessings.

YAY! That's so great!!

Great news! So glad the little one is growing strong. The symptoms (or lack of symptoms) can definitely play with your head, if you let them. I've finally gotten to the point where I realize that I have no idea what my body is going to do, so I just go with it!

That's great news! Try not to focus on the symptoms, they come and go in those first few weeks and after week 10 (for me at least) they disappeared all together.

Kaitlyn said...

I missed the announcement! Congratulations!!

Kristi said...
