Today I went to the doctor's office before school to get another blood test to see how my HcG numbers were coming along. They doubled which is great, exactly what it is supposed to do. This was such a relief to hear, as of course I am hoping and praying that everything continues to sail smoothly. While I was at the doctor's office they gave me the best gift... a pregnancy handout of do's and don't and what to expect right now. I was elated. Who knew four pieces of paper stapled together could make a girl so happy? I almost pinched myself, thinking I'd wake up from this amazing dream. I still can't believe it worked, I am walking on clouds right now! We both are.
I have been feeling well but extremely tired and a bit nauseous in the mornings. I haven't been throwing up but also haven't felt much like eating in the morning. I have been keeping crackers on hand and was able to suck down a green smoothie this morning, so I am taking care of myself, don't worry!
We go again on Friday to see if my numbers doubled again. If all looks great then we will do our first ultrasound next week to detect the gestational sac and yolk sac within the uterus. The week after that we will be able to see the heartbeat or beats! Talk about having a lot to be thankful for! Speaking of being thankful I have the best hubby in the world. He has stood by me through all the struggles we've had with conceiving the past 4 and a half years. He has been my rock, my friend, my shoulder to cry on, my brightness in a dark place. He has been taking such good care of me, walking the dogs, lifting everything, getting me food since I have been too tired to cook, tucking me and the babies in with a kiss for me and three kisses for the belly. I look at him and can't help but think, life is good, God is good! I am so happy to be sharing this exciting time in my life with my best friend and soul mate!
Have a good night.
