Yep, that's two sacs. I go back next Thursday to see if we can see any heartbeats! I never thought I would be able to say I'm eating for two much less three!!!

DH and are are extremely excited but I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous or scared. It's not the raising part I'm worried about I'm more concerned for the health when it comes to premature deliveries.

I'm technically 5 weeks today and they are measuring 4weeks 6days so pretty much right on!

The nurse just called from my doctors office and my HCG is 4,502. Is anyone else thinking Twins???? We get to go in Thursday of this week for the first ultrasound. I will keep everyone posted!!! AHHHHH so exciting

Reveal and this and that....

Sunday DH and I decided to carve pumpkins. We bought a couple little ones for our little ones. Since we wont find out until later this week or next week how many there are, I can't just say one. It doesn't seem right or fair. So we have two little pumpkins and DH did such a great job carving them.

Below are a couple videos of us telling the fmaily. The first one is me telling my little sister,step mom and dad. They thought I was about to take a picture. They had no idea I was filming.

Make sure the volume is up on both videos.

The next video is of DH's mom. She also thought we were about to take a picture.

Words can't Describe

GOD is good. I went in this morning for normal BW to make sure my hormones are where they should be. My doctor called me about 30 minutes ago....I'M PREGNANT!! I didn't think I would ever type those words. I am completely shocked, over joyed, thankful, blessed beyond belief and ecstatic. I guess my doctor was feeling frisky this morning and decided to run a beta. When he called me back and told me I couldn't say a word. I just cried (as I am now typing it out). Thank goodness no one is in the office today. The Lord works in all kinds of ways.

I was so out of it I don't remember the number he gave me....either 88 or 188. Sorry I don't have the exact number.

When can I test?

When can I take a HPT? I don't wanna take one to early but then again I don't think I can wait until Tuesday of next week. I triggered with Lupron so does that stay in your system like Ovidrel?

I was telling DH the other day how I'm trying not to stress and look into things. One day my girls are sore the next they aren't, then they're sore again( or is that because I have been smashing and poking them all day?). One day I have cramps the next I don't....I think my nose has a little more mucus today than yesterday.I'm doing a great job not looking into things. Can you hear the sarcasm pouring off that last comment?

Hope eveyone is having a great Monday!

Today I'm officially off bed rest. Everything went great on Tuesday ( I got great pics of the embroys) we transfered 2 and he said that we would be able to freeze 6 maybe 8. So if your keeping up that means we only lost one out of the 11 we fertilized!!!!! Thanks for the advice and well wishes!!

Sorry for such a short post. I'm on my phone.

I boldly confess......

today is my last day as a non pregnant woman! I have faith this time will be it. Tomorrow morning I go in for our transfer, we will be putting back 2 embabies.

On Thursday of last week they were able to retrieve 15 eggs. Out of those 15, 12 were mature and they were able to fertilize 11.

I will find out today what time my transfer is tomorrow and how many made it over the weekend. Hopefully we will have some we will be able to freeze.

I start bed rest tomorrow. Any suggestions. What did and didn't you do? I can have one shower in the three days and I'm allowed to get up brush my teeth and wash my face each morning. If you were allowed a shower, did you take it? Did you keep yourself on bedrest longer? How did you keep yourselves occupied? I don't have internet at my house...

Thanks in advance for all of your support and suggestions.
