And I'm trying super hard to put all my fears out of my mind. I want to enjoy every second of this pregnancy:)
During the day yesterday I was so sad. I just had this horrible feeling that it didn't work. My blood work was at 8:30. Normally they call with results by 11:30. They didn't call me and leave a message until 3:00! They close at 4. So all day I kept thinking that it couldn't be good news if they waited this long to call. I didn't check the message at work because if it was bad I didn't want to be crying at work. But still even after I saw they finally called a horrible sadness came over me. I was in tears on the ride home. My husband met me at home and we decided to check the results online first. I couldn't deal with listening to the message first and having to hear that sad voice of the nurse telling us it didn't work...again. So I sat crying on the couch, afraid to push the lab results button. And then I did...
And our world changed!!! We were both just sobbing and hugging each other. I'll never forget that moment.
We received so many calls, texts, emails, FB comments from friends and family. Yes, we are completely out! And yes even on FB! I don't even care. Like I said, we are going to enjoy every second of this pregnancy. Thinking positively and hoping for the best.
Guess what I did right after we finally listened to the nurse's message? I ran into the bathroom and peed on a stick JUST so I could see the words "Pregnant." :)
When we called my mom she was sitting out on her deck with my Nana and my aunt and my step-dad. When I told them the news they all started screaming and crying!!! It was the sweetest thing and music to our ears.
My friend Lauren also sent me the most fantastic text. It was a picture of her holding up a glass of champagne. And it said " I may or may not have sent my husband out to get us champagne to celebrate your beautiful growing family." How cute is that? My friend Kristen also sent me the sweetest email ever, that I just may have to print out and keep in a baby book :)
So basically, we are feeling so incredibly blessed. I haven't smiled this much in a long time. And thank you all for your comments, the amount of love and support I've gotten from all of you is nothing short of amazing. I promise catch up on all your blogs this week. My head is still spinning! And I'm struggling a little with feeling guilty that this worked for us, when I know there are so many of you out there waiting for your turn! :(
Tomorrow is another big day. It's our second beta! I'm praying so hard that it doubles!!! Pleaseee pleaseeeee double!!!
The question of the day yesterday from people was "How many are in there???!" :)
Please keep growing Little Miracle(s). You are so loved...
ps-Felt my first earthquake today! Crazzzzzyyyy. A friend of our's texted my husband and said " Your news is so big it shook the earth." :)
