Oh my Goodness

I will admit that I had no feelings positive or negative for the IUI.  I was hopeful, but all symptoms, I chalked up to the progesterone side effects.

In an order to keep my sanity, I did POAS Friday morning before I had the lab work.  The line was VERY faint.  Then I wasn't sure if I was just seeing things.  I really didn't believe it.

I went to the lab and they drew my blood.  I reminded them to fax the results to my doctor.

I headed to Columbus.  I stopped at McD's for a sweet tea.  The doctor called and told me that the blood test was positive...barely.  The beta was 25.  I was to get another blood test Monday.  NO PAINTING!  NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO BE IN THE HOUSE WHERE THEY ARE PAINTING!

POAS - Saturday, line darker
POAS - Sunday, Line Darker
POAS - Monday, line darkest yet.

Sunday after leaving the house, I saw a rainbow in the sky.  I felt a feeling of peace.  

Went back to the lab this am for the second beta test at 9:10.  I left there are 9:40. Waited patiently for the dr to call me.

At about 1:00 pm, Dr called and told me that the result is climbing as it should.  Now it is 190!  I have my first Ultrasound on Friday, August 3rd! 

I am SO excited.  I just can't believe it!  We are cautiously optimistic that this will be our take home baby.  I 'think' the due date will be March 25th.

If you are reading this and are my friend in real life or on Facebook, please keep quiet.  We are going to try to wait a few weeks until we make an announcement.


  1. Yahoo!!! I have to admit, I wasn't overly optimistic when you swaped from IVF to IUI, I am so so so glad you proved me wrong!! I am super happy for you!

  2. I'm crying tears of joy for you! I'm so happy for you and praying, too, that this will be your take home baby.

  3. Very excited for you! Hoping that we have the same results in a few weeks!
