Surprise Answer!

I don't even know where to start....

I am still in disbelief and feel like it will be more tangible when I see that heartbeat/heartbeats. I don't know why God choose to answer our prayers, nor do I feel I deserve such a huge blessing on some days. But I do know that God did answer our prayers and I am extremely grateful and humbled. I want to say that I do not chalk this successful cycle up to two coincidental fortunes but to the Lord that has brought us through these, hard at times, three and half years! My prayers have changed from asking to be able to carry a child, to praying for a healthy, wonderful, awe inspiring pregnancy. We have received this pregnancy as a gift from God. I pray that I will be able to go through this pregnancy with as little worries as possible…which I have already failed at. I am in uncharted territory with this surprise answered to prayer. I find myself wondering some days if this is all just a dream. I am trying to not worry about the next step, but I guess there is also something we are waiting on…weather it be a 2 week wait, 2nd beta, ultrasound?!?!? I hope and pray that I can continue my song of praise this entire pregnancy and I don’t let the worries overcome me. I have waited for this for a very long time and I want to enjoy each milestone even the morning sickness!!!

Right before my FET, we ordered Chinese takeout and these were our fortunes!!! Now I never put much stock into fortune cookies, usually crack it open and throw the fortune aside, but for some reason this night we both read our fortunes!!! Now I think the fortune cookie knew something that night and was trying to clue us in on our upcoming successful cycle. Don't you?????

Pregnancy Update: If you haven't noticed I have updated Our Journey on the sidebar. My 1st beta on 2/16/10 was 700 and my 2nd beta on 2/22/10 was 5,410!!! So everything is right on track! We go next week for an ultrasound! I have been very tired and just in the past couple the nausea has gotten worse. I still have not thrown up yet...this morning came really close though!

Our Journey!

I know I have been absent from here for awhile, but I think I had a pretty good excuse. I hope you enjoy the slideshow of Our Journey!
