As you may have guess by the title of this post, I am in fact pregnant!!! Okay, crying a little as I write this... now crying a lot! Pull it together! Our nurse called us today with the great news from the blood test today! The reason we do a blood test is to see the HCG levels (the pregnancy hormone which stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which is a naturally occurring hormone found in both men and women, but is produced in large amounts in pregnant females). Our nurse said that 50 is good, and over 100 is great. Our HCG level is 234! I seem to be ending everything in exclamations right now! Obviously I am very excited. Just hearing that those numbers were high and good was enough to make me cry right away on the phone.
I am still in a daze that this worked, that after the last time, the last loss... this actually worked (so far). We are really doing this. There is a baby in my belly right now. Maybe more? Oh my gosh, there could be more.
I am just so very happy right now for James and Natalie as they will get to start to plan for their new little one to arrive. The next blood draw in on Monday to make sure levels are rising, and we will update you more then. We had a film crew and on set photographers today with both of us. Natalie and James were in Tacoma when they received the news, and I was in Bellingham. Our crew filmed our genuine reactions for when the nurse called and we cannot wait to add it to our documentary.
Thank you so much for your continued support with reading our blog. We would love if you would take a moment and share this link with a few people that might want to hear our story.
Now, where can I can some pickles and ice-cream?
