The call we've all been waiting on.....


This is Allison


or at least the call that me, Doug, Jenn and Michael have been waiting on. And the beta is.......131. SIGH. :) Barb called me at work around 10:30'ish, 11. She said you know the doctors like the beta to be above 50, but I really like it to be above 100. She said yours is 131. YAY!!!! I was so happy. She was telling me the meds that Jenn will change to or take in addition to, etc. To be honest, I really didn't even pay attention to that. Then she said that we need to schedule the U/S. It's 9-8 at 11:30. I can't wait!!! Then she said that she was sure we had one little one in there growing, but not sure about two. She said we really wouldn't know until the U/S. But, her guess is 1. BUT....she did say the beta number doesn't "always" tell whether it's 1 or 2. Normally, but not always. Anyways, I held up during the conversation until she said, go tell Doug he's gonna be a Daddy. I lost it!!!


I truly do want twins. I grew up as an only child and I really wanted to have more than 1. But, we just want whatever we have to be healthy. That is THE most important thing.


I can't wait to hear the heartbeat/heartbeats in two weeks. How exciting. That will truly be an amazing moment. We've waited so long for this to happen and we're both shocked and thrilled and excited. I love it when Doug just randomly says "we're gonna have a baby". It just makes me smile so big.


I've attached a photo that Jenn and Michael took for us. Have I mentioned how glad I am that Jenn's carrying my little bun in her oven????


Thanks for the prayers everyone. I feel like I say that on almost every post, but I truly mean it. Without the support and prayers for everyone along the way, it would have been a much tougher journey. AND it's not over yet. Thanks for sharing it with us!!!
