The results are in...

The beta results are in (ok they were in last week):  Beta 1: 193:-)  Yay we got this result last Tuesday!   OK so I taken probably 10 HPTs so I was pretty sure it was going to be positive but I wasn't sure how positive.  Then Beta 2: 353:-) While it did not double, they told me they only wanted to see a 60% increase and it was 83%.  I have been crazy nauseous for about the past week and the last day or so I have been exhausted!  My parents and sibling were in town this past weekend for my dad's birthday so we waited to tell them until Friday night when we were all together. It was perfect with lots of tears from my mom and my sister.  Then we went to DP's parents yesterday and told them.  It went well too.  The only exception was that his dad smokes and while we have talked about how he needs to quit, DP told him really has to quit otherwise I will not be around the next 8 months and he will not get to see the baby.  We will see what happens, but I am not worried about it the decision is already made. 

We go back March 6th for our first ultrasound:-)  Can't wait!  We are excited of course but cautious.  I think I will feel better March 6th but not really until we are out of the first trimester.

Thanks for all the prayers!

  2. YAY, YAY, YAY!!! I've been blog stalking just waiting for this update. I am so beyond thrilled for you right now! Tears are literally welling up in my eyes. God is so good! And although I know all too well how scary this part is right now, let yourself celebrate and be overjoyed. Whatever tomorrow brings can wait...today you are pregnant! Also, don't worry about the beta not completely doubling. Mine never fully doubles either and all was well.

    You and your little bean will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers!

    Hugs,
    Kara
