Happy Birthday To Me!

We had our second beta on yesterday and it was 475! Woo hoo! I worked myself into a tizzy waiting on the results and felt a huge relief when they called. It just seems like the worrying will never end. Now we worry til the first ultrasound... then the heartbeat...then the..

I just don't feel prego. I only have some mild cramps and just keep taking tests to prove to myself that there's something in there. I know I am preachin to the choir as I have yet to read a post where someone was like " I am pregnant and I believe it". I just am in shock still I think. We couldn't help but share our joy with our closest friends and we decided to tell my parents since they were coming for my birthday. I still haven't told my boss but given that my workplace is 98% female, I am sure the news will spread down the grapevine all the way to her office in no time flat.

We suprised my parents with onesies. I think my dad was shocked. Mainly because he said "I am in shock!" My mom said "oh I guess it took?!' followed by crying. She hugged me with a kung-fu grip only a mother could have. We were so nervous and knew it could go either way. We couldn't have asked for a better response. We went to the zoo for my bday and my mom wanted to go to the gift shop. She came out with two bags of stuffed animals! It was so cute. She said she wanted the baby to have something to remember this day.

I never in a million years thought I would be so happy to spend my 32nd birthday on the couch in my pj's but that's exactly what I am doing. And I couldn't be happier. I feel really blessed.

Our ultrasound is May 9th. That seems like a lifetime away! I prob will take a test everyday til then. Judge me if you must. Also my estrogen level came back at 664. My progesterone level came back at over 40! They said to keep using the patches, shots and vag torpedoes (yay). Does anyone think that the progesterone is high? I almost skipped the shot today. I have itchy welts the size of ping pong balls and am running out of trunk space. I cried yesterday because the shot hurt so bad. I don't want to mess anything up but I just don't know if I can do it for 3-5 more weeks! Everything I read said progesterone in the first trimester is at most in the 20's? Can your progesterone be too high??

Well, that's all for now bloglandians! I hope the good news just keeps on coming for all of us and those of you still waiting, please try to hang in there and stay positive. (easier said than done I know!) I wish everyone some peace, love, and baby dust!


  1. SO Happy to hear your news!!! :D Congrats ladies!!! What a great b-day gift!! :)

  2. Yay! I still say two! Haha and stop testing everyday! Because even if god forbid something happens you would still get a positive for a while.... BUT NOTHING is going to happen! Can't wait to hear about the first US!

  3. What a wonderful birthday! Isn't it so great to see family just as excited for your little bean as you are? Just wait until you see grandma and grandpa with your little one. It's the best feeling ever. Happy birthday and cheers to what I know will be an awesome year for you and R. :)

  4. Congratulations, ladies! AND, you can take a test all day every day, I definitely will not judge!

  5. Yay....and I know what you mean when you say you can't believe it! It took me to nearly 13 weeks to really really believe it. I needed the baby bump evidence! Everything will be good and I look forward to hearing about your US.
