I had my bloodwork done this morning at the RE's office. Yesterday, I kind of didn't let myself believe that the test was really positive. I think I got used to it being negative every cycle that it didn't seem like it could be real. But now, it's real. My beta was 98! The nurse who called that this is a fantastic number for where I'm at, being it's 16DPO. I finally allowed myself to cry. I think all the failed cycles and all the emotions of feeling like it would never happen finally overflowed when I realized that the Lord provides when He sees fit. I wrote yesterday that I was thankful for God's many blessings, big and small, seen and unseen, expected and unexpected. How true!
Please pray that this baby (or babies, since I released 4 eggs!!) sticks. I'm so nervous about that. I had a great progesterone level (26.1) and high beta, so this is good. I go back Tuesday for repeat bloodwork to see if my beta numbers have doubled or not. So say some prayers, baby needs them!!
