Big News

I honestly think anything in life can relate to a Friends episode... so remember that Friends episode when Monica and Chandler go to the hospital to get their baby and it turns out to be twins?  Remember how the birth mother says, "they talked about two heartbeats, I just thought they were talking about mine and the baby's," (or something like that)?

Well, to preface the rest of this, after a long time of trying and finally a low dose of Clomid, we are going to have another baby!  Yay!  I'm seven weeks along.  I know it is super early to tell everyone, but if something happens I would probably blog about it anyway so I'm just going to let the cat out of the bag.

We went in for our first ultrasound today to make sure there was a heartbeat.  There was.  In fact, there were two heartbeats and that DOESN'T include mine!

(not my ultrasound picture, but similar)

I don't feel great physically.  I would rather lie in bed all day than do anything, hence the reason I have not posted anything on my blog or done any projects in forever.  

Baby A's heart rate was normal at 132bpm but Baby B's heart rate was low at 109bpm.  The doctor said there is an 85% chance that they will both make it to 12 weeks but he is a little worried about baby B, which obviously makes me nervous.  There is nothing I can do though so we'll wait and go back to check on them in a week and a half.  

So there it is.  Our big news.  Thanks to everyone who sent fertility vibes and prayers our way.  Now if the babies could get some of those prayers I would really appreciate it!  Thank you!

  1. Congrats to you! Chantel was only a few months old when we were told we were having identical twin boys. Everyone thought we had triplets. Babies are a blessing. I am praying for a safe pregnancy.

  9. CONGRATULATIONS! How exciting! I am very happy for you :)
    I'm the same as you - I told everyone early in my pregnancies. I figured if something did happen I would have a good support network rather than suffering in silence.
    I wish you all the best with your pregnancy and hopefully you'll be feeling a bit better physically in no time - radiant skin and shiny hair - yay! Now rest up and take it easy. If you need to take a break we will all be here when you get back. x

  14. I KNEW IT!!! When you were blogging a while back about "feeling crummy" I thought you might be pregnant but maybe didn't know it yet!

    I'll keep praying for you that all goes well.

    Good for you!!!
