Do you see what I see?

It is POSITIVE!!!!!!!!
I just got a call from the doctor's office, and they told me that we are pregnant!!! They do a blood pregnancy test, and anything above a 50 is pregnant. My number was 128!!! Praise Jesus!! I go in again on Monday to repeat the test, because a pregnancy that is on the right track will double every two days.
Of course, I had to take a home preg. test once I got the news, just to see the two lines. I don't think there is anything better that seeing that second line materialize!! Even though we are letting everyone know, I'm still a little bit leery about everything until we see those numbers going up. I've had 3 early miscarriages, and know all too well the pain of those numbers not increasing. We appreciate all your prayers, and would love your continued prayers through this next week...well actually the next 9 months!! =)
I'm just in shock...I have actually had a pretty rough week. I didn't want to blog about it as it was happening, but I actually had quite a bit of spotting this whole week. I have been so worried, anxious, and just convinced that the IVF didn't work. So you can imagine my shock when the nurse told me congratulations!! It is sure better to think you aren't pregnant and find out you are than the other way around!
Thanks again for all your prayers...I will continue to keep you posted!!!
