The results...

Well if you couldn't tell by the picture, our results were POSITIVE!!!! We are so absolutely excited!! My pregnancy number was a whopping 272! Just for a comparison, with our last IVF cycle, the number at this same point was only a 128. With Jonathan at this point, it was only a 94! I asked the nurse if this meant anything like twins at this early point, and she said it could mean anything right now, even triplets! Since we only put 2 embryos in, I'm thinking that's a long shot, but any number of babies right now would be WONDERFUL!!! I also asked her with a number that high, does it seem pretty solid, or is there a chance we could repeat what happened last time? She said that that is a solid number and I haven't had any cramping or spotting, that I should not worry, that it will be okay! So that was very encouraging! I still am holding back just about 1% of my excitement, waiting for a huge number on Monday, but we are just ecstatic!


I sent Justin this picture to surprise him! He was so happy!! He immediately told me that I'm not to do anything and to continue relaxing!! Sweet husband!

So I'll post more later, just wanted to get this up, so all of my prayer warriors could celebrate with us!! Keep the prayers coming! For 9 more months of a healthy pregnancy!!!!!

Shannon Delcambre said...

posted on Fb but read all about your numbers here and wanted you to know that is exactly the number that I had with this pregnancy. I too asked the nurse what it meant and she said that it could be anything but that it was a very good indication of a very healthy pregnancy....and maybe more than one.

My numbers quadroupled on Monday so we took it as a good sign that it was thriving... Didnt have a clue there were 2 thriving.

So excited for you both!

Natali said...
