Praise God with us! We are pregnant! Thank you for praying and hoping!
According to my best calculations (hey, gotta use that math degree for something and IVF due dates are weird) our due date is December 13, 2013.
But those who want the best for me,
Let them have the last word — a glad shout! —
and say, over and over and over,
“God is great — everything works
together for good for his servant.”
I’ll tell the world how great and good you are,
I’ll shout Hallelujah all day, every day.
Psalm 35:27-28 (The Message)
And now, I feel like Abraham asking God for just one last request (over and over and over, just one more thing, God, please). Please pray with us that both our embryos will grow and be born to us in December. And, please, pray against fear. I don’t want fear to taint or govern this pregnancy, no matter what the outcome or how long it may last.
We have another blood test on Tuesday to make sure things are cruising along as they should. For those of you who like numbers (like me!), my HCG beta was 79.8 today. This is just a bit low, per the nurse, but nothing to worry about since I guess that can happen with frozen embies. We want our number to at least double by Tuesday, so you can be praying for that too.
Again, praise goes to God. He is the creator and he opened my womb for this pregnancy, not me, or my doctors. Hallelujah and amen!
