Part Two

I didn’t know it at the time, but this was Part One.  In case you’re not up for reading, the basic summary is that on June 16th of last year, Gabe told us we’d have a new baby in our family in 268 days.

268 days later…





I am not very far along – in my 6th week with a projected due date of November 17.  Progress has not been without wrinkles – namely some spotting that has kept me from fully embracing what still seems so fragile.  The good news is my hcg levels are rising at a reasonable pace – it was 768 just after 4 weeks and has risen to nearly 13,000 as of yesterday.  Progesterone is good.  Other blood tests are good – even the autoimmune ones, which have traditionally been questionable to poor!  The doctor has ordered an ultrasound for this week, so we’re hoping for assurance that there’s a beating heart and that all looks well!

A request if I know you on a face-to-face basis… if you can keep this under your hat for a little bit, we would appreciate it greatly!  I need a place to write and process this out, and most importantly to me I use my blog as my primary place to record my life for later reflection.  Seeing as this is a HUGE development in our lives I feel a little lost not writing about it!  However, I have several friends dealing with infertility and I’d like to share with them first.  Also, we do not plan to tell Gabe yet, and the fewer people who know decrease his chance of finding out accidentally.

For four and a half years I’ve been waiting to say this… I’m pregnant!  We’re having a baby!  I can’t wait!
