positively pregnant

So even though we heard the good news from our Doctor himself on Tuesday, I just couldn't go without taking a pregnancy test to see that positive! If you've gone through infertility and you've seen multiple negative tests when you were hoping for positives, you know my excitement.


Last Thursday I had my second beta test to check my HCG levels. My second beta was 453 (My first was 188). So it a little more than doubled! Which is awesome. I don't know the exact science behind it, but I think that your numbers have to double in 2 days to indicate if it's going to be a healthy pregnancy.

Our next appointment is Monday, May 18th... not soon enough! At that appointment we will do an ultrasound that will for 1. let us hear the heartbeat(s) and 2. tell us how many babies we will be having!I'd love for it to be twins (2 for the price of 1, right?!), but my motherly instinct already tells me it's just one. I'm happy with either though! Whatever God blesses us with will be amazing :)

4 weeks

Also, at just 4 weeks and 3 days pregnant (last week), I took my very first bump picture! Ok, ok, truth be told, that is not a baby bump. Yes, there's a baby (or two) in there, but that bump is definitely more like a fertility drug bump hahaha. It's actually smaller this week!

  1. This is such great news Danielle!! I'd probably want to take the test at home also just to see it for myself :)
