Hcg Levels Still On The Rise...

On July 18th, 5dt14dpt,  J went for her second Hcg test.  Hcg still on the rise!  Yes!  It brought tears to my eyes!  It was one step closer to having our dreams come together.  Lisa said they would like her Hcg level to be at least 1,788.  J's Hcg came back at 2,092!  Wow!  I couldn't get over it.  When Brian came home from work we did our "happy dance" dancing around the kitchen, while Travis looked at us as if we were crazy!  lol :)

We don't know as of yet if their our multiples or not, but I was told it was a strong positive pregnancy.  We were to have another ultrasound on July 21 to find out how many sacs there are, but J and I agreed to wait and do the ultrasound for the number of sacs and heartbeat at the same time.  We go on July 30th for our first ultrasound!  Cross your fingers!  Until then, keep us in your thoughts and prayers!

Exciting News!!

On July 14th, 5dt10dpt, our J had her Hcg level drawn.  I received a call in the afternoon from Lisa at FCI that the pregnancy test came back POSITIVE!  How exciting!  FCI were expecting Hcg levels of 50 or above.  J came back with 447!  I was lost for words.  We have been through so much.  Of course I was excited, but then after it sank in,  reality kicked in and I had to take a step back and caution took over.  I didn't want to be too excited and then my bubble get popped.  I, myself, have medically, traveled a long road and have been through so much to get to this point.  It was like when I first found out I was pregnant with Travis.  I took the first pregnancy test and it said negative.  Four days later I took another and it said "positive".  I still wouldn't believe it so I made a doctor's appoint to get my blood drawn and the results didn't change.  It was definitely a "positive".  When I got sick with leukemia when I was 18 years old, one set of doctors said I probably won't be able to have children and then two months later another set of doctors told me I had a 50/50 chance.  Travis was definitely my miracle baby!  …and now another miracle!
