On Tuesday March 23rd the doctors gave us the go ahead to trigger and make a baby. We had 2 mature follicles and 2 immature but almost mature follicles. We prayed a lot that day and asked a lot of questions and then I heard a clear voice in my head say, "How can we NOT try?" This is the place that we wanted to be in and how could we not trust God now? So, we put it all in God's hands and took a big leap of faith. We could get pregnant with 4 babies......or 3 babies....or 2 babies....or 1 baby.....or not get pregnant at all.
We have complete peace that we are in God's hands and that we are not pregnant with 4 or even 3 babies, I can't tell you how I know this but I just have this overall feeling we aren't. Which now begs the question am I pregnant at all?
The trigger shot has the pregnancy hormone in it called HCG. Last Tuesday March 30th I took a pregnancy test and had a faint line. Next day did the same thing and it was negative, and the same for Thursday and Friday. So, I now know that the trigger and the hormones are out of my system.
Sunday morning I got up early before anybody else and I tested. I got a faint line on two different tests....Praise the Lord!!...(yes, I tested twice with two different brands).
I have contemplated whether or not we should share the results but decided to share for a couple of reasons. The first being that we could use your prayers and the more people praying the better. Second, this baby deserves to be celebrated! God is the author of life and only he knows, so we celebrate.
I had a blood test today and another one on Wednesday. I took another test this morning and the line only got darker....which is a very good sign. I will update when I know the results of the blood test.
We won't know if we are having twins until an ultrasound is done and that won't happen for a couple of weeks.
I won't be sharing the news on facebook for a while so please don't post anything on my wall.
Thank you for your prayers!!
HCG 53.....PREGNANT!!!! Next test Wednesday, now the number has to at least double!!!!
