Beta Levels and How I'm Feeling..

As you all know, my 1st beta hcg came back at 260. My 2nd beta hcg more than doubled in 48 hours..it came back at 700! Baby is growing! I have not had much for cramping--other than what is the normal. I have not had any bleeding/spotting so that is good! My midwife kept me on progesterone just incase, because of my past pregnancies. I am pretty sure the other times i've been pregnant..they were either early m/c or chemical pregnancies. I am 5wks pregnant today! 3 1/2 weeks til our first appointment! Hopefully, DH can come to that appt, because we'll be able to see our baby for the first time and hopefully hear the heartbeat! among other things. I am sure Benny knows something is up, he always sleeps near my head, by my back or at my feet when we go to bed. I have extra opk's left over from months ago, so i decided to take one..the test line is wayyyy darker than the control line! yepp, my eggo is preggo! I took a cheapie hpt also..yepp they've gotten much darker! baby is still growing.

We've narrowed down our boys names to Bryson and Hunter. DH need to get used to Bryson, because I feel like that will be our child's name if my intuition is right. I feel like this baby is a boy. When I go to the store, I do not even look at girl stuff -- its straight to the boy stuff. I know its super early, but I picked out my crib! I love it! I just wish these next weeks would fly by, then I could buy it.

After 2 years, We're Pregnant!!

On October 13th, something felt off to me..so I went to Walgreens and bought 2 boxes of tests. I got home from walgreens/work and took 4 tests..the positive result poped up right away, we were shocked to say the least! We were not expecting to be pregnant right now, especially since we decided we'd stop trying so hard around this time because DH is so busy with field work, I sometimes rarely see him until I go to bed.

October 14th, I went to the clinic to confirm the pregnancy and of course their test came back positive too! yippee! I called my Midwife and I went in for my 1st draw on October 15th---levels that time came back at 260! I'm most deff pregnant! I go back for my 2nd draw on October 17th--levels should double too! Based on my O day, We're due June 22nd! So excited, and when our first appt comes i'm sure the date would change some. we're still so over the moon, especially since I was concentrating on paying our debt off, losing weight ect..and BAM! Pregnant!
