A Blessed Day

04/12/11 – A Skype webcam photo of us the day we found out we were going to be parents… 🙂 

1st beta 4/14/11 – 156!!
Our little Rock Star. 🙂 
progesterone level – 33.8

Yes, I’m that person who posted a pic of something I peed on.
In my defense, it’s never bothered me when others did. 🙂 
Thank you God for being with us through every step of this journey. Please continue to walk with us through the rest of this pregnancy and the rest of our lives.

Our next beta is Saturday morning. My clinic wants at least a 66% increase – and ideally a doubling.
Keeping our fingers crossed!!!
