Time for a rodeo!

That's what this feels like.  On Monday morning, I was woken up REALY early, because Travis wanted me to test before he left.  I walked into the kitchen, and simply asked "are you ready for this rodeo one more time"?  I don't know if it was joy or with exhaustion he asked... "You're pregnant... again?"  Probably both, because that's how I feel.  Though, he must feel like a stud, being able to knock his wife up 3 out of the last four cycles!!  We sent text messages to his parents and older sister, and I called my family (they aren't so great at the texting thing... though my Dad has a BlackBerry Storm... go figure!).  We just asked for continued prayers, as we waited for the betas that would follow.

I'm telling you friends... it was SOOO hard not to run here and let you know.  If this blog was anonymous, it would be different, but since a bunch of our friends and extended family read it as well, I waited.  Trav and I talked about the pros and cons of 'announcing' last pregnancy, and though some of our friends know, (actually I think I've only told 2 friends... and they both kinda drug it out of me), he understands what a support group all my 'bloggin' friends' are.  Sooo.... if you know us, we ask that you keep it private, and instead of congratulations, we only ask for prayers.

Now for the really exciting news!  Today I'm 4 weeks, 3 days pregnant.  The even more exciting news is that my first two betas were AMAZING!  As good as we could ask for.  12dpo (Monday) was 43, and 14dpo (Wednesday) was 128!  Which if you do the math, is one point away from TRIPELING in 48 hours.... Wicked Cool!  Even though these two were great, my doctor said for 'grins and giggles' he wanted to do a 3rd one.  I went today after I subbed, but since we have a bad storm (they let school out early...) they had already shut down the labs.  Of course I would have loved to know what the 3rd number was, but I can wait until Monday.   There is still anxiety, but not shear panic.  For now.

I tried to drop hints... look at my last few posts... I'm telling you... I.was.dying. not telling you.  In reference to my previous post, the pumpkin.... I would be due on October 6th, so I though a pumpkin was fitting! 

Hope you all have a great weekend!  I know that we are trying not to get excited... but who are we kidding, we're stoked!  Especially since these numbers are WAY higher then the other two (if you remember my 12dpo betas in October and December were 11 and 25).

Like I said, no congratulations, you can do that once we are holding our little pumpkin, for now, just prayers.

  1. Those are great numbers.

    I can't imagine how you are feeling right now, but I have been wondering what was going on since you started to complain about being tired and dropped some hints about testing on Monday, and then pretty much disappeared.

    My thoughts are definitely with you!

  4. Hi--I stumbled across your blog this morning and felt like I could relate. Now that you've shared your pregnancy, I feel like I can relate even more. I've suffered through three losses, and am now on pregnancy #4 (somewhere around 6 weeks), praying to hold baby #1. Please feel free to stop by my blog to see my story. God bless you on this rodeo!

  9. I love you dear friend and I'm sending you tons and tons and tons of prayers! Your little pumpkin is already loved by so many! I love October babies because you can snuggle them up in long onesies and I think babies look so sweet all bundled up!
