One More Day!

Tomorrow we have our ultrasound! Our very first look at our sweet little baby. I am so excited to see the little coffee bean (that is how big he is right now according to my pregnancy journal)...but at the same time I am completely terrified that they will find something wrong. I am still really lacking symptoms and just have that "this is to good to be true" feeling. It feels like it has been FOREVER since our blood test, and I just need to see that things are as they should be to truly believe it. I know that there is no reason for there to be a problem, but between the infertility making me feel like this would never happen and from the days of me working in an OB/GYN ultrasound office, I know all to well that things go wrong. I am not focusing on the negative, but as the time gets closer I just get nervous. Hopefully tomorrow at 10:45 we will be able to put all those worries behind us and just completely enjoy being pregnant!

There is, of course, still the question of twins. We honestly wrote off the idea of twins back on the day of the blood test when the IVF nurse said "your beta looks like a strong positive for one, but not high enough to make us think it is two". Somehow Nick and I took this opinion as solid fact. The idea of twins has only recently snuck back into our minds as a possibility. Honestly I would be shocked (SHOCKED) if it were twins. I just feel like I would know. I know, that is stupid seeing as how I feel so normal I really don't think I would "know" I was pregnant at this point if it wasn't for the positive test. Still...we aren't expecting it, but we are definitely aware that there is a chance. And we will know the answer tomorrow! I will try to post on lunch and let you all know how the ultrasound goes. If I can't, I will get a post up as soon as I get home from work! So excited...


  1. However many there are, I wish you healthy ones!

  2. Good Luck for the ultrasound - I shall be thinking of you!

  3. 10:45 I will be praying for your sweet little coffee bean. I can't wait to read your blog.
