C and I weren't planning on telling anyone besides my parents since we spilled the beans about IVF a few days ago, but we were too excited! We have never been pregnant before, we are so happy, we want to share our joy, and we want lots of prayer for our babies.
I called my parents right away. I didn't tell them that we moved the Beta up to Friday, so we were potentially able to surprise them if the news was good. My mom answered the phone and we asked if she wanted to come out here tomorrow for the Rose Bowl and dinner. She put the phone on speaker phone so my dad could hear. I asked again, and my dad wasn't sure. I responded, "well I think you should come and celebrate, BECAUSE WE'RE PREGNANT!!" My mom burst into tears, just like I did. I could tell my Dad got a little emotional too! They were so happy! We ended up going out there because our house is still freezing. We get our new heater installed tomorrow, thank God!
It was nice visiting. I slept better out there actually because the last two days, I woke up at 5am and couldn't go back to sleep... too much excitement! I slept til 7am today and went to bed at 830. I was so exhausted last night I could barely keep my eyes open! I think part of it was lack of sleep and part was pregnancy! I know its so early to "feel" anything, but I do, which makes me worried about the future!
My brother and sis-in-law came over yesterday as well. We wanted to surprise them with the news. They were happy for us and are so excited that their new baby, Sasha, is going to have a playmate. He (no Sasha is my Nephew) was born Sept 29. So they'll be close in age.
We also called C's parents, which they are extremely happy. C's step-mom never had kids so she has been WAITING for grand babies. I was always worried I wouldn't be able to give them to her.
My only fear is that we told people a little prematurely. I am so scared about this second Beta #. I am praying they are okay (I'm going to say they until we know how many since we implanted two).
Here are my "babies" first pics (finally)...
This is the early blastocyst
a little blurry, but this is the 4aa blast (not sure what that line is?)
Here's how they were made!
The crazy part is that this is when my first beta was supposed to be! I would have FREAKED if this was my first Beta #... 692! Crazy!
