Welcome To Our Garden

Wednesday, June 13, 2007


After a small stick in the arm and a long 3 hour wait, we got the call we'd been waiting for. We are officially pregnant! The nurse advised us our beta was 133. We were clueless on the number. She said it was good and to come back in week for a repeat beta test. We've done a little research on the numbers but we'll take any input anyone has. She also said we would be coming back in 6-8 weeks for our first ultrasound. How exciting!

Speaking of numbers. We've come to the conclusion that 13 is no longer an unlucky number. Or at least not for us. Let me explain. I've usually ovulated on or around day 13. We had our IUI on CD13. Our first PREGNANT display test was 13 days after the IUI. Today is June 13 and we got our confirmation from the doc. If you add the number of letters in Hunter and Abigail its 13. If you add the total number of letters in mine and M's last name its 13. We like 13 now. I'm sure we could come up with some more 13s, and I probably will, but for now that's all we've got.

We've decided that our little blessing will be referred to as the flower. It's just a seed right now but will eventually grow into a flower and that all the junk I crave will be the fertilizer. I know....dorks. But anyhow, having said that, how could we pass up this shirt?

It's our first pregnancy purchase. ;o)

I posted a comment here last night, granted it was late, and I don't know where it went. I wanted to say congratulations and we'll drink a toast to you. It's great to know other one timers!!!!! (a little guilt for us though) Enjoy your new adventure!
