ICLW #3

I cannot believe it is already towards the end of June!! This is my third month doing ICLW...thanks for stopping by if you are new! I'll introduce myself in a bit, but first, I must say that at this moment, we are pregnant. That wasn't the case when I signed up for ICLW, but since then we have had two positive, doubling betas. Our viability ultrasound is on tomorrow.

I have been married for 6 years to my wonderful husband who I met through my job almost 9 years ago. We started TTC one year after our wedding, so after 5 clomid cycles, 3 iui's, 2 ivf's, and 5 years (almost to the day), we found out we are pregnant! It has been quite the roller coaster of emotions, but it will all be worth it the day we are holding our miracle(s) from God! This journey has taught me so much, and I wouldn't want it any other way (although I hope this time we get to move on to much better things).

This blog is about everything from IF to our daily life. DH and I work full time and have wonderful friends and family including six nieces and nephews. We LOVE the Cubbies, relaxing in our pool, taking a ride on the motorcycle, and hanging with family and friends.

As I mentioned above, our first ultrasound is tomorrow and I will be 6 weeks 6 days so we are praying for proper growth and heartbeat(s)! We think it may be twins based on my hcg betas so that is why I say heartbeats. I'll be updating after our appointment tomorrow afternoon!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Sunday!

well i really hope you get your twins, but i do have to say that our charts are a little misleading! according to the lab i had my hcg done at a normal result is anywhere from 500-10,000 at four weeks. good luck tomorrow though, i've got my fingers crossed, two heartbeats for you!!!
