Joy

I am pregnant!

My beta number is 273 today. That's a good strong number. I will go back on Tuesday morning for my second beta test. We need that number to double by then.

My progesterone is a little low at 17, so the doctor is having me increase the amount of my injection from 1cc to 1.5cc.

I was totally prepared for bad news, so this good news is a wonderful surprise.

God is so good! I am feeling joyful!!!

  26. JOY! JOY! JOY!

    While having all of our family here for Sunday dinner I went on FB to check your status and burst into sobbing tears. After I composed myself and got a big hug from my mom I shared your incredible news with everyone and more tears fell and not just from me. We have all been praying for you and for Michael over the years and this was such a JOY to find out together. I pulled out a fabulous bottle of wine tonight for our dinner in yours and Michael's honor.

    Joannah you will continue to always be in my family's prayers!

    God is INCREDIBLE!!

  47. YAY YAY YAY YAY! This could not have happened to a more deserving lady!

    I'm hoping for boy-girl twins for you...a boy named Michael and a girl named Joy! :)

    And if you were into new-agey names (which I know you are not, LOL), I would suggest Phoenix...something beautiful that rises from the ashes. It's a nice in-utero nickname anyway :)

    p.s. Time to start posting photos to your blog again :)
