and the number is...

First of all, I want to say how much I love my nurse, who called at 12:30pm instead of the "sometime between 3:00 and 5:00pm" I had been told to expect. "You're so early!" I said. "I know what you're doing today," she said with a smile.

Amanda, I love you. I love you with the white hot heat of a thousand suns. In a totally-appropriate nurse-patient way, of course.

First beta: 343.

Holy. Freaking. Shit.

I am pregnant.

I am also shaking.

And I am happy. Screw the worry - for right now, for the next five minutes, I'm choosing joy.

  17. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
    Praise God all creatures here below!
    Praise God above ye heavenly hosts!
    Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

    It's lent so I'll save that other word.... that I want to shout from the roof tops!

    Right now I have my gift finally given sound asleep on my lap. I was rocking her, nursing, and singing. Then I started our nightly prayers. And I realized I didn't know whether I had a thank you prayer to lift for you and that surely there was news. AND I DO!!!!!! You're in both the thank yous and the God blesses now!!!!

    SO freaking happy for you!

    Think its two?
