Preggo (Blessings #15)

As I write this, I am preggo! I am thinking with twins since they put in two perfect embryos. Seriously - they were perfect!

The embryos grew just like they were supposed to. The doctor froze one on Monday, one yesterday and two today. One of the frozen is excellent quality and two were good quality. They looked pretty awesome to me on the pictures they showed me of the blastocysts (embryos) before they did the transfer. My Mom, Dad, cousin Darra and friend Kristi were with me on Monday. My Mom and cousin were with me when they actually transferred the embryos. Kristi was sweet and kept my Dad company in the waiting room. It was a very cool process. We had to wait 20 minutes for my bladder to finish filling up from the two big glasses of water I had. Then, the doctor sat everything up. They called down to the lab for the babies and they delivered them on a silver tray. Then he put them in - you could see a white light on the ultrasound - they gave me a picture of that. After he put them in, the lab confirmed that they were in me and not in the tube thing. I relaxed for about 20 minutes and then we went to breakfast at Rise n Dine. I spent the rest of the day relaxing at my parents and went to my bible study and rested there with my friends.

Tuesday afternoon I left for PA - the doctor said I was good to fly and I was ready to go home and see my husband and girls. I think the girls know - they have been so gentle around me and Addison has taken a liking to licking my belly. She normal wakes me up with a kiss to the lips, however, this morning it was a kiss on the belly. So sweet!!

Of course, everyone at work was so sweet and kind. I work with the best people! They have been so understanding and awesome. I have to be gone for three weeks next week and they are excited for me. I go back Wednesday and Friday for POSITIVE blood pregnancy tests. YEA! I can't wait! I feel pregnant and I am pregnant. My chest and tummy swelling confirm it.

This journey that we are on has been incredible - everything has gone perfectly and according to God's plan. I want the glory of the Lord and my faith in Him to shine through. I pray that it does - He gets all the credit!!

My "to do" now is to rest. I am doing just that and enjoying lots of couch time with the girls and Chip. At work, I am blessed that I can relax - I sit at a desk with a perfect chair and window and awesome coworkers. What could be better than that?
