And.... - Molly

The results are in. The doctor finally called. 
I was supposed to conference Jason in because he is traveling. I got flustered, my heart was pounding and I totally forgot. 

The test came back positive. I am pregnant. 

 My HCG number was very solid, but there is still more work to be done. 
 Friday, I go in for more blood and they want at least a 66% increase in my HCG levels. 

 My progesterone and estrogen are solid. I will continue with my patches, pills and (gulp) shots. If Friday goes well, they feel confident in my pregnancy and they will only continue to monitor my hormones. I will contact my perinatologist and set up an appointment to be monitored there as well. 

In 2 weeks, I will do my first ultrasound and hopefully they will be able to tell me if ONE or TWO bats are hanging out in the cave. 
We are elated. Beyond belief. I feel more relief than excitement right now. We still have so far to go. But yes, I am over the moon. 

Without all of you, this would not have been possible. The amount of support and love I have been given, especially in the last 48 hours has been tremendous. I am so grateful. This is truly our little miracle and all of you are a part of it. I guess it might be time to start thinking of a new blog title.....any suggestions?

It's Meagan Jensen, Traci Esteps sister in law. I can't tell you how over the moon happy I am for you and Jason. Only my husbands side of the family knows but I am also pregnant. Almost 7 weeks. After losing Lauren and almost 3 years of nothing happening, I thought that was it. We were done. Finding out was amazing. I am so glad you get to feel this again. I like to tell myself everyday.... "Today, I AM Pregnant". It feels so good. So now you can tell yourseld "Today, I AM Pregnant".
