Well... - Molly

I was sitting in sacrament meeting this morning when the doctor called.

It was about 10:40am.

It was way too early to have gotten a phone call.

I rushed out of the chapel and let the nurse tell me the news.

"Congratulations. You are pregnant."


Tears immediately filled my eyes. 
I was a bit surprised at my level of emotions.

I ducked into a bathroom only to have a small knock behind me.

It was Jason.

I opened the door and gave him a big smile and yet he was still unsure of what I was smiling about.

I reassured him.

"It worked." 

It worked.

This could actually be it.

I realized that it is not the worst I am fearing.
It is the best I am afraid of.

I have been in these shoes before.
And I am not waiting for the other shoe to drop, it's more like I am waiting for the shoes to stay on.

I am not sure what is more scary.
 That I could, we could go through all the pain and trauma again?
Or that we might actually get our wish?

One step at a time.

Tuesday I go in again for more blood.
My HCG has to increase by 66% at least.

So for now, it's a small win, but it's still a win to me.

So happy for you. I know what its like to be afraid of this. We're 18 weeks along with our CCRM miracle... but I still have days where I get really scared. I always thought I"d be happy if I got a good beta... well then it became after the 6wk u/s, the 8wk u/s, our 10wk ob/doppler, then getting through the 1st rimester, then it was our us at 14wk... and well I hope by our next u's at 20 wks that I can really breathe. I will be praying for you!

I'm on your side too. I'm waiting for a different miracle but none the less a specific miracle.





Terri said...



Oh yes - the Lord and the rest of us are on your side...for this miracle.

I want my own miracle - it is a little different - our journeys have been similar.

I will not give up hope.

Don't you
