Woot woot!  My HCG is 292.3

We took our first tests on Thanksgiving... I didn't sleep well at all the night before because I was so nervous about it!  What if it wasn't BFP (big fat positive)?  That would ruin Thanksgiving but there would still be a good chance that we were...  but we took it!  I think I would have slept poorly that night too, had we not taken them.
 Mat dipped both tests... just to make sure.  It's faint, but you can definitely see it!  Definitely lots to be thankful for :)
 The one above is from Saturday, 10dp3dt.
Below is from Sunday(darker!) 11dp3dt
And then today was the oficial lab work!  292.3!  My due date is 8/4 :)

Nancy about killed me... I was positive we were pregnant, but she put me on hold twice before telling me!  Apparently she had something to figure out before she told me... but honestly, couldn't she just say "you're pregnant!  Now I have to figure something out..." I was just praying fervently while on hold!

I'm having some nausea.  Yesterday was pretty bad.

I go back on Wednesday for another test to make sure my HCG is progressing at the right rate.

And Mat got a job offer!  He has another interview today... Either way we'll be living at the homestead full time in two weeks!

God is great!  Woot woot! 


  1. Yay - Let me be the first to congratulate you on your blog! Praise God! Those two lines are a beautiful sight, aren't they?! :)

    P.S. I remember the drive-you-crazy hold beep on the NEDC's phone line, while they waited to give me by beta results too...nerve wracking for sure!

  2. Yeah, what's with the beeping? The first few times I thought I was getting another call... but by now I'm getting used to it.

    Thanks! Hopefully we'll have happy healthy kids like yours :)

  3. Such great news. I thought maybe you put the BETA on your blog so I checked here and sure enough. What a great number :) So happy for you, gets me excited and hopeful for us in march!!

  4. I'm praying for you, Brandon and Kim! Keep me posted :)

  5. Oh and my due date was also 8/4, but they were born two months early on 6/4...hope your little one(s) stay put longer. Congrats again!

  6. Hi Malia! I found your blog while blog-hopping. My hubby and I also pursued embryo adoption and cycled with Aaron and Jennifer. We now have a beautiful daughter through domestic adoption but I wanted to congratulate you on your pregnancy! Praying for a long, healthy pregnancy for you. Looking forward to following your journey.

  7. Thanks, Ashley! I glanced at your blog and your daughter is precious! Such a blessing :)
