The Results Are In...

The plan was to let my cell phone go to voicemail when the RN called today. That way Hammer and I could listen to the message together. If the news were bad, I could cry and have him next to me as support. If the message was good, then we could share in the joy together.

What I didn't plan for was a persistent RN who not only called my cell phone first to leave a message but then proceeded to call my work phone. Without thinking I picked up the phone only to have my stomach drop into my shoes when I heard her voice on the other end. NOooooo, what am I going to do! Not here, not now. But I couldn't stop her from talking and telling me the results.

And I have to tell you I really heard nothing past, "...and I'm happy to tell you you're pregnant..blah, blah blah,

your beta was low though, only 24...blah, blah, blah,

...although I've had plenty of women have low betas and go on to have perfectly healthy pregnancies.

I'm pregnant! I'm Pregnant! I'M PREGNANT! (I cannot believe I'm typing this...holy pete!)

But we are not out of the woods yet. Its definitely a case of late implantation. Tomorrow I go for beta #2 and hopefully it's doubled. There is a risk of an ectopic pregnancy with low number just because the embie could have implanted late because it floated around and found it's way up into one of my tubes. She also said it could be 'on it's way down' but seeing that I've been testing every day except for beta day and never saw a line show up (and my sticks are sensitive starting at 20). So if you could all say a prayer for this little Hammer baby, that he's in the right place and growing strong I would be soooo, sooooo grateful. You have already been so supportive, I cannot thank you all enough for your encouragement!

Awesome news! Congratulations! And, as a sidenote, I had some CRAZY things happen with my betas in the beginning and I am now 37 weeks pregnant. So, those numbers don't always mean everything. Good luck tomorrow and please keep us updated. So happy for you!

I'm so stoked for you! I've been praying for you for a long time and really believed God was going to answer your prayers soon. I just didn't know when (of course). Don't worry about low beta numbers. Mine was only 50 and I know plenty of others who started off in the 20's. The increase is really what matters.

Praise God, and praying for all three of you!
