A Barbie Baby.........what???!!!

My head is still spinning and my feet haven't touched the ground yet - after my doctor saga and disappearing ovary, I received a call from Dr. K's office with the results of my pregnancy test - I wasn't expecting much and almost didn't answer the phone. I'm glad that I answered the phone - I got the most life changing news of my life - I'm PREGNANT!!! Oh my goodness, after 21 months of tears, heartache, negative results, hormones, swelling and we are finally here! I've been back for a second beta test and my levels are doubling so I'll have one more blood test to check my levels and then a sonogram in a few weeks to see "how many are in there" (that is according to Dr. K). I'm feeling good with the exception of being very very very tired. I'm saying that some of that is from being sick and not sleeping and then I'm sure some of it is pregnancy related. Pregnancy related - wow - I just can't believe it still. I am pregnant - the weight of those words just amazes me - they are miraculous and life changing - in a single breath, with 2 words - my dream came true!

Funny thing is - DH and I didn't do so great at hitting it in March. We just couldn't seem to get a schedule down and I think we were both tired of the whole routine. Then of course I took 2 tests at home before I even went to the doctor - they were both negative??? I guess it just proves that things work out in the perfect time!

BTW - looks like we will be having a Christmas baby according to Dr. K - that is totally confirmed yet but that is his guess. Gotta get back to work........I've been pretty much MIA around here for the last few days!

(((HUGS))) from Barbie and Baby!
