It's been a long time...

So sorry for those of you that follow my blog..I have not been posting due to recent events in my life.  One of my very best friends lost her battle with brain cancer on Saturday and then my husbands grandfather lost his battle to cancer on sunday.  Needless to say it has been an emotionally trying week.  I was priveleged today to go and sing for Kaci's funeral.  It was a true and beautiful tribute to her life.  She will be deeply missed by her family, husband and 3 children.

Nothing much has been going on as far as the pregnancy goes.  I am starting to really get a pudge and I just hit the 8 week mark.  I am hoping for an uneventful next few weeks.  I get to see these little ones again on friday so I hope to get another picture to show.  As any mom knows the first trimester can be a scary one.  Any and every little pain causes some slight anxiety..I can't imagine how my IP'sare feeling..  Looking forward to reassurance on Friday.

A little scre..trip to the ER and...(read below for exciting news)

So,

I woke up this morning stressed due to one of my friends battle with cancer.  I have been uncomfortable and not sleeping well at all...then today around 11:30 am, i went to the lu and there before me was bright pink spotting...i was (am) cramping and I freaked...I just knew something was wrong.

Shane took me to the ER and after a whole day of crying, waiting and checking for more spotting the doc finally came in.  Everyone was asking "when was your last period???  Your how far along??/  "I;m a surrogate, My period was like 4 months ago...the transfer was the 25th.....they were all really supportive and hopeful that things were progressing and this was a normal bump in the road...I had some blood drawn and then the ultrasound lady came in...Finally, I would know...I held my breath hoping to hear "everythings fine" ( I forgot I was waiting to see how many beans were inside), when she said....Look, there THEY are...2 perfect little babies!!!! 

I turned to Shane, "See, I told you...then to the tech, "I knew it all along, I have said it from the beginning there were two".  She smiled and I cried as I thought of the birth to come...E(my IM) will be so happy to have her arms full and her heart overflowing on that day...

So as of this moment I a relieved.  I a joyful and blessed to get to take two little love bugs through this first journey of life and place them into their loving mommy and daddy's arms. 

Two 2 love:)  Oh my..

On a side note, I am taking donations of bio-oil and coca butter...

663???

So my doctor and Case manager called yesterday to let me know I am pregs...O really, I had no idea:)  Not sure what's goin' on but they all said dear, you're high...TWINS high!!!!  The normal range for a singleton preg at my stage is between 100-200 and I was 663...I have blood work on friday and we will see just how high I am climbing.  I have started on injectable progesterone daily and will be on estrogen injections every 3 days.  I guess we will have to wait and see for now.  I am scheduled for an ultra sound on the 20th of this month and that should clearly show us just how many we have in there...

As for me I am happy.  I feel fulfilled knowing i am making a difference in someone else's life.  My IM called today in tears...She still doesn't want to get her hopes up.  Everything has gone wrong for her so she still expects the ball to drop soon.  I hope she will relax into all of this and be able to enjoy the experience.  I cannot imagine how she must feel.  I was anxious as I carried my own children, but I don't think I could have ever entrusted my child's life to someone else...hoping and praying she takes care of her self and my baby.  She is an amazing mommy.

Thanks for reading...on a side note, one of my dearest friends is still fighting cancer.  Please visit her sight and pray:theronnes.blogspot.com
