I honestly don't even know where to start with this post.

Tuesday was a crazy day. My emotions ranged from excited, to scared, to terrified, to calm to my stomach aching, and back to excited, scared, terrified and then back to calm once I had given it to God again. And Thomas was at work and IMing me the whole day. And he wasn't in any better shape! We were a mess.

One minute I was completely content knowing that God has the whole thing under control. I know that He already has our story written, but then the next I would have this dread, of what could happen. 

I love that so many of my friends sent me verses Tuesday morning.

Philippians 4:6-7 - Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Psalm 27:14 - Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

Psalm 18:30/2 Samuel 22:31 - As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord's word is flawless: He shields all who take refuge in him.

So thankful for all of you that helped me get through those early morning hours!!!!

8 AM:

I headed into the Gyft clinic at to get my blood draw.

Mary informed me that I would get a call between 12 & 3 pm.

Thomas came home at 11:45.

And we waited. 

And waited.

And waited.

12:52 PM:

Charlene Called.

We jumped up, I answered the phone, and quickly had her wait, while I put it on speaker phone. I didn't want to miss one word. I then told her I was ready.

Her words were... The test was positive.

Thomas squeezed my hand and I said, Oh yay.

My HCG level was at 47.

I then talked through all the business parts, like when so I come in next for my blood work appointment, do I keep taking the progesterone shots and estrogen pills, etc.

 I ran out to take these adorable pictures, because I didn't want to assume and take them ahead of time.

And then we immediately called, texted, and posted the picture on FB for all of you.

That is right, you all knew within 30 minutes of Thomas and I knowing. Because that is how much we love you. And I would have busted if I had to keep it in!

And now the question is...

Are we having 1 Baby?

2 Babies?

Or 3 Babies?

And now we are pregnant. What does that even mean? It seriously is taking a little while to sink in.
But we are!

And now I get to keep taking the estrogen pills 3 times a day. And I get to keep getting a progesterone shot in my rear every evening. Hoping that stops at 8 weeks if all my levels look good.

And every 48-72 hours I go in for blood work to ensure that all my levels are doubling. They might have an inkling that there are multiples if the numbers go crazy. I cannot wait for my numbers tomorrow! 

And then in about 2 weeks (I am double checking that time frame with my nurse tomorrow), they will do an ultrasound and we will know how many. Eeek!!!

So our praying is not over! Pray the numbers keep going up and doubling. Pray that all of these babies that stuck are healthy and growing. And pray that my body does what it was created to do and that it will be a perfect safe haven for these littles.

And seriously. All of your love means the world to Thomas and I. I cannot believe that we had so many likes, comments, texts, and phone calls. You all have cheered us on in a crazy amazing way.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We love you.
