Our News

So I was going to wait a bit to make the announcement due to our loss in March, but since Brett can't keep in the good news I thought I would go ahead and share too.

We are pregnant! We found out Friday and although Brett and I discussed waiting to tell everyone, he already told his dad and a few others. So the news is out.

The last pregnancy was lost due to triploidy. That is where two sperm enter the egg and give an extra set of chromosomes to the baby. The very first warning sign was the extremely high beta and only one baby. It is very rare and is not common and we really don't have to worry as it is not likely to ever happen twice to the same person. It is still hard not to worry though.

We are so happy and can't believe how lucky we are for this to have worked so fast again. We are looking forward to a very uneventful and boring pregnancy.

I am predicting a Christmas baby, wouldn't that be the greatest Christmas gift in the whole wide world!!!!

Good luck to all my friends trying for their BFP's, I pray this cycle is your cycle too!!!!

Thanks ladies. Exactly one month. Rachele has early labor though, usually around two weeks early with her previous pregnancies and surrogacies so we are expecting the same, which would put us right at Christmas. Our EDD is Jan. 4th, 2010.

Amazing news! We're just a few days ahead of you--EDD 12/27. It's really amazing, and at times heartbreaking, the paths that we take. You'll be a mommy next Mother's Day!

How's the pregnancy going? I was so happy to hear about the pregnancy again! :) Has there been any ultrasounds yet?

I Would Die For That
