A new chapter of (what I hope is) a wonderful new book

June 13th- Interview with dream job.

June 14th-  We brought home a 6 week old German Shepherd pup, who didn't sleep all night long.  Got offered said dream job.

June 15th- BFP pregnancy test!

June 15th- later in the day.  Results from first HCG quant...24.  The nurse called to tell me it the numbers weren't were they wanted them to be and "not to get my hopes up".  As if I needed anyone to tell me that!!  I promptly called back and screamed at her.  Besides that fact that 24 is a perfectly acceptable number for someone who is as early as I was!  Geesh!

June 22nd- 1st ultrasound.  All they could see was an empty sac.  The doctor told me to "keep my fingers and toes crossed" and then he told me to come back the following week for another scan.  I said "no".  No. No. No.  I wasn't going to do this again.  The coming in every week and watching for the slow or no development only for it to be determined at 8-9 weeks that it was "viable". No.  I told him I will see you in 3 weeks.  By then we will know what is what.  I can't deal with all of these scans and appointments.

July 10th-  2nd ultrasound.  Hal went with me.  We were bracing for the news when....we saw something that looked like a baby and what looked like a flicker in the middle of it.  The doctor said 'and there's the heartbeat'!  A HEARTBEAT!  Hooray!!  Yippee!!!

September 10th-  Feeling great.  16 weeks pregnant. No complaints.  Just keeping our fingers and toes crossed and praying each night for a healthy little one.  It still doesn't seem real...I am so so thrilled that it is!!
