My husband, David, and I had been trying to have a baby since November of 2007. After 'letting things happen', we got the amazing news that we were pregnant in June of 2008. Sadly, that pregnancy ended at 9 weeks with a natural miscarriage. After two more chemical pregnancies, we turned to fertility treatments in 2009. That decision was a disaster, with lousy medical care and poor monitoring. In December of 2009, we made the huge decision to move onto IVF. Things fell into place like magic and we began treatment on January 15, 2010. After a blighted ovum in March, we did a successful FET in June, only to endure another blighted ovum in July. We kept up and underwent another IVF in September/October of 2010 with the arrival of our son, Brogan in July of 2011! After our lovely success (finally) we decided to undertake yet another IVF treatment and hope for a sibling for our little red headed boy. Well... so far it's worked. Our story continues below!

It's Over.

My obsession to pee on a home pregnancy test.  I didn't even do it today, not even once.  Maybe it's because it was my beta day.  And we got great results.  Way better than last time.  137.8.  I'm kind of just saying 138 because it was so close.

So our beta today was 138.   As far as numbers go, my clinic considers 50 to be pregnant, but barely.  100 on beta day is excellent news. Did I mention that we got 138?


  1. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CANNOT use such titles ever again please! i can't remember the last time i gasped out loud. please, sonya!!!! how about..."addiction over" or "poas fund converted to nursery fund". you're killing me.
    ps-- 138 is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! are you having repeats?

  2. Yeah, that title, not nice! =)


  3. Your title scared the sh@! out of me! I'm with jeannie and Jill on this one! Ugh! Thank God you not only have good news, but you have great news! Yayyyyy! When is your next beta?

  4. Sorry girls... I had to... *grin* I finally get to have some fun here... Thank you for giving me crap, though. I do deserve it. I've written way too many 'it's over' titles that had NO humor to them.
