Another January Baby!

Last Friday I had my monthly Clomid exam. It was ridiculous. I got to the office and they lost my appointment. They just didn't have an appointment for me. The had to fit me in since I was a Clomid patient, but that meant an hour wait in the waiting room, followed by another hour wait wearing a paper sheet in the exam room, only to find out that the doctor wasn't even told I was in the room! Like I said, ridiculous.

But then, last Saturday, May 15th I woke up and got this:

I couldn't stop crying. I was 11 days post ovulation at that point, and just had such a wonderful feeling about a positive digital test so early in the game! I went in for a blood test Monday morning and had an HCG level in the high 170's, and a repeat test Wednesday showed high 370's. The blood tests are very reassuring, and the numbers were great.

I am amazed that we are going to have another January baby! My due date is 1/23/11. We are thinking positive, sticky thoughts for our little bean. We go in two weeks from tomorrow for our first ultrasound to see our baby's heartbeat. I am trying to be patient, but that is very hard for me! I just cannot wait!

This week our baby's heart will start beating. Pregnancy is just so amazing to me. I can't wait to know who I have in there. Logan keeps referring to the baby as his "Baby Sister". We should know for sure sometime in August!


  1. Lindsay, congratulations! I am so happy for you and will send "sticky thoughts" your way!

  2. Oh my gosh! How wonderful! I just came here to look up that recipe you posted about the tuna & beans and was greeted with this terrific news. Throwing every sticky substance I know of in your direction. Woo hoo!
