Pregnancy Blood Test!

This morning at 9 am we had a pregnancy blood test! I have been so nervous that i didn't sleep well at ALL last night! I was up all night tossing and turning!
We got in at 9 drew the blood and were done within 5 min. our quickest Drs. visit yet!
Travis and I sat around at home after for about 2 hours waiting for them to call us with our results. We couldn't wait anymore, we decided to stop back by the office and hear the news in person!
We got there and Dr. Andrews came out of his office saying how he was just about to call us. So we walked into the office real nervous and he didn't leave us guessing for long.
Dr. Andrews told us we were pregnant!!!!!!!!! HOLY COW!! I started to cry and shake i was so excited. He told us that anything over a 5 is pregnant and our levels were 169. So we were very happy with that! He told us everything was looking great and that i get to half my dose of progesterone and take it for the next 4 days and then i am done! Yay my hips are so sore!!
The Dr. told us that in our ultra sound on the 28 of this month we would be able to tell if there is only one baby or if there are more babies in there!! I really am hoping for twins so the praying and finger crossing isn't over yet!
Its so crazy to think that 1 miscarriage, 2 IUI's, 3 years and many Drs., tests, heartache, tears and money later, IVF has done the trick for us!! It feels too good to be true I'm still having a hard time believing it.
I kind of cheated, i took a pregnancy test on the 2nd and there was a very very VERY faint line but a line none the less, i hadn't see one of these in 3 years so i bought more tests and took them all the way up to yesterday and each day the line grew darker, it was so amazing to see that little pink line grow and have such an effect on me and Travis, but of course we didn't want to get our hopes up until for sure it was confirmed by the blood!! :D
Today has been such a great day and i hope for many more great days to follow!! Its so crazy to me to think that after everything we have gone through these last 3 years it might all finally be over... Travis and I are SO ready for a baby(ies) the way we see it we had to wait 3 years, 2 at once would be a bonus!!
We are so ecstatic right now! i just wanted to share our happy news with all you great family friends supportive followers and anyone that reads my little blog. IVF is a real life miracle!!!
If ANYONE is having problems getting pregnant i highly suggest you go to Dr. Larry Andrews at East Bay Fertility in Provo Utah he is a miracle man and his whole staff is amazing so sweet and caring and easy to talk to! Im so grateful for prayers and inspiration because without either we never would have found our Dr.
Thanks for reading everyone ill keep you updated on life and for sure once we have our first ultra sound on the 28th!! :)
