Christmas Miracle

Well the nurse called me earlier, she said she couldn't wait to tell me or make me wait the whole day to find out.

5w1d 1664

I'm still in shock. I'd been taking tests every 3 days since Thursday, and my lines were only getting darker, so I knew that it certainly didn't go down, I just didn't know how much it had gone up. I was praying for at least 1600, b/c that would mean that it was doubling every 48-72hrs, so I got my wish.

Our first ultrasound is set for Dec 29, 7:30am. It can't get here soon enough.

Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers, I wouldn't have made it without all of you. It's still going to be a long road with lots of hurdles, but I'm very thankful to have made it to this point when I know so many of you are still struggling.
