Why I haven't been on here for a while...

There are no words.

I'm freaking out.

I feel sick.

I'm a nervous wreck.

But I went to the doctor yesterday and called this morning to confirm it.

Supposedly my beta test placed me at a 66 HCG level for 14 DPO (days past ovulation). I go back in tomorrow and the numbers will need to double every 48-72 hours to show it's developing normally.

Now I have to go back to lying down 'cause they want me to stay off my feet (can you say high risk pregnancy and I'm supposed to leave for London a week from today?).

Please God...could we get it to stick this time?

So so happy for you Brooke. Not enough words to say it. I'm sending good vibes for a double beta tomorrow.
And you're going to need a laptop and a wireless connection sometime soon if you have to stay off your feet!

Oh.My.God. I will send prayers your way. This is fabulous. I'm sure consuming your enchilada casserole contributed SOMEHOW.

And Emily, they are pregnancy GODDESSES for pete's sake.

I will pray and sacrifice and cross everything I own for you and MR. Blogger...

I laughed at the 3 tests, I took about that many the first time I was pregnant.

Wah! My original comment isn't here! Must have flunked the word verification test. Anyway, I'm praying for you and Baby B.

I'm sorry that I haven't been around to read in a while and I'm just now reading this entry, "POST" the e-mail I sent you earlier, so sorry I didn't mention anything before.

I am so happy that you have another chance and I wish you and "MB" the very best. I will pray everyday for you B.

I will try not to be such a stranger anymore and read more often. Talk to you soon.
