I am totally shaking right now, the doctor's office just called and confirmed that we are pregnant!!! I have been testing, and they were all negative until this morning. I went in for a blood test to confirm the test, and yes indeed I am expecting.
The nurse said my level was low, only a 30, but they aren't concerned because I am only 11 days past ovulation. I go back on Monday to make sure the level increased. Until then, I am praying for a happy and healthy nine months. Baby Wilson should be here around July 4th!
I must say that I couldn't have gone through all of this without the special help of Mrs. B and Mrs. M. They are the best!!!

One week of my two week wait is finally over. This has been the longest week ever, and I am sure next week is going to be even worse! The bloating has finally gone down a little, at least I am comfortable.
Last Friday I did my trigger shot, so my doctor said that I can test next Friday... let's see if I last that long. I know that I will risk getting a false positive, but sometimes a girl just has to pee on a stick:)
We are hosting an LSU themed couples baby shower for our dear friends this weekend. They are expecting twin girls this winter. Next weekend we have friends coming in from New York, and the weekend after that my dad is coming down for a visit. We have a busy month ahead of us!

I have started the 2ww and am hoping the time passes by very fast!
At my ultrasound last Thursday and had one 18mm, one 17mm, and lots of 14mm follicles. My lining was 8.6, which they said was very good. Dr. S. had me do a 6th night of the Follistim to let my follicles get a little bigger (they need to be 18mm). I did my HCG trigger shot Friday night, ouch!!! I'll test next Friday and if it's positive I'll go in for a blood test to confirm. And if it's negative we will start another cycle.
I feel pretty good, but I am dying to know what is going on inside my body. I am amazed at how bloated I am, hopefully it is all worth it!
Mrs. B and her twins came to visit this weekend. It was so fun to have babies in the house, and my parents had way too much fun playing grandparents for a night.
Here are some pictures of the great weekend!

Last night was my first follistim shot, and it really wasn't bad at all! I think I pinched the skin on my tummy way too hard because that was the only part that hurt.
I am off to Destin tomorrow through Wednesday to pitch a new account. I am hoping a couple of days at the beach will keep me nice and relaxed so my follicles can grow. Thursday morning is my next ultrasound. Hopefully I will be ready for my HCG shot.
Mrs. B and the babies are coming in for a long weekend, and we couldn't be more excited.
Hope everyone has a great week!
