I got an email about 4am last saturday. We got the news. The first surrogate came back with a Beta Level of 286.6. Second surrogate came back with Beta of 197.2. All I could say was "Oh boy" (until M woke up looked at the email and started saying Oh God over and over again-he must have found religion in that moment). Since then surromom1s Beta has gone up to 981.3 and surromom2s to 304.1.
Looks like we are definitely pregnant and if all goes well we will have twins (of sorts?). After getting over the shock we started to get excited (I love the idea of not having to go back for another child right away) and also nervous (two babies at the same time--neither have us have taken care of one!). It will be a steep learning curve but we can't wait. I feel weird blogging about this---in our families we don't talk about pregnancy until end of first trimester, but the whole point of this is to make the process transparent and share our story with others going thru it. By next week we should have some pictures and hopefully some confirmed heartbeats!
Wow. Will our twins be this fabulous? Of course!
