That's the newest addition to our family whose arrival date is June 26, 2012 (which is my dad's birthday, he would have loved to seen all his grandkids). We had a good appt with Dr M. My second beta was 808. WOW! And when he did the u/s everything was "good and normal"!
Still seems surreal. We are still keeping it a secret for awhile longer. Go back in 2 weeks for another u/s to see a heartbeat...until then I can worry and analyze everything and worry some more.
Bobby asked Kristin do you want a baby brother or baby sister? She said a sister. That seems so far away! Wow, I am pregnant!
So still working...boo! But I am trying to find a way out of here! I am hoping I got something up my sleeve so I can call it quits to teaching for at least 2 years until the girls are in school. We shall see.
I LOVE fall! It is college football season and the leaves are starting to change! I love it!
I love my girls and being with them just rocks. It is hard to imagine my life without them and boy I must have been bored before them! The girls are just awesome in every way and I can hardly believe that Bobby and I created them!
Here's some pics of them picking out their pumpkins:

Oh and here's something else:
Shocked that we got this far. Had a Beta done on Friday at 12 dpo and it was 188. I went yesterday for one so waiting on that result. And Dr M wanted to see us when the nurse told him Friday. Probably cause he missed seeing Bobby. So I will see what he says today. Prayers for healthy please! Oh and we are keeping it on the downlow right now.
I am 35 years old. I am married to the most wonderful man in the world, Bobby. We have been married for 6 years and tried to conceive for 20 months (18 cycles). We are smitten with our 2 beautiful girls!
