We Did It!

We did it!  Yesterday, we were LEGALLY married in Santa Cruz, California!
You know what that means?  SHOTGUN WEDDING!!!

That’s right kids, we’re PREGNANT!!!
What an awesome day!!
Beta Test on Thursday was positive but numbers were low and so I took this test this morning…and we’re still going!  I’m anxious to get the numbers back, but won’t be back in NYC til Tuesday to do another beta.  You might say we are cautiously optimistic.  But for today, we are pregnant!
I would not be pregnant without all of the valuable information I received from the IVP.  I really believe that all of YOU got me pregnant this month when I ignored my RE’s protocol and did it the proven IVP way.  Thank You!!!
