You guys, I can't stop shaking. And smiling.
Mr. Hope's reaction? "OMG TWINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
According to Betabase, my hCG level is somewhat high for a singleton and right in line for a twin pregnancy. My E2 and P4 are slightly lower than last time, just by a smidge, but are still in a good range.
On the ride to Posh Clinic, I was listening to Taylor Swift (don't judge). I had to fast-forward through the song "Out of the Woods," because the chorus goes, "Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods." I listened to it a lot during my last pregnancy, just because I've been listening to Taylor Swift practically nonstop this winter (again, don't judge), but it felt really applicable to our beta hell.
So I hit fast-forward and landed on the song "Stay, Stay, Stay," which is this adorable country-flavored little ditty that Mr. Hope and I both love (remember what I said about not judging?) . I was singing along with it, smiling, but when I got to the chorus - "And I said, 'Stay, stay, stay. I've been lovin' you for quite some time, time, time...'" I started crying. All I could think was, "Please, baby, stay. Please stay."
(Keep in mind that I am hormonal right now. Pregnant, remember?)
Blood work and ultrasound are scheduled for next Tuesday. I'm sure I will have anxiety freak-outs any minute now, but right this second?
Shaking. Smiling. And feeling so incredibly grateful.
