My 200th Post and a Celebration!

The last 49.45 hours have been so terrifying to me. I have been scared to death to say the least. I was actually worried about how I would make it through the day today (kudos again to Stacy for sticking w/me!!) knowing that this could be the day I find out I am losing our precious baby. After an extended wait (darn getting those results late) I found out that our number has gone from 186 on Monday to 381 today!!! They wanted a 60% increase and it slightly more than doubled!!! Our RE has cautioned that we are not out of the woods, but that it was a very nice jump! Praise the LORD!!! We will take it one day at a time and pray a lot that this little baby is a fighter like her big brother Chase was (yes, I think it's a girl). Thank you all so very much for your kind words, encouraging stories, and prayers. I am so very thankful for each and every one of you. I am still very scared, but so hopeful that all will be OK.

**I am grateful for:
1) all of you
2) rising numbers
3) Stacy
4) miracles
5) answered prayers

Girl - Can you say music to my ears? I am so glad that you got good news. We have been praying for you and hoping that this was the very news that you would get. Celebrating is going on in T.H., IN tonight! Hugs all around!

Wonderful. Absolutely wonderful!

I've been thinking about you all day, and checking in, holding my breath. It was worth the wait. Oh my.

Breathing a huge sigh of relief.

Your numbers more than doubling in 48 hours is very significant to my mind. Your betas haven't done that since the beginning, and now they're just taking off. I would interpret this as losing a vanishing twin, and the remaining fighter really kicking in and thriving.

So happy for you, Kahla! Please dry your tears and rest easy as you can. Put your feet up, mama: you're pregnant.

I just happened across your blog yesterday while strolling through the blogosphere. And while I don't know you at all I have to say that I have thought of you so much in the last 20 hours and have been stalking your site for an update today. What great news! I wish you a wonderful 9 months. Take care.

Long time no talk girlfriend - been reading your updates and praying every second for a healthy pregnancy. When your last number posted my thoughts were that you had a lost a twin but that the remaining baby was snuggling in - and it looks like that is what that baby is doing. So glad to read good news - enjoy them and try not to stress about what is around the next corner - enjoy the moment =) Congratulations!!!

I am so HAPPY for you! I know it's much easier said than done, but try not to worry. I'll keep the prayers coming, but I think everything's going to be just fine. God is holding on to your little baby in every moment! :-)

Prayers and more prayers are coming your way. The kids have been telling me, "Pray for KAYYYLA and her itty bitty baby!!!"

This is such good news. What a wonderful relief.
