Milestone

We had our third and final beta today, and the number came back at 1892!!! Our u/s is Oct. 27 at 10am. Thank you all so much for your enthusiasm, excitement and good wishes! This is all still so unbelievable!

This is how we celebrated on Saturday.
Husband is a fan of Remy Martin XO cognac. He has been working on this bottle for years and a few years ago reached the point where there was just enough for a snifter or two left. He couldn't bring himself to finish it and buy a new bottle when so much was going so wrong. We promised each other that we'd finish it when we had some good news. Well, after the phone call on Saturday, he went straight to the bar, brought out the Remy and we finished it up. Cognac at 1:30pm tastes great! I haven't cried yet, but when I saw that bottle, I almost did because of what it signified.

So here is to reaching the milestone of having the u/s scheduled!

CONGRATS!! Definitely a good way to celebrate! You might not have cried yet, but I warn you the ultrasound will be a whole other story - I cried and I mean, I REALLY cried (the happy kind of course though you can't really distinguish between the two with me) when there were heartbeats - it made it SO real. I hope 10/27 gets here really quickly and you have a really good happy cry! :)
