An amazing day for us, here we go...

I haven't even been able to post here for the past few weeks because I have been too scared to talk about anything that was going on with us. I am so excited, thrilled and scared to announce that I am pregnant again!!! I am very early pregnant but had an early ultra sound today to see how many babies showed and it was ONE beautiful baby in there. Jeff and I started this last cycle the day we ended our cruise, it was a LONG month of shots and medicine getting my body ready for the frozen embryo transfer. The entire month was very emotional as my hormones were everywhere, my due date came and the incredible fear of this not working overwhelmed me. For an entire month my heart was trembling with fear - fear of this cycle not working, the fear that I knew Jeff and I could NOT do this again, the fear of getting pregnant with more than one baby - everything, an all consuming fear. My embryo transfer ended up being on April 3rd...my mom sat in the waiting room and Jeff and I went together to the appointment. I did everything just like I did when I got pregnant with the triplets! Thursday April 10th I woke up at 5am and took a home pregnancy test - Jeff and I were ecstatic to see two lines! I called the doctor and they let me come in that day for a blood test. The numbers came back extremely high. I had three blood tests over the following week and each blood test ran higher than my blood tests with the triplets...I have hardly slept for a week thinking there were going to be three babies again. I have been feeling so sick, bloated and pregnant and I was terrified of what today would bring. When we went in for the ultra sound I saw Jeff's eye plastered to the screen searching and all I could do was watch him for a sign, all I heard was "I only see one, I only see one" the poor ultra sound lady was like "me too but hold on I have to look everywhere" (she later told me she was sweating she was so nervous for us). There was one sac and dot in the sac measuring where I am today which is only 5 weeks and 1 day, too early for the heart beat but so far it looks promising. I was so happy all I could keep saying was "thank you God, thank you God" for I completely believe God has a plan and this was his plan, he tried to calm my heart but I was too scared to listen to him. SO YEAH, one beautiful baby! I have so much faith that my body can do this with one baby, I have so much faith in God's plan and I know I have to hand all this over to him. I can only do everything in my power to take it easy and take care of myself and the baby and God will do the rest. It will be a long 8 months.
I will now be seen every week for ultra sounds, from now till I deliver so that makes me feel really good. I go back on Wednesday the 30th to hear the heart beat and I start with Dr. Korotkin my high risk doctor on May 12th, he said he is ready and will see me every week to monitor everything. I have so much faith in him. I will also see Dr. Grogan starting May 19th, she will monitor my pregnancy as well. Together I pray we can all bring this baby into the world full term, alive and healthy!
I ask for your continued prayers as we go through this journey, I know it is going to be an amazing time for me and my family as we all get through this pregnancy together. God is so great!

Katie and Jeff, I also wanted to say "thank you, God" for this news when I heard. You and your family deserve this and my heart soars for you. I have complete faith this is going to be the best December you've ever had. BTW...I love the Easter pictures of Kate in bunny ears. I can see she makes every struggle and heartache worth it. You have a special girl and a special family.
Love,
