The Big 2-8 Today!!!
So, this is the first Blog entry in over a week, since Marc and I received some news, concerning our pregnancy.
Its been a long week, and beleive me, this is not the post that I thought I would be making after our first appointment! It has been tough, fearing the unknown, but with Marc's support as well as our friends and family, we are going to come through this stronger. We have a follow up appointment tomorrow, and should know some more then.
It has really made quite an impact on our marriage. You think you love someone, but then realize you can love them so much more, especially when times are tough.
Carolyn really put a smile on my face today, when this edible bouquet showed up at my office with a Happy Birthday Balloon attached, from, http://www.ediblearrangements.com/Default.aspx

According to the ultrasound, Ash's gestational sac is empty and measured 5 1/2 weeks. Her blood was taken last Wednesday and again on Friday (her poor arm ). The initial bloodwork done on Wednesday revealed her HCG levels to be quite low at 9,000. The blood taken on Friday revealed those very numbers to have increased to 13,000. While something still doesn't seem right - as they are usually supposed to double - we're hoping for the best. If indeed this is a troubled pregnancy, it's Ok, these things happen and we're there for each other and will try again soon! Our initial reaction was frustration followed by "shit, we told so many people" but in the end, everyone we told we love so it doesn't really matter. Yes - we love 73 people. Most importantly, we're there for each other in times like this and any mountain can be climbed, sometimes you just slide to the bottom. Love Marc
