Announcing ....

Two new additions to our family.

1. Our Deck.
Only partially finished in the picture below, but currently is fully surrounded by handrails that will prevent small children dropping off the precipice. It still needs a roof, which should be going on sometime over the next few weeks.

2. I'm 8 weeks pregnant with baby #2!!
Looks like our IVF cycle this time around worked. I got the positive blood test around 4 weeks ago, and my beta HCG was 271, which my fertility specialist's office described as "strongly positive". It was definitely much higher than my blood test with Jambin, at around the same timeframe. I have my first obstetrician appointment tomorrow - hopefully he'll do a scan so that we can confirm there's only one baby growing in there.

Congratulations Shell!!!!!! Awesome news. Did you know when you made the decision not to go back to work? Or just divine providence that things have worked out this way?

I didn't want to post a congrats on your blog, as it seems that you haven't announced anything yet, so mum's the word (hehehe).

Was not yet pregnant when I quit, so it has just worked out like that. Have told most people who would check my blog, but not all!! Will announce something soon. The thought of 3 is scary!!!! I have not had a scan yet - better not be twins (twin boys would serve me right!!!)
