Seriously? Still not believing it...

Hi all,

I couldn't believe my eyes night before last... I had been clumsy all day at work, -advance TMI warning! - stopped up for a few days and had had that weird sort of pain/pulling feeling right where I'd want to have it.  On a whim took a pg test (11 days post O time according to the OPK) and got a positive result.  Have taken 4 more since then... some darker than others (maybe depending on brand?) but all positive.  So hard to imagine that it would happen on the first cycle.  Will possibly go get bloodwork done tomorrow at my clinic but I'm sick as a dog today with a cold right now and have been up with the baby and her cold since 5am already.  So wanted to go this morning but it's an hour drive and I am too miserable. 

Nervous to be too happy because of my previous losses before 8 weeks but sooo hoping that we get some good numbers on the beta test this week.  Still having that feeling of disbelief that it would be so easy this time when it wasn't before.  I'm still wondering if the egg retrieval process cleared something up when I went through the IVF. 

Cross your fingers for me to get good numbers this week!

Heather

I think I O'd on the 15th or 16th so I should only be about 14 or 15 days post-ovulation.  My beta came back at 195 which sounds pretty good to me.  I go back Tuesday morning again to make sure it's still rising.  Hoping the numbers are good then, too.  I can't quite get too happy until I know for sure that it's going in the right direction.  Just getting past 8 weeks is the goal right now, I think!

Thanks Melissa and Kelly!

Today just got my call a few minutes ago and I was up to 513, so slightly more than doubled from a bit less than 48 hours ago.  Good numbers!  U/S is scheduled for the 30th so I'll just have to cross my fingers until then.

Thanks Jamie and Dixie... Still doesn't feel real - other than the pukiness that seems to have arrived way earlier than I had it before.

My partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; babaka.wolf@gmail.com , for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will either conceive in January 2013 or February 2013,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr Babaka, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: babaka.wolf@gmail.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine.
