I am so excited I am shaking! I went to the Dr today to confirm the BFP i got at home yesterday. My regular Dr was out of the office so one of his associates ordered the test.

First, they had me pee in a cup, and they said it was a negative. I told them that I had to be pregnant. I got a BFP yesterday morning, my bbs are sore as heck and have huge blue veins now (tmi?), my nose is stuffed up, I am exhausted, I am having slight uterine twinges...all the things that I have experience with my past pregnancies. Also, with my last two pregnancies the Drs tests have shown a BFN and a week later a BFP (I guess I have a low hCG count at the beginning).

By then the Dr who had ordered the first test had left to deliver a baby (a sign?) so his nurse ordered a blood test. The guy in the lab was so nice and rushed the order through even though he had other tests to run. The whole time I was sitting there I was dreading another BFN. I almost had myself convinced it was all in my head. When the nurse called me back and told me that there was a slight positive all I could do was cry.

I have an appointment to see my regular Dr on Wed. so I don't have an 'official' due date yet. According to my charts though, it should be somewhere around Dec 17th.
