Tuesday morning DS woke up, looked at my stomach, grinned and signed baby. I asked him if he knew something I didn't. He said, "Uh-huh!" Cute, but DH and I laughed if off. When AF didn't show as due yesterday morning I tested and what a surprise! DS was right!! I showed DH the BFP and he asked if I was for real. We are surprised, happy and nervous. We totally didn't think we had the timing right this cycle. I just started Synthroid last week since my levels, while normal weren't optimal. My endocrinologist told me that being low could result in cognitive defects or other harm. I really hope I started the medicine in time. I had my first Beta drawn this morning along with thyroid labs. I'm waiting to hear from the RE's office. FX!!

Thank you, ladies. Sorry it has taken me some time to post, iVillage wasn't taking my sign-in attempts until now. Yes, the RE's office did get back to me and the labs were good, My betas went from around 600 to 1500 and my TSH has improved. I've had two u/s appointments. At the first one (6w2d) we were only able to see a gestational sac. The RE said it may just be too early and I was scheduled for the next week. What a long week! At that one on Friday (7w2d) the RE said, "There's a baby in there with a beating heart!" and I was able to hear the heartbeat!! So wonderful! My next appointment is 1/21. Of course, I'm nervous but that's PAL for you.

So far not so many. A little nausea here and there, but I haven't thrown up at all. Some foods just turn my stomach, so I listen to that. Some heartburn. I had some not so nice headaches, but those could have been from new eyeglasses, and they have gone away. I had to take Zofran the whole pg with DS and even the first pp week, so we shall see.
