Oh goodness YAAAAY! Congratulations! You would laugh at my first test pictures. They were so faint my DH didn't believe me for a couple days LOL. Praying baby is snugged in tight for the next 9 months. I'd definitely give progesterone a shot, it can't hurt and can help! I can't wait to hear how your first appointment goes!

Thank you so much Angie! :) I couldn't throw the test away. I just keep going back and looking at it. LOL! It is the darkest 1st test I've ever taken. I think this little one is a strong one! (Usually I'm squinting too, and DH tells me he can't see it either. lol)

Yay congrats Julie!!! so Glad that not only was this a less wonky cycle but it was a BFP one! Definitely praying that this one is here to stay and that God will give you peace over the next few months.

Thanks Rachel. :)

Actually, I'm glad to hear that. I've been having spotting and cramping already today. I *know* it could be more from implantation. But I've been through this before and it doesn't always end up well. Although, I have to say this is the earliest I've ever had spotting and cramping. Usually I make it until 6 weeks at least~ Pray for me that I don't lose this LO, and that all of this is implantation.

My absolute best case scenario: baby is implanting really good, and that the blood that would be an SCH is escaping now. I guess if I'm going to lose this one, I'd rather it happen now when I'm not as attached to it. Every week that goes by, I will get more attached.

Oh, Lord, I just pray that I get to keep this LO and bring him/her home with me.

Thank you Angie. I think I am doing a little better. I was able to lie down when the kids took their naps and I think the cramping has mostly stopped. I haven't seen any more spotting either. I don't mind babying myself a bit if it will help. But DH is gone on business until wed. so there won't be much of that.

I'll let you ladies know if I get in to see the new dr. next week. And if I get blood work done.

It really means a lot to me that you ladies are sending your prayers my way. I don't "know" any of you in person, but I can definitely see God's love through all of you. :) It's a lot more than some people I DO know in person. lol

Praying for the cramping to subside! How are you doing today? Definitely put your feet up when you can and drink plenty of water. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers!

Thanks. :) I had my blood work done yesterday and she gave me the results today. My hcg was 163 and my progesterone was 14.5 She said that by themselves they are good numbers for being early still. I will go back tomorrow afternoon for the 48 hour re-draw to make sure my hcg is doubling. I'm pretty nervous right now, but trying to stay positive. Thank you so much for keeping me in your prayers, I definitely need them right now.

Thanks Angie. :) I will let you know when I hear back. I had my blood drawn today at 1. Last time I heard the next day, so I'm thinking that's when they'll call me back again. I'm feeling good today. :)
