Thanks so much for the ideas Ava!  Here's what I did for my other pregnancies:  wrapped the pregnancy test stick in a watch box and gave it to him at a restaurant when we were exchanging gifts for our anniversary; wrote a card to my first born son on his first birthday and had DH read it aloud on camera as DS was opening all the gifts (the card said, "You will be a big brother in 9 months!"); wrapped up the pregnancy test stick and put it in DH's Christmas stocking; had a shirt embroidered for youngest son saying, "Big Brother to be", wrapped it, and stuck it in the middle of all of the Christmas presents.  I'm thinking of doing some kind of riddle with all the numbers like...What do 887.4, 29.6, 91513 have in common?  Give up?  A baby!  I like your idea about the photo on the cellphone thoughWink

I have my test in the morning so I should hopefully have the results before they close for the weekend!  

Have a great day!

Krista you are so cute, what a nice idea for telling dh.  I actually havent even thought how I would tell my dh if we actually are successful in conception, but I do remember see in an IVillage newsletter that had a whole heap of beautiful photos of different ways of telling your husband about it.  Maybe you can scan back through some old Ivillage newsletters, I think it was a late November or early December letter.  The kinds of ideas that are springing to my mind right now are a treasure hunt of notes with cryptic pertinent messsages leading to the positive test or blood results ??  Or perhaps a send a sexy picture of you to his phone and then a little message following saying enjoy now because I will have to work hard to get this back after the next 9 months ?? Not as much finesse as your idea,  they maybe a bit obvious or heavy handed.  I haven't had as much practice as you!!

I am dying to hear about your test results for today, they sound really good, Im not very knowledgeable on Beta scores and hcg numbers but from the little I have gleaned through this board they sound really good.  Please let us know as soon as you get the next set of results.

I cant believe you haven't told dh yet, you must be bursting to tell him.!!!!

On the m/s I so hope its mild for you, I had hyperemersis for both my pgs and ended up in hospital with dehydration and low blood pressure.  I sympathise with the nausea and hope it passes quickly.  But as you know it is so worth it at the end of it all.

Well lovely, I better go and organise lunch for ds as he is telling me he is staaaarving mum, soooo hungry, only 1 hour since morning tea!!

I cant wait to hear from you.

Thanks Ava!  I'm sending f/x your way too!

My first beta draw was yesterday and at 18dpo my HCG was 887.7 and progesterone was 29.6.  I'll go again tomorrow to see if they are doubling.  Looking back, I had a few symptoms I didn't clue into to, such as acne under my chin and on my neck (lucky me!) and ovary twinges/tenderness I didn't pay attention to.  Yesterday, I started feeling nauseous and it lasted all day.  I don't usually get m/s until later, like week 6, so I think it must be all the emotions coursing through my body. I still have the lower backache, but it is a little better after doing yoga yesterday.  I haven't told anyone yet, not even DH!  I've always done something special to tell him that we were pregnant, but I'm still trying to figure something out for this one. I was thinking I might make some type of game with the beta numbers and due date like...what do all these numbers have in common?  Any other cute ideas?  Have a great day!  Krista

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh!!!  I just tested and got a BPT too!  We were NOT trying this month and I don't even know how this is possible, but the line is really strong on the HPT and I am 17 dpo.  We were on our cruise for the last five days so I didn't temp or watch symptoms or anything.  Oh wow--I am shocked, and SO excited!!

Hooray Nina!!  I'm so excited to hear your fantastic news!!  What symptoms were you having before testing? 

AF is due today for me.  No sign yet, but no pregnancy symptoms either.  Actually, now that I think about it, my lower back is really starting to hurt--usually a sign that AF will start within hours.  We'll see....

I just got back from a cruise to Mexico with my family.  It was lots of fun and quite a challenge to keep up with everyone on the ship!  I'm off to bed to try to catch up on sleep.  Congratulations again, Nina!!

Anyone else in the 2ww?
