We interupt this broadcast

There is something I have been meaning to tell you all day. Houston, we have 2 lines here! Seriously, Can you believe it…? I (we) were in total shock. Here is how it went down:

Yesterday, Sunday August 16th woke up in the morning and POAS – NEGATIVE. I was beginning to lose hope at this point because I had been looking at this online poll of other IVFers that did a 5 day transfer. 200 people took the pool and everyone except 20 people had their positive HPT by day 6 (yesterday was my day 6). So yesterday I was feeling pretty yucky and sort of losing hope.

Then last night at 10:30pm I took another test…. Looked at in for a sec and assumed it was going to be negative. Came down stairs to get something went back up a minute or so later and there were 2 LINES! OMG. I ran downstairs to show John and asked him if I was imagining it, Nope, indeed there were 2 lines.

I was still a little freaked out so I “asked” if he would go and get me the digital test that says Pregnant, not pregnant and THIS was the result.

Then this morning I took another normal test and 2 cute pink lines showed up. Now we are cautiously optimistic and looking forward to the blood test on Friday to see what my BETA is. I sure hope that everything comes up okay because another heartaches would STINK!

I knew I couldn't’t keep it from you for much longer. So glad you are sharing in this journey with us!
