I'm going to start by asking everyone who knows me to please keep this to themselves. I don't want others to know until I'm ready to share the news myself. IF and only IF there is any news to share. My body has a history of rejecting pregnancies and I'm at risk of exactly that happening again. I do not want pity if it does end, I hope you understand and I thank you for keeping my secret.
But for now?
I'm exactly like Will Ferrell:
6dp5dt or 11dpo
7dp5dt or 12dpo
(Early for a digital right?)
My pee did that! My pee!!!! I've never been so proud of that which we call "waste"
And if you think that was the first test I took you are wrong. I've known since Monday at 4dp5dt or 9
dpo (4 days post 5 day transfer or 9 days post ovulation
) but decided to enjoy with Jeff alone. That and I wanted to be sure, you can never be too sure. I know the HCG (pregnancy hormone) was already out of my system because I've been testing pretty much since transfer to see when it left my body, it went like this:
(For those who need this info for their
1dp5dt or 6dpo= light positive (HCG Trigger)
2dp5dt or 7dpo= negative (HCG has left the
3dp5dt or 8dpo= negative? maybe a tiny line.
4dp5dt or 9dpo = Big Fat Positive!
And it got darker and darker and darker...
I'm writing this on Thursday evening knowing that tomorrow's blood test will give me a Beta (HCG) number and I will be told by my doctor's office that I'm pregnant. I know they tested it on Wednesday as well (though I was not to expect any calls) and I hope I get both numbers to see if they are doubling or not. Since I can't edit this from my phone, I'm going to post the beta results in my title as soon as I get the call and then publish it. Which obviously already happened for you since you are reading this. Like magic! Sort of...
Jen and Mom,
I'm sorry I didn't tell you but its already enough to have to deal with possibly disappointing Jeff and myself. If I add you to the mix and tell you I tested positive to then have to take it back, well that's just more painful. Besides you know me, if you want to know what's going on just read the darn blog! :D
