We got our Big Fat Positive last Sunday my friends!! We are so overly blessed and over the moon excited.
So here is how it all went down. The Thursday before our blood work I went to the bathroom and had just a slight amount of brown blood. I bawled. I called the office (just so happen to be exactly 5 pm) I got the other doctor in the office. He calmed me down told me it might just be late implantation blood and to stay on my meds and come in as planned for bloodwork.
The next few days were spent preparing myself for the worse. Remember we put all of our viable eggs back in me. We had nothing in the freezer.
Monday was our bloodwork day. I knew that i wouldn’t be able to take the terrible news while at work so I snuck a test Sunday morning.
I was so scared.
To my surprise all of a sudden the first line started to appear. HOLY SHIT. HOLY SHIT. HOOOOLY SHIT. this was the first time I have ever seen two beautiful lines on a test. I couldn’t stop shaking. I ran out to my husband jumping up and down and yelling we did it! We did it! WE DID IT. with tears running down my face.
The first person I wanted to call was my mom. But I knew there was a chance that my betas may come back low or even negative. So scott and I decided to hold off sharing any news with family until we had betas numbers back.
I slept terribly Sunday night. Monday we went to the office at 9:40 did our bloodwork about an hour and half later my phone rang. It was the doctor….my heart sunk. The minute I heard his voice I thought instantly…this can’t be good. “Congrats Amanda! We got a strong positive!”
At my office they want numbers to be over 100. Mine was 268!
We sent out flowers to my Mom and Dad and to S Mom and Step Dad. That was one of the coolest days was getting to share the excitement with them!
We went back Wednesday for our second beta. They want at least a 60% growth. Mine wad now 515. 92% growth!!! 🙂
I have been feeling pretty good so far. Tired. Very tired. Nauseated at night. Belching a lot (gross). & night sweats (I sleep in a 60° house at night). So far I am craving Orange Juice ALL THE TIME!
We know it’s so early. And so unorthodox to announce it to our friends and family so soon. But we have been so blessed with such an amazing support group I couldn’t leave them hanging. We did announce it to our family and friends yesterday!
please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We will be going in later this month for our first ultrasound!!
