You Won't Believe This!!!

So, this weekend my husband and I caught a nasty little stomach bug which caused fevers, abdominal pain and vomiting. Great fun and well-used toilets. But that's not the important part of the story.

The important part of the story is that I was late for my period and I ignored that fact since I was actually worried about dropping over dead this weekend from the vomiting. (Pretty sure it's possible.)

Well, I took a pregnancy test at work today thinking that something may be brewing, and guess what? It was POSITIVE!!! I am pregnant. Never thought I'd get to write that on my blog without it being April Fool's Day, but here we are.


Got my levels back today for those who care and/or know about them:
HCG: 647
Progesterone: 21.7
Doc is thrilled, I am thrilled, Aaron is thrilled. We are hopeful and terrified at the same time. I'm definitely in the scary window period, so I'm asking for LOTS of prayers and positive thoughts in the upcoming weeks. And some hand-holding and encouragement if this goes wrong. You all have been the best support system I could ever have asked for and I love each one of you SOOO much!!!

I'm hoping this blog turns into my journey through stretch marks, weird cravings, and bad attitudes. Nothing would make me happier... I'll be getting a 2nd beta on Thursday to make sure my levels are going up and then my 1st ultrasound on the 28th. (My pics are hard to see completely because I didn't take pics until 8 hours after I took the test, but the test line was darker than the control.)

Hang in there, little embryo!!!
