So, I've been doing OPKs and got a + today. Then I had a strange feeling and just thought for kicks I'd take a HPT for some reason and it was positive!!!! I then ran out and bought an FRER and a CVS digital and both were + as well!! I'm so freaking excited! I called my doctor and they're going to get me in for an appt tomorrow to check levels. They also might want to do an early u/s since my one and only PPAF was June 21. They also said an OPK can often look positive when you're pregnant because HCG and LH are really close molecularly or something like that. The stupid advice nurse was like "when did you stop nursing" and I said "i'm still nursing" and she said "well you should stop! your new baby needs all the nutrition from you!". Dumb nurse! Please cross your fingers, send prayers, whatever you can that everything looks good at my appt!

Anyway, here's pics of my BFPs (the internet cheapies are a lil' hard to see) and if you're on FB with me pls don't mention it there!

Congratulations!!! And don't listen to that dumb nurse. It's perfectly fine, and NORMAL to nurse through a pregnancy. I've done it once before and plan to do it again. If you have any questions, let me know!

Yay! Congrats! And keep nursing as long as you and your daughter want if you feel up to it! That nurse is misinformed.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Thanks for all the congrats ladies! My doctor called me and we're pretty sure I'm about 4-5 weeks along. 5 weeks and some odd days would be based on LMP, but I think I might be less than yet. Anyway, she's going to do an early u/s on the 11th to measure and everything. We decided to wait a little for the u/s in hopes that there will be a heartbeat and I won't have to go back the next week for another u/s.

So, I have to wait 2 weeks now, but I'm on prenatals still from Lily and I should be good to go!

Nikki, they decided against checking my levels until after the u/s if necessary. They said that the range of levels is so varied it'd be hard to estimate how far along I am that way.
