I wasn't sure where to post what, so for now this will do!

Those that don't know me we just recently did IVF. We didn't try as long as most naturally to get pregnant because according to my doc, wasn't going to happen. DH has bad swimmers I had one m/c which is how I ended up at the OBGYN then pretty quickly to the RE. He said because of my age also he didn't want to experiment on me too much. I will be 30 the end of this month.

I had my transfer on the 26th of July. We transferred on high grade A blast.. and have 3 snowbabies. I started testing out my HCG trigger 2dp5dt (for those that don't know.. that is 2 days past a 5 day transfer). Around 5dp I thought I saw a little something... but starting yesterday I knew I did. So I whipped out the big guns!

I am still really nervous and cautious because of what we just went through. IVF is pretty intense and I wasn't sure if the first try would work. So far it has so I am doing my best to be excited and be optimistic. But we all know what comes with the territory. My Beta isn't until the 9th, so I am anxious for that.

So far my pee sticks have been ok.. with my m/c they were so light and never got better. My IC this afternoon was already better than the ones I had back then. AND i could see a line on a FRER. NEVER had that happen.

So keep us in your thoughts and prayers and keep all fingers crossed. This is just so crazy to post here! We are still keeping it hush hush until after the beta. Then we will tell close family. What sucks about IVF is you can't hide a pregnancy until you are ready to tell people.. because they already know what you are up to! So they ask all the time.. so did it work? do you know yet? blah blah.. But I wanted to tell you guys of course!

Without anymore rambling... PICTURES!

Really light but you can see the transition.. and pardon my horrible hand writing



My FRERs... Today's was a lot better!

Thank you so much ladies! It's still seems so crazy and unreal. I guess after the beta it will sink in more. But those tests don't lie! DH wants me to back off on the testing. Yea right!!

Kate I hope just one! Since we just transferred one. That would be crazy!

Thanks again ladies!!! I am so anxious for the beta.. still have 6 days. GRRR!

I won't start a journal until then either... or join the DDC. I just feel like I should wait until beta and then maybe it will feel more real.

Erica - EDD is 4-12-12 Its a nice number I think!
