It worked! We're pregnant!

Today is 6 days past 5 day transfer and I got a light but definitely noticable line on 3 tests. One IC and two FRERs. I was going to surprise Joe in a fun way, but I can't stop crying and he noticed. I showed him the test and he just hugged me and kissed me over and over. We're going to tell all the family tonight at the family Christmas dinner.

Thank you wonderful ladies for being my cheerleaders and support!!!

***UPDATE***

10 days past 5 day transfer beta result: 259! Dr. says it's either a very strong pregnancy or two babies!!! PRAISE GOD!!

I've always wanted to share my BFP picture! It's actually much easier to see in real life. So pretty!

Thank ya'll so much!!!

I feel pretty normal and good! Here are my "symptoms":

1. light to medium cramps for several days. They felt just like AF was on her way.
2. Pretty wet down there. A few times I could feel myself dripping.
3. Maybe a little more gassy than normal. I NEVER eat fast food, but Thursday I was dying for a Krystal cheeseburger and I've been reaping the "rewards" of that little transgression.
4. I've been waking up in the middle of the night the past few nights and can't go back to sleep for hours.
5. My back was hurting last night, like it was about to go out. That's not normal at all for me.

I think that's about all. Some of these may be completely unrelated to pregnancy, but I always enjoy reading about other's early symptoms.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
