I still am in shock and disbelief that after a year and a half of ttc, we are finally (FINALLY) pregnant! I have been so concerned that we would never have a child of our own. I came back from my cruise with my sister Sunday night (Oct 9th), and I was about 9 days late. I had planned to order all my infertility meds for a second IUI cycle on Monday, but thought I would test just to make sure. I was SHOCKED to see 2 pink lines immediately. I was then freaking out when I saw the expiration date on the box - Oct 2005. Was this positive real? I need to test again but it was my last test! Frank wouldn't let me go to the store (well, it was 11:00pm) so I tossed and turned completely unable to sleep and was up at 5 am and at the grocery store at 6 buying $30 worth of tests. They also came up positive! Now I had to wait till 7:30 for the RE's office to open and get a beta hcg blood test. I was so scared I'd have low numbers like in June after the IUI.
I went in as soon as talked to the receptionist and drove to the office. It was agony waiting all day for the phone call. It was torture! I kept looking at the cell phone to make sure I was getting reception lol. Finally around 2:45pm the nurse called. Right away I was relieved when I heard her voice was upbeat. My beta hcg was 5,034! YES!! That was a big jump from the mere 49.2 in June. Maybe this baby would stick! Now I have to wait till Friday at 10 for an ultrasound. I just want some reassurance that everything is developing normally. I can't wait to tell my acupuncture doctor that it acupuncture actually worked! Even I was a skeptic!
