Expecting a little one in June.....

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!

Today is 7 weeks! Extremely excited now! The cramping has gone away, and besides feeling tired and some really mild nausea, I'm doing really well! I think I even have a visible belly!

Went to my in-laws this week for dinner and to show them the u/s pics. I still am in disbelief when I see the u/s pics from 6 weeks, 1 day. The baby is so teeny tiny! I felt some relief last week at the appt. when the doctor said everything was normal, and we saw the flicker of the heart beating, but I still am nervous. I just want this baby so bad and I just want to be able to relax and enjoy the pregnancy.

My RE was so surprised I got pg without his meds or IUI. But the acupuncture doc wasn't surprised in the least!!! He just looked at the pics and said congrats! He was so confident the acupuncture would work, and I'm a believer now! My dad and sister finally know and everyone is really excited. Frank has also been great and is super excited too. Now I have to just wait for my first appt Oct 27th w/ my obgyn, and the 28th another appt at the RE for a 8 week u/s!! Smile
