The results are in!

We had our blood test on Monday and it came back POSITIVE!!  My nurse, June called me and all the other nurses were cheering in the background and she told me my hcg level was 1743 and said "you are very pregnant!"

Woo hoo!!!  Music to our ears!  We are elated! 

This is still very early, but we are looking forward to what is to come :)

We went in today for an appointment and my blood test came back still showing that we are indeed pregnant 100% :) I am now 5wks and 2 days along.  For the next few weeks I will be going to the fertility doctor 2x a week on Tuesdays and Fridays.  They will continue to monitor me and make sure everything keeps going in the right direction.  Then, as long as all is continuing to go well, I will be sent to my OBGYN.

I won't lie, it is hard to not be nervous and scared that things won't work out, but I am comforted in the fact that we have made it this far.  For us, that was half the battle.  We have never been able to get pregnant on our own.  So, the fact that I am right now is a complete miracle.  We still have our snow babies (hehe) if we need to go to plan b (frozen embryo transfer), but for now- we are so very excited :)

Symptoms wise, I am feeling great!  I can't complain one bit!  I get really tired during the day and naps have become a daily thing for me.  Otherwise, I can't function.  Last night I had a small crying breakdown while we watched the season finale of Bones... it was ridiculous. Very emotional lol.  I have cramps here and there, but nothing bothersome.  Other than that... that's about it as far as symptoms so far (knock on wood it stays that way haha).  Woo hoo!!

We will keep you posted as we progress!

YAY!!!!!! I'm so excited for you two! I had similar symptoms. I cramped until about 10 weeks and was tired until about 15 weeks or so. The tiredness never really goes away completely but the symptoms are always a good sign!!! <3

Oh My Goodness!!!! I literally had chills run up and down my body when I read this. SOOOOO happy for you! And praying that all continues to go well! What a relief to finally have it happen! Take good care of yourself and remember when the symptoms hit, even though they are horrible, it usually means that there is/are (a) healthy baby(ies) in there! ;) CONGRATS!
