Confession

I hate to be surprised.  I really really don't like it.  I am one of those terrible people who reads half of the book and then reads the end.  I do go back and read the rest of the book though, so that's something, right?  I just do much better when I know what to expect. Good or bad, if I have anything to say about it, I want to know, not be told.  

Infertiles have differing opinions about whether or not to take home pregnancy tests before their beta/blood tests.  

Given what I told you in the first paragraph you can guess which camp I'm in.  

GO TEAM POAS (Pee On A Stick)!!! 

Knowledge is power, people.  

So the question is, what new knowledge do I have? 

Two lines.

One word.

PREGNANT.  

I am pregnant with Baby Deux!!!!!!!!

...and I could not be more overwhelming grateful, hopeful and elated.  

Thank you for all the support, prayers, good thoughts and vibes.  They worked!

And now for the confession portion of the program - I started taking pregnancy tests on Thursday morning and all came back positive.  They started out faint, but have steadily gotten darker.  Today's test was definitive!

Stay tuned for beta numbers on Wednesday.  

xoxo
