cautiously optimistic

It's official...I'm pregnant!!

My beta wasn't scheduled until Thursday and I knew there was no way I would hold off testing until then. I debated about testing last Friday but we were headed out of town for the weekend and I wanted to live in blissful ignorance and enjoy our little mini-vaca. So about a week ago, I decided today would be the day. I didn't buy any tests until last night to keep myself from cheating earlier and I must have woken up 10 times overnight. By about 3, I had to pee but wouldn't let myself get up and go so I had the best "morning sample."

I took the test about 7:30 this morning and it instantly turned postive (used a FRER). The test line was at least as dark as the control line maybe darker. The phone lines at the RE don't open for non-emergencies until 9 so I called then and asked if I could move up my beta to tomorrow. They asked me if I wanted to come in today but Jr. had a class until a little after 10 and I knew 10:30 is the cut-off time. They told me they would hold off pickup until 11 if I wanted to come by so I jumped on the offer and had my beta this morning.

After anxiously waiting all afternoon, I got my first number...284!!! I got the official congratulations and even a congratulatory e-mail from our doctor. I go back on Wednesday for the next number...praying we get another good one...I don't know how I can go through what we did in March again.

So for now, we are cautiously optimistic. With the ectopic back in March, it took me 2 weeks to get a number this high, but I know we still have a long way to go.

Thanks to everyone for that happy thoughts and prayers during this 2ww!!
