IVF #1 = BFP!!!

My beta #1 came in today (13dp5dt or 18dpo) at 519 - I'm pregnant! The nurse who called (mine was not in the office, so another nurse called with the good news) asked if I already knew. And, well, dear BB followers, I confess...I did! I POAS on Friday (2/27/2010) because I started spotting & decided to test just to see wth was going on - and to my surprise, it was a BFP! The spotting slowed & stopped by that same night - I think it was the Endometrin (progesterone suppositories) irritating my cervix. I have been POAS every single morning since then to see if the line was getting darker & it has - yesterday's was darkest, even darker than the control line! This is what is sitting in my bathroom right now:

I haven't taken a pic of yesterday's (where the line was darker) & I didn't POAS this morning since I knew I was doing my beta today! I go in Friday for a follow up beta, but in the mean time, I am to continue all my meds as I'm taking them now except reduce my Endometrin to twice a day. I'm very happy about that because that means I won't have to do them at work anymore! We will likely have our first u/s in a couple weeks.

I don't have too many words to express how I feel right now - I think I'm still in a lot of shock that this is actually real. Mr. Worry Bud & I are very cautiously excited about everything & giving praise to God for this amazing blessing. I truly want to thank each of you for all the thoughts & prayers you have been sending our way...it all means so so much to us. Please don't stop - we still have several hurdles to get over & will definitely appreciate your continued T&P. But, for today - I am pregnant & I love my baby(ies)! Many blessings to each of you.
