Well the double line was not a mirage!  b-HCG of 1061 today, and I go back in a couple of days for another test. 

I just feel so relieved, but there is a little tinge of sadness in there.  Now all my thoughts are regarding when I might lose this pregnancy.  It is so hard to just be happy and thrilled after all this frustration.  It is like waiting for the other shoe to drop. 

Right after I POAS'ed I was so excited and just wanted to call everyone and start telling them.  Of course I didn't, but I feel like I didn't because I don't fall into the normal people range.  Normal people get to announce their pregnancy on the first day of a missed period, but infertiles have to wait until everything is perfect, checked and rechecked.

Last pregnancy, that ended in miscarriage, started at 48 so we are better than that!  This place tests later though, so that isn't likely to be a fair test. 

Anyway, off to research b-HCG numbers for twins!  (just in case!!!)

(Lots of exclamation points today, I wonder why??)

Holy cow what a beta. I know its 15d3dt, but still. How many did you transfer?

Can't wait to hear the next beta #.

That is a super duper beta. MUCH better than 48! How many more sticks have you peed on now? I know you won't feel happy about this until you've made it further down the line, but this is a great start.

Fantastic news, that's one healthy number, above the median for day 18 at betabase. I hope you are feeling good!
