Looks like they were right. I got a BFP this morning at 11dpo. Just took another test, and it was positive too. I've got a call in to my OB so I guess I'll be going for bloodwork later today.

I feel just terrified. As much as I've wanted this for so long, now that it has happened again, I'm just feeling almost panicky and sort of detached. I haven't been taking as good care of myself as I was when we were TTC, so that scares me even more. I just feel like I'm in shock.

You ladies are the first to know... I haven't even told DH yet. [:)]


My first hcg level was 15.8 on Wednesday, about 11dpo.

My second level was drawn today, and it came back at 20.
I should be about 13dpo now.

The nurse said that as long as the numbers were rising things are ok, but I would have been happier with a bigger increase. *bites nails* I honestly don't know that much about hcg levels, just seems like evrything I read says they should double every 48 hours. Anyone know of slower rising numbers in early pregnancy ending up with healthy babies?
