Trouble TTC

Thank You (BFP mentioned)

This morning I got my first ever BFP after 23 months of TTC.  I am not sure how many dpo I am, just that I'm on cycle day 26 and by CD13 I still had not gotten a positive OPK.  This month both DH and I went to separate sides of the country (him for business, Me to see my parents),  we BD'd CD13 and then did not see each other for the next 10 days.  I woke up with a migraine this morning and decided to test for some odd reason and was totally floored when a second line appeared.  

I went for my first beta this morning and I'm still waiting for the results.  I'm thinking it's very early still so I'm very very cautious at this point.  I'll update in this post with the beta later if anyone is interested.

 

Now for the mush.  I seriously don't know how I would have survived the past 23 months without all of you.  Thank you so much for all your support, expertise, and just letting me vent when needed!  I'm praying so much for everyone here.  Love you all so much!! 

 

Update:  They just called back with beta of 14 and p4 of 17.  She says my p4 is great and no need for support on that.  I freaked about the beta being lower than I expected and she said not to worry at all she has seen many early betas even lower, that there is no need to panic.  They are closed on the weekend so I requested to go for blood tomorrow just to reassure myself.  Otherwise I would have to wait until Tuesday.
