It's only been a month since I said goodbye to the 2IF board, after DH and I decided to discontinue fertility treatments and effectively give up for good. We put it behind us, and were shocked to find ourselves pregnant, the very first month after "giving up!" We're still in shock, actually!
I went in Friday (14dpo) for beta #1, and it was 183. Went in today (Monday, 17dpo), and beta #2 was at 611, so it's doubling. We have an ultrasound Friday to make sure it's not another ectopic.
I got so much support on this board for six months, and just had to let you ladies know. It turned out all those annoying people who said, just relax and it will happen (or it will happen as soon as you give up) were right this time. Just thought I would pass this on, in hopes it gives you ladies some hope. It really helped me to hear stories of surprise bfps. Best of luck to all of you, and I will keep lurking and praying for you all!
