Totally Shocked (bfp mentioned)

I cannot believe I am typing this. I finally got a bfp for the first time in 2 years of trying. I had to poas 4 times and it still hasn't sunk in. Got my first beta done yesterday and the nurse called today to say it was positive. (Didn't give me a number, weird). I don't go back in until Monday for my second. Does that seem weird?
Got my first + on Tuesday night after a bout with all day nausea. I've retested every morning since. Haven't told DH yet. I want to surprise him. It's our 11 year (dating) anniversary coming up... today was the day we met 11 years ago. I made a special dinner and wrapped up the tests for him to open. I cannot believe I've held out this long without telling him. :)
I'm going to hang around here for a while until it seems like things are going well. I hope you all don't mind :)

  • Congratulations! 

    I don't think it's weird that they're waiting until Monday. If you had the Quantitative done tomorrow, you might not get the results until Monday. They may not want you to have the added stress over the weekend. Whereas if you go Monday, you will get the results the next day (Tuesday). 

    Please update the ? on your siggy! 

    Wishing you a H&H 9 Months!
