Change of Plans (warning) — The Bump
TTC after 35

Change of Plans (warning)

The wedding is still on - no change in that, and I should hope not with all the hand-crafting I've been doing! 

What other way is there to say this? 

I got a BFP on a CBE digital (weeks estimator) about an hour ago. I am in utter and complete shock.

I had that instinctual feeling that I had when I got the BFP last May. I was sitting on the sofa typing gold ribbons into bows, and I just got up, went to the closet, pulled out the first test I touched, and peed. It came back "Pregnant" and a few seconds later "1-2". AF isn't due until Thursday. I have no idea how this is possible. We were not trying. No OPKs. No test. No treatments. In fact, we were "not trying" this cycle so that I could enjoy the bachelorette party, wedding, and honeymoon with a few libations. Here come the excuses for not drinking... :)

Anyway, it seems awfully early in my cycle to get a positive digital, but I'll take it if it means I have a normal (and growing) beta. I have my annual physical on Wednesday (and a pap, for that matter), but I think I'll go in on Monday to get a beta, especially since we WERE on treatments.

I'm so excited, a little nervous, and hopeful that it sticks. Please let this baby stick.

    Thanks, ladies. I'll be sticking around here for a little while, if that's OK. Just until I feel confident that it's OK to head on over to PA35. I'll also be updating my ttc blog (in my sig).

    You have to stick around here till after the wedding because I'm selfish and need to be kept informed.

    Beta is 207. I'm 3w5d. I go in on Wednesday for another beta to make sure it's doubling. The RE's nurse also offered to do a scan at 6 weeks, so super excited about that. :) 

    I wish I could "love it" a thousand times. That is wonderful news. How close to the wedding will the scan be. I know your getting close. Hope the next 2 1/2 weeks go by quickly.
