Cautiously Good Beta !Warning! — The Bump

Cautiously Good Beta !Warning!

I don't want to post because it's so early, but I know so many of you have been keeping me in your thoughts, and I appreciate that more than I can even express to you ladies.

8dp5dt beta = 137.4

I'm officially PG, for now. Pardon my lack of extreme enthusiasm (which truly is pushing to be let out) but I'm just super hesitant to make any assumptions. It's in the forefront of my thoughts that just three months ago I was 10wks PG. For me, it can go away, just like that. So, I don't think I'll feel any comfort at all unless I make it that far. Plus, I'm more scared because I'm very crampy, which I never have been in previous pregnancies. I just don't have a good feeling. I wish I could change that!

But, because this is a major milestone for me, as my first BFP from a IVF, I will share with you wonderful ladies one little   YAY! :)

  • It is so scary, but I'll give you an excited yay! Congrats on making it past the first hurdle. If it helps, I was extremely crampy through week 6ish. I was certain it was a bad sign. Everyone told me it was normal and I thought they were all lying to make me feel better, which is probably what you think I'm doing, now that I think about it :)

    Congrats on your first success with IVF!
