***BFP Warning*** I've Been Keeping a Secret **beta update**

I took a digital hpt this morning at 7dp5dt and it came back positive! I have been getting super faint positives since 4/5dp5dt transfer but given our history I was super worried that they wouldn't get darker or that we'd end up in beta hell again and I didn't want to say anything. But we've decided to not let our past (and IF complex) ruin what should be a joyous time, and we are so cautiously happy! Beta is Monday!

Although I'm not quite ready to leave yet, I wanted to take the time to thank all of you (including grads) for all of your support and knowledge over this last year. I'm not the most voicetrous of the group, but I'm always cheering for you guys!

So beta came in at 52! It's on the low end so I'm super nervous, but for today, we're pregnant. I go back Wednesday and I'm praying that they double. Thanks for all the support ladies!

    Me: 32  DH: 33  Married: March 2004

    July 2006: started TTC
    2008: HSG (normal), couple rounds of clomid through gyno
    2008 - 2010: dragging my feet out of fear and procrastination
    October 2010: first consultation with RE, dx PCOS and fibroids (DH slightly low count/motility)
    Oct. 2010 - Dec. 2012:  In DENIAL! avoided the issue because I was scared of surgery
    January 2013: returned to RE, fibroids grew significantly
    February 2013: second HSG, fibroids pushed on tubes which blocked them somewhat
    March 2013: MRI to determine what type of surgery may be necessary

    July 29, 2013: fibroids (5) removed via robotic laparascopy
    August 2013 - Nov 2013 : benched due to recent surgery

    IUI #1, Dec. 24, 2013, BFN

    May 16, 2014: wtf consult, start prepping for IVF in June and add injects for one last IUI in the meantime
    IUI #5 started letrozole and bravelle but canceled after HSG led to new diagnosis

    May 21, 2014: third HSG, tubes blocked, one at the beginning, one hydrosalpinx??
    June 11, 2014: consult, approved to move on to IVF because the hydro is not completely blocked therefore allowing fluid to move through slowly rather than backwards
    IVF #1 August 8, 2014 - 3dt of 2 embryos, BFN
    September 17, 2014 - 4th HSG, the right tube is very patent (open!!) dye went straight through this time. Weird!
