In light of some of the not-so-positive news, I totally will not be upset or offended if any of you choose to ignore this post.
Okay, so I have a low positive-- 13-- which totally makes sense because I am only 2 days post implantation dip (the earliest detectable day). I have to go back on Friday morning to take another beta to see if my number has increased significantly enough to say it's a real, promising pregnancy that might stick.
With my age, I'm a little concerned about being able to carry a baby to term-- as well as have a healthy baby-- but my RE didn't seem all that concerned and I'll most likely go on progesterone supps, so that will help my uterus be hospitable.
I am tentatively happy about this, but won't announce anything to my family until our combined birthday-father's day-July 4th celebration, and then I'll only tell a couple close friends until after the first trimester... Then I'll start announcing to others.
I hope I can still hang out here and give support to you all-- I feel like there is no way I can stay away from all of you to share the highs and lows. There is a huge part of me that feels that-- as thrilled as I am to be graduating possibly from here-- there are so many of you who have gone through this for so much longer and with so many more setbacks and you deserve this more than I do...
I want to see all of us on the same/other side as soon as possible!
