A Cautious "Hello!" — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

A Cautious "Hello!"

Hi Everyone!

Finally got my long-awaited BFP this week! My beta was done today, at 9dp5dt, and was 386!

I guess that puts me at about 4 weeks today. Obviously, it's pretty early on, but I wanted to pop over here and say hi! DH and I are both excited and nervous about this new journey- it all still seems so surreal.

Beta #2 is on Monday, U/S on 3/31. More stressful waiting ahead, lol!

Jan 2017- single FET #2: BFN
