A post three years in the making

I am very proud to say that I am PREGNANT! I can't believe that this whole IVF thing finally worked. I have known since last Wednesday when I tested at home (yes I lost the bet to Garry). I have had three blood HCG tests done and everything is looking good as far as numbers go.
Beta #1 = 102
Beta #2 = 285
Beta #3 = 1801

Technically today I am 5 weeks pregnant. I go for the first ultrasound in about two weeks.

The last week I have been a great big mix of emotions. One minute I am happy beyond belief, the next I am terrified that I will lose the pregnancy. I don't think I will really be at ease with this until I can feel little baby kicks or I am holding our baby in my arms.

So far I haven't had much in the way of symptoms. I am tired a lot, have to get up once in the middle of the night to pee, and I am really hungry all the time, but that is it. My boobs feel fine and no nausea yet (knock on wood).

Garry is totally calm about all this. He doesn't seem to be at all worried about possible complications. I think he is excited, but he isn't showing it a whole lot yet. Maybe it will be more real for him when we find out how many are hiding in my ute.

So far the only people that know are close family and friends, so if you are friends with me on Facebook keep your lips zipped. I don't plan on announcing the pregnancy until the second trimester. Ok, I am going to go look at more baby stuff on Pinterest now.
