Surprise Birthday Present

Well, I guess G-d really did want to give me a great birthday present...

Earlier in the week I had been testing using OPKs just to see if I could see a rise at any point--and I got the normal VERY light line on Aug 5, 6, and 7 (which is normal and not an indicator of anything...) This also helped to show me that the hCG from my shot was out of my system. Then, once I got home on Aug 8 (after seeing the rainbow), I tested again and got a much darker line (not + for an OPK, but dark). Oops, I had already thrown my pee into the toilet so I would have to wait to do an actual HPT, but knew what I'd see. :-) I waited about an hour and then took a HPT and sure enough, VERY light BFP!!! Could barely see it, but I knew it was there. Mind you I was only 10DPR (7DPT), it wasn't even FMU and I had just peed 1 hour prior.

Today I tested again, also not with FMU and after I had peed about a 1/2 hour earlier...another BFP! This one darker (OPK was definite + this time), so my levels must be going up!! I will test again in the morning just to see a darker line and I will also have my blood test tomorrow. I called the RE's office on Friday to request my BPT be moved up, so they moved it up to Monday (tomorrow) and will also do a progesterone level just to check it.

WOO HOO!!! We did it! Let's just hope this bean decides to stick around! Due date is 4/21/09 (for anyone who is wondering) and I REALLY want to find out the gender by ultrasound when I can!
