We’re Pregnant!

Rather than stress out over the anticipation of what was going on, we did a home pregnancy test on Thursday. Mom to be came over and there was no doubt, it was positive! Since I had a three pack, I tested again on Friday and Saturday, both positives! On Saturday the test line showed up before the control line. Today I had my blood drawn for the beta, which measures the amount of hCG in your blood (the pregnancy hormone produced after implantation- this is also what hpts measure, giving you a positive or negative result). The IVF coordinator said they like to see somewhere around 70 based on our days past transfer (today we are 11 days past 5 day transfer) and mine was at 245! We are all beyond excited and looking forward to watching that number grow. I have a repeat beta on Wednesday and it should double by then. Congratulations to mom and dad to be! We are growing a baby!
