Still in Shock!

I am still in complete and utter shock! Yesterday I used my last 4 pregnancy tests and started to panic because I couldn't test again today. So I went out to Wally World and bought a 2 pack of digital tests. This morning I woke up at 4 am and could not go back to sleep, I had to test again. Another positive! So that makes 4 different positives with 4 different brands of tests! A little obsessive, wouldn't you say? After that I couldn't fall back asleep so I talked hubby into taking me to breakfast at Cracker Barrel. He is getting ready now and I am sitting here surrounded my my positive tests. I just can't stop looking at them!!

I am driving to the clinic this morning and will call them from the parking lot to talk them into doing my beta today. We want to announce the pregnancy this Sunday at church when some friends are in town, but I would feel better doing so if I have a blood test to confirm. Considering I am almost out of all of my meds and need to order ASAP, I am really hoping that they will let me test today. If all else fails I will cry! Hey, what can I say? I am pregnant so I am allowed! Wow! I am pregnant!!!! I have always imagined what it would be like to say that but it feels so different actually doing it.

Because I got such an early BFP (5 days after transfer) I am hoping that it is twins! I am still a little scared that it is quads though! Dec 18 2009, 04:51 AM

Funny story: I have had a reoccurring dream of having quads. Hubby and I were out to eat at Chili's the other night and we ordered from their 2/$20 menu. We look down at our plates when they arrived and started laughing. I had ordered 4 mini tacos and he had 4 mini burgers. We prayed that it wasn't a "sign"!!!

I will update you all later!!


  1. I just had to comment -- I had a vivid dream of quads and sure enough, 2 days later I got the ultrasound confirming quads. Crazy! The odds are very low though, so don't worry too much.


  2. I had a BFP after 5 days also and have one sweet baby! Quads would be awesome!

  3. Wow! That is really early to see a +. Congrats! How awesome! I can't wait to hear your hcg #!! All the best!

  4. So excited for you Jess, truly the best Christmas gift ever!!!


I love comments! They make me feel important.
