    I’ve had an emotional 24 hrs! Last night, my husband came home with that look of “I have something to tell you and it’s not good news”. He found out that his company posted a job position to fill for someone with his exact job title (he’s the only one w/ that title in his company). Then this morning, after I dropped off Ethan at school, I decided to take a pregnancy test since I’ve never made it to 16 days post ovulation with an elevated temp and no period. I got a big fat positive! It was very dark and not even first pee of the day. It’s super early, but despite years of TTC, this is the only positive I’ve had other than when I had Ethan. I’m overwhelmed! I’m also a little scared to get excited this early and of course also scared about possibly having no income or insurance with or without an extra little person. At the moment, I’m hoping all will turn out well and this is a sign of a great new start for our family.

    In case it wasn’t clear in my post, I am very excited! It’s just surreal that I’m finally pregnant! I had a blood test today at the RE which confirmed the pregnancy. The numbers look good. I have to go back next week to see if the numbers have doubled. I don’t think this will feel real until we have the first ultrasound and see a little being actually in there.

    Oh my goodness! I am overjoyed for you!! So glad to hear the numbers look good, though I can understand it seeming surreal right now.
    So sorry to hear about your husband’s job though; I really hope he’s not losing it or that he finds something else good soon! Keep us posted! Wow, what a roller-coaster of a day!

    Thanks! I’m so happy and we’re just going to keep on like everything is great until we find out otherwise :) Hoping so much this is finally going to be our baby we’ve been waiting for! I honestly thought my body wasn’t able to be pregnant again. Nice thing to prove wrong. I’ll be on pins and needles until I see everything is alright on the ultrasound (and every step of the way afterwards).

    I don’t know yet about the ultrasound. I have another blood test Friday to see if my numbers are doubling. Once the count gets above a certain number, they’ll schedule the ultrasound. If I had to guess, I’d think it would be in 2 weeks.

    Thanks. I got word back that my thyroid levels are still right where they should be (I’m hypothyroid) and I now have an appointment for March 3rd for my first ultrasound. Yeah!

    Thank you :) Now it’s the painfully long week wait for the ultrasound! I so hope everything looks great and that there’s a healthy baby in there.

    Have you found out anymore about your DH’s job?
