So far so good...except for this darn cold.

Well I got the results of the blood test I had on Thursday, which is that day I first tested positive with a dollar store test. Boy was I surprised to find out my quantitative level was only 13, boy those dollar store tests are sensitive. So RE had called on Friday to let me know that it was a low positive and wanted to know if I missed my period yet. I told her it wasn't due till the following week and she though it looked hopeful.

So I went for more blood work on Monday and got the results yesterday. They were hoping for a number in the 50's or higher and it was 117. So far so good. And my boobs still hurt! Yeah!

On another note I have been battling a cold since last Monday which is the main reason I suspected I might be pregnant. I seem to always get a really bad cold as soon as implantation happens. Finally went to the Dr since I am just not getting any better, just horrible congestion and coughing non stop. Dr says it is a sinus infection and an ear infection, so he put me on antibiotics. Hope they help since I can't take anything else for now.

So I am just taking it day by day, trying not to be to hopeful or too pessimistic. I am still freaked out by every twinge, and constantly poking my boobs to see if they are still sore. And don't ask me how many tests I have peed on, because I am too embarrassed to give you the real number. At some moments I am not sure if I can do this again, but I know that I can't give up. My period is actually due tomorrow, so I am still afraid every time I go to the bathroom. But that is just the way it is for me.

I am off to have more blood work and I will get the results tomorrow. Thank you all for the hope and prayers, it really means the world to me!

If you've had an hcg number greater than 100 and you haven't even missed AF yet, that is awesome!! Are you on progesterone? I'm praying this one is your miracle baby:-)

Wow! Those Dollar trees are sensitive! I'm so glad you are doing well. I've been checking back to see what's new. I'm still waiting for AF after the d&c. It's been 5 weeks. I also started acupuncture treatments last week. I hope I get pregnant again as easy as you did.

I agree with Hillary, that's awesome for not even missing your period, yet!
