Time to Spill the Beans!

It looks like a lot of people have been stopping by my blog in the last couple of days.  I wonder why? guys were hoping to find out whether I was pregnant?

I started testing Sunday.  Just four days after transfer.  Because I am a nut job.  Here is what I got:

Yes, it's negative, technically.  But I swore that if I held it in just the right light at exactly the right angle, I could see the ghost of a shadow of a line.  I made my husband look.  At first he told me I was a nut, it was negative.  Then, I think to get me to stop bothering him, he agreed that he could kind of see a line.

I swear I will never test this early again.  It made me crazy all day long.  Was it an almost line?  Would it be darker tomorrow?  Or did all negative tests look like that?  What if I wasn't pregnant and my crazy mind was giving me false hope?

Monday, I tested again, at 5 days post 5 day transfer (5dp5dt) or the equivalent of 10 days past ovulation (10dpo).  Here is what I got:

Yep, that's right, a positive!  Still faint, but definitely pink and definitely there.  Woo hoo, I couldn't wait to tell my IPs.  I waited until a slightly more reasonable hour and tried calling both of them before I left for work.  No answer - they are late sleepers.  (My IM was aghast at the fact that I have to wake up at 6:00 to leave for work.  Boy are they in for a rude awakening in about 9 months, literally!)  Then once I got to work I tried calling them one more time before I went in, still no answer.  So I left IM a voicemail with the good news.  Never heard back.  Finally at about 11:00 I emailed IF to see if they had gotten my voicemail.  They hadn't even looked at her phone yet!  Needless to say, once I finally was able to give them the news, they were over the moon excited, crying, etc.

I decided I would keep testing every couple of days just to make sure the lines are getting darker and not fading away (signalling an early miscarriage).

Here is what I got this morning:

I am so thrilled for my IPs that after all these years of trying and waiting, we were able to get pregnant on the very first try!  They so deserve it, and they are going to be great parents!  We are keeping our fingers crossed this little one (or ones!) decides to stick around for the next 9 months.


  1. Congrats! I too took a digital pregnancy test today, for a first time try for some IF's. It was positive as well!

  2. Congrats to you and your IPs!!!!
    I am hopefully starting my meds this Saturday...depending on contract.
    This is so exciting and I am looking forward to more pregnancy posts!!
