What? Positive? Seriously?

For those of you who know me know that we cannot (or thought we could not) get pregnant without IVF. We were given a 10% chance of getting pregnant on our own around 12 years ago when we started trying for a baby. Over the past 12 years I have taken MANY pregnancy tests hoping and praying we would have a miracle and they would be positive even when I knew what would happen. It sounds so mean to do this to myself, but you have to understand that the greatest surprise ever would be to get pregnant on my own.

Well, we were about ready for another round of IVF. We have 5 little embryos sitting waiting for us. I called our doctor last week & made an appointment for the 17th of January. The first step for IVF is to start your cycle so that you can start meds, so I've been waiting for mine. Anxiously... And nothing is happening. So, I decided to take the test... 2 lines? I reread box. Pregnant? Really? I practically ran to the phone to call Scott. I asked him to come home and then I waited. I think I was in shock. That 10 minutes was the longest ever and I think I just sat and stared at that stick the entire time. I also thought about all the snow skiing, falling off the lift, moving all sorts of furniture because I decided to rearrange everyone's rooms upstairs. Oh my goodness! I cannot believe it!!! Scott made it home, saw the test and got all excited. I'm still in shock. Only God! I'm so happy and so very anxious to see my doctor. I just happen to have my yearly appointment scheduled for Thursday. It cannot come soon enough. We are praying everything is ok. Healthy baby, long pregnancy. We are So blessed!

Oh yes, I HAD to do another test! :-)
