15dpo: 3 positive hpts.
16dpo: paranoid patient that I am, made my midwife give me a beta. beta number = 199
17dpo: took another hpt: still very positive.
18dpo: twiddling my thumbs with anxiety.
19dpo: beta #2 - 600.
Guess this is some for-reals business going on. My doubt stems from all the cramping I've been experiencing since 13dpo or so - which I thought was proof positive AF was on her merry way. Some of it feels grossly uncomfortable, enough to make me not want to stand up, but so far, so good - no spotting to accompany, no AF (although I am taking progesterone supplements). So, here's the proof positive:
I won't subject you all to photos of the other 3 hpts I fervently took this week.
P.S. - for all peeps in know IRL--please don't congratulate me on Facebook. You all have enough common sense to know this, but I've read some horror stories...didn't that happen to someone around here recently?!
P.P.S. - for all the famiglia I'll be seeing this weekend - just tap us on the shoulder and smile, please, until I'm ready to share at large. We are telling my mama and sis when we land there tomorrow morning.
