A line is a line.....right?

Okay ladies, it seems the baby bug is catching. I tested positive on a FRED tonight- a very faint line, but a line. I am excited, nervous and in shock because it usually takes 4-6 months of trying. This time we got it right on the second cycle after my last mc. Let's hope it sticks!!! Of course, we are going out of town on Friday so I will call the doctor and at least get my first round of bloodwork done tomorrow. I know they want to monitor my progesterone and hcg levels due to the two mc.

I was suspicious because I've been so clumsy- I couldn't do any of the poses in yoga tonight and yesterday I went to catch Noah in the pool and he slipped right through my hands- oops!. I finally realized my back wasn't hurting- my telltale sign of aunt flo's arrival, so I decided to test.

Hope everyone has a good night, thanks for listening!!
