[:0]I got 4 positive pg tests tonight[:0][:0][:0]

after 18 days of Af???? I had decided to start my opk's for the cycle and also figured what the heck..I'll test pg too. I am not going to get excited about this because of the last 18 days, and the fact that I had to take halcion for the two dental surgeries! and I've been taking my lisinopril![:0][:0][:0]

I have an u/s tomorrow for my gallbladder..haha..since I am seeing a surgeon on friday..haha. I am going to have them also do a pelvic u/s to check on the pg. This would put me between 6-8wks along right now. I should've known with all the pudding cravings I've been having, the gallbladder bugging me, the headaches, the tiredness, bp and pulse have been up..and on and on..ugh! I am so scared and nervous right now. My dh is a little freaked out but still his optimistic self.

I debated even posting until I know more. I will get a blood hcg tomorrow, and also have them recheck my blood from yesterday for an hcg this way we'll have a 48hr read on the levels to tell us where things are going. My stomach is in butterflies right now!!! I know I won't be able to sleep now[:(]

send lots of prayers for me please![:X][:D][:)]

OH MY GOSH!!! My prayers are coming your way right now!!! Along with a big hug because I can imagine your anxiety!!

About the lisinopril - I was told that it's risky during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters but, shouldn't affect the baby at all in the 1st trimester. Hope that helps a bit!

Let us know as soon as you talk to your dr. tomorrow!!!

thank you girls! here i am at 12:30am...cannot sleep..eating a blueberry muffin. I can't eat past 4am because of the u/s thats at 1:30pm today. I am just starving!

Could someone please turn my brain off for the night?

Julie..thanks for the info on the lisinopril, I remember the peri saying that I needed to stop it as soon as I got a ++ and I was to see him @ 8wks...LOL per my ticker on FF, I am 8wks1day. no M/S, which could be a bad sign, i do have all the others though.

I'll talk to you all later today and let you know whats up. though I probably won't have results till friday I think, unless they do stat labs, hmm which they probably will. UGH! sorry :o)

Wow Elizabeth, that is a big surprise. Good Luck with the testing will be thinking of you. as for your gallbladder, the doc may do what mine has done. He has put me off for having surgery for now until I get ALOT worse or after baby is here.

Oh my goodness, Elizabeth!
What A HUGE surprise!
I am sending gigantic hugs and lots of prayers your way.
I know this part is very likely the least of your concerns, but I am right around the same week as you (7 or 8 depending on how they date, due to my early ovulation), and my morning sickness just kicked in a couple of days ago (weeks later than when I was pregnant with Ila), and is less severe. Maybe yours will kick in yet. (What a catch-22: not exactly the best feeling in the world, but we worry so much when it's absent!)

Good luck with your u/s tomorrow (no wait: TODAY!). I will be waiting anxiously to hear an update.

Boy you all are up in the middle of the night! I finally went in to bed and read for 2 hrs before going to sleep. I think i got a whole 3hrs..LOL. Now I am jsut waiting for 8am to be here. I am so starving right now!

Tracey...FF puts me at 8wks2days today, talk about skipping a few months! though I was reading online last night, not always a good thing, but I was looking under tubal pg's and I meet all the criteria so I really need to get in there today, I am so stressed! can I say that like ten times over?

Donna...now I have heard that from a few people. My gallbladder gets worse every day right now, i can barely sleep through the pain at this point. I was offered vicodin but refused- I have the baby to take care of and can't be drowsy or such while taking care of her all day.

thank you all for your supportive posts, I don't know what I'd do w/o all of you! I can't tell family of course so this is my sounding board. thank you!
