Yes or No?

Yes is better.


Oh, how I longed to see this beautiful word pop up on this little screen last pregnancy, but it never did. It kept yelling at me morning after morning with the curse word of: No - That was the first sign that my pregnancy was headed downhill. I am so grateful today was an easy YES+.

And for those of you who like to see progression, here's yesterday's compared to today's. The second line started showing after only about a minute.

I'm still cautiously optimistic after enduring two miscarriages. I think I'll be pretty scared until I see a heartbeat, which is further than we've ever been before. Who am I kidding? I'll probably still be terrified after that. But today I am relishing in these early milestones that never occurred this early on in the past. I'm taking each day at a time, and so far each day has brought reassurance, hope, and joy.

    1. I think that the FRER digi is sensitive to 18hcg. I tested with a CBE digi and that also went positive and I think those are 25. I'm not 100% sure though!

  2. Congratulations! That positive test result is a beautiful sight! All the best for your betas too x

  5. Yes....try as hard as you can to just live in the joy of each day that your baby (or babies) are with you...there will be plenty of nerve wracking days ahead, but focusing on the joy whenever you can is such a wonderful blessing. I'm SO happy for you! :) - Kelly

  18. Every time I've been pregnant I've bought something for the baby(ies). You never know what could happen, and it may be the last pregnancy any of us ever get, so I always celebrate it no matter brief. I recommend you do the same.

    1. It's funny you would mention this because I've done the exact same thing with my three. :) In fact, yesterday Kevin and I went to the store and bought a bunch of baby books. At first, Kevin was reluctant because we had a beautiful memory of us at Barnes and Noble the first time before disaster struck, but it turned out to be wonderful. No matter how our child comes to us, we will have these things waiting for them. :)

      I also got a snowflake candy dish at target, if that counts. But I guess that's more for me (especially the candy that it will hold lol)

      You're almost leaving on your trip! EEEK! SO EXCITING! :)

    1. You can count on me peeing on anything and everything LOL! Although I've been much more tame than my first time. I was POAS every few hours (SMH) This time at most I'm POAS morning and night at most. :) It's more fun when things are going right instead of not right!

      Delete
  23. My husband thought I was crazy when I wanted to POAS after we had already gotten a positive blood test.... But like you said, I just had to see that "yes +"

    I too am very nervous. I don't think I'm going to feel good about it until the baby is in my arms....

  29. I'm just now catching up after being gone for a week for the holiday.


    CONGRATULATIONS!

    I know it's scary, but every day when I was pregnant with my take-home baby, I would tell myself "Today I am pregnant and I love my baby."

    Just keep telling yourself that over and over and it helps.
