It's official

So today is our OTD. For the first time it was a urine test and not beta. I took sample of my FMU and they run it through a machine. The machine then tells you if a retest is required, it's positive or negative.

Nurse came back into the room and told me to stop worrying it came back positive and gave both me and my husband a hug. I still can't quite believe it but I am so relieved to hear those words again and that I no longer need to torture myself with thickness of lines.

I have to take crinone gel for another 8 weeks which I didn't think I'd have to as it was a fresh cycle but comfortable with that as was worried progesterone levels might not be sufficient. Of course last time the progesterone kept the bleeding from miscarriage away so double edged sword.

I also have to continue the clexane injections for another 8 weeks.

My first scan day is 10th November at 7 weeks.

Symptoms wise other than fatigue my main things are stitch like niggle in my left side which varies day to day, my skin seems to be more oily so look like I have a sheen to my face and ive had a breakout of spots.

That is amazing. Congratulations you deserve it. You have been so persistent during this journey. Just try to relax I found it so difficult once I had the positive result. I kept testing until 12 weeks.

Best of luck you deserve all the happiness in the world. Good luck with your little bean xxx

Thank you. I have no more tests, well other than ICs but they are rubbish. I imagine if they were to take my BP in 3 weeks time before scan it'll be through the roof but taking everything one day at a time. X
