On November 11, 2011 (my dad's birthday), when I was 11 days past ovulation, I decided to test. My girls' from the TTC Trio (my trying-to-concieve buddies) said I should test because of all the elevens. So I woke up when Todd left for work and went and took 2 tests. After the 5 minutes I looked and the faintest of lines were showing on both tests!
I was so excited! I texted my best friend "I'm pregnant!" I tried to go back to bed, but I couldn't sleep, so I just laid there until my doctor's office opened. I called them and asked to come in and take a blood test. I went and took it and they called later and confirmed that I was pregnant but it was very early. I was only 3 weeks and 4 days pregnant.
I left work that day and I was thinking of ways to tell Todd. Suddenly, about halfway home, I REALLY had to pee! I tried to hold it until I got home but I knew that wouldn't happen. I stopped at a Dunkin Donuts and couldn't hold it anymore. I peed in the car! I was so ashamed and embarrassed. I came home and jumped in the shower. Todd came home just as I got out. He asked what was going on. I said I had to take a shower because I had peed myself. He asked why and I said "Because apparently that's what PREGNANT people do!" He gasped and started jumping up and down and hugging me.
Yesterday at 4 weeks 4 days, I went back for another blood draw. It came back much better this time at 305, a perfectly respectable number for that point. They want me to come back next Wednesday for one more blood draw. If it is over 1500, they will then schedule my first appointment and ultrasound.
