Yes, I’m technically pregnant. The nurse called this afternoon, my beta was 19.9, and she said “you are pregnant.” But, we all know that 19.9 is pretty low for a beta. This is most likely, a chemical pregnancy, that will end with me getting my period in the next few days. I’m going to keep taking the progesterone, of course, in the hopes that this is a viable pregnancy. I go back to the clinic on Tuesday for another beta. If we’ve doubled (really, more than doubled at that point), this could be it! If not… well. Yeah.
Overall, we are happy. We are actually thrilled. We are even embracing this! We are (a little bit) pregnant for the very first time. And, on our first IVF. We are so encouraged. Of course, this might work out, and I pray it does. But, we now have so much more hope for IVF in general. We’ve already come further than ever before. And, we’re going to enjoy this moment, knowing fully that it probably won’t last.
Tomorrow morning I will be taking a home pregnancy test (or three). And, I better damn see two lines. I’ve earned them.
