It is OFFICIAL. I've been waiting to post until we had our first beta. I just got the call and 13dp5dt our HCG level came back at (drum roll) 678. I go back on Thursday for a second blood draw and we hope that number doubles, so we know the little one is growing properly!

Andrew and I actually tested on Fri and got the BIG pregnant on a digital pg test. It was SO thrilling. We were both in shock. I have no symptoms yet and we just weren't feeling totally optimistic.

Other good news, we have 4 frosties. Yep, 4 of our blasts made it to freeze, which is quite good (if I can say so myself). We have been on a roll with the good news.

Saying a little prayer for doubling......beta numbers.
