Default Totally shocked (PG ment)

Hello ladies,
I've been here, on these boards for almost 2 years now. Finally, we have decided to do an IVF, as we have MF, and could not conceive naturally. I have started taking Lupron already, and AF was supposed to have showed up last sunday. I knew that Lupron could cause it to be late a few days, so till about Wednesday, really thought nothing of it. Well by thursday, when AF still has not showed, I've decided to do an HPT, I left it on the counter and within less then a minute I saw 2 lines. First thing that crossed my mind is, it's a faulty stick. But I decided to call the clinic anyway, and ask if when on Lupron I could get a faulse positive. The nurse told me that not really, but to take another hpt, and come in for blood test the next morning, friday. I did another hpt, and that one showed up even quicker. Still, I thought, no way, and I wasn't going to let myself get excited and then have such a crushdown. Didn't even tell DH, the following morning had my Beta, and got a called the clinic in the late afternoon. And guess what?????? It's confirmed, I am PG, my beta was 3304, which apparently is considered very high.
So, against all odds and after trying for what felt like forever, it actually happened. I still cannot believe it, and still in total shock. But I wanted to let you know.
