Post Update (pg mentioned)

I'm a little nervous announcing this because it becomes "real". I'm pregnant! It was a total surprise for us because after 5 1/2 years, we sort of gave up on becoming parents. We conceived "naturally". As you can imagine, I am extremely scared. I just assumed I was late because of cysts. I took a HPT Sunday morning and when it came up + I told DH that there was no way this was right, something had to be wrong with the test and we had to go and buy another brand. I took the 2nd one Monday morning and it immediately came up + again. I called my RE's office Monday morning and they advised me to come in immediately since I had already had 1 m/c and 5 1/2 years of infertility. My HCG level was 3,046 and progesterone was 15. They wanted to do an u/s on Wednesday because they thought the HCG was a little high for the date of my last period. I'm only 5 weeks, so all we could see was the gestational sac and it is in the uterus so that was all positive news. Still too early to see/hear a heartbeat. We have to have another u/s on Wednesday, April 19.

I think I'm still in shock and/or denial.
