this baby hat in a day y'all
The next morning I got up and tested again- this time the line was little darker... it should get lighter if it was only the trigger shot leaving my system right? Another day of obsessive Googling- trigger shot Hcg leaves your system with a half life of about 24 hours. So technically it should have been out of my system after 7 days post trigger shot and we were at 13. We had 2 more days to wait for blood work and you know what that means? Yeah I gotta buy more pregnancy tests. Don't worry Dad, I found coupons online. Thursday I woke up at 1am and HAD to go to the bathroom. I actually had to go a lot more lately and I didn't want to think that it was a good sign. That same day I started to break out like I was back in middle school again- minus the track suit and mimicking my eye make-up after Barbra Streisand circa "Funny Girl". Since I did get up and go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, I felt my FMU (firs morning's urine) wasn't "potent" enough and that may have caused the line that showed up to not be *much darker* than the day before. HcG should double every 48 hours. Friday we had a blood test, but you know I had to test at home before heading to the doctor (thanks for not thinking I'm crazy Meg or, at least, not saying it out loud). Friday morning we got solid two dark lines on one test and a positive digital test, too! 5 Excruciating hours later, the doctor confirmed that the blood test results were also positive.
So. Our families are ELATED, but they're in the same cautiously optimistic boat we're in. So
Right now: I could sleep at any and every moment of the day.
I have so much make-up on my face covering my pregnancy related acne that it's become the consistency of spackle.

Creepy, but also sweet.)
