Today is day 32 of my cycle. I thought I would get my period around day 26. I used the second stick of the home pregnancy test I bought a couple weeks ago. The first stick I used on what I thought was five days before my missed period, or the day that the fertility pharmacy was going to charge me $0,000 for the drugs. That day it showed one line or negative so I didn't call and cancel the order. Now six days after my anticipated missed period it showed two lines or positive!!
The first line, the one that doesn't show if you aren't pregnant, was strong. The other one, the one that indicates you aren't pregnant was faint. The package says they can be different, though of course they didn't show this pattern. Could it be that all I needed was to spend a bunch of money on drugs to kick start my body?! Were we more relaxed? Did some of the other things I do make a difference? Is this a fluke? Will it last?? Oh please, oh, please, oh please!
So this would be an August or September baby [edit, yeah I can't count] - hard for school placement - either the youngest or the oldest in the class. Pregnancy through the heat of summer. Oh, please don't have this be an unhealthy future baby. Please don't have my miscarry! Please don't have this be chemical only... though I guess I am prepared if this is chemical.
So, off to call the fertility clinic to see what next step to take.
Oh, and yesterday T woke up and said he dreamed I was pregnant. :-)

It is confirmed! My BHCG (beta hcg?) is 3776 which Julie said is excellent!!!!
These numbers might be based on a 28 day cycle and I was a 26 day cycle this time (or so I thought and based on when I ovulated (approx).) So, I am to start oral progesterone, baby asperin, and prenatal vitamins. Woo hoo!
