Post subject: Wow, I'm Pregnant!
I may sound shocked but let me explain why. I'm 33 years old and had unprotected sex often in my last 2 serious relationships (over the course of 8 years). I never got pregnant and chalked it up to the fact that I must not be able to. I have been with my fiance for over 2 years now and we are getting married in January 09. I figured it was about time that I talked to my Dr. about my concerns. He sent me for a whole bunch of tests and sent my sweetie for a sperm analysis test as well. That same week...I missed my period. I have never missed my period. Long story short did a blood test that Sat and my count came back at 89. Did it again that following Monday (a week ago yesterday) and it went down to 86. Naturally I thought I had miscarried. My Dr. (great guy) suggested to wait a week and do it again. Did it yesterday, got the results today and it's up to 460. Looks like I'm preggers! I am soooo afraid now because my level had gone down before and is still a little low so I am hoping for the best and keeping my fingers (and toes!) crossed.

Thanks guys for all the well wishes. I am SO excited but am also SO afraid of having a miscarriage (because of the count going down initially) - I don't want to get my hopes up just yet. I am just going to take it day by day and hope for the best. I have another test on Monday so here's to hoping it sky rockets!

SIGH! I spent the wknd in emerge again...was spotting. Did an ultrasound but too early in the pregnancy to see anything concrete. I have to do my hcg again on Thursday to ensure that things are ok and levels are still going up - this is soooo stressful guys - the waiting game is killing me!
