The result today was 768, more than double 48 hours before. I have another test on Monday, and if that shows good doubling too, we get to schedule an ultrasound at the fertility clinic for the 19th. That fact made it seem more real all of a sudden. And I’m very grateful that I won’t have to wait long to see if there’s more than one embryo in there. The nurse said it’s impossible to predict anything from the levels being on the high side, so my fears about multiples are solely based on the fact that they had no idea how many eggs were mature when we finally triggered. So there could be up to 25 in there : ) But hopefully NOT! I’m going to keep my fingers crossed until Monday, but today’s result definitely made me feel better about the whole thing. It might be real. That means we need to tell our moms - probably today. Which still doesn’t feel like a good idea, but I’m going to buy a stick test on the way home, so hopefully that will make it seem more real. I’ve never ever seen even a hint of a line on any test in the last 2 years, so I’m really looking forward to it. Happy happy, and hopefully going to get to stay that way. I hope my mom is happy, but even if she is, there’s a strong history of her making me cry when I tell her good news. Hopefully we can break that pattern today, since she should be expecting this news. Craziest week ever!
