We're pregnant!

I've been so hesitant to update as I'm just a nervous wreck this time!

We did a frozen embryo transfer (FET) on May 27th.  My IF's had frozen embryos left from the last transfer in November.  We transferred one of each IF's embryos on Friday.  I felt nauseous Saturday morning.  I know everyone says it's impossible to feel pregnancy symptoms so soon after and physiologically speaking, they're right.  However, with both transfer's I felt nauseous the day after the transfer.  I don't think it's necessarily pregnancy symptoms but related to the transfer/implantation, etc.  So when I felt nauseous Saturday morning I had a GREAT feeling about this transfer!  I just knew it was going to be perfect.

Fast forward to Tuesday, June 1st.  I, being a POASaholic, tested everyday from 5dpt (5 days past transfer) and got a very, very faint line the first day.  I was ecstatic and wanted to tell my IF's immediately but I wanted to be sure so I waited until I got a positive result on a digital test.  On Thursday I tested with a digital and it didn't take long for to it show up: "Pregnant".  I was soooooooo happy!  My IF's first wedding anniversary was that weekend so I thought "what a wonderful 1st anniversary gift!"  I took a picture of the test and did a little bit of graphic design to it.  I had it printed and put it in a 5x7 frame.  I shipped it out that day and had paid extra to have it guaranteed to be there by Friday at noon.  My IF's and I had planned to skype on Friday night and have me tell them the results.  They got the packaged and opened it just moments before we skyped.  They were both overcome with joy and so happy to be expecting again. 

I've never felt so proud of my body.
