I'm supposed to get AF today, so last night I took a preg.nancy test just to confirm it was negative before gearing up for this FET.
Um...It was positive. 
It was REALLY positive.  I didn't take a picture, but the control line is much darker than the hcg line.
I didn't even have to wait for the test.  By the time I finished going #1, I glanced down, and it was positive.
Does this mean I'm pregnant?  I had that chemical pregnancy last March/April, and I'm a little gunshy, but you bet your bottom dollar I'm calling the RE today.  Not only because I need to update them about the cycle, but because I think I want to be monitored by them.  I know it's an out of pocket expense, but when it comes to this pregnancy...I'm trying hard not to be too excited. 
I also know that last time I started spotting at 4w1d, and that would be tomorrow.  So I'm not calling the ob/gyn for a week or so.  But the RE?  I'll be calling him as soon as they open.
I'd covet your prayers here.  We're not telling anyone IRL, for as long as we can, so that's why I'm sharing so early here.  There has to be a place to talk about it, you know?!

Oh.My.Word.  A positive pregnancy test.  Hoping for good numbers and everything!  I'll keep you all updated as soon as I know what hte plan will be.

Congratulations.....WHAT a blessing!!!!
I had a surprise pregnancy when my twins turned 6 months old. We went through 3 rounds of IVF w/ ICSI to concieve them and then BAM without even trying.....pregnant!!!
I called my RE and had them do blood tests to confirm and my first ultrasound to see the heartbeat. They were happy to oblige and I felt SO great knowing I had that extra "care".

Congratulations.....soak it in! You are PREGNANT!!!

I've never commented on your blog but wanted to say that I had the exact same thing happen to me. My daughter was conceived thru IVF and born Sept 2009. We were getting ready to do a FET in May 2011 and ended up pregnant all on our own. I'm now 14 weeks pregnant. So CONGRATS!!! I know how amazing that positive test feels!!

I am SO SOOOO excited for you! Will definitely keep you in my prayers!

If I made a list of my IVF blogs that got pregnant on their own after IVF, it would be a LOT!

Now... how they find time to actually conceive after having children is really what baffles me! :)

SO exciting! Let us know your HCG numbers.
