I am a mom to amazing twin girls, a wife, and I work full time. I battled infertility for 2 years and over the course of treatments, a twin pregnancy, and raising twins I managed to gain about 80 lbs. I’ve lost about 50 lbs so far and would like to lose another 50 in my quest to become a hot mama.

7dp6dt: I was SOOOO wrong : )

I was waiting to post my 7dp6dt blog becuase I got a little surprise this morning.  I woke up this morning, thought "what the hell" and decided to pee on one of the 2 sticks I had left.  My thought was, at least then I'd only have 1 left for beta day.  Well after a shower I went to throw the stick away...because I just "knew" I wasn't pregnant.  I did a double take a low and behold.......









I seriously can't believe it.  I finally got to see the elusive unicorn...a positive HPT!

I called the clinic and they said I could come in for a beta today....

Today's beta- 70!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you god!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. okay, i just spent like 45 mins typing you a personal email to share some support and the babies got all crazy so i came back to post it and bamm!

    im so stinking happy for you, both of our cycles that worked were the most crazy out of the box cycles with every disaster possible and low and behold...if i didnt have faith that in his perfect time we would be parents, i would have never thought it possible

    keep us updated and remember you dont fail if you try, you will always be educated about something and the next time your all the closer...so if your test is positive then id get packing because your house will probably sell next week and closethe next day! hahaha you can only wish on that one!

  17. Yahoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH I'm so excited for you!!!!!!!! I wish I could hug and squeeze you!! You must be freaking out right now! OK, so if you're anything like me, you think that that first beta must have been some cruel joke and you've already moved on to praying about beta #2. I didn't do this, but I wish I had so my advice is take time to sit in this beautiful place called pregnant! Cause you ARE girl!!!!! And I know that beta #2 is going to be at least 175! =)
    (MAN, I'm happy for you!)

  25. WOW, congratulations!! It's so encouraging to find women on here who actually get pregnant! You must be thrilled!!

    What does 7dp6dt mean? I'm not quite at the IVF level yet -- I've been doing injectibles, etc. Should I know what this means? And should I have been having beta tests throughout my cycle?

    This is why I love ICLW! I always learn so much!

  26. Thanks everyone!

    To answer your question Blondie-7dp6dt means 7 days post 6 day transfer. And that just means I got a positive 7 days after my blastocysts made it to day 6 and they put them back inside of me.
