Thrilled but terrified...

I am happy to announce that I am officially pregnant for the first time in my life!  I got my BFP!  We are thrilled but terrified now, as an even nervous wait begins - the first twelve weeks. 
Last night I was pretty down in the dumps, we both didn’t sleep very well and I woke up with a sick feeling in my stomach.  I was not looking forward to getting THE phone call.  When it finally came though I was in a meeting and had to call them back.  There is absolutely no privacy in my office, so I took a walk outside and gave them a call back.  I started crying when she gave me the good news I just couldn’t believe it had finally happened for us.  I know its early days yet, but just getting to this point is a huge step and I’m so grateful to be able to POAS and it come up positive!  My levels needed to be above 40 and I am a solid 240!
One of my first thoughts was all of you still unable to get your positive result and my heart goes out to you.  I know we’re very lucky to get our good news today and my thoughts and prayers are with you still trying.
Now we wait until next week, another blood test on Wednesday and then my first scan in around three weeks.  BJ is away at the “official” six week mark, so I’m going to talk with the doctor about having my scan either later in the week or the following week so he can come with me!  Thanks to everyone for their messages of support, they really mean a lot!  Good luck on your own journey!
