+ soft announcement

I got a positive 2 days ago. Very, very light line - but getting darker everyday. I have been hesitant to say anything. For those of you that know my history, I don't usually have much trouble getting to this point. It is the following few weeks that pose the real problem. I have havd 2 early losses. The first was gone prior to ever seeing a doctor. The second was a missed m/c with no heartbeat at 7 weeks. So I am in the woods, perhaps for quite some time...

Having a blood draw today. My RE assumed I was taking the progesterone. I haven't been. I feel good about that choice, especially when I wake up in the morning with what I can only describe as the "rushes." Usually at about 6:30 am I wake and get these tingling rushes that move through my body. I got it when I was on the progesterone last month too, and remember this in my other pregnancies. I don't know what is is, but it is a familiar sensation and I feel relieved when I have it.

But then again, nothing means nothing. I am not considering myself officially on my way till I see a heartbeat. That is the milestone for me.
