The clinic gave me instructions to test 16 days after collection which was today February 9th. I was having weird dreams all night last night, I think it was the anxiety of knowing I had to get up and poas. I am terrible when I first wake up and was really worried I would forget, so before bed I put a container next to the toilet and put the lid down with the test on top.
I woke numerous time through the night and every time I told myself don't pee yet go back to sleep. Finally at 7.30am I gave up and got up. I didn't much fancy aiming at the test so used the container and dipped the test in. I woke J up so he got up with me and told me not to look without him. Once I had finished the dip and reattached the lid we got back in to bed. And waited. J was impatient and asked how long it takes so I told him up to 3 minutes.
We sat both nervous as to what the result would be and we were both in complete shock to read................
I have spent most of the day checking and rechecking what the test says and giggling to myself. After 18 years together this is the first time we have had a positive test. It is a miracle.
Now we have to get through the next step which will be a viability scan at the IVF clinic in 2-3 weeks. I will phone them on Monday to get the appointment booked in. So yes once again we wait, it will be a relief to get that scan done to know that the pregnancy is viable.
I do have one more test which I may do next weekend to see if it progresses. We will wait and see how I am feeling then.
For now we are just going to relax as best we can and carry on as normal.
