The two week wait is over

That has to have been the longest two weeks of my life!  Every other two week wait never lasted two weeks due to my endometriosis and the fact I ovulate late and my period comes within 7-8 days.  This time to know I was actually pupo and using the cyclo.gest it was a hundred times more agonising waiting to test.

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.
