I'm Pregnant!

The first round of Clomid worked! We are expecting our newest addition on August 18th! I am thrilled! On December 6th (9dpo), i was going to see a doctor regarding my high fevers and sore throat. I knew it was probably strep throat and I was going to be put on antibiotics. I decided to test that day because some medications are not safe to take while pregnant. I thought it would be negative because I was not expecting my period for another 3-4 days. I shocked to see a very faint line! I went into work for a rapid strep test and a blood test to confirm the pregnancy. The blood test came back positive (as did the strep test)! I took another test on the 9th (the day my period was supposed to start) and it was definetly positive.

We had an ultrasoubd on 12/22 (5w5d) and they saw a little fetal pole but it was too early to see a heartbeat. I went back on 1/5/2012 (7w5d)for another u/s and we saw our baby with a heartbeat! The heartbeat was 156!

I am 8 weeks along today. Now I have to decide whether we will find out the gender at 20 weeks or wait until delivery.
