Finally -- I'm pregnant!!!!!

My beta was 85. Anything over 5 is pregnant but CCRM likes to see it over 50. So we're firmly pregnant :)  I'm technically 4 weeks 1 day pregnant.

I'll have another beta test Sunday if I can find any place here that will do blood test on a Sunday. Then I'll get weekly blood tests to monitor little bean's progress. An ultrasound at 6 weeks 3 days.

We're still in our first trimester so like any pregnancy there is risk of miscarriage. My orders are to take it easy. No high impact exercise and no yoga (not even gentle yoga). But I can take walks and bike rides so that makes me happy. I want to be healthy for the little bean.

So of course the question what?!? We've been working so hard for the past 2 years to get pregnant. I know nothing about being pregnant. Or preparing for a baby. So any tips you all have are very welcome!

And please continue to keep us and our little bean in your thoughts.

I'll continue to post updates here.
