I just want to say thanks and to let you and myself know it was all worth
I got thru with flying colors, pink to be exact!!!
12DPO http://twitpic.com/1o1rbi

Found out yesterday with the lightest line I could ever personally call a sure thing, neg the day before that.

EDD 1/24/11 nearly perfect timing within the year, a big home move and a planned vacation and summer job all fall in my second trimester.

I'm out of town all weekend and have not told dh yet, really working on making that special for him, the medical side of this bfp bummed him out, he always dreamed of a wonderfully welcomed "oops"

The only big things that felt different this cycle is severe very cyst like cramps that came on 9DPO and lasted about half the day. I'm not a fan of over reading symptoms but my bfp was 2 days later so I bet I know right where my little eggie burrowed in!

Anyway there is no way I could have keep my sanity without this board to talk to. Thanks and don't worry I'm not running off or anything.
