I have had five early miscarriages this year (all between 4 and 5 weeks), and now finally seem to be pregnant with a keeper!!!!!!!!!!

With the miscarriages, I would get real faint lines, which would disappear within a few days and things went downhill from there.
With this one, the lines are getting darker and darker!

I had only hcg blood level done with one of the miscarriages, and then hcg was 18 at 18dpo. Did hcg levels this week for this pregnancy and Mon (17dpo) level was 369, Wed (19dpo) was 736!!!! Almost perfect doubling. Actually, I can call it perfect, because the Mon nr was taken at 11am, while this one was at 9am, so not even the 48 hours they use for doubling time, but only 46 hours.

I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy!

Dancing around the room.

I finally got a keeper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess I can start breathing again even LOL

TONS OF STICKY BABY DUST to all of you!!!!!!!!'

Thanks for all the congrats. I am just floating on air!!! Can't stop smiling. My due date is 8/8.

No, we don't have names yet, the more babies we have, the harder it is to find good names LOL. Actually last baby wasn't named till about a week after he was born. The same might happen this time :-)
