I try to take rainbow light (one a day) which is a food based vitamin.  I like what it's them, but they smell something horrid to the point where over the last few pregnancies, I have learned to...

Maybe.  I took crinone as a precaution and I felt horrible.  My MS wasn't any worse than normal, but I was exhausted.
Now, it's hard to tell if I would be less or more exhausted without it, because...

I've never gotten sick ever before week 7.  And then I feel like absolutely dog crap.  Fast. So take advantage of the time you have right now and do things you might not be able to do shortly.

I never get allergies.  I could sit in a dusty attic with inhaling pollen and cat hair and not even sneeze or sniffle.
But this year, my luck has run out.  I have the worst allergies from I'm...

I agree, closer to 6 weeks.  The HCG would be much higher at 10 weeks.  MUCH.
My HCG was 4500 at 5 weeks on the dot this time around.

I would say that's positive but I would continue taking them every 12 hours or so until they go back to negative.

I think 16 or 17 weeks was my earliest. I do laugh when I read people feeling the baby at 8 weeks or something but 12 weeks isn't that super early.

That's just like the lines I got with my last son on my 11 and 13dpo tests.  Very dark quickly (I also got a + albeit faint at 8dpo).
He just turned 14 months. 
 
Congrats!

Were you charting and temping?  If you are really sure of your ovulation, and you had sex 2 days after your temp rose, there wouldn't really be an egg to fertilize.  Sorry.
