We got our big fat positive on Halloween. This was 9 days past ovulation, or 9DPO (five days before my missed period) for those of you that understand TTC (trying to conceive) language. It was the day after Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast and even in Ohio we had a lot of storm damage and we lost power the night before. So I took a pregnancy test in the dark with a flashlight.
Obviously I had no idea at this moment that we were going to have twins. The only slight tip off was that I was already starting to feel a little nausea, even before the four week mark. I also took a second pregnancy the next day and the faint line was instantly dark. MY initial HCG was 50.9 at 10 DPO and progesterone was 29.8.
