So a funny thing happened

I appear to have gotten pregnant.  Without IVF.  At age 42.8.

I went in for bloodwork to check on where my period was to start my IVF cycle, and so imagine my surprise when my RE called me to tell me that I hadn't gotten a period because my beta was 173 at what I believe is 16 dpo.  Or thereabouts.  Because I wasn't really paying attention this month as we had been taking a bit of a break.

Anyway.  I'm surprised as all get out.  And anxious.  Because, you know, this is only the very very beginning of the road and I have been here before.

Because I really thought they had mixed my results up with someone else, I went and bought the fanciest, most expensive pregnancy tests I could find. It says I'm pregnant, too.  I'm including a photo for you to see.

It's ridiculous.  Truly ridiculous.
