Details, details {how we found out}

By March, I was beginning to feel this way:
After my 3rd miscarriage June 2011, I really had no idea what was in store for us, fertility wise. Would we ever have a family? At what depths would we go to have a family? Was it the right time? Was I healthy enough? Infertility is a total mind suck..and all of a sudden it's all you can think about.
After my diagnosis of Lupus Anticoagulant and doing extensive research, we really started trying to conceive again in November. I'm talking the whole temping/charting/OPK mess. Months went by and we noticed it just wasn't happening for us. We started to look into international adoption. J was amazingly supportive and we would sit down and read the requirements of each country and read other people's stories about international adoption. We started to think that we really wanted to move forward in the process. We requested some information from a few different agencies and decided that we would start the process on my 25th birthday, November 2012! That was in February 2012.
March 14, 2012 marked 3 years of this infertility roller coaster we've been on. I remember feeling extra emotional on this day. On March 20th I was 11DPO and decided what the heck, I will take a test. Here's what I got:
There was obviously a second line, but for the record..I HATE the line tests, I'd much rather have a digital! So I wasn't sure to believe it or what. The next morning I took the digital and it said pregnant! To be honest, I had the most calming feeling come over me. I didn't go crying to J like I have in the past, I just took a breath and called into the bedroom from the bathroom "it's positive!" and went about getting ready for work! I did tell my bestie of course, but I really just kept everything inside. I didn't rush to make an appointment..I didn't know what to do! Do I call the Fertility clinic? Do I find an OB? Luckily, I have an awesome husband that called the fertility clinic for me. They ordered me some labs and the rest is history.... :)
I will do a part 2 of additional details soon :) Thanks for sharing this journey with me.
