2 peas in the pod?

K is out of town for a few days. The morning he was leaving (5.5dp5dt) I wanted to test, because I was hoping it would be positive and then we could have a celebration. With the fresh cycle I told him over the phone, which wasn't as exciting as I had hoped, so I knew at the beginning of the FET that if I found out I was pregnant I wanted to tell him in person this time. Now, back to the morning he was leaving... I tried to be all sneaky, but my pregnancy tests were sealed in an ama.zon box. He heard me rustling, so I had to abandon my plans to test or risk ruining the suprise. All day at work I was thinking about testing. I had trouble concentrating because I wanted to test (not a very good situation when I'm trying to be a good medical student.)

When I got home from work I ran to the bathroom and peed in a cup. I hadn't been refraining from drinnking, so I had to make sure my urine was at least somewhat concentrated before dipping a nice, expensive pregnancy test into it. It looked ok. I reassured mysself that if it was negative I was testing fairly early using mid-afternoon urine. I dipped the test in and set it on the counter. As if she were a guardian of the pregnancy test, my cat jumped up on the counter and stood watch over the test for the full 3 minutes. I left my cat with the test and when I walked back in a few minutes later this is what I saw:
 

Two beautiful lines.

I haven't told K yet, because he doesn't get back till tomorrow night or Friday, but I couldn't wait to share with all of you. Thank you for all of your prayers and well wishes with this cycle. Whenever I recieve an email alerting me of your comments it makes my day. You girls are the best :)

I have thought about things and going forward I am going to believe my babies are healthy and strong and that everything will be ok. I've been imaging 2 healthy embryos growing and 2 healthy babies being born in ~9 months. 1st beta is Friday morning.
