Hoping to be positive

hi, hope all is well with everyone. i am new to this site and my question is regarding false positive hpt's. i had an HCG trigger shot on 9/21 at night, then i had my FET on 9/28. so since i was in my 2WW, i decided to do a hpt on 10/10, 10/11 and 10/12. they all showed positve results (pink lines and + signs). so i am wondering if this could be true....am i really going to finally me be a mommy or is the HCG still in my system therefore giving me false hope?? i am also taking progesterone shots once a day and i don't think that can give a false positive...can it??
tomorrow i go for the blood test but i am really scared and nervous and i was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on this. my DH and i have been trying for 3 years and so far we have had 3 failed IVF's but this is the first time that i was brave enough to do a hpt before the blood tests.
thanks in advance and bay dus to all!!

The HCG from the trigger should be long gone, and progesterone can not give a false positive.  I think the tests are real.  It will of course be very important to confirm the levels with blood tests as directed by your RE!
Good luck!
