24 hrs in peesticks

beta #1 tomorrow...



this was yesterday morning at 9dp3dt. if you squint at it like i did, you can just baaarely make out the second line. it didn't come up right away and at first i thought it was negative. i peed on it, waited, the control line popped right up. and then nothing. i just had this pit in my stomach, trying to talk myself out of it, the advantages; i can sleep late, i learned so much this cycle it wasn't a total waste, the culdocentesis makes a great story for my friends (right?) etc...when i went back a few minutes later there was just a hint of a line, but it was there.




this was this morning at 10dp3dt. i think the line's just a little darker and maybe it came up a smidge faster, but still light. i'd like to thank leah for her idea of writing the times on the sticks.




for comparison



and finally...because i've been peeing on things right, left and forward (the cats are getting nervous)...

Hi!
My cousin Katie B. led me to your site...congrats!
I've lived through an IVF cycle myself and am now about to deliver twins any day (2 embryos transferred...both stuck around)
You don't need to second guess that second line. ANY hint of a second line is a good line!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

That's what I would call a definitely positive pregnancy test! (Or four of them!) Will check in tomorrow!

Definitely a line :-)

Good luck tomorrow!

Holy cow I SO see a line! Fingers crossed for your beta!

Hey I have 20 follicles going on right now inside me. I can't imagine your 50. I am HURTING! You must have been dying!

Lori said...

How encouraging! So excited to hear the confirmation tomorrow.

Leah said...

Yay! I see lots and lots of lines. Can't wait for the beta results tomorrow.

By the way, the cats probably aren't getting nervous, they are probably jealous that you've found new places too pee that they never thought of. :-)

How sweet that you think my OCD habit of dating and timing my sticks with a Sharpie is good. It's simply necessary when you're peeing on sticks multiple times a day. If you ever want to see mine in person, you know I still have them all in my bathroom drawer at home...

Good luck tomorrow!

That's a beautiful second line!!! I'll be updating furiously tomorrow afternoon!

Good luck with the beta

Chili said...

No squinting required for any of those lines!!! Yay!

That day 9 line is not faint, hon.

BTW my lines were never especially impressive and my first beta was over 700.

Really hoping for you,

You know the bachelorette/bachelor that got married and their "big" story was that she had peed on 100 pg tests...my thought was "only 100? That's nothing!"

Pee away. I just found an unused test in my drawer this weekend and asked my husband if I should use it. He said no, I might jinx things since we now are 16w.

I see 'em!! Congrats and good luck with the beta!
