I'm done with all the hcg boosters, last one was Sunday. I tested this morning with a Dollar Tree test and got a very faint positive (12DPO=9DP3DT). It could very well be false but I'm choosing to stay hopeful that it will be darker tomorrow instead of lighter.

GOOD LUCK! Baby dust to you! I lurk a lot just reading the posts but I keep you ladies in my thoughts. Hubby and I are still trying. I have not used Clomid since the first cycle back in Nov. I want to try naturally on my own since I did not have anything wrong to stop conception. I know you have gone thru a lot. I like that even when you all are down you are still there for each other. Keep us posted!

I used another Dollar Tree and an Answer (early result) brand this morning. The DT wasn't any darker or lighter than yesterday. The Answer was very dark positive. Not as dark as the control but unmistakably there even from a distance. Still not sure, gonna test again tomorrow. Ugh!

I read in another post that your 2ww is dragging by. That sucks I know. At least this week is almost over!! Praying for BFP's all around!!!

Ok so I still have nothing more definitive! The Dollar Tree test was darker than yesterday but not by a whole lot. The Answer at first glance looked the same as yesterday but if you really stare at it it looks barely lighter! Ugh! So annoying! Testing again tomorrow!

I'm 11 days post 3 day transfer which = 14 DPO. They didn't give me a specific day to wait. When they scheduled the betas I was originally supposed to go in today and Monday. Since they decided they wanted me to do one last booster this past Sunday they moved the betas to Monday (8 days past booster) and Wednesday. I kinda thought it was just to make them feel better since there would be no question about the booster still showing up on Monday. But I don't know if tomorrow or Sunday could be long enough for me to know on a hpt. Does that make sense? I'm just very hesitant to let myself get excited, I want to know one way or the other! Gah!

Wow I'm so hopeful for you. I read and my SIL who has done IVF's was told to wait 12 days past booster with an hpt.. but every case is different and they will be able to tell from a blood draw if you are pregnant. It must be so excrutiating to see those BFP's, try NOT to get excited.. and wonder and wonder if this is finally 'it'! Wow I will be praying for you!! Try not to go crazy, though if I was you, I probably already would be. lol

mrs62610 replied to Leah25Brooke2's response:
If I look up "boosters" it tells you to wait longer but it seems that alot of them are 250mcg which is the regular dose only used as a booster. My boosters were (1) 250mcg dose diluted in water to make 3 different boosters. So, it was basically 1/3 the normal dose and I can't find any info online for that. I would think though if with the full dose you should wait 12 days for a hpt then 1/3 I would think would be out within 4? I had explained that in another thread but didn't realize I hadn't mentioned it here. Sorry about that. My brain is going a thousand miles a minute!
