Just wanted to see if there was any update on your cycle. I'm a lurker now, but was a long time member of this board, and have been following your story. Last I saw was you were going to have your retrieval finally, but didn't see a fertilization report or transfer report. Any news? Do you have a test date soon? Hopefully you had some good embryos to transfer and are just staying quiet to keep the stress away during your TWW. Wishing you +++ vibes and let us know when you can how you're doing.

Hello! Sorry, I was feeling very bad after my retrieval so I wasn't on here. They did ICSI on the two best looking eggs (we didn't want to freeze any) only one made it to Transfer. Transferred on Day 3, 1 8-cell "perfect" embryo! I go for my 1st beta on Monday the 11th. I did test this morning with a Dollar Tree hpt and it was a faint positive but I had my last hcg booster on Sunday so I'm gonna test again tomorrow and see if it's darker. I'm just praying it will be!! Thanks for checking in!

Sorry you felt bad after your retrieval, but that's great news to have a perfect 8-cell! I didn't have any boosters w/ any of my IVF's, so just curious to know if the booster is the same dose as the initial hcg shot or not. I hope that keeps getting darker for you!!! Will be a great v-day present .

I took 1 regular dose of Ovidrel and mixed it with 1ml of water and it gave me 3 boosters. So it's only 1/3 the strength. As long as tomorrow's line is darker (or there is a line) then I will be pretty confident that it's real. My beta is scheduled for what would be 17DPO so I should be able to get a real positive this weekend!

It would be the best Valentine's present ever!!!!

Good luck!!

Hey!! I've been wondering about ya, miss hearing from you! I'm glad you're working on the next step!

I tested again this morning and the Dollar Tree test was the same as yesterday's, I also used an Answer (early result) test and it came back very dark. Not as dark as the control but definately very visible from a distance! Still gonna test again tomorrow and see if they get darker. I have 3 more cheapies and 1 more Answer. Hopefully I won't have to go out and buy more!

I actually had a dream last night that I was pregnant. I have had weird dreams about pregnancy but it is usually everyone telling me I am pregnant but I just don't believe it or I have a baby and people say it's mine but I know it's not. This time I was not questioning it at all and I was sooo happy in the dream. We'll see. If I'm not this time then I will not ever believe it until I see proof on an u/s!!!

I still have no idea!! I took more tests this morning and the DT test was darker but...... I took another Answer brand and from a distance it looked the same as yesterday's but if I stared at it it looked slightly lighter than yesterday! Agggghhhh! I would think that if it was the booster it would have gotten much lighter faster but who knows. I have tried to test out the triggers before and they are gone pretty quick for me because I have never been able to pick them up on a test. Anyway, wait, wait, and wait some more!!

mrs62610 replied to booklvr04's response:
Thank you I need some prayers!! I'm just worried about one being lighter and one darker! I don't know what to think! DH says I'm being very obsessive compulsive right now! 3 more days until I know 100%!

It's so hard not to obsess when you are going through treatment. Even after I found out I was pregnant I took my temperature everyday to make sure it was still high... and then my husband hid the thermometer. Hoping the weekend passes quickly for you! And, try not to worry about the darkness of the line! A line is a line!!!!! And all PG tests are different!

Hahahaha that's funny your DH hid the thermometer! Sounds like something mine would do!

I wouldn't necessarily worry about the darkness of the line if it wasn't for the hCG booster I had Sunday night. I just want to make sure it doesn't get lighter meaning a false positive. Oh well, I'll know for sure soon! Thanks for not saying "You're nuts! Stop testing!" Lol

Lol, I don't think any woman on here would tell you to stop testing, unless we wanted to be cyber-slapped, lol, I think the OCD just comes w/ the infertile territory....only "control" we have in this whole game, lol. It's hard not to worry about the darkness of the line, but your urine can be more concentrated one day to the next, and although you could use the same brand and same box of tests, they could still come out w/ different darknesses using the same urine....just some of the fun I think the manufacturers like to play on us, lol. It sounds very, very promising if your booster was only 1/3 of the norm...10 days for the normal trigger to be safely gone, and you had your booster Sunday, right, so this morning was 5 days past that, so would think it would be gone by now. Definitely wish you great luck not totally obsessing w/ pee sticks this weekend, lol!!! And wishing you a good strong beta # for Monday!!

Cyber-slapped!!! Hahaha!

You said exactly what I was thinking about the time. I was looking up the half-life of the full-dose and divided it by 3 and did the math (I said I was obsessed!) and it should be mostly gone if not completely! I can't believe I was actually reading about the tests being different even amongst the same brand and box just yesterday (peeonastick.com) and I still couldn't help but worry about it. Geez, I lose all sense of logical thought when I get excited, lol! Thanks for helping me come back to reality and get a grip on myself! I'm just scared to let myself get excited I guess.
