Shocked! (trigs)

Hi Girls!

I am cautiously optmistic as I write this post... I got a faint positive on a HPT this morning!!! I am still in shock wondering if this is really true. As you all know, I have been waiting for AF to start BCP for my IVF cycle. I started spotting Friday, nothing Saturday, and a little when I wiped yesterday. My temp as been holding steady, when it should have taken a nosedive Saturday morning.

Since we are going away Wednesday and I needed to start BCP on CD3 and I didn't know when AF was going to show, I knew I needed to test so I could call and get my prescription from the RE. Well, yesterday my temp was 98.08 and this morning it was 98.61! So I tested! I woke DH out of dead sleep and of course he had no idea what I was talking about, since I told him I would be starting BCP this week, but he saw the faint line too!

Oh, and here's a question. I get up a couple times a night to pee and I got up at 3:30 to pee and then tested at 6:15 - do you think this would effect the outcome of the HPT?

I have a call into my nurse at the RE's office and I hope to have b/w today.. I'll keep you posted!

I just want to say that I love you all from the bottom of my heart, and you are in my prayers daily. You are my friends and I could not have come this far without you. (((HUGS)))

I forgot to ask....Have you been having any symptoms?

Emily that is so great!! So this is all natural then? That is so amazing! I am so thrilled for you!

As for your test question, the only thing that would affect your test by peeing in the middle of the night is your test probably is just lighter than it would have been had you held it longer.

So CONGRATULATIONS!! What a WONDERFUL Christmas present for you! I am so amazed at how many women on this board have gotten their BFP's lately and I really hope this trend continues and we can all finally move on.

Have a very H&H 9 months!

EMILY!! You deserve this - I will be thinking of you! Let us know how your B/W goes.

You are giving me hope that IUIs can work.

Thanks so much girls! It warms my heart to read your responses!

Cassidy - Yes, this was a natural cycle! I believe it was an act of God!! LOL! Last C was an IUI cycle, and we were going to start IVF this cycle... what are the odds!

Becky - I am having a tiny bit of spotting and no AF. I also started to get O-like cramps on Saturday, and I'm still having them a little bit today, so I'm not sure what any of that means! I wish my nurse would just call me back already!!
LookingForTheRainbow responded:
I take back my comment about IUIs; that is even more amazing that it was natural! GL!

    I am so so happy for you! I really hope that you keep getting those positives! Please let us know when you get the BPT! I could not be more pleased that you got your BFP. I've never known anyone who has come across so genuine, caring, and optimistic, and I admire your faith so much. You've helped all of us on this board more than you can possibly know and I will really miss you. Of course, I am still ecstatic that you are able to leave! Was this an IUI C? Good luck, girlie.

    ((((STICKY VIBES))))

    Ooppps, I see this was an all natural C. Should have read the replies first.

    Everything sounds like a positive to me. You have to tell us what your RE says.

    What a miracle! And just in time for Christmas.

    I am so happy for you and DH!!!
