I need help interpreting lines and BBT (poss. bfp mentioned)

So as many of you saw, I posted this on the TTC 2+ years Board

:help: So I am 9dpiui and 11dpt. I tested on 7dpuiui (in the afternoon) and got a light + (definitely still the trigger). I tested today on 2ndMU and got an equivalently light +. I only took 6500 units of hcg 11 days ago. Would that still be in my system 11 days later? And why would they be the same shade? Wouldn't it be lighter if trigger and darker if bfp?

This is so freaking annoying. One lady on the boards said she never tested it out of her system. Do you think the same thing is happening? B\c I have absolutely NO symptoms...

I wish I just had peace of mind b\c I have to go to a wedding tonight. With all the stuff that's going on in my life, a night of fun (i.e., drinking) would not hurt (especially b\c I hate this couple!! ).

Anyone with similar experiences?? :confused::bigangry:

EDIT 7/11/11 These are the HPT from the last few days.

Here are the pictures from the last 9dpiui, 10dpiui, and 11dpiui. You can't really see the line from 9dpiui, but its there in real life. Thoughts? It can't still be the trigger, right??

These are taken in the middle of the afternoon on 9dpiui and 10dpiui. Again, you can't really see 9dpiui, but its there.

I was starting to get excited, but then saw that my temps dropped this morning (by about .1)!!! :bigangry: If you look at my chart, I didn't post my temps until after IUI (but I have them written at home. Coverline is about 97.2).

So now I'm worrying (1) it is trigger even though its getting darker or (2) it is chemical pregnancy. Thoughts??? Does anyone have experience with temp dropping after a bfp?

On a good note, DH said "well, it's a move in the right direction. We have never seen two lines, now we have. Next time we'll see a baby..." My beta is Thurs. I'm almost half-tempted to call the doc and see if they'll do the beta tomorrow morning...

I don't have any experience with iui's, but I did have a HUGE temp drop with my second on 10DPO. Like..a full point maybe and it was way below coverline. I didn't even POAS because of it. By 12DPO when I hadn't had AF yet (the longest I had gone at that point was 9DPO) I tested and it was a BFP.

Like I said, I have no experience/knowledge with IUI, but I would think if it was trigger it wouldn't keep getting darker. I hope this is it for you though and KUP!! Smile

Ughh im keeping fingers and toes crossed for you my dear!! I hope its a real pregnancy and your testing positive because you are pregnant !!! If it was the meds would it be getting progressively darker like that?

I definitely think you have a BFP on your hands. If it was just the trigger your lines wouldn't be getting darker and your last test is significantly darker than your first. Fingers crossed for you.

I didn't get a trigger when I got my IUI, so I don't know from personal experience. But I agree with Lenora. I think that is a real BFP. Smile

Pretty sure you have a BFP on your hands! I'm fairly confident your trigger is out of your system and your tests are definitely getting darker. Eeek!!! So cautiously excited! Can't wait for your beta, sweetie!!

I would think that if it was the trigger, the test would be getting lighter. Good luck with your beta, but I think that is for real.

I agree with PP, I think that you have a bfp! If it was the trigger, I don't think your lines would be getting darker, so congrats!!

I don't have experience with IUI, but I don't think the lines on the test would get darker if it was the trigger leaving? I'm really hoping this is it for you!!

Yep that's what my BFP's looked like. The days where I was closer to my trigger, the lines were there but very light. Then the farther I got out, the darker the lines got. The trigger leaves your system. I think you are preggo!!!

Thanks, Tasha!!! I'm so scared and pessimistic after 18.5 months of trying (I don't want to sound ungrateful though, ESP when I know other women have been trying longer). So thank you for baby dust and keep it coming Smile

Enough about me. Any news from you?? Or any others in 2ww???

I also don't have experience with IUIs, but it seems as though if they were getting darker, logically you would be producing MORE hCG, right?

I'm not sure, though, cause I know you're not supposed to use pregnancy tests as an indicator of hCG levels... But, I mean, come on! Logically, right?!?! Smile Those tests are getting DARKER! I am also pretty optimistic for you. Wink

I really, really hope this is it for you and you get confirmation from your doctor!!! KUP!!!

Oh and I wouldn't worry about your BBT temperature. As long as you are on progesterone supplements your temp will be high and it will vary. I temped for about 3-4 weeks after my BFP and there was a lot of variation from day to day.

I'm going to chime in with everyone else - lines getting darker to me would mean BFP!

Here's hoping you get good news come Thursday!

I did IVF 3 times and several IUI's with triggers. It leaves your system at about 1000IU per day. I always did the 10,000IU. I tested it out and it was gone by day 7. I say you are knocked up Smile

Hope this helps.

That is definitely a BFP. My trigger was a greater amount and I always tested BFN by 9dpiui. It is getting beautifully darker!! Congrats girl!!
