More light, squinty lines...UPDATE Post #30

Ok...OK....we've all seen my light lines before, and as always anything could happen. I like to share before I give myself a headache. Smile

So if you like to squint.... there's this nice squinter IC from yesterday. Yeah, I know it's not much...

Or this little FRER super squinter from this morning...

Of course, if you prefer not to squint, there's always this one from about 4:30 this afternoon. ROFL

EDD: July 8, 2012....please send all your sticky thoughts and prayers...heaven knows I truly need them.

:wootjump: Congratulations!!! Are you doing a beta? If so, when? So excited for you!

Thanks everyone! So far so good...usually by now I'm posting about lines being lighter and my temp dropping so I'm excited but also pretty nervous about this. My temp is still up there, and the IC line is definitely darker than yesterday. I also got this nice little thing this morning...:)

I do have a beta scheduled on Monday, as this was IUI cycle #2 for me. I tested out the trigger sometime around last Sunday so I know that isn't impacting the results. I'm hoping for a good number, but feeling extremely nervous about it until I actually get there. DH is actually pretty much reserving his enthusiasm until after that, and although I can't blame the man, it did take most of the fun out of telling him. :confused: I'm twice as grateful for all of your supportive and excited responses because of that! :bigarmhug:

But, here's the mystery for me and something for further discussion in general perhaps. The FRER is still barely visible, and it as making me quite suspicious. I'm not sure if I should be suspicious of FRERs in general, or the results I'm getting from the other tests. The FRER digi gave me that nice "yes+" yesterday, so I know that one is picking something up. But, I'm really wondering now about the redesigned FRER and if it is REALLY as sensitive as they claim it is. I'll add a picture of today below. There is a faint line, there, but I'm not sure if you can see it in the pic. Just adding my experiences...maybe it'll suddenly go blazing tomorrow (which would be the day AF is due).

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

I am SOOO excited for you!!!

And I have to say this:

NO TWO TESTS ARE EVER ALIKE.... while you get a BFP from one pack on 9DPO, you might not see line from another test until 13! They are simply not made the same and will differ greatly

You step away from those and let that Beta do the talking Smile

SOO excited for you!!!!!! Yahoo :yahoo: Yahoo :yahoo: Yahoo

I hate FRER's Jean....hate. It's a shame because they used to be really good but caused me too many problems these days. So I don't hold any stock in those... Heck, I'd rather use a CVS brand or something these days.

Beautiful dig!!!! Smile

Congratulations!!! I'll be checking back to see that beta double! What time is your appointment for your first beta today? Hopefully as soon as there is someone to draw blood? My RE was a couple of hours away so I had my betas drawn at 6:30 am. I hope you're lucky enough to get in early, too!

Sitting waiting for the draw right now. Results this afternoon sometime. This place is PACKED today...probably because of the lousy weather over the weekend. Feeling nervous! My temp was still up nicely this morning but i'm afraid somehow they are going to call and say "nope, it was negative." I think I won't really believe it until somebody else says it, kwim? Fingers crossed!

Well, I heard back already. :eek: The good news is I'm officially PREGGO!!!!! Yahoo The slightly iffy news is that the HCG # is only 34.8. The nurse said that "over 40 is desirable" but that they aren't concerned about it yet since they don't know when I actually implanted. She said they are much more interested in seeing the level rise somewhere between 60%-100% when I go on Wednesday.

SO, I'm a little nervous but not going crazy yet...I got the + FRER digi on Friday afternoon. Had to go look...what I read says it measures at 18 (some said less or more), so that is not quite doubled in roughly 60+ hours. And 34 is definitely well within the guidelines of 5-426 for 4 weeks. So, definitely not terrible, but of course I'll be happier when I see growing numbers on Wednesday. Will KUP!

ETA: Have I mentioned I'm SOOOOO excited to have even gotten this far?!?! :clappy::blob5:

I can definitely understand your nerves...I hope you can relax just a bit.

As for the test, I hate that it's so light and giving you more cause for concern but with the digi's you have taken, it just has to be the test, you know?

I took an FRER at 8 weeks preggo and expected it to be über dark...nope...about made me cry. It was as light as my 14dpo test. I'll try to upload a pic today for you.

Thanks! That does help! I've been holding onto my last FRER for sometime towards the end of the week, hoping for a nice dark line. I'll make sure I don't get my heart set on that! Smile

Yay Jean! My tests looked exactly like that at 10 and 11 dpiui. They steadily got darker but my digi looked like yours. Smile Hoping and praying for doubling numbers Wednesday!!

Squinters or not, those are definitely lines....congrats!!!!! Yahoo

I know it's hard not to worry, but those lines are there for sure. I had a similar line on my FRER test with DD1...I actually thought it was negative and threw the test away! LOL!

I'm so happy for you!!!

Congrats! Definitely don't keep poas to see if the line gets darker! Mine didn't get progressively darker early in pregnancy and I freaked myself out until I had a couple of betas (although then I had to wait for early u/s, etc.).

Yep! Beta today was up to 134...a perfect double in 48 hours. Smile So, off and running. I go back on Wednesday for more b/w and an u/s. For some reason they seem to think they're going to actually be able to see something at that point. (I think they are stuck in their practice protocols, personally.) If my numbers continue to double as they are, I still will only be up to about 800 by then. From what I've read, it really needs to be 1000-2000 before you see anything. So, unless they know something I don't (ALWAYS possible Biggrin ) or there is a major jump in numbers between now and then, I'm really not going to stress...or let them stress me...if they don't see anything!

Congrats!!! Does seem odd for them to do an u/s at this point, but at least you know not to panic when they say "we don't really see anything." I think my RE did the first u/s at 5w5d. Even then we were told they might not find a hb (they did though). GOOD LUCK!
