I don't know what to say! BFP (2nd beta update post 22)

I had to label my FRERs because I decided to keep them and keep testing.
Especially after my temp went back up.
And I just gotta say again how sorry I am for my vent the other day. I feel embarrassed by it.

But today is a new day and I have something to show you.

9DPO - BFN right

10DPO - DH and I thought we saw a slight line.
It looks almost grey instead of pink but I didn't want to share it until I knew for sure...
I've got a regular pic and an inverse color pic

Then there's today. 11DPO. DH and I both see the very slight pink line.
I tried so hard to get a good pic of it. I don't know how you ladies get such great pix of these faint lines
Here's the pic of today's FRER (regular and inverse)

I just took another test at 9am CST.
I also increased the contrast to help this one show up. It's really there isn't it?

I'm sorry. The previous post went up twice. My apologies.

I guess I can use this slot to show you the 9am FRER without color contrast or inverse color

I called Dr K. He's going to have me do some blood tests.
Then set up an early U/S to make sure this little nudger is in the right place.
After a Tubal Ligation Reversal there's a higher chance of an ectopic pregnancy.

Hoping and Praying s/he is my uterus!!!

Yes, I see a slight pink line on todays test. To get a good pic, try different angles, lighting, (flash, no flash, etc). It does take some doing Wink Congrats!

I know, y'all called it. Can't wait until I see the darker one tomorrow.

Dr. K sent me to the lab today to draw blood. Doing the HCG test and then again on Wednesday.
After the HCG is confirmed to be doubling, he'll send me in for the early U/S

Keeping my fingers crossed and prayers up. Please oh please let this be real.

I couldn't help myself. I took another test last night at 6pm
It was already darker!

But I tested again early this morning. When I got up in the middle of the night to tinkle. (5AM) The test is just as light as yesterday's FMU (Yesterday at 6:30AM)

I'm not going to let it get to me. My temp is still up. I've got a pic with yesterday's tests at 9am and 6pm and today's at 5am

It's color contrasted so it's easier to see.
DH and mother say I need to wait to test again on the 19th or 20th. (day of missed period and day after)

My first beta came back. 29 at 11 DPO. For so early I think it's good. right?

If I go by what I found online

Guideline to hCG levels during pregnancy:
hCG levels in weeks from LMP (gestational age)* :
3 weeks LMP: 5 - 50 mIU/ml

Lurker - My RE likes to see your beta atleast 50 on 14dpo - so 29 is good for so early.
The really important # is the next one, and that it is rising. It's always reassuring when your dr follows you so early!
Good luck on tomorrow's #'s

Do you get another beta?

I had a lot of trouble with tests with DD2 because they always seemed so faint. I tried the different brands but they never got as dark as they did for the other 2 pregnancies. Because of that I bought the digital ones that estimate how far you are and took them a week apart to see the change. I was a little anxious after my loss and my Doctor prefers not to do betas and had me schedules for an early U/S.

Yeah I don't know why it's so faint. I purposely didn't test this morning because my second beta is today.
I wanted to go in asap at 8am but my midwife insists that I wait until 4 so there will actually be 47 hours between tests.

I think the number will be up. I mean today is the day before my period WOULD HAVE started and my temp went up a little more
Tender breasts, sensitive nipples...so we'll see.

They're following me so closely, so soon because I just had my tubes untied.
The risk of an ectopic pregnancy is up because of possible scar tissue.
So they told me to call as soon as I had a BFP.

I'm going to keep myself busy until testing later today.

If this beta is good then they'll schedule the early u/s to make sure my bean is in the right spot.

Thank you Audrey. That's very encouraging. My midwife says it's a great number too. I'm so excited!!!

I caved and took another test today at 9am. I've just been busy and didn't have time to share it.
I'm so happy. It's much darker and broader than any of the other tests.
Still 3 hours until I go give blood for my next Beta test. But this darker line gives me a lot of hope.

Oh my goodness!!!

I just got my results from my second beta (took it yesterday)

.....
.......

Well...the first beta was 29 so we needed at least 58

And oh my goodness it's 76! Nearly triple. I'm beyond happy.
We've scheduled the early ultrasound for next Thursday at 11am CST. I can't wait!!!!

I'm feeling so good now! Maybe this is all the good news I needed. I have no doubt this baby is in my uterus and happy!!!
Be in my uterus little one and love it there. I'm gonna take good care of you!!!!
