9dp3dt or 10dp3dt - you decide! xp May 26 update - pg ment

This morning (May 26 - noon) with Clearblue Digital:

I think it's for real...this after holding my pee for 4 - 4.5 hrs. I did not sleep well last night. Unfortunately, the one HPT IC expired.....um, 5 yrs ago. Guess I need to buy more HPTs now....stay tuned. At least my nausea started up this am.....bleeeeeeeeeeeeh.

...but this is undeniable, finally a test line that's darker than the control! At least as far as using OPKs as an HPT. I will test with an HPT in the morning but might not be able to post until tonight.

Since 5dp3dt, I've been testing with OPKs...first, to make sure my HCG trigger was gone, and then of course, to find out if it took. My OPKs have been getting progressively darker over time, so it's encouraging.

I really hope this is for real, and it sticks!

You know my line didn't look that dark and my level was 1200.. Definitely positive. Yeah!

Thanks Tiffany...but I thought you were just using HPTs? With OPKs, I had to wait for the test line to be darker than the control line to count. Yesterday's was sooooooooooooo close but no cigar, so today is a relief and a happy day! A real BFP on an HPT will make me happier!

You're right... well the OPKs were never darker than the control for me either (I forgot you could use those)... and lots of other tests showed I was ovulating... so I am not sure what to believe when it comes to that.

I never realized until now that your DD is almost exactly the same age as my DS. I love your ticker.

I never tried that with OPK's. Can't wait to see your HPT next!

Ladies...just posted. The one remaining HPT in the entire house...expired 5 yrs ago. Can't believe it! So I will have to go get me some real UNEXPIRED HPTs and test again. I just hope it sticks!

Thanks ladies! I'm really happy but anxious as well, since I've had losses before at 5 and 6 weeks. I just hope this sticks!!

Thank you, you are all sweethearts. *hugs*

Of course, now I'm a totally addicted POAS addict and at 16dp3dt, the OPKs lines are going positive at the 5 min mark this morning at 6 am, and 3 min mark tonight at 10 pm. It's so dark, it's starting to pull the colour out of the control line, which I am loving. I've never seen this before in my POAS adventures ever. I'm feeling better but still apprehensive.

Thanks ladies!!!

Today is anticlimatic...but here's the official word: pregnant. Of course, it was just a urine test, no betas or anything. I thought I'd hanging out more still at the fertility clinic but they are already transferring me to my GP!! Which is fine, she's an awesome dr. I hope to be referred back to the original OB who referred me to the fertility clinic when the time comes (probably around 13-14 wks along).

I do have a U/S at 7 wks - on June 18. Doesn't appear I'll have any other bloodwork or betas until then.

I am there with you. My 7 week ultrasound is on June 11 and it seems like a forever wait. I hope you get some symptoms so you feel peace of mind. Are they having you take progesterone?

Yes, I'm taking those progesterone suppositories until I'm 10 wks along. My symptoms come and go, mostly sore boobs and low-level nausea. Still have some of the progesterone symptoms too, like the ligament pains. Pants are already tight, have to buy a bella-band.

Congrats now that it's "official" you are pregnant. I still can't believe they only to a urine test. Numbers seem to be more reassuring.

I know! I really wish they would do betas. It seems to me my clinic must be the only clinic in North America who doesn't test for betas!
