My HCG blood test was 231 today at 9dp5dt.
Here are my pictures. I could only get them tiny or huge. I couldn't figure out how to get them in between. The FRER are from the last 3 days. The last cheapie is from this morning and the first one is from Thursday afternoon, after the nurse called to give me my progesterone/estrogen levels, then shocked me when she said the doctor had her sneak in a HCG test and is was measuring at 20. I have no idea why the doctor ran the test so early (5dp5dt), but I am not complaining. They didn't even give me a chance to obsess or decide when I was going to POAS. For some reason, I just felt like I had to keep it to myself.....I didn't tell hubby until that night when he got home and I didn't tell my mom until yesterday. I thought I'd jinx it or something (I'm still worried about that).
I am cautiously optimistic, but of course the worry is still there. I go for more bloodwork on Thursday.
Thank you everyone for all the support through this. It has been such a huge help.
This is wonderful news. I know your worries well. Those are good numbers.
Congrats!!!! Looks like you have some nice looking lines there. Good luck on Thursday! I'm glad there is such positive news after the bad experience you've had this cycle with the bleeding and hospitalization. Went I went through the similar thing my 2nd cycle I really didn't want to think about doing a 3rd cycle at the time because I never wanted to experience that pain again.

We have to wait until Thursday for an update.... (sigh)
Thanks everyone. I am not feeling it's real just yet.
After everything that happened with the retrieval I wasn't sure my body was ready for an embryo, even though the doctor said it wouldn't interfere. I've joked that maybe all those pain killers and sleeping I did for the 5 days before the transfer had me really good and relaxed. In truth, I wasn't thinking much about the transfer, only about wanting to feel better. Crazy how things happen sometimes.
Will keep you updated on the betas.
