So I Had This Idea....

2 week wait = FAIL.

So I swore up and down that under no circumstances was I to take any at home pregnancy tests before getting my real, doctor sanctioned,  test on Tuesday.

Um, yeah... so that lasted exactly 8 days.

See you are not supposed to take HPT (home pregnancy tests) because you can get a false positive from the "trigger" shot that is given the day before your retrieval. Well, last time I didn't listen (because I am a rebel) and I got all negatives. This time around I thought I could trick the system and take the test early enough that I would get a negative (confirming that the trigger was out of my system) so then if I took a test over the weekend and it came back positive, then I would know it was a true positive.

Evil genius right?

Wrong!

The damn thing popped up with a positive, which normally would be AWESOME, except we have no way of knowing if it is from the trigger or from a baby. Crap. I guess now I'll just have to be a good girl and wait until Tuesday. Humph.

Even though it means absolutely nothing, can I tell you how amazing it was to look at an actual positive pregnancy test after 26 months of negatives? I think that if this round doesn't work out for us I am going to have my pregnant bestie pee on a stick each month for me just so I can see those magical words again.

Oh, it's going to be a long 4 days...

You're 8 days past transfer? It's probably the real thing. I got a positive three years ago around the same time. The result of that round of IVF is taking his nap upstairs right now. Fingers crossed.

Depends on the dosage of your trigger show. What was it?

I took 10,000... and am on day 8 post transfer. I just read that it can stay into your system for 14 days, tomorrow at 10pm will be exactly 14.... guess I just have to wait until sun/mon/ tues.

This is when a little more patience could definitely come in handy...

They should make test sticks that light up, flash or play music when positive. For those of us who endured negative test after negative test, we deserve a little something extra special when its positive!!
