10 past dpo. A million hpt's. All neg. I had my blood drawn on day 8 and yesterday (day 9) was given the result of no hcb detected but "great progerstrone" level? Did'nt even know what progesterone was. My dr said the levels look great and possiable preg??!! How can that be with no hcb detection??
BaileyBaby, I didn't have a blood test but I did a home preg test and it was negative. My period isn't due til the 13th and I also did an insem on Dec.30th. I'm so used to negative tests that I'm not holding out much hope. :(
somethingnew, OH NO!! You and I both said we would not test.. and yes.. of course I did and have several times. Can't help it. My period should start the 14th .. all I know is mentally I am preg :) You are in my thoughts as we both struggle through this. So we both just have to make it until monday. As you saw on my other post, my blood test came back no hcg detected but 28% progestrone. Which should only be between 5 and 20 right now. My dr did not want to get my hopes up but said the high progestrone was an indication (small one) of pregnancy. I have googled until I can't google anymore *smiles* Hang in There!!!!!!
BaileyBaby, Ok, so I tested again. It is only my second one and I can stop whenever I want! :lol: This test showed the FAINTEST suggestion of a second line. I know they say a line is a line, but this is so faint you could easily miss it. Still, I'm encouraged. I really wish that I had done a progesterone test too so we could compaire numbers. I hope you don't mind me asking you... how old are you and how many tries have you done? I turn thirty next week and this is try number two for me. I had an ectopic pregnancy 6 years ago which I conceived naturally and that is my big worry! Keep me updated, it is much easier to freakout with someone than alone!!!
Congratulations on a line ! I am sorry about your etopic and I don't know much about hpt and etopics. But for what it's worth, I think a line is a line. I too tested a million times days before I was supposed . (human nature I guess). My first positive test had a faint line too. I re-tested a couple of more times (a few days later)and the line got darker. Are you using Clear blue ? I heard they are the best and that's what I used. I am now 26 weeks and I am having another little boy. You are in my thoughts and my fingers are crossed for you. Please keep us updated.
You too Bailey Baby. I can't wait to hear that you both have positives !
BaileyBaby, My line was very faint and you are due for your period a day after me. I hate to give you false hope, but it ain't over til you get your monthly visitor. Good Luck! I will be thinking of you.
somethingnew, 24th or 25th is the day! I got 2 vials again. And have read alot and have little tricks. One is to eat 2 cups of pineapple a day from O and than for the next 10. I will check back in with you on Feb 1st!
BaileyBaby, I know this sounds crazy and I don't know how you feel about hearing this, but I heard that orgasms help. So I had one before and after my insem. Hey, it worked and it's not the worse thing you could do!
somethingnew, Yes! I have heard that but not the part about before insem. I did it both times after but not before. So I will do that, eat 2 cups of pineapple per day for 10 days... anything else? I am SO willing to do anything that might make my chances better *smiles*!!!!
BaileyBaby, I've never heard the pineapple thing but I suppose it can't hurt. The only other thing that I did was to go home and take a nap afterwards. I think that it all just comes down to perfect timing.
Oh, and I did a series of blood tests to check for ectopic and it looks good so far. I'm 5 and a half weeks and I have my first ultrasound Feb 2nd. Good luck with the next try. I will be waiting for the good news!
somethingnew, 5 1/2 weeks!!! WOW!!! That is so great!! So my package was suppose to arrive today between 8 and noon which I paid a little extra for it to arrive before noon. Fed Ex said that they had an air craft problem and are trying to get the package to arrive by tomorrow evening! I am trying not to panic but than I called CCB and they said " If you miss your ovualtion time, resend back asap and we will charge you a 150.00 temp storage fee" ARE THEY KIDDING... I might have to wait another month and THEY are going to charge me a storage fee? does that sound right to you!?! I am trying not to be angry and hope for the best! ( deep breath) I hope you are not worring to much. I truly feel everything will be fine. Hard to explain but in my heart I know you will be fine :) Try not to worry!!
BaileyBaby, I had to respond to your post. This last cycle, I paid CCB on a Friday for a next day delivery (my IUI was on a Monday and they didn't deliver on Sunday)on Saturday. I went in to my clinic in Tacoma on Saturday for my U/S and the vial hadn't arrived yet. Fedex said they attempted to deliver it but no one was there (the driver lied) so they rush delivered it on Monday. I was at the clinic before it was. CCB reduced what I paid for the rush delivery by 1/2 because of the fedex error. It doesn't sound right that they're going to charge you a storage fee if you miss O due to fedex error. I would call and ask to speak to a manager and see if that helps anything.
BaileyBaby, So, did you get to try? I'm sorry that you had to go through all of that. I hope it got straightened out. I know how hard it is to think you are going to get to try and then something happens to make your TWW turn into a 6WW. Once I had to wait because my follicles were too small, then I had to wait 3 cycles for a surgery. The waiting is the worst! Just remember... this will happen!
