ivf #3 8dp5dt...



When I woke up this morning I took the $ Tree test first. I cannot begin to explain how frustrating it was, it was sooo faint and for a minute I thought it would be blank. Then I got out the FRER regular and the FRER Gold Digital and now I feel MUCH better. I also think I drank too much water before bed because my urine seemed so diluted.

I will save the EPT digital for tomorrow morning before my beta.

I will also admit I slept with my test from yesterday, under my pillow hand grasping it on and off all night. I know, I am a dork.

I have been so moved by all the support and amazing responses. Yesterday I could not really even talk. I paged my doc after the FRER yesterday and he was so happy. He went over sensitivity numbers with me like any of you would and we talked about how this is a great thing and the first of many hurdles for me. I am choosing to be happy and try and just enjoy this. This is the 5th time I have been pregnant. I have some symptoms that make me feel really good and I am hopeful (although hope is really a lil pain in the ass sometimes) about this pregnancy. I doubt I will be throwing up a ticker but I will be happy and allow a grin and feel very very grateful. I am still like three weeks away from an u/s so I just have to get through the next few beta's and hope for good strong numbers that double nice and fast.

And lastly I will leave you with Bliss and telling him last night. I took this right after he found out.


30 om's.:

Yay, for more tests with BFPS! It must have been wonderful to see that yes. I don't I have seen the FRER digital, it must be new. I almost cried watching Bliss find out you are pregnant. He is so sweet!

AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH! I've been at the folk festival all weekend and look what I missed! I kind of knew this was coming, but I never say that before cause of course I know lots of things and sometimes they things I know turn out to be wrong. But I KNEW IT!!! and HURRAH!!!

I'm thrilled for you and Bliss. And of course the wee being. I'm just so filled with joy for you, Bleu, I want to run outside in the rain right now and jump up and down. Yay!

Inlocoparentis said...

Congrats! That video is adorable.

Sara said...

Bliss is adorable! ...and yes! Yes!! YES!!! grow baby grow!!!!

dakota said...

Love the video--Bliss is well, bliss.

No one knows more than I how difficult it is to stay in the moment. It isn't only with TTC of course but in the TTC world emotion coiled with desire is so deep rooted it can make the strongest of us doubt our strength and love and we rob ourselves of complete joy when we try to amour ourselves against the possibility of the fearful unknown. No one knows more than you how important it is to have our joy--you couldn't have named your son Bliss if you didn't.

So that being said Happyhappyjoyjoyjoy to you Bleu. (You can't see the kittens and me dancing for you but we are!)
Rooting for all of you, all the way.

I didn't mean to make this a novella, but I hear your understandable doubts between the lines of your happiness. xoD

R said...

oh Bleu!! CONGRATS my friend! I am so happy for you! Here I am sending lots of sticky glue and a wonderful 9 months ahead!! CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mrs. Bluemont said...

YEA!! I'm a so fucking elated for you darling. Hope to hear a stellar beta and all about your thrilling 9 months. Lots of love, oxoxo.

It's funny about the digitals. I used to think the digitals were the least sensitive so I saved my ept digital too. But I went through ALL my cheapies and FRERs and everything on my FET cycle and BFNs of them all. Then, the morning of my beta, I was out so I used the digital. Remember my beta was a 15? That freaking digital said PREGNANT. Crazy. The other tests weren't even picking it up yet. Anywho - my whole point is - digitals RULE! But those FRER lines are more telling than anything! YAY!

Damn, my batch of follistim is the bomb.

Sonya said...

OMG that kid is SOOOOOO darn cute. I am sending positive energy your way!!!!!

halfadozen said...

That movie made me tear up, it's so sweet...

What a great way to start a monday!

Kymberli said...

Can never have too much Bliss!

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who sleeps with her positive pregnancy tests under her pillow!
