Update from the lab in my bathroom

Testing continues.  I have now incorporated a second brand, blue lines, to enhance my interpretation of the original subject, pink lines.

I think this looks so different than last cycle.  I sort of question my grip on reality when I look at those images from last time.  That is how badly I wanted it to work.

The lines are not as dark as I hoped to see, but they are getting darker.

The wait time is different too.  This time the line was there almost immediately on the pink.  The blue one is my thrill seeker test.  Yesterday it showed a line in the opposite direction before giving me the much-loved vertical stripe.  This morning, the Blue Thriller ripped right into the line I was wanting to see.

Long road to go.  Funny how easily people forget.  Even family didn't recall the details that I had 3 decent betas before it all started to fall apart.  And it isn't like they are not paying attention.  Everyone wants a happy ending.

Best wishes to anyone else who needs to concentrate on breathing out there.

  4. Well, those are definite lines of beautiful hcg. And it's in your system. You are right, we want a happy ending, but in the case of pregnancy, we kind of need a happy beginning to get there. Here's to a happy beginning!
    Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. It tickles me that toddlerina has an owl pillow and that you think of me when putting her to bed. Thank you, dear Roccie.

  12. It's looking good to me! It's so tough when you know there is HCG to be found but you don't know yet whether it's at the appropriate level and doubling appropriately and everything. Such a tough wait, but you'll make it. Hang in there!

  13. Just in case you aren't certain that the day 8 line is waaaaaay darker than the day 7 line: my first reaction upon seeing the photo was OH SHIT, as I thought the one on top was the more recent one. There is a happily implanted embryo in there! PREGNANT! PREGNANT!

    My thoughts will be with you tomorrow. I have ZERO DOUBT that you will get a good first number, with lines like that. Tomorrow's gonna be a good day.
