Very hesitant intro from a TTCALer... I may not be here long but I am today! — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

Very hesitant intro from a TTCALer... I may not be here long but I am today!

Okay, well I wasn't going to intro over here yet until at least I got a first beta result, but since @RN536 just popped over here yesterday and she is one of my very favorite people and good friend, I decided to join her :)

It's been a rollercoaster the last few days and given how extremely late this BFP is and my history, I think it's far more likely that I'll be back over on TTCAL shortly vs. this becoming a viable pregnancy.

Here's how it's gone so far (all FRERs):

Thu,10dp5dt: thought I may have seen a really, really faint line but only under certain light and I was really, really unsure. And I thought it might be an early evap or something. Definitely no confidence it was a positive.

Fri,11dp5dt: no line. Went back to look many times and stark white, no line.

Sat, 12dp5dt: like Thu, saw a super, super faint line again but this time it was just barely dark enough that with some adjustments I was able to take a pic and get some votes on whether or not I was seeing things. Seemed I wasn't from the feedback I got.

Today, 13dp5dt: definitely a discernible line!

My husband, I think, has no idea that I've been testing. He has been completely against it because he knew it would make me a little nutty, and he kept telling me "I'm waiting for the blood test."

So next stop is first beta on Monday. For those that don't know me and can't see my siggy, I am 40 yrs old with a four year old little boy already. We have been trying for over two years and have gone through six early losses, I think three were considered chemicals. This was our first cycle of IVF and I am currently 13 days past 5 day transfer of 2 blastocysts (although they were very early blasts, and actually one was in the just before blast stage).

I hope it's okay if I'm intro-ing even though it easily could be a goodbye tomorrow.  Thanks for having me!
