Details: This was my third medicated IUI (third time I'd ever ovulated). It was our first cycle with injects. We did Follistim, Ovidrel, an IUI, and endometrin. I only had one follicle and I was not feeling hopeful at all.
So, wow. My beta was scheduled for yesterday and I was irritated at the inconvenience of having to go in even though I knew I wasn't pregnant because my test was negative on Wednesday. Imagine my surprise when my nurse called me in the afternoon and told me the results were positive! I was completely shocked. As you might remember, I had already been mentally preparing to take a couple of months off before starting IVF. Of course, after I got off the phone I immediately peed on a FRER because I assumed the nurse was just fucking with me. Needless to say that second line popped up immediately!
Funny story though... I had my husband read the home test on Wednesday because I was too nervous to look. He told me it was negative, gave me a hug, and went off to work. After we got the positive results on Friday, I was giving him shit about not being able to read pregnancy tests. He was like, "no! It was negative! It looked nothing like this!" He felt compelled to dig it out of the bottom of the garbage can (yuck) and what do you know, there was a pretty obvious line on that one too. Husband fail!
My beta was 64 at 14dpiui, which might be a little low, so I'm feeling pretty cautious still. I'd appreciate any crossed fingers and happy though. My next beta is on Wednesday.
There are some additional details and pictures posted on TTGP, if you're interested (I'm trying to be sensitive so I omitted them here).
Thank you guys so much for welcoming me to this board. I know in more than one way I don't "fit" in the traditional sense, but this board has been my rock for the past 5-6 months. I love and appreciate you. I hope you all can get to the end of your IF journey soon too.
