I Cracked

I am in the midst of the 2 week wait after my frozen embryo transfer. I had every intention of not testing early this cycle. Last IVF cycle I waited until beta day to pee on a stick. As we all know, that one came out negative but I was proud of my willpower. But this time I just couldn't help myself. I had sticks over from last time and they were calling to me. So yesterday (which would be 8 days past a 5 day transfer) I did it.

Holy Crap-a-Moley

Wouldn't you know the darn thing turned positive??? Wow! Of course I then started feeling horribly guilty for not testing when the hubby was home. He hates when I test without him. I ponder not telling him and trying to get him to agree to test the next day and acting surprised.

But that only lasted for about 15 minutes before I realized there's no way I could keep this to myself. So I sent the photo to his phone telling him I'd been naughty. He called back instantly because apparently he couldn't see the wording clearly on his non-smart phone. We both said holy crap to each other a bunch of times (or maybe it was holy something else, I can't remember) and I cried just a little bit.

Wow! I'm in total shock.

Now I know it's early days still and a positive pee test doesn't always translate into a positive beta. So we're not telling a soul until after beta on Wednesday. I'm still pretty much in denial until I get those results as well. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't delighted to see the positive test result!

  1. eeeee this is a great start. I've had negatives on these things because they require a higher level of hgc than frer... Fingers crossed lady. :)
