tested again


I've been using internet cheapies. Today when I came home from work I used a FRED. It was clearly positive right away - I am stunned. I'm not sure if you can see in the picture. I still can't imagine that a beta of 13 will turn into a healthy pregnancy, but it does look like the numbers are going up.

The blood test tomorrow will tell us more, but even if it doubles I don't think I will truly believe.

This is not how I pictured this.

Wow! That's definitely positive. If you hadn't had the beta then you would have never known you had a low number, just a positive test. I'm hoping for a big number tomorrow. If not you will have a lot of support here!!

Fingers crossed that it's not an ectopic.

I hope this all turns out better than mine did when my beta was 13. My HPT did not give me any indication that things were so low. I tested at home 3 times and got positive results (starting light and getting darker until I had a + on a digital) but my beta that time peaked at 20.

I hope your numbers are doubling and doing well!

Holy Shit! I see it!

Ms. Infertile said...

I hope that this is really it and your betas are good tomorrow. Good thoughts coming your way.

My Reality said...

Maybe it was just a late implanter? I will hope for that for you.

I can see the positive line!! I'm hoping things are looking up for you.

Trace said...

I'm excited for you! (Plus as a fellow DI person it gives me hope.)

Waiting Amy said...

I SEE the line! Totally.

Remember there is a broad range of normal hCG. One chart I just looked at had the lower limit of 19 as late as 5 weeks past LMP (that would be about 3 weeks post ovulation). So it is completely possible that this is an acceptable level.

I'm holding on to hope for a great beta tomorrow!

Michell said...

I can see a line. I had a chemical a couple months ago and had a very very faint line that never got any darker. I hope that you will have greatly rising beta numbers. Good luck.

E said...

Good luck tomorrow. I know you'll still worry, even with a doubling number but I have a feeling it will be even more than doubled! Try to sleep tonight!

CrystalnMelanie said...

Jusy like everyone else I SEE that line! Can'tbwait to hear the results tomorrow.....keep doubling numbers. FX crossed

Somewhat Ordinary said...

I don't know much, but I do know that looks positive! That line looks as dark as any that I ever got. Hopefully, you've just got a late implanter in there. I will be home sick tomorrow because I have bronchitis, but I will try to check in to see what the beta results say. I hope this is it, I hope this is it!!

Go out and get a Clear Blue digital that says pregnant.It doesn't last for long, but is so cool to see.

Oh, jeez, Rachel, I can't believe how crazy this all is. Not how I pictured it either. There's definitely a line there. I can't wait to hear what happens tomorrow. I'll be refreshing madly anytime I'm not in a meeting :)

Best wishes and hugs to you both.

Nearlydawn said...

Wow, just when you think you know what to think, huh? Try not to what-if or think yourself to death until your beta comes back. I know, I know, you will, but try to hold out on the stress. :)

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow!

Natalie said...

Wow. This is crazy. That's a pretty strong line. I hope this is a good sign..... yikes. What a mindtrip!!!

serenity said...

You know, I have to wonder if the timing of the beta just was too early - maybe you ovulated later than what they expected.

I dunno. But I want you to know that all my fingers and toes have been crossed. Hang in there, hon - keep us posted on the beta results.

Brooke said...

Come on BIG number......My fingers are crossed.

singletracey said...

Just thinking about you and praying for a great number! Maybe it was late implantation....

Jen said...

I see two lines!

Here's to a wonderfully high beta and nothing along the ectopic route.

Tina said...

Will be hoping and praying for you that your betas are doubling...and everything turns out good for you!

Samantha said...

I hope you can continue to hold on until tomorrow! The tension must be mounting!

JKH said...

YAY for those 2 lines!!!!! Hoping those numbers are doubling!!!

maryellenandsteve said...

Most definitley positive. Hoping tomorrow brings good news.
