FET #3: 7dp6dt

I planned on doing a "part two" post last night, but never got around to it. Our air conditioning is still down, and when it's 83 degrees inside, I don't want to do anything!

Also, because it's so hot in the house, it's incredibly difficult to get a long hold with no fluids. I peed in a cup three different times last night before I finally dipped a stick. The pee I ended up using was still a light yellow, but it was too late to try for another hold.

Unfortunately, the stick didn't look too good. Sure, it was a nice line. But it was way lighter than the earlier sticks. So I went to bed feeling a bit down.

This morning, both my FMU and SMU were darker than the previous night's stick, but not darker than yesterday's darkest test.

Yes, I realize I sound crazy.

I don't want to worry. I really don't. But it's impossibly hard not to. I want to be naive and blindingly optimistic. I really do. But I can't.


Symptom check:
A headache started knocking on my brain last night before bed. I hoped overnight it would go away, but that nagging "pre-headache" feeling was still there when I woke up.

I also had a lot of queasiness today. To the point that the queasiness coupled with the headache has made me feel super hungover all day. And I believe this to be a promising sign.

Pee stick check:
I pretty much said all I wanted to about pee sticks up above, so I'll just post the stick:


I was really hoping it would be darker. But, I can see that the test from this morning does not have as much dye as the one from the day before. It was from a new box, and I'm hoping that has something to do with it. It is still a really pretty stick, and so much darker than my first pregnancy's 7dp6dt stick.

And since Kelly asked, I will post my sticks from my first FET, the one that kind of worked:
FET #1 back in November 2011
And finally, I did pee again tonight. Again with diluted pee. And it's MUCH darker than last night's diluted-pee stick. That's good, right? I'm crazy and worrying for nothing, right??

Sigh.

  7. Hoping tomorrow's beta is awesome. Try not to worry too much about the tests, so much can vary them and they really don't indicate quantity anyway. But I totally understand the obsession and NEED to test. I always did it too. Hang in there. I am still keeping you in my thoughts and hoping that this is it for you.

  8. Can't wait for your beta! I would tell you to calm down, but I know it won't work. So be as crazy as you want! You've earned it!

  9. Yes, you are crazy, but we all 100% understand and have been there crazy right along with you. :) I know you know that every test and every urine sample is different so you can't really compare them to the degree that you are. The lines are still dark and that's all that matters. Your beta is going to kick ass!!

    I'm so excited for you!!!

  11. Fingers crossed for a very good beta tomorrow! In the meantime, hide the HPTs!! Today you are pregnant and I agree with MissC: breathe and be hopeful!

  13. Mine faded in and out those first few days, and those were on the much more sensitive wondfo tests. Now, 30 weeks with twins and healthy. Seriously, stop peeing on sticks! You aren't doing yourself any favors! Those are consistent strong lines. You're going to have a strong beta in the morning.

    Lines still look great! You got so dark so fast, it isn't too surprising they are leveling out all ready. It seems as though it has taken everyone longer to beat the control line recently and you got to just about even yesterday. But I am sure it is impossible not to stress!! I bet your beta is going to be great today!!

  16. Why do we do this to ourselves? I'm a chronic pee-er, too, and was certain life was over when yesterday's stick was a little lighter than the others. $22 and two boxes of tests later, I realized that all tests are a little different. We just can't seem to catch a break, can we?! Fingers crossed for your beta to be super strong!

  17. I think your sticks from this time around are darker then they were last time!! My fingers...toes....eyes....everything is crossed that in a little more then 11 hours, you will have a super high beta number and that you an finally breath (just for a little). I am really rooting for you and pray this one works out for you :)

  18. Fine, I'll say it: yes, you are crazy and worrying for nothing!

    But honestly, of course you have reason to worry - everyone does. Just don't do it today, okay? Because you have some pretty awesome evidence that you're going to get a GREAT beta number! I'm keeping my fingers crossed and can't wait to read your next update!

  19. OMG!!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!!! Stick baby bean! Stick!!!! God bless you and this little one...may all your dreams come true!

  20. No shame in your worries but trust me these are looking fabulous! Can't wait to see that # today!

  21. Pee sticks are not diagnostic tools. You will drive yourself crazy. They just put in enough chemicals to react with HCG, every batch is different. It is just meant to tell you yes or no. Two lines means you ARE PREGNANT. Now, step away from the pee sticks and save your sanity. :)

  22. Your pee sticks still look great! Don't worry about the darkness from day to day because so much of it has to do with the dye in the stick and the dilution of your pee. The first time I got pregnant I went crazy peeing on sticks too and some were lighter than others from day to day but it didn't reflect in my betas (which were rising appropriately). Good luck tomorrow my fingers are crossed for you!

  23. I think your sticks look great!!!! Cant wait to hear your beta!!! Praying praying praying for a sticky little miracle!!!

  24. That new test looks darker to me. Or at least the same as the one before.
    I know once my tests reached a certain point, it didn't look like they were progressing as much as before.
    Your tests still look AMAZING!!!

  25. Can't wait to hear! To a normal person you sound crazy, but to IFers, you don't at all!!!!
