Well, I haven’t gone to the store and bought more HPTS, though I really wanted to today. I figured it would be easier to just know today. DH and his (frustrating) medical advice reminded me that even with a positive result, we’d need to know the quantitative result to really feel good about things. And, a negative would just be a mind-fuck since there’s the ever-present question of “What if it’s not sensitive enough??” I know that FRERs are supposed to pick up at 10 HCG, but what if I’m at 8 today and 14 tomorrow? Well then, today would be negative and tomorrow would be a (very low) positive.
See what I mean about his advice? It makes too much sense. It completely overcomes the “but I could just test today and then we could know… what that test says and then we could wonder if that test was right for the rest of the day” rationale.
I feel exactly the same as I have all week. After the HCG shot and up until about 3 days after the transfer, I felt bloated and my boobs were sore. Right now and for most of the week, I’ve just felt tired, like I need a cup of coffee tired, not extreme fatigue or anything. I’m not cramping. I had some spotting on days 8, 9, and 10 after the transfer, but it was always just the tiniest amount, with just a tinge of pink. Now, nothing. No breast tenderness (even when I poke them). No nausea. I’ve been peeing more, but I think that’s probably from a combo of progesterone + drinking TONS of water.
I guess the solution is to just wait until tomorrow. I’ll let the call go to voicemail so I don’t have to react to the news in public (I have to work tomorrow). Tomorrow is going to be a long day, just a long awful day. OR, it will be a long awful day until it’s the BEST DAY EVER! I hope it’s option 2, I really do. I hope I get to tell one of those my HPT was negative at 9 dp3dt but my beta was positive on 13dp3dt stories, ones that also say I felt absolutely the same before I took the test.
