Hello everyone! I decided it was time to go back public again. I have missed everyone, and I miss reaching out to people. I could also use the support right now. I have no clue how long this cycle is going to go on, and this is the easiest way to update everyone. Plus, NIAW (National Infertility Awareness Week) is coming up, and I’m all about awareness. I’m very open about my journey, I just needed a break for awhile.
After seeing yesterday’s test and talking with some of my friends, I was thinking about getting a beta done today at the lab in the hospital where I work. There are some concerns that different labs could give slightly different results though, so I’m not sure if that would be best. Even having my beta be a little bit off, could make a big difference.
I have patients in the early morning today and tomorrow, so I can’t really get away from work to go to my RE’s office and have it done. I’ve already had to come in late a few times recently, so I don’t want to push it with my boss. Maybe I’ll just wait for Friday after all, it’s only a couple days.
My test looks lighter today, I think…so I’m pretty sure I already have my answer. I bet by tomorrow they’ll show even more of a drop. I would think it would look pretty evident & pretty light soon, especially since my level was only 21. I have 1 Answer brand test left, so I was thinking of using that – maybe this afternoon. They aren’t as sensitive, so a line on that kind of test would be more telling. Not that pee sticks are a true indicator, but you know what I mean.
I wish my symptoms would go away. They must be from my other hormones, not hcg. My BBs are so sore, I’m extremely tired, and I’ve had crazy, vivid dreams. The night before last, I dreamed of a zombie apocalypse. Last night, I dreamed that I went to get a beta, but they screwed up my order and didn’t have it by the end of the day. I seriously went off on the nurse. I think the dream of not getting beta results was scarier than the zombies LOL. 🙂
The last several days…I used two different lot #’s to make sure the tests weren’t bad or something. Plus I used a blue one for the heck of it.
Here’s yesterday’s and today’s…the bottom 2 were starting to dry a little.
