Hi all,

 

Background: I did an FET of 2 day 5 cavitating morulas on Dec. 10. My beta is tomorrow morning, so I will have a definite answer but for now, I'm confused and need your help.

 

I have a bunch of internet hpts that I bought a few months ago. I have used them before and only ever got positives with them when I was pregnant last year (m/c at 8wks). Both of my SIL use them as well. All 3 of us also use the same brand opks. Anyway, they have a very low sensitivity of 20mIU/ml. On the webiste it says that it will confirm a negative between 5-10 minutes and not to read the results past 30 minutes.

 

I did one at 5dp5dt and one at 6dp5dt and both were negative. No evaporation lines, just stark white (aside from the control line).

 

Yesterday at 7dp5dt, I did the test and initially it was negative. I didn't wait around too long, maybe 2 minutes and then when about getting ready for work. 10 minutes later I went back and noticed a very very faint line.

I've attached the photo along with the negative of the same image. I aldo did a digital gold FRER, the ones that say YES or NO when I was at work but it wasn't first morning urine and it was very diluted. It came out saying NO after the full 3 minutes. (FYI, I hate digital tests but they didn't have the regular FRER. So I was confused all day yesterday.

Today at 8dp5dt, I did another hpt and there was a line after 3-4 minutes. I made sure to wait around for it. It's still faint but darker than yesterday. I'm concerned that these could be evaporation lines but what are the odds of it happening 2 days in a row when I had already used the same batch of tests and had gotten negatives on earlier days?

Here's this morning's photo.

The reason why I'm not jumping up and down for joy just yet si because I am getting every AF symptom under the sun. I've had mild cramping on and off for the last 5-6 days. Started having light brown spotting yesterday. This is how AF starts for me all the time. Light brown, then dark brown, then red flow.

I know that spotting doesn't necessarily mean anythign bad, but I just can't seem to get over the fear that this could also possibly be a chemical. Ugh, this is so frustrating.

 

Please let me know what you make of this whole thing.

 

Thanks so much!

I say those are lines.  I used many internet cheapies in my day and regular tests and I never got an evaporated line.  I would even dig them out of the trash to check for a line.

 

Congrats!

I used those hpt's for my last FET in November. I had a bad batch though and got very faint results on them and thought they were evaps. Did a digital to ease my mind and it came back fast Pregnant 1-2 weeks. I threw out the rest of the cheapies. I was pregnant but unfortunately ended in another chemical. 

Good luck tomorrow.

They both (especially the second) look like lines to me!  I never got evap lines with the internet cheapies.  I think you're preggers!  Congrats!


Single with secondary infertility, AMA, DOR, RPL.  TTC started with four failed IUI's.

IVF #1: converted to another IUI after 2 of 10 follies went rogue during stims --> BFN

IVF #2: 6 eggs retrieved, 5 fertilized with ICSI --> 3dt of 4 high grade embryos with AH --> BFN

IVF #3: 6 eggs retrieved, 4 fertilized with ICSI --> vitrified at 2PN (had to put TTC on hold)

IVF #4: 11 eggs retrieved, 9 fertilized with ICSI --> 5dt of 3 blasts  --> th_abfp.gif --> lost HB at 8w4d 8388.gif

IVF #5: 7 eggs retrieved, 6 fertilized with ICSI --> 5dt of 2 blasts --> th_abfp.gif --> missed m/c at 7w3d 8388.gif 

IVF #6: cancelled due to poor response --> IUI --> totally unexpected th_abfp.gif --> chemical 8388.gif

Getting off the IVF train and happily moving on to international adoption

Beta is tomorrow morning and I should have the results by lungh time.

 

I called my nurse and she said that it there's a line, then I'm pregnant. She said that pee sticks will most likely give you false negatives but rarely give you false positives.

Her words, " tomorrow we'll find out just how pregnant you are".

 

I'm being very cautiously optimistic. More scared than anything!

 

Thanks for the words of encouragement ladies!

I think your preggers!!!  I had the exact same thing happen to me....I asked the same question, evap line or actually positive?  Well, mine turned out to be positive and im now 22 weeks along!  I read that evap lines never have colour that they are a grey like colour so that is reassuring!  Good luck!

Congratulations SGD!  Those are definitely positive and getting darker!  When I was pregnant with my son, I had cramping and spotting starting at around 9 DPO. I continued to have cramping and spotting on and off for about a week after my positive HPT. I wish you the best of luck with your pregnancy!

I think my feeling is right!!!

Many of the early pregnancy symptoms are exactly the same at AF symptoms and a little spotting at this stage doesn't mean much.

they are lines to me. Start your heparin injections asap!!

When I spoke to the nurse I told her that if this is in fact a pregnancy, I want a prescription for it or they have to be able to call it tomorrow so I can start tomorrow.

I won't go in for second beta until Monday. I don't want to wait another 4 days before starting it.

 

What dosage are you on? How many times a day do you do them?

Lovenox 30 mg once a day, which is minimum dose.

Yes, insist to get on it asap. :)


Diagnosis: Repeated Pregnancy Loss + DOR + Advance maternal Age.

So far no luck with IVF attempts. Hope things take a turn soon.

They are definitely lines (as confirmed by what your nurse said)!! I just wanted to chime in on the spotting - implantation!!! I got pregnant naturally (a fluke after trying for 4 years) and didn't even think anything of it when I found bright red in my underwear a few days before my period was due. I just thought I was early. So....I'd chalk your brown discharge up to that. The cramping is also normal, so try not to worry too much (I know, hard to do after years of trying and losses). Congratulations :)

Ok ladies, here's the update.

I'm pregnant!!!!

 

Beta at 9dp5dt is 48. I'm concerned that it might be too low but my RE mentioned that they like to it between 50-100 so I'm basically there.

Told me not to worry about it and go back Monday to check levels again.

 

I also did another hpt this morning (will be doing them daily until monday for sure!) and the line was darker than yesterday's and it showed up after 2 monutes and not the usual 4 minutes.

 

I'm in shock right now and still very cautiously optimistic.  I'll be able to relax (God willing) on Monday!

 

MyTime, RE will be calling in my prescription today for Lovenox 40mg.

Congratulations! Hopefully it's on the low side because they were morulas vs. Someone who would have had 6 day blasts. All the best and keepis posted.
