There's a Second Line! There's a Second Line!

Oh my goodness, I'm freaking out (but in a good way).

I got up this morning.  Peed in a cup.  Did the test.  Went to feed the dog.  Came back upstairs.  And immediately saw a second line!  I could not believe it!!!

I am SOOOO relieved!  I don't feel like this is it yet, but this shows that the IVF worked.  Now it's time to see if my embabies can stick.

Thank you for all of your fabulous support.

I was feeling really negative yesterday at 5dp5dt.  But I also realized that I didn't transfer until 12:30 pm...so it wasn't REALLY 5dt past yet.  I know the chart says HcG isn't in the system until later, but it's hard to believe that when you see lots of 5dp5dt positives.

I'm really excited to be a part of the BFP club now.  And I really hope all of these BFPs stick!

I can't make the pic of the test turn the right direction, so I'm not going to post it yet.  (It doesn't like as impressive when vertical.)

I also want to mention my symptoms.


  • My boobs have been sore since the day after transfer, but the most sore was 2dp5dt, it's been less intense since then (which worried me).
  • I had a "hypoglycemic episode" on Friday at school.  It had been 4 hours since I had eaten and I started shaking very suddenly and it was very scary.  I am not normally hypoglycemic although I do need to eat right when I'm hungry.
  • Cramping was strongest the day after transfer, but I've just kind of "felt" my uterus since then.  Sometimes it's crampy.  But usually just a mild pressure.
  • I've been tired - but I've been tired throughout this entire process so that didn't help much.
  • That's about it.

  12. Oh yay! It seems 2012 is continuing to rain BFP's as this 2nd wave of them is making the rounds!!!

    And for some really positive statistics, when I got my BFP at the end of last year and some 30 odd other infertiles got theirs right along side of me I was SURE that half of us would miscarry. Only 1 miscarriage in the whole group, only 1 miscarriage....2012 has been AMAZING to this community.
