Let’s play ‘Can you see it!’

So I did an HPT on 6dp5dt and here is what I saw…


Then I did an HPT on 7dp5dt (this morning) and this is what I saw…


Tell me if you see it, but I think there is something feint there. Yesterday my boobs started to blow up and ache so that is a good sign. I am sneezing like crazy and have a runny nose and my uterus is heavy. A mild headache but keeping it at bay with lots of water. Yesterday I started running to the loo way more, but that could be because I am drinking more water.

I have a digital HPT that I will do tomorrow morning, just to confirm before I head out for my beta. So fingers crossed I keep getting good news, I hope I have a strong beta……please, please, please.


Facts of Life

I did a Clearblue digital HPT this morning and I am not pregnant. So sad….was very hopeful for this one. Had a little pity party with DH. I will do my blood test tomorrow…but we already know the result.

Now we move on to DE….I am going to be pushy with our FS if they disagree. We need to move on to something that has the best chance of a positive result. DH and I are tired now…four years, 6 IVF’s and I am 18 months away from 40. Time to kick it up a notch for our final run.

On the positive side….I got the job! Just waiting on the contract. An amazing opportunity and I am so grateful for it. So the universe is definitely trying to balance out the negative with the positive…..thank you universe! I also have my graduation for my Masters a week Friday…and now I get to celebrate with a glass of wine!

Life is hard. It just is. But when there are some positives amongst the negatives then it makes it a bit more bearable. I haven’t been able to get this tune out of my head for the last couple of days. I know it shows my age, but for those of you who know this tune I thought I would also inflict it on you.

I bring you the lyrics for the theme of Facts of Life! Sorry ladies….

You take the good, you take the bad,
you take them both and there you have
The Facts of Life, the Facts of Life.
There’s a time you got to go and show
You’re growin’ now you know about
The Facts of Life, the Facts of Life.
When the world never seems
to be livin up to your dreams
And suddenly you’re finding out
the Facts of Life are all about you, you.
It takes a lot to get ’em right
When you’re learning the Facts of Life.


I did two HPT’s this morning, both negative. I have a digital for tomorrow. I am really hoping that it is too early…although with my previous pregnancies I had a faint line on 8dp3dt. Maybe I will be lucky with a late implanter not showing up so soon.

Last clexane and gestone shot this morning. I hate thinking that I am taking these shots for nothing.

I have a job interview today…so maybe that will go well. Something has to.

9dp3dt – Drum roll please

I did my standard HPT’s yesterday, which are the Dis-Chem brand, that is my HPT of choice. I’ve used all the brands over the years, but the Dis-Chem brand have always been the most sensitive and the ones with the clearest feint lines. So after peeing on way too many sticks yesterday I got a lot of feint lines. Yeah! But I didn’t want to post because I always do the ‘holy grail’ of all HPT’s the day before I do my blood test. The Clearblue Digital…so worth the investment. So I just did the Clearblue and it very clearly says ‘Pregnant’.

Yipeeeee! It is a start, we still need to see what our beta is to make sure it is viable. If the beta is good than I will start Intralipids weekly until my 6 week scan. I have never heard of anyone taking Intralipid weekly, but if it is going to keep this baby-babies in, then I am all for it. No more run-aways for me….pretty please.

To those who follow my blog and have been on the long road of multiple IVF’s and many disappointments, and are testing this week as well…a feint line is a good sign. Now go and get a Clearblue digital! Wishing you an amazing beta!
