I was very impatient and took it starting 10 days after trigger. I did a 3dt, so it was one day shy of being a week since transfer. I started out using First Response, but then my DH was making fun of how much I was spending on pee sticks, so I switched to the WalMart brand. Even though I did it, I ...

Woohoo!!! Just got the call...WE'RE PREGNANT!!!!! Whew!!! Glad that parts over! All the nurse would say is that my level is really high and they're trying to dilute it? What the crap? She said she'd call back later with the number. Anyone heard of this? Anyway, I'm heading in to work the rest of the...

Yes, I have my BETA tomorrow! I'm still so nervous, I want it to be here already! I got another BFP this am, my last one until the b/w. I did lots of research yesterday trying to see if it's normal to get a BFP HPT but end up having a chemical. I'm so scared that could happen. However, my body just ...

Well, my husband "acquired" them from the college, he teaches for the paramedic program :oops: But, when I was first looking for smaller, I called the pharmacy that I'd been dealing with and she said they had them. I'm going to call this week and see if I can trade the 22's I have unopened for the 2...

Theresa - You crack me up! Don't worry about ranting on here, that's what we're for and we all have our moments! As for the shots, I promise they are not that bad. My RE only let's his patients do the shots the first two weeks. Then, we're given a preference. I have a strong aversion to sticking mys...

Things are hopping around here! So many ER's and ET's coming up! Good luck everyone! So, today I took another HPT because I started having all these different pains at work. These pains aren't like my AF cramps...I actually don't get symptoms before AF, usually only on the 2nd day she's here. But th...

Rosario - Way to stay positive! So since you had a slow response last time, did they try you on a different med this time? If not, what was the reason? Keep your chin up...you're right, it only takes one little embie to decide it likes you!

Well, I'm officially hooked to HPT's. My gosh, I didn't think I would be this way! I took another one this am and the line is still there, but it looks lighter. I'm concluding I must still have some trigger shot in there and it got lighter because maybe it's almost gone by now. I guess I'll see how ...

So I have to tell you ladies how I've shot myself in the foot concerning HPT's :oops: For some reason I got in my head last night that I wanted to do one this am to see if the HCG is gone yet and then maybe I'd only take one or two next week before my BETA so I could prepare myself. Ha, ha, ha...jok...
