Dont put the light directly behind it...but off to the side so you dont blind yourself. lol I inverted through the same website with each of my tests and couldnt see anything...even though it was positive and I could see it by holding it up to the light.
Tammy - so my only question on that - how do you know that's not an evaporation line? and what is an evaporation line anyway :)

LYD can't wait to hear about the beta. I don't think evap lines usually have color to them... but that is one reason why I don't feel safe testing too early.

riogirl... 9.5 months? You want her to go that much longer? LOL She's already 1.5 months into it! :lol: So only 7.5 months to go! I don't think anyone wants an 11 month pregnancy... haha...

Margi... when are you headed off to Cali?

Tammy... my estradiol was tested last cycle when I had one maturing follicle at 11-12 and two smaller ones lagging behind. I think it was 300-400? I have had it tested at CD3 before and is was right in the normal range. I always have a nice thick uterine lining also, so I think its okay. My progesterone is typically pretty good too... I think it was alittle low this past cycle, but still within normal I suppose. It has ranged anywhere from 8-21 at 7 dpo on the months I know I ovulated. Plus I always have a 12-14 day LP and never spot, so I am pretty sure its good. When I was pregnant I did the suppositories but had to bump it back to one every other day because it made my heart race, so doc said I was probably fine with what level I had naturally and didn't need the supplement. So, yeah.... all of my testing always turns out great.... just old eggs... need to pick through and get a good one! I keep thinking how when I go grocery shopping I open up the carton of eggs and check if any are broken... I imagine if I could do that to me, I'd have half the package broken! LOL

no call yet. by the time i got DS ready and out the door, i didnt get to the office to give blood until 8:40 - so probably wont hear back until 2ish. last week when it was an estrogen/progesterone check i got a call from doctor early - at noon. i was surpised by that. usually he calls at 2 or 3pm.
my cramps are on and off but no blood. how weird!!!! i just dont get this cycle at all. i was always under the impression that uterus cramps where in responce to blood collecting inside and irritating the uterus and causing it to cramp and expel it. that's how cramps were explained to me.
i am home now - my DH works from home these days, and since my boss is gone for the day i decided to join him, so when my doctor calls we are both here. I'll need his support to digest the result.

HopethisworksM -- I'm so sorry! I understand completely how you feel. Chemical pregnancies are so evil. I will keep you in my prayers for a miracle.

Thanks girls. Me and my wife spoke about it already. It sucks but we are going to stay positive and keep trying. Can't always work the first time through (although technically there still may be some chance but it is slim). What exactly does a chemical pregnancy mean? Also, are chances with frozen ET lower than fresh ET? We have some decisions to make as we have 4 on ice...

Hope this works - I am so sorry, a chemical pregnancy is a very early pregnancy that is detected by blood levels, would not show up on US and most women would think is a period. Huge hugs! We have had girls here with FET success, depending on your age, if you want to save the frosties and try a fresh then use frosties for sibblings, or go straight through a FET which is cheaper and easier on the body, good luck!

CJinNC - yeah pregnancy brain :oops: I meant 40 weeks minus current weeks!!! ;) I forgot if you considered taking DHEA or not?

still no news on my beta!! the doctor likes to make these calls himself and sometimes he has a procedure in the afternoon that keeps him away for a couple of hours. i left a message with his nurse just to remind her.
