Leora, you had your ET last Sunday? So that makes you 6dp5dpt right? Something tells me ALOT of women have gotten BFNs at 11 dpo and went on to get BFPs, at 13 or 14dpo. If I was 11 dpo right now YOU would be telling ME its too early. I know its awful feeling "doomed" every cycle and PMA at 11 dpo begins to diminish dramatically, but you I am sure you know of several ladies that have had this story turn out great! Look at Lou and what a rough cycle she had producing only one egg and having to decide between IUI or IVF, then getting BFNs at 11 and 12 dpo, right? Look where she is now.. she just saw the heartbeat!

I can't put myself in your shoes, as I know you have been through alot and our stories are very different, but I do know what it is like to want something so badly that you are willing to give your right leg to make it happen, only to be disappointed when it fails. Not just with trying to get pregnant, but with life in general. I and all the other ladies on here are going to hold out our PMA for you right to the end, even if yours begins to falter. And, if ALL of us are wrong, and this cycle doesn't end up the way that it SHOULD, we will be there to support you with whatever decision you make. You WILL be a mother! Somehow, some way.. it WLL happen!!! [end of pep talk]

Leora - I am sorry you didnt see the 2nd line this morning. But its too early!!! my beta was 20 on day 14.
Carol said it very well!!!! I couldnt say better than that. Please feel better - i hope you feel better. IMHO, sticks are evil - maybe dont poas anymore till 3/3.

Margie - wanted to ask you how your travel with needls and liquids went? i may have to fly to philippines and maybe bring progesterone with me ( assuming i am still pregnant on monday) so wanted to find out how your security procedure went.

LYD, I flew with my injectables and it was fine. I made sure I put it in a carry-on and opened the bag to show them at security check-in. As long as you are open about it, they won't question. Plus the liquid in the meds is such a small amount its well under the limit. If you are concerned, you can also take a note from your RE saying you have a prescription for the meds, but that is up to you. AND I am sure you will still be pregnant monday, and the next 30+ mondays! :)

Good morning!!

Leora and wannabeamum - please don't be discouraged!!! POASing is hard and if you start early you'll see a lot of BFN... so don't dispair!!! We're all rooting for you... but take care of yourselves and stop poasing for some days until closer to beta time... IT'S STILL TOO EARLY... keep up the PMA... I know it's hard... but try to keep thinking positive thoughts for your embies!... (and I agree with the pep talk above...)

LYD - you'll be pg Monday.... stay positive... I had to travel three times during ivf... and airlines always told me to take a letter from my RE... they never asked anything but I always had it with me just in case...

Anton - fifth time is going to be the ONE for us!!! I'm sure...

Kynlee - sorry you're having so many TTC/pg in the family... I can relate... After my failed 2nd ivf my SIL and Sister both anounced they were pg... so it was hard... I will be praying for strength for you... try to keep your chin up and stay positive...


Katie - St. Patrick's Day embies... that's cool!!!

deftonesmo - 3 fertilized is great! hope the other 3 catch up soon!!! Best of luck tomorrow and welcome to the dreaded 2WW!!!

AFM - reading and praying and ready to finish my bed rest... hoping... and praying again...
Wishing PMA and wonderful outcomes for all of us!!!
Married 10+ years
TTC 6+ years
fresh IVF's x5... all bfn...
First FET... WOW. First ever BFP!!!
Miracles happen everyday... we just have to keep the faith and wait for ours...
Praying and hoping everyone's dreams and wishes come true!!!

Leora - i looked at the picture and there is a second faint line far off to the left. especially if you look at the "invert". is that where it is supposed to be located?

LYD - no, that's the seam where the plastic meets the strip.... crap. Now 75% of people say that they can see the line. I wonder if all those people just see the line where the plastic part meets the test strip. UGH.

okay okay okay -I'm the obsessive mayor of crazytown. Today is still 6dp5dt.... but nighttime now (9:30pm) and I decided to take another HPT. Mostly because I dug out the one from this morning from the trash, but it had gotten scratched and ruined. DH is out with friends, so I could take another one..... and guess what! I totally see a line! In the correct place, very pale pink! OMG!

Because I love HPTs pictures, here are mine. You can see it a lot better in person.

OMG!

ETA: here's the link to my favorite HPT picture website too http://canyouseealine.com/view_home_pre ... stID=10739

also - in the minute or so since I took the pics and posted them, the line has gotten better and clearer. OMG! Could this be real? I'm going to totally have to POAS again with FMU tomorrow!

ETA #2: could this be my new ticker? Way to nervous to add it yet, but I still like it! EDD of 11.08.11!

Samantha - you're a day behind me. Even though your transfer was the day before mine, mine was a 5dt. You have to go by your retrieval date. Mine was 2.15 and yours was 2.16. Until just now, I never saw the second line - so you are still too early!

Leorira-Stalking and crashing as the former Mayor of Crazytown from the FEB board. I tested at 1:30 am on day 6 of 5dt (11po) and actually didn't see a line. I went to bed for about 1min and almost started the pity party. Something told me to get up and break open the test like I read someone else did. I held it to the light, and sure enough there it was! Very, very, very faint like yours. I waited a full day and tested again (just to give the hormone some more time to build up). It was still very faint. I went to peeonastick.com (best info ever). They said if you see it and it's faint, it's still a positive. I went to take it again b/f beta and it was actually more faint than the day b/f if you can believe it. So I held my pee for 5 hours without drinking anything, and ate some salty food to make my pee as concentrated as possible. It was kinda biochemical orange by then. :D The line was the darkest I'd seen it. Never got a positive HPT in my life!
I went to your link and I saw a line, and so does everyone else.
I've been stalking you for I while. I'm so happy for you. Keep the faith girl. You're almost home.
