I’m 9dp5trf (9 days past a 5 day transfer)! That in itself is incredible, I’ve never lasted that long without bleeding! AF has always arrived between 5 – 7 days past transfer. But this cycle is different and I’m in utter disbelief.

I’ll let the photo’s do the talking (not the greatest quality as my camera is still in for repairs):





I’ve been having the same results since 5dp5trf but because of the huge mistrust I have in home tests I’ve been retesting every day. I’m totally torn between doing an early beta and waiting till my scheduled test date on the 13th October when I’ll be 14dp5trf. My issue is that because of my high number of chemical pregnancies, I’m afraid to test early and get a low beta, then I’ll spend the next 48 hours frantically worrying whether the pregnancy is viable or not. I’d rather wait it out, as much as the waiting is killing me, and get a decent beta count when I do test at 14dp5trf. If I am, in fact, pregnant and the home tests aren’t wrong.

Right now it feels like I’m living in some kind of surreal dream world…………….

    SZweetie, I am always careful on this, but that IS the ‘faint pink line’ and I think you know what that peans. I am very, very excited for you, very, very hopeful, and will be keeping you in my thoughts!

    Those are some very pretty pictures. I have a very very good feeling about this. It sounds very smart to wait until the 13th, you don’t need to get freaked out by a number that’s not quite as high as you’d like it to be.

    Oh Sharon I definitely am so hopeful for you!!! If you are consistently getting that line then I am cautiously optimistic :-). Why don’t you maybe test at 12dp5dt which would be the same as testing 14dp3dt? I understand your hesitence though – I was also tempted to test early as so many do, but stuck it out to 14dp3dt. Please God please god please god let this be it!

    Wow.. wow, wow, wow! Having never walked in your shoes, I can’t imagine the hell of a chemical pregnancy and subsequent real fear of doubling beta numbers.. but as sassy says – that IS the ‘faint pink line’.. will be sending every ounce of strength, courage and positive vibes I have.. please g-d this is your time xxx

    I knew it!!! I swear I knew this was it! Shoo, I dont know if I could wait it out until the 13th but if it means getting a nice high beta then maybe you should.

    Oh and CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You are pregnant my friend! At long friggin last! Believe those sticks – I know they can lie, but they have never lied for me – every time I saw that faint second line, I was pregnant. Can’t wait to hear the beta! Sending you lots of love.

    I am keeping you in my prayers, rooting hard for you from a far !!Both my pregnancies the pink line was very-very faint and they are now elven and thirteen.

    Oh man, I’m also saying please, please, please! I’ve been very careful to comment too much as we all know your history. My prayer is that this is viable and healthy and stays this way for 40 weeks. Soooo holding thumbs every day and thinking of you everyday. And I’d say, rather wait till test date. (or as close to test day as you can hold out)

    Seems the bleeding was implantation then? So exciting.

    Such a beautiful sight those two lines. Will be holding thumbs and toes for a great beta whenever you decide to go and test. I love the marker pen label to let you know what day it was done….you are SUCH A POAS ADDICT! ;0) xxx

    YAY!!! So happy for you. I’m afraid there is NO WAY I’d be able to wait. 14d5dt is very late for a first beta, I’d go tomorrow if I were you. If you’ve already had positive HPT’s since 5dpt then IT IS going to be a great number. Oh wow another FET success!!!

    Will check in again to see the results of the blood test.

    Looks to be getting darker, which is generally a good sign….now I’ll write out what I’ve been saying since I saw your pictures….”oh please let this be it, please let this be it, pleaseletthisbeit….”. Thoughts and prayers for a super sticky one for you, Sharon.
