Negative Coming My Way

I did an HPT yesterday and got all excited at the results! A big bright positive, I was so excited, I rushed out to show W! He was cautiously optimistic after viewing the test, I guess the part that convinced us both was how rapidly the result came up. So today’s W’s birthday and I thought I’d surprise him with another positive HPT. Ha! Murphy and his f*cked up laws had a good laugh in my face. I decided to do 2x HPT’s, different brands, one the same as yesterday and wouldn’t you just know it, it showed + again this morning. And then a Midstream brand which was a BFN! Of course this pushed paranoia into over drive, I’ve since then used another midstream HPT and again, the result is the same as this morning – BFN! 🙁

In the interim the Crinone has started to play havoc and all the additional hormones have left me feeling like cr*p. I guess the confusing HPT results are also not helping.

This morning I also figured out why I haven’t starting spotting as yet. With my previous IVF’s the IVF cycle ran longer than my natural cycle, so the early bleeding post ET always came at exactly on CD28/29 of my natural cycle. Today, I’m only on CD24, that’s why we haven’t noticed in ominous spotting as yet, but it will come.

I have this sinking feeling on the inside that this is over. Please please do not try and bull sh*t me into believing otherwise. With every pregnancy I’ve had in the past I’ve received consistently + HPT’s regardless of the brand by this stage of the game. I had a 5 day transfer, so the embryo’s should have hatched and attached before the weekend so in all likelihood I need to accept that they are dead.

One thing is for sure, this never gets easier to cope with. The worst part, its my wonderful husbands birthday today, he deserved a nice surprise but it doesn’t look like its meant to be. I can see how disappointed he is, but he’s trying hard to hold onto hope and believe that its still too early, I guess the sad part for me is that I know too much and I know its over.

    Hi there

    Thinking of you. I know I always just knew when I was getting a BFN so I’m not going to try and tell you to be positive. My suggestion, just go for a beta tomorrow morning and stop all the unknowns. You are now more than 10 days after trigger so at least you’ll know for sure. What about your temperature? That was pretty reliable with me.

    Oh, that really, really, really sucks. It’s still not impossible, you know, but I have to admit that I’d have a hard time believing it too. The blood test will tell for sure. I can’t think of anything more sucky than a BFN after all that you go through to even get to that point.

    I know what you mean, the “keep positive” comments just are not helpful when the outcome is certain. Instead I weep with you. I’m so sorry. Know that you’re thought of.

    No long speech or anything like that from me about how you should or shouldn’t be feeling as I know when I lost all my babies that I felt no one truely knew what pain and frustration I was going through….it was MY pain,loss and frustration and only you really know how you are feeling….Just wanted you to know that you are constantly in my thoughts and I really and truely hope that this has a positive result for W and yourself.

    Listen here, step away from the effing HPT’s, they are more than evil at this stage of the game. If you really want to know rather go for a beta but pls dont torture yourself with POAS.

    I am so sorry… I know you don’t want any positivity, so I will be quietly hopeful. I totally understand you are feeling awful and defeated and for that, I am so sorry.

    Bummer. You know your body better than anyone, so if you think this is it, bummer. (But I’d love to hear that you’re wrong.) Thinking of you and wishing you positive results soon or later this year.

    I know what you mean – we know our bodies and our instincts are usually right. I’m sorry that it was such devastating news on W’s birthday, the poor guy. I hope you guys held each other and still had a quietly good time together.
