For those of you who don’t know the silly acronyms, I peed on a stick. Two last night and one this morning (so I peed on some sticks (POSS (but that isn’t a real acronym). These are my mail order pee-sticks which I got from eBay.
They are cheap but apparently the ones the NHS uses. Last night I went to several chemists to look for an expensive pregnancy test I.e a clear blue or something digital, but all I could see were (expensive) repackaged versions of the ones I have. So I didn’t end up purchasing a second o-pee-nion (cheesy pun). Anyway here is what I got after 10 mins in the evening on day 10 post-frozen-embryo-transfer:
I looked it up in about a million places and I read about shadow lines (which must be grey)…. Apparently, if there is colour, it is a positive result. It is a crap positive, but the pale line is pink. This is the first time during IVF that I have done a home test, but I did during our IUI with these sticks and got a definite single line.
The advice all said it could be pale because the test isn’t sensitive, or because I am testing before my 2WW is up. Or, that just like last time, implantation began and stopped already It also said test again using morning pee. So I did:
Still ghostly, but still pink. It is a positive sign indeed. However, I am ready to be told on Tuesday that my HSG levels are present but minuscule, that I must stop taking the drugs so my body can reject the botched implantation *sigh*. I absolutely have to be prepared for that.
