16dpo – Reassurance

November 24, 2006 at 5:58 pm Leave a comment

We woke up at an unGodly hour to go shopping this morning. I also had a bad dream after that, I dreamt that I was lying on the floor of the store and bleeding and having a miscarriage. I woke up perturbed and wanted to see my positive line again.

I had not taken a test since the morning of my beta and I remember how the last time, my lines became fainter and fainter before m/c.

So this morning I took a test for reassurance that everything’s still “there” and was thrilled to see that a huge line started forming, before even the control line. This was a huge true BFP (as in big and fat). It was definitely a lot thicker than the line the morning of my beta, so I am hoping that means a good thing and that my numbers are rising. And I didn’t even have to wait 2 minutes for it to form – it was there within seconds.

I can’t believe that here it is – that moment of me peeing on sticks and getting valid bonified positives. I can’t recall the amount of times I read about other women experiencing this. It was always someone else. I became used to the way of things. I would never get that evasive BFP. But here it was. I dont think my line ever even got this thick the last time around. But still, I’m not counting on line thickness of course. My beta on Monday can still throw me a curve-ball and I will just wait for that. This will only hold me over.

 In the mean time, I have to report that the 2ww symptoms for me this time around were NOTHING like the last time. I guess this proves once again just how unique every pregnancy is. I don’t even know why people look out for symptoms. Its literally like “anything goes”, and only the final test or beta tells you the truth.

I’ve certainly felt cramping, pulling, pressure and all kinds of sensations quite a bit. Who knows how much of that is pregnancy related, how much is progesterone related and how much is IVF. I’m also temping (out of habit) but only losely monitoring that since progesterone affects that too. Temps keep staying high.

I want Monday to be here so that I can know what my follow-up beta is already, and yet I also want to have a long and nice relaxing weekend. One thing is for sure – having that beta on Monday will certainly offset any typical Monday blues. There’s a reason to look forward to the weekend being over. And I hope the news will be good.
