Last night was rough. I was exhausted and decided to make it a very early night. No, I don't think this is hormone related, I just had a long day. The ute' cramping continued through the night and at 2am, I started to get vivid dreams about POASing. I had this feeling that it would be ok. I mean doesn't everyone get a positive at 2am somewhere between 3dp5dt and 4dp5dt? Um NO. Neither did I. I wasn't that upset. I realize it was just too damn early, but there was something telling me I needed to do it. I am not going to try again today, but tomorrow it is on. Last time, I got a faint line in the evening of 5dp5dt, should I wait until after work or do first morning pee? I need to know, this waiting is killing me.

In other news, my SIL and new BIL have returned from their honeymoon. I am expecting a pregnancy announcement. Just for once, can something go my way?



  1. Hey R...just like my "hopeful/imaginary" beta HCG nerves are starting to double every 24 hours....I wish it was a work day today!!

    Hanging by a thread also...

    OH and I can't give any advice about POAS - every pg is different so no betas will be the same and detected the same. But little comfort...I know.

  2. I'm not a POAS kind of girl, so can't give you advice there.

    Hang in there!

  3. I hate this waiting for you! Try to keep yourself busy, if at all possible (I know, I know...sounds crazy).

  4. This is crazy-making time, for sure! It's definitely too early yet, so don't feel bad about your 2 am POAS. I don't really know about when to do it on Day 6. I would probably do FMU, but that's also because I have no patience, plus I have a hard time holding it that long to pee in the evening.
    Good luck!!!

  5. I still think it is early but you need first morning pee.

    My RE told me day 9 then said I could try day 8.


  6. Gosh, this is SO damn hard. I did something different for each of my 11 IVFs. I guess you just have to go with your gut and how you feel that specific day. But if you were doing it tomorrow, I guess I'd go with FMU. And, like the PP said, each pregnancy (just like each IVF cycle) is different, so don't compare anything to anything!!!! xo

  7. Thinking of you... I didn't POAS until after the beta last time. I am just too much of a chicken. With FMU, you have to head into work after POAS. At night, you have time to absorb before facing anyone... just my .02!

  8. Testing too early may make you more stressed because you see the negative and then think negative thoughts. Thinking positive thoughts for you!


  9. It's early still...I don't think I've ever heard of anyone getting positive this early. I would wait until the end of the day to POAS b/c I would want to have some private time to digest with my DH first. Good luck!
