8dp3dt transfer

I have been on edge since being on couch rest gives you nothing better to do with your time than obsess, so yesterday at 7dp3dt I poas.

After some major scrutiny and specific angle/light ratio viewing I declared "a shadow".  My DH declared I was "mental" and "a crazy lady" and that there was no line and to wait till Friday.  At which point I had a little cry - not an ugly one, just a little waah why me, this most likely didn't work, and why was I so crazy....

We went out for brunch with my dad, and I came home and promptly napped for 2 hours. It was blissful, I literally made a cup of tea, sat down and passed out.  I never nap, and since I've been on couch rest it's not like I've been tiring myself out.

This morning I tested again, and brought the strip back to bed to develop.  I started back to work today and wanted 5 more minutes before the drama of work unfurled.

Upon looking at the test - and it's a sensitive one - those 10iu ones from, I could see a line.  Make that 2 lines.  I can see 2 lines.  They are both pink.  It's not a shadow! I don't need to angle it and squint.  DH can see the lines.  I am a bit in shock.

I took a photo of it on my cell phone and it's clear to see 2 lines!!!!!!

Now I have no idea what to do!  I plan to test again tomorrow, and maybe I will buy some FRER tests.  My dad goes back home on Wednesday I don't know whether to tell him or not...

Beta is scheduled for Friday 21st, do I call and have it moved up or wait?

I'm very excited, feeling a little sick to my stomach, and a little befuddled to be honest.


  1. YAY!!! That is so exciting! I hope your beta comes back with a nice strong number!!!

  2. Wooohooo!!!! Looking forward to reading about your beta!! Congrats!!

  3. thats good news!!!

  4. YAY!!!!! OMG, I'm so excited for you!!! Great news. I've been following your journey and praying for a BFP. I would test again tomorrow morning and if (when) you get another BFP, maybe go ahead and place a call in to your nurse that you got a positive HPT. See what they say. They might want you to come in early just to check progesterone levels and make sure everything is going great. Or they may just say to wait until Friday as planned, but it can't hurt to call. Very excited for you and can't wait to hear about your beta results!!

  5. yes, that's wonderful! how exciting! don't know about the beta, call if you like and see what they say =)

  6. Yay!!!! That's wonderful news!!! Congratulations!!! :) As for the beta, I have no idea. The wait from my POAS BFP until the blood test has been killing me ... and it's only two days!!
