early beta numbers and POAS comparisons - Page 3

post #41 of 55
I just took a $tree test... there's a definitely there line though it's not really, really dark. I feel better seeing it though, I'm only a few days past due for AF. It's darker than all of my FRER tests put together. I seem to have a nice progression going though because less than a week ago I had nothing on the $tree test at all. Must.stop.obsessing.

Maybe I should call my doctor and speak to the midwife. My doctor is no longer delivering babies so I'm kinda starting over again.

That's good news, Nic -- post a pic if you feel like so we all can ogle it

Speaking to the midwife might be a good idea -- feels more "real" somehow maybe?

Ok.. I am 15 dpo (if I o'd on V day, which I think I did somewhere in that time frame and I have a 14-16 day luteal phase, was still trying to figure that out when I tested haha)

came back to add... this was also mid-day pee, after I'd gone lord knows how many times and I actually had to force a little out, lol. This is terrible... I need to just embrace that I am and that whatever happens, happens and let it go. It seems with each pregnancy I have I get a little more nervous.

Can I join the POAS party? I got these this am. I am nervous about how light the $store test is. I sent dh out to get a digital just now. I've not had betas drawn with any of my pg except with my m/c in December...I'm thinking now I might.

Wow. Your FRER is super dark! Mine were so faint, all of them. You'll definitely get a positive on a digital. Congratulations!

ETA: My $tree is about the same shade as yours.. maybe a little darker. I wonder if they just don't get real dark?

Okay - emailed m/w to see if she'll do a second draw. I've quit POAS - I saw a progression, so that's enough for me Great tests, Birthdancedoula! Defninitely pregnant!

Dude, Ashley, that FRER is so glaringly positive that you should just throw out the $Tree and ignore it! CONGRATS!!!

LOL! Thanks! Dh got a digi and in like 30 seconds it said pregnant. Ok, this midwifery student is finally convinced she is pregnant!

In part, it was this thread thread that convinced me to seek the extra reassurance of a beta for this pg. I got my results today for 5w0d (22 dpo)... 5135... nice and strong ! I'm going in for a second either Wednesday or Thursday. My POAS (all 8) have gotten progressively darker and speedier. I love the numbers and I'm at war with them. I'm thrilled at the strong reading I got today, but almost lost my mind when my temp dropped back near my coverline yesterday. I think once I get my next beta results, I'll be a bit more at ease. Good for the rest of you with your resounding BFPs! Nice pics!

Step away from the thermometer!! I know, easier said than done...hang in there! Soon we'll all be 8-9 weeks and seeing our little beans on ultrasound!

I've been getting positives on internet strips for 9 days now and they keep getting darker, so you would think I would be convinced by now Last pregnancy I took ONE FRER and called it a day. What self restraint I had back then.

Ha! I love it Calihanna!

OK - got my blood drawn today. I kept apologizing to the m/w and insisting that I wasn't a DIVA. I felt bad asking for a second (she's a very hands-off, nature-loving midwife). I am excited to hear the results tomorrow, though. Now I wonder if I should ask about an 8 wk u/s - which I would normally never do. I had three during December and had to see no hb each time, so one with a hb would be so nice to see.
