10dpIUI updates (now with confession!)

My chart is beautiful. It's my first official "triphasic" chart ever. (but if you would read the link, you'll see that although promising, it also can mean absolutely dick). I've gotten close to having one before, but my temp moved up to the next level before 8dpo. It's the first time I've had FF say "Implantation Signs: Possibly Triphasic on Day 28".

My poas odyssey shows another light bfp. Remember folks, I got the hcg trigger twice this cycle. The first was 6,666 UIs day before ovulation and the second was 3,334 UIs 5 days past ovulation. Yeah, the last time I got LP support hcg shots and the last one was at 6 days past ovulation showing a bfn on 10dpo is neither here nor there. This cycle I have not been able to pee a negative yet, so nothing means anything. Except that my hpt is totally most likely trigger shot still in my system.

So that's that.

Okay, that's not that.

I remembered I had two digital tests in my sock drawer. Yes, yes, I know what I said about digitals. But I did ~not~ buy them. A girl at work gave them to me once she used the first one out of the 3 pack to determine she was pregnant on her first cycle trying. (bitter much nance?) Well, I figure "hey, since these internet cheapies suck, I'll try one that says it only detects 25-50 UIs of hcg and that will tell me". So I dig one out, pee on it (hrm, not FMU, but I still hadn't had anything to drink and I hadn't peed for almost 2 hours) and wait. Damn, those things take awhile to show up. There's no peeking before the 3 minutes up on these tests! A few minutes later and I see "pregnant". What a neat thing to see.

Then the rational part of my brain wakes back up and says "wait a minute, we have just determined there is, indeed, hcg in your system. And we have no idea if it is or if it isn't from the trigger. So why the hell did you just waste another test? It's not like the digitals only pick up natural hcg and not trigger!" So yes, I'm a confessed moron. But, it WAS, in fact, cool to see "pregnant" on a digital test. I may have to change my mind on those (but only after confirmation so "pregnant" actually means "pregnant".

And, if you've been a reader since last October, you'll remember the trigger of October '07. And I see myself going there again. So I'm going to just accept, right now, that I can't figure this out and I must wait. No more peeing with tell me anything. At least for today. ~wink~

i am going to go ahead and disagree with you on this one. i think it's positive. but what the hell do i know? it's still exciting.

nancy said...

lol. "i am going to go ahead and disagree with you on this one". That made me laugh.

Yeah - this means another day of pure hell in my book!

That is a VERY Pretty Chart, First time Implantation message, First time Tri-phasic Message, and I'll be willing to bet First time HPT+ at 14dpo. (shrug) who knows But I can think so right? You say "most likely trigger" I say "possibly likely".
Sorry about the hell, and our excitement for you probably isn't helping. But Hey, its a great chart, lets have fun with it while it lasts (hopefully 9 months).

Your chart is so pretty--stay up, up, up!!! I'm pulling for ya, girl! I can't even imagine all the stress in your head right now (well, I do remember insanity but it's been awhile). The not knowing will drive you insane until you know for sure. Distraction is the key right now, if you can manage it!

My temp was Tri-phasic for this pregnancy- but I've also had them before during sucky cycles. Hope this one's the real deal!

Amber said...

I have been stalking your chart for weeks now! I was on WebMD about a year ago before I got my BFP. I have been watching/waiting to see your BFP. I hope that this is your time. I can't wait to see it!

Jen said...

I'm just hoping that it stays positive for ya, hon.

bleu said...

Oh Nance, you poor sweet addicted woman.
I think a regular stick in the morning comparing darkness is your only option for even a chance at some new knowledge.
Sending so muc positive energy your way.

jenn said...

I'm so nervous for you!

and might I add slightly jealous that you got to see the 'pregnant'!
I really hope it's it for you... My fingers are getting cramped from keeping them crossed.

Oh- and we just got the internet back at our house yesterday- so I'll get to your tag tonight!

Such pretty pretty pretty things...and yes, HCG still in system, but you gotta have a WHOLE LOTTA HCG for those damned digitals to come up with a yes. My super-fertile friend didn't get one for over a week after her internet cheapie worked.

Denise said...

You've totally got me on edge now! Is it natural HCG or just the trigger? Can't wait to tune in for the next episode of "Pee Stick Confessions." Now sponsored by [insert brand] digital home pregnancy tests.

charmedgirl said...

um, yeah...just for today, you *don't know*. i'll go with that for now..

Brianna said...

Here's to hoping that you'll be welcoming pineapple cores to your house Friday evening for dinner! ;)

Kim said...

I am hoping this is it. I agree with wordgirl and respectfully disagree. :P

First, would it be rude to say I told you so? (About the digital tests...it IS cool!) I am not going to help you - your chart is beautiful. In all my cycles charting, I had 2 that looked close to triphasic...I think it means something. My 2nd didn't have many temps on it, but there were still 3 pretty clear sections. I'm cheering for you!
