My test was a little darker today, so I'm getting cautiously excited. I have quantitative hcg and progesterone blood draws at 11:30 am. Hopefully will get results back before end of day today!

Faith, when do you test?

BMichaelson, so glad your little one is right where he or she should be! What a relief for you!

Mari: FX for your tests. I don't test until 16th or 17th (11 or 12 dpo). I mean as long as I wait till 10dpo I'll be happy. I've always tested ridiculously early like 6dpo.

Faith, hope you can hold out on the testing! Did you do Clomid this month?

I got my labs back. Progesterone was 29.1 and HCG was 269.4. I'm 15 dpo today. My doctor's nurse was totally celebrating with me on the phone. I go back Monday for a repeat draw. I will also keep taking the progesterone.

Mari: Those numbers are fantastic! :D Are you starting to relax a bit?
I did take Clomid this time. 100mg 3-7. I'm just waiting around wondering if this cycle was a bust too. How soon did you test?

Faith, I am starting to relax a bit. The nurse was super encouraging too. I'm not worried every time I use the bathroom there will he blood now. I think I will still be a bit apprehensive until I know the numbers are going up like they should, but at least I can sleep now!

I'm really hoping the Clomid did the trick for you! I have a friend that just had her second baby and he was a 100mg Clomid baby.

I didn't test until 14 dpo. In fact, I nearly didn't test because I had written this cycle off pretty much before it even started. I really didn't want to see the stark negative, but knew I needed to be sure before I stopped taking the progesterone. Looking back I probably should have realized something was up, but just put everything down to effects of the meds.

Mari: What signs did you have that you ignored? I hope I last that long with testing. I started thinking about what tests show super early and I got hit with this fear of a blank test. I don't want to see those bfns anymore. I'm hoping I feel some thing that lets me know one way or another so I can stand the wait.

Faith: My breasts did not get sore like they usually do, I usually always feel super hungry from about 7 dpo until my period starts, but that didn't happen, lots of cramping starting at 11 dpo - mostly in the evenings, feeling faint and having dizzy spells even when sitting from 12 dpo on, looser stools than usual, and headaches in the afternoon's starting about 11 dpo. Random bouts of nausea and gagging starting at 12 dpo. Feeling super warm all the time when I'm usually cold. That started 11 dpo as well. But, I figured all of it could be explained away by the progesterone so I didn't think I could possibly be pregnant. Especially since we didn't even BD more than twice.

Also, heartburn. I don't get heartburn ever unless I'm pregnant.
