That looks darker than yesterday's FRER! Yay!! I can see them both from a distance, no worries. The blue one is super obvious too. Definitely a dud test from this morning.

Twein, how far along are you when you have your ultrasound? I know it's nerve wracking but I'm sure it'll go really great, your betas have been awesome.

Funny, I thought dollar stores were about as common as Starbucks are everywhere here!! I guess not in LA! Are you peeing again tomorrow?! Once you start, it's hard to stop!

So ultrasound is Wed Twein? That's not tooooo bad I suppose although I wish it could be Monday, then you just have the weekend to get through. My clinic usually won't do them until 6w2d because people are much more likely to hear a heartbeat and any earlier often freaks people out as there isn't a lot to see, so they tell me. So I'm sure you'll get a nice strong heartbeat at 6w6d :D

Is that a Clearblue test Zerb? If so then that's really good. Clearblue tests are only sensitive to 25iu and blue dye tests are generally less visible so for it to show up there is good. The FRER is clear too so think you are fine, it's just very early days.

If you want to keep comparing you should find some tests that are pink dye and sensitive to 10iu hCG and stick to the same ones. Keep away from Clearblue for now as they are not as sensitive and will worry you, especially the digital ones.

Try not to panick and just go with the flow for now. There is nothing you can do to control any of this so try and enjoy the positive tests and relax. I won't be about much but am here if you need me and you can PM me any time you want. Take care x

Hmmm I was going to say June 2015 IVF, but then I thought why not have some fun with it...

Not that I have any ideas other than a jumble of words pertaining to strong woman folk :)

So Zerb when is your beta scheduled for? That expensive FRER was a piece of headache.
I'll join the Facebook group. I can't think of a name right now.

Simone do you have to do any kind of preping for your Sx?

Nah no prep. But hubby and I started a diet (more like healthy eating to be fair, nothing crazy) this week and I hope to start up at the gym soon. (I've requested a change to my working hours to allow me time to go)

So, besides just trying to get in shape a little, no other prep!
