Barely a line- pregnant?

Postby Fingerscrossed1129 » Mon Jun 13, 2016 10:18 am

Hi! The two weeks post IUI are proving to be harder than I thought! Here's my backstory, let me know what you think and any help appreciated :-)

This is my first cycle of IUI. I'm an otherwise completely healthy 28 year old, never been pregnant (or tried). This is our first month of ever not even using protection and last month, our dr confirmed I ovulated. We are using IUI because my husband has cancer. We froze 16 vials prior to him starting chemo 16 months ago. Unfortunately the drug he's on now is known to cause birth defects so even if he is still fertile (haven't had him tested) we'd obviously have to do IUI.

Our Dr knows our situation and urgency to get pregnant. This cycle was with follistim, menopur, and a novarel trigger on 5/31 at 10 pm. I had 5 follicles over 18mm and we did IUI on 6/1 and 6/2. The Dr could see that 2 eggs were ready on 6/1, then 6/2 she saw that 2 had collapsed (released) and the other 3 looked ready.

Last Thursday (7/8 dpiui) I felt horribly nauseous which is very unusual for me. It was the only symptom I had that I felt like wasn't a placebo effect. I took a digital test and it said pregnant but it was silly to do so because I took a trigger shot.

Saturday (11dpiui) I took a first response I ordered on Amazon and got the faintest line ever. Took another one this morning and it was as faint if not fainter so I'm getting worried that I'm not pregnant and it's actually just my trigger leaving my body. I've attached a picture of the 2 I took plus one I dipped in just water to see the difference. What do you guys think!?

I can see the faint line on saturday's and monday's tests... it does look a bit fainter on monday's test. But it sounds like you had multiple eggs release at different times so even if these tests are just the faintest traces of the trigger leaving your system, I think you still have a great chance of getting a BFP this cycle. Hang in there. Try to resist the urge to test again until Wednesday (I know, so much easier said than done). HCG should double (or more) every 48 hours so if you can hold on, I think a test in a couple days would be much more reliable. Sending you tons of good wishes and baby dust!

Updated: took 2 tests last night and one this morning (13/14dpiui) and all came back bright white negative. It appears that tiny trace was the lingering trigger shot and next time I really will listen to my Dr and not test until 14 dpiui. The roller coaster is too much otherwise. Thanks for the support:-)

Oh no, sorry to hear about this. I'm disappointed for you :(
Good luck with your next cycle, hope you'll be trying again soon.
