OMG - Help, please!

Ok - my hands are shaking as I write this.  BUT - I had a positive digital this morning!  I am 10 DPO...and 11 DPTrigger.  I usually get alot of tests and test until I know that the trigger is out of my system but I didn't this time.  But I had a digital left and thought I would test.

What do you think?  I never thought it was possible....

I hope it's for real :) The only problem with the digital is that I think they are more sensitive. You should get the ones where you can see the lines, then see if they get darker or lighter. GOOOOD LUUUCCCK.

I always thought the digitals were harder to get a positive on?  I think I am going to go get some regular ones and look at the darkness of the lines.  I am kinda freaking out - if you can't tell.  This was going to be our last IUI.

I sure hope so!  I took a FRER hoping the line would be pretty dark - but it wasn't.  It was obviously positive - no squinting.  And yes, mommyin10, I will be testing day and night!

Thanks for all your encouragement!  We are super excited - but cautious.  I am trying to keep busy with things today but I can't wait to go to bed and wake up in the morning to test again.  I will be calling my RE first thing Monday morning to get a beta.  I wasn't going until Thursday - but I don't think I can wait!  I had to tell someone so my mom and sis are saying a prayer for me...while we wait =)

I will keep you updated!

Yes, it defintately sounds like the real thing!! The digital tests are less sensitive, you're right! :) The trigger was always out of my system 10 days past the trigger, and the month we got pregnant, I tested at 9dpo and it was positive! Of course I was cautious b/c I knew it could still be from the shot, so I waited until 13dpo (just b/c I really didn't feel pregnant at all!) and lo and behold, it was a true ++++!!! :) Congrats girlie, you're pregnant!! Good luck with your beta on Monday! We'll be looking for your update, and of course, your + test in the morning too! ;)

the one yesterday (the FRER) wasn't first morning urine.  i took the digital and then ran to the store to get the other one.  so i took the FRER this morning with first morning and it looks slightly darker than the one yesterday.  

i'm still a little cautious.

Well if the Hcg doubles every 48-72 hrs it wouldn't be too much darker!  I say congratulations honey!!! Take it easy, keep testing!

Yay! I agree, it'll probably be darker tomorrow :) My first test was negative, then two days of light positives before it started getting darker. Remember, it's still early :) Keep us posted!

I was stressing EXACTLY like you!  Like you, I had a positive at 10dpo, but it was the FAINTEST of faint lines (barely there) on a FRER.  It got a little darker and then I took a digi the next day I think and it was positive!  Then I got scared cuz after the line showed up for real it didn't seem to get any darker, but my first beta at 13dpo was a 46 and the line was there, but not super dark or anything.  I must've peed on sticks 3x a day after that (FRER's), and waited 4 more days til my next beta.  I was freaking cuz they were positive but didn't seem to be getting any darker.  Finally, the night before my beta it got dark out of nowhere!  I took it as a good sign and my beta was a 306!  

Hang in there!  Even if it doesn't get dark try not to worry.  I thought the exact same thing.  I forgot to say I even had a few tests for a few days before BOTH betas that seemed to get LIGHTER!  I was REALLY freaking then.  It all worked out.  As sensitive as the FRER's are, I don't think they are a perfect measurement of whether it's increasing.

Keep us posted!

I will for sure keep you posted!  We really want to tell our 5 year old, but are holding off until we get our beta tomorrow....when she finds out she will tell the world.  

It seems surreal that I am talking about having  BFP...I never thought this would happen and sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.
