So I spoke with an IVF nurse today, and she said we will just keep my beta for Friday, as originally planned. That’s fine, since that’s relatively early to begin with.
I ran out and grabbed a few different kinds of pregnancy tests after work, because now I officially want to pee on everything. I peed on an EPT, and it’s BARELY positive, maybe. I mean you have to squint to see the line. My husband’s not convinced there’s even a line there at all. Freaking out, I peed on another FRER, and it was positive right away again.
Has anyone ever noticed that some test brands don’t work quite as well as others? I am currently suuuper worried that maybe the FRER are just really sensitive, and are picking up on some straggling HCG from my trigger shot. Either that or the EPT’s are a lot less sensitive, and/or suck. Wtf.
So here’s what I’ve been staring at. The top FRER is from 7am today. The stupid EPT is from about 4pm. And the bottom FRER is from 4pm also.
Notice how the FRERs are clearly positive, and the EPT isn’t. If you SQUINTTTT, and look at it super hard, you can barely see a shadow of a line, particularly in the bottom half of the circle. I wish I hadn’t even bought that brand because now I’m much more worried than I was before.
