Umm.. yeah.. so we got the phone call today.. it’s not absolutely stellar but we have numbers people! Beta at 9DP5DT (14dpo) is 31.
Our favourite nurse rang K and said that she couldn’t say yet if it was good news or not and we have to retest on Friday and see what happens. She said it may be chemical or it may just be that things are a little behind schedule (which is how the egg/embryo development was…just sayin’).
Our response? We are choosing to be excited about this, god knows what will happen on Friday but damnit this is the best result we’ve had.
It’s funny, we had a horrible day yesterday but were mostly feeling really numb about it all. Now I think we’re in a bit of shock lol.
I think this is the one time that we have been 100% completely convinced that it was a failure, normally we still manage to have a little bit of hope still waiting for that phone call but this time.. this time we were convinced. Ironic, huh?
There’s still a way to go but for now we are going out for dinner to celebrate, we are buying another pee test just so we can see a positive (went through all the ones we had left yesterday) and we are going to hope like hell that it’s just a late bloomer and we get an even better phone call Friday afternoon.
**updated** so we broke out the fancy one this time:
We’ve been staring at it for..oh.. about an hour now. The word pregnant, while still a fantastic word, does start to look a little strange after a while..
Had to laugh though, the girl at the pharmacy checkout asked K whether she was hoping for a yes or a no.. lol now there’s a question that could open up a whole can of worms with the wrong person! Having said that, she did get the whole ’12 IUIs, 2 IVFs hell yes I’m hoping for a positive’ story from K.
