Test today


Updated:
I just got the call ……. my beta is 211! What a beautiful number! The only beta I ever received in the 21 months we’ve been trying was 14.

I immediately started crying on the phone. The nurse asked me when the insemination was and if it was donor or husband sperm and I couldn’t talk – at all. She seemed a little confused by my crying and then she realized that I was happy, so tears of joy instead of sadness!

B is out of town tonight. I really wish he was here so I could tell him in person, but there is no way that I can keep it from him until he comes home. I wish I could see his face when I tell him.

I go back Thursday morning to make sure my numbers are doubling. I am so excited and nervous and scared and so many other emotions I can’t even describe. So much for getting any work done this week! Thanks for all of your support with the IUI – it really has meant so much to me to have people to turn to with my questions.

And Congratulations to infertility just sucks. She received a wonderful beta yesterday. Yay!



I have a beta test at 11:30 today. That is the latest appointment to get the results back today. I am very nervous about the test, but otherwise I don’t feel anything – imminent period pains or otherwise. My temps are still up – but today is 14 dpiui, which could still be early for my temperature to drop.

I really hope this is it, but at the same time trying not to get my hopes up. Such is life for an infertile I suppose. I will update (with good news hopefully!) as soon as I hear back.

Wow - so IUIs really do work, eh? I've seen like a half a dozen BFPs from IUIs this month. Which freaks me out thinking that means that there is no way my IUI will work this month, so many others already got it. But then again, I feel that other's BFPs have nothing to do with my own, so there is a chance, right? Ack. Freaking hope.

Anywho - congrats!!!

Congratulautions on a BFP with your FIRST IUI!!! You were one of the very lucky statistics!!! I'm glad that now hopefully you & your husband can enjoy the first trimester before he deploys, rather than you stressing about getting pregnant before he leaves....
& yeah, it does sound like when my husband gets home, yours will be leaveing.
