Mommies In The Making

I Did It

I talked Violet into testing last night at 10dpo/retrieval. It was negative. I laughed off the negative and told Violet that it was too early to test and that we shouldn’t have tested so early. I was not being completely honest with Violet, but I don’t want to worry her. Even though a big part of me knows that it is so early, but there is a strong nagging feeling that the result received last night will be the same in a few days. I have conceded to the negative.

As many before me, when we started this cycle I just did not really think that an IVF cycle would fail us. In my mind, it just had to work because this was our only chance at IVF. Unfortunately, that is not how life works.

  1. 10 dpo is really early to get an accurate hpt. I think it’s really good that you did a test so early, because now you know she does not have any of the trigger shot left in her system. When you do a test again in a few days and see two lines, you’ll know for sure it’s real. I’m sending positive vibes your way.

  2. I hope that it’s just too early–those tests say they aren’t more than 50% accurate that early, right?

  3. Way to early, but as Gayby said, its nice to know you aren’t contending with the HCG anymore. Wait a few more days, it is most decidedly NOT over!

  4. It is funny that you mention that Gayby, because I initially wanted Violet to test to make sure the shot was out of her system, but there was a part of me that knew that I was really hoping for a positive that would be due to pregnancy and not the shot.
    Oh my gosh, TTC makes me act crazy. I am usually a level headed person!

    Urrghhh! To test or not to test– to trust the results or not to….? Everything is still up in the air. I hope the next few days fly by with all the holiday preps…

  6. Agreeing with others- too early!

  7. 10dpo is super early dear. But I can completely understand the desire to test and the need to just know! As Gayby said it’s nice to know the HCG is out and anything that comes now is the real deal! I’ll be thinking of you!

  8. too early, too early! (i know seeing that white space sucks though…so sending a hug)

    fwiw, my partner didn’t get a +hpt until 12dpo (or 7dp5dt) – and even that was SOOOO faint, i had to feign confidence that it was real. and, uh, she’s very pregnant, as you know!

    keeping my fingers crossed for ya’ll.

  9. I’m going to have to go with everyone else on this. Way early but now you know that the HCG is out of her body. I’m hoping that the next HPT (in a few days) gives you 2 pretty pink lines.
