Quoting seattlemama3 *NMD*:" We don't have CVS here but we have walgreens and that's how much they are there. I always buy mine at target or walmart. "


Great idea! I went to Target because I had to go anyways... Got two for under $10. I will test tomorrow ....just to make sure it is truly getting darker and than again a couple of days prior to beta.
I really wished they could do my bloodwork earlier because I tend to have low progesterone. I wonder if that could happen again with the suppositories I am taking right now?!? Does anybody know what the progesterone range is that they would like to see at first BW?

Any chance you could go to like a local walk in clinic and have them write up a req for bloodwork to be done at a local lab??? Sorry...i'm completely clueless to healthcare in the states but that's fully do-able here!! And at the same time ask them to draw your progesterone levels.



I don't think they ever took my progesterone levels after i got my BFP i just stayed on the suppositories until i was about 9-10 weeks.



I can't get over your BFP that's such wonderful news and i'm just so excited for you!! I know you're probably going to stress the whole time (if you're anything like me cuz i sure did, and still do) but you just gotta relax and enjoy the ride! It'll be fantastic!! :)

Well, you see I am European and I still don't really understand the American Health Care System either. I am not quiet sure what I can request and what not.
Well, I bought more tests and I will test again tomorrow. Last time around with my chemical the BFPs only got darker very, very slightly. I am hoping for a bigger jump tomorrow.

BTW how did your coworker like the jelly bean announcement. I am thinking about steeling it for my immediate family. ;-)

I'm really excited about the recent BFP in here and Ashleigh's IUI in January! Although I've been upset about this cycle being a failure seeing a new BFP in here helped me get out of the sadness. :D Seeing all the BFPs gives me hope, I also like hearing about all the pregnancy appointment. It's different when the ladies in here get a BFP and share their pregnancy updates, you know? You don't get sad that it's not you, you don't get jealous. You just feel happy!



AF will be here for me tomorrow. I'm cramping, my back legs and hips hurt. At this point I'm at peace with it. It wasn't meant to be.. I can get myself healthy for a pregnancy, I gained some weight that I need to get back off. My goal right now is to get healthy have a GD free pregnancy, have a VBAC and deliver a healthy full term baby. :) DH has really been a great for support, I've cried it out with him and now I'm able to move on. At 10dpo when I realized we were out I felt so heartbroken and depressed but now I can move on.



Now that we have to wait a couple months to start IVF I'm going to start a couple herbs for my PCOS.

I know how you feel. That is how TTC always is for me. It is such a heartbreak when it is a negative, but within a few days the saddness usually makes place for hope and excitment for the new cycle. This is really good and is what keeps us going! I think you have any reason to be full of joy for the future and the new year! IVF is a wonderful thing and chances are are so much higher than with any other kind of fertility treatment. I am sure you will be pregnant in no time. Just make sure that you get a good doctor and most importantly that the lab has a wonderful reputation and success rate. Even if a clinic might be a little bit more expensive if you can save another full IVF cycle it will be well worth it.
I of coursed tested again today and it is a tiny bit darker than yesterday....of course I was hoping for a really dark line, but than again...I guess with 11dpo I am still really early and although HCG is rising it remains at a low level that early on. At least I hope so.....I am just so scared because in July my HPTs only got a tiny bit darker every day and it ended in a chemical.
I think I will skip tomorrow and test again on Monday...and see how the line looks. Please keep your fingers crossed for me and little bean!

So glad you have come out the other side. It's always helpful for me to have a plan too. :)

I got soooo discouraged with testing every day, sometimes twice a day because I felt they weren't getting dark fast enough. This pregnancy was definitely the slowest progressing HPT-wise. So many times I felt there was no way it could be viable. Must have been viable enough!
