FET #2: 6dp5dt


My husband Will found a medical office upstate that will draw my blood Saturday and again on Monday. A fairly reputable place, too. So we will go on vacation and we will get my blood drawn as scheduled. Phew!!

Symptoms continue...

  • high resting heart rate last night while trying to fall asleep (~95bpm again)
  • thirsty
  • bloated
  • left sided pain in abdomen (still doesn't really feel uterine, but I'll take it)
  • mild shortness of breath

As some of you predicted, I couldn't wait until closer to the beta to test again.

I lied to myself that it wouldn't upset me if it were still ambiguous.

But fortunately....


Still very light...but definitely there...

Can you see it, too?

OMG, we are pregnant for the 7th time. Please let this be lucky number seven!

I was SO hoping you would test again!!! Yay!! C'mon lucky number 7!! I'm so excited for you...I can't help it. I know there's a long way to go but I just can't stop smiling for you!! And yay for blood work while you are away!!

Dora said...

YES!!!! You're pregnant! Go little number 7!

Jay said...

I see it!!!!!! Being a squintaholic and having looked at lots of maybe-there-maybe-not-there lines at 10 DPO, I'd say that is a very respectable early positive!

This means you probably implanted at day 8, and that is a good sign, early implantation has better odds than a later one.

I'm doing a happy dance here Mo... Congrats!!!!! Hope this is IT!!

Cassie said...

I can definitely see it! I also am glad you POASed again. I myself am compulsive about it, and didn't know how you were going to be able to control yourself. You are right - they are like crack.
I'm glad you are going to get your blood drawn over the weekend. I am really so very hopeful for you guys. Have a great weekend!!!!

gwinne said...

Yay! Big hurdle down! Here's hoping this one's your take home baby next fall!!!! I am thrilled for you!

Anonymous said...

another lurker who has all crossables crossed for you, hoping the universe takes notice!!

and I had really bad left lower quadrant pain during the 2ww with my second daughter. I chalked it up to round ligament pain, which I had pretty badly during my first pregnancy. it was definitely a symptom, though!

Em said...

That's definitely not an imaginary line...

Happy for you and praying for you!

LisainSK said...

AHHHHHHH!!!! Okay, I can't cross my fingers ANY harder right now or else they will self-amputate themselves right off of my hand?! Gosh Mo...I'm ready for the roller coaster ride...but I like the sounds of lucky number 7!

Elizabeth said...

Oh, yay, yay, yay! I hadn't checked the blogs all day and held my breath as I opened this up. So excited! (And look at all these people who love you!)

Dora said...

FWIW, I just checked my old blog re my first + on my successful FET. I tested at 10dp2dt, so one day later than this, and the line looked just a tiny bit darker than your photo. If you remember, I had some kind of high numbers. This is not going to be a 23 on Saturday. YIPPEE!!!

Brenda said...

All bets on lucky #7!!!

Miss Megan said...

Come on lucky #7!!! Holding my breath for you, praying with everything I have that this is the one (or two or three) for you guys.
Congrats on getting pregnant...that's half the battle!!!

Kahla said...

I can see it and that's without squinting, there is a definitely line! So many prayers and fingers crossed!!!

Maggie said...

I REALLY see it. Got goosebumps.....let's go #7. please please please!!!!

What IF? said...

That's most certainly a line if I've ever seen one! Hooray for a lab near your vacation spot to reveal lucky #7's strong doubling betas. Please, universe, may this be the child(ren) Will and Mo will get to love here on Earth starting in the fall.

I do believe the elevated heartrate is directly related to the increased blood flow of pg. That was my 1st indicator at 10dpo that something was up. My heart was racing while lying down - it actually felt almost like a flutter.

Maggie said...

So excited for you! Let this be the one.

Anonymous said...

Fellow New Yorker, a day ahead of you in Colorado....beta on Friday...wishing us both strong numbers this weekend...

You deserve this miracle....it will happen for you!!!

Lurker here too, this is it sweetie. I've been praying for you and your husband. You're going to carry this one full term. I will continue to pray for a fast and uneventful pregnancy for you.

Fingers SO tightly crossed for you, Mo.
