I am having a pee stick obsessed morning so I thought I would share the crazy.
Following is a picture (I turned the contrast way up) of the sticks. The top is the day of ovulation (1 dps – days past shot). The bottom three are all from today. The two on either side of the “water” stick were dipped in the same FMU (first morning urine), and are todays, 10dpo, 11dps. The 9dpo test was done yesterday, obviously. And it too, seems to show a very faint line, which it shouldn’t, really…unless it is left over from the hCG shot. Right? I mean, without the shot it would not be positive on day 9, right?
According to Dr. Go.ogle, the Ovi.drel shot should be out of her system by 10dpo. I even looked up it’s half life, and calculated it out (250 units should reduce by half approximately every 36 hours), and that is the estimated beta number I wrote on the left of each test. So there should be zero hCG today, and only 2 units yesterday.
Do you see what I see? Nothing on the water line and some faintly faint lines for today?
What should we be thinking? I am cautiously optimistic…but I really want to know what you think, and I am not looking for positivity here unless it is very real. I want the truth. Have you had any tests look like this and it was still the hCG shot? How long did it take to be gone from your system? Am I reading too much into these tests? Yes, yes, the fact that I am insane is not in question – clearly I am.
