Set stick to stun!

Before going for the beta blood draw this morning I used a HPT. It was positive. I'm stunned.
The second line is faint, but undisputably there.

Can you believe I had to force myself to use it? Just before, I had been dreaming about POAS.
Only when I opened the pack, it contained something that looked more like a big pen. A deluxe HPT for IVF patients, you had to set days since retrieval and days you had stimmed before using it (to make it more accurate?). There was information scribbled all over it, but I couldn't find the details on how long to dip it into the urine. To make matters worse, the house was overrun with people (I think a party was going on) and people kept coming into the bathroom. Hello, some privacy please! And the other bathroom (which we don't have) was trashed, garbage and litter from the party everywhere. Odd dream.

Back in reality, my mind is racing, and I'm letting it. I realize that this can still go both ways, all I can do is hope for the best.

Thanks for all the well wishes of the last days, weeks and months. I'm going to hold onto them, because I still need them.

Wonderful news Lut. I understand your caution but I am so hopeful that this one is a keeper (and you're young and you already have a positive HPT so things are looking good).

Hoping for continued good news with a great beta, Lut!

Wow! Oh, that is so stinking cool! I'm really happy for you. Now, as I'm terribly impatient, I'm desperate for the beta numbers. When will the results be in?

BTW, there's a tea company that makes a pregnanct tea (http://www.traditionalmedicinals.com/?id=30&pid=17) which was really lovely. When I went through IVF, my nurse said not to have any caffeine, as they didn't want torestrict the blood blow in any way to my uterus. I cut out all green and black teas, chocolate and coffee, for just the first trimester. I'm a chocoholic so it was difficlut, but I managed.

Congratulations again! I'm keeping everything crossed!
