Another chemical I think...

Another chemical I think...

Today is hubby’s birthday when I was hoping I could present him with a positive test as a big surprise, so I’ve been testing in secret which has been tough but felt like it would be worth it.

However... this mornings test is lighter than yesterday AM and PM and I’m pretty sure it’s a fail again 😢😢😢😢

Why do my embryos not stick... this is with steroids and clexane this time 😢

Don’t know how to break it to hubby now

Don’t lose hope yet, they look pretty positive to me. When is your OTD? xxx

Beta is meant to be Monday but hubby is having an op that day so Tuesday. I can’t see how a lighter test shows anything other than starting to fail 😢

I got a bit addicted to POAS and ended up emailing first response because it was stressing me out and sending me crazy. I had some tests that got lighter and some where the test line was stronger than the control line and vice versa and they told me it didn’t matter about the strength of the line and that two lines were a positive. I really hope this is the case for you. Good luck for your beta, I’ve got everything crossed for you xxx

Just wait and see - tomorrow might be darker again. 6 and 7 look pretty similar to me....

It might be the difference in the time of day you pee....

A line is a line sweetie. You can’t tell anything from darkness.

I agree - there are 2 lines there, so don't give up hope! Xxxx

As long as you’ve got a line, that has got to be a good sign. Don’t give up hope yet. Also you had two put back I so could it be that one has taken, not two and that’s why slightly lighter? Keeping everything crossed for you x

I know, I keep thinking maybe there were two and now one has failed hence it being slightly lighter... but struggling to actually believe that. I’ve always sort of known when I’ve had positives exactly when it starts to fail, can’t really explain. Xx

Lovely please don't give up yet I know exactly what your saying, just remember strength if urine etc. Please just hold out till otd. I'm praying this bubu is a sticky one bless ya.😘💝

Did you have 1 or 2 put back? Could be just 1 has taken. Or it could mean absolutely nothing and your wee was a bit more diluted and everything's fine! 😁 try and stay positive hun as a line is a line don't you go giving up hope yet! 😘 happy birthday to your hubby hun you very naughty for all that testing 😉😉 easier said than done I know 😘😘

Had 2 put back. Keep hoping maybe they both taken and maybe now there is only one and that’s why it’s gone lighter... rather than it just being over.

Ahhh I know I’m naughty but I’m a total control freak so there’s no way I would ever not test 🙈

I just been reading your posts did you end up putting back your good day 3 or your not so good day 5s? Try not to stress hun, try and stay positive. I know how hard it is I'm dreading round 2 next month tbh. Just try and enjoy hubby bday if you can and I'm throwing handfuls of virtual baby dust at you right now!!! 😘😘

Two 5CCs. The “good” day 3 arrested at day 4 so I’m so relieved that we didn’t transfer that one!x

See!! You just never know! Good ones don't always work, the embryologist can grade them and say this or that but alot of times the "bad" ones do work! Hang I there hun a lines is a line 😍

Oh Orla hopefully it's just been the dilution of your urine. I don't think they look that different although may look different in real life! Maybe it could be that one embie has stuck and one hasnt....Im sure you said you'd planned to transfer 2?! I think if you can just let hubby enjoy your birthday until you do a few more tests then that's what I would do although appreciate it's not that easy!! Sending hugs.xxxx

Ah Orla I'm sorry you've got this worry. Day 6 AM and today's AM do look similar - so maybe it's urine strength as people say. I know it will be hard but try not to do any more until your test day. I hope your hubby is having a good bday and wish him well for his op. Look after yourself over the next few days. Xxx

I know how horrible it is after a chemical to have another BFP and then be convinced the same thing is happening again. 7dp5dt is still earlyish and as the other ladies have said, the strength of your urine could be different on different days. I know from experience that nothing anyone says to you will ease the worry (for me it didn’t go until the 7 week scan). I’ve got everything crossed for you that this one sticks though x
