Hi. My name is Samantha and I’m an addict. I use probably two or three times a day no matter what I tell myself I am or am not going to do. This is an expensive habit, especially since I’ve started using the good stuff. You know, the First Response Early Results? Instead of just the cheapies that fly by at 88 cents a piece, now I’m paying over twenty bucks for three tests. Oh, but they are good. Real good. I actually got my first BFP yesterday on a whim…
Here’s the story. Yesterday around lunch time, I had to go pick up food for an event at work and I got where I was going early so I stopped by CVS, bought a three pack of FRER, and went home (a couple blocks away) to take the test. So, I took the test and immediately started getting upset when a pink little line didn’t immediately appear when the dye ran across the screen. I put the test on the table and turned away only to glance my bad boy, Bram, reaching up and trying to grab the test off the table with his paw! I quickly snatched it away and that’s when I saw the miracle. The BFP. But, I didn’t really believe it. I mean, I used Wal-Mart tests to test out the trigger shot, not FRER. Anyways, I took it with a grain of salt and tried not to get too excited (I did stop by and show DH at work though!). When I got home from work at 5pm I decided to test again. With a FRER and a Wal-Mart test. The FRER was a little darker and the Wal-Mart test actually showed an incredibly faint, but colored, line! Of course I tested again this morning and the FRER line was darker and so was the Wal-Mart test line. It looks like our first IVF worked! I’m being ever so cautiously-optimistic though because I know so many things can go wrong and I haven’t even had a Beta yet.
That being said, I know I don’t have many followers (lol) but if you choose not to follow me anymore because of this, I completely understand. It is very, extremely upsetting when someone else gets a BFP and you don’t have yours yet. And, although DH and I have been trying for well over two years, I know many others have been trying for much longer.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well for me and the little baby/babies and I sincerely hope everyone else gets their BFPs soon!
