7DPO

Is it 7dpo, cause I'm not entirely sure that I ovulated on CD14, it could have been early CD15. I know you are suppose to wait till 7dpo to get your blood done, but I figure if I go on the best info I have, it is probably 7dpo. On the brightside, I'm basically 1 week down, one week to go.

I POAS'd this morning to make sure that the trigger is gone. Nothing but pure whiteness and a control line. I wasn't going to do this, but it had been nearly a week since I peed on anything and I needed to get my fix.

Then I went gave blood for my progesterone test. It went well, although I predict a small bruise.

I'm really curious to hear what my number is. I think my LP is going well so far (nipples still stand at the ready), but I have told myself that if I get a low P4 that I should probably tone down the optimism a little for my own self preservation. But I'm feeling good about it for now, especially since I swear I can feel my CL. I know you all probably think I'm nuts (and you're probably right in certain areas), but I'm telling you it's that or I really do need a lap, cause this ain't normal ovary pains trying to trick me into believing that something is going on down there (although my left one is still doing that trick, I've learned to ignore it).

I asked the phlebotomist how I could get a beta processed quickly, and she said it doesn't matter where I get it done, it will basically take the same amount of time unless the Dr. writes STAT on the order. Sigh....

Oh, yeah, and the TCOYF and my acupuncturist's wife... I told her I wouldn't give her the book if it wasn't approved reading with her husband. She let me know that there is a PERMANENT form of birth control in place (I will decline to state which one has it and how permanent it is, but it's pretty much a done deal that no biological kids are coming out of that pair) there so it's really just so that she can better understand her cycle. So, I apparently wasn't meddling. Relief.

Can you imagine the business a "P 4/ beta on demand" store would do? Cash only of course.

Grr. Waiting. Nothing sucks as much as waiting.

Amanda said...

Yeah, but only the infertile girls worry about that stuff. The rest of the world pees on a stick, sees 2 lines and calls every person they know to tell them they are pregnant. Wouldn't that be fun?

Celia said...

Yeah, that probably is fun. Or so I imagine. I am so thankful I did not do that, because then I would have had to "untell" everyone.

Amanda said...

Heck, If I get preggers, I probably won't tell all the non essential people till I'm 4 months along, unless I have really obvious morning sickness or something like that. If I get bigger I can just make more jokes that I need to lay off the twinkies.

Isn't getting to 7DPO such a relief? That was the feeling I had most - that everything was working and I could take a breath now. Good luck with the next week! I'll be thinking of you and hoping for a BFP! Yeah!

Do you have a paper beta script? Just write StAT on it yourself. I work for a hospital, and the lab techs there suggested that for mine. She said that the people running the labs never see the paper, just those who put it in the computer :)

Nice to know i am not the only one who tests out their triggers. Hee hee.

**And no, I was underwearless under that sexy open in the back gown :)

Oh, that's sneaky.
