    Hey Ladies I got my first beta results back today (11dp3dt) and it was a 12. The nurse said that we should be cautiously optimistic and that she has seen some women have low numbers like this end up having perfectly healthy pregnancies but that it is possible for it to go the other way.

    I am just looking for some encouragement and some success stories because we do not have any frozen embryos and this might be our last shot :cry:

    Thank you

    I only have digital clear blue easy that say "pregnant/not pregnant" so no line to analyze! I was thinking I getting some regular one but I heard that blue dye tests are unreliable...what are some good brands?

    Well I took one on Saturday- 8dp3dt and it said negative- I realized after posting here and doing some googling that it was way too early! I haven't taken another one, I thought that maybe the numbers weren't high enough to read in a urine test? Maybe I'll take another one tomorrow :)

    Hi aimze- sorry I didn't see your message from yesterday. I wish I had gotten some sticks so I could see if there was a line because I took another digital this morning and it said "not pregnant." I go back and forth between trying to tell myself that maybe the numbers went up but not high enough for this test to read and then sobbing because I'm not sure what to think and I'm trying to be hopeful but I keep seeing that negative test in my mind... I have all these symptoms that I'm not sure if they are from the POI shots or the real deal. I'm exhausted, really hungry all the time and my boobs are so sore and look like a road map with all these blue veins... but negative hpt's. I just don't know what to think. Now I've been laying here crying for 2 hrs and I'm even more exhausted and just feel so defeated. I'll go get my blood taken then go to work early... and stare at the clock all day. Last time they didn't call until almost 3 so it'll be a long day. I am praying for good news...

    How are you doing?

    Oh no :-( can you call them earlier?

    I really hope it's good news...

    It's not unknown for some ladies to never get positive on tests an only blood...


    Thinking of you xx

    Thank you so much aimze, I really appreciate it! They do all the appointments in the morning and the call backs in the afternoon. Hopefully it will be earlier this time but we'll see.
    That makes me feel a little bit better that some women don't get + on hpt only blood... gives me a little hope :)

    Thinking of you Jenny, hope you get good news today :hugs:

    Also I've been advised to stay away from the clear blue test as they are not always correct ! xx

    Thank you ladies! I really appreciate all the encouragment and good thoughts. I'm trying to stay positive and have good thoughts but its just so hard...
    Sandy do you really think a clear blue easy digital could be wrong? Man if that's the case I would be SO happy!

    My mam works in a doctors surgery and the mid wife told her that they aren't very sensitive the cheaper brands are better and she has known them to give a false negative so there is still hope :hugs: xx
