Let the Crazy Begin – 6dp5dt

The lines are still there this morning, but they aren’t any darker than yesterday morning. I can’t even pretend.


I’m a little (ok, a lot) nervous. They’re so faint. I was really hoping for something a bit less squinty this morning.

I know only time will tell, and time really sucks right now.

  1. Honestly, it’s still super early, and the sticks aren’t meant to be compared that way. When is your beta? Hang in there. I know this must be nerve wracking, but try to distract yourself in the mean time.

    • Beta’s not until Monday. They want to make me wait and wait and wait! LOL You’re right though–I need to chill out. It’s just so hard! I really wish I could just sit back and enjoy this. I never imagined that I was going to be this insane. I shouldn’t have let myself test early!

  2. Mine took a few days to get darker. They always do. These look fine. I wouldn’t blow sunshine up your behind with my 8-loss history, I promise. I think you have plenty about which to be hopeful here. Hang in there!!

  3. Yaas! Pee stick madness! Keep peeing on things but don’t compare the lines! Honestly, a line is a line and you’re still so early! Plus, hcg doubles every 24-48 hours so even IF you could tell anything from darkness, it would take two days to see it. I’m so excited fir your lines! !

    • Pee stick madness is right!!! I keep reminding myself how thrilled I am to even have lines to compare. I have lines! Life is good! I just need to sit back and enjoy it!

  4. Oh no, you’re doing exactly what I did. I wish your clinic did an earlier beta! Maybe you could try to get in earlier. My clinic does a 7dp5dt beta, then another one two days later to determine doubling time. I’m sorry you’re going through this, it really is extremely stressful. My nurse said yesterday that sometimes the line doesn’t get darker once it’s positive. Hang in there!

    • I’m actually much calmer this afternoon now that I’ve spent the majority of the morning googling early pregnancy tests and finding a gazillion that look just like mine. I’m just gonna roll with it! Although I’m still considering begging the clinic to let me do my first beta on Friday. My “official” test day would technically be Saturday, which is why they pushed it to Monday, but I think they may need to cut me some slack on this particular technicality!

      • I agree, friday is closer to saturday than monday, and you clearly have an hcg level so it would be helpful. Plus I’m sure they understand that this is really important! Im glad yoh feel better. Googling other women’s analysis of their HPTs actually helped me feel calmer, too. It’s so different for everyone. Hang in there!

  5. The pee sticks are for one time happiness and then as a way to keep yourself busy and drive yourself insane until beta day. Then you move on to beta craziness. ๐Ÿ™‚ Seriously, though, I think all is OK.

    • LOL. This is so true! This whole process just moves you from one form of crazy to the next. I’m just going to embrace it and keep forcing myself to take deep breaths!

  6. No matter what I tell you. You’re gonna panic. But I can’t stress enough how much you shouldn’t. My tests were ALL over the place. I didn’t even get a positive on an FRER until wicked late. It was crazy-making. There are so many factors that go into it. I would hold my pee all night long and test and it would be faint and then hold it 6hrs during the day and it would be so dark. The concentration in your urine depends on so much.

    That all said, you won’t listen. I didn’t when other people told me. So just try to be as calm as possible. Good luck with beta. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

    • LOL. This is probably my favorite comment today!!! You are right on every level. But I promise I’m TRYING to listen. I’m doing a much better job of it now that I have spent most of the day googling images of early pregnancy tests and finding SO MANY that look just like mine. LOL

      • Haha I believe you! It is so much easier said than done, hun. Believe me. I know. ๐Ÿ˜€ You’re in no way wrong for POASing and worrying. Just comes with the territory. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And someday you will read someone’s blog saying the same thing you did here and you will comment, as I have, because you will then have the wisdom. Its like the circle of life or something, only with IF. ๐Ÿ˜€

        Thinking sticky healthy embie thoughts for youuuuuuu!!!! โค

    • I’m hanging! Feeling much better about it this afternoon. I’
      m happy to see your face pop up here–I hope things at work are going okay for you and that it’s not too rough! You’ve been in my thoughts!

  7. Like everyone else said, it’s still early, so try your best not to go nuts..easier said than done, i know…that’s why we chose not to test before the beta…we knew we would make ourselves nuts…it’s a different kinda of crazy than testing…put there is still a line there…

  8. Haha I love this. I was a stick peeing addict. My wife thought I was nuts so I secretly peed on sticks every single day for 2 weeks after the first positive to make sure that it was still positive.So excited for you and can’t wait for that beta.

    • I was pregnant with twins, but miscarried one of them at about 8 weeks. Super high initial betas, and crazy doubling rates. Gave birth to a healthy baby girl 9 mos later. She’s 4.5 now. ๐Ÿ™‚
