4 Weeks, 2 Days: More Sticks

I'm still very excited and grateful to be pregnant but knowing that I still have many milestones to meet tempers my celebrating a little.  Tomorrow is my second beta and assuming all goes well I still need an ultrasound next week to confirm a uterine pregnancy.

So, in the meantime, here's some more pee sticks.

First up is yesterday's, when my beta was 139.  First morning urine and everything.  I thought it was interesting that the second line was still not super dark even though my beta was over 100 and it's supposed to register a beta of 20 as pregnant.  I guess this is just proof that line darkness doesn't really mean squat.

Not that it's been keeping me from chasing the elusive dark second line.  What can I say?  The sticks are cheap!

And here's today's stick.  11 days past five day transfer, aka 16dpo, aka 4 weeks, 2 days.

Pretty darn dark, right?  But still not darker than the control.  I give up.  No, I don't.  I still have a dozen left.

Fingers crossed for a doubled beta tomorrow.


  1. Lookin' goooood! I can't wait to hear tomorrow's beta #. You go girl :-)

  2. I kept getting squinters on the internet cheapies, but when I used FRER, then I got a real line. It still wasn't really dark for a while though. Hope that helps.

    Can't wait to hear how the beta goes!

  3. I hope you are doing well...I'm thinking of ya and looking forward to updates!
