4dp5dt: Faint Lines and Frosties

Hello from Peesville, USA!

Ok first things first, this is a line, right?  I mean, I know it is but is it getting darker than the pathetic lines I had been seeing?  They all pretty much looked like the one I posted on Monday.

This morning I woke up at 2:30 in the morning with an urgent need to pee so of course I peed in a cup and saw the most pathetic squinter line known to man.  I peed again this morning at 8:00 and the result was largely the same.

But now, 2:00 p.m. on the fourth day past my five day transfer after a 5.5 hour hold I get this:

And I KNOW it's really early and I KNOW it could just be the trigger, but can't I just be on the winning side of odds for once?  I read about someone who got a BFP three days past a five day transfer (a FET I think so no annoying trigger to confuse things).  I wasn't that lucky but can I be the second most lucky infertile person?  Please universe?!

Now onto the good news.  My IVF nurse called to tell me we have SIX FROSTIES, or frozen embryos for the uninitiated.  Three were frozen on Day 5 and are a 4AA (good), 3CC (poor) and 2BB (fair).  Three more were frozen on Day 6 and are a 4CC (poor), 3CC (poor) and 3C (poor).  And I don't really know what those grades mean but hopefully I won't even have to think about those frosties for at least a year or so when the insurance company stops paying the freeze fee.

No symptoms.  Up two pounds from yesterday but still down four overall from retrieval day.  I really really hope to see some darker lines in the near future.


  1. It looks like a line to me for sure. I'm not sure how trigger shots work, but that's definitely a line. I really hope it's a "baby" line and not a "trigger" line!

  2. So, I hate to fuel the false optimism fire because I know how hard the letdown can be, but that line looks much darker than the one you posted several days ago. I can't wait to see your next line! Good luck!
