@JenniwithanI - interesting the differing opinions on progesterone support. My first bfp, my progesterone was in the 40's and I remained on support for the first 12 weeks. This time it's an astronomical 855! When fn rang with results yesterday, she said stop Crinone. Today my fs rang with the customary congrats call and said keep going. Then five mins later she rang back and said don't, retest Monday.
I'm not sure if the image worked but these are my HPT from 7, 8, and 9 DP5DT. They're slightly darker in reality, the phone doesn't quite show. Anyway, 7dp5dt was the darkest, 8 and 9dp5dt are pretty similar but 9dp5dt (today) is definitely lighter than two days ago. I called nurse yesterday when i got lighter test to ask for progesterone BT, she was lovely but said even if they got figures they would be so low this early that we couldn't determine much anyway. I have BT tomorrow (moved forward 2 days), literally nothing i can do now. Jeez I thought EPU was **** to go through but the psychological stuff is soo much worse!
Just a heads up that this weekend I will attempt a roll call update and start a new thread for us (same title with #2) with the results. Getting a bit unwieldy at 100+ pages!
Will let you know once complete. x
Question: what's everyone's thoughts on not telling partners about BFP's until after the blood test? Is it being deceitful? I just don't want to get dhs hopes up if the blood test hcg is not good.
I guess it depends on the relationship and the partner's feelings. I would try and keep the results from DH if that's what he wanted, but we are the kind of couple who tells each other everything so no, I wouldn't. Trust yourself, you know what's best for you and your DH. Don't worry if it's a bit different from what others would do <3
Thanks @Sharlie! Much appreciated
@DaniSam It never occurred to me not to tell DH what was going on to be honest. From the day of embryo transfer he generally asks me about 10 times a day 'so, are you pregnant?!' so it would be pretty hard to bluff my way through that! I kind of figure, whatever ups and downs, hopes and disappointments this process brings, we're in it together. But by the same token, you know your other half best, so however you think you and he will cope best - do that There's certainly no rule book when it comes to this stuff.
Afm, I had my scan and bloods this morning, so we are all good to go! Jabs start in the morning, so fingers crossed for a better response this time. Please please work!
