Awesome @Tahli!!! Do you know what the hcg levels are on those things - as in what range between? Just curious. But great news, I think you're officially all good lovely!
@Rhino I'm a bit like you with the sticks, once I've got a BFFP I'm happy with that..I think too many sticks would have me in a state wondering if they are getting darker. I just want the end of the week to come so I can be put out of my misery
As a matter of fact I do Luv (- @Tahli...You'll be interested in this too)
d. Detection limit: Sensitivity/cut-off studies were combined with the precision study. See results in Section 1.a. above. The following are the cut-off thresholds of the candidate device:· Not pregnant/pregnant 1-2 threshold = 10 mIU/mL· Pregnant 1-2/pregnant 2-3 threshold = 156 mIU/mL,· Pregnant 2-3/pregnant 3+ threshold = 2600 mIU/mL.

Hi everyone thanks so much for your kind words. Theyve helped very much to put things in perspective. Im reflecting on my "worst nightmare" comment yesterday. Ive realised what happened is not in this category. Worst nightmare are things like, getting hit by a bus, dh getting hit by a bus, my pet cats getting hit by a bus etc... And that hasnt happened. @Charlie74 ive also been thinking about the comment you made about 'catastrophic thinking' which has also been helpful. Yesterday i went from thinking the cycle was doomed after the 3 day transfer and dh's sperm issues, to thinking i had meningococcal or some weird foreign disease and then for some reason thinking that my cats would all be dead when i got home, you know because 1 negative thing happened, of course that means that everything else in life would go to s h i t. And then i thought 'you're thinking catastrophically'. And its so helpful to be able to step back and identify this rationally.
So, in all my previous ivf, to me, a 3 day transfer meant "its not going to work but we feel sorry for you and we'll transfer anyway because it will make you feel better than getting nothing on day 5". I guess im also not really well informed about the effect of poor sperm on embys which also makes it difficult for me to assess my chances with these embies. But anyway, your positive stories have helped and i am grateful to have 2 embys on board. Things could be much worse. xox
Girls, I wanted to say a heartfelt thank-you for your encouragement and support during my POAS-a-thon. Today's pic of my embryo and Clearblue digital test will be my last POAS pic. I'm happily passing the POAS baton over to the rest of the September Sisters. Good luck girls!!
Ah @gorgeousgeorge I am so glad you had a FS with a heart to go through a plan b with you. Still I am crossing everything you don't need it. It could be that those 2 eggs have enough energy to overcome any sperm deficiencies.
