hi everyone, i am , to no noones surprise i am sure, freaking out. i have the 2 day countdown going now, and its the worst. i am glad i will find out on a weekend, that way i would not have to worry about work. I know i would be a mess if its negative, and being around three kids would be scary! I have had no bleeding as well, so not sure what to think of that. I guess i am glad to hear a lot of you did not either. i almost bought the evil pee stick today, but talked myself out of it. did any of you take one, and what were the results? Stacylynn, ggod luck and try to relax, the last few days i am finding to be the worst. lucliky i have my morning at the spa tomorrow. that should make me ok for the first half of day. i can only imagine how it willl be after i get the blood test and the wait for the call. how long do they make you wait for such an important call? if youdo get pregnant how far along are you when you find out, and how do you figure out due date? Well thanks for thinking of me, and i will post many more times today i am sure due to nerves!

DIane

Diane, I did a pee stick after my blood test because there was no way I was going to sit around all day waiting for them to call. It was positive and I freaked out and drove to where DH was working and started screaming at him (he was under a house!) then I called everyone I ever knew and told them all. It was pretty freakin' exciting. L

Didn't have any bleeding here either.
I went in for my test at 8.30 am, was told to call the nurse at 2pm for the results, dh took the day off work to be with me, by 1pm we gave up all pretence of distracting ourselves and just went upstairs and cuddled. I was a total chicken and made him make the call.. only to be told the lab was running behind that day and could we call back again in an hour!!
Ask them when you go in for the bloodtest when you can call back/expect to hear from them, as I'm sure every clinic/hospital will be different.
I hope the spa tomorrow helps you relax Diane, I'll never forget how hard those last hours were to fill. Sending you and Stacy heaps of positive vibes!! Thinking of you both.

Some cycles I used the pee stick and some I did not. This last cycle I used the pee stick at 10 dpt and got a light line. This freaked me out. Instead of being happy, I convinced myself that the light line meant bad implantation and I was going to have a chemical pg. This is why the pee sticks are evil. I asked a dr (not affiliated with my IVF clinic) to do a beta for me. That light line translated into a beta of 101 which was very good.

On the cycles that I decided I would wait for beta, I peed on a stick and then went to the lab. I did not look at the stick until I got home from the lab. I figured if it was negative, I never would have gone for b/w. I also didn't want to be surprised with bad news from my clinic. I needed to know and be mentally prepared for the call.
