My FRER test was MUCH darker this morning, but I'm still bleeding on and off, it's not like a normal AF, but it's much more than spotting. Had b/w this morning, but by the time the results come in, I'll be on the plane. I'm going to email Melissa as soon as we're settled at the hotel with the beta results and ask her to update you guys.

But I'm still feeling okay. Either way, I know that this is a positive thing. It shows that I can get pregnant and it has given me renewed hope to go forward with a third IVF cycle. If a little four cell could implant, then I know I have a chance with a 6-8 cell embryo and that has been so comforting. I'm prepared for this to be a chemical pregnancy based on my bleeding, but I am still praying for a Melissa-type miracle.

I did, however, pack four FRERs and four digitals for the trip, so I can have a sense of what is going on. I also packed my progesterone and tampons and pads. My god, I hope they don't pick me out to check my bags.

Besides that, DH and I have promised each other that we will try to just relax. I'll be drinking nice sugary non-alcoholic pina coladas!!

Thank you all so much for your continued support and your thoughts and prayers. I wish I could tell you each how much you mean to me. You have shown me unconditional love and support, and provided more guidance than I ever could have imagined.

When I return, I plan on staying on the board. I'm going to be more careful about what I post, but I think my hurt over what happened, is outweighed by what you all provide me --- love, support, and a heavy dose of sanity. I love you all so much.

I'm praying for you and your bean, Addie! I know how you are feeling.

Please do let Melissa know your beta results!

And have a FABULOUS time on your trip! Enjoy the warm weather, time with hubby, and the yummy tropical drinks

You are right--you CAN get pregnant and no matter what the result of this, that is a positive silver lining!

I also looked at my IUI the same way, if for some reason it didn't turn out well, at least I knew it worked and I wasn't left hanging in the dark whether I could continue or need to see an RE for IVF.

It's nice to hear about the FRER being much darker....I hope you are just a bleeder and all will be well for this pregnancy!

Be Safe!

I am so happy to hear this update. I think your lines getting darker is a good sign. I am still praying and sending sticky vibes your way.

I know I have posted this a few times but when I got pregnant with Jeremy I had a lot of bleeding with him. I bled until I was 12 weeks along. I think maybe that is why I can be hopeful even though you are having bleeding. I have also had several losses so I am not naive, but I am very hopeful that you have a sticky baby in there.

Sending lots of prayers your way. I can't wait for the update!

I'm so thrilled that your line is darker, Addie! This is a great sign. I also find your perception of things to be so clear and level-headed. What a great head you have on your shoulders! I'm praying your news is FANTASTIC and we all get to do a little dance for you today. I know it will be one step at a time, and I hope every step leads to great things and a sweet, healthy baby in your arms in about 9 months!

I've been searching all over here looking for the updates! LOL

I'm so happy the line was darker today Addie And I'm so happy you're staying on the boards!! Are you staying on TTC#1, too?? Because I really wouldn't mind you joining the grads with me and you can't be a grad there if you don't stay! You'll have to be a grad somewhere else and I'll pout LOL

GL sweetie, and enjoy your trip! It's too bad hotels don't stock FRERs in the mini-bar, eh? LOL
