So I just got my beta results and the nurse said they are "basically negative" but want me to repeat the test next week?!?!? WTH??? She said that there may be leftover hcg in my system (17 days later? really?) but they want to be sure. If this is a chemical I am going to lose. my. mind.

AF can show up any second now so I can feel better about this situation. I'm already 2 days late. ARRRRGGGHHH.

Wow! Talk about ridiculously crazy. I'm sorry!

Hoping for your blazing obvious BFP. 17 days past trigger is nuts, and stupid, and... I don't even know. That makes me upset for you. Hang in there and try not to get too crazy stressed about it. We all know how easy that is, right? Heh.

Did she tell you what the number was? I like the labs that just say less then 5 because mine is NEVER 0, it is always 1-3 which confuses some doctors.

I didn't ask for the number and I've been so stressed out this week that it is probably a good thing that I don't have the number. I'm just annoyed bc A) I want AF to show up. NOW. and B) I want to get this show on the road for IUI #2.

I definitely DON'T have a BFP, I'm just really nervous that I had a chemical which just adds another layer of questions to my whole situation.

Kristen - this happened to be earlier this month; i had had a trigger and went to my PCP because i was feeling really dizzy - of course, i thought it was pregnancy; even though i forget what day i was past trigger; maybe 12 or something but the point is, that my HCG blood came back an 8; my PCP called me and told me that i was pregnant, prob a week or so - well, obviously when i called the RE he said that it is more likely that it was residual trigger or a chemical, as the # would have been higher than 8; you should really get the #, as it would give u insight as to what it is that happened; plus, i was spotting too

this whole TTC is such an unknown ; i mean it is so hard to get a straight answer - i feel for you girl!

How long is your LP normally?

I'm really sorry for all the confusion, I hate abnormal cycles that end up in AF anyway...if anything is out of the ordinary I always get my hopes up even more.
