At 10 days post-transfer, today we had the blood pregnancy test…which was positive! Truth be told, we actually did a home pregnancy test (HPT) last night, which showed the two joyful pink lines!
I really had not wanted to do the HPT last night, because I was operating under the assumption that it was going to be negative – either because 1.) we weren’t pregnant, or 2.) simply because I know you are supposed to do it in the morning when the urine is most concentrated, and I didn’t want it to be a false negative and have to deal with the disappointment unnecessarily. But, we decided to do it anyway, just to get it over with. And now I’m glad we did!
Today’s beta-hCG was 185 mIU/ml, which is right around the median level on BetaBase (which is probably not the most scientifically sound, but you have to give them credit for sample size) for singleton pregnancies. Of course, the real test will be the repeat beta-hCG in two days from now when a doubling time can be calculated.
