Till we can be done with this pee and squint and tweak nightmare and actually have a real number to associate with this pregnancy.  While nothing is set in stone-there is a web site that has a data base of women who have gone on to have healthy full term pregnancies-and compiled their data by age.  My absolute hope is that I can be in the average tomorrow-to set my mind at ease that right now things are as good as good can be.

Here’s the beta HCG chart for my age (35)-tomorrow I will be 14dpo or exactly 4 weeks pregnant-so using this chart, anything above 95 would make me absolutely thrilled:

And for what you all have been anxiously waiting for today’s installment of…

Things I’ve peed on!

This is a side by side comparison of the very first stick that I had to tweak at 11dpo that I could see a hint of something on there, the middle stick is my darkest one from yesterday (12dpo)-I say darkest because just before bed I had a lighter test than the afternoon and this mornings test at 13dpo which is on the bottom-this picture hasn’t been edited at all it is straight out of camera:

And here’s the line up starting with the morning of egg retrieval 13 days ago through today, again this test hasn’t been edited at all either:
