Still hanging around?...and an award

I'll freely admit that I have been testing. I just wanted to see if I could actually make a pee stick turn positive. I will say though that it's a little disappointing to see your first BFP and know that it's not real. That being said, it's not going away!!!

I can't believe my HCG trigger is still hanging around. I've googled it to death and I've read that the trigger will usually hang around for 1 day per every 1000 units, so that means 10 days for 10,000 units. I didn't believe it at first, but it does seem to be true.

I refuse to get my hopes up and believe that this could really be a positive. I'm only 9 dpo, but the last 4 days the second line has been the same faint pink color and doesn't seem to be going away completely.

Check out the photos: (Yes I post pictures of things I've peed on, but at least I crop the pee part out! Also, I do realize that there are extra sticks there, I did one the night after the trigger and two the day of ovulation, oldest at the top to today's at the bottom)

I've decided to combine posts too, so I just wanted to thank all of you who nominated me for the Liebster award. I really do appreciate it, I may not be witty, clever or all that entertaining, but I do feel loved, so again thanks!

As with most awards, there are rules, but these are ones I can abide by:

This Award is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers, all in the spirit of fostering new connections. Leibster is German & means ‘dearest’ or ‘beloved’ but it can also mean ‘favorite’. The idea of the Leibster award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers.

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you. (see above)
2. Reveal your top five picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog. (see below)
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog. (see left hand column)
4. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favorite bloggers and keep it going!

My nominations go to:

Tracy at Just Let Go who suffers from RPL and is currently pursuing adoption both in Canada and the US.
Ducky at I'm just Ducky, Thanks who suffers from a heart condition and is having difficulty getting and staying pregnant, she lost her twin boys after her last IVF and is now on to the next round of IVF

Mag at Witty Infertility who is still trying to figure out why she doesn't get regular cycles

These women inspire me and I just think they're great, so if you haven't already, please follow the links and go say hi to them.


  1. I don't blame ya for testing, it's so damn hard to resist. :) We ended up skipping the HCG trigger b/c my body surged on its own (after I already bought the $100 shot, but whatever), so I didn't have to stress about whether that was still in my system or not. At this point, I'd totally keep testing daily if I was you, though I hope for your sake it's blank white tomorrow and then DARK on the following, so you can actually have that strong experience of OMG THERE'S A LINE I'M PREGNANT. :)

  2. Wow, those tests are looking good!! I hope this is it for you!!

    Thanks for the award! :)

  3. DUDE!!!!!!!!!

    That HCG should be gone by now. SOOOOO.....!!!!!!

    I'll keep quiet now :D

    Thanks for the award!!!

  4. Hmmm....I'm betting that the second line doesn't go away, but just starts getting darker :) Very, very promising!

  5. How cool! I did that with my first IUI where we triggered. My 2nd line hung around for about 7 days, and we used a 10,000 unit trigger too... I'm thinking tentatively positive thoughts for you!

  6. I'm crossing my fingers for you, lady! I can't wait to hear how what happens tomorrow!!

  7. Thanks for the award! :)

    I'm sending positive preggers vibes your way. We find out the result of #4 tomorrow, so fingers crossed all around!

  8. Oooh this is so exciting! Fingers crossed that the second line doesn't go away.
    And thanks for the Award =)

  9. Holy shit! I am thinking the HCG should be gone by now!!

  10. Getting a little excited that this might be the real thing. Congrats on your blog award.
