"Let's Make A Deal" or other ways to make the next few days pass a little less painfully!

Three more full days before my beta. It's time to play the IVF version of "LET'S MAKE A DEAL!"

Should I select Door #1!

Take the Evil Piss Test Thursday or Friday (I only have one left in the drawer and I swear I'm not buying another)...

Or, should I select Door #2!

Wait until Saturday a.m. beta results, which will mean an early bloodletting and then waiting a couple hours before I get any results...

Or, should I select Door #3!

Take the Evil Piss Test Saturday a.m. and THEN do the beta just so I can see if the hospital would acutally admit me for a mental condition when the fucking piss test glares back at me with only 1 line in a symbolic gesture of "the finger!"

Now remember, your choice will be negated in the event there is an early arrival of any one of the following: Aunt Flow, Bloody Bloomers, The Visitor, Maroon 5 (god, I wish I could remember who put that in their post once!), Mentrual Cycle, Moon Blood, etc., etc.

The voting process will begin NOW! In the event of a tie, I'll just do what I want to do...so there. *****raspberry******

I vote for Friday. If it is positive, it bodes well for Saturday. If it is negative, it doesn't mean a thing and you have the beta to say for sure on Saturday.

But then what do I know?

I would go for option 2. I mean, really, those pee tests have such a HIGH false negatives when taken early...why take one and have the possibility of a false negative to dash your hopes so soon?

Maybe just give it a little more time...but that's just me.

Don't do it! The chance of false negative is too high. As you know, I got negative on the "early predictor" test and didn't even get a faint line when I did one just for fun, until my beta was 62 - and it supposedly picks up 15-25. I really wish I hadn't done the one before my first beta.

I also vote for #2 but then again, I tested early & got a BFN but I *knew* it should have been a positive. So how DO you feel????

If there's any way that you can wait....wait. HPT's are the fast track to crazy town.

I'm not sure what you should do. With my last injectible/IUI cycle I did a pee stick the morning of the beta, which, of course, was negative. I felt like an idiot and almost lost it while she took my blood. BUT, I was very glad when the phone call came and I was mentally prepared for the news. I would think if by some miracle, the beta had been positive I would have been overjoyed and that would be really cool. So, I personally am glad I did it and got the bad news in the privacy of my own powder blue bathroom.

I don't know if that helps, just my 2 cents. I hope you can find some peace and distraction the next couple days. I know its hard. I'll be thinking of you.

I'm with Joie- do it Saturday. At least that way, if its a negative, you are somewhat mentally prepared in case the blood test does come out negative.

Try to hang in there... I so hope this works for you.

Am I the only one who would take the test Thursday? I once got a positive FRE with FMU and my beta was 6. So I'm all for home diagnostics as long as they're taken with a grain of salt. Good luck!!!!!

Susan (holding pattern) first used the maroon 5 moniker as far as I can remember. I'd be peeing already and I'd certainly want to know before the clinic called me if poss, but you need to do what works for you!
