You all calmed me down yesterday and forced some reason into my brain. You reminded me that the deed is done and what will be will be.
It is a good thing we had this talk yesterday, because today (I think I am now 11dp3dt) I went to the restroom at 11:30 am and here was brown blood. Quite a bit. Wiping produced more. And more.
Uh, I would have thought any implantation bleeding would have shown up like 4 or 5 days ago. I also noticed some cramping today too. Not really AF cramping, but definite cramps.
Nope, I did not panic. Instead, we went out to lunch. If it is implantation bleeding, well, it will do its thing, finish up and all will be fine. If it is a sign of impending doom, well, there is nothing I can do about that. The good news is that the pee stick was definitely darker today.
So, amazingly, I am calm. Tomorrow's beta will be a number, but the real information will come with Wednesday's 2nd beta. Number up or number down. Someone will need to remind me how the doubling works. The only beta I ever had was with a m/c, so I never knew the "doubling rule" calculation.
With this lab, I NEVER have results before 2:00 or 3:00 in the afternoon. So it's going to be a long day's wait.
Thanks, all, for helping me find and maintain my sanity.
I also wanted to congratulate Lorraine at Elderly Ovary for her positive pee stick (hurray!) and also Cindy at Bang head here
for making it to the head of the DE line and choosing an egg donor so that she and her partner can prepare to begin her cycle (yippee!). Best of luck to you!
