This is very very surreal. This is the LAST cycle I would have expected to get a BFP on, otherwise I'd have been taking my P4 like a good girl. Ugh, I wish my P4 wasn't so low!!
Quite right about the acu. My pulses are very deceptive, I know. I've had a slippery pulse twice and they have both been complete BFNs, not even a low level chemical. He did check my other hand and said one of my pulses there was a bit slippery, so fingers crossed.
Second beta isn't until tomorrow, so all I have to obsess about today is:
The one above is yesterday's (14dpo); the one below is today's (15dpo). Darker, right? OMG!!!! Obsess, obsess ...
