AHHHH!!! Okay, I made it through my other 2ww's but this time I can't stand it. I am now 7 days post frozen embryo transfer and I just snuck out and bought an HPT. My beta isn't till the 28th and my husband would kill me if he knew I bought an HPT. Do I take it alone and don't tell him? Do I not take it at all and wait? Do I tell him I bought them and have him with me? Do I phone a friend and take it? Help!!!!

Such a tough call... I know most gals here will tell you to do it... I know that I've done it myself and but I always knew it would be negative. I know that DH would be hurt if he found out because I know he always says he wants to be there because the first time, I took a test and just kind of woke him up out of a dead sleep and he feels like he missed out...

So with frozen you didn't trigger did you?? I'm not familiar with how that works, but know that you might get a false positive if you have any trigger left - I think rule of thumb is around 10 days past trigger for it to leave your system...

I probably will test a few days before my beta just because I don't want to wait... Sorry- that probably wasn't helpful at all huh? Good luck and KUP!!!!! FX that this is it for you!

Thanks for the input.... Don't know what I'll do but I feel like I will have to loop in my husband either way. Maybe at the very least I should tell him the HPT's are on the premises!

With a frozen cycle there is no trigger shot so any hcg in your system is pregnancy related. I have heard that frozen embryos take longer to implant and have lower initial beta results though. I wish I could just be put under general anesthesia for the 2ww!

Good luck to you! BTW - being a newbie what does KUP and FX mean?

I had to ask the same about the FX. I could NOT figure it out for the life of me! LOL!

So the update is I couldn't resist. I really broke down and got the 6 pack so I could see a progression and actually my husband thought I was crazy but in the end has been very supportive. I have now done four mornings in a row. The first morning you could barely see a second line (two lines being a positive)! This morning two dark pink lines!
