love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
Merry go ’round, you are so much fun…. Not!
So today I took another test. The hcg should definitely be gone by now according to my chart (I’ll post it below).
Well today I got the same faint line. Here’s my rationalization (I told you this is part of the addiction). According to my chart, I had about 19 units of hcg left in me, below the threshold that pregnancy tests measure (around 20-25). If I’m indeed pregnant, then I could have gotten a positive because it was hcg mixed with true hcg from R and M(my embryo in utero names for now.. named for my grandparents. I’ll explain another time). Today’s faint positive could be now reading the hcg only from R and M, which is why it’s still faint. Also I’m technically only 10 days post ovulation, which is the “5 days before your missed period” that the pregnancy tests advertise.
So am I a little pregnant? Time will tell!
ETA: I looked at my chart again, yesterday was supposed to be 9 units in me, definitely too low for the test to read it if it’s still the shot…
