9DP4DT - 13DPO - Seeing Olive Green

This morning's trip to the bathroom at work left me with a weird surprise. I had olive green discharge like the color of the olives right here. Now I have been on estrace vaginally since ER and its a blue pill and I have to wear a pantyliner everyday because the blue flows back out at some point during the day. So my first reaction was oh no, I'm spotting red and its mixing with the blue to make this color. But its been a while since I've been in elementary school and couldn't figure out what color red and blue makes so I pull up google. Red and blue makes purple. Well that doesn't make sense because I'm positive it was olive green. So my next thought is that maybe I was spotting brown and it mixed with the blue. Okay, I guess. I hear that a lot of women spot with IVF cycles and it should be okay. It only happened twice on two different bathroom trips this morning and only when I used the bathroom. Nothing was on my pantyliner, so I guess that is reassuring.

Tomorrow is the big day. I'm nervous, but feel pretty confident about it as my test are still looking good. I read something yesterday that said a pregnancy test doesn't tell you how pregnant you are, but gives you a yes or no answer to if you are pregnant or not. I've been trying to decide what my beta would be based on the darkness of my test but its just a waiting game and tomorrow I shall know.

Here are the test from this morning:

Hey! thanks for checking in today. I love pitt bulls too. Most of the ones I've known have been very sweet.

I was thinking about your olive green. According to a zip lock bag commercial, yellow and blue make green. Yellow is normal plus blue of the pill = green. Maybe that was it. congrats on the first beta! Still keeping you both in my prayers.

Congrats! It's SO nice to find someone else who's as obsessed with taking pregnancy tests and I am! I seriously can't wait the few days until my missed period! I see too that you're going back to work, so feel free to check out my blog ( if you'd like. It's always nice to have support from other working moms. Good luck and enjoy your little one!
