BFP!!! 5 weeks today. :D Did an ultrasound on myself yesterday and it was quite difficult, but very hilarious, and there is a teeny tiny sac right where it should be! My betas were 89, 202, 386.

Thanks for asking!

I can pretty much guess it was from intercourse. Your cervix is very soft and full of blood. Any manipulation can cause some bleeding. And since it stopped, I would bet that's what caused it.

Spotting is very common in the first trimester of pregnancy. As the pregnancy grows it continues to imbed into the endometrial lining causing small breaks in the endometrium. The brownish spotting means old blood which is probably due to that reason. Also the cervix is very soft and full of blood so...

Neither have I. The few ultrasounds that occur during your pregnancy should not harm the pregnancy.

I want to be optimistic, I really do, but chances are you are not pregnant. Though you should still go in for the blood test on Saturday to be absolutely sure. My thoughts are with you.

You are fine....discharge is very common during the stim phase and chances are you did not ovulate yet. The lupron should prevent that. The reason they decreased the Bravelle is that you are responding beautifully and they do not want to overstimulate you. If the discharge becomes bothersome wear a ...

9.2mm lining is great for a transfer. There is no need to increase your Estrace and I would never increase or decrease medication without your doctors approval. If the doctor ever felt that the lining wasn't adequate he/she would have said so. Good luck on Monday! :D

TooBee, I can not believe your RE told you these drugs can't cause bloating, etc.... It's called OHSS and a major side effect of the meds!! And you have several of the symptoms. Bloated, decreased urinary production and I'm assuming weight gain! I am concerned that you have this condition and if I w...

You probably won't get OHSS if you haven't had symptoms already. Good luck on the beta.

A very common side effect of suppositories is cramping, irritation and spotting. There are different kinds so if it is really bothering you let your doctor know and maybe they can switch you to a different one.

I agree with Ghost. I have seen a lot of beta's that start off that low continue on fine. The next beta is crucial though! Good luck!

I know you are only 26, but an egg quality issue could be a factor. How did the oocytes look at time of retrieval? I think you have a great chance of success, I would recommend transferring 3 though to give you a better chance. Good luck!
