Re: Ghost

Hi Ninde, I am sorry that this cycle didn't work for you. I know I am not Ghost but I wanted to let you know that my clinic in Canada is the same. I had lots of bleeding early on with both my cycles and the second time I was freaking out about the bleeding even though I had a BFP. My clinic uses Pro...

Re: spotting?????? plz resond

Hi Hopeful, I had lots of bright red bleeding that started at 9 DPT a 3DT. I took an HTP that day and it was neg. I honestly don't recall if there was any cramping as I was convinced that there was no hope. I had started my period on the very same day after my 1st IVF so I figured that was it. There...

Re: spotting?????? plz resond

Hopeful, Congrats on your positive HPT! And do stay hopefull. I had lots of bright red bleeding during my seocnd IVF and I have a wonderful almost 2 y.o. son as a result! It seems that bleeding in early pregnancy can happen fairly frequently after IVF. Good luck and keep us posted about your beta #s...

Re: DONOR EGG Tmt Thread... " Egg-heads"

Hi Ladies, I thought I would bump this post up. I know it has fizzled out, but I really appreciate being able to read everyone's stories as I am now faced with looking in to donors. I am still not through all the posts, but I do want to read it all eventually. I am pleased to see that some former cy...

Re: Ghost, Dr. Marcus, Anyone???? Please Help....

Hi, I just thought I'd chime in here, too. I once made a new account to send a PM when I couldn't remember my password and I did not have permission to send PMs because I had not made enough posts, so I don't know if that will work. Unless you wan to make a bunch of phoney posts all in row! :lol: Ju...

what do these number mean? Ghost or anyone?

Hi all, I just had a failed FET (beta was 0 on 04/7) and went for my 3-day blood work on 04/12. My FSH was 11.5 and my estradiol was 179. Does this look like DOR? My first cycle in March 2009 I only produced 7 mature eggs, 4 fertilized (with ICSI), one arrested, one was frozen and two were transferr...

Re: Get AF while on progesterone & waiting for beta? 2WW

Hi Karen, I was on Prometrium for both my cycles. Betas at my clinic are for 17 days after transfer (if I remember that correctly) and they told me the same thing about getting AF first. The first cycle (BFN) I started spotting about 12 days after transfer and had full flow the next day, all while I...

Re: trying for number two--is it any easier?

Hello everyone, I hope to be trying for #2 by the spring. I thought it would be easier, but so far I seem to be feeling an awful lot like I was the first time around! I recognise a few of your names from all of the reading I did when I started out. I am so happy to hear your LOs are doing well. If y...

Re: Spring 2010 mummys

Hi TIa, I'm in the Vancouver, BC area. So I'm north of you - a very long way north of you!! I can imagine it was scary having Savannah arrive so early. I am glad she is doing well now. I would love it if we ended up cycling togther. I thought maybe trying for #2 would seem less daunting, but so far ...

Re: 2ww & spotting

Hello, I just wanted to offer you ladies some hope. My second try I started spotting at 9 or 10 days past transfer and when I took an HTP it was a BFN. I sobbed and cried for two days before I finally managaed to call my clinic and asked if I could go for my beta early to get the inevitable over wit...

Hi Ladies, I would love to join you if you'll have me! I remember many of you from cycling together in the past. I also read the April babies thread a few times, so recognize some of you from there. I have been off this site except for reading every now and then and catching up with some old friends...

Hi hrobinson and Michele, I was thinking the same thing about Jake. He is so cautious and analytical that I can't imagine him having the guts to propose to someone. But I'm hoping he is able to find happiness - and I'm thankful we get to watch it all unfold! Reality shows are my guilty pleasure!! I ...

Of the final 3 I thought they deserved it most. I couldn't stand the brothers with all the yelling, whining and w...
