mahalo10 - No 50% chance overall that one will stick. Are you doing acupunture as well with your IVF treatment?

Thanks Supergenius. Well it's done. They called and said my RE wanted me to get the shots. So I went 2hrs up the road again and the nurse gave me it. It should take about 2 days to start it's process. I'm not looking forward to cramps and pain, but I want this over with. I have to go back in on Mond...

Thanks tc. Well i'm back and it's not such good news. There is still a part of the sac left, the RE presumes. We could see it right away as soon the tech started the u/s. I've been crying and very very sad. It sturs up all the emotions I went through 3 weeks ago. They took 3 vials of blood, said the...

Would a D & C be required or will it eventually pass? I'm not bleeding anymore though.

Beta didn't hardly go down...GHOST?

I went for my 'declining' beta this morning it was 186. Last Thursday it was 191. The nurse said the Dr wants me back in tomorrow for more blood work and also an ultra sound to see what's going on. What could it be??? I m/c on 12/26/09. I saw the sac and passed many blood clots and when I went to th...

Well bad news. My beta didn't come down this week. Hardly anyway. It was 186 from 191. So they are worried. I have to go back in tomorrow (another 2hr drive :evil: ) for more b/w and an u/s to see what's going on. God I don't know what it could be. Left over tissue? They said I passed everything at ...

Re: How many days past a 5 day transfer did you do an hpt?

My beta is scheduled for Thurs 1/14. My ET was on 1/4. I still haven't had the courage to do an hpt. Just wanted to know when you guys tested after a 5 day blastocyst transfer? I might just wait it out till the beta. Did any of you ever wait it out till the beta or am I just a big chicken!? I teste...

hrobinson - Wonderful ladies indeed. I hope and pray for the same thing for us. #4 IVF too huh? It's just so hard to think I'm going on #4 when I thought #2 would be enough. I guess you just find the way to keep going because you just want it so bad in your heart. I've never gotten this far in 15 yr...

Sak - Yes, you are correct about it helping with preventing your immune system from fighting off the embies. 0.05mg is the norm I guess. I hope you get your BFP!! BRMommy2B - Congrats again!

Sak - What dosage does the dr have you on? I was on it last cycle from Day 6 of stims till we heard the baby's heartbeat. I took 0.05mg a day. A very very low dose. I will say I did have some nights I got up and couldn't sleep, but I was pg (didn't know it yet) and was very hungry and I think that's...
