Re: Third Beta did not double :(

Angela, thanks for replying and making me feel better. I hope what you are saying is true me for me too :) The only other thing that is bothering me is the fact that two days after my first beta, I started having a lot of nausea and extreme hunger which completely vanished by the third day (the day ...

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!?

Cramping after ET and freaking out!

I had some cramping on the next day and then nothing at all and then more cramping on and off for a few days as if AF was coming. Now I get very very mild cramps from time to time. I am worried that something is going wro...

Thank you ladies. Your replies gave me a bit of relief. Any reason why they put us on it? I read somewhere that it is to prevent your immune system from attacking the embies. I am also on a very low dose of 0.5 mg..btw congrats to both of you on your recent bfps :)

I think this medicine keeps me from sleeping well at night. I have literally developd insomnia. Did any of you ever use it before or after transfer? I have e...

Will my embryos make it to the blastocyst stage?

I have my ET tomorrow. I am freaking out as I had my ER on Wed and was told about the fertilization report on Thurs and then it was the long weekend so I couldn't contact my clinic to know the progress of the embies. I had seven fertilized eggs out of 12 retrieved and 9 mature ones. We are doing ICS...
