Re: MTHFR and FET

I have both endo and MTHFR as well as another clotting issue. I was on Lovenox throughout my pregnancy. I would still only recommend 2 ebryos be transferred. Triplets can cause a lot of complications. The goal is not only to get pregnant but have a healthy pregnancy & deliver healthy babies.

Re: FET- too early to test?

When I did my second FET, I got a very faint positive on day 10. 5dpt is too soon. :)

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

With ectopics, hcg levels tend to be low and do not rise appropriately. They kind of bounce around with small increases, and even some decreases. Yours don't look like that at all. With multiples, levels do tend to be high. However, each person and each pregnancy is different. Your levels are rising...

Re: Beautiful Babies Born in 2011/2012

I think, in general, girls tend to be smaller than boys at birth. However, my first son was always 90 percentile for height and 75 percentile for weight. Yet, my younger son always measured smaller. Even now, he stays at or below 50 percentile for weight and 40 percentile for height. It just depends...

Re: subchorionic hematoma

I had a SCH with my first son. It stopped bleeding at around 12-13 weeks gestation. Everything turned out fine. I have read that the earlier in pregnancy the SCH, the better the prognosis. You have every reason to hope it will be fine.

Vicky, I remember you! I totally understand. I had to give up the board when I had my first one too. I had a second beautiful little boy in November. Congrats! :D

Re: HELP - I have tested BFN with a 5dt 6dp

6dp5dt is way too early to test. I wouldn't test until 10dp. I got a very faint positive on day 10.

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Sorry, crashing guys. I do like to keep up with you all though. Lyd, those numbers are very good. It is not a guarantee but probably as close as you will get with amnio. (Even amnio is not 100%.) Although, you should still discuss it with your ob, of course. I had a 1/11 chance of a chromosomal abno...

Re: Fresh embryo transfer...what does "fresh" mean?

No an embryo does not need to be frozen. The odds of pregnancy are actually higher with a fresh embryo.

Re: close to end of line

Personally, I would try with the two remaining embies, and make a decision if that didn't work out. I only had two embies left when I tried for my second and I now have a second beautiful son. Good luck.

Re: ghost/ladies ... 5w5d ultrasound

They are probably using the measurements to calculate. That is the way my RE did it. They calculated the due date by the measurements not the "age" of the embryo. It could be a late implanter or their equipment may not be absolutely accurate. I wouldn't worry about it....I know easier said than done...

Re: ghost/ladies ... 5w5d ultrasound

My second son measured a little behind at 7 wks and something. My RE said +/- 3 days was fine. I would be competely fine with those measurements. As you can see from the two different measurements, it's not an exact science.
