Re: HELP? 1st Beta a 5 on Day 12.5 post 5 Day Transfer

Sorry for the bad news...but my 2nd beta was down to less than one. My clinic said it was an early miscarraige. Back to the drawing board. Thinking I'm going to try 1 more fresh tranfer and then...if that doesn't work go the surrogacy route.

Thank you for your reply. My first hpt faint positive was yesterday on day 11.5 and my blood test hcg beta was a 5 today on day 12.5. Because of July 4th and clinics and labcorp being closed...I must wait until Thursday to do the next blood test. I've been reading on the internet and managed to only...

HELP? 1st Beta a 5 on Day 12.5 post 5 Day Transfer

Hi Ladies, Does anyone know of anyone who got a 5 for their 1st beta? I had my first blood test hcg beta on day 12.5. If so, what happened? On Day 11.5 post 5 day transfer my home pregnancy test finally showed a very faint positive. My clinic thinks this may be late implantation. I know it doesn't s...

Re: Does anyone else feel like this?

I'll ignore the last post...and say...I totally relate to you ladies. To have my own mother tell me that maybe it's not God's will for me to have a baby...WOW. I told her I'd would never believe that. To see all of these people who don't want their kids and then see us who really really really want ...

Re: The end of a long journey xxx

Sara, I love your post. It's all so true... especially love the part about the strength you find in this journey...this experience of being a woman that can't just get drunk and have sex with their mate and have a beautiful child. Even after the iVF shots...that I never thought I could give myself.....

I have a friend who claims that the 2 times his wife did acupuncture after transfer she started bleeding and did not get pregnant. Then they tried not doing it after the transfer and she got pregnant. He swears that I should not do acupuncture after the transfer.... Does anyone have any facts or tho...

Re: How important is a TRILAMINAR (triple line) lining???

Hi Ladies, I recently switched clinics for my 6th transfer..(I'm in the 2WW)...but my old Dr. told me 1. he had done everything he can do for me and that he recommends a surrogate (hello heartbreaking...but was warming up to the idea). 2. he had cancelled 3 of my cycles because the lining was not ge...

Should you have a friend or someone you pay as a surrogate?

I live in a state in the US where paying someone to rent their womb IS legal, yet have a friend who is 32 who volunteered to be our surrogate. I'm not sure if I should have it be more of a business transaction or take the friend up on her most generous and kind offer? This is a very complex situatio...
