Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

Hey all! Sorry it's been so long since I've been on. I've had a busy few weeks with my parents being in town and then getting on the "summer schedule". I have so appreciated all of your kind words, while I have I so deeply sympathized with those that have had hard times and/or frustration in the wai...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

Christy: Congrats on your rockstar Beta levels!!! I agree, it sounds like twins to me ;-) When do you go in for your first U/S? Dawn: I'm doing ok thanks. How're you? When do you sorry in for your U/S again? (Sorry, I forgot). I bet this has been a nice week for you, being able to take a break from ...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

Thank you all for your kind words. I am going in to meet with the RE on Wednesday. She is not "my" RE, but she has done most of my procedures (all but one) thus far, since at my clinic you get whoever's in that day. My DH and I like her a lot better, and I'm hoping that she'll be more receptive to h...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

Hi ladies- Unfortunately, I don't have good news to post :-( My Beta went down today, as I assumed it would. I guess that still doesn't make the news any easier, but I'm trying to keep my head up and think that it'll all be worth it in the end. I'm just so frustrated that after 2 fresh IVF's and 1 F...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

Alisa: Congrats on your Beta doubling!!!!! That's so exciting :P I can totally see how it could be the situation of a vanishing twin that has caused your Betas to be wacky. I had that with my first IVF too. I am confident that your Betas will continue to double, and that you'll see a beautiful, heal...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

Dawn: Congrats on your Beta doubling- that is soooooo exciting!!!! I don't care what that awful RE Nurse told you, but I say that with your levels continuing to go up, it's a great sign :-) Especially when your body is trying to fight off pneumonia!! I got your other message, but for some reason I c...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

I got my Beta back for today, and it was a 48! This was a huge surprise, and now I don't know what to feel/think. I've read many stories, where people with low betas actually have it climb, only to have it eventually fall, but I'm still trying to hold out a little bit of hope for a miracle. I will h...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

Alisa & Dawn: I'm so sorry that you two are in Beta hell, but know that I'm right there with you (although I feel pretty much out of it at this point)! Dawn, keep us posted tomorrow with how your Beta goes. I have a good feeling that you will have doubled :wink: Alisa, I know that waiting until Frid...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

Thank you all for your words of encouragement, but unfortunately my hope has severely dwindled. When I woke up this morning, I was bleeding heavily, and have continued to all day. I took another HPT, and although the second line eventually showed up, it was even fainter than the last one. I called m...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

So I had more bleeding this morning, and I broke down and POAS. I saw a very faint second line!!!! Like I said, it was very faint, but it was there! I am trying not to get my hopes up too much, as I would like the bleeding to subside, and I also need to get my Beta done still. Also, is there any cha...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

Christy: Thank you so much for the relaxation tapes! I will definitely try using them tonight, as I think I'll need it :-/ Alisa: I know that the wait until your next beta must be so tough. I went through the "iffy beta" wait on my first cycle. I am confident though that your little one will catch u...

Re: 2013 IVF Cyclers Join Us HERE!

Hi everyone! I'm new to this site, and I just had a 5-day embryo transfer yesterday. They got 13 eggs at my egg retrieval, 10 were mature, and 9 fertilized. I was pretty disappointed when I went in for my transfer, only to find out that none had made it to blastocysts. They transferred 2 early blast...
