Re: 9dp5dt HPT shows BFN... Need stories

Thank you Babydreamz.... Good luck during your pregnancy. Enjoy every moment. I remember being nervous until the 2nd trimester. I don't think women who have never struggled with fertility know what a blessing it is to be pregnant. I wish there was a magic wand for all of us to get pregnant. Sometime...

Re: 9dp5dt HPT shows BFN... Need stories

Babydreamz.... thank you for thinking of me. This is the first chance I've had to go online. I got a BFN, but it was expected. The worst part of the day was I was suppose to get the call between 11 and 1 pm, and their machine which evaluated the tests broke down. So they had to take it to an outside...

Re: 9dp5dt HPT shows BFN... Need stories

Thank you Angelaezra and Babydreamz! I appreciate your words of encouragement. I have been feeling up and down today, trying to keep my PMA. I know in the end I have been blessed with a DS and keep reminding myself WHATEVER happens, I am blessed with the people I have in my life. I'll keep you girls...

Re: 9dp5dt HPT shows BFN... Need stories

Thank you Karla for you thoughtful reply. I did not do a HPT this morning. My beta is tomorrow and I'm preparing for the worst but hoping for the best. We'll see.... Good luck during your 2WW. This is an emotional roller coaster ride and requires a lot of patience. I have found that during the 2ww t...

9dp5dt HPT shows BFN... Need stories

Hi Ladies, This morning I did an HPT and it was a BFN. It's 9dp5dt and two perfect looking blasts were transferred. I was certain this would work as I have been feeling twinges in my uterus. (Yah, I know it could be the meds.) Does anyone have a similar story and got a BFP later or was yours definit...

Re: Delayed walking

Hi Nancy, Not sure if you need any more feedback, but my son would cruise FOREVER and would only walk while holding our hand for the longest time, too. My theory was that he is very tall and thin and it was more balancing required for him. He did have PT because he was born with contractures at his ...

Re: On the day of egg retrieval

Thank you ladies.

I didn't drive the day of ER and kept activity to a minimum. I did take Valium as I was feeling cramping and that seem to help a lot. Today is the day after and I only felt cramping when I got up from a nap. Been feeling fine since. Thanks again for sharing your experiences!

On the day of egg retrieval

So I have done IVF before and was have a DS. I'm trying again for #2 but have forgotten pretty much everything as far as what's involved with the process. On the day of ER, will I be able to visit a friend later that afternoon if it just involves sitting and visiting?? Or will I be too out of it to ...

Re: Waiting for period... please help!

Thank you ladies. The nurse from my clinic returned my call today and said to wait it out for a week and then call if it doesn't come. It could be from the hormones of the failed IVF that has thrown me off track. I'm feeling better that it's nothing to be alarmed about.

Re: Waiting for period... please help!

Thanks leorira11. Still no AF. Just wasn't sure if it was something more serious. I thought it was coming last night, but nothing happened. I wonder if it has anything to do with progesterone or estradiol shots. Maybe just being on hormones for awhile threw my body out of whack?? I don't know. Again...

Waiting for period... please help!

Hi everyone! Here's my recent situation. I had a failed FET in November and started my period December 5th. Now I'm waiting for my next period to start. My cycles usually are 28 days- give or take a day. However, back in April it was 34 days. I took a pregnancy test yesterday (day 34) hoping it was ...

Re: trying for number two--is it any easier?

@Brit- My RE said 3 days of bed rest and light activity. I had a lot of help from my mom and DH. That was the only way I could do it. However, by the 4th day I was holding him and carrying him up the stairs once or twice a day. My RE said that we also have to live our lives and understood that havin...

Re: trying for number two--is it any easier?

Well I told DH about the HPT and cried. Couldn't hold the sadness in any longer. Now I'm sitting here waiting in the RE office for them to do my bloodwork. I know I'm already blessed with a beautiful DS. Just wish I could provide him with a sibling and add to our family. Life isn't fair. Sorry I'm v...
