Congratulations ItsGottaWork! That is fantastic! Yes...definitely celebrate this weekend :)

I just had my third and final beta and my numbers were 698...now I will just hold my breath until I see that little heartbeat on the ultrasound. I go on April 3rd.

Hang in there ladies!

Kbat, not sure how much it had to do with my BFP, but I also used Chinese herbs prior to this cycle in conjunction with acupuncture. I figured it couldn't hurt, right?! My cousin is having fertility issues and she has been seeing a reflexologist and a chiropractor (does some sort of cold laser treat...

INdie, I am so sorry to hear that your numbers didn't increase. It is for that very reason that I am still on pins and needles after my BFP. When it's so early you just never know. I will certainly keep you in my prayers and hope that you and DH find comfort in each other. Kimbers, second time was a...

How is everyone doing? It's very quiet on here...

Had my second beta today and it was 365. Is that good? The nurse said it was, but I never know...

ItsGottaWork, that is so promising! When is your Beta?

Best of luck today, Kimbers!

I had my second Beta today and it was 365. I don't remember...is that good? The nurse said it was good, but I always second guess everything in this process :?

Hi ladies :) We are all thinking of you Mel :) As for me...celebrating? Not yet. I am sure you all remember how nerve wracking this early part is. I had my second beta today which was 365. I know the numbers are good, but I will be holding my breath until I see that little heartbeat on the ultrasoun...

Melo, I was 98% sure last night that it didn't work. Just goes to show you what I know! Still feels like AF will be hear any minute. Keep your spirits up. I didn't have a great cycle either...I had 8 eggs retrieved and only 2 fertilized, the day of transfer(3dt) they were both only 4 cells and they ...

Haven't heard from any of you in a while, but I just wanted to let you know that I tested today and got BFP! I can hardly believe it? Are any of you still on this thread?

I just posted on the 2ww thread, but I wanted to let you ladies know my results since you have all been so wonderful. I got the call this afternoon and I got a BFP!! :D :D I can hardly believe it. I guess 4 cell embryos on a 3dt aren't so bad after all. Guess it just wanted to be in me instead of th...

Ali, it's great that your endo isn't severe, you should have a lot of good luck, then :) Well ladies, I got the call today and I... Got a BFP! :D :D :D I can hardly believe it as I didn't have great odds with only 2 4 cell embryos for a 3dt. I guess I have a little fighter. My HCG was at 165 today a...

I haven't done any research myself, but my acupuncturist actually told me to stop the herbs as soon as I started my IVF meds. Not sure if that helps much as it seems to conflict wtih what your acu said, but it's just a thought.

Hi, Ali :) Hang in there. this 2ww thing will drive you batty. As a fellow endo gal I know all of those twinges and cramps are hard to read. I was just wondering...have you ever had a lapyroscopy to remove some of the endometriosis? I am considering doing this before my next round (which hopefully I...

Kate, I am so sorry to hear your news. So many clinics including mine do not do this testing on the embryos and it makes me wonder how many of the BFNs are due to this. I am so amazed that the embryologists thought they looked great and then to find this. Just goes to show you there is so much that ...

I haven't POASed! From my experience it just drives me crazier! However, I have been checking my basal temperature, which is why I asked if anyone knew if it was relevant or if the progesterone messes that up.

Anyone have any thoughts?
