Thanks Karen and Jenice it's fun to finally be in the BFP club... Skylar: CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I know how you feel, I don't think I'll believe it till I see the u/s. How have your beta numbers been in the past? 7 m/c is just awful, I'm so sorry...how far along have you been and did they change your ...

Hi Skylar, Prayers for your test today!!! I have actually had quite a time the last 3 days...ended up going in on Monday due to OHSS, and they did my beta 175!! They just called with my beta today (after having to have 1.5 liters of fluid drained) and its 340. I'm in shock!!! :shock: OHSS is EVIL an...

beta chart anyone for 3dt?

I am 10dp3dt, and have, for now, moderate OHSS (Ghost, you were absolutely right, be careful what you wish for....) I will be getting my beta numbers this afternoon (I've gotten BFP on HPT, so I know there will be something there), which is 2 days earlier than planned, due to my fluid build-up. I ca...

Thanks Skylar...good luck with your beta!!
I have a pretty nasty case of OHSS at the moment, and I'm feeling miserable, can hardly move.
The HPT is evil, no doubt!!

HPT question for u all...

Hi There, I am in my 7th IVF, between fresh and FETs, and I FINALLY saw my first real BFP on a HPT yesterday at 8dp3dt (which seemed early)!!! So exciting, but when I tested again this morning, the line was a bit fainter. Both tests I would classify as "light" lines, stronger than faint, but I would...

Thanks Ghost, and yes, I know I'm crazy...after 7 failed attempts I think ?I would probably cut off my arm at this point if it helped. I have read your previous posts about not needing to trigger with Hcg and I'm not sure why my clinic still does with my history of many follicles, perhaps because my...

2ww crazy question...Ghost or anyone?

Ok, so I think I am officially going bonkers in now my 7th IVF/ICSI 2ww....however, here goes: I am 7dp3dt (I think the official day that you actually start to depart from sanity) and I have a history of mild OHSS with other rounds. 10 days past my trigger was Wed (2 days ago) and yesterday, my bloa...

Hi Ladies, I saw a hematologist for my clotting issue, mutation of the prothrombin gene, and he did not feel my case warranted Lovenox. I am taking baby aspirin. My RE sent me to him, and I didn't get the feeling that he bought into the miscarriage/clotting connection. Perhaps because both of mine w...

Success Stories? 3dt after failed FETs/5dts?

We've now had 3 fresh cycles, all with 5d blast transfers, 3 frozen transfers, and are now in the 2ww from our 4th fresh cycle. 2 embies transferred, RE chose to do 3 day transfer after 2 chemicals and 4 BFNs from frozen and fresh. Any one else had a similar path? Each time, embryos are excellent qu...

Hi Firecat...I am on my 4th fresh cycle, and have just about the same number of follicles, 30-34 with a few random smaller ones. I have had 20-25 eggs retrieved in the past, and this is the most follies I remember having. My second fresh cycle transfer was cancelled due to mild OHSS, so I am a bit c...

Val, I felt compelled to reply to your post, I've been there with the low beta..it hasn't worked for me, but my highest was 41, and my RE said they look for 50, so I think there is definitely hope for you!!! I agree with toobee! It SUCKS to be on the cusp, but remember God has a plan for you and he ...

Hi Kimmy, My protocol would be 2mg Estrogen twice a day, and 100mg PIO once a day. I know the PIO would last an additional 6 weeks after beta, but I'm not sure about the estrogen. Hope that helps... Another BFN this morning :( my original beta would have been tomorrow, but they don't test on Sunday....
