2ww FET Question Ghost or IVF nurse or anyone?

I know this question has been asked 1000 times, but I had FET, 2 expanded blasts transferred and I am 8dpt. I have my beta on day 11, but I have been getting BFN's on HPTs, not even a glimmer of a line...

Hi Kim, I started a book...actually took a nap today...the next few days, just trying not to work. Last fresh cycle was cancelled due to OHSS, and I'm not convinced the ridiculous work stress I was under didn't contribute... I am on 100mg PIO, just one daily. I can't imagine twice a day!!! The shot ...

Hi Ghost, Thanks for all your words of wisdom... I am in the midst of my 3rd IVF, 5d transfer tomorrow :lol: , on PIO since retrieval.

Hi Everyone, Valerie and Chris, so sorry about your news...you're both in my prayers. Ruby, sounds like you're doing well, but they have you on a quicker plan than my clinic. My stims started last Friday, the 9th, so I am scheduled for ER around the 22nd. Last time I went about 3 days early, so who ...

Ruby: Sorry, just reread your post...that kind of absent mindedness is exactly what I'm talking about!!
Congrats on your follies!!! That's a great number! Did they predict Friday originally or do they think you're going a bit early?
