Hi Ems, I test this Friday as well...FET for me as well. However, I will only be 9dpFET....mine were blasts, maybe that's the difference. I have had very little in the way of symptoms as well...slight twinge here or there, some short cramps one night. I don't remember having that the first time, tho...

Recovering HPT addict...2ww

Ok, so now that I am a recovering HPT addict, I guess I've taken to compulsive symptom checking.... :shock: Anyone out there had a slight "pulled muscle" feeling in lower abdomen during 2ww? It's not severe at all, but I can feel it in the night when I roll over or when I get up from laying down. Ha...

I'll wait until my test Friday like a sane woman would...

?GHOST: Cheating on my RE...UPDATE

I asked my PCP to do a serum hCG today at my physical...will get the results tomorrow. Do you think this may result in a false negative? 6dp FET blast... Since I'm confessing, I also convinced the lab tech to throw in a urine test along with my urinalysis...negative. I think I may need some psych me...

Jen and Desparado, This is my first IVF as well...my DH and I are 34, TTC for 6 years, just thought it would happen and then found out his sperm count made ICSI our only option. I only had one blast put back, with others frozen (not sure how many yet)...seems like 2 is the norm ET on this site and I...

Hi Desparado, It IS the waiting that's a killer! I know that God is in control and we will accept the results either way, but I am having trouble being patient, which is usually not a problem for me (BLAME THE HORMONES!!) I was actually much better before I became addicted to the dreaded HPT... I te...

I'm with you ladies...my emotions just hit all of a sudden this morning! So far today, fight with my mother-in-law, 1 hour of crying, and a BFN (although, I have concluded if you look at it in certain light, blink twice and squint, you can almost, kind of convince yourself you see a line...) and it'...

I am taking 1cc of the PIO every night, nothing else. The suppositories are tough, I've actually made them before and...
