kate - I too was researching like crazy on the internet and was terrified that my number meant something was wrong. I read somewhere that a molar will show way high numbers like over 10000 or something. Don't be too worried...sounds more like multiples to me! LadyJ - I've been on, just not much to r...

Wow - what is it with the power outages? tburks - I'd say CONGRATS! From what I've read a line is a line where HPT's are concerned. They do not tell you how pregnant you are, just that they are detecting HCG. So is your BETA Friday? That's when I go in for first u/s! Good luck girl! kate - WOW, what...

wednesday - Welcome and congrats!! I think my only worry with bowling would be if you twisted wrong. But, I think they say to watch for that only later in a pregnancy. I'm sure you're fine! I too have been having cramps and pains off and on. This was also our first IVF and it's my first pregnancy :s...

CONGRATULATIONS MOLLY!! I too was shell shocked and couldn't think and then thought of things later. My nurse transferred me over right away to schedule the first u/s. Our plan includes just one from my clinic and she said they do it 1 1/2 weeks from BETA. At that time they'll check my progesterone ...

That sucks...still taking shots :( But, look at it this way, one step closer to holding on your precious cargo. I understand how you feel, my husband hasn't completely celebrated or told any of his friends or family yet. He wants to wait until the 8-10 week range as well. Ok, time for some TMI becau...

DNT - Awwwww, you're so lucky you got to hear the HB! Did you cry? I was told I wouldn't be able to hear it until 1 1/2 weeks after my first u/s which is the 20th. This wait is so much longer than the BETA wait! And I'm so jealous if you get to stop PIO, so tired of those dang shots! My bbs are more...

DNT - I would go with your heart on the book. I think I'm getting that book as well for DH for Valentine's. I feel in my heart that we're in a good spot. If something goes wrong, it was going to go wrong whether I give him a book or not. So I'm about a week behind you guys! Is this a first pg for ei...

Mine was 7dp3dt, but very faint, had to squint to see it. Had my BETA one week later and it was 893. A line is a line!

You know tburks, I felt crappy that weekend, then I felt fine. Everytime I ate, I bloated big time and I was crampy off and on. It was so up and down! Don't look too much into symptoms, I've read that ALOT of people have no symptoms whatsoever! :roll:

Hey DNT0809, haven't seen you around much on the Jan-March board. I thought I'd check out this board today. I too am due in October. We just got our BFP Friday so I don't even have my first u/s until the 20th of this month...another TWW. I almost know exactly how you feel except for the mc, haven't ...

First off, kimbob , BITE YOUR TONGUE…LOL I think twins would be totally cool, but quads…I don’t think I could handle it emotionally, physically or monetarily…I'm a lowly govt worker and DH is a firefighter remember? I’ve heard of the nasal spray but it wasn’t an option for me. How’s that going? to_h...

Don't worry about not hurting, be grateful! I still will have days that for some reason I hurt on the side I got the shot. And sometimes, nothing. It's normal I guess. As for the swelling...mine came and went up until this last week! I seemed to swell after eatting anything so I thought it was gas. ...

Really high BETA?

We got our BFP :D and now I have some questions! The nurse said my level was really high and they were having to dilute it :?: Has anyone heard of this? When she called back later, she said my level was 893 :shock: , but said that was a fabulous number. My clinic won't test my levels again, and they...

amfmbaby - I'm so sorry for your setback! It's ok to have a pity party, we understand most of all! Hopefully in 2 weeks that stupid cyst will be gone...keep the faith :) CT_Michele - ER with TESE/ICSI was 1/20, we put back 2 on day 3. I never got the actual cell numbers, just that they were over 9 b...

Nurse just called back, my level was high....holy crap...893! She's still sayiing no way to tell until u/s on the 20th if it's multiples or not. But, I'm looking at other's numbers and I'm getting really worried! :shock:
