Steph~

Don't give up hope! We all know people who have had neg HPT's and positive beta's. Sending you all my best and waiting for that BFP tomorrow!!!! I asked my co-ordinator if the HPT's were shoing up negative would that mean no and she said nope. She said some women take longer to produce enough HCG to show up on those sticks. So hold your head up there girly and pray tomorrow is a great day.


My co-ordinator and she moved my test up to monday. She said that odds are that I am preggo cause of what the tests are doing and we'll find out for sure now on the 16th!! Holy crap!

And thanks for all the nice things you ladies say, the support on this board is over-whelming!

Donna - They are truly beautiful. Do they take after you or your dh more? How are you holding up on day 1. I was forbidden from showering and am not happy about that at all :x Do you get to shower? last time I snuck it in on day 2 and still got bfp. We'll see how disciplined I am this time. If there was more research supporting it I would behave more...I think...

For now it's laying in bed wiht my 4 legged boys and there aroma d'hound. I think I'll get reall exciting nand move to the couch soon. Need to spread out the exciting activities so not to use them all up at once!!!

Daly, I took a shower! Just not really hot water. I went to work today. My DR said it was fine to go back to work. I sit at a desk all day. Have any of you had any cramping the day after ET? My cramping still hasn't gone away! Did any of you feel implantation cramps or spotting? I know that implantation is too soon for me right now! Does it make a difference that I have had 4 pregnancies before? I mean as far as my uterus and body accepting embryo's????

Day 1 is going good. I keep looking at the picture of my babies!!

Please Dear God Let us have a BFP in 13 days!

I really pray this works the first time!

Talk to you all later!!!

Donna :D :D :D :D :D

Hi girls, I'm still holding out hope, but it's not looking good for me. I have plenty of eggs in my right ovary, but not too many in my left. I had 4 yesterday, and now there's 5, but they are not mature enough yet. Only 1 is. I thought maybe she would stim me longer to try and get those up to par, but she said going past day 12 really lessens your chances for pregnanacy, as the lining gets too thick. So, if they can't get to my right one, I may only end up with one egg. That's scary. What if it doesn't fertilize, etc... Then it's over for me. I'm really stressed. I cried all the way home. :-( I go back tomorrow am at 7, and she'll probably tell me to trigger either tomorrow night or Sunday. ER will be either Monday or Tuesay. I guess my age is really making a difference. I had more eggs just 6 months ago. UGH!

Hi,
I have started my stims yesterday and I have noticed that they give me bad headache, I mean really bad. I am on 225 follistim and dex tablet, has anyone else experienced bad headaches during stimulation?
Jes Jes congrats! I live in Seattle too , actually I live in Kirkland, which clinic are going to ?
Best wishes to all!!!

Donna - Every RE I've gone to and IVF buddies I've had in LA have such strict bedrest rules. UGH!! I know some REs are letting you head back to work after 12 h, but not mine. I think I'll sneak in a shower tomorrow.
As far as the uterine cramping goes. I've been geting weird sharp twiges around my uterus too. It happens more when I stand up. But, I think its a good sign, because I had them with my bfp, and I felt absolutley nothing with the bfn. I figure it is a sign of uterine adapting to embies. Just take it easy even though you're at work doesn't mean you shouldn't be spoiled :D Were getting our bfps soon. :D :D :D

Vlada - I used to live in Kirkland. It's such a cute little city. Feels almost likek a Village. I loved the Pancake House and we have a few down here in LA too. I could go for some now! I'm so sorry about your headaches. OUCH. I used cold packs on my head. Do you ever get headaches with your period? I wonder if it is an estrogen effect. i know progesteron can really cause bad ones, but that isn;t until later in your cycle. WHat usually helps them in the past?

BWHD - I'm so sorry to hear your news. Are they sure they can't reach your r ovary? What about another route like Charlie mentioned? Never feel bad about asking your RE about alternatives. They may not have experience wiht an abdominal rather than vaginal route, but know anoher who does. Still keeping all fingers and toes crossed for you.

Croella - THey'll get htere. They're jsut taking their sweet time. Sending you the folly fairy.

Susan - What are your instructions? My dh won't let me shower after hearing the "rules" from the RE. I have strict bed/couch rest with bathroom privileges. ANy funny feelings in your uterus?

Hi Daly,
Small world huh, I love Kirkland too, it is perfect location, 15 min form Seattle and at the same time you can have your privacy here, I love the water around it.
My docotr really doesn't want me to have headaches with this meds but i do, I took tylenol, waiting for it to work, so far nothing, I am hoping that may be it is due to the weather change, otherwise I don't know how am I going to handle the stims with headache like that. :(

Hi Vlada,

I live in Issaquah. I go to PNW Fertility in Seattle and have nothing but nice things to say about the place. I bet you go to NCRS in Kirkland? We are new to the area, just moved from Pennsylvania in August. Good luck with everything!!

Vlada - just an idea since you mentioned weather (pollen is really high down here in California) Could it be allergies? I take nasal steroids on and off and have checked with many sources regarding there safety. I actually won't take Claritan given Im a poor responder and it may affect soething somewhere! But the nasal sprays aren't absorbed systemically and can really help. Just an idea. Also, acupuncture could really help too. I'm so sorry you're suffering.
