Hello,
I test on April 26th. 7 AM!!!

Sher Don't give up! Those may be baby growing pains!

I have 4 kids naturally from a previous marriage. Every time I got pregnant I cramped, even spotted....and then the spotting went away, POAS a week later and boom, Prego!!
Stay Stong!
Rebacca- Sorry to hear about your situation. My prayers are with you!

How is everyone else doing?

I want to post a picture....is there a way to do it?
Thanks,

Donna

Got a Quick Question. I had the ET yeaterday at 1:30 I have felt fine since. Now for the past 1/2 hour I have had lower back ache pains. The pains I usually get when I get AF. How soon is implantation?
does this mean my body is rejecting my embies? HELP!!!!


Thanks,
Donna

Jes - You do not want to be in Pgh right now. It was practically snowing this a.m. No sunshine all week.
Sher~ I think you forget that I live in the rainy city of Seattle. It rains EVERY DAY from November to June! UGH And we never see the sun either - ugh! 4 more years then we are back home!

Donna~ I was tole that implantation will happen by the next evening. So if you had ET yeaserday then by tonight it will of happened. So yes it could be the implantation you are feeling. Are you on the Vivelle patches to keep AF from coming? I am and was told that I would not get any AF cramping since the patches keep all that away.

Well, I POAS this morning again, actually 2 different kinds. I am an addict and will keep doing it until beta. Anyhow, my faint line yesterday is way darker today, it is easily seen. The digital one says the word pregnant on it so I think things are looking good but no excitement until blood test Tuesday. It looks like since it was darker that my levels are going up so it must not be positive from the trigger right?

How is everone else doing today?
Jessica

Good afternoon ladies!

Daly - where are you honey? Really hope you are just resting up after ET!

Donna - implantation I think is about day 6 or 7 after EC. Please TRY not to read too much into any symptoms you get - your body is not to be trusted at the moment!

jesjes and steph - I know you are going crazy - but it is not long now. Your exchange in converstaion is the very reason why I didn't poas before test date - they never really give you a clear answer and cause more stress. Please stay positive! I wish you both HUGE GREAT BFP's!!!!!!!

marsxp - I registered on your forum - I will post later! Maybe in the vent bit - I feel like I need a rant!!!!

Rebecca - I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you. I am so sorry. I wish there was something that could be done. Life is so unfair!

Sher8 - not long now honey till your BFP, hang in their and stay positive!

Susan - my AF arrived today and is being her usual evil self! :evil:
What a bummer you have to wait till your doc gets back for results - how rude! It's great that you have some nice frosties for brothers and sisters later on, I hope you get more - an FET is much easier than a full fresh cycle! Not that you will need them for a few years! :wink: It's funny to think that children born years apart were conceived on the same day! Rest up - you are officially PUPO!

BWHD - I was reading somewhere that you can have egg collection going through the uterus wall - would that make it easier to get to your right ovary?

Croella - you will be triggering soon! Good luck with scan!

Mely - how did EC go?

N77 and Hopeful Good luck with transfer - I hope those embies are dividing nicely!

Hugs to all

I feel I've been gone an eternity. We had no power when I got home yesterday from transfer due to very high winds. Even the garage door had blown open. Finally have power again and couldn't log in. My goodness it has been tough getting back to my buddies!

Firsst of all - Rebecca my dear buddy. I was heart broken to read your post There are no words, but we are absolutely here for you.

Donna & Susan - Transfer buddies - You both did great! Congratulations! It sounds like you have beautiful chi;dren. Lets just say mine are in an "awkward growth spurt" and didn't get the high marks, but we love them all. Susan, I will personally give your RE a big kick in the @$#**! Making you wait 2 days! UGH! I'd go out of my skin. ofcourse, I'm a full on pee stick addict and would be peeing like a race horse by then :shock:
STICKY STICKY STICKY

Jessica - OK, I'm just going to say it - YOU ARE PREGNANT!!!! That's how all my pee sticks behaved with my BFPs. I'm feeling a twin vibe, but won't say anymore....CONGRATULATIONS :D :D :D

Stephanie - It can take several days for a BFP pee stick. It doesn't mean neg. I knwo people who didn't get a positive even with a positive blood test Some of us have dilute urine and others have later implantation. Do not lose the faith. You are testing early and the pee stick are built to error on the side of false negatives instead of false positive, (which are very rare if ever - excluding ofcourse trigger shots) Keep rubbing that tummy. :D

Lisa - My ovaries were lop sided also! Congrats on your quadruplets!!! Hope you are getting spoiled. When do you POAS...er... blood test?

BWHD - Hope those blood vessels behave. There is so much shifting, I'd be surprised if they can't get to those eggs. Wishing you tons of luck!

Geckogirl - Here's to a fabulous stim cycle for you! Where abouts do you live in California?

Sher8 - You're getting so close to your BFP. Keeping all fingers and toes crossed

Charlie - How are you doing? If I recall you had some newly pregnant peopel in your family . That's one of the toughest situations for me. Especially when it's their 2nd or 3rd. I don't wish them any ill will. Just don't want to see it or hear it...does that sound mean? BTW I love that expression. 'up the duff" My dh will get a kick out of that. You brits have such a fabulous way with words.

Croella - EC is around the corner!

I know I'm missing a ton of people, but swore I'd limit my computer time while on bed rest. (I would love a shower - but that is forbidden) And anyone who can, have a nice double shot of something for me eh? I'm not a drinker either, but boy, this can bring someone to drink!!

Ok, We transfered all 6 embies, yes I am now PUPO with sextuplets!!! The quality was a bit sketchy, but one made it to 7 cells with no frag and the rest were less cells with or without fragmentation. So my RE said, we shoudl go for broke. So now my dh has to give me 7 kisses whenever he leaves and he has named them all. We shall see. Keeping all fingers and toes crossed They certainly made a dramatic entrance into our lives as we had the longest power outage I've ever had while in LA. We had to switch laptops to keep some battery power to watch my movie rentals and had the house lit with candles. No internet :( and no heat :shock: I was kindof fun and felt like I was camping.

Love to you all Image

Wow Ladies - one night ff the board and look what happens!

Rebecca - so sorry about the news, and I know DE is a tough step - one which my DH have had to consider as well if this does not work out. I the long run, although it may not help to hear it now, you will make the decision that's right for you. Thinking of you...

JessJess - Congrats!! It looks ike you are on your way. What day did you transfer, number, quality, etc - dish us the stats gal, the stats!!!

Stephanie - stick with it; I read on the Ovusoft board just the other day of a woman who had neg. HPTs and her beta was positive.... You never know until you know....

Daly - WOW - sextupets? You go girl! I'm currently PUPO w/quads, so I keep telling my DH when we hang out "how nice to be just the "6" of us...!!! My Re said the same when we had 4 - just go for it! Why not? Instant family, right??!!!

After ET (on all 4 rounds) I had cramping and felt funky for a few days - my RE said that the uterus, etc is recovering form all the trauma it jus endured and that spotting, cramping and fatigue are normal.

My beta is 4/21 - a week away; and each a.m., I do my counting: "okay, now I'm (11)dp HcG trigger, (9)dp ER and (6)dp3dt... Is it too soon to test?" and then I give myself a stern talking to.... :wink: Gotta love the mental gymnastics!

BWHD - good luck this weekend - when's the ER? Do they go in trans-vaginally or through abdomen with your clinic? I've got fingers crossed for us "old biddies" here on the board!

Sorry to miss others, but checking in regularly from work (since concentration is still a challenge)

Cheers,
lisa
