marsxp - I believe implantation occurs like 2 - 10 days after ET. My nurse told me it would occur within 6 after my 3 day transfer. Yes, I get those pains too. It could be implantation and sometimes I think it could be our ovaries recovering for the trauma and the remaining eggs releasing but I'm not expert. To me, it's always a positive sign.

Me too. Having cramps like AF is coming. Doctor says to do home test today and also go in for Beta test. I have not bought home test because I am afraid that it will come back BFN. I need to get myself to buy one of those ungly sticks. Karia, are you on progesterone? if so, have you been having any side affects from that?

Congratulations Emma, what an inspiration-I have a couple more hours to wait until my BETA test results are in and the coordinator calls me-you have given me some much needed hope.

The nurse who drew my blood this morning asked how I feel. I said I try not to feel excited or negative about it. Meaning I try not to feel. You ladies know what I'm talking about.

Ali, I'm sorry. Are you going to try again soon or take a little break? On my first IVF try I had a chemical preg. But I wanted to do an FET right away to give it another try. I don't know what I would do this time if I get a BFN. I think a mini break from everything would be a good idea-but we will see in a couple of hours.

Prayers to all.

Welcome to all the new 2 week waiters. Stay busy girls.

Waiting, any news yet?

I chilled to death yesterday and stayed in bed most of the day. I do that when I get tired sometimes....maybe a good sign?

As you may remember, I took my 'control' hpt the other day and it was neg which I was hoping for. At least I know the trigger shot is gone. I did another hpt this morning (6dp3dt), I know it's way too early but I like being in control of it. :wink: Nothing showed up in the time frame on the instructions, but later I held it to the light and thought I might have seen something, just barely maybe. I know they say that evaporation lines will appear sometimes so that may be what it is. DH looked at it too and thought he saw it too. I've got 3 test left ( :D ) so I'll probably test again Friday or Saturday. I guess if that "evaporation" line gets any darker, I might hold some hope......

So, how are you gals doing today? Any new symptoms to report?

Hiya
Waiting - we are going to see the specialist next week as he wants to talk to us and check me over, again. I need to write down a list of questions this time as I always seem to forget once I'm in there. I notice from everyone elses' posts that you all know how many cells and quality the little embies are etc - they didn't tell me anything like that except that they put the best 2 back and then 2 made it through to being frozen. Sorry to be so naive but how many cells should the embies be when they are tfrd? Also I guess there is a risk of them not making it through the thaw too? Really really hope all went well for you today and you have a BFP for us!
Jovigal - you are so right in what you say about remembering how lucky we are, the IVF demon sits on one shoulder and sometimes gets the better of us! Good luck with the next HPT tomorrow - keeping everything crossed for you.
Good luck to everyone else on this thread - keep up the PMA and try and take it easy.
Love Ali xx

I am dumbstruck. I got a congratulations BFP call yesterday following 2 ww after my first FET.

I don't know the quality of the frozen embies, but they were not as good as the fresh.

I thought for sure this wouldn't happen. I am not out of the woods, but my beta numbers did double.

I am walking around like a zombie. My first IVF Fresh was a chemical which is a nice way to say the emby stuck but miscarried. So I thought that woudl happen again. I have never ever been pregnant-so this is such a miracle. I thought I would have to use all 3 of the cycles I paid for.

Keep the faith everyone-if this can happen to me-it will happen for you too.

After my miscarriage I asked to have a lab prescription for a blood clotting panel. Inately I thought I had blood clotting issues as when I give blood or had blood draws my blood was slow to come.

I tested positive for one of the blood clotting mutations, however it was a common one. Since the last preg they upped my prog and estrogen injections and prog supp, and put me on one 81mg baby aspirin.

The above is for you Sunseeker (as a question to ask, if you have not already done so). The only other thing is I gained wait. They told me embies like a little fat so I basically went from a size 6 to an almost 10, guess it was true.

Jovigal-good luck-take it easy and stay positive. Remind me what number attempt this is and if fresh or frozen. I didn't do any pregnancy tests this time. I did last time and it was negative-made me too disappointed.

I send baby dust and prayers to all of you always.

YEAH WAITING!!! SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!!

Waiting, you asked about my attemps....I did 3 IUI's, then a cancelled IVF cycle (prior to starting) due to a cyst, IVF/ICSI in Dec and got BFP but m/c so this is my 2nd and last IVF/ICSI. I'm a very poor responder but as long as I could get an egg out of the deal, I was happy! :)

Waiting - Congratulations!!! Such fantastic news. Bet you and your DH can't wipe the smiles off your faces!


Me - Am feeling all types of twinges and stabbbing pains as well as the feeling that I have pulled a muscle (which is not remotely possible as have been lazy and doing nothing except hoping this one/two stick) This week has flown by but am sure next week will drag. Not looking forward to it

Jovigal - you are right we do forget how lucky we are. We dwell so much on this process and how it mucks up our bodies and yet we should be grateful that we do have this as an option. Which I know is REALLY hard to do! :lol:

Anyone doing something exciting over the weekend? I have 27 reports to write :twisted: - can hardly contain my excitement! Too much fun! :?

Tenny - 27 reports???? YIKES! I freak at one. :) Is this for college? Well, I hope you don't spend the whole weekend writing. Get out and get some fresh air and relax as much as possible.

Well, I only have 2 more days left of my 2ww. I started POAS about 4 days a ago. I'm a control freak so I want to know as soon as possible. I know it's too early (today is 8dp3dt) but I thought I saw at least a shadow this am that is alittle darker than yesterday's shadow. :lol: I'm loosing it I know, it's the hormones... but anyways, I'll probably test again tomorrow and Monday morning before I go in to the clinic for my beta. I want to know before they do... :wink:

Anyone else getting cramps and running to the bathroom due to the PIO shots? They're killing me. I think I've lost a few pounds the past few days but that's ok. :)

So, who's testing next?
