staying at the Las Vegas Hilton. We had a conference there back in the fall, some from work went and said it was really nice but affordable. I was supposed to go but was in the middle of a cycle. I had already purchased a plane ticket, had to cancel, hence using my credit now. :)

This will be my 2nd trip to Vegas. I went a couple of years ago for a MGMA conference and lucked up with my timing cause Bon Jovi was at Hard Rock so I got tickets for me and my boss. He loved it!

Bunki99,
Your day sounds a lot like mine, I'm still on bedrest so I put a chaise lounge out on the back lawn and read my new book "Eat, Pray, Love" it was so relaxing!
It's nice to meet you, I hope this 2ww goes much faster with this thread, it'll be great to hear about everyone's results as they come in. :)

Hi everybody!
First of all, congratulations to the people with BFP's. That's wonderful!
I am on my 2ww also and right now are 3dpt. Last night I had a vivid dream in which I went in for an ultyrasound and my RE told me that my embryo was implanting and I could see it on the ultrasound. I woke up and had pretty bad period-like cramps on my left side with slight back pain too. Is this normal? I have also had heartburn for the past 2 days and breasts are very slightly sore on the sides. My situation is that I developed 7 mature follicles and when I went in for ER, they told me that I had already ovulated (they believe in the waiting room). They did however manage to retrieve one and it fertilized and was transferred on day 3 as a grade A 8-cell. I think it is such a miracle! Do you think that I have a chance and these may be symptoms? The cramps and back pain are gone now. Does anyone have any thoughts?
Love,
Cori

Bunky - Did the 1st one today and it was -ve. But somehow I have not lost hope this time. I remember the first 2 cycles at the first sign of a -ve HPT i was really depressed somehow this time I was Ok with it. I know that implantation could of happened as late as Friday and hence would not show up yet on a stick. Soooooo will test again in 2 days. LOL Then Beta on Thursday.

Cori - best of luck on getting that BFP.

Jovigal- I rememeber when I was about 17 I went to see Bon Jovi mannnnn those were the days LOL.. OK and it is 12pT? not 12pR? Well either way that still gives me hope Woo Hoo. :wink:


Maryberr - Welcome and good getting to the BFP we all are trying so hard for.

Steph

Hi Jovigal! I see that you are testing tomorrow. I want to wish you tons of luck. I have everything crossed for you! So you already got a faint line on your hpt? :) I had a faint line on my hpt about 3 days before my beta. I am very optimistic for you!

Good luck to everyone with testing. May your dream come true. :)

Mary, I think I will spend today doing to same thing, it's not as warm here today but not too bad, think I will be OK as long as I sit in the sun. I have heard of that book and it's sounds pretty good. How is it so far? I'm ready Maeve Binchy's "Whitehorn Woods". It seems like a nice calming book to read during my 2ww.


Hi Cori, oh my gosh i can't believe you ovulated in the waiting room! You must have been so upset! Well as I have been told it only takes 1 so hopefully that 1 embie does the trick for you. Last time I was pregnant (but miscarried at 9 weeks), I had a dream that I was a the dr. and they saw the baby on ultrasound as well, so it sounds like a good sign to me!!! I am 7dpt and have had some back pain and cramping too. Hopefully it's a good sign for both of us!

Steph, I test the other day and got a -ve as well, I don't know why we torture ourselves with those HPT's, but we do. I'm thinking about doing it Tuesday, as my appt for my blood test is Thursday.

Jovigal, testing tomorrow right? Are you anxious today? What are you doing to keep busy?

Marsxp, I'm in Streamwood, how about you? I see Dr. Karande in Hoffmann Estates, I used to go to FCI but wasn't happy with the way they ran things there, like an assembly line. I like Dr. Karande much better. who do you see? I've been trying to 5 years without a really good explanation as to why I can't get pg. I will keep my fingers crossed for you! I have my pg test on thursday.

im from Oak Forest.... i go to Chicago-IVF in Orland Park... i see Dr. Blankstein and Dr. Brasch.... this is my first IVF ever... they are the best doctors i have met so far.... i had my ER & ET downtown - Rivernorth Same Day Surgery [ontario & wabash i think] i have a bicornuate uterus [heart shaped] and only the left compartment is accessible so that's where they dropped my two embryos last monday.....

it was nice to know that there's someone closer to me that's going through the same thing i am going through.... i have the same sched with one of the ladies in the clinic i go to but we dont talk.. maybe she doesnt know im going thru ivf too but i know coz we're in rivernorth the same days for ER & ET lol.....

i would love to know more about you.... you may IM me at [mlo1230@yahoo] uhhhh... not sure if im allowed to give out email hehehehe [sorry admins!]

Hi All,

Hope the 2ww is treating you well.

Cori - I can't believe you ovulated in the waiting room. It does only take one and your symptoms sound normal to me. I am feeling the same way but i feel I am over analysing every twinge and stabbing pain.

Jovigal- Can't wait to hear your results. The hpt are a great sign. I teach primary kids so the reports seem to take me forever and am sure the parents have no interest or understanding of their grades! Do not love the timing of the reports during my 2ww. Also great to hear the LV Hilton is nice as my husband is off to a work conference and is booked in there. Can you recommend any shopping centres he should go to for all of the gifts he MUST buy me???!!!! Will leave hints for him around the house and in his luggage! Also any places he should visit? He has been on the net searching but there is nothing better than asking someone who has been there before. Thanks in advance.

My 2Lnt- Glad you are still confident. Those HPT can really do your head in. I have resisted them so far but not sure for how long though. Goodluck

Marsxp - Will your husband be able to not tell you? Mine is terrible with secrets as he has this little smirk when he is trying to keep things from me! Do you do 2 bt so they can see the rise in levels? Under normal circumstances they don't do that in my clinic, mind you I am in a country clinic and there isn't much contact!

Hope everyone has a great day. Sorry to those I have missed. Thinking of you all.

marsxp, I don't have a yahoo account to IM you, only an aim account, do you have aim as well? My e-mail though is jessica@m13graphics.com. You can e-mail me anytime. At FCI I had to go downtown to have my retrieval and transfer. I'm so glad Dr. Karande does all of the procedures in Hoffman Estates since it's so close.

congratulations to all those BFP's thats fabulous!!! ive been doing HPT's since the 1st week of ET - i couldnt resist, im mad!! (i reckon i can keep the company in business!) which were all BFN until thursday gone (10dpt) and it was a BFP altho the line was kinda faint... my last HPT was yesterday and it was a beautiful thicker line!! today i had the BT and i could feel bad AF cramps... i had that with my other pregnancy like really bad pains including back pain so thought it was that but im now full on bleeding... the nurse just rang and to have a BFP the preg count needs to be over 100... mine is only at 72 so theyve deemed it inconclusive and need to go back on friday... she explained it could either be that the embryo embedded but thats as far as it got or its an ectopic... i now have full on AF so i presume im losing it... its sooo hard to swallow.. literally... anyway, we WILL ALL get our BFP's if not now then soon, i know it!!!
luv d

OK so I POAS yesterday and it was -ve. But went to the store and bought FRED and POAS this morning came running out to ask DH if I was nuts or if there really was a faint line and he was gone. The one day he left a few mins early DAMN so I dragged 15yo. outta bed ha ha she was blinded as I made her come in the kitchen to confirm that real faint 2nd line!!!!!!! SHE SAW IT TO!!!! Sooooooo WOOOOO HOOOOOOO. God I hope the stick is right.... OMG.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!!!
