Postby kate06 » Mon Sep 18, 2006 8:04 pm

Hi everybody

I am new here.Please anyone tell me what BFP and DH stand for

I am in my 2 week wait after FET .I will do my test on 23rd Sept Saturday
This my 1st IVF ,it is a male factor ( my husband had a failed vasectomy reversal so IVF + ICSI was the only option ) I am 34 and fertile after egg retrival I had moderate OHSS ,ET cancelled and stayed in the hospital for 4 days.Now I had an natural cycle FET ,feeling OK,no symptoms only mild cramps like PMS.

I am very nervous as I have nobody here ,recently been made redundant .It is quite stressfull to stay home all day .

Good luck to everyone

Hi Kate


BFP = Big Fat Positive

DH = Dear husband

If you go to the General message board you will fine a thread for abbreviations. I cut and paisted a copy to my desk top so I can refer to it as I'm reading along.

I will say a prayer for you to get a BFP on the 28th!

Me 35 - DH 32
3 cycles of clomid
3 cycles stims w/ TI
1st IVF - Sep 06 BFP

Hi Lisa / Patie

Thanks for your replies..as I was feeling all alone your messages made my day. I am not working at the moment a couple of months ago I have been made redundant....But everything happens for a reason .I wouldn't able to relax at home during 2ww if I was working full time.

Lisa good luck to you with your transfer I hope everything went well with your retrieval got lots of eggs....

keep me update...

lots of love

Hi Kate,

if you ever want to talk... I'm also in Liverpool! Unfortunately I've also lost my job back in June 2006 (shortly followed by a BFN in July) but am going through another IVF/ICSI cycle at the moment. I will have my first stimms scan on Thursday.:roll:

Like I said - if you ever want to talk - let me know! We could arrange to meet for a coffee etc etc

Lot of love and good luck for the 2WW! :D

This my 1st IVF (husband had a failed vasectomy reversal so IVF + ICSI is our only option). Yesterday they spotted 7 folicals and said everything is right on track. I tried to read as much as I could before I started all of this, but I'm not sure what to expect next. How many folicals do they like to see before egg retrieval?

failed vas reversal, 1st time IVFer - will be doing ICSI

Hi Katie

If they said everthing is OK nothing to worry about.I had 10 follicals and ended up having 19 eggs during egg retrieval and left me really ill , we had to cancel ET back in May this year.Everybody responds differently to the drugs. It doesn't mean you will have the same problems .But I am ok now .Waited another 2 months to do natural cycle FET.I could have done earlier using drugs to stimulate but I prefered without any medication.So after having 2 normal period I checked my LH surge level and after 3 days 2 frozen embroyes transferred.It was a quite simple proceedure.I am in my 2ww at the moment ,testing on 23rd Sept. and hoping BFP :))

If it doesn't work I still have 5 more frozen embryos.I will use them in another natural cycle FET .I am quite positive.I will feel very upset if I find out BFN on saturday but I will carry on living my life normally because at end of the day I have a great relationship with my husband and he is a BFP in my life .....

Hope everything goes well for you ,don't panic and keep yourself busy...

Lots of love

Kate xxx
