HELLO 2WW SISTERS:

I hope you are all doing well. I too have all the symptoms everyone is referring to, doesn't it stink that it does not necessarily mean a BFP?

I have not POAS as of yet. I am not going to until Monday. My BETA is Tuesday. Monday will be 14 days post 3 day tranfer, so I am sure if I am pregnant, it will show. I would just rather know before I get the call.

I am feeling positive, though. After my little meltdown the other day, I have been fine. I have handled this 2ww better than the last one, where I cried every day. I have felt different the last few days, just like something is going on, but that is probably the PIO as well. Who knows.

I am out of work early and we are off to Philadelphia for the weekend. I have been tempted to POAS the last couple days, but I want to have fun this weekend, so I figured, if it is negative, wait until Monday to find out.

HUGS GO OUT TO YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so excited! :lol: :arrow: I just took a POAS and got a very faint line! Yippie!!

My HCG isn't until Wed., so I'm sure I'll test every day until then.

Just praying the baby(ies) stick...

Baby dust and hugs to all!

Well Ladies I POAS for the last time before my beta tomorrow and its POSITIVE! I am shaking, I cant believe this is happening! I cried! I am so thrilled that I dont know what to do! I woke DH and my sister up at 5:45 this morning yelling " Its Positive" And called and woke my mom up! I cant wait to hear my beta! And to think of all the torture I put myself through this week becasue of that one HPT! IM PREGNANT, and it will be official tomorrow! I've never been so excited for Monday to come! Thank you all for your support, I dont know if I would have made it without this site! I feel all of your BFPs coming soon!

If I were to write an account of my year plus in infertility I would title it, "Living life by the line". Ugh! I took another POAS this morning and the line was even more faint than my first positive yesterday (if that's possible - ha!) Devastation...

My prayers will continue. And of course, so will my POAS obsession. The saga continues

I can't tell DH because he didn't want me to POAS just due to this exact rollercoaster feeling.

Congrats Neffi! So very excited for you! Yippie!

Congratulations Neffi and Cheryl! :D :D :D

Neffi ~ Can't wait to hear your beta #!! How exciting!

Cheryl ~ A positive is a positive, it doesn't matter how faint the line is! The 2 sticks you used could have been way different in terms of how much hcg they can detect. I have heard that even the same sticks in one box can all have different tolerances for hcg. I wouldn't stress if I were you, that is not good for your bean(s)!!! Let us know what your beta is when you get it!!!!

How is everyone else? I am doing great, I switched from prog suppos to PIO shots and it has stopped my spotting and I feel great. Looking forward to my first ultrasound 2 weeks from Tuesday on 4/15.

I'm so excited about the BFPs on this thread!

Neffi-I left you a message in the other thread...but still, congratulations my dear friend. You deserve to be a mama, and you are on your way there!!!!

Cheryl--dear, like other folks said, a positive is a positive! Congratulations!!! it's easier to get a false negative than a false positive, so relax and enjoy your pregnancy :)

Ok, friends, tomorrow I go in for my beta, I have the feeling that this is my time as well...I'm just so positive! this cycle has been different than my fresh one, and I can feel a BFP coming my way ;)

Lots of sticky baby dust to everyone :!:

Well, we were walking around Philadelphia yesterday and I was having some cramping. I got myself into a funk and we decided to test last night, to just know something. We figured at 13 days past 3 day transfer, we should be able to get some result.

Well,

Image

This isn't my actual test, but my line was that dark. I shook for like an hour. I can't believe this is happening.

I tried again this morning, but I got a bum test, no control line or anything. That was aggrivating, but I keep staring at last night's.

My BETA is tomorrow.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL THOSE TESTING TODAY, I JUST KNOW WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TONS OF BFP'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats KBear! Isn't it wonderful that there are so many BFP!!!

I took another POAS today and it's darker than the 2 previous, so I'm relived. Cannot wait until HCG on Wed.

Look forward to hearing all the results of those testing today. GL to all!

1st BETA: 306.

I called my nurse this morning to tell her about my postive POAS, and she said go up and get your bloodwork right now.

I did, and yay, it has been confirmed. I am officially pregnant. I have to proceed with cautious optimism, due to my age and how early it is, but I have a great feeling.

They wanted a level of 100 or more, so I think it is pretty strong. I have more bloodwork Wed and Fri and ultrasound next week. Plus, I probably will be traveling within the next couple of weeks, but RN says that is fine.

Thanks to all for your support, you are the best! I just love this forum!!

Congrats Kbear! What a great number! How many days is this post transfer?

Oh...I'm and 39, so I surely don't think we're old! The years and trials we have all been through to get to this will only make us better parents. We will cherish these children as they are, miracles!

Good luck on your next beta!

My beta was only 26 !!!!



Well I called back my RE today and asked if they can do my beta again wed. instead of waiting until friday, she said that was fine. I asked her some questions, and she basically told me that most of the time, these situations are chemical pregnancies. I am sooo upset. I was so happy yesterday, not Im devastated. I know there is a chance of the beta going up, but mathematically in my head it doesnt make sense. If I had just gotten a + on my Hpt yesterday, then maybe, but I got one on Tuesday....even if it was only 5 then, it would be 100 by now! This is way worse than my first BFN! I cannot control my sobbing! I am really trying to stay calm until Wed., but how do I do that? Yesterday I was talking about maternity cloths and even went to babies r us, now today its all over! I dont know how much longer I can do this! I feel like I'm just going through the motions of life, but not living! :cry: Please pray that my beta doubles by Wed! :(
