Oh, Queenie - I am so so sorry to hear about your BFN, but I am so impressed by your attitude and approach. I agree with really does help having this board to get perspective on what you are going through. I think it really helps to hear and see others that have gone through it before and are now getting BFPs. So sad for you that this round didn't work for you, but I'm looking forward to seeing what happens for you on the next cycle. Are you planning to start right away? I can't remember, did you have any frosties?

Thanks for the kind words everyone :)

We did not have any frosties from this cycle, so it will be another fresh cycle...I talked to my RE today and we are going to go see him Wednesday (my birthday!) for a consult/next steps plan and since I got AF today, I could be starting BCP's as early as THIS Friday and getting on the wagon for cycle #2!! Kinda crazy, but DH is as gung-ho as I am on just keeping the momentum and taking another shot...

Queenie - I'm so sorry about your BFN. It sounds like you have a great attitude and are ready to get back in there and try it again. When my first two cycles failed, I got right back in the game as soon as AF arrived.....I didn't want to waste any time. I kept the faith that it would happen in His time and it did! For some of us, one time is all it takes and for others, several times is the charm. Either way, it'll all be worth it in the end. And we'll be right here waiting for the good news when it happens. :wink:

Queenie- I am so sorry things didn't work out. Sounds like you and your DH have a really good attitude. Do have a big glass of wine and maybe a nice long hot bath. It is exciting you get to start again so soon. Whenever I start getting worried my DH says we can always try again. Here's hoping the next time is the one. Good luck!!

queenie77 - I'm so very sorry this cycle didn't work out, but you and DH sound incredibly strong. That is awesome you may get to start another round so quickly! My RE had us wait an entire cycle and it felt like an eternity :) Good luck to you and DH!!

My beta was only 10.3 on 6/20 and 17 on 6/23. Dr says to continue with PIO and everything else. I feel like just stopping everything and just stay in bed with DH. I dont want to go to work or even talk to anyone anymore.

Babygurl: I understand so well what you're going through and it is so hard. I just went through a chemical 5 weeks ago and it is really hard emotionally.
My 1st beta was 30, then 2 days later 63 and it kept going up a little and yet I knew it was not working out. I cried for days...
But then I figured this was a good thing, because I knew I could get pregnant and you have to remember and focus on that !!
You have great chances of it working out perfectly the next time !!
Give yourself time to cry if that's what you need.
I'm just so sorry you are going through this. I hope that, when you feel it's the right time that you will try again and we'll be there to cheer you on !

Dakota- Congrats What a huge number!

Queenie- Sorry this wasn't your cycle. You have a great attitude. That was my DH and my feelings as well. We are starting stims again in 2weeks. I feel more confident about it.

Babygurl- sorry about your numbers. Chemicals aren't fun.

Hope everybody else is doing well!

Queenie- I am SO, SO sorry that it didnt work out. I wish I had great words of wisdom to make it all better, but I dont think tht would make up for it. It is so wonderful that you and DH are going to and able to jump right bak on the band wagon, and move aeah full fast. Thats great. You guys have such great determination, thats awesome. I wish you guys the best on this next cycle and you will get your BFP!!!

Babygurl- I am sorry your #'s are low. Please dont give up. I know it seems hard not too, but you must try. Let your little one (s) feel your PMA. Please let us know how things are going and when your next beta is.

Adsgirl- That is so great that all 14 eggs were mature!!! I am very excited to hear your FR today. DH & I did only 1 egg with conventional and the other 4 were ICSI. Originally the RE said we couldnt choose a number they had to go by a %. SInce we only ended up with 5 and DH was freaking out and so adimant on at least one being done conventional. The embryologest (msp) was in the room when DH had his rant "the only thing I asked for during this whole thing, the one and only thing and your telling me we cant do it". He was panicing. So the Dr said I'll do one for you, is that exceptable and DH said that is all I ask. So they did it. My DH is such a drama queen :roll:

Babyloves, Welcome!! Yes, DH and I both took an antibiotic. I think its mostly standard, but I have found out during this process that alot of clinics do things differently. GL on stims, once you start time flys by!!

Angram, turtles & MzTiaJust a week and less for ya'll and your beta's!!!! Whhhooo. Anyone going to POAS???

So, Dh reminded me last night that he is going on his fishing trip and I will have to do my own PIO shot when he is gone (10 days!!)!!! Oh my!!!

I hope all is well with everyone. 2 more days until next beta!!!

WOW, so much to catch up on.

turtles: How are you feeling? Are you tired of the bed rest yet? I honestly think the 3 days rest was the worst part of my 2ww!! Hang in there, not much longer now!

babygurl: Sorry your betas aren't going well. I can't imagine how that must feel. At least getting the BFN gives closure to a cycle. Just know that we are all here for you.

dakota: I can't imagine having to do the PIO shots myself. Good luck with that!!

Ads: Can't wait to hear your fert report! I am so excited for you after the whole cyst thing tried to slow you down.

queenie: I am so sorry to hear about your BFN. I was kinda the same as you. I had gotten a BFN on a hpt, so I was prepared for it. I get to start again with my next AF around July 3? There are several of us on the Aug/Sept thread that are actually starting a lot sooner. So if you do decide to go ahead, feel free to join us over there. We should end up cycling close together. We have another on that thread that started BCP's last night. Guess the thread should have been July/Aug/Sept!! Hope you join us!

To everyone else, hope you ladies are still doing great. I'm still around checking in on you!!

Hello Ladies

Hope all is well.

Well 3 more days until BETA. I have POAs'd and it has been negative. I do believe it will be negative on BETA day as well. The whole cycle has been a failure if you ask me. I just hope we can start again sooner then later. I know it is still early for the HPT to be positive but I do believe it should be positive tomorrow if it is gonna work. We will see if not I will be trying as soon as I can.

Have a great day

Hang in there MzTia!! I've heard many times where someone does not get a BFP until the morning of the beat.

Prawnster???? You must be having a blast of a time on holiday!!!

Sorry to be so graphic but I'm FREAKING OUT.....I'm spotting dark brown! I've been cramping the last 2 days, to the point I had to take tylenol. Today I'm spotting. Has anyone had this? My ultrasound is tomorrow and I'm so upset right now.
