TarabelTwo - WOO HOO!! Off bedrest! Congrats! It seems like your beta is pretty quick...July 1 is not that far away! Same day as Bell, right? Are you planning to POAS? I imagine I will be as paranoid as you (the pothole thing made me laugh!)...but that's exactly what will make us great moms!

Kate - Congrats on being PUPO!!! Do you know when your beta will be?

To_Have_Fun - I can't believe you had follies growing before stims! I've never heard of that before...Could they be cysts? When are you going back next week...my goodness, you are certainly in my thoughts and prayers. What is your dose with the lupron?

mgpasco - In response to your questions...someone else already mentioned the acupuncture...I am doing acupuncture and I love it. I truly believe it has helped me in a variety of ways. Highly recommended.

I called the doc today to get an update on my embies - I have been dying for a status report!!! I finally got to talk to the embryologist, and she was very vague, but she told me that more than half of my embies are high-grade and that they are right where they should be for day-3. She warned me that normally only 40-50% make it to day 5, but she thought it was looking good right now that we would have some great embies to transfer and at least a few to freeze. YAY! I won't hear anything more until Saturday when I go in for ET...the waiting is already killing me. Ugh!

Hi Babyloves,

Good luck with your mock transfer tomorrow, it's great you're getting closer to getting the ball rolling.
As for BCPs, you don't have to do them with every cycle. My RE likes to do them, but we had time issues with my insurance, so wanted to get as many cycles as poss in before July 1st - I am on number 2 now, after number one, once AF came we started stims right away on day 4. My two egg retrieval days are only about 4 weeks apart :shock:
It is hard doing a back to back, but I know I'm grateful not to have had to wait so long after a BFN to try again. This ones the ticket!!

Hi Jude - I thought you always had to have one proper AF after a BFN - or is that just in UK - I know some US protocol is very different?

Hey All

I am on 5dp3t and I am convinced that these symptoms can be so misleading. With the progesterone support our aspirations are build up tremendously, as the side effects of progesterone are same as first signs of pregnancy. I just pray that it happens for me this time as for everyone around here.

Hope everyone else is doing fine and copin up well with the pressures of 2ww.

Anyone doing something interesting?

Carolyn...wats up , buddy? did you POAS. I have decided against it. as usual, I like surprises...:D

Ok Ladies

I woke up this morning and was spotting. I have had any spotting since my ER and that was from the procedure. This looks like AF spotting. My RE isn't open yet and I can't get ahold my DH.

Freaking out a little.

Tarabeltwo: I will pray for you it is not, when is your AF due? Keep us posted.

Sonu: I am right there with you. 6dp3dt I just want a sign some sign it is very nerve racking.

Wishfull: No POAS for me my DH and I agreed, yet still too early Beta is on Monday though.

AdsGirl: Awsome news on the embies. I had two to freeze at 3 day and three that were slow to develop so they waited until blast and 2 made it so we have 4 freezepops! Good Luck with transfer, when is it?

Kate: 4 wow your odds look good, one almost blast!!

Bella: how are you?

Bell: I am freaking out too, are you going to POAS?

Well I am feeling so much better yesterday and today, since the removed the fluid. I went in yesterday for an u/s and b/w and they said that some of the fluid has come back. They told me that if I am pg that it would happen that way because of the hormones. So at my appointment yesterday the replacement RE, mine is out of town, told me because I was like I just want to know if there is a pregnancy there, said "oh its there, this wouldn't be happening to you if it wasn't." I know it is his job and he has been doing this for 30 some years but I just cannot believe him until I get though beautiful beta numbers! He did do a beta yesterday but when the nurse called she did not say anything about it so I am sure there must have been nothing there. Oh I am driving myself crazy, now that I feel better this is all I think about. Well I guess Monday needs to get here faster. Take care all and thanks so much for all the wonderul support!!

Love, Luck and Baby Dust!

to_have_fun08 - Wow, that is weird to have follies grow on lupron. I'll be praying your numbers go down.

kate65- Glad the transfer went well. How is bed rest going for you? It drove me crazy which kinda surprised me. I thought I would enjoy it. When is your beta?

wishfull27 - I have caved and started POAS every morning. I know it is too early yet as I am only 5dp3dt but I can't help myself. I bought a pack of 25 tests so I figure I should use them all. :wink:

sonu911 - I try not to look at any side effects because of the progesterone. My boobs started hurting before we even transfered!! So I know not to look in to anything.

Tarabeltwo
- my embryologist said that spotting is completely normal. The progesterone can make your cervix soft and you can spot some. So I wouldn't look to much into it. He also said it is normal not to spot.:roll: This 2ww is crazy!!

jcurlygirl
- Glad you are feeling better. Hope you get great results on Monday!!

Turtles - 25 HPTs?? That's hysterical. I love it. Can't wait for you to post about your first faint line!!

JCurlyGirl - So glad you are feeling better! What a relief! When is your beta?? Fingers crossed for you!!

DH and I decided to transfer 2 embies tomorrow. We originally planned on transferring 3, but before ER, we started questioning it and have been really wavering ever since. In my heart, I knew we should only transfer 2. Things have been going really well so far, we had a great Fert Report, it's our first IVF and I'm still pretty young. We're pretty confident that with two 5-day blasts, we'll be able to achieve a BFP. Can't believe I'll be PUPO tomorrow! Oh my goodness!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Any betas today or over the weekend????

hi everyone,

sorry I have been MIA! Thank you for all the support and wondering how I am doing ;) I had ER on Wednesday and it went pretty good . I got 18 eggs! I got a call yesterday and 4 eggs were damaged and 15 had icsi done. Out of the 15, 6 fertilized. :) Today I got a call that 5 out of te 6 are 4 cells today with the 6th much slower. the nurse said it could still catch up, but right now the 5 look good. Is 4 cells 2 days after er good? I am scheduled for et tomorrow just in case they want to move forward. I got the impression that if they keep growing they will wait til 5 day, if they slow down, they want to get them back in in case they may not make it to day 5 . i will get a call at 6 a.m. telling me to stay home or not :) I am so scared and excited!!!! I can't beleive we made it to this point and we could be pregnant in a day or two ! As for how I am feeling, I am ok. I am definitely sore, feel much better then the day I got back from er. the pain has kinda of moved upward though towards my upper stomach not lower abdomen??? seems high but the nurse said it is normal for a couple of days to be tender. Still hurts to cough or laugh i hope this subsides soon???? anyone else feel this way? I didn't go to work yesterday or today, wasn't sure I could make it all day. Like all of you, taking it easy,but it is driving me crazy! i am also drinking tons of gatorade!

Pretty soon ladies, everyone is so close and I cant wait to hear all the BFP's!!!!!

sonu, tara, wishful, jcurly, kate - i know the wait is hard, but hang in there! Tara, how is the spotting? Kate, how are you feeling? jcurly glad to hear your ohss has subsided a bit! i am hoping i don't develop it ....

everyone new - welcome and I promise next post i will write more. I just got really tired and sore.....take care everyone and i am thinking of all of you!!!!!

Bella - Sorry to hear you are still feeling sore...I felt sore for a couple of days also, but by 3 days after ER, back to normal. It's so exciting that you may have your embies back tomorrow!! Glad to hear your 6 are growing...you get way more info from your lab than I do from mine. I have no idea how many of my 12 that fertilized how many are still alive and kickin...I'll find out tomorrow when I go in for ET. Good luck tomorrow! If you end up waiting for a 5dt, hope the waiting isn't as much torture for you as it has been for me!! Good luck!!

Hello Ladies....

Can i join your post. I started IVF on Tuesday 24th. 4 days into injections and things are getting better. I'm having some acupuncture which seems to be helping and relaxing me.

Adsgirl- what can I say, I found a great deal on amazon. The 25 tests were only $15 including shipping!! :D

Bella123 - Glad ER went well and you got a lot of eggs to work with. 4 cell on day 2 is right on target. I was pretty sore the first day after, but o.k. after that. I hope you feel better soon. Good luck for transfer!!

bear
- Glad injections are going good. What meds are you on? I was on Gonal-f, lupron and cetrotide. Good luck on your first scan !!

Was a little shocked that i started IVF and injections straight away....having spoken to friends i thought i was going to be given a bottle to sniff for a few weeks but i was put straight on injections.
I'm 37yrs old and have reserved egg supply
I'm on puregon FSH (Pen)
Menogon...Menotrophin (gonadotrophin) injection
Orgalutran ...ganirelix

It's all a foreign language to me...everyone seems to be on gonal F..is anyone else on what i'm on???

Lovely to hear what stages everyone is at....

Thinking of you all xx
