Well, I took another cheap test and got a faint line so I went to the store and bought an EPT and a First response digital. Both were positive!! :D:D I like the digital as it says yes and you don't have to try to interpret the line. I have a few more tests I will probably take in the morning.
I'm crashin! YEAHHHHHH Turtle!!! Way to go, that's fabulous. I'm so happy for you!!! I can't wait to hear news about your beta!

Valerie- I hope you are enjoying your pregnancy :) I'm sure your beans are snugglin' in more and more everyday.

As for me, I'm looking forward to my 20 week Ultrasound in another week. I can't wait to see my little boy kickin' around. I've heard that if you drink some juice you can really seem 'em dance!

For all you ladies waiting for your beta, just remember that everyone is different and you never know what you will or won't feel or experience. (Personally I didn't feel anything- nada- except the side effects of progesterone) Keep your chin up and anticipate the best!

I'm hoping that everyone here gets their BFP and for those of you who don't have success this time, I hope that you will have the strength to deal with the loss of your little eggies/blasts you worked so hard for and to move on to whatever step is next and right for you.

Much Love,
Nicole

Shellbell~ I'm so sorry this year has been so rough on you..the year is not over yet and I know you will have a BFP soon. Don't give up...
if you can and want to, I hope you get to start as soon as you are comfortable with it! Big hugs to you and DH.

Mztia~ Wow, you're doing so great!!! :D Lots of beautiful follies that will make strong eggs. Your E2 number looks very good too. Keep making those beautiful follies!

SDTrying~ You always bring a smile to my face...thank you for checking in. I am enjoying my pregnancy :wink: at least until they tell me otherwise. :D I KNOW you are enjoying yours...what a beautiful moment to see your little boy again. Love for you!

Toobee~ I have never POAS in my life and will stick to your vow. You girls are adding stress by POAS....I couldn't do it.

Best of luck to our beta girls...let's have some more BFPs :D
Turtles and Kate, you are in my thoughts!!

shellbell - I am so sorry things didn't go your way. This year has been really bad for you. Take some time to recoup and get your mind and body ready for the next ride on this IVF roller coaster. Your in my prayers.

SDtrying - Hey good to hear you are doing well. Thanks for crashing. Enjoy seeing your little one in a week.

toobee- I am a POAS addict I admit. I can't help myself. I try to hold off but just can't. I already have a bunch for tomorrow just to confirm the last two days. :oops: 3pm is going to take forever to get here. I wonder how long it will take for the results?

Good luck tomorrow Kate!!

Hi Girls,

Just thought I should let you know that I didn't go for my beta today as I started bleeding this morning. I woke up with bad cramps and there was AF 10mins later. DH and I are gutted :cry:

This was our last try, we have no frosties and I have no more hope left. I am so tired of this and have no idea where we go from here. I can't imagine life without kids but I guess I need to come to terms with that.

I've decided that I won't be posting anymore, I need to break away totally. Good luck to all those near to testing or in mid cycle - I hope your dreams come true.

Kate :D

I just tested as well and at 11dp3dt I got another neg. My beta is on Friday. I do feel like AF would be here if it wasnt for the PIO shots. But DH and I have prayed about this so if it isnt Gods will then we will go on with our lives. I am so sorry for all the other ladies that have gotten BFN's. Praying for you!

Kate21, Bell-02 and Shell - I am so sorry this isn't turning out as expected. I know it is hard because I feel that I am going through the same thing. Good luck to all of you in whatever you decide to do in the future. Just by making it through all the cycles that you have done makes all of you courageous and strong ladies.


Muggsey - Happy B-Day, that sucks that you didn't even get your BFP on your b-day.

KAS - How is our other Beta buddy doing?

Turtles - I am so happy about your BFP and can't wait to see your Beta #. I just remembered when you got your BFN on your last cycle. I think I posted something like "at least you can say you made it to ER". Seems that you and I have some things in common about cycles. We both were canceled twice before we made it to ER. So now I am going to take my own advice and keep up some PMA because this time I did make it to ER and if this cycle didn't work, there is always a chance that the next will.

Amanda - How are you doing? Hopefully you got your PMA back today. Many Many people don't get any symptoms so don't worry so much about that.

Val - Thanks for all of the encouragement. I can't wait to see your Beta #'s next week.

MizTia and Lynniecat - How are stims going?

TooBee - Good luck on your Beta tomorrow.

Mixfixit - Good luck on your ER.

For me, I did POAS Tuesday afternoon and of course it was BFN. I wasn't sad, I was more pissed off. So this morning I decided I would not POAS again because it would put me in a bad mood again. I told DH that this didn't work. He asked me how I knew and I told him "I just know my body". He said that if this does work then he is going to remind me of that comment for the next 9 months. I told him that I would love to eat crow and would love to hear him give me crap for the next 9 months.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Chris

Kate21, Bell-02 and Shell - I'm so so sorry about your sad news :(. My heart goes out to you. It's hard to find words of solace as everything, I'm sure, just sounds hollow. We've all been there with failed natural, IUI and IVF cycles. It does get harder and harder with each BFN. I hope you can find comfort in your loved ones and the things you love to do. And maybe just maybe you sholdn't give up hope all together. There still may be that one next time when it WILL WORK for you! Life does have a mysterious way of working things out somehow.

HUGS!

turtles - BIG FAT CONGRATS on your BFP!!! :) That is fantastic news!!! I'm so happy for you! :)

Everyone else getting their Beta today, good luck! Keeping fingers, toes and eyes crossed for you, ladies! :wink:

Kate - I was heartbroken when I read that this didn't work out for you. I am sending big hugs you and your DH's way. I really do hope God finds a way to put a child in your life. Your in my prayers.

Muggsey - Happy Birthday and sorry you didn't get the results you are looking for. You still have a few days. I have also had the crampy, feeling like Af is coming so don't give up hope yet. good luck.

Chris - I remember now about you saying at least I made it to ER and this time you made it also. Like I told Muggsey, you still have a few days. You might have late implanters.

Well, since I have had 3 days now of BFP on HPT I think I will call my doc and see if I can go in early for my beta. I don't want to wait until 3pm!! I tested again this morning with an EPT digital and it had the wonderful words "Pregnant"!!:D:D I bought 25 cheap tests online for $15 and I learned with those you have to wait 10 min. for the results and it is still only a faint line. I also looked up sensitivity and found tests can go as low as 10 and as high as 100 hcG levels. What a difference!! The majority are 25 and 50 it seems. Here are a couple of links so you can see what your test might be. http://www.fertilityplus.org/faq/hpt.html and http://www.webwomb.com/hpt_levels_hcg_levels.htm

Good luck everyone!!

Good morning!


Kate~ My heart is breaking for you and comforting words are hard to find. Take a break, let life get back to normal. Many surprises come into our lives when we least expect it! I think something good will come into your life sometime down the road. Big hugs to you and your DH and best wishes.

Muggsey~ Happy Birthday !! :D :D
I'm sorry that you didn't get your positive on your POAS but you've got a couple more days before your beta! Cramping and low back pain is good. I keep my fingers and toes crossed for you!

Turtles~ HOORAY for another positive on your POAS !! That's great news! Can't wait to see your beta #. :D :D

Chris~ I do hope you will eat crow for the next nine months for breakfast, lunch and dinner! I so hope you are so wrong!!

Well, as for me, I'm totally exhausted today. I can hardly stay awake to write. The cramping happens most during the night and I had quite a few sharp ones last night.
My period would be due by tomorrow or the next day as my LMP was on the 6th of August. So I just hope I don't get any sign of blood and that it keeps going like it has.
I've been eating everything that is not tied down and can't get enough.
I had my first sexy dream last night but it only brought on some cramps.
I do feel like I'm pregnant and I reaaally hope I'm right. I'd love to bring another BFP to our team.

I hope to see a tons more BFPs from you girls. I'm thinking about all of you ...Gigantic hugs to all.

Love,

Valerie --

You must be pregnant, I think this is it for you. Symptoms are so dead on!


Kate21 --

Just in case you are still reading -- I am so sorry to hear your news. But...not to be annoying....I got "AF" as well with my first IVF round. I was bleeding and was sure it was over. I was in vegas oddly for my 2WW (scheduled way in advance). So I went out and drank a bunch. Did not test for a few more days, still bleeding, and then said what the heck, POAS and low behold positive. Turns out I had twins. Never understood the bleeding. Anyway, I would do the beta anyway...also the PIO should prevent AF from coming on! Good luck and sorry if I am giving false hope, I just remember how sure I was that it was AF!


Shell -- Sorry to hear your news. I understand thinking about the babies that would have been. I still do myself but try not to! Keep on truckin if you can and hopefully that BFP will strike!


As for me my follicles are diving into two groups (I think there has been to screwy measurements as things seem more normal this time).

21, 18, 16, 12, 11.5

Waiting for my E2. My RE wants to go one more day but I don't want to lose that 21 as I think she is a good one. The RE is trying to bring in the 12 and 11.5, but I doubt that can happen without losing the lead follicle and I just have this feeling that the 21 is the one!

There are no words that can make you feel better and your outcome is heartbreaking and sad. I do hope that you will pursue another try when you are ready. I wish you strength during this time as you grieve. I cant tell you how sorry am for you and your DH and i do hope you will find peace with this soon. :cry: :cry:

MUGSEY :lol: :lol: :lol:
Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!!! Happy Birthday dear Mugseyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Valerie
Boy those cramps seem terrible. I am so sorry, but I cant imagine you not being pregnant with all these symptoms you having, maybe even triplets. Please make sue you let you body get as much rest as it needs, it is so important and i am so glad you took this week off.

Turtles
You are a poas-a-holic!! I enjoy reading your posts. You sound so excited!
Youare defintle preggers thats for sure. those sticks dont lie that much:)
Sticky vibes to you dear fellow POA-Sticker..hee hee :lol: :lol:


As for me...I am with no symptoms but I don;t go by that because its way to early for me in that regard.....except I am having twinges around my tubes which has me scared since I had an eptopic in the past and the feelings are smiliar but much less intense.... :roll: ..tommorrow is my beta...I should know by 2:00 PM for sure if I am pregnant, one step at a time for me.

I found this amazing website and wanted to share it with you!

http://www.ehd.org/prenatal-images-index.php

I think you will all enjoy looking at the development of the embryos and babies. Absolutely a gorgeous website !!

lynniecat~ You're doing well!! I was afraid of losing my biggest follie too. Mine reached 22mm before ER. I think you will be fine. Looks like you will have 3 strong follies. I felt the same way about my lead follie...I knew it was the one. And if I do get a BFP, I'll be convinced that the big one made it. Of course if it's twins or triplets :shock: , they will all have made it!!
Go with your gut feeling! But trust your RE. I had doubts too until I just let go of them and just trusted my RE!
Good luck...you're almost there!

Toobee~ Those twinges sound really good...I HOPE you're prego!! Sending all the sticky baby dust all lots of good vibes your way!

JJJake, Amanda, hoping4, horsegrl, kas,~ We miss you girls!! Hope all is well with all of you...just thinking about everyone!!

Kerpupples~ When are you having your FET done? I saw on another thread that your embies are doing so well. That's fantastic!!

Later girls,

lynniecat - Why do you think you will lose the 21 mm follie? I'm getting all confused. At my US yesterday (when they told me I was ready), I had a couple of follies that were 22 and one that was 24. I did not hear RE say ANYTHING about losing these three.
