Robin - So sorry about your negative. Sending you lots of (((HUUGGSS)). I really wouldn't know what to choose between a fresh cycle or doing a FET. Either way the outcome can be good. Just because these embies didn't stick, doesn't mean that your other 2 will not. Good luck with either way that you chose.

Hopeful_VA - Hopefully, your baby will catch up. Maybe he/she is just on the really slow cooker speed. I will be keeping you and your little baby in my prayers that things will work out.

hi Ladies, I hope everyone is doing well today

amfmbaby- before I got my AF I called the nurse and told her that AF is nowhere in sight and she said that I'll probably start stimming anyway even without AF so I think its normal to start stimming even w/o AF I think its just that your hormones have to be in order. GL hope you get to start soon!

Hopeful_VA- I'm so sorry for your news, but i hope that its just because the baby was a late implanter. I hope it will catch up and that everything will be allright, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. I heard of Ladies having late implanters and that docs thought they were week behind but in reality they implanted couple of days later than they thought.

babyluv- I hope your DD comes home soon, wow she's a strong one taking only tylenol I would probably be screaming for something stronger

robin611- I'm so sorry about your BFN :cry: , I dont know what i would do in your situation as I had none that made it to freeze in my last cycle. But frozen cycles are much less stressful as you dont have to do stimming I think it all depends if you can handle doing the fresh cycle and maybe get more eggs or just take the ones you already have. Either way you choose I think is the right decision as you have 2 great embies frozen.

AFM I'm starting stimming today wooooooohoooooooooooooo, this will put me on an estimated ER for next Thur/Fri .... next u/s is 3/27 will keep you updated!!!

So today is 6dp5dt and I broke down and took an HPT and it was negative I had transfer on Tuesday March 17 and from Wednesday through Saturday I had cramping like AF was coming and today is when HCG should be starting to enter the blood stream do you guys think that it is still to early to detect on an HPT or are my chances over again one of the embryos was already hatching when they givve them back to me I was hoping that was a good sign BETA isnt until Thursday wonder do I still have a chance

Hi ladies -

Just wanted to let you know that dd is HOME! It's been a long week, but surprisingly not as hard as I thought it would be (well, once the surgery was over that is). Still, a 7 day hospital stay (and a BFN) took a lot out of me. I'm ready for March to be over.

She is doing so well and was SO happy to be home. She must have laughed at everything ds did for a good 15 min after seeing him. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Glad to have her home.

I get to join the world of looking at a full size screen at home no more phone posting for me .......

dys24 I'm glad to know that I can stim as long as hormones ARE OK but no worries I got AF today and couldn't be happier I go back Friday for u/s and labs and when I talked to RE this morning he sees no reason why I should be held back

AFM I have stim envy but hope to join you friday

Robin611 I am so sorry about BFN I also had nothing to freeze last cycle and going freash again gives me hope that I will have some to freeze this time or at least get a 5dt I hear Fet is a lot less stressful and maybe just what the body needs after a fresh cycle

Hopeful-VA I'm rooting and praying for your little bean and wish you lots of luck with u/s

Chris you are amazing with support you have given me thanks again I look forward to stimming soon

Tabatha1975 goodluck with ER sending lots of baby vibes your way

espinozal23 wishing you extra luck for your BETA

Good Morning Ladies. Sorry I have been MIA. I have been sick with a real bad cold. I have also been trying to catch up with my work cuz I have been so backed up, and I am also going crazy cuz they still havent told me anything about the job. I asked and they are finalizing, they just need to wait for the Chairman to come back from vacation which should be today. Hopefully I will hear something soon. Hopefully I will get the job.

Sorry I havent been keeping up but I also noticed that the forum has been kind of slow. I guess It is almost the ending of this cycle.. :( Once everyone has done their Betas and have gotten their results... I think I am going to take a big break from the forums. I still am having a hard tiome excepting my results. So no more heartbreak for me. I am going to start my CBFM next AF cuz I missed this AF so hopefully thats all it was.

Chris... Hun, your Beta is almost here. How are you feeling? Have you POAS yet? I recall you saying you were going to POAS on the 27th, do u still plan on it? I really really hope and pray that u get your BFP. You really deserve it and honestly I really think it is your time. Good Luck hun.

Robin... I am so sorry for your BFN. As perfect as the embies were, I also will never understand what goes wrong? Why doesnt it work? SO many questions left unanswered. I just hope that the next time will bring u your BFP. Good Luck hun.

Tabatha... Congrats on getting to trigger... Hope u get lots of great eggs tomorrow. Good Luck!!!

Espinoza.... SOrry about the BFN on HPT. But you never know, u may always end up with your BFP at Beta... and I wish you do. Good Luck hun. Have u heard anything yet?

kcraven... Understandable MIA.... Hun Good luck on your FET.

babyluv... U r a strong lady, being able to endure so much. I am so glad your DD is home and doing well, and once again I am so sorry for your BFN. Now that DD is home and doing well, I hope that your next cycle will be less stressful, and you accomplish your BFP. Good luck Hun!!

amfmbaby... COngrats on starting Stims... let the fun begin :o) Hope it goes smooth and u dont get the Crazy mood swings, either way I hope it leads to your BFP. Good Luck.

hi ladies!

robin, I'm really sorry about your results. trust your heart, if you should do a FET or a fresh cycle. You never know, one of your frosties could be the one. good luck with whatever you decide.

lady j, a break is totally understandable. I hope that you get this job, and I hope that the next cycle you try, you get your bfp. you deserve it soooooo much, I know it has to happen for you soon.

amfmbaby, good to have your computer back, huh? hope you start your stims!

espinozal, I'm wishing you luck today and sending hugs.

tabatha, hope to hear that your ER was good. thinking of you!

hopeful, I'm keeping you in my prayers that things have a good turn.

chris, how are you feeling?

babyluv, soooo good to hear about your DD. so glad she is home where she belongs, and laughing and happy.

Things are not looking too good for me. I starting bleeding on Wednesday so they moved my U/S to Thursday. When I went in I honestly had prepared myself for the worst. However, the baby was still there and had grown but unfortunately the hb dropped from 96 to 82 so at this point there is not too much hope. The doctor is going to continue to monitor it so I have another U/S on Monday. He stated that at this point we are likely just waiting for it to take its course. I am really sad about all of this but have decided to stay in a happy place. I am ready to move forward and try again if this ends the way it seems it will. Thank you all for you thoughts, prayers and kind words. I will continue to keep you posted but I doubt expect the news to get any better.
