nicksgam/Nicole - how lovely to hear from you! So happy that all is going well with your little bean.

Rosario - sweetie, you've been in my thoughts and prayers since your post on Saturday. How are you and the triplets doing??

vicky - how's the 2ww treating you, are you still analysing every last twinge? I so remember that from my last cycle during the 2ww, and I'm sure I'm not to be any more relaxed this time around! Sorry to hear about your argument with DH - I know what you are feeling with him starting to relax back into old ways. My DH was brilliant through my first cycle and really supportive, especially with not drinking and changing his diet to improve sperm quality, but I kind of feel that this time because we're doing an FET and he doesn't have to produce a sample, he's more detached, so I feel more alone this time. He's also drinking (albeit in moderation) on and off, and I'm trying not to be annoyed by it because although he doesn't have to give a sample this time, it's really hard when he has a drink and I can't. So I'm pleased that you managed to talk to your DH about it, and he understands how you feel. I should probably do the same, but in all likelihood I'll wimp out until it I get really upset/emotional and I burst into tears one day, lol...

KayCe - praying for a great result from your beta today, so excited about your HPT results!!

truebeliever - not long until beta on Friday!

katie99 - not long until stims...

KJGrant - keeping my fingers crossed that you've escaped any worse symptoms for OHSS. Did you have a smooth transfer yesterday morning? Wow, 18 fertilised eggs, that's incredible. How many did you transfer and how many did you freeze?

angieinhull - so many 2ww ladies at the moment! Hope you manage to keep busy this week, but also rest well. I laughed at your story about the weekend - quite a role reversal on the usual scenario, huh, the man wanting to go round the shops while the woman just wanting to have a sit down?

marymeganb - hope ER goes smoothly for you tomorrow, report in when you can with the news...

prayin4BFP - (((((hugs))))) I hope you get better soon.

wickedwheel - honey, I'm so sorry that the HCG levels still aren't good. Please let us know how you get on today at your next b/s - you're in my thoughts and prayers.

Debbie - I'm so sorry, I was so looking forward to reading about your transfer. Do they know what happened with your embryos?

lw918 - hope those follies are still growing nicely. Are you still on for ER the middle of this week? If so, I guess you must be doing your trigger around now? I was a bit confused about your having to decide how many eggs to fertilise - were you only going to fertilise some and then freeze the rest of the eggs unfertilised? I had heard that embryos freeze better than unfertilised eggs, so I didn't quite understand, but hey I'm a relative newbie to the crazy world of IVF!!

katieg - how's the BCP's going? You're due for FET early August, correct? When will you move onto the estrogen pills?

to_have_fun - so sorry that your embies didn't make it to blast, (((((hugs))))). Has the clinic been able to tell you why that was, and what they can do differently next time?

Michele - sounds like you've had your hands full this past week, what with getting over the trip for your brother's wedding and being ill. Good luck with starting Lupron this week, I'm so happy to hear that you can start an August cycle, September seems like such a long time away! I will be keeping everything crossed that those e2 levels behave themselves. And I loved the ABC News story, what a great outcome for them. As you say, it gives us all hope.

sabi - twins, yippee! My best wishes for a healthy and smooth pregnancy. I hope to be able to join you over on the 'moms to be' side soon, but in the meantime, please pop back now and then to see us all and cheer the rest of us on...

AFM, I'm pleased to say that my dog came home on Thursday night after being on a drip for 36 hours, and is now on the mend (katie99 - what she and my other dog managed to eat is still a total mystery, but having researched the disease (hemorrhagic gastroenteritis) online, it seems that it can come out of the blue for dogs and be quite serious, so we are just counting ourselves lucky that she made it though). So now that I'm not panicking about her any more, I'm back to counting down the hours to my FET! I have a scan on Friday afternoon to check my lining and will then know more on timing, but we're still expecting FET next Monday or Tuesday. Only a week away now - eeeek, so excited!! P.S. Michele, if you get a moment, could you move me up to the 'on estrogen for FET' area please?

Hi everyone,

Kayce- to answer to question from many pages back I use Baystate Reproductive in Springfield.


hjw- and CT_michele thanks for asking: I think I have lucked out with not getting OHSS, I have been very bloated and was in a lot of pain but now I am just dealing with cramps after my ET yesterday. They keep telling me though the symptoms could get worst if I do get pregnant (that would be fine)

They transferred 1 embryo yesterday and they froze 2 today. So I am PUPO and now a part of the 2ww group my beta is set for July 28th.
MY cramps are pretty intense they come on really fast in quick strong twinges then go away, cramps I had exactly like when I took provera so I hope it is just my lining building up.
Well I am thinking of you all and praying for the best.

KayCe - hurray you got your BFP confirmed!! Congratulations to you and DH!!! 86 sounds perfect for your 14dpo beta, when do you go back for your next one?

Daisy - can't wait to hear about your scan today, I'm sure you are going to have a perfect beanie in there!! Let us know how you get on... P.S. BPM is a new one on me - what does it stand for??

KJGrant - so happy that you're not suffering badly with OHSS symptoms. Like you say, if you get pregnant they might get worse but I'm sure you'd happily make that trade! And I've read a story or two of women on the brink of OHSS who got pregnant and the symptoms didn't actually get any worse - they thought it meant the embryo didn't implant when in fact they were pregnant the whole time. So try not to analyse too much if things don't get worse! In the meantime, rest up and I hope the cramps subside quickly.

Michele - thanks for moving me on the list, I got really excited when I saw my name in the 'almost there...on estrogen for FET'. It's starting to feel very real now!!

Hi ladies x

KayCe - massive Congratulations to your both. So pleased for you :D Well done x

Daisy - hope your scan went well today. Need full report! :)

Ange - how you feeling? Not long till your D-Day eh!

KJGrant - welcome to the 2ww! arrgghhh PMA and Sticky baby thoughts for you x

Well me and DH are better. He's gone to the extreme now and cant help enough! lol We're now celebrating our wedding anniversary this Friday and I'm leaving it to DH to book a meal somewhere nice! :D We just get one thing sorted and something else happens - we've been having trouble with our car!! :x It failed it's MOT and was in garage for 5 days and they didn't know what was wrong with it! Then we had to get this guy to come and test the tuning on the car and he found what's wrong. So DH has got the part and fixed it tonight. It feels a bit better but we still need a new battery and we might need a bit more work doing to it which could end up costing over £500!! Plus we had to pay £550 today for freezing our embies (although we don't mind that!) But it just feels its one thing after another lately!

On a brighter side I've got my days fully booked this week to take my mind of things - lunch with my girl friends tomorrow and Thursday. Friday a bit of retail therapy with my mum and Saturday I'm going to York (small town near where I live) with my friend to try bridesmaid dresses :D It's not while next September in Cyprus but me and my best friend are just too excited! LOL Although I tried one on the other day and it wouldn't fit across the boobs! oops! My friend took that as a sign, although she takes every twinge I have as a sign! I have put on so much weight though! Still having that feeling of waiting for AF to make an apperance although my stomach cramps have stopped now. Don't know if that's a good or bad thing?! So I'm pretty busy so should take my mind off things!!

Thanks for your comments about my previous rant - was so nice to hear that people knew what I meant and how I was feeling!

All the prayers are really working, so keep them coming!

We had a great ultrasound today!! Heart rate was 136bpm and we are measuring right at 7 weeks!! So, so excited!! It feels real now.

Thanks so much for everything that you gals have done for me. I appreciate each of you so much.

For those still trying - I am proof. We did a 3 day transfer with a 6-celled B- embryo. Come to find out, the little embie just wanted to be inside me to really flourish!! IT ONLY TAKES ONE!!

Many hugs and kisses to everyone!
