GM Ladies,

KayCe and Daisy CONGRATS!!!! YAY. That is such great news for both of you.

AFM, I'm still waiting for AF. I'm cramping like it's coming but still nothing. The doctor said to call him if I didn't get it in two weeks. This was on 7/3 when my cycle was canceled. I guess I'll give it another day and then call RE to see what's up. Just waiting on AF so the fun can start again.

Hi Ladies!

I haven't posted in ages but have been reading and checking in. My FET was supposed to be July 24th but was canceled due to a high estrogen level and a slight HCG level. The HCG level was 3 so nothing substantial but that with the high estrogen made them cancel my cycle. It looks like the HCG level was lab error. Now I have to wait until September for my FET. :(

Congrats to all of you mommies to be! I'll b thinking of you! AND LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS of sticky baby dust to all those that are still trying!

Well ladies, the ER went well yesterday. 10 eggs were retrieved. The nurses called me this morning and of the 10, only 4 were mature, and of those 3 fertilized. SO, I have 3 little embies growing away right now! My transfer is Friday at 10. I can hardly wait. Im remaining cautiously optimistic, but it's hard for me not to get excited, b/c things have gone so well. DH and I have decided to transfer all 3 embies if they are of good enough quality. I know the risks, but it's worth it for me! Fingers crossed that the embies grow well over the next 48 hours!

Evening ladies

Daisy - so please everything went well with your first u/s. Must have been amazing seeing your baby for the first time :D

MarymaganB - well done on your ER. Fingers crossed those 3 embies get bigger and better for Friday x

Ange - how you doing?! Not long to go now for you! You been tempted to POAS?! I think me and DH might have a ride to Brid on Sunday, my mum's got a caravan near Skipsea. It's worth going to Brid for the fish n chips! :)

Well I've got 1 week to go - this time next week I'll either be the happiest woman in the world or the sadest woman in the world! I don't know what'll seem the longest, this next week or the 3 minutes waiting on the test result! lol
I'm still getting a few twinges, I actually woke up last night because of a stomach cramp/twinge - could this still be due to the ER on the 10 July? Just don't want to analysis every twinge but I'm still getting them - I don't think I got them this bad on my last fresh cycle! I'm getting tempted to POAS though but just scared of the result! It's nice to be PUPO until Wednesday when I know the real answer!! arrgghhhh descisions decisions eh!

Hope the rest of the 2wwer's are hanging in there! :)

Hi

DAisy - you must be so excited having seen the heart beat. Just goes to show it does just take one. Congratulations mummy

Vicky - I have been feeling awful. I even spoke to Dawn today to see what's going on. She said not to worry and if the symptoms get worse maybe need to see them. I feel like I have done loads of sit ups and get breathless particularly at night. I want to POAS but dh is adamant that we shouldn't. We also had fish and chips on saturday. It is so much better there than here! Have fun though and hoping wednesday comes quickly for you to make you the happiest woman alive.

MarymaganB - congrats. Good luck for friday. You'll soon be PUPO.

4 more days to go.....

Update

Post by TrueBeliever » Wed Jul 22, 2009 9:27 pm

Hello Ladies... How is everyone doing? I am excited about the great ultrasound report and also the great reports on the fertilized eggs....

I have to run so I just wanted to give a quick update... Today ladies I caved in... I couldn't take it anymore... I went into the cabinet and pulled out the Clear Blue Digital and said a prayer... Low and behold...it was POSITIVE!!! WOW, just to see those words "PREGNANT" is truly amazing.... of course I am trying to play the cool and collective role until beta Friday.. Only 2 days away. Hopefully the numbers are good.

Hugs to everyone, I think of you all daily.. So glad to have such a great support system!

Truebeliever Congratulations!!! I can tell you now that a positive is a positive, you are way passed your trigger shot!!! Can't wait to hear about your beta on friday!!! You are pregnant!!!

Vicky I can tell you I had my BFPs both with cramps and no cramps, so I guess you cannot read too much into all the symptoms, most of the time is progesterone playing tricks on your body!! I'm glad you are keeping yourself busy!!! Patience dust to you!!!

marymegan Yeah!!! Three little embies, I'll do the grow embie grow dance!!! I'm sure you'll have great news for us on friday. Good luck and you'll be in my prayers.

kayse I can't believe your follie count!!! How are you doing?? Any OHSS symptom??

wolffie, I'm sorry you got cancelled but I guess you have to go with what will be your best option!!! So let's hope for great levels and a BFP on september!! Good luck and please keep us posted.

Johannanita Doing the AF dance!!! I hope she comes to visit you soon and you can get back in the game!!!


Sticky and baby dust to all.

Hi gang,

Sorry to drop in like this! I don't think I've posted on this thread since April! My apologies for being absent - but everything got to be too much for me. Our chances of getting pregnant were getting more and more hopeless with every Dr. we consulted with.

I recognize quite a few of your names from past cycles - so I just wanted to drop in and give some words of encouragement to everyone. Even though I haven't been on the boards - I think of all the women on this board every day and say a prayer for all.

Quick update (hopefully some more words of encouragement). We just completed our 3rd cycle. It was our worst response yet (even though it was a Ganirelix w/Estrogen priming cycle). Only 1 egg fertilized (we only had 3 mature). On day 3, it was only 4 cells (should've been 6-8) and was graded 4 on a scale of 1-5 (1=best, 5=worst).

I'm pregnant.

Babiesgalore & angie - Thx so much for your well wishes! I only just found out today - so now we wait out the dreaded 'first 12 weeks'.

hopeful - I don't know anything about beta numbers, sorry I can't help. I don't even know mine - I was too shocked to ask and my Dr. and her nurse were just giggling and laughing as they told me the news.

sprout- OMG, I am so happy for you! I was so excited to move your name down to results and finally put a BFP there! I have been on some threads with you and was routing extra hard for you after all you have been through. Congrats and I will keep looking for your updates.

angie- hang in there...4 days is not that long, your almost there!

truebeliever- congrats on the positive HPT...looks like another pregnancy for this thread!

marymeghan- congrats on 3 embies growing strong! Good luck at ET, I am sending lots of sticky dust your way.

wolfie- I am so sorry you got cancelled, I keep getting delayed too. I will watch for you on the september thread...hopefully I won't end up there, but with how many delays I have had, you might just see me soon.

vicky- one more week...hang in there girly.

johann- doing the af dance for you.

AFM, I finally started lupron again last night. I am so glad to be doing something again, but now I need to pray it does it's job and I am fully supressed in 7 days at u/s and bw...say a little prayer for me girls...I don't know if I can emotionally handle another delay.
