Hi ladies! It sounds like everybody has been making great progress in their cycles:) I had my beta test today and have a BFP!!! I am very excited, but also very nervous. I had some spotting today already. My doctor's office said it is pretty common, but to call back if it increases or if I get crampy. After so many months of trying, the last thing you want to see if anything close to red! So, I cautiously optimitic. I will have another beta drawn on Monday, so hopefully my number will continue to increase. I'm telling you, I think this month is a pretty darn lucky month for our group! It feels like there have been a lot of BFPs, doesn't it?
Lauren, rsdrisco and Hopeful_009:
welcome to the wonderful 2ww! Let me know if I can be of any support to you during this time. For me, it felt like such a long time to wait! I had a few IVF friends that I got together with...it really helped me to hear about their experiences and talk about ours. I tried to keep busy too!
How are you feeling? Are you still experiencing the OHSS? What is the date for your beta test?
That is wonderful news regarding the number that fertilized and also the high quality of your embryos. I understand your worries about having multiples...in my mind, two seems manageable, but more than that can be scary/overwhelming/medically complicated. I worked as a antepartum nurse for about 2 years (this was 8 years ago), and I saw some triplet moms and 1 quadruplet mom who were in the hospital for bedrest and monitoring...it was amazing and yet hard on these women to be in the hospital on bedrest. When is your Beta test?
congratulations on your embryo transfer too! It is so exciting knowing you have fertilized embryos inside, isn't it? My husband and I were on a huge high knowing our embryos were inside of me:) When is your beta test? You had asked if I felt any tweeks or twinges during my tww and believe me, I was watching, feeling and listening for anything to make me think I might be pregnant! I did have cramping for a couple of days after my transfer (not right after, but it started a couple days after), which in my mind was the embryo/s implanting. Other than that, my boobs have been incredibly sore all through this process...that continued and they may have gotten a tiny bit bigger. Other than that, absolutely no signs! I truly thought I would be able to "feel" if I was pregnant or that I would feel different. I was so wrong on that! Now that I'm thinking more, I think I may have had to pee a little more and had heartburn a few times (which never happens to me).
Please let us know how the fertilization went...we are all thinking of you!
Glad to see you are continuing to post
That's exciting that your injections start in about a week! Please keep us posted on how you are doing!
Welcome! I believe your ER is tomorrow, so best of luck with that:) Please let us know how that goes!!
