Waiting...waiting...waiting for the call with my 1st beta results. Since I got the BFP w/ the HPT my nurse said it should be BFP, but I am still nervous.
Anyone else get a rash or redness "down there" from the endometrium? My nurse is going to put me on oral progesterone. TMI...It is just way too much constant discharge.

gi-I've had cramping off and on since transfer. The nurse said it could be do to the progesterone but I did not cramp on the progesterone prior to the FET so I took it as a good sign. I wish the same for you! :D

geckogirl-Congratulations on your BFP! That's a great beta!

Lisa10- Can't wait to read your results today!

AFM- I got my 2nd beta today-(13dp5dt) and it was 1,299! My dh and I extremely excited. I will not have to go back to RE till next week.

Hi Ladies,

I still have a lot of catching up to do...I am pages behind. I was reading a few pages and then time got ahead of me so I thought I would just post a quick update and finish reading later.

Congrats to the new BFP's since I last read and I am sorry for those of you who got a BFN. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

AFM Friday was ER. They got 13 eggs which they were happy with. Saturday they called me and told me 8 fertilized. The Dr. said I impressed a lot of people around there so that was encouraging. I went in today, Monday, for my ET. When I got there we had 6 embryos remaining so we lost 2 since Saturday but they said that often happens. They but 2 8 cell back. The Dr. said I could not have had a more perfect cycle then this one. Which is great to hear too but I have to stay mellow about the whole thing and realize it could go either way still.

I go for my BETA September 8th- Michelle can you update me??

Thanks everyone...
Me 27 DH 35
IVF #1- 7/09- BFN
FET #1- 10/09 - Cancelled. 4 Embryos did not survive the thaw
Next Cycle hopefully April- I pray by April

I need your prayers. The clinic just called and my HCG level is really low and so is my progesterone. I am pregnant, but she said it may be a chemical pregnancy. There is a chance it will hang on if we can get the prog up. I go back Wednesday. At the same time I ge this news the heating and ac guy is telling me I need a part for my ac that costs $1,000. My happy day just truned real sad. :cry:
Please keep us in your prayers.

lisa10-Stay positive!!!

Just got the call that my retrieval will be on Wednesday. This morning I had 10 measureable follicles from my right ovary, but only 3 from my left. Hoping for a successful retrieval and transfer on Sat. or Mon.

Penny- We're almost cycle twins :) My ER was Sat. 14 retrieved and 6 fertilized. They called me today and my transfer will be Thursday, with the same day, Sept 8, Scheduled for Beta. It's crazy that I'm allready in the 2WW and they're not even inside yet!!! I wish us both amazing success and look forward to hearing your results.

Lisa- I'm sorry for your news. These things can end up fine! I've read enough stories on here to believe in miracles. Prayers for you!

Thanks guys, your prayers and support are appreciated. Dogz...I thought of you when I got the news, I remember you thought all was over and miracles happen. My nurse called them HCG levels, not beta, is that the same? My HCG was 18.5. They want 50 min. My progesterone was 2.5, I think, they wanted 20 min. I was kinda upset then and didn't have a pen. I took a HPT Saturday and it turned possitive in like 30 seconds, so I expected everything to come back alright. I thought you needed a 25 HCG for a poss HPT. Maybe my levels are dropping?
I was on the prog suppositories. I got a rash so they are putting me on a pill (400mg). I am also going to do 1 supppository a day also. My nurse said the key is to get the progesterone up. So I asked is this enough???
They will evaluate Wed after my labs and see if I need to add more. I hope I don't need the shot because my DH is going on a business trip Thursday and I don't know how I can give that to myself.
The nurse said to prepare myself that this could be chemical, but there is a chance.
I am a little sorry I took the HPT, because I thought all was good for 3 days. I pulled out my old maternity clothes and printed a preg calendar. I told my DH waiting wouldn't have changed the outcome, but he said at least we would have gotten the bad news w/o having the days of thinking all was good. I am going to try to stay possitive. I have been praying. It ain't over till it's over.
I do have 2 frozen embies. Can anyone tell me about the FET process? Can they thaw 1 embie at a time? That way I could do 2 FET's. I assume they get you all ready then thaw. If the embie didn't make it would the cycle be cancelled then or could they just thaw the next? Let's hope we don't need this, but I am a planner. It helps me know there is still hope out there.

lisa10 - I am so sorry you are stuck in beta limbo (Yes HCG is the same as "beta"). Hang in there and we will all pray for you.

As far as the FET proceedure, I just went though one. It is pretty easy. They shut down your ovaries with Lupron then start the estrace and progesterone and on the day of transfer they thaw the embies and see how they look. My clinic freezed them in pairs, so we unfroze two. We really didn't want to risk twins so since ours thawed perfectly and they both were excellent 5 day blasts, the embryologist picked the one she thought was best and we transfered it. The other we refroze for use later if needed. So if you have a few frozen ask them about how many they would transfer. Although I sure hope you just don't need to and this one will stick around. Keep us posted. ((((hugs)))
