deftonesmo - Thanks for the info! So I had a 3 day ET on 9/5, so I'm 2dp3dt?

The nurse called me back and said I could take colase (sp?) stool softner. I'm going to Target soon. I'll be sure to pick up a pineapple too. I also read on here that pineapples make AF come, does anyone know if this is true?

Anywho, 10 more days til Beta. I don't know if I'm going to make it. I'm actually looking forward to going back to work. I have a lot of work to do so it should keep me busy for a while.

I too was told to take Colase, and it is a MIRACLE!!! I was in so much pain for the constipation (I didn't know that that was the cause of the pain and was scared!), and it has helped me tremendously. Hope you feel better soon! :lol:

dogzrule - That is SO good to hear about the colase. I've been a little crampy too. I wonder if it's related. I'm going to get ready to take a little trip to Target to go get my Colase! I'm so excited. lol Oh the little things that make us happy. :D I hope you're feeling well.

OK - the 2ww hasn't been bad...but I'm now starting to be impatient! Am I tired because I know I should be tired or cause I am? Am I feeling off cause I'm nervous? It was great having a holiday weekend to laze around and sleep in and spend time being distracted with friends. But now I know its back to work...and four more days until I know! I actually contemplated POAS, but I haven't before and I'm not going to now...I think...

fkm - you are almost there! just keep up the pma!

deftonesmo - I totally agree with almost not wanting the beta test. As much as all this can drive us crazy, it's nice to think I could be pregnant!

Johannaita - Woot! Into the 2ww! sending sticky dust and may it go quickly!

hi girls,

I am bit confused regarding hcg levels, i got a blood test done yesterday 18 days after 3 day transfer and my regular gp (not fertility gp) says my hcg is 739 and he says its normal and doestn need to repeat the test. I have nothing to compare it too so not sure on how it started off or if its doubling but to me they seem a bit low when i compare them to some of ye, am i worrying for nothing?? My scan isnt for another 2 wks and i am terrifed in case i lose my baby again.

Hi All

So I have been POAS since Friday b/c I started to spot and I couldnt stand to not know what was happening!! BFN for me! Went for BETA today, they didnt call yet but we know what they will say. I got my AF since then. I am scheduled on the 18th of this month to meet with Dr. to talk about FET. Since I already got AF I can get in on this cycle which would start me around the 25th.

Sorry to be the one to bring this thread down!!

Congrats to all the BFP's and please pray that my FET will work!!

Thanks for all your support, I didnt write much but I read everyday and your postings helped me through!!

Thanks!!

Hey ladies,
Sorry ive been missing over the weekend. I went out of town and went to a few bbq's Im still stuffed. Hope your holiday was great.

penny: Im sorry to hear about that. Im glad your going to jump right back in and not give up. You will get your miracle so keep the faith. I'll be praying for you.

Gi: Hey, thats confusing also b/c they did it on day 18 you dont know a normal number. Im sure everything is fine so try not to worry to much. Keep the faith and hang on for 2 more wks. Stay positive because your mind can play tricks on you so keep positive thoughts in your head.


AFM: I have my 1st baby u/s on Thurs I cant wait and im so excited. We will see if there is 1 or 2 babies in there. I hope they are doing fine. I did the ivf calander and i am 5weeks and 3 days pregnant. I cant wait to get the confirmation from the RE and get my little ticker on the bottom :D I will keep you all posted.

Hi All,

I am getting worried. Today I started spotting pink and it hasn't let up yet. It is just a little on my panti liner. I also have cramps. I called my doctor and she said that it can be very normal and not to come in unless it is gushing. I have an u/s on Thursday scheduled anyway, but I am afraid that I am miscarrying. Dogz - you had spotting, right? Anyone else out there having this problem?

BFP!BFP!BFP!

Can you tell I'm excited? After 3 HPT's I went for my Beta today and it was 284. Woo hoo! It's hard to believe I'm going to be a mommy and this all wasn't some sort of weird science experiment.

Ok back to work..no more lollygagging...

Thanks to everyone for all your support!
It's Triplets!

Geckogirl: I am spotting too. On and off since last week. Today it was a bit more but it has always been pinkish which I have never experienced before. I have had 2 miscarriages and the bleeding has always been more like a period. I am super nervous as I have my beta tom. I have taken 2 hpts that were both positive (I vowed not to poas this time but I am freaking out with the spotting). Have you taken a test and when is your beta? Good luck and try to stay positive. I would also like to see what dogzrules spotting was like.

Penny: sorry about the bfn. Best of luck to u with your next cycle.
Congrats to new bfps!

Hello Ladies...
Today I am experiencing some red watery spotting (TMI) sorry. Not enough to fill a pantyliner, however obviously nerveracking due to color. I have taken two HPT's both positive and I have my beta tomorrow. I have never experienced this type of discharge/spotting ever. Previous losses involved red spotting that progressed to full flow. Could it be from the progesterone suppositories? Thanks
