Hi girls -

I've been trying to stay away from these boards, but we all know thats impossible. It seems like my Dh is taking the bfn worse than me. Its really hard on both, but he is obsessed with "why" i told him not to expect too much from RE, theres so many factors as to whether you are successful or not. So I made my follow up appt for the 28th, so I've been trying to stay sane til then, what else can you do?

shelby -Sooo happy for you!! :D :D

babiesgalore -thanks, hon - your words meant alot to me! I hope that your preg is going well & that you are happy & healthy! xoxo



rayofsunshine -what did you decide? it might be a little weird, but so what - that was such a generous offer they made you! God is looking out for you!! best of luck to you whatever you decide!

beth -Welcome! Of course I remember you! Hope you are on your way to a bfp! Do you still keep in touch with dogzrule?

michele -I think your book idea is a wonderful gesture! You are always so thoughtful & warm! Did you find out anything yet about ikea?

lisa -thanks! Hope you are resting up & letting that little one snuggle in!

franny -thanks! I'm rooting for you too! YAY AF!

prayin -I'm sorry. Rest, heal, recover - hugs

Katie99- Good to hear from you hon. Poor DH. I know when I had my m/c that was a huge part of why it hurts so bad because you don't understand why it didn't work or why the baby stopped growing...there's no closure, it just stops. To this day we ask ourselves that question...why us, why did it happen? GL on the 28th, you are going to be just fine!

Wolffie Good to hear from you and glad you are still poking around here!

jaydentd- I tested at 6dp5dt...way early if you ask me...and surprisingly got a + but you should probably wait until 8dp5dt I think to be more accurate. Good Luck!

shelby – I am twice as happy for you! May you end up with Two, sweet, healthy and patient babies!

Katie99 – I know what you mean..my hubby tries to be strong for me but I know he is hurting with each BFN, chemical or MC we get. I feel like I have really let him down as it seems to be my body with the issue..we just don’t know what the issue is..how frustrating. When the time is right try to have a heart to heart with him.

rayofsunshine – I might be temped if I were you. But maybe look into setting some boundries or guidelines/expectations and having them legalized. That is a tough one.

beth84 - Even I remember you! Here's to good things coming your way!

lisa – Sounds like everything went well for you on Sat. Rest up and relax!

prayin –I wish I had something to take the hurt away. I'm so sorry!

Karling – WOW! Impressive Beta…can’t wait to hear #2.

AFM – Back at work today after ET on Friday….3 transferred 2-8 cell and 1- 6 cell. Embryologist said again I make beautiful embryos. If that is true…why do none of them make it to 5 days? Last time we had 4 that did not make it, this time 8 that did not. Even though she told me not to get discouraged (the best 3 are inside of me snug as a bug in a rug) I am starting to doubt the quality of my eggs. Anyone know how to get better quality eggs, (without using a donor)? Anyone else had this happen over and over and still get a healthy baby on a 3 day transfer? I did the intralipid IV infusion and am doing Lovenex injections nightly (OUCH!) I really hope those things help me!

We're doing okay after our BFN. Not great yet, but okay. We're planning for FET in either January or April.

prayin - I am so sorry. It's so hard to try and try for something and have negative results. Take time to heal.

shelby - TWINS!!!!! CONGRATS!!!

kala - Sending darking dust your way!

iamhopeful - With our first IVF, we did a 3 day transfer of 3 embryos and have a DD from that cycle. With our second cycle that we just completed, I took the follistim and menopur starting on the same day (usually you wait a few days to start the menopur). We came out with better quality embryos this time. This second cycle was a 5 day transfer with BFN, so I prefer the 3 day transfer. :D GL with the 2ww.

Hi Katie and Iamhopeful - good to see you again! I haven't really kept up with anyone. After the last cycle I just needed some time off the boards. Katie -I'm so sorry about your BFN, and hope your husband is doing better. This whole process is so hard on us, our partners, and our relationships.

Shelby - TWINS! That's amazing - you must be over the moon.

Karling - congrats! That is a huge beta!

It's hard to catch up with what's going on with everyone, but I'll give it a try a little later. Lots of luck to the 2ww-ers!

Katie- Patience dust to you! Maybe ya'll shoud go on a hot date and try to put all this out of your minds.

iamhopeful-good luck with everything. sounds like you are doing everything you can for these embies to grow. Keep the PMA and they will get all snuggly. Good luck!

J&C-thanks for the dust! good luck with the next cycle. 2010 will be YOUR year!

Iamhopeful My cycle buddy...you need to be hopeful. Stop talking about how bad your embies are and what to do next when they told you they look good. You may be having triplets at this point for all you know!!! Inside you is better than in a dish anyway! PMA sister!
I think you and I are going to have one tough time this cycle after our disapointment last time. I am second guessing everything too. I keep worrying I am messing with implantaion as I lift a kid at my job, I do daycare, or cough or sneeze or move the wrong way. But I had the same job and did even more when I got PG with my DD's. And my RE said I was fine to lift kids today. I know I shouldn't worry, but I will anyway.
Hang in there. At least your beta is 2 days before me. This wait sucks!! :twisted:

I have been a HORRIBLE cycle buddy. I have been super busy but that is no excuse because we are all busy. I have been lurking because I can’t stand not knowing what is going on with you all but I should have been posting. Here is a stab at some personals – I know I am missing some. Sorry.

Lisa – I hope you are were able to relax more today. Sending good relaxing vibes. Use my mantra - Stress out, Baby in. =)

Syanna – I hear you on analyzing every little thing. One twinge and I think I am preg the next and I think I am getting my period, the next I figure is from all the meds.

Sancap – it won’t be long till you are the one with the baby bjorn. =) And since you have your baby after hers they will come out with an even cuter pattern and then your friend will be jelouse.

Wolfie – your ticker is sooo funny!

Statsgoddess – I know what you mean about the waiting. The 2 week wait was bruital and if everything goes well with my 2nd beta it will seem like forever till my us. Never thought I would say that I don’t like going into the office all the time and being sticked and stired. I just feel neglected.

Shelby – TWINS!!! OMG. So excited for you.

Kala – Welcome home. Glad your trip went well. Even better – 2 lines!!!! So happy for you, can’t wait to hear your beta #s.

Prayin – I am so sorry hun. I was hoping that we would be celebrating today. My heart breaks for you. What is next? I will be praying for you.

Katie – ((HUGS)) So sorry about your bfn. Hope you get some answers or at least some reassurance of what happens next at your apt.

Jayden- Deep breath in, deep breath out. Patients. I know that some women don’t get a + POAS until after their Beta. The wait is the worst isn’t it. Sending good thoughts your way.

Iamhopeful – I am sending you snuggly embie dust. I really hope this is your cycle. You only need one good one right?

J&C – I am so sorry this cycle didn’t work out for you. I had high hopes that you would be a momma. I guess this way your frosties get to snuggle into their rightful home earlier than expected. I wish you good luck on your FET.

All - OK so I feel really DUMB. Is my Beta super high? I am 12dp5dt. Are you all thinking twins? Can you tell from a beta number? The doc didn’t say anything except that they were wanting a number over 100.
