Lisa10 - I am SOOOOOO proud of you! I vowed never to POAS again after last time, but have to admit it is extremely tempting and my Beta is on Wednesday! My DH has been saying NO POAS! But then found out yesterday he is leaving town until Wed. so now no one to keep me honest :oops: So stick with me Lisa, we can do it! I am feeling nothing that makes me think I am pregnant.

We are going to need to work together. This is soooo hard! I just want to know either way. I just keep imagining the phone call from the nurse, "Your Pregnant" or "Sorry, but it was negative." Now I have a bad cold too and am doing noting to treat it since I hope I am PG. If it turns out to be a neg, I am going to be mad that I had to suffer so long for nothing!

I'm worried...

I was having some mild (early) pregnancy symptoms early last week...headaches, night sweats, sore boobs, nausea, twinges, etc...and since last Wednesday or Thursday they've just stopped! I'm freaking out! With my son I didn't have ANY symptoms (I just never felt hungry), but with this baby I began having these symptoms early and now they've suddenly vanished!

Has anyone out there ever had this happen and the pregnancy been ok? I've contacted my RE's nurse and she's going to try and fit us in tomorrow for an ultrasound to see if there is a sack...I'm going crazy! I had two eggs on a 5dt, and my beta was 1148, 14 days after transfer.

Any advice?

Lisa10 - I would take "Sorry it is negitive" over " Well your beta is really really low, so we will need you to come back in a couple of days to recheck" (and then have it decrease)! That is the worst!

Someone told me once that a cold can be a sign of pregnancy because being pregnant can cause your immune system to be low....So here's to hoping this cold is around for a great reason!

Sounds like you have many small kids you watch and 2 DD's from what I have read but try to rest and take care of yourself.

NO POAS! NO POAS! NO POAS! Be strong with me!

BEI - Good luck with the new RE...I have heard it can make a real difference. I was told I am at the best RE in my area so I am not sure what other options I have without driving 5 hours away! Best of luck to you!

Hi ladies - as im writing this, i am choking in my own tears. As hard as I'm trying to hold it in and be strong...I can't. My heart hurts. But I didnt want to leave this place w/out saying thank you for being supportive and allowing me to vent. I'm just not understanding why certain things happens the way they do. Why someone like me, who truly just wants a baby of her own has to go through all this, and still nothing. Where some out there don't even want children, and keeps having them.

Good luck to the rest of you ladies. Bye.

Syanna- I'm so sorry for your news. There are no words to say how bad I feel for you. :cry: On the radio joke today a single women was joking about how terrible it would be to be pregnant. I thought if she only knew what some women would go through to be that lucky. But your time will come for your family, somehow. You will be in my prayers wherever your journey brings you next.

((((((((((((((((((((((syanna)))))))))))))))))))))))))))) oh hun i am so sorry!! i dont know why its so hard for us to have what is so easy for what seems like everyone else. its really not fair! i am here for you if you want to talk/ vent. :(
hopefully in your follow-up they will have an understanding as to what happened, and you will be able to continue on to a new successful BFP next time! i know nothing i say can help, but sometimes it just takes a few times to get everything right. good luck sweetie.

tonya holy moly 2nd beta batman!! i'm guessing TWINS!! :D :D

teachermom i'm thinking of you today just so ya know :)

lisa and iamhopeful you girls are cracking me up!! you have amazing willpower and patience...both of which i believe will come in handy when you are up all night changing diapers in 8+ months with your babies!! :D

turtle...I don't know about that. I think I am going to go absolutley crazy. For the last three days I have had a little brownish spotting. Not much. At first I thought "yeah, implnataion bleeding!" But now I am loosing hope and dying for the beta. POASing sounds good right now to end the agony, but then I can't trust the results to that anyway. So again, I will wait! :evil:

Syanna - I am so sorry :cry: . I know how you feel getting those dreaded results, but please don't give up, Sweetie. If you need to, take some time off and try to clear your mind. Between my m/c and this cycle, I did things that I wanted to do whether it was relax in the bath tub, read a book, or go shopping for the day just to keep my sanity. It's not over by any means. You are a special lady and HE will bless you no matter what. I know it's hard, but please be patient and your dreams will come true very soon. Love, Shel

Bei - Good luck with your new RE!

Tonya - I'm guess you have twins @ least.... you may even be joining the ranks of triplets with Stats! Congrats!

bei-good luck in Chicago! This will be a great change for you!

Lisa and Iamhopeful-
good job ladies, keep being strong!!

mharrell-
i dont know what to say. Ive read that the cramps are suppose to stop. Im not feeling anything like i did last week, same as you. But there is no worry, they are suppose to go away. Do you still feel like not eating a lot? That is the only sympton I have...that and drinking tons of water. Let me know what you find out....dont worry it is normal. Did you take an HPT? That is great you get a u/s to make sure...let us know how things go. Im prayin for you little bean(s).

Tonyacheek-girl...you got to tell us ur beta dates?!?!?! If those numbers were at 14 and 16 dpo then that is high. That would be so exciting if you have twins!! When is your ultrasound?

Syanna-good luck darling with your future prospects to motherhood. it will come before you know. Im so sorry dear! I praying for you and DH.

Hey Ladies- I won't be able to find out my sono date until my third beta which will be on Wednesday. We would be thrilled for twins, I just be so scared financially with daycare. My first beta was thursday, at #488, then second beta was today Monday #2000. I'll let you know next week what the outcome is :)

Um. Could be 3. Sometimes people get twins only tranferring 1. :P


Bei - Hi. I'm in Chicago, too! Where did you end up at?

Lisa and Iamhopeful - You're both fantastic. Hang in there and don't POAS. You can do it.

syanna - **HUG** $@#&! This is so unfair. I was really rooting for you! Your attitude gave me a whole lot of PMA after my BFN. I hoped I'd never get the chance to return the favor.
