Sorry I've been MIA girls. I'm going to try to catch up!!

lisacb- Praying for a good fert report today. FIngers crossed!

PA_FA- Congrats!! What great news! Can't wait to hear your beta today!

Tess- Welcome! Hope you are doing ok on your 2ww. Only a 1ww left now!

Kamaile- When is your ultrasound? Tomorrow? I cannot wait to hear all about it! Waiting for that is almost as bad as the 2ww!!

Susielou- Welcome to this board. The 2ww really is torture but I found having a great group of ladies to share it with definitely made it easier! Best of luck to you!

rypell- So sorry your cycle was canceled. Thinking of you.

purple- Ultrasound today right?! So exciting!!

Bril- Glad to hear that everything is on track. I hear you about being tired. I have a really hard time staying awake in the evenings!

My update is that I'm counting down until my scan. It's Thursday morning. I feel like the wait for the ultrasound is taking so long! I don't know why I am nervous but I just am. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night with a bad stomach ache and it still hurts so that scares me. It's probably just something I ate but it's hard to not let my mind wander :roll: My only other symptoms have been I'm pretty tired and a little nauseas.

Better get to work. Hope this week flies by!

How accurate is the Clear Blue Easy test?? I took one at like 2am, I have insomnia like crazy so yes I was awake. It read PREGNANT!! I took the First Response tests Saturday and Sunday and there was a faint line. Do you think this could mean BFP?!???

Eshepherd- Your first beta is today right? I would guess that means BFP! I hope you have great numbers!

Lisacb- I hope you have a great fert report today. Fingers and toes crossed for you! :)

Kamaile- When is your first u/s? I can't wait to hear about it! :P

Susielou and Tess- Welcome! I just finished my 2ww. Yes it was torutre but I rented a lot of movies, read a lot of books and took a lot of naps! :mrgreen:

Pep- I have had weird tummy aches too. I am just assuming the best and that is my uterus growing! I'm sure your u/s will be wonderful!!!

AFM- I just got off the phone and my first beta was 426!!!! OMG! I am 12dp5dt. My second beta is scheduled for Thursday morning. I have to fly to Ireland tonight so I am definitely going to need a nap after all of this excitement today! I'll make sure to check in with you all when I land! Hugs and baby dust to all!

Kamalie- Congratulations!

EShepherd- good luck today and keep us posted!

Lisach- We all have our fingers crossed for a good fertility report today. Let us know results!

PaFa- fabulous news! Congratulations! I think the spotting might be from the progesterone suppositories, did you ask the nurse at your clinic?

I feel oddly fine and I wish I felt a bit more of something. Will not see Dr again until Fri.

Best of luck ladies!

Eshephard - 3 Hpts=BFP. Congrats. This board is getting some good news lately, which gives the rest of us much needed hope.

Kamaile - Try laying on a heating pad after the shot and do some massaging to help spread the oil. Also, put the syringe under armpit, or in bra, to help liquify it (makes it go in easier). Plus, I was told to push the med in slowly. Hope that helps. Two years ago, I warmed the PIO and my butt every night and I did not have any bumps.

Pep23 - Good luck on your Thursday scan. I know the time will go by slow...but it will come. I had cramping alot with my son all throughout my first trimester...I'm sure your fine.

Pafa - Wow...what a great beta. I forgot how many did you transfer? Maybe it's twins :lol:

AFM - Well ladies, I got my call today and was bracing myself for the worst. But...out of the 5 eggs, 4 of them fertilized. Woohoo. :lol: That is an 80% fert rate. I am over the moon. Plus they told me that they were all looking good and that this time I could do a 5dt. The cycle with my son I had 10 eggs, and 6 fertilized, But they also told me they were not doing very well and dividing too slow, which is why they had us do a 3dt (which by then I only had 3 poor ones left). I am a bit nervous of waiting for 5dt, because what if my embies will arrest earlier. I told them to give me a report tomorrow, and if any of them arrest, then I will insist on coming in tomorrow and do a transfer. I strongly believe my son would not have lasted 5 days in a petri dish and that he took off as soon as he was in the uterus (just a theory). But at this present moment I have a skip in my step and my PMA is back in full force :P

Lisacdp- great fert report! That's what I had for fert...4. They implanted 3. So maybe it's trips :shock: I would love twins but would just be over the moon with any healthy pregnancy. I don't really care if it's one, two or three. I'm just so happy. I hope my numbers double on thursday.

kamaile- Yes I did! Don't they hurt? I started using a heating pad on my butt for 5 min before and after the injection and that really helped. Once I got my 2nd Beta, my doctor had me stop the PIO, and start taking vaginal Prometrium instead. Thank god...I don't think my glutes couldn't handle it anymore!

Kamaile - the pio shots are giving me knots too. Are you laying down for the shots? That seems to help some. The heating pad and some massage after help too, but I still get knots. I have to be on them for another 4 weeks, but it will all be worth it.

Eshephard - congrats!

Lisadcb - great news on the eggs! I am so excited for you! I hope they grow well.

PA - wonderful news! I am so excited for you.


I go in for our ultrasound tomorrow! I am so excited!

Hi all

2ww is going by slowly but am working so helps to pass the time.

Excuse my ignorance but are the PIO shots progesterone support after transfer? I'm using pessaries and although they're a bit messy, I've had no problems with them.

Lisacdp - well done. Good luck with progress over the next few days.

PA_FA - a huge congrats to you.

All the very best to all the ladies with upcoming ultrasounds. How long after a BFP do you have an ultrasound?
