So the increase was pretty great and dramatic! We still cannot conceive naturally because if the motility factor that should be over 60% or do IUI but that was a huge increase!

Cheri - this one is for you, so just change the 1dpt to 2dpt, etc... and 1day post tranfer equals 4dpo (post ovulation):
ER = ovulation day, day 0
3 Day Transfer:

4DPO 1dpt... Embryo is growing and developing
5DPO 2dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst
6DPO 3dpt... Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
7DPO 4dpt... Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
8DPO 5dpt... Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
9DPO 6dpt... Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
10DPO 7dpt... Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells & fetal cells
11DPO 8dpt... Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood today!
12DPO 9dpt... More HCG is produced as fetus develops
13DPO 10dpt... More HCG is produced as fetus develops
14DPO 11dpt... HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

I caved in and POAS, today I am 11DPO and I peed, using middle of the day, not holding for more than one hour pee. What do you think? It is a cheapo Walgreens stick. I am not getting my hopes up but it looked like a faint line...

For those of you asking about whether I triggered or not - I did. With 10,000 iui of Ovidrel. It was just that I don't think it worked. When I only got 10 eggs out of 18 follicles, and only 1 was mature enough to fertilize it made me question the effectiveness of the trigger. I POAS on Monday (4 days after trigger) when the hcg should have still been strong enough to pick up on a sensitive hpt. Nothing!!! So I think that I have a resistance to it and that it didn't work. Either way, it is out of my system so if I see a line, I'm golden.

Ryann - Praying like crazy for you, your dad and your family. Hope everything works out and that you are able to relax at least a little. Surely dealing with 30 12 year olds would keep anyone sane?? OMG I so feel for you and all the stress you have right now. Hang in there girl.

Thanks for the time line Rio. BTW - when I go home, I am totally looking for a blinkie of a girl wearing a itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny yellow polka dot bikini!!! and I am sure that you are still hot even if you dont feel it at the moment :D

Sonya - Why cant you be on the East Coast because then you would already know how many you have in there and I could stop hitting refresh on the site even though I know its too early. :) Are there any other girls on the East coast other than me here in Florida???

OK, so I know that I am totally off my rocker and really have nothing new to say, but after Sonya told me that the uterus is like sticky peanut butter and knowing that I look like a big, fat bowl of jelly right now - all that I can think about is my little stubborn embie hanging out, enjoying a PBJ sandwich (with the crusts cut off) while he waits for his turn to jump in. I know Im crazy, but whatever it takes to pass the time right? LOL!!!!

Cheri...I'm in the East, eastern time zone anyhow, Ohio. lol Enjoy that pbj sandwich! lol

Jennie...Dont you worry everyone will come...no one ever RSVP's and it drives me nutso, too. How old is your DS? Mine just turned 2 in September. You are 1/2 way through...YOU CAN DO THIS! PMA PMA! Are you going to poas?

Ester...Break the rules! Rules are meant to be broken! Maybe it will change your luck! You must join in the poas frenzy! lol ::twist:: :lol:
Question for you...and answer honestly please. My other brother and I are fighting because he thinks that the only reason I keep FB updated on our whole IVF journey is for sympathy. Have I ever posted anything like ...."I am sooo sad, I want to crawl into bed and never come out again." Anything that sounds like a pathetic plea for sympathy?! Even though that may be how we feel sometimes...I have always simply said things like..."It was negative...but that is okay...I believe in Christmas miracles...and it WILL work for us." Since deciding to be open and honest on FB and trying to bring about Infertility Awareness and openess...I have gotten nothing but wonderful private messages from people I didnt even know who were struggling (even from friends of friends)...letting me know that my positive attitude and my willingness to share with others has inspired them to share their journey with their friend, their mother, their sister, etc. and that they no longer feel sooo alone. I have alway kept my messages on a positive note...because that is me. I "thought" and feel like I am purposely always posting that we are doing something fun and that life is just great (especially right after my miscarriage)...acting like it is ok...acting like it is no big deal...so that people do NOT feel sympathy in any way shape or form. Or is he right? Do I come across as a pathetic 42 yr old still trying to get pregnant and that I look absolutely ridiculous and that if God wanted me to be pregnant then I would be by now. Do you know that he actually believes that I made up both of my miscarriages just to get sympathy?! Sorry for the rant...but I'm just steaming right now. :evil:

Rio...That is one heck of a fabulous line at 11dpo. Twins or more for sure! My line at 11dpo is never that dark with fmu, cheapie tests, and hours of holding it! My 11dpo test never show up on camera. I can just see the smile on your face right now...I bet DH is in a better mood now. lol Yep, I'd bet anything on twins or more.

Sonya...You are going into your u/s right now and I'm just sooo excited for you! I hope you post soon!

Karin...Yeah, it's kinda weird that I'm going on my 4th attempt since August.

Amesy...a Thanksgiving Day u/s...very exciting! Not much longer now!

Thanks Tammy

DS will be 2 in December. I was using this party as my distraction but it all seems to stress me out even more..UGH.

I didn't POAS last time and I'm not sure about this time. Part of me wants to and the other part says just leave it to the beta on Monday. DH is against POAS....
