Zdia- Try to keep your head up despite the negative test this morning. I have been on a many a board where people didn’t start getting a positive HPT until just before the beta…so you still have awhile. I know it sucks seeing the negative every time you POAS, but just try to stay positive. If the levels aren’t high enough yet the HPT wont be able to detect it. I know with the FET they also say it takes a little longer for the HCG to build up and be at detectable levels. You are PUPO so keep enjoying that. Like ive told my friend before- youre doing everything you can right now so you have no reason to think it didn’t work.

Cwehrs- Good Luck today at the ER!! I cant wait to hear the updates on how it went so keep us posted.

SD- Im jealous of your Hawaii vacation. We were planning on going to California a week or so after the ET but Im not sure if we should or not. I know itll be nice to relax and get away for a little while, but I keep questioning whether going then is a bad idea or not. Im glad you get to live it up and enjoy your BFP with virgin drinks on the beach. Have a great trip.

To_have_fun- Hope to hear good news from the donor today. Keep us posted on what you find out.
Indigofire- You caved in and bought the tests…I think you should take one (that’s pee pressure for you). I think your daughter is right and you are preggo! Good luck!!!

Katieb- How exciting that you get to move everything up a day!! One day less of waiting is great.

Kyleen81- I love your positive attitude and your ticker. I have a feeling you are right and this little one is sticking tight in there. Cramps sounds like a good thing so stay positive and keep us posted when you POAS.

LYD10- Im so anxious for you today. Good luck!!! Bring back another BFP to get the good luck going. Don’t let the cramps fool you- PIO can give you feelings of a false negative.

Crissylove- When is the official beta??

AFM- Cant we speed up time just a week or two?? Im past anxious and just ready to get moving. Watching everyone on here start testing makes me want to skip over to next month so I can test too. Good luck to anyone I left out.

Hi. I am new to this forum. Just had my ER yesterday. in alot of pain today. My E2 was over 8000 so we will have to cryo all and have the ET next month. I am a bit disappointed but I am glad the doctor is watching out for my health. I definitely do not want to end up with OVarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome. The ER was quite rough. In order to retrieve they ended up having to go through my belly instead of vaginally. Ouch, I am very sore today. We ended up with 28 follicles, 25 eggs retrieved in total and only 19 of the 25 were mature enough to fertilize. I got the call today and 18 of the 19 eggs fertilized :)
Now just waiting to see how many make it. Please say a prayer for us.
Best wishes to all.

Ok...so I love the idea of having a pregnancy ticker so I added it. I love that my little peanut is the size of a poppy seed right now.

Zdia - I am so sorry for the neg HPT, I'm sure the beta will be different. You've actually made me really rethink POASing. Because it's much harder to keep PMA when you've had a neg HPT. ARGH I wish we could just look into our uteruses (uteri?) and see if they've stuck and watch them grow.

I had a dream last night that I woke up, so I woke within my dream but I was still sleeping. And I was having leg cramps and I said to myself, I hope I don't have leg cramps the whole way through this pregnancy. And then I really woke up with no leg cramps. I'm so hoping that was a good sign from my subconscious!!!

Yesterday I was convinced I wasn't pregnant. Today I woke up feeling pregnant. Up, down, up, down goes this CRAZY carousel.

Is it just me, or is it next to impossible to get any productive work done during this time? I feel like it's all I think about and trying to get anything accomplished is out of the question. Any suggestions for being more productive during this time?

So looking forward to hearing how it went with the ER cwehrs and the test Lyd! Keeping everything crossed for you!

Welcome to the board Wehave hope!!! WOW!!! What an amazing retrieval! That's an amazing number and an amazing number that fertilized!!! Will you be freezing at day 3 or day 5? With that number hopefully day 5 so you know which ones are really strong!

Oh man, I can't imagine how painful it was to go through your belly! That must have been rough. Take it easy. Put your feet up and relax. You deserve it after making so many beautiful eggs!

My E2 was way over 8000 but we still transferred on the same cycle. Is this a normal protocol? I've never heard of it...but every clinic is different.

Sending lots of baby dust your way!

Thanks for the kind words and the baby dust :)
Not sure about the protocol but my RE felt very uncomfortable with transferring with such a high E2. He felt that I was at high risk for developing OHSS. I have read about it alot and it is very dangerous. Women have been put in the hospital for this. Not the way I want to go. He said I should let my body rest and then have the ET next month. I think we will do day 5 cryo. The nurse called me today and said the lab will cryo at either day 5 or 6. I will find out how many embabies made it on March 3rd. :shock:

i think your RE made the right call. the uterus environment is also not very good with such high E2. you might just end up waisting the embies if you were to transfer them now. does your clinic have good FET success rates? as long as that's good - you are better off doing a frozen.

Wehavehope - Welcome to the board. Congrats on all the fertilized embies. My clinic does the same thing quit a bit. if E2 levels are high they won't transfer and will have to do a FET later on. FET's can be better sometimes because your body is on less drugs. FX'd for a lot of good frosties that you can use later on.

zida - nothing is final until you get the beta. hang in there. im with you on never seeing a positive. it will be 6 yrs in april that we have been trying and not one positive.

blairwh58 - i wish we could speed up time. i would go straight till 2 weeks from today when i will get my final beta test.


AFM - donor triggers today and ER is on Saturday. Will find out then how many little eggos we get. Can't wait.

They have really good FET success rates. But still a bit disapointed. Good luck on your test. I wish you the best. I am going to go to bed for a while. In quite a bit of pain after yesterdays ER. I was not expecting this but I pray it pays off with a buautiful, healthy baby.

Tammy - Thank You!! it will be a very surreal moment if i see that one positive hpt. just hoping i can get there.

I can't believe it will be 2 weeks from today, that i will have my final beta test. kind of cool im in the 2ww and haven't even gotten to ER. My clinic test on day 11 and day 13 past ER.

Wehavehope- Welcome and congrats on all those embies! You should have lots of good ones to choose from next month! I know it sucks to have to put ET off, but better safe than sorry when it comes to your health.

Zdia- remember, it's not over until it's over. A BFN right now means absolutely nothing. Do something nice for yourself and try not to get too down.

AFM- ER went pretty well today. We only got 3 eggs, but the RE said they all looked perfect. Of the 5 we got last time, 2 were fragmented, 1 had problems with the nucleus, and the other 2 were "cloudy". So the RE is really happy with these 3 "perfect" eggs. Everyone keep your fingers crossed that they all fertilize and we get a couple of embryos to put back this time around! On a side note, all three came from the right side this time! I couldn't believe it. The right ovary FINALLY decided to get in the game. LOL!

Hi Everyone!!

Got beta back today and it was 178!! My DH and me are thrilled. Thanks so much for all your well wishes. Couldn't have taken this journey without all of you guys in my corner. Now, I'm sprinkling all the baby dust in the world all of you guys' way.

We-have-hope. Welcome. That was some awesome egg making I have to say, even if you had to be tortured to get to them. It'll be worth it in the end. With those kind of numbers you should have a positive outcome.

Fun-(Chris :wink: ) good luck with the ER on Sat. Congrats on being PUPO ahead of time.

Cwehrs-I'm so overjoyed for you about getting the egg quality you wanted this go around. In this game any good thing is cause for celebration. It's the little celebrations all the way to the end that gets us through. It's must be a relief to know that right ovary's got some fire power left in her too I'd imagine. Keeping my fingers crossed for ET.

Zdia-I'm holding out hope that you get an unexpected surprise on beta day and praying for you daily.

Indigo-Leg cramps are a good sign and so are the vivid dreams I've been having them on an off this week.

LYD10-I hope you got the good news. Praying for you too.
