Hi all,

Sorry I've been MIA. I've had a crazy week. I was at a birth conference all weekend which was amazing, and I've had 2 births in the meantime.

Katie - keeping everything crossed for a great beta today! Keep the PMA. I know you're still preggers!

SD - SOOOOOo exciting - oh my goodnes...what's that like not taking any meds??? Weird! Can't wait til I get there with you!

WeHaveHope - way to look on the bright side of things and good for you for taking care of your marriage. I hate all this abstinence crap..lol.

Blair - go follies goooooo!!!! I just know you're going to have a great ER and lots of great embies to choose from!

Nicole - my 2ww buddy! Don't be losing hope!!! Signs of PMS are also signs of early pregnancy...and yes, progesterone will keep AF away until you stop it. So enjoy being PUPO!!! I just know your little one is snuggled down nice and warm and growing in his/her new home for the next 9months!

AFM - I'm super concerned because I had my embryo transfer on Wed. Then Thursday night I was up all night at a birth - so much for bedrest! Then I was at a conference all weekend which is mainly just sitting around...then was up again all night on Saturday night for another birth. I'm so worried that my crazy sleep/work schedule could stop my little ones from implanting. GRRRR.. I hate it when work gets in the way of my fertility plans. But then I keep thinking about there is no scientific evidence to say that bed rest makes any difference, and people get pregnant all the time while working crazy hours, so hopefully it won't make a difference. As for symptoms, it's different this time again! Only one or two hot flashes, whereas last time I was getting them all the time. Also super hungry and oh hello constipation - I've never struggled with constipation...Gotta love the progesterone. I'm thinking that the symptoms are different this time because I'm on a higher dose of estrogen?? Oh man, I hate the 2ww!!

I only have one birth left and then I"m officially retiring as a doula and onto my midwifery clinical placement studies. And I have 2 essays to write this week. Hoping that will keep me busy and my mind off of the 2ww, but who am I kidding??? Anyone want to join me in Crazytown????

Love to all and LOTS and LOTS of babydust!!!

Hi,
I'm new to the message board here. I hope I can join in. A friend from another board suggested I try this site. A little about me: I'm 37, DH 38. DD (15) DS (18), DSS (10). During a not healthy 1st marriage I had a TL. Ten years later I marred my wonderful DH. 12/21/09 I had TR. 2/2/10 I got a BFP ended 2/12/10, ep. Nothing since. We started IVF treatment this month. My states from this cycle were 13 eggs retrieved, 11 matured, 8 fertilized (ICSI), 3 grade 4 (8 cell) transferred on Saturady, 3/26/11(3 day transfer). Found out today 3 didn't grow any more and 2 blast developed (grade 3) on day 5 (today). I'm on last day of bedrest and have been having cramping since yesterday in private area (don't know what abbreviation to use). I'm to go Wed to have progesteroine level checked and blood pregnancy test on 4/9. Any support, guidance, or advice would greatly be appreciated.

Hi ladies!

Sd- congrats! Thats fabulous that you're off the meds, what I relief. It'll make a big difference on your emotions to be off the progesterone. I'm very happy for you that all is professing perfectly.

Indigo - don't worry you're PUPO. Your little ones had time to implant on the first day. You said it yourself there's no clinical evidence that bed rest truly has an impact on implantation. Those babies want to be there with you so they are in and holding on tight.

Skate - welcome! Sounds like your right on track. The cramping is normal and could be a sign of implantation. Keep positive, you're little ones are in the best place they can be!

Katie - I'm so sorry for your news. Please dont hesitate to vent here with us. One of the reasons we are ALL on here is because we need someone to talk to and just listen to us. I will keep you in my prayers. Be strong and Know we're here for you.

AFM - I went in for blood work today. I got a little bit ago and the nurse said I will be doing an antagonist approach for this cycle. I will be on BC starting tomorrow and have a nurses consult scheduled for next Thursday. I will keep you all updated.

Kaite-I was really hoping for you that you had a slow starter. I'm sooo sorry that things didn't turn out this time. So many have said that your baby comes when he/she is ready. Know that he/she IS planing the right time to make an entrance, and when that day comes you'll know that it is even more perfect than this time would've been. I hope you'll find the strength to get through this moment so you can prepare for what's next. We are all pulling for you. It will happen.

Katie,
So many on here can so relate tonight to what you're going through. Oh my, it's terribly hard to accept the news and you can never help but wonder why...I probably already analyzed this SO much for all of us but I don't like seeing any of my IVF sisters hurting. I am truly sorry that this cycle didn't work, but know your persistance is going to pay off and this will only make you stronger!

You're certainly in our thoughts tonight!

Well ladies I go for my second beta tomorrow. I'm pretty nervous. Last night I dreamed it came back that I wasn't pregnant after all. :( Almost screwed up my meds tonight. Forgot I was supposed to double up on PIO from here on out. Had to do a second shot! To top it all off, I made hubby mad at me - I yelled at him for leaving dirty dishes in the sink. :evil: Think I need a good night's sleep!

Katie my dear- I am so very sorry for your results. I know that this is very tough and you have been through so much already. Much love, hugs, and prayers to you tonight.

SD- congratulations on your early graduation!

Blair- yes the win did make me smile. I also will win the pool I am in when UConn gets beat on Saturday. The extra cash will help pay for our FET. :D :D :D

Ladies- thanks for all your supportive thoughts on my SIL's pregnancy. Much love to you all!
