Hey all- Just wanted to give an update. Even though I went super early I still ended up waiting anxiously all day for the beta results. The nurse finally called a little while ago and said it was better than they expected and was 2244!!! So excited that it doubled the way it should. Now I have to keep waiting for the Ultrasound which is still 2 wks away and would be right at 7 wks along.

Cherry- sounds like you had a great beta too!! I'm soooo jealous that you have an ultrasound monday. Mine isn't scheduled until 5/4 because they said they want to make sure there's a heartbeat we can see. I cannot wait to hear about your ultrasound monday!

Holy twins Blair!!!!!!! That is awesome. This is it for you for sure. I can't believe it...I am almost as happy about your solid BFP as I will be my own! May 4th is logged in my calendar and I am anxiously waiting for your u/s. We are going to need lots of Wildcat gear for all our babies. :-)

Cherry- congrats to you as well.

Thanks for the dancing ladies... I am now 4 days late. But I am not surprised because I had the midcycle bleeding. When I went in for the sonohysterogram my one follie was at 18 and that was the week before last. I am sure I ovulated and that she will be here anytime now, or at least I hope so because the clock is ticking on having to cancel to avoid interfering with my Mid-May work trip.

Nancy/LYD10- my FET is a stimulated cycle. I take low levels of stims to make sure my body creates a follie, but other than that and progesterone there are no other meds (not even estrace unless my lining is thin prior to transfer, which it usually is). There is no suppression which means transfer is on CD 14 or 15. I am two weeks away from transfer whenever AF decides to show up. I am usually so regular, but all bets are off when you come off a fresh cycle! I went 30 days after my first fresh cycle and normally go 27. I have four 3day frosties and one 5 day frosty. Plan is to thaw the four, transfer three and grow the remaining one to blast and freeze it again with the other for a free natural cycle the RE decided to give me since I was conflicted over what to do with one or two lower quality embies.

hi Blissful - sorry to hear your AF is late. i know how you feel with the upcoming trip. i would be stressing, too. but you still have time - hopefully you can get the clock started soon and get it in just under the wire. and in the worst case you are just 30 days away from trying it again.

i am navigating a possible work trip myself, it hasnt been set yet - but hopefully in early may. my FET transfer date i set to june 7th, which is 7 weeks from now. i wanted to have a clear schedule afterwards to make sure i can take it easy. the earliest i could have had the transfer would have been may 31 but i decided to push it back by a week to have a clear weekend afterwards. part of me still thinks that my ectopic was due to not doing the full bedrest with the fresh cycle and then lifting my DS. i hate when docs give instructions that have no consistency or scientific evidence. some clinics prescribe bedrest, others dont. and how can you possibly expect me not to lift my DS? that's another difficult one. but they put these restrictions and in my head i now look back and beat myself up for not doing it properly since i got an ectopic.

anyway - sorry for my rant. thank you for reading :)

Crissy and SD- I cant believe you all are already so far along. It really does feel like just yesterday I was anxiously awaiting you all to post your beta results. Glad things have calmed down and are going smoothly for both of you.

Bliss- I cannot wait to start buying this little one (or these little ones) all kinds of UK gear. I will have to make sure we have gear for basketball season. Even though they may not be here at the beginning of the season Im sure they will be the biggest fans. Dont forget- as soon as you get that BFP and see yours Im sending a blue and white onesie your way.

AFM- Im getting nervous and freak out a little with every cramp I feel. My stomach has also been swollen the past few days and Im not really sure why. Its obviously way too early to start showing so whats up with that? Anyone know why this would happen? Did all of you who are pregnant have cramps early on- nothing serious just mild cramping off and on?

cherry- it makes me feel so much better knowing you are dealing with the same thing. Even though I am lucky enough that the weather is heating up and some of my summer tops of flowy...if I was wearing tighter clothes it would be obvious. I guess Im also lucky that my pants were a littie lose before now because they are fitting tighter than they used to. We are trying not to tell anyone until 12 wks but its not looking like that will work out if things keep progressing at this rate. We may have to tell close family members we see often just because they will start giving the look. Are you all telling everyone? Is this your first...I couldnt remember?

Blair - I had lots of crams and especially sharp pains because my ovaries were so swollen, sorry for TMI but gas and bowel movements would cause some awful pain as I had some OHSS too. So you should be fine :)
