AFM- I'm now 4dp5dt. The 2ww is killing me. I POAS'd last night. Still showing the trigger. I've never tested to see when the trigger is out before. I'm hoping it's out soon! I'm very crampy which makes me nervous, but no bleeding. Last cycle I started spotting 5dp5dt. The clinic told me not to worry, but I wonder if my progesterone and estrogen were too low. I asked the RE and he didn't want to change my PIO or add estrogen this cycle. He just said if I spot I should call and go in to have levels checked....but wouldn't that be too late :?
I know the 2WW is dreadful, it took 9 days for the trigger to exit my system. I know this because I POAS & it was negative (3 days after ET). That was confirmation that the trigger was gone & I could take a pregnancy test in a few more days....which I did & it was a faint positive :P

give it a few more days before taking a hpt. Good luck :D

Ester - I am so sorry. Have you thought of a mild D&C to get your uterus nice and sticky? I know it has another name but I forget, Lou and Leora did them before this BFP. Maybe it can help them stick? Do you have frosties or will you do a fresh? Best of luck to you and lots of hugs!

Ester- I was hoping and praying that the next time I logged on to read that I would see your miracle post. I'm so sorry hun. I don't get it. You are young and healthy and had a great cycle. I know you have male factor, have you considered donor sperm at all to see if it improves you embie quality? You get a good number of eggs and would have enough to fertilize 1/2 with donor sperm to see if sperm quality alone is your problem. I'm just heartbroken for you and trying to think of anything that might improve a future outcome. Big hugs my friend.

Hello there Ladies!

I thought I would update since I am new here and just have started posting. I post on my my dr's message boards but it I need to learn to branch out. For people that dont know me I actually put most of my story in my signature, so hope that helps. I am on what.... day 6 of stims and have a appt on Monday to check my follies. I cycled in January with a BFN so we are doing it again. I actually got ALOT of sleep last night. I didnt /couldnt sleep for like 37 hours. I think it is one of the meds I am on. I wasnt even a little tired until 35 hour mark...strange. Feeling a little tender in my tummy but other than that all is good. Someone please let me know how all of you can add all these tickers and pictures and cartoons. I wanta do it toooooooooo!

Nicksgam~ Congrats on the double Beta

Moorebaby~ My heart goes out to you. I honestly didnt know a person could cry as much as I did. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Lily~ sorry about your cancelled cycle. Keep us updated

Sunshine 1576~Agree about Kate's dress. Not really very fancy for a Princess!

Anton~ Love SHEPARDS PIE! How was lunch with parents? Why not go to London even if you are preggo? I dont think it is bad
I WILL do the AF dance for ya! Not really that good right now with the dancing part with my swollen belly from med's but its the effort that counts right?

Dallas~ You will know Sunday right on embies...please let us know ..inquiring minds want to know!

AFM~ I remember the 2 week wait.. HARD. Keep your head up and stay busy!

Lauren~ I agree with babydreams on the suppositories. My doctor would do the same.

Blaqdymun- Congrats on the double beta!

If I left out anyone I am sooooo SORRY. I will try to keep up. Happy Sunday all!!!

texasgal39 ~ You can create a ticker through Lilypie and once you create the ticker click on PseudoHTML, UBBCode and BB Code for forums and then paste into your sig.

Hey Texasgal :D

For a newbie, you keep up pretty well. Thanks for the congrats!

Stiming was uncomfortable for me as well. I was bloated & felt like I was carring a 5lb bag of onions in my tummy. I was glad when that was over. Nice hearing from you. Ttyl.

HI Lauren - i noticed from ur signature that the only BFP u got was from an FET, so yes it seems that we are of thoses who are not receptive after stimulation, and i think yes go for it and try frozen cycles, im sure it's gonna work for you :)
good luck

Fruit/Babydreamz - I was going to aak the same thing....insert Viagra up there? My stupid ins covers 5 cycles whether frozen or fresh. They count cancelled cycles too. I had 3 fresh, 1 frozen, and 2 cancelled. They say that is 6 and have denied my appeal since they say they gave me an extra one. This is the GIC insurance for state employees. My husband can switch July 1st but I have to see if the other plans would offer IVF before doing so. I am also looking into getting ins through my job. If I pay for a FET it's $3,000, and I don't have it right now. I owe my clinic $1,000 as is from my deductible and my yearly freeze fee. There is a website called Arc reproductive that finances IVF. With interest I would pay 100+ per month for 3 years to get a FET. It would suck paying that bill every month if it were a BFN. Plus I would not get approves for financing since my debt to income ratio is too high. I would need to ask a family member to get the loan for me and I don't want to right now. Basically I am in a not moving forward situation, and my clinic is probably going to throw my embryos away from my lack of paying the $1,000 bill lol!!! I am going to talk to RE Wed to see what he thinks about anything.
