nwquiz- I was able to see the pictures and those are definitely BFPs :D

heidi- Wonderful news! You'll be PUPO soon!

texasgal- I didn't feel a whole lot during stims this time, and I have some positive HPTs...still don't know my beta.

margi- Thank you so much for your advice. The cramping is now significantly better, but you know we all stress about every little thing. I want to get a beta sooner, but my clinic is adamant about waiting at least 12 days post transfer. The nurse yesterday was frustrated that I insisted on an estrogen and progesterone check at 7dp5dt. Congrats on those babies! You are definitely an inspiration!

Just wanted to give a quick update. We had our first US today and found out we are expecting triplets. We have 2 sacs...one of which contains identical twins. The MD said we were in the lucky 1% of people who have identical twins. he said it was my fault and not theirs. All 3 babies looked great and had strong heartbeats. We are obviously still in shock for now and hoping the babies continue to grow and thrive like they seemed to have done so far. I go back in 2 wks on may 18 for US #2. MD did say that 25% of the time one or more of the babies will reabsorb in the first trimester, but he said for now it looks like we should be expecting 3.

Come on! Get started! :D Image

Sorry if i left anyone behind...you are all in my thoughts.... :D

AFM- I patiently wait for my Tuesday u/s appt! :D ...."Happy" has got something called ..in plain translation "hair eater" I don't know how to say it in english :( Its a kind of a bug (you can't see it with bare eyes) and anyway, we are giving her these pills which...I think...made her lost her appetaite for food and play :( I feel sorry for her :( she sleeps most of the time and doesn't want to play "fetch" with me or eat her food or treats! I called the VET this morning to report and he told me that the pills ...besides vomiting...(I am Sorry for the details in this) there should be no other side effects. but he suggested that we keep her off meds for a couple of days see if there's a change in her attitude. If yes then he will change the brand and give her something else to treat that bug. Btw he told us that every time we touch her we sould wash our hands with "Betaisodona" b/c this bug is contageous!. Oh well, I hope she gets her energy back soon and I won't even mind her eating my beautifull Ortanzia flowers...hm, well not really...but I really want her to find her appetide and energy back soon! for the mean time she is Strictly not allowed to get into the house..at least not until the bug is off and she gets her shots. Catching something from her now is the last thing I want! I want to keep on being healthy for my FET. So bottom line, Happy is not happy today :( ... I had a girls night out last night (the regular wednesday one 8) first we went for sushi and then we went to our favourate place...again...where we had wine accompanied with a cheese and fruit platter. mmmm my favourate! :D we sat outside (my friends are smoking...) and the weather was lovelly! I only had half a glass of wine and my friends were teasing me for not drinking and wishing me not to drink at least for the next nine months :D I wish! we had laughs and I got back home at 1am :D ...DH had a colleage/friend over to watch this soccer game and he was cooking for his friend so no cooking for me last night...the game finished at 11:45 so he was sleeping by the time I got home...so I was very quite not to wake him up..he has a difficulty in going back to sleep after waking up...quite the opposite of me! :D I wake up Very easily and I sleep back Very easily! :D...so this morning we where telling our news from last nite and he goes "baby I am so glad you are having fun going out with the girls but honestly, I can't wait for you to get pregnant and we spent every night for the next 9 months home on our couch cuttling while watching movies and waiting for our family to grow!"...I found that SO sweet and It got me crying first thing in the morning! I love him SO much for being in my life!..I sound silly but I don't mind realy...love is something one shouldn't hide and express it in every way! ...Boy! I can't wait for our parenthood life to begin!! we have so much love to give and we cannot wait to give it to our baby/ies! :D Image

...OMG!!! I talk toooooo muchhhhhh Sorrryyyy for taking all this space for my post!!....Baby dust to us all!!!! Image

Dallas- dont let signs get to you. i have nothing but energy this time. nothing of the ordinary except no cramps at all which is odd. anyway are you going to poas? come on now poas for us ladies? join the club.
Anton, Blissfulcs, Blairwh58,Tammy,and Heidi thanks so much. now waiting for beta tomorrow.
Blairwh58- Dont let the doctor make you feel guilty. Think about it; even if you had just transfered the two blasts like he wanted, one on them would have still split if that is what it was going to do. so you are just the 1% that are super blessed. and if its meant to be it will be or nature will take care of everything else. good luck. pray for good health and healthy babies.

Anton- your posts are uplifting, keep them coming! Who cares how long! Sorry that happy is not happy and hope he gets better real soon! Love def should be expressed and not hidden especially during this time in our lives!! Image for the info about the blinkies!!

Dallas- don't feel down! It could be too early!! Praying for you! PMA!!

Nwquiz- Tell us your beta when you know!

Blair- I agree about having put three in, god's will is his way so it would have split anyway and he apparently wanted you to be the mommy of triplets!

Moorebaby- Thinking of you!

Blair - congrats on the triplets!!! That is awesome that they are all looking healthy too - so happy for you! Are you in shock a bit?

Heidi - good luck with your transfer today!! congrats on being pupo :)

Anton - sorry your doggie is sick and not so happy these days :( I'm sure he'll be back to himself in no time - especially if he gets to hang out with you! Your DH just sounds like such a sweetheart!

Dallas - don't get too down yet - it is still very early. Wait another day or two before you POAS again and I bet you'll have your BFP!

Faithful and nwquiz - good luck with your betas!

AFM - It's been a rough week, but I am starting to feel a bit better. My RE did call me after I sent him an email as well so I got to talk through our past cycles and what he thinks about going forward with treatments. He says based on how the past cycles have gone, he puts our chances of conceiving with my eggs at about 1-5% per cycle. He did say that the egg and embryo quality looked best on this last cycle. With donor eggs our chances would go up to about 50%. So yesterday I talked to the egg donor coordinator to find out more about that. It is a tough decision to switch but ultimately I know that we can't just keep doing IVF cycles with only a 1-5% success rate. We still had 1 more cycle left that we had paid for so I am waiting to find out what type of credit they would give me on the donor cycle. As long as the costs are not too ridiculous, we will probably go that route. I need to have some bloodwork and tests done prior to getting into a donor cycle. I've been looking through their donor bank and most of the donors that I would consider are currently matched so I need to find out when they would be available again. Assuming all goes well, I'll probably do a mock cycle in June (with estrogen only) and then hopefully the real cycle in either July or August.

Dallas- just wanted to tell you its still to early.But even the addict in me did not get a true positive on 10dpo. it was after the test dried and you open it up then you see that second line. keep testing and that line will start appearing. some ppl see a true line at 10dpo which would be tomorrow for you. so dont give up its just early.
