Dear friends,
Still feeling a bit out of it because of the Vallium. Will post more later. All went very well. We transferred two frosties which thawed very well one large well expanded Blast-4BB and one intermediate Blast-2BB. Did want to share photos of our babies. Thank God, they are finally home. Praying that they snuggle in for the next 9 months. Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers. Going to take a nap now.

Ladies I just wanted to pop in and let you all know:

Image

I am cautiously optimistic. My beta is super low at 57. At least I think it is. The doc says not to worry, we tested a little early and he was happy with anything over 50 - and he has seen women go to full term and their first beta was less than 30. So we will repeat the beta on Monday 10/03. Thank you all for your support. Back in constant prayer for my beta to double. For now I am enjoying the thought of being pregnant. I have never had a BFP ever!! I am tempted to run out and get a pregnancy test just to see what it looks like when it is positive! It hasn't even sunk in. I guess it will become real once my beta doubles. It can still go so many ways from here! But for now, I am pregnant!!

God is so good!! Lots of love, will be back for personals later!

We- WooHoo!!!! So how does it feel for you to be pregnant :lol: I can't wait to hear the beta results. Do you go in 1 week for an estrogen/progesterone test? and then beta in 2 weeks? I know that some clinics are different than others.

Fvrogers- Congrats! Yeah!!!!! And you should totally go get a HPT and just pee on it so that you get the visual of being prego- It would be fun!!!!!! I am so excited for you, especially with this being the first BFP for you!!!!! I got goosebumps reading your post!

I need to go through all of the posts again because I've totally lost track of who is where, what, etc..... so YEAH for all of you that are PUPO and can't wait to hear about the beta's for those that are about to take them...we have several within the next week- how exciting!

And for those of us in waiting mode.....geez, it sucks waiting, but our bodies need to rest and we want them prepared for our little ones! So now, since we are at the end of Sept, I am just waiting for AF to visit and then I go in for the Day3 bloodwork to make sure I'm normal (HA! If they tell me I'm normal, that would be the first...hehehehe)and here is praying that my thyroid # looks good when they do the bloodwork- I've only been on the thyroid meds for maybe 3 weeks or so(my Endocrinologist just upped the dosage a week ago). I have no idea how long it will take for the meds and my body combined to regulate that number..... anyways, so they will do the bloodwork on Day3, then if all is well, I would start my BCP's and then it would be 3 weeks later when I would start shooting myself...woo hoo! Who thought I would ever hear myself say that I was excited about getting shots! That is my biggest yuckiest fear in the world- the last cycle the first shot took me 4 hours of hysterical crying, and then I asked the neighbor(nurse) to give me the shot, and thanks to the miracle numbing cream I didn't even feel it-good times! But this time, it's different, no stress about the shots, I just want to get started because that means I'm closer to holding my babies in my arms!

So yeah for the weekend! I sorta have off today (I officially have it off, but have been working most of the morning), and need to start prepping for the concert tonight. Last weekend I went to the Def Leppard concert(that rocked, but I decided I'm just waaaaaaayyyyy too old to be going to a huge concert and trying to act like a teenager! but it won't stop me), so tonight, there is a cool band that only plays 80's music coming to my little town and we are going to that. I love 80's music, 80's and Christian music, that's about all I listen to.

Sorry for rattling on, it's been a productive day and I guess I just needed to type. Have a fantastic weekend everyone and can't wait to hear from everyone on their beta's, ET's, etc!

Hi all

I POAS this morning and it was a BFN. It's only 2 days off beta day (Mon) so I'm pretty certain the HPT was accurate. I feel gutted and one step closer to the harsh realisation that I'm never going to be a mum, and DH and I will never have our own family. It just breaks my heart. We have one frosty up our sleeve. If that doesn't work out, it's either stop or consider donor embryos. I haven't got my head around donor embryos yet though and i really don't know if i have the energy to carry on down the IVF route. It's been an 18 month roller coaster ride with the best and worst of times.

I'll post again soon when my PMA has come back. :cry:

Tess69-don't loose hope. I really think it is still too early. Others on these boards have had negative HPT's up to the day before their Beta and then their Beta's are positive. So don't give up just yet. There are lots of other factors involved including 5 day transfer vs 3 day transfer, sensitivity of the test, late implantation, etc... Please keep your chin up. Please know that I am praying for you.
