Samantha- yep I do believe we are. And i also know that through Him all things are possible. You know, DH used to be the one that needed to be reminded of that. Lately though, he has had the strong fath and mine has been like Peter's. Which btw, DH keeps calling me. =D

Blessed-I know exactly what you are going thru. EXACTLY. Except I havent poas. I know me, and I know that no matter what that test says I will not believe it. So...there is no relief. When I read all the comments about 2ww before I was actually in it I felt like, oh man it cant be that bad. WOW was I wrong. I think what makes this so bad for me is that I'm no longer working and am on light duty per RE so DH takes that a little far and wont even let me take trash out of the can. That should be a good thing I guess but every speck of dirt or dust on these wood floors is yelling at me and theres nothing I can do about it lol. I sneak and sweep if it gets real bad but man am I bored....praying for you.

The 2ww is torture isnt it!?! My RE wont let me POAS because of possible false results. They want me to just wait till Monday so the results will be acurate. Its pretty hard lemme tell ya! There are so many times I wanna just take a HPT but I know its better to just listen to the experts and be patient...I have the luxury of not having to work and my DH is also being very helpful with doing things around the house. I feel like a complete couch potatoe. Ive been super lazy and really trying to take it easy. I had 2 embies transfered on Halloween of all days...I kept joking saying that its gonna be another "Rosemarys Baby..." :lol:

Have you had any symptoms yet? I feel pretty much the same...at times I wanna say I feel different but then I question if its all just in my head and im thinking about things too much. Its still pretty early to have symptoms though.
Me 24- Polycystic Ovaries, but not PCOS. Ovulate normal, Normal AF every month.
DH 26- No Issues...well not fertility wise, but can be a nerd at times. ;)
#1 IVF-
ER- 10/26 11 eggs

Evening ladies - wow what a lot happened today!!!!

Leorira: Oh wow, ok thats just plain unlucky about the trip!!!!!!!!!! But I love Lyd's suggestions - movies will be good. And thank you very much for your suggestion about True Blood. Have watched season 1 and moving to season 2 as soon as I finish personals. I'm thrilled that you start next week though - just brilliant and I'll cross fingers, toes and eyes for you!

Gina: great photo!!!!! Ive also asked Arch Angel Azrael to be with your grandmother x

Julia: are you going absolutely crazy? Have you anything nice planned for the weekend to distract you at least?

Sunshine: I'm really rooting for you. I hope the beta was positive x

Rosie - How are you doing?

Jenmink: Thats a tremendous beta - congratulations.

Amanda; Its probably a silly question but how are things with you?

Jayne: I'm so sorry on both fronts - the beta and also the adoption. I hope that the US will open soon to India. What would be the estimated wait time for you to get your little girl?

Lyd10: Congratulations on AF thats brilliant! How was your accupuncture yesterday?

Blessed: Don't worry about not doing personals. Just try and rest if you can. Honestly, it can take longer. I really really hope it will be a BFP x

kerpupples - how are you today?

Margi - Your little boys are gorgeous.

Bodie - Your mum must have been thrilled!

Maria - Your photos are beautiful - seriously - do you have a bad photo of yourself?!!!! And what a cutie your ds was!

Kiminish - I'm sorry that you didn't get the full lot fertilising. And I hope you won't need a FET - that this will work.

blue: How is your tiredness?

LYD - HURRAY FOR AF! I'm so excited the b*itch finally showed up! PUPO for Christmas sound like a great plan!

I have this sneaking suspicion I forgot people - I'm really sorry if I did.

Afm: Saw my doctor (not RE) today for my 5 week post m/c check up. So she drew some blood and unlike you guys as it isn't my clinic who drew it it will be a week before I get the beta results! However, thats ok, I'm pretty sure it must be zero by now. I also multitasked and got the flu shot and a mole checked!

Samantha-no symptoms really. I keep feeling crampy and am afraid AF is coming as today would be the day but I've been crampy for weeks lol. I got nauseous last night but I'm sure it was stress. And my boobs had been hurting but that stopped. I have 3 kids and I never knew when I was 10 days pregnant so how would I know now if I had symptoms if I didn't know thenis how I'm looking at it. By the same coin however, I may have had them then and not recognized it or attributed it. Blah! This sucks lol.

Ninde-nope nothing special planned. And this whole no sex/no orgasm thing is making me crazy. If I'm pregnant it will be another month without but I'm pretty sure that will be worth it!

Jayne - i am sorry to hear that India's adotpions are closed. what the heck does that mean? darn beurocracy. i hope it will open back up next year. I am gadl you are able to get back to running. that's goota feel so nice!

Ninde - yes, my AF is here. thank god. the day after i scheduled my accu to bring on the AF, it appeared on its own. Yey for karma! so i cancelled my accu and went to the mall instead! just as much fun. had a cappuchino from my favorite nordtsrom's coffee shop place. my first 3 IVF cycles i did accu along with teh cycle - but now i dont have enough time to do all teh appnts - so i think i am goign to skip it. except maybe on the day of transfer. i think i'll have the accu lady come in for transfer. there is actually scientitf evidence that it improves the chances if done within 2 hours of transfer. so i am goign to plan for that.

i am so thrilled that my doc and my embryologyst were able to squeeze me in before the holidays! i am really lucky to have this team. within 2 hours of getting my period yesterday i've recevied callbacks from everyone and got my calendar and my neds called in to the pharmacy. those guys are great! this is goign to be the shortest lupron cycle for me - only 5 weeks till ER - 1 BCP, 2 Lupron, 2 stims. i like that! i hope my shortened time on BCPs is not goign to be a problem.

i am still hugely apprehensive about a fresh transfer. for some reason i am worried that fresh dont work for me. but my embryologist said that there is no reason to believe that - and as long as E2 is in check i should be good. so i am going for the fresh transfer.
I've already got my pee sticks from Amazon and will be POASing.
if the fresh one doesnt work i will do antoher cycle - probably my last one- and do a frozen transfer. just to cover all bases.

Just a quick question... why do some women do lupron and some women don't? Anyone know the answer? I have never been on Lupron so I was just curious.

Kiminsh - Our first cycle I didn't have any frosties either. It is very nerve wracking.

Hope, Sunshine - any beta results?

Julia - My mom was like that coming off anesthesia when she got her teeth pulled. She was telling the dentist fishing stories she has no recollection of!

Jayne - So sorry to hear about India's adoption status - why would they do that? Hope that changes in Jan. At least you can go run off your frustration now. And heck, if you paid for another cycle I have a feeling you'll be up for giving it another go at some point. The shortness of breath thing is so bizarre. I called my husband after walking to my car from the bus stop yesterday and he asked why I sounded so out of breath! As a Broncos fan, I hope you'll forgive me if I don't share your enthusiasm for the Chargers. ;)

Blue - I won't be on tomorrow, so wishing you well at the u/s!

Gina - thank you. Love the pic!!!

LYD - sounds like you'll be stimming right around when I'll be doing the FET.

Leora - Yes, FYL indeed! So sorry you'll miss that, it sounds glorious! As long as you won't regret missing the trip you're doing the right thing by not going. Is this a yearly thing?

Maria - thanks. We'll be closer to being cycle buddies now.

Blessed - still may not show up yet! Out of the 2 BFPs I have had one did not show up until the day before beta.

Ninde - see below. :) Your zero beta will be back before you know it.

AFM - Feeling MUCH better, well enough to go to a gentle yoga class. No pelvic twists though, still taking it easy on those ovaries. I'm waiting for AF so that I can start BC again (Maria, I am SO with you on not being happy about this, but c'est la vie) and they can work out the calendar. The embryologist I spoke to said it would be closer to 3 weeks for results since they are doing the most complete chromosomal analysis available for the clinical trial.

Jayne = So sorry to hear about the negative beta. But I do agree, better to know than to go through a few weeks of hell with the same result. For your question to me it was only hard to decide when to tell my mom. I wasn't sure if I wanted to wait longer given my history. I don't want to disappoint her

Lyd - YAY for AF!

Leora - Wooohoooo!! Great news! But so sorry you will miss the trip…

Blessed - I'm sorry about the neg HPT. There is still hope though, don't give up.

Ninde - OMG that happened to me in the 2ww this time around. Woke up with a spontaneous orgasm and thought oh crap, I probably just ruined the whole deal. Never happened to me before in my life. LOL

Blue - will be stalking tomorrow to hear the results of the U/S

Sunshine - where are you?

Leorira- I added a ticker just for you! I am so nervous, I still cannot believe we have made it this far :roll: I am scared to accept it, like it will be ripped away from me. I am trying to just stay positive :mrgreen:

Sunshine- Where are you girl, we are all waiting for a BFP post!! Fingers and toes crossed! :mrgreen:

LYD10- I always thought fresh transfers didn't work for me either. The only cycle I ever got pregnant on was an FET albiet a chemical pregnancy. WELL I got pregnant this time off a Fresh Transfer. I honestly think it's the Acupuncture that did the trick. I did acupuncture with my FET too. I am going to continue to go until at least 12 weeks- just get me out of the danger zone!!

Julia- My only symptoms for this BFP were extreme cramping- worse than AF. Lower back pain which was and still is annoying! Just a few more days! Are you not going to POAS??

Jayne321- I am so sorry about the BFN- I know how much that sucks. It's funny, when I get a BFN I like to run too. There is something theraputic about releasing all that energy.

blessed- hang in there honey. 7dt could still be early. If you had a late implanter you might not see a BFP until 9-10DPT. I agree, God is i control here and we have to trust that he has a plan no matter how we feel about it. I am hoping you get your miracle (((Hugs)))

I know I missed a bunch of you. I am supposed to be working from home today but miss my IVF sisters. I really need to get back.

AFM-- Even with two good Beta's I am still so nervous. I am worried that we will get to U/S and there will be no heartbeat. I am letting go of my fear tonight however and handing it over to God. Worry does not please him so I am going to stop. I know if this is meant to be there is nothing I can do to change it. Look at me, massive car accident 4DP 5DT and I still got a BFP. If that doesn't show you how in charge God is of this whole process I don't know what does. I was going to post my 2ww symptoms here for anybody that likes to obsess? I know every 2ww I scour the internet looking for signs. So I figured I would share in case any of you wanted to know. XOXO Jen

ET Day d0pt 5dt- Still very bloated before and after ET. Cramping in lower abdomen probably from ovaries that are still swollen- not AF type cramping. At night had very bad back cramping but was relieved from sitting up or sleeping on back. Weird nightmares.
1dpt 5dt- extremely mild cramping, bloating is starting to go down. Slight to moderate cramping in the afternoon- started around 2pm. Slight twinging tonight around 430. Not cramping but pokes and pain. Minor panic attack tonight.
2dpt 5dt- back ache in the morning, mostly when sleeping. Mild AF cramping this morning, but very mild. A little sick to my stomach but it could be the chocolate milk I drank. Swelling in abdomen seems to be decreasing. Around 1230 intense back and abdomen cramps. After acupuncture cramps gone and feeling more positive. Around 4pm totally lost all energy and almost passed out from being so tired. Nothing new and cramps are 99% gone. Twinging and poking in uterus area.
3dpt 5dt- slight cramping in the AM. Around 1130 got bad back cramps, but reduced to nothing by 1pm. No other real symptoms during the day.
4dp 5dt- Woke up at 3am freezing cold. Bad back cramping today but it went away by evening. Thought I was getting nauseous on the way to MIL’s house. Extremely tired today, almost fell asleep at work and MIL’s house. Mild uterine cramping & shooting/poking pains.
5dp 5dt- VERY Nauseous today, horrible horrible headache- had to leave work early. No cramping at all today but by night the cramping had returned. Mostly back cramps. Excessive saliva, weird taste in mouth. VERY TIRED TODAY!
6dp 5dt- Slight nausea in early morning, resolved by afternoon but returned at night. BAD back cramps, HORRIBLE and weird shooting and cramping in lower abdomen. Cramping resolved completely by early evening. VERY moody tonight, voices, talking making me really annoyed. Stomach feels like it has acid, feels raw. Tired by early evening.
7dp 5dt- A lot of poking and shooting pains in uterus. Nausea in the morning. Took an HPT at 1pm, big dark line- BFP! Cramping in back and uterus in early evening. Continued overnight.
8dp 5dt- Cramping back again in morning, tingling in breasts. Back cramps strong again today. Nausea a few times throughout the day. HPT + again, line same shade as previous day. Evening had strong cramping.
9dp 5dt- Cramping increasing- AF type cramping but low. Back still killing me. Nausea and food aversions are slight today but still there. Beta #1 today BFP- 135
10dp 5dt- Cramping a little less today. Still feeling sick to my stomach, sight of food sometimes makes me sick. Boobs starting to tingle and get sensitive but they don’t hurt. Very moody like AF is on her way.
11dp 5dt- Cramping back, back cramps back – UGH! Very emotional. Boobs extremely tingly today and getting tender. Food aversions starting a little more today. Super tired today.
12dp 5dt – Pretty bad cramping today, feels like AF is going to start. Back is still hurting but better than yesterday. Saw a picture of a hamburger and almost hurled! Nausea still there seems less today than days before. Boobs getting more sore, less tingly. Getting harder to stay awake by afternoon.

Jayne - on your lupron question -
as far as i can tell thre are two common protocols - agonist ( with lupron) and antagonist ( without lupron but with ganirelix).

the first protocol is more common, but the other is common as well. i 've been on both protocols. my embryologist recommends the lupron protocol because she says it has higher success rate in literature for my age group.
