I was hoping today's beta would be at least 1,000 (and 1,200 would be doubling ever 48 hours)....

drumroll please.....


1884!

omg!

(still a bit low, average for 23dpo is closer to 2500, but mine is doubling great!)

WHIPPEEEEEE!

I don't feel as queasy today, and I've had some cramping (feeling like AF is going to come), but I'm trying to stay positive!

U/S on Wednesday at 10am! YAY! (I'll be 5w5d)
8 IVF+6 FET=6 BFN+8 BFP =

Morning ladies

Kynlee: its so lovely to hear you so happy and so very well deserved x

Christy: I hope you have a lovely birthday. Its so hard to focus on anything else other than your dh's job situation and the ivf process i know but i hope you can have a day that is just for you x

Always angel: the very best of luck with er :D

Maria: it was lovely to read you went shopping for hospital stuff :D

Nkcole: you will be retrieving around the day I start stimming :D Its great you are starting again. How are you physically feeling?

Sonya: im so very sorry. I hope you will let us support you, your news I know must have been devestati g.

Madam x: is your beta today?!

Leora: oh wow!!!!! This is just fabulous, what a great beta. So a spring baby :D

Tiger: congratulations on being pupo. Are you able to rest?

Waiting kay: how are you doing?

Anton: hi :-)

Ker: oh you poor thing, heart burn is awful :( What is your doc saying about your delivery date? Im a twin and we were only 2 days early :-)

Kala: your u/s is tomorrow isnt it?

Lauren: how are you feeling?

Tortilla: all going well with you?

LauraN: are you starting lupron tomorrow?

Kala: how are you?

Afm: for some reason reading all the activity on the board im really nervous about my cycle. I suppose part of it is worrying I'll be the one who doesn't get pregnant. Im Sure that's probably selfish but its hitting me this morning for some reason. I'll be 41 in oct and im not sure if this cycle fails if we can afford another one. Im also very vividly remembering being pregnant last year and wanting that wonderful feeling again. Im annoyed with myself that I havnt lost much more weight. My baseline is aug 8 so i have three weeks to focus on it and 5 weeks really up to er. Its not like me to obsess like this so im going off to do a little bit of mindfulness meditation and just calm. As ever, thanks for listening ladies

Maria, doing well thank you. :) Just counting down the days until we leave Germany and the military life behind. Ready for new experiences! A little scary but we will be okay I think. Ready for Spring in the hopes of doing our first IVF!

Leora - Great beta! I'm so happy for you, soon you'll be able to breath, a great US is around the corner:)

Ninde - I totally get you. I also stress about other stories, take them personally, or feel left out. Could it be that you are being hard on yourself regarding your weight? Even if this is something doctors have indicated as an issue, you should be your best friend and remember just how much stress you're under besides. One of the best tips I used the last 2 months is squeezing half a lemon in a glass of water every morning. It should be the first thing you drink/eat.

Kynlee - I guess you're turning blue by now, after pinching yourself just to believe that you really are pregnant girl! Can't wait to hear your great beta tomorrow!

Wehavehope - Congrats on making it to 31 weeks already! Time does fly...light purple is gorgeous for the girls nursery!!! Have fun, this is just the best! :D

Madame x - fellow 2ww victim, how are you holding up? I'm impatient and restless!!! I manged not to Google so far about lack of early symptoms :lol: It's my typical 2ww addiction:)

Tiger - How are you coping?

Christy - Happy Birthday to you, I wish you the best and everything you ever wanted.

Kala - how are you?

Sorry if I'm forgetting someone...Wait! Could this be a sign or am I too early at 3dp3dt?

I don't like the waiting and I don't like the suppositories!

Klinger - Thanks so much for checking up on me!!! We are super hopeful! How are you doing???

Wehavehope-  the nursery sounds wonderful! I love that color! 

Leora - what an awesome HPT and amazing BETA!!! congrats girl, this is really it for you!  It's going to happen!!

Anton - good to see you on here as well! Hope you are well!

Lou - my dear friend, thank you for the support! I could't do it without you!!

Ninde - I was pretty lucky that my transfer was on a Friday because I've been relaxing all weekend! I feel good about that. It's healthy that you're being honest. I have felt the same way, and for so many cycles been so happy for everyone that gets pregnant, but sad that it never happens for me. It's totally natural and good that you're talking about it.  The great news is that you've been pregnant before, so it CAN and WILL happen. We're all here to support you on the bad days, when this seems just impossible. Do something nice for yourself, remind yourself that you love yourself and that you can do anything.

Christy - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Kay -my 2WW buddy....oh i'm coping, feel the same way you do! is it time yet? How are you doing?? have you been resting?

AFM: well, it's been an interesting few days. Yesterday morning, I ate a muffin and took the dyococyine or antibiotic or whatever, and even eating with it, I threw up! It was terrible. Then, this morning, feeling super nauseous.  I know it's way way way too early. The embies haven't even implanted yet! Do you think the progesterone is doing this? Should I ask the RE?

Leora- great news on your beta, congrats!

Tiger- keep resting! Yes, those hormones, especially estrogen, cause nausea. Eat small meals and stay hydrated.

Everyone else- wishing you all the best. Miracles really do happen! Stay positive.

Tiger: glad the transfer went well. How many days of bed rest will you do?

Kynlee: I understand about wanting a big family. I'd be happy with twins as well!

Ninde: I'm good and feeling positive. This morning I felt dizzy, which I think
Is a good sign and my boobs hurt. How about you? I'm sorry your feeling anxious...I was just going to suggest meditation or
Acupuncture when I read you were
Going to go meditate. Stay calm. Hugs!

Leora: don't over think it girl, that's a
Great BETA!

AFM: I felt dizzy this morning which is something new and I'm taking it as a good sign. Also my boobs and nipples hurt
But not sure if that's from all the hormones from the previous hormone Stims. I'm calm and positive....extremely different than my last round at IVF...then I was an anxious crazed maniac! Keep me in your thought girls.

Maria, he is retiring and we are moving to GA :) We cannot wait!! All of my family live there and we are ready for this. Kinda scary until DH gets a job but at least he gets retirement for his service in the military. It will at least cover right a some utilities which helps a TON!

I cannot believe you are 31 weeks! WOW! That color and decor sounds beautiful. Purple is my favor color! :)

Christy, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! How are you doing? :)

Hi Girls, hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Leora- Congrats on the GREAT beta! :D

Christy – HAPPY BIRTHDAY :D

Tiger – I have gotten so sick with doxycycline myself. The one time I had to pull over my car and hang out the door to puke immediately. I felt bad for the people house I threw up in front of…. lol….All the morning traffic going around me was horrifing. If I eat and wait like 10 minutes I am fine though.

Ninde- I feel the same way as you……worrying about being the one who doesn’t get pregnant will be me, but it happened for you once already so that just confirms it can and will happen again!

Kay – Oh I am doing enough Google research for the both of us!!

Always – That is a great retrieval!! Will you get a fert report tomorrow?

Tortilla – Glad you are staying calm and positive, at least one of us is.

Sonya- Sorry to hear about your BFN. Hopefully the next cycle will be the one! Your levels do sound really good!

AFM - Beta tomorrow
