so i went for my beta #3 today. i couldnt wait, plus tomorrow is going to be quite busy. my beta #3 is 3539 at 22dpo. that's 58hour doubling time since my last beta. i was a little dissapointed that my doubling time has slowed down - but the doc seems to think its fine. my u/s is scheduled for next friday, jan 13th ( 6w3d) although the doc wanted me to wait till jan 16th ( 6w6d). he says at 6w3d it is still 50%/50% on the heartbeat. but i decided to take my chances. i just cant imagine waiting through the weekend. at least we will see if the structure is on time even if we dont see the u/s.

more waiting now. boy or boy! this is hard.

Lyd: From what I understand, your doubling time is supposed to be slowing down now. Also, I checked on betabase and your beta is right on target for 22dpo.

For single pregnancy:

For twin pregnancy:

Kerpupples: Wow, you've got an excellent chance for success! Are you going to POAS?

LYD, great 3rd Beta!! I think you should be thrilled; it's still increasing and at a good rate! I know the waiting for the ultrasound is so hard; I feel ya! The one week between seeing the two heartbeats to waiting for my next ultrasound (Monday) is taking forever! I'm still a little in disbelief about twins, so I'm eager to see if everything is still there and doing well. My nasuea/feeling weird didn't really start until about 5.5 to 6 weeks...

Kerpupples, awesome that your transfer is today! I hope it goes/went smoothly! Take it easy today and make sure you are taking perfect care of yourself. Your odds sound awesome and I would love to have another twin buddy to go through this experience with!

Barbara, thanks for the insight about Lilypie...I just tried a few different ways and finally figured it out. How are you feeling? When is your first OB appointment? I still need to make mine.

AFM, just waiting for my next ultrasound on Monday. My boobs seems to grow more and more everyday (I'm normally pretty small, so it's weird to have them again) and are crazy sore! I am very sensitive to how frequently I eat. I go from hungry to CRAZY hungry very quickly. I had a meeting for work yesterday and when I put my suit pants on, they were already snug! I wonder how quickly I will be in maternity clothes...whoa!

Hi ladies! Just woke up from a nap, and the transfer is complete. Things went off without a hitch. The worst part of it for me is always sitting there so long with a full bladder. I'll post a pic of our embies when I can get it from DH's phone. One of them was almost completely hatched, and the RE said that one should implant today and the other tomorrow if they are to do so.

A catch though - they drew my blood, and my progesterone is borderline, so I get to add a PIO shot every other day to the Endometrin. Messy suppositories AND knots on my @ss. Yay me! Thank goodness it's just over a week to my beta, when they will test levels again though. I'm not surprised though, really, as the suppositories haven't seemed to be absorbing too well lately.

Kerpupples, great news on your transfer and one of the embryos almost being hatched! You'll have to let us know if you feel any different over the next few days for sure! So glad you will know the outcome soon, although the waiting period can be tough. When is your beta scheduled for?

Yes, I've been POAS every day since the transfer! Sadly, all BFNs so far. I know it's far from too late but I am rather discouraged given what the RE said about when the embies should be implanting, especially the hatching one. I'll keep you posted.

HI Kerpupples. Thanks so much for the update. It is definitely not too late to get BFP, but I do understand the feeling of being discouraged. I will keep thinking of you and hoping for that line to appear! Please keep us posted. Your beta is on the 13th, right?

Kerpupples, oh it's still so early my friend! My first positive was on a Saturday and my beta was scheduled for the following Wednesday. Hopefully tomorrow your BFP will start to show up:) Have you felt any twinges or do you feel different in any way?

Awww, Kerpupples, I'm sorry to hear about the BFN this morning. I do know how discouraging that can be, but it's still not over yet! Please keep updating us and we are thinking of you a ton!
