Unfortunately this is too early for it to be pregnancy induced as I am only 2dp3dt.

Tonya- First CONGRATS ON THE BFP! I know it is low, but there is hope. Don't give up. Look for the doubling. I went from 14-37-67-186. I asked my RE if there was anything I could do and she said no. Internet said drink Welch's dark purple grape juice and eat pineapple daily including the core(1 slice). I have been doing that ever since. I also added a baby asprin since my regular OB will put me on it at 10 weeks anyway due to toxemia in last pregnancy and my age. Don't know if this has really helped, but at least I feel like I am doing something besides praying. There are ladies on here who started out just as low and my RE said she has had some too that have gone on the have healthy babies. Keep your chin up and I will be praying and thinking about you often.

Lindsey- Hope the OHSS clears up soon. I hear that is a real pain. Hang in there. You might want to check for a UTI with the urine thing.

Jayne- You can crash anytime. Congrats on the BFP that is wonderful and numbers are great.

AFM- Spent the day at the Ballard Locks watching the boats come in and out all the while enjoying my boobs hurting.

Tonya: there is definately hope. I genuinely have seen lower betas go on. But that I know doesn't take away from the worry. Holding you in my thoughts and hoping people are being kind to you.

Lyndsey: sorry to hear about your ohss. It sounds rotten and I hope it gets better not worse.

Suzy: I hope you and your boobs are ok!!

Sorcet: how are you?

I got the news today that we have no frosties. This has sent me into a tailspin because I feel like if none of them made it, who is to say the two we transferred will, and I have no back up plan now. I had just assumed that if this didn't work we would move straight to an FET like last time and somehow or other, we would get pregnant relatively soon. If this doesn't work I am going to have months and months more of people asking when we are having another, for me to answer with some feeble response and then die a little inside. I need to get over this and try to be positive! Help!

Oh no I'm so sorry but it's not over at all ! Only the minority have something to freeze and they put the best 2 back if there ever was a place they'd survive... I know I hate answering all the questions this transfer is likely our last cycle whether it works or not and facing the future with a bfn is almost unimaginable I know how you're feeling it's so hard to shake that negative feeling. Our 2ww is together I hope we both make It through !

Cristie- Thank you for the information I'll have to go buy a pinnaple lol I love grape juice too. I have heard of both of those in books that I have read but didn't think much about it. I do feel better today about the 18.8 my dh brought up a good point I'm closer to 25 than 5 which is a BFN so we are really hoping for great numbers tomorrow. My boobs are killing me today but I'm still having that pinching feel when I get up or move funny every once in a while. I don't know what thats all about.

Lindsey- lets all hope that this cycle works for us all I don't have back up's eigther I hope neigther one of us has to start over again next month.

Tonya- Yea for boobs hurting!!! Think positive about the pinching feeling. Maybe things are tightening up in there to hold that little one in or stretching for growth. Your DH is right you are closer to 25.

Tarassa- Those sticks are evil and I feel they play with your head. I think they steal our positive energy. You did a 3 day transfer and they take a little more time.

Lindsey- Sorry to hear you have no frosties. Don't think about another cycle yet. You are on this one now. I know it is hard, but you have too. I keep telling myself daily to be happy for now and enjoy the moment. I too have no frosties left and not sure I could endure another fresh cycle due to age. Sorry for the ranting. Keep your chin up.

Patricia- How are you doing? Thinking abut ya. Glad to hear your back to work helping others. Always takes our mind off our own troubles when we are in the service of our fellow man. Your job does that daily. :)

AFM- Enjoying the beautiful 86 degree day here. Very unusual for us this time of year. Smile ladies and spread some cheer. :D

BRmommy~ Thanks for the welcome. I am so sorry about the OHSS. It is no fun. I had it pretty bad this time. Ovaries greater than 8 cm with pretty big pockets of fluid in my abdomen. I am now 12p5dt and I still have symptoms but I'm finally feeling a little better. Hang in there and I'm hoping this pregnancy works for you. So sorry you have no frosties. We had one this time (fair quality) but my previously two I had no frosties. I was always sad.

Tawny~ so sorry for the low number. Hopefully that number on Sat will be a pleasant surprise.

Suzyq~ thanks for letting me crash. I laughed at your boob comment because last night I was happy as I was falling asleep and my boobs hurt. I'll take any symptoms. Every time I tell my DH that I'm a little nauseated, he says good.

Sorcet~ I have had cramping off/on too and it stresses me out every time. Hoping for a positive test soon for you.

AFM~ second beta is pending. I'm so nervous.
