hello ladies, well i think its safe to post here, ive been so terrified and up and down with emotion since my bw on mon, i did get my bfp confirmed!!! my first beta was 85 on 7/2 and i had another one today and it had gone up to 445 so i was a lot relieved because i awoke this morning with bright red spotting so i was sure it was over, that is until my nurse called an told me my number. so i do have a question for you ladies has anyone heard about what the progsterone levels are suposed to be?? they called me back tonite and told me to up my dosage from 1cc to 2cc's they said its normal for it to be around 20 my level was 25 and they would like to see it higher they said that could be a sign of thin uterine lining which could be causeing the spotting...geez something else to worry about...does it ever end?? haha so if the pregnancy calculator is right my due date shoud be around the 10th of march so woohoo!! i still have not had a scan yet they said my hcg levels had to rise above 1000 before they can see anything so does anyone know about that progesterone thing??

Hi pregnant ladies! I'd like to join your March thread. I think I'm due March 12 according to the IVF calculator. I had my FET on 6/22 with 5 3d embies- (yes, 5! ) and had a BFP on 7/2 with an beta of 34. I was ecstatic but of course went online to research about low betas and was sick worried for 3 days and today had a 2nd beta of 213. That eased my anxiety level a bit and will have a 3rd beta on Monday. Anyway, this is my 1st FET after a BFN on my IVF in March 07 with 3 great embies. I'm so excited to finally join this thread after ttc for 4 yrs.

Brandi, I'm so sorry about your scare today and thank goodness everything is ok. I do PIO shots too with 2cc's since 3 days before transfer and my progesterone level has been through the roof around 200. Anyway, my RE said I could switch to suppositories now if I want but I think I'll stick it out with the shots until the U/S....I'm so dependent on them that I don't want things to go wrong.

Hello Everyone...CONGRATS.

My due date is March 2nd!! I had my first ultrasound today with two great looking yolk sacs and a 3rd questionable one.

I am so happy for everyone! The wait is over, doesn't it feel WONDERFUL! It is really great to read about everyone's success stories.

Due March 12th...

Postby tamiam » Mon Jul 09, 2007 12:28 pm

DUE MARCH 12th...
I'm a bit behind ya'll ... but that's good because you can tell me what's coming up!!! :wink:

They transferred 2 embryos on 6/35 and I rec'd my official positive from the doc on 7/5/07. I'm still in total disbelief! As you all can relate, it's been such a long journey and it's incredible that we made it here! WOW!

I am SO nervous about receiving my 2nd hcg reading today. My husband tells me all will be good but my mind goes wild worrying about the "what ifs!" Sometimes I find that I can do too much research on the issue which gives my mind more to worry about ... ack!

I have experienced the mild cramps (feels like menstral cramps), nauseaus at times and tender breasts ... and of course I'm so sleepy yet I wake up early in the morning.

I'll be SO glad when I can stop these nightly Progesterone shots! Anyone know when that ends?

tam, i know what you mean. every week when i go in for my bloodwork and scan i'm all anxious and worrying about what if this happens or that. LOL. I think i'm a little crazy :).
I stopped the shots the day i got my 2nd test and started pills then... now i'm down to one pill a day. whooo hooo.
I thought i was being crazy that i woke up so early ... i usually am NOT a morning person. but i keep waking up around 630 every morning.

The funny thing about all the anxiety and worrying is that we have come such a long way with such small odds, that now when the risks are less than the chances of us getting prego to start with, we are questioning and worrying over EVERYTHING!! lol.
Ladies, i suggest we sit back, relax, and enjoy these pregnancies!!!!!!!! ( if any body knows how to do that let me know ;) )

Thank you dixiegal1 :D
I SO am ready to cease these daily shots, pills, suppositories...!

Oh yes, I wish I could relax! I keep telling myself that it's vital to have positive thinking throughout this process ... for it's positive thinking that got us this far!

I think my anxiety comes from the feeling that I've come so far and I'm so close ... yet I'm so far away still. Ohhhh!

You are so right, we have come so far and we definitely need to enjoy each and every moment of our pregnancy. Each day I wake up and say, "I'm pregnant," and each night I repeat it ... perhaps it will sink in soon :wink:

Hey ladies,

Sorry I was not on for few days. Couple nights ago I had a scare. I went to the bathroom to urinate and I had some light pink spotting. So I called my RE next morning and he said that it was normal as long as it's not a lot and is not bright red. My spotting only lasted couple of wipes and that was it. I go in for my U/S on 7/11 to see how many embies and to see heartbeat or heartbeatS :) . I am a little nervous. Has anyone experienced this?

Hi ladies!

I've been off-line for a while. We've had several house guests and I've been exhausted! But, I'm happy to be exhausted and pregnant any day!

Well I had my first scan today and they saw one great sac with a very good heart beat and a littler sac with a good yold sac and a heartbeat, but said we need to wait until next week to know if we get to keep the second baby. So we're praying hard for the smaller baby and hoping to keep both. But, I am thrilled to have one! Still in disbelief that we saw the heart beat.

Tajma - I'm so sorry you had that scare. It is SOOOO common. I had bleeding my entire 1st tri last pregnancy and my dd didn't mind a bit. Sending you extra sticky dust and prayers for your upcoming scan.

Brandi - Congrats on your great hcg!! Sending you babydust for Wed's scan!

Tam - Congratulations!! i still need to talk myself into being pregnant too. Even after seeing a heartbeat! My favorite part of being pregnant were the little kicks and wiggles. I can hardly wait for those to start. That will definately convince me I'm pregnant!

Jessica - Double Congrats on your great scan! Sounds like your having at least 2!!! When is your next scan?

Dixiegal - Double Congrats on your scan! When do you go back?

Anna - Sending you great vibes for a good strong hcg. I know I am always a nervous wreck waiting for those things!

Sending tons of babydust to all our March mommies!!!

Hi ladies, I thought I would pop in. Looks like my due date will be mid-March too. Dr hasn't given me a due date yet, but I figured it to be around the 13th. Hopefully it will be lucky number 13 for me!

Daly, I remember you from last year. I think we went through IVF together early in 2006. I had a canceled cycle then. Good to see you here again!

I don't have my first US for two weeks, on Monday the 23rd. That's going to seem like FOREVER!!! I haven't had any symptoms yet either, other than the light cramping in the ovaries. Sounds like that's pretty normal.

Congratulations to all of you. The next 8 months are going to be so exciting!!!! YEAHHHH!!!! I didn't want to go to sleep the first night after the BFP. I was too afraid I would wake up and it would all just be a dream. :lol: I'm still in complete shock!!!!
