how many days past transfer are you? Frozen transfers can have lower beta numbers and HPT's aren't always accurate. For my last pregnancy i had a beta of 20 and the next day I POAS and it was negative the day after that my beta was 86. so don't stress out just yet. For this pregnancy which was a FET.. my beta started out really low on 12dpo it was a 5.. 14 dpo -24 and 16dpo -86.

Being mad is a normal feeling that i know way too well.. I remember being pissed at the world after a few of my BFN's.. Don't worry you are not alone. When is your beta?

Hi there. My beta is Monday but really don't feel like getting poked. I've really never been mad til now. 8) was going to ask RE if he would do 5 day blasto cyst and maybe three but he didn't like when I asked him about putting more embryos.If I change RE I'd have to drive 7 hours and that would be hard on me.dont know what to think anymore :(

Tinker- I'm curious why you would have to drive 7 hours if you changed RE's? I know of 1 other in San Antonio that has a good reputation. We considered switching after the second cycle, but we really love our doc and his staff and they've been great with us(and I know everyone is different, so even though we are seeing the same doc, you may have a different experience). If you do a search on inf doctors in san antonio, the other doctor will show up, he's off of Stone Oak. I'm not sure where in town you live, but Stone Oak is somewhat central. I know you don't feel like it will be worth it, but good luck on Monday.

I looked up the best Ivf on Texas and R doctor is fifth. The best is In
Dallas and the second Houston. Don't get me wrong my RE is really nice when I see him on day of transfer and the staff is nice too but that's not getting me preganant.that doesnt sound nice but IV spent alot of money there and nothing. Im scared

Tinker - Good Luck today!! If this doesn't work, I would look at a possible 2nd opinion. Sometimes its good to have another set of eyes. Also what i look at is that all your negatives and m/c were from eggs from the first cycle you did. If you did another protocol or adjusted the one that you originally did, you could get a better group of eggs. I don't know much of your back ground but so can't give too many other opinions. sometimes its just bad luck and even if the eggs look awesome at transfer time, it doesn't mean that they are chromosomally normal. I understand your frustration, for some people this road can be very long.

Aww well thank you. I'm still waiting on my doctors office to send my orders. It's driven me in sane. When I started Ivf my RE when down on my meds. He said I reacted great and that I didn't need much. I guess I was making to many eggs. I think three out of 23 didn't make it. Then when they were going to freeze only three made it to blasto cyst. I was watching a you tube tube last night and started crying. One girl tested with a clear blue and had the same symptoms, and then she took a different brand test and that showed up pos+. I wanted to run out I buy one but didn't. I said I'm going crazy and started praying about today. God please walk with me.

Tinker, I am so sorry. We had our BFN last week from our second IVF, we are still devastated but trying to focus on our next cycle. Are you thinking of cycling again?

I recieved a call from my Doctors office. Saying the lab only ran a pregnancy test not a beta. I was in shock. I was like I stopped all my meds. It could be low and pregnant right and she said yes but with low numbers it would be a low chance of a heathly but you never know.I want to kill the lab for missing up...Now I'm thinking.
