I'm so sorry, my email changed and I've lost yours...could you please send me an email at mirac at oxfam dot ca?
Notice my name changed to a "c" instead of the "d"!

I'm also in 2WW and going for a beta this Sunday.

Let's catch up on email, okay! I've been wondering how you've been doing!

Hi Betsta,
How are you doing?  Any updates?  Well, I don't know if you know, but we lost the pregnancy at 10 weeks.  It was very hard and still is.  We did a sonogram and biopsy last week.  The Sonogram revealed that I had tissue in my uterus.  So now, I have to go for Surgery in August.  I just can't believe I have to wait so long..

Just a quick note to say hi!  Hi Susan...good to hear from you!  I am midway through the stims...this will be number 2 for me but they have me on an antagonist protocol...so I'm hoping for better results this time.  sounds like you've been busy, I am sorry to hear about your insurance.  we are paying for this out of our pocket so i totally understand.  I think you should absolutley go the donor egg route if you can...and if not, I think adoption is a wonderful thing.  I plan to absolutely go this route someday should this not work for me.  let's keep in touch!  Andrea

Insurance companies don't understand what we have to go through with ferility.  How was the adoption conference?
AFM- I've been feeling nausous and very tired.  Last week we saw the heartbeat, which was very exciting.  I go back for another u/s tomorrow.  Do you believe I'll be 8 weeks on Wed.

That stinks-but I know it will happen! We have to keep the faith and not get too stressed out. I keep analyzing every little feeling I have and I know that is so unhealthy-going to try to relax over the weekend and not get the urge to buy an HPT

Enjoy your husband this weekend, and have a nice glass of wine

We got moved in to our temporary rental, it is nice but has been so much work!

You go girl!!!!  I'm thrilled to hear that there's some options open to you - I wish I knew more the ins-and-outs of insurance companies.  i can't believe they would deny you a donor cycle even if you are a good responder but it sounds like you've got a plan!!! - jen

Hi Betsta,  I'm good.  I am cramping a little and I'm tired, but everything else seems to be fine.  Why is your clinic deciding that you might not get another cycle?  I thought you had 4 left.  I really hope they give you more chances.  Please keep me updated.

They just called and told me I am pregnant.  I am so excited!!!!  I thought since I was going to test a few days earlier my beta was going to be very low, but the nurse told me it's 66.

Ok, tell me what you think.  Should I go in tomorrow to test?  I am getting very stressed out about it and I figure if it's showing up on HPT's than it would definatly show up on the B/T.  I just don't think I can wait another day.  How was your phone call with your dr.?

Thankyou.  I'm kind of nervous because last night's line was a little darker than this morning.  I just couldn't believe when I saw that first line after all those negative tests.  I thought I was out of the running.

I was so drepressed testing and seeing no line.  I don't listen to my own advice after I told you not to test.  Well, this morning I took another test and saw the faintest line and tonight I wanted to repeat the test to see if it was just an evap line, well it got darker.  My DH told me not to get too excited until I do the beta test.  II'm probably going to test tomorrow to see if I get a darker line. I can't believe this.  I thought it was not going to happen for me with this cycle, but now I'm still in the running.  How are you doing?  I hope everything is alright.  Let me know what your dr. has to say.

Well, I took a HPT test this morning and it turned out negative.  I'm really sad, but I do know it's early.  I didn't have the heart to tell my DH that I took a test because I didn't want him to stress.  This is too hard.  I went through 7 ivf's, one was ectopic.  I almost died from my 6th ivf due to internal beeding.  My family thought I was crazy on doing another one. Also, I lost both of my tubes in December, so my DH and I can't try naturally.  I'm sorry for all the info, but I needed to vent.  My DH and I always wanted children and I'm scared it's never going to happen for us.  This is so hard, but I know you can kind of relate.  Thankyou for listening.

Well, for me right now I have no symptoms, which is kind of worring me.  I think I'm going to to a HPT starting Sunday.  I just don't think I can wait till Thurday.

I am so sorry that you got your af.  I really thought this was it for you.  Do you think you might take a few months off or do a FET cycle?

Just try not to stress too much..  Are you taking estrace or progestrone?  I was pregnant once about 2 years ago and it turned out to be ectopic.  A few days before I went in for my beta test I felt like I was getting my af.  The day of the test the nurse ask me how do I feel and I told her I dough't I'm pregnant because I feel my af. Well, later on they called me and told me I was pregnant. So, that can be a very good sign that you are feeling this way.  Don't give up just yet on this cycle.

I also feel cramppy today, but it can also be the all the progestrone I'm taking.  I woke up today with a headache.  I've also been more thirsty and tired lately.  The 2ww is horrible,  I can't believe I have to wait until Thursday to test.  Who knows I might do a home test earlier.

I'm ok, I'm feeling cramping at times, but that can be from the progestrone.  I am so excited to find out, but I can't get my beta until the 12th.  I hate this 2WW, it seems to go too slow.

Please don't worry, you are testing too early.  Did you get your progestrone checked?  If so, how was your level?

Hello-hope you all aren't too snowed in, and hope you had a wonderful time with the girls (and your hubby) over the weekend. I can't believe it has already been a week! Are you getting tempted by the HPT yet? How are you feeling. Are you taking estrace or progesterone? I thought the worst part was the sesame oil progesterone shot in the bum-ouch!
We sold our house-settlement is 3/24, we still have no house to go to. We have made 2 offers on houses, and nothing has worked out yet. Versy stressful. I am still takind bcp and doing lupron shots 1xday. Tomorrow is monitoring and FET scheduled for 4/3.
Let me know how you are!!

The transfer went well.   They transfered over a 9, 7, 6, and 4, but they all had fragmentations.  I'm really praying hard that I see a BFP this time.  How are you doing?

I am so happy for you that you got 12 fertilized.  Are you sure you want to put 5 back, it just seems like a lot?  AFM-  Right now my follies are growing at different rates, so I not sure if I will get as many as I thought. I'm just trying to stay positive.  I did the trigger shot last night, so my retrival will be tomorrow.  I am very excited.  Good Luck with your transfer.

I am thrilled to hear those results! Way to go. You have to control that conversation with your doctor-you should get what you want since you have a solid track record with them. Wishing you the most restful next few days ever!! Keep your feet up and get spoiled, you deserve it! Keep me informed..Amy

I hope you are not too sore, but I am glad that they manipulated things around so well to get all of those eggs! Yippee. Give us an update when you feel up to it to let us know how many fertilized. So excited for you!
