I am 9dp3dt and I spotted little pink when I wiped everytime from this afternun. I somehow am not crying. May be because I was crying for no reason the past three days. My nurse had told me earlier even if people bleed they have to take the blood test and they have gotten positive.
I dont know what is my case. I was devastated when I found the spottinng. I was wondering how it happened cuz I am on progesterone suppositories. I have heard people spotting when they come off the suppositories. Really confusing.

hello i know what you are going through and the 2ww is the worst part of ivf , I bled at 13dpt(spotting on this day) but all my tests are positive and i went on to bleed for 4 days like a normal light period. was told was either implantation bleeding but more probable hormonal/breakthrough bleeding(your hormones arent high enough to completely stop your monthly period although you are pregnant). don't despair but again you wont know until you test. sending you loads baby dustxxxx let me know how you gox melissa

Yesterday was 12dper and it is my average luteal phase so I was really worried out when I saw the spotting. But after I put the suppository yday afternun, night and this morning it stopped. So hopefully its nothing to worry about.
I do not have sore breasts which makes me a little angry about the whole IVF process. I need something to surely know I am preggo. I dont want to take HPT.
Btw when you spotted 13dpt what was the color of it? Also when did you start having breast soreness/ nipple irritation?
Thanks

hello, my bleeding was bright red, just like a normal period, no clots and i had no cramps atall. Thd difference from me to you is that i took a hpt and had a blood test before bleeding started. I then ofcourse was worried as it was bright red but on the plus side i had no cramps, anyway like i said 3 days later to be safe i had tests done again and all doubling up and rising. Bleeding stopped and we hav scan wed 12th. my bleeding i think was hormonal/breakthrough bleeding(like a normal period what some women still get when they are pregnant)  Yours sounds like could be implantation bleeding and it was spotting, if it was brownish thats another reason it could be this type of bleeding. I have no breast soreness or nipple irritation at the moment, not everyone gets that this early on sometimes can be after 8-10 weeks, everyone is different  , let me know how you go, we're on early days and even though i'm a couple weeks on from you, it is still that much early, take care melissax

Im 8dpt of 3dt and not feeling much cramps anymore. Sometimes a shooting twinge here and there. My breasts are soar from progesterone couldnt even sleep on them. No more urination like the first couple days. No spotting  at all. Just doing my 2ww I cooked for Mothers day for my Mother n law and her 3 boys.. I put on a happy face but in my heart i just have this worry cause it's my first IVF and i can;t imagine how a lot of you been through it multiple times its so emotional, physically and mentally taxing. God bless you all are So strong.

BD to everyone.. (oops a little for me too!)***

We had our 2nd ultrasound today....the twins are doing well!  They have more than doubled in size since last week, and their heart beats are strong.  The doctor says at this point we have no risk of vanishing twin, and there is less than 5% chance of miscarriage.  I am feeling good, and very relieved today.  I feel so blessed and will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers...we are proof -- God is listening!!  ;)

Next week we will get to see their arms and legs and they said they might even move for us....WOW!  ;)

Thanks for the kind words -- we are very excited!  

We had 2 5 day blasts put in, but we are working with a surrogate.  They took the embryos from my husband and I, and implanted them into her.  They both took, so we are expecting twins.

She was REALLY tired and REALLY hungry and that was her big indicator that she was pregnant.  Since she already has kids, she had an idea of how her body would react.  She has not had a lot of other symptoms and we are now at week 7 (embryonic age).  

We chose not to do a home test, because if the response was ++ and it was wrong we would be bummed, and if it was -- and wrong, we would have been bummed..so it made sense for us to wait for the blood as the official test.  I am glad we did even though it was super hard to wait the 2 weeks.

I wish you the best of luck and a +++ on Wednesday!

I am sorry to hear about your m/c.  Just about the same thing happened to me last July.  I had my levels drawn 14 days beta 112, drawn a week later  1,200 then the week of ultrasound, started lightly bleeding... when we went in for ultrasound, the RE couldn't see anything.  I know how hard this year, and I send you my support.  I know there is nothing we can say or do to comfort you.  But we are all here for you when you need us.

i had a FET, 5 day transfer.  my first IVF i had bad cramps and started bleeding and PG test was negative, this time I had a FET and nothing, a little cramping the day of and the day after the transfer but other than that no cramps, no implantation bleeding either, nothing.  I was belching a lot, constipated and bloated, that was it, I took a PG test 8 days after the transfer and it was positive.

berrykiss:  My doctors office is right under the place where I get my bloodwork so everything gets done in house and i hear much sooner than usual.

I HEARD THAT  ON TWINS THE LEVELS A DOUBLE....  SO I  WANT  TO KNOW HOW WERE  YOUR LEVELS??
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
The day I found out I was pregnant my levels were 334.  Three days after my level was 1,293.  A week later it was 17,322.

Are you hoping for twins?  I kind of had a feeling that I was having twins based on my levels and what everyone else was saying.  Also I've been extremely tired from the beginning.  Come to think of it a week after ovulation I slept through out the whole weekend and now I know it's from the implantation.  

Can't wait to hear how your ultra sound goes.  Keep us posted.

BD and sticky babies to all!

Your levels are supposed to be doubling every three days -- whether or not it's twins.  We were told that high numbers are not always indicative of twins...good luck if you get them though!!

Hey ladies..are you getting ready for your first trimester screening?  Have you done any homework yet?  I am getting to that point -- our surrogate has her first OB appointment on Tuesday, and we will schedule testing as appropriate from there.  I hear so many stories...it makes me nervous!  I am 37, and don't really know what to expect or what the different risk levels are.  I am not sure how different things will be given we are having twins....

Thoughts???

Thanks!

I just did my blood screening this week and in two weeks go for the ultrasound. For twins we just have a greater chance for preterm labor and preclampsia. I am feeling a little nervous but am concentrating on the joy of being pregnant (most days):) Good luck to you!

I know there are additional complications with the pregnancy overall, just curious how you are feeling about the screening tests, and if you would do an amnio....
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
Hi Ladies!
I go in for my screening with OB on Tuesday as well and then I have an appt with perinatolgist on June 11th.  I'm not sure of what tests I'm going to be doing.  I've been reading about them and their risks.  I think I will wait to hear from my OB/specialist as to which tests she thinks I should do.  I wouldn't want to put the babies in harm when it's not neccessary.  Please let me  know which tests you guys decide to do.

I really think we don't have much to worry about.  Especially since we will be monitored so much more closely and often.  Having extra appointments will put our worries to ease I'm sure.  

Waitingforgoodnews: Let us know how your appt goes on Tuesday.

Hello, i don't expect anyone reads this thread much as its older, but the page that you put on for the way a 3 day and a 5 day transfer develops is so good and helpful, do you know how the 2 day transfer goes, should i just take off a day in development i.e gets to blastocast stage on day 4 if i had transfer 5 days ago, you count the day after transfer as day 1. had transfer friday so follow tues would be blasto stage? in second ivf 2ww and very nervous and apprehensive, lots love melisssa

Did my transfer on 04/09 and this is our third ivf and starting to have lots of cramping and I know it can be good or bad. I want to do a hpt so bad but don't know if I should our not yet. Did hcg on04/02 so it should be out of my system. Going crazy.

Hi, I am new to this site. I had egg retrieval 8 April and transfer 11 April, 3 day transfer. I had an 8 cell and 6 cell replaced and now on day 5 post transfer. I had cramping and bloating certainly for the first 3 days and had bed rest during those 3 days but raking things very easy, no hoovering, heavy lifting, etc. Since the cramps for 3 days, I have had no other symptoms. The wait us killing me and I as much as I'm trying to stay really positive, I'm becoming a bit down thinking it hasn't worked. Has anyone else had no symptoms after 3dpt? This is my first cycle on ivf(icis). Xx
