Well I have been a little bit of a fibber,,,tee hee! I have been testing for 5 days and for the past 3 daysthere have been signs of ...yes... A BFP!!!!!! on 7dp3dt there were 2 dots that went up into the + and i had never seen that so i tested on 8dp3dt and there was a very faint line (almost had to squint to see it, but dh saw it too) to make the +. So went out an bought the FRER tests, 9dp3dt very very faint 2nd line and today!!! 10dp3dt it is still a little faint but DARKER!!!! I am soooo excited but cautiously optimistic!!!!
Ninita.......so sorry to hear this but I see that God have blessed you with child before and that's wonderful! Trust me, everything's happen for a reason and I am sure God has a better plan for you...
Can u do another ivf?
Ladies .. Er was Thursday 10 eggs collected 7 fertilized and the other 3 they will try to fertilize them again .. Et is tuesday and my dh gave me my 1st progesterone shot he did sooooo good . I should get an update sat and sun ! God is good!
Hey there ! I always used an ice pack before the shots then a heating pad for about 5 mins after RE said the heat helps the oil break down and get in to our system faster and it did help me a little ! Hope this helps !
Krichar - Congratulations on the BFP!!!!! Will keep u in my prayers
ninita - Im so sorry to hear that, dont give up, hang in there, Im here if you need to talk. will pray for you to feel better
hopeismymonth - WOW 317 is great !!!! you r right there with me, I was 342. Is going to be fun being pregnant with you and all the other ladies here in the forum, this month has been good, almost everyone is getting BFPs God is Great!!!!!! So happy !!!!!

Mistery77 - Congratulations!!!! WOW!!! Hooray for our group, We all have been so blessed!!! Praise the lord!!! God is great!!! Keep them coming baby!!! It is the power of all our prayers. We all care and pray for eachother so God is real happy with us. I'm so happy for all of us! Let's keep praying my girls
Thanks everyone for all your messages. Don't think my BFP has really hit me yet - maybe it will when DH gets back from his trip, I've not seen or spoken to him for a week! Had a little bit of pink spotting on Saturday night which terrified me. I've also been having mild stomach cramps since last Wednesday so I called the hospital today. They said it's probably nothing to worry about but I should continue taking the progesterone suppositories until I get to 9 weeks. Really praying that all continues to go well. Got next beta on Wednesday plus the return of DH!
Defenetly this forum has been very quite. I hope every lady and every baby are doing good. Me and my baby are enjoying our first trimester to the fullest, he is making me nauses and also my boobs are killing me but I am very happy to feel this sick, never thought I would say something like that. lol ..... Well dont b strangers and please keep me posted on your journey. You r all in my prayers!!!!!
Mystery77 - I was bleeding for 3 days in a row and had cramps too, was very sad thingking something was gonna go wrong, then 2 BETAs happened and everything is fine, dont worry take it easy, yo9u and your baby(s) will b fine. I will pray for you
Sissi - thank you. Hopefully the bleeding was a one off on Saturday night and it was a very small amount. It'sTuesday now and have been fine since, although the stomach cramps are still hanging around. If beta goes well tomorrow then I think I'll relax a bit.
Rose - try not to worry. I had stomach cramps at 4-5dpET and got a BFP.
Hoping4baby - that's terrible, I would be really cross. Hope you get a phone call with good news first thing this morning.
Kahlua - good luck for Thursday. Have you taken a HPT? I managed to resist I was so scared of the result!
Hi everyone, I hope you don't mind if i join your TWW group, i did IVF on June 10th, 5Day Blastocyst, transferred 2 blast, one very good other good. I just had my BETA today and found out that it is 214. I dont think it's sunk in yet that i have my BFP. I've been trying for 4 years and thought i could never get pregnant, unexplained infertility til i had fibroids and endometriosis removed last oct.
We dont want to tell any friends or family yet since its new and i'm 40years old so i wont feel secure til i pass the next three months. This is my first BFP, i'm excited and still can't believe its possibly true.
Ive been reading all your threads and see that alot of you are going through the same thing, it will be nice to have a support system.
hoping4baby2009- you are in my prayers for BFP as well.
hopingforbaby2009..........so sorry to hear this... was this your first? I know how heartbreaking it can be but u will get through it and hopefully the next round will work for u!
the cramps almost stopped this morning but I still have a lower abdominal pain on the left side. I wonder if it's a cyst? i remember i felt the same way with my first cycle but mostly couple of days before my beta and it turned out to be a cyst and of course had a BFN
would i still get a BFP even if i developed cysts?
Hi everyone! I am ne to this sight and new to this process. My short back story is the hubby and I have been trying off and of for about 3-4 years. We tried the "regular" way for a long time then decided last year to see if there was an issue. We tried IUI's 3 times then took a very long break and this year we decided that this was our year for IVF.
We are at the last state of the process. I had 2 transfered on june 17 ( my birthday I just can't think of a better present!) and now the 2ww has started. Monday 6/28 will be our day to know and I am on pins and needles over here. I just know God is good and has been answering our prayers left and right. So I have faith that this will work out. This will be the first grand baby (s) for both sets of parents. Oh the spoiling they will do..LOL!
We had 28 eggs total. 20 fertlized, 2 were transfered back and I was told they were "perfect", out of the remaining 18 we were able to freeze 8.
That is our new thus far. I had a one time spotting that didnt last ( but caused me to panic) and now I have slight cramping in my lower stomach and some times on the right or left. Has anyone else had this on day 5 post transfer? Any response is wonderful!
Congratulation!!! I know how excited you are.did you had any symptoms
on your 2ww before beta .I just trying to find resources to know what to do
because i do not feel anything yet, did u had home hcg test.
my beta is on the 28th too! I've been having cramps and one-sided pain as well and do not know what to think...
Spotting can be implantation bleeding or maybe just irritation from progesterone suppositories.
wish you all the best.
All: thank you for your positive words and thoughts will keep positive duringthis time.
hopingforbaby- You are in my thoughts today, i know how devastating this is. I sent you a long note on my journey and suggestion to start with VITEX specially mad from a naturopath which is what i did. You are not too old and since you were pregnant before you know you can get pregnant, i know it will happen for you. Keep faith.. I did accupuncture as well which i really feel helped.
rose- i had stretching stiffness on left side one week before then mild cramping on day 14 and more menstrual cramping two nights before BETA, i swore it didnt work because i had something similar last two IVF's then AF arrived and guess what my first BFP.. I did have some spicey thai on those days so maybe it was the thai food. You could still be preggers, dont give up faith!
verysoon-i had 5 day transfer with one good blastocyst and one other still compacting. Unfortunately none of my other eggs lasted to freeze. It is a good sign you had so many . You have really good numbers stay positive the TWW is tough but keep yourself busy, (lazy busy) it will help to keep your mind off things.
krichar-good luck tomorrow..cant wait to hear the official news!
kahlua141-you are in my prayers for BFP, you are doing everything right so, I had cramps too and got BFP, there's hope!
Mystery77- happy to hear things are going better for you and the bleeding has stopped. you are in my prayers
rose33 AND verysoon- will keep checking up on you both and sending lots of baby dust your way.
Welcome!!!! I had cramps left and right and was bleeding for 3 days, now Iam 5 weeks and 2 days preggo thanks to GOD. That is normal symptons of implantation. everything will be fine, stay positive and you know, now we are here to help with the 2ww because we all know that is the worst part of all. I will keep you and your lil beans in my prayers. XOXOXOXOXO
sis2399- Thank you so much for the friend request. I really and truly now hope it is implantation bleeding...when I woke up this morning I saw a little more. I was supposed to go in today and work at the office. But I just sent my boss a note that I was working from home today. I decided to keep my feet up. I am praying and trying very hard not to panic. I have that Crampy feeling and today its on the left. I am so very happy for you and your story did make me feel better!
boulove- so sorry to hear that your's did not work out to freeze :-(
Rose33- I will keep you in my prayers and cheers to us both having BFP on Monday!
kahlua141 - thank you!
I am trying very hard not to test from home.....or call my nurse crying again.
Had my second beta today and it was 817 so all appears to be fine and no bleeding since Saturday! Got 7 week scan booked for 14th July. How have you all been told to calculated how pregnant you are? I had a 5 day transfer and was told you count from 2 weeks before the ET but on the internet I read you take it from 2 weeks before ER. So I was a little surprised when the nurse said I was 4 weeks today!
I cant believe it! I am over the moon, i just got back my 2nd BETA it is 690, it went up from 215 in just two days..God is answering all my prayers! Stick babies stick! I was soo excited to hear the news i started to cry tears of joy. I know i'm not out of the clear yet stick have another BETA and then the scans. But so far so good.
Wishing you all the same luck which seems to be rubbing off all the other BFP women on this thread!
noticed few blue veins on my chest and breasts this morning... do u think it's a good sign? I was very happy when I first saw that but then remembered that I've seen this few times before but probably didn't pay much attention. prob when I was PMSing....
I had tranfer on tues .: tranferred 2 embryos and have 2 frozen ... I'm on estrace and pio shots .. My lower back is killing me .. Do u think it's from all the bed rest?? Other than that light cramps but nothing out of the norm. I plan NOT to poas until beta!

soo I POAS and got a faint line...pls look at the pic I uploaded and tell me what you think ladies...it's faint but I read it is positive no matter how faint it is.... hope not a false negative though! I am 8dp3dt and my hcg shot was 2 weeks ago...
That is a defienant line..woo hoo!!! Congrats, but just to be sure try again in a couple of days because if you are 8dp3dt your trigger shot was 11 days ago and it can take up to 15...But i am sure this is it!!!! How amazing...maybe it is 2????
Kahlua141- congratulations sweetie, good number.. Sending you sticky vibes that your next BETA is very very good:)
Rose33- Looks positive to me! when is your first BETA?
Mystery77- Congratulations looks like you and I are around same time. what day did you transfer? I'm confused as well how many weeks i am? Last period was on first day May 24th, Retrieval was on june 5th and Transfer was on June 10th.. so am i 4 weeks and one day? So confusing the nurse told me i am three or 4 weeks pregnant... Aren't i officially 2weeks pregnant if i look at gestation of how embryo is growing?
Verysoon - thanks for your friend request! I have had stomach cramps since 4dpET and got my BFP 6 days ago. I also had one incident of spotting which also caused me to panic. Stay positive, not long left to wait now and you have joined the luckiest forum ever :)
Kahlua - CONGRATULATIONS!!!! So pleased for you
Rose - Excellent news! I didn't take any HPT's so I'm no expert on them but things are looking good!
Vero - Congrats on your transfer, great to hear you've also got a couple in the freezer! I also had lower backache around that time which I attributed to additional time in bed and lack of exercise.
Boulove - My ER was 4th June and ET 9th June so we're a day apart. With a normal preganancy you start calculating from the day of your last period, so if you are 4 weeks pregnant, your embryo is actually only about 2 weeks old. IVF seems to be done from 2 weeks before either ER or ET. Today (Wednesday) I am 4 weeks and 2 days per my ER but if I went to Hopeitsmymonth's ER I would be 5 weeks - very strange!!
Krichar... I know what you mean...I am trying to be cautiously optimistic just in case it was to soon and the hcg shot is still in my system. Tested again this morning and got the same result..... will test again on Sun....
mystery & verysoon- Most RE calculate due date by 2 weeks before your ER, That would technically be the first day of our lmp. It is so much more confussing with IVF but at the same time we know exactly what is going on!
Rose- Try not to worry too much...like i said that is most likely an amazing reason to celebrate. If the line is still there than it is probably your dreams coming true...I am so happy for you!!!!
AFM- Still a lot cautious. When the nurse called to give me my results i just said thanks, very calmly. She asked if i had taken an hpt and i said yes then she asked if DH and I are over the moona nd i had to reply not really. How sad is that? She seemed confused and i said with what happened last time it is really hard to get excited again. We bought everything after our first u/s last time. We were told that after a HB was found miscarriage goes down to about 2% and i have spent 4 months staring at a room filled with boxes of baby furniture and things. Maybe i will excited after my NT scan at 12 weeks! Sorry to be a downer...just needed to share :(
Hello everyone, I hvent been around too much latetly but OMG Ive been so sick with the most horrible heartburn ever, I even ended up in the hospital thinking I was having late OHSS. It was nuttin bad and doctor said it was just pregnancy synptoms. I am happy for the feelings even thought they hurt so much cause they remind me everyday of my blessing. I have heartburn because Im pregnant wow!!!!! Im actually enjoying this. Well cause I ended up in the hospital Wednesday, they did a u/s and I was able to see the sac and the little yolk in there. I have to go again for my official u/s on the 30th, next wednesday. Hoping to hear baby's heart beat. yay!!!!!!!
I had my egg retrival on 5/31 and my u/s is on June 30th that is 4 weeks 1 day, well doctor said I should count 2 weeks before retrievel so on my u/s day I will be 6 weeks 2 days. I dont get it but ok.
kahlua - Congratulations!!!!!!! I knew U were gonna get a BFP you started this thread and the majority of us are noe preggo, Happy and healthy 9 months.
Kahlua - don't remind me about the extra pounds courtesy of several IUI's and IVF this year! I think I already look like I'm showing but that's just me having put on weight. Trying to brave weighing myself so at least I know what weight I was at the beginning of pregnancy and can monitor how much I gain but I'm too scared!
Sissi - so sorry you were in hospital, hope you feel better soon. No heartburn for me, yet!
Dang that AF! Hope the next month will provide you with lots of rest and get your body ready for a successful cycle in August.
Mystery77-- no heartburn for me either. Keep reading about everyone with heartburn but I got nada. In fact, all I have it a desire to sleep and pee... and eat anything salty. As for your question regarding exercise, my doc told me to lay off during 2ww and take it easy up to first u/s. I've done a little walking, but my abdomen is still pretty tender and walking for long becomes a little sore, not to mention exhausting. I walk around Target and need to rest when I'm done shopping. HA! RE did mention swimming. Said it took all of the pressure off the joints, was refreshing, etc. My u/s is Monday, so I plan to start some exercise after that. Lots of luck to you!
Hi all !
So sorry been gone agine this estren that they have me on I think is causeing my headakes and pains on my side any one eles have that ??? well any ways apptment on Monday will set a for sure date for FET !
CONGRATS to all BFP :-) Pass on the baby luck !
So sorry to hear about the few BFN :-( I fell your pain and you are in my prayers ! HANG IN THERE !
mystery77- i was advised not to exercise (im a personal trainer so was advised not to do any exercising except for walking) its been hard for me especially now having taken of working out and can see cellulite, but i am sure that its also because i stopped exercising i was also able to get preggers so keep reminding myself, more important to wait til 1st trimester is over before i can pick up weights again, i just watch what i eat more, everytime i want something sweet (have a sweet tooth) i eat a piece of fruit, it actually works to sustain me.
sis-no heart burn for me yet.. funny no real symptoms except for sore breast, had cramps until they started me on progesterone shots, now i dont get cramps any more. Just severe bloating every time after i eat.
kahlua141-great news on your BETA, sending more baby sticky dust your way.
hoping4baby2009-stay positive babe, it took me several tries as well before it worked. I did do a couple of things this time i didn't do last time, ie. quit caffeine no coffee or tea, i did accupuncture and meditated daily for 5-10mins. Ate a lot of veggies and protein. Good luck it willhappen.
baby4me2hold- they're probably side effects from the meds. I only had mild cramping two days before first BETA along with sore boobs and bloating from meds. Try not to read too much into the Signs as everyone is different. Wishing you lots of luck with your BETA.
Well I am usually very positive and advising every1 that they should be too. Today Im not positive at all, I am so sad and very very concerned.
Yesterday I was in the Emergency Room since 2pm till 1am today, Yesterday at around 1 in the afternoon, I was walking int he house and felt wet, went to the bathroom and it was blood. OMG!!! I cried for like an hour before I could actually get up and go to the hospital. I was sure I had miscarried, Once in the ER they made me wait 2 hours to see me, the bleeding stoped after one hour and it was gone when I saw the doctor.
They called my RE and he came and did an u/s and blood work. They didnt let me look at the monitor when they were scanning my baby. Well doctor said it was a threathning abortion but that my baby was safe inside me. I dont know what to think. I have to go back on Wednesday for a follow up. Im so anxious! Im so sad too. Please please pray for me and my baby. Im trying to be positive but is being very difficult. I believe in GOD 100% and the faith on him is the only feeling keeping me up today, hours are dragging and it is going to be a looooooonnnnngggggg wait till wednesday.
I hope you are all doing better then me and will keep praying for you and your babies. May GOD bless you all.
First u/s today after first IVF. Went in at 6w1d but measured 5w6d. Saw nada... well, saw a sack he measured but no flicker. I'm told this is entirely normal. RE said 6 1/2 weeks is typically when a heartbeat can be detected but I was so hoping I'd be like some who posted they had a confirmed heartbeat sooner. ARRGGHHH I know his telling me I'm in early pregnancy stages should be sufficient but now I get to sit and worry and wonder for another 10 days. Just shoot me now!
sis- Try to remain calm and positive..I am praying for you and your baby...I am sure it will be okay..
thr0819- If they told you not too worry..I would not...I did not see a heartbeat with my son until 7 weeks and he is a healthy 2 year old! The waiting is killin me.. ..i will be happy when we are past 12 weeks..how do you know how far you are??..
Congrats to all the BFP with great Beta's! I pray that all continue to go well for you!
For those like me with BFP with lower beta's and spotting with slight side/back pain. I totally understand your pain. But stay positive and keep your faith! just remember everytime you think about something negative to say a little prayer instead. It's been working for me all day since I got the news.
Those with BFN I am keeping you all in my prayers as well. Please don't give up! Keep praying!
tr0819 - Dont worry like the doctor said the reason you didnt see or hear the heartbeat is because your baby is too small, that is nothing bad, dont think negative, everything eill be fine, you will see, you and your baby are in my prayers. Think this way 4 of July weekend is almost here and Monday the 5th is a Holiday and those days always fly by. Next time you will be posting great news I can feel it. Smile God is blessing you. Please pray for me and my baby, we really need it
Rose33 - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!! What was your number? Happy and healthy nine months. XOXOXOXOXO FOR YOU AND BABY......
Verysoon - 24 is not bad I have herd of as low as 10 and resulting of healthy babies. You just implanted late, Dont stress, everything will be fine, We both have to go back to doctor on Wednesday and we will both have great news to post. God is on out side on this one. Lost of sticky baby dust going your way, Will pray for both of us from now till Wednesday for good news. Remember GOD is listening and he loves us so lets bug him with our prayers to keep our babies, he wont say know. lol "trying to stay positive here"
May God Bless us all...!!!!!
Thank you ALL for the encouraging words and the prayers
sis-i sweetheart, i read your journal and really felt your pain and fear. However, it looks like you and the baby are strong, its protected inside you. I am praying that everyworks out well for you on weds which i know in my heart it will. Just make sure to get a lot of relaxation next couple of days and stay away from anyone who stresses you out. I told my parents and brother that i would call them after July 15th with results they dont even know that i'm preggers, both my mom and brother totally stress me out at times, lovely people unfortunately you need to be selfish right now and look after you and baby. Keep telling yourself your baby is strong and God wants you to have this baby! Thinking of you praying for you and your baby...
kahlua141-your U/S is three days before mine.. Looks like we are near each other for due date as well.. Remember to eat smaller meals throughout the day, i eat 5 - 6 small meals instead of three large meals, eat like you are eating for one not for two.. If you change and eat more veggies, protein and fruits and veggies plus no white bread or white pasta stick to whole grains you will not put on more then you need to going further and feel better, plus baby gets all the vital nutrients.. Praying for us both for good U/S next week:)
Tr0819-Please try not to stress about the u/s as it really was too early to get a heart beat. Your BETA's were really high so i'm sure all will be fine with your 2nd U/S. Enjoy the holiday weekend with family and friends. Praying for you as well:)
Rose33-Congratultionas on your BFP, Lots of sticky vibes your way for the next 9 months.
Verysoon-Try to be positive sweetie. I read that BETA is only a number, it just needs to double every two days.. Lots of women with Low Betas go off to have healthy pregnancies same as women with strong BETA's. Its just a way to make sure your HCG level is rising. You are especially in my prayers today and tonight for DOUBLE DOUBLE DOUBLE numbers!
I agree Rose33 this group is amazing and I am so very glad that I found it! Thank you all so very much for your prayers. I am praying for you guys also every night.
I am trying not to worry and trying to stay off the websites doing my own research b/c that is not helping me at all! I just want the back/side pain and spotting to stop and my numbers to rise! Or I'll even just take rising numbers...lol! I know God has brought me to this point for a reason and I trust in him. So,. I will just keep praying.
Hugs to all of you, I will post as soon as the nurse calls me back on Wed.
Talked to DR office yesterday i will be on the birthcontrol pills till sometime in Aug was told to only take the active ones until they tell me to stop. then when af arrives again we will start meds again
CRYING!!!!!! debastated cause I am convinced I miscarried my baby Sunday, I passed something that I described to the doctor and he said it could be mocus, but I read another post here on MedHelp on another subject and a girl that had a miscarriage discribed the exact same thing I saw on that day, plus my syntomps are all gone..... SOOOOOO sad and have no more tears to cry. Wont be able to look at an empty u/s screem tomorrow whiout braking into pieces..... I guess Im out this time
sisi- i know its hard not to worry but there is still the possibility it is just mucous like your dr said. i will be praying for both you and your baby.
rose33-thats a great number.. will keep you in my prayers for DOUBLE numbers for your next BETA.
Verysoon-I know its hard not to look at the internet, sometimes i stay off for a couple days it helps me not to stress or read to much into my symptoms, sometimes taking a break away from reading about pregnancy is good. Wishing you luck and praying for large numbers for your next BETA.
Vero1125-Congratulations...wishing you double numbers as well for your next BETA..
Try your hardest not to worry...I know it is hard. Just wait and see. I am so sorry your are going through this. This emotional rollercoaster is never an easy thing. I am praying for you and your baby and that all will be ok!
Sorry i have been MIA, just trying to stay busy. I have been so worried about this pregnancy that the best cure has been to not think about it at all. Of course i still take my meds and eat properly and take care of myself...but until i feel safe it is hard to truly enjoy! Geez...i feel like such a downer! Sorry gals!
Well girls is official, I miscarried on Sunday. Thanks for all the prayers and kind words they really help in moments like this. I cried and now Im better. We will do it again next month so hey just trying to keep my chin up. Good luck to all of you still in the run, I will continue to pray for you and your babies.
Just giving an update. My levels went up to 89. I have an u/s on July 16 but I decided to go back in on Friday just to triple check and get another set of numbers. She said the bleeding may be that one baby implanted slower than another or just not at all. Or she said it just may be bleeding and as long as there is no pain or clots not to panic. I am very excited but still nervous b/c i'm not out of the water yet. Still praying everyday.
Verysoon- Yah for doubling ! This beginning seems as hard as the tww
as for me I am trying to stay positive but looking foward to 7/7 when i know more..its amazing how incredibly hard this journey is...I just found out my best friend is pregnant (not planned or desired) and her biggest concern is how will they afford it,,,we r in in such opposite places as i am so concerned my pregnancy might not last..
Isn't it just mind boggling how different every situation is. I have a friend as well not sure how they will afford another child that was conceived naturally, and here my DH and I sit literally spending tens of thousands of dollars and praying unceasingly just to have one. Also, I teach and had a colleague this past spring chit chatting outside my door about how she and her husband really wanted to wait a while but she pregnant and just didn't know how to plan summer vacations around it all. I wanted to scream! I know I can't blame any of them for my not having children yet, but things like that kill me when I'm trying so hard to be positive and and not worry. Our day will come though. I'm certain of that!

baby4me- the heating pad helped as well! Still sore at timesi but keep reminding myself of the benefits!
trh0819- I know ..it is crazy how different sitautions can be..i teach too and it was crazy how many moms were pregnant! Are u having many symptomd? Other then tired i feel pretty good..makes me worried..how r u hanging in there?
Yes, it will certainly will be worth it. I joked with my DH that I cannot wait for the first time our child tells me how mean I am for something ridiculous. Oh really? Mean? Ummm, I was poked and prodded for months, I stressed like never before, I cried often, I peed constantly, I felt miserable, I gained weight, and I paid thousands of dollars for ALL of those things to happen and prayed they'd continue every day for months just so I could have you. Now who's the mean one? HA!
Symptoms are about the same. Tired. Lots of time in the bathroom. Random cramps. A little nausea here and there but not consistent times throughout the day. Car rides are unpleasant. My nurse called yesterday because I was freaking out about something ridiculous. She she my beta from Monday's 6 week u/s was 17000+ so I should try to relax a bit. She reminded me that if the RE had any reason for concern, he'd not sugar coat anything, so I needed to enjoy this and not worry. Okay. I'll stop worrying.. NOW.
Nope, didn't work. I am incredibly thankful, however, that I am on summer break. Otherwise, I fear I might actually get fired for hurting someone :-)
I have also been feeling quite good! Sometimes i wonder if I just don't notice things as much because I felt pretty awful during the IVF. Had I get pregnant naturally and started off feeling on top form maybe I would have noticed more of a difference. Also been feeling very tired, lots of trips to the toilet (especially at night which can't be helping with point one!) and random stomach cramps. I think a few more symptoms would be reassuring but I suspect the minute they arrive I'll be wishing they hadn't!
UPDATE: Beta went from 42.2 to 114.. OMG Im 3wks 3 days Pregnant...my baby is due on March 14, 2010. Next ultrasound appt on July 8th. Im soooo happy..... My heart could explode with Joy... Praise God.. To all the Glory be unto You!!
Just a quick update about me. I am feeling a little better today, me and hubby went to a water park with friends and family, had a relaxing time most of the time even thought there were times where I just wasnt present and very quite. I guess time will help me feel better little by little.
I hope you all are doing very good, I will keep praying for you and your babies. Will stay in touch. May God Bless you all!!!!
Vero - CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I can feel the joy in your update, enjoy it and please please take care and take it easy. Much much healthy and happy pregnancy dust going your way.
Looks like i might be out. Took an hpt to see if the lines got darker...it said negative. I guess i am finally getting my real beta. Going to the RE tomorrow to get it done but i am not hopeful at all. Just trying to nurse another broken heart again!
My sad update. They dont think that this is going to work. Beta went from 24 to 89 to 91...so not good! I am still bleeding and now its a different color red and the cramps are back. I go back in on Tuesday for one last check before I come off meds and let nature take its course.
We then talk about FET I have 8 eggs to work with so I am praying that our gift is in there somewhere. I wish I could explain the sad that I have right now. I went to go get my hair done so I wouldn't look as bad as I felt. That soooo didnt work just kept pushing back tears in the chair. I know this too shall pass. But my word it's hard to come so far and get hopes up and BAM. But I still have my faith and that is the only reason im not in a looney bin. I will keep you all posted and I hope you have a blessed and safe Holiday,
verysoon- I am so sorry ,,but you are right..with 8 left your gift is there waiting for u ......when i had the chemical in march the loss was so difficult but once i got going again i felt better almost immediately..try to relax the best you can..we are all here for you..
krichar- is something else going on? wait..and see what the numbers say today..I was thinking about doing an hpt also because of such few symptoms..not sure if i should just wait till wed..prayers are with u
sisi- it was good to here from u..staying busy helps alot...starting again was the best healer..please keep in touch and let us know how u r and what are your plans..your faith was very inspiring!
verysoon-i'm really sorry to hear the news. I know its hard to accept. But the good news is that you do have 8 frozen embies and plenty of women get pregnant with their frozen embies 2nd time around. You wont have to go through the whole retrieval again and i'm sure you'll be more relaxed because of that. I know you'll be pregnant on your next try. Dont lose faith babe:)
krichar-i am praying for you that all is well. You were scheduled for your scan near me, did something happen? Here if you need a friend.
I am a little nervous,yeserday was my 6 week 1 day, i handed one of my pt clients a 12kg dumbell then felt cramp in my upper abdominal, i quickly gave it to him. I can't belive i was so stupid to pick up the weight.. i didnt tell him i was pregnant until after because i then asked him to get all of his own weights... i'm a personal trainer so it's a little difficult to not hand clients weights.
anyway, it felt strange, it was a different kind of cramp not like in my lower pelvis, it felt a little strained for about 1 min after the client i went home and rested and then went out for one more client.
i felt normal, made dinner then played backgammon with my husband, when i stood up i felt like i was bleeding, turns out that it was just a little, pinkesh brown it wasnt a full bleed but it alarmed me because i have not had any spotting at all. My nurse said that i might bleed from the crinone 8% i am taking.
I only bled for 1sec or so and decided to take my progesterone tablets and more crinone and went to bed. I live in singapore so its actually now tues 9:41am for me when it's probably 8:41pm for most of you if you live in the USA.
My DH was very supportive told me not to get negative and not to worry and call the nurse in the morning, he claims it did not look like a fresh bleed, but i could swear it was but when i checked it this morning it was brown and i had just a little spotting when i woke up which was brown.
I called drs office they are terrible about calling back quickly. I dont know if i should go on about my day today, i only had a lunch with girlfriends scheduled or if i should lay in bed all day.
I was wondering if any of you had this and if i should be alarmed... i'm regretting having picked up that weight and been praying to god all night and am to please let me keep this baby i wont pick up another weight again.
i have my first U/S on this friday will be 6 week 5days, wondering if i should ask to take another beta today or if i should just wait and if i wait should i not go to work?
Sammy-welcome to the tww, we're here should you have any questions along the way.
Happy i went in to see the dr. Turns out all is well. I heard my baby's heartbeat. It brought tears to my eyes. Turns out we have one baby, we put back two embies. The Dr gave me a little additional meds since i had some spotting last night with strict orders not to pick up any more weights. I go back for my second U/S on july 20th then we're off to Bali on June 21st-26th to our summer home for long wedding anniversary weekend. I live in Singapore and the flight is only 2.5hrs, Dr said ok to go he just wants to scan me before i leave.
We were suppose to go to South of France to visit DH's family august 6-21st i"ll be 10weeks + 4days. The Dr said it should be ok to go but i am still debating if i want to cancel the europe trip. I guess we'll see how things go in the next couple of weeks.
So glad your posts ended in good news - I am so jealous that you've heard your babies heart beat that's fantastic. I was actually just taking a break from unpacking boxes as we moved 3 months ago and the house still isn't properly sorted. Decided I should do it myself or it'll still be like this at Christmas! Anyway, I'm stopping right now!!!
Have found the last couple of days really tough. I think the original excitement of getting my BFP has transgressed into complete disbelief that it can be true. 2.5 weeks since my BFP and I am yet to see or feel anything. Have even been considering calling the clinic and pretending I slipped down the stairs in the hope they'll give me another beta or even an u/s!
