Sounds like it may be promising! Mine didn't have the blood-vessel look, but they got noticeable blue veins all over them. And, gosh, last night I took my bra off and was amazed...it looked like I had a boob job! LOL. I felt the queasiness, too, from about 8DPO. Well, girl, keep me updated. I'm going to be thinking of you! Happy Thanksgiving!

It sounds like something is up! I can tell you that, even though I didn't want to get my hopes up and be disappointed, I just *knew something was different. And, honestly, I did start testing at 8 DPO...but I wasted a lot of tests because they were all negative until 12 DPO. Of course, you hear some women say they tested positive at 9 or 10 DPO...for me, there wasn't even the slightest *hint of a line until 12 DPO. I'd hate for you to test, then have it come out negative. I know it's easier said than done...but can you wait a few more days? I'll be thinking of you and sending out positive thoughts!

Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks for that Liza...I have been using a digital thermometer thats around 36 37 (not sure if thats farenheit or celcius) maybe I should change to the other type before I start my next month chart???

Oh, gosh...I hope you're right! I'm so anxious...I just keep thinking that I'm wrong, and I'm going to start my period. I'm having some CM, and every time I feel a little moist, I run to the bathroom because I'm SURE I've started. But, not a trace so far. I'm hoping the test tomorrow morning will be more definitive. I'd love to try a digital, but I'm thinking the hcg isn't high enough yet since it's barely making a line on the FRER. :::sigh::: Waiting *****! ;-)

Yes I did have that test..and according to my RE it was great..I ovulate every month and am always regular on my periods..So my RE was very puzzled that I didnt respond well to stims..this was my 1st IVF but 2nd time on stims..I didnt respond well the 1st time so we canceled IVF and changed my meds protocol and still very low response.. and we pay everything out of pocket...I will most likely ask for my medical records and get a second opinion...I really did like my RE but if he isnt willing to do more to help me then I will definetly change my RE...he did give me options for embryo donation and egg donation..but none of those are guarantees either...we have talked about adoption, that might be our route..I think I will take some time to think about all of this...

Hi Lisa, thanks for your comment about Connor...to answer some of your questions, I've kinda cooled out with TTC...if it happens great, but I'm not obsessing like before.  I have no idea what my levels of hormones are or length of luteal phase is...honestly, some of these terms I didn't even know about til I joined this forum.  I know that you are trying really hard to become pregnant, and I have responded to most of your posts...and I hate to repeat myself, but, I just think when you try to disect every single symptom you'll make yourself insane!!!  I definitely know I am perimenopausal, so alot of my irregularities and body aches are due to that.  I'm cheering for ya though...and anxciously waiting for your BFP posting!!  Take good care!  Pam

Hi Lisa, Yes unfortunately we know for absolute certain that was her.  I don't understand the motivation except that perhaps she is a bit unstable, and was looking for attention.  I too am saddened by it, but MedHelp has dealt with the situation.  I also don't believe everything she wrote in her journal's was true.  There were just far too many inconsistancies, and when questioned about them she would get very angry and/or just delete the journal.  I too was taken in, but at least we know we were trying to help.  Please don't let this isolated incident keep you away.  Most here are really great people.  Unfortunately, Its inevitable we will get the odd "off" person.  I hope you choose to stay around, you offer so much to the other women here.  Take good care.  Amanda

I am 35 and it seems like there are no major reasons for me to have such trouble.  My amh is undetectable and my fsh is 9.6.  I have gained 10 lbs in hopes that it helps my hormones.  The dr. says that he sees no reason for me not to be able to carry a baby.  I am 7 weeks now using clomid. I have had 5 m/c's in the past - hopefully this is the lucky one...

Hey Lisa...

Good to hear from you. Glad to hear you are feeling better about trying naturally. No Miller isn't mine, but isn't he the cutest? ;o) Glad you stopped by to say hi.

Hey Lisa, I'm hoping you don't get AF tomorrow.  Mine is due then too, but so far no sign of her.  I am actually watching all the US election stuff with great interest, its a fascinating year.  We just had our federal election, and I wasn't even as interested in that, although the party I wanted did win!!!  Good luck tomorrow!!

That is great about the reimbursement, but cruddy about af. I'm pretty much the same state of mind. I have always wanted a baby. Started trying at 18. I was shocked when I got pg at 40. All it did was give me hope again. I'm not disillusioned, I know it may never happen again. But, there is always that chance :) So, I'll keep after it the old fashioned way. If is does it, great. If not, I'll be ok. My life is pretty darn good :)

I am sorry af showed. It is hard to keep going sometimes. In fact, I did give up in my 30's. It just broke my heart every cycle and I couldn't do it any more. Then, when I met my new dh, we decided to try any way. And magically, I got pg on the 1st try. Sadly, I lost him to a torn placenta. But, now I know it CAN happen. That is all that keeps me going now. I don't know if it will, just that it is possible. Don't give up!

Hi Lisa thanks so much for your note. I was thinking it might be a good idea to take a month break from IVF especially because I am moving a house in four weeks. I bought a new flat in January this year and I have been renovating it for the last three months. It has been very difficult to handle IVF and renovations at the same time. On top of that having no support system is getting to me. As for miscarriages - both happened many years ago. We had previously tried three month clomid and many artificial inseminations but all failed. Unfortunatelly my husband did not agree to do IVF so only since we separated I could give IVF a try - but it might be now too late.

Hi Lisa, no unfortunatelly bad luck - as it is to be on Friday the13th. After waking up I was told that my follicle did not contain an egg. RE said that it is not that uncommon and especially after stimulation it happens more often. I was very upset. I decided to take a month break and try and get more positive attitude. I am still going for my acupuncture every two weeks. How are you? Your Irish wedding is getting closer.
