rach- Thanks for starting a new thread! I read about your transfer and it sounds like you guys had excellent embryos! Thats great! Hopefully you will get your BFP!
everyone doing betas this week- Good Luck guys!!! I hope you all get BFP's!!!
AFM- we decided to go through with the cycle. I am currently taking lupron and BCP, and will start stimming 7/12. Our ER will be (7/22-7/24) and ET (7/27-7/29). My DH is in the navy and going to africa on 7/29, so I really really hope he is here for transfer! I really hope this works for everyone this time.
Super Super Sticky Baby Dust To All!!!!!!!
Ladies, my beta is due thursday, and I have to ask is anyone experiencing pinching and pressure. I did a hpt (yes I caved) it was positive, but I know that is not a guarantee. How do you feel?
Hopeful- It's great that your cycle has started. Once you start stimming, it will fly by! I really hope DH is around for the ET. Keep us up to date throughout.
mona- OMGoodness! How many days ago was your trigger..... if it was 10,000iu...and it's been 10 days... I bet it's a true +++++++..... are you going to test so more in the next few days???
OMG mona, that is sooo cool!!! I bet it's right!!! How exciting. :o) My beta is scheduled for Wed. but I'm waaaay to scared to test ;o) I want to though!!! Not sure if I should...
My trigger was on the 23rd of last month. rxyrxx919 If you have the strength wait, because now I'm like ok what if I am not and this hpt stick says yes. I am pulling my hair out. I'm glad you go first rxyrxx919. LOL Best of luck to us all. This is a very important week for us!
Mona- Congrats! That's great! Can't wait to hear your beta number:)
Rachjas- Congrats on your perfect blastocysts and having three to freeze:) Youa re so lucky! I know it is going to work for you!
rxy- I can't wait to hear about your positive result on Wed.
I wanted to update that I am not taking bc pills anymore. I am still taking Lupron 10 units a day and will start Gonal F and Menopur on Thursday, so I have not started the stims yet. I have an appt. tomorrow for baseline b/w and u/s. I am excited and scared about this upcoming IVF.
Does anyone know if bedrest is recommended after both a three day transfer and a five day transfer?
mona---- That's such a + then!!!!! I am so happy for you!
kmcarino- I will update your info tmw! Have faith sweetie! Remember, stress isn't good during cycling! I think the bed rest thing is totally depending on your RE. I was told simply to take it really ease the rest of the day of ET and just easy the from there on out bc my ovaries were still huge.
rachjas0623 - Tks for doing the updating. I really want to help but I can't keep up. I kind of wish we all had normal names. It would be easier to remember. :))
Good luck for friday beta. I am crossing everything there is to cross!!! How are you feeling. Any different things going on in your body you are noticing? I am only 1 dpt and I am already starting to obsess about every little twinge happening in my tummy. I think I have started to cramp like AF is getting closer just like I normally would.
mona2176 - did you do the test 8dpt? That is when I am going to test well I think I will start testing 6dpt so I am early enough to get a negative which then will tell me the trigger and all hormones is out of my body. Then I will test every day from then on.
I hope yours is the one!!!!!!!!!! First time IVF I tested I got positive and then next day negative but beta was positive so it can be so confusing. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
kmcarino - My doc said to carry on like normal after transfer. Yesterday I still got my mother in law to take care of my son for half the day so I had a 3 hour rest on the couch.
I just got the call. We got 1 embryo frozen. It is amazing out of so many that only 2 makes it to blastocyst. For everyone that has done the transfer already do they show you on a screen the embryo with your name next to it? Isn't it cool to see a start to another life growing? I know we all wish we didn't have to go through all this to have our babies and it is so hard. But for me seeing that little embryo I would not have missed out on. It is amazing. Ok waterworks starting....
Hopeful2BPreggy: GREAT NEWS!!! 06/29 deployment??? That's cutting it sO close! I'm happy to read you're staying and continuing, though. Awesome!!! :)))
mona2176: No pinching, here. Slight pressure when I go for walks. It just may be me, though. I worry about every little thing. All I do is take a 20 min. walk w/DH everyday. Or, sometimes I walk @Walmart* or the supermarket, but not too long. I get nauseaous. I feel best at home. ;)
Tomorrow when they call me with my beta resutls should I ask for a number??? If so, what do the numbers mean?

anetski- When is your beta?
rxy- I bet they will tell you your HCG #! For my clinic They would like to see above 50 for when I am getting tested...Now, that could be different for you depending on your lab, how many days past O, etc.... Then, they look for it to double about every other day.
a_muse- Getting so close to your beta! Getting nauseaous? That could be a great sign!
Mona- Any more tests?
I thot I was moving on to the next stage of my IVF journey today but it turns out I'm not expected back at the hospital until 7/14. I just seem like a long time of nothing. I will be having a scan on that day to know if I responded well to the Zoladex. That now determines what injections I'll start on 7/15. I am anxious to know how the Zoladex has worked.
I have been keeping up with all your post but just feeling too low & tired to respond.I would like to wish everybody waiting to do their beta, good luck. I wish you all bfp!! :)
Mona CONGRATS!! I believe this is a start to the BFPs we'll all be getting on this forum.
hopeful - Glad you are going ahead with the IVF. I also hope your husband will be around for ER and ET. May I ask where in Africa your husband is visiting?
Babydust to All and God bless.
Hello :o) I just took hpt (couldn't help it) & BFP!!! OMG I hope it's the real thing!!! Years and years of ttc and maybe this is it for us!!!! Won't be completley confident until tomorrow's beta...
rxy- It soo has to be +++++ ... you are way past trigger!!!! I am sure tmw's beta will be great!
rxy - I hope this is it. BFP! That is so exciting.
Anyone having symptoms? Or are they cramping like AF is coming? I cramped like AF was coming and I got my BFP the first time.
I want it so bad but how can I get BFP on the first go twice. I am scared I am askingt o much.
My beta is 17July. Testing sunday and then every day from then. Nuts I know.
Good luck everyone for their Beta's this week. I am going to be glued to this computer!!!!
4everwealth- Yes I took another test and it is positive. I believe I got twins in here! I'm stretching too fast and feel back pain already! I have a ten year old son and two previous pregnancies that failed and none felt this way. Hoping the Beta will confirm!
mona & rxy- Congrats to you both!!! It sounds like you guys are going to get good news from your betas! How exciting!!
rach & A-Muse- good luck on your betas this week!
A_Muse and 4ever- Yeah I know we are cutting it majorly close, but with his crazy schedule and school in the fall it was now or never. I don't really know where he's going... somewhere of the coast of africa. I'm not sure but I do know we won't be able to talk to each other for a couple weeks. I'm just praying he gets to come home to a wonderful surprise!
I took my last BCP today and I am so glad I get to start stimming on sunday. I'm doing bravelle and menopur with lupron. Any one else go that route?
Super Sticky Baby Dust Everybody!!! Let's all get BFP's!!!
rxy- Congratulations! That is so exciting! And yes, I would definitely ask what your HCG level is when you get your blood test results tomorrow.
mona- Two positive hpts! That is great!
As for me, my appt went well this morning and my levels are fine so we are good to go...stims on Thursday which I will probably be on for 12 days.
i am relatively new to this forum and have been reading into everyone's stories...this is really a good place to share your feelings!!!
i am in the 2WW and will get my beta done on the 14th...however i was a little confused with the HPT...dunno whether i should do it or not...also what is the best time to get it done...today is my 8dpt :)..some say i should start today...
congratulations to all who got the BFP!!! and good luck to all waiting for the result :)
how did everyone feel a few days after ET? I am on day 2 after ET and I am cramping quite alot.
i had started cramping on D3 and felt like AF was on its way on D4...i am feeling relatively better now :)
How are you feeling now? Are you still cramping? Are you going to test?
am good...no cramping now...so i am a little confused...dunno what's going on inside...
this is my 3rd attempt (ICSI)...dont have the heart to take anymore negatives...so am planning to wait till D10 to do the HPT...
when would your AF be due? Mine is due on day 8pt which is tuesday next week but is it normal to be late in an ivf cycle?
