Just spoke with my doc. She does believe its a positive for sure. But its a low positive. And so I need to be cautious. Have to repeat the test tomorrow again. This entire thing is so stressful. At this point of time, I am thanking to even know that there is a possibility that I can get pregnant.

Courtney: I am sorry to hear about your dad. DHs granddad has Alzheimer's, and I know its very difficult to deal with. I will pray for strength for you and family to deal with this situation.

Faith: Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts all the time. I am in love with the fact how much we all care and give credence to each others thoughts. Have you O'd yet??

Danaa: Thank you for the page. I am pretty ok with the name. I am hoping its going to bring in luck for all of us. Just to believe in the thought, that it is a new beginning. Yay for awesome second beta. I can't wait to hear about your scan now. Keeping fxed for your beautiful twins.

Whoz: Thanks a bunch for keeping me in your thoughts. How are you? Are you moving ahead with IUI next month?

Star, Fly, Andi, Angela, Loz: I hope all you girls are doing great.

Just for kicks, after i heard the beta today, I took a FRER around 11:35 A.M. (probably 3rd or 4th urine of the day). And I got this line. Ladies, please pray that I have a late implanter and a sticky bean in there. At this point of time, I am looking for a miracle.

Nickysy: I am sorry it is not doubling like they want. I'm praying the bean is just having a slow start. I'm looking forward to hearing what your Dr has to say. Hugging you tightly.

Danaa: I think I'm Oing right now??? I don't know anymore. We bd the previous day's. I'm just pooped. Seems like we try every possible day of cycle and nothing. My mind is leaning towards not bd in anymore this cycle and just enjoy scary October. Well better get some shut eye.

Faith: Thank you. But honestly, I am feeling hope after a long time. My betas are low, and I need to be cautious, but its given me courage that I am indeed capable of being pregnant. And it will happen for us when its the right time. Doc has asked me to continue my progesterone and other meds, and get a repeat done. I read somewhere though that below 1200 units, bhcg doubling time can vary between 48-72 hours. Right now, mine is at 64 hours. So I am keeping my fingers crossed. Thank you for keeping my bean in your prayers.

Nicky - holding out hope for you as well! it sounds like you have a wonderful outlook. Xoxo

Dana - you relax and kick those feet up girl!

Courtney - I hope you're hanging in there with everything that's going on.

Faith - sounds like you ovulated, fx for you!

Afm - getting a big nervous for the big day. 35 weeks today. Still get cramps and contractions if I move around too much so DH has been on me to stay put. He wants this baby to go as close to his due date as possible. I'm nesting a lot and have this sense that he may be coming soon. I hope he holds off until at least 37 weeks.

Nickysy: Yes, you said what I was thinking earlier. Knowing if it’s even possible to get pregnant. All the trying and waiting and hoping. You have a bean in there chugging along. A great accomplishment. I’m happy you feel this and I’m know the baby feels your joy at their presence.

Danaa: I feel a true ovulation going on now. Hubby wants to do an insemination as soon as he gets home.

Andia: Thank you. It goes by fast. 37wks will be good to make it to. So happy for this moment to be fast approaching for you. Hugs

Nicky those betas sound good to me. In the very early days it only doubles every 48-72 hours so that would be about right with your numbers? I am holding out hope for a nice sticky bean for you lady! Crossing everything.

Sorry eoe, I haven't had a chance to read anything else I just came for an update on Nicky, will get back on in the next couple of days for full personals!!

Hello lovely ladies. Courtney hope you and your family are doing well. Danaa can't wait for your scan... your beta numbers were great. Faith catch that egg. Nickysy got even my eyes crossed that your numbers start doubling faster. Sending mucho sticky vibes. I think you just implanted late. Loz 25 weeks yay. Andia fx that you keep your little one in there for two more weeks at least. Whoz, Star and Fly thinking of you ladies. I hope I've got you all. Afm Af got me after a 30 day cycle which I'm happier with than a 22 day cycle. My lp was longer which is helpful for implantation. Hopeful that my cycle stays lengthened to at least 26 to 30 days. Working 6 days again this week. Hope I go back down to 5 really soon. Watched some of the Blue Angels' air show from the store today though. We were soooooo busy bc of the air show lol. They love my dh coming in to talk to everyone. He's the one who talked me up to them before I even applied. He came and brought me some food and watched with us. Such a sweet heart he has. That's all for me except sticky vibes, baby dust, and hugs to us all.

Hi everyone..

Thank you so much for all your wishes and concern. I am hanging by thread here. My next beta will only be on Monday-23rd. Till then I have to just take meds and hope for best. My doc did talk to me today, and told me to basically hold out hope, but realistically, be cautious. As she thinks I am having a chemical pregnancy. It sucks. And i cried and cried a lot today. After a long time, you get those pink lines, only to know, that they might not last. One of those days where I felt hopeless. Sometimes i think i am tired of everyone telling me that I am strong. I don't want to be this strong. I wanna be vulnerable and normal and get my baby. To top it off, my parents came to visit, and entered in the house just 5 min after I spoke to doc. And I hugged my mum and cried again. Ofcourse now she knows all the details. I have been feeling sad for them as well. I really want to, but am not even able to enjoy the moment of thinking that I am pregnant, just because of this limbo. Phew! DH also broke down yesterday. He really wants a little girl and has so many plans for her. I felt helpless looking at him. But i guess he really needed to come out with his emotions too. Sometimes, I forget, how much is all of this affecting him as well.

Mk: Sorry AF showed but a longer LP is very good. And youR DH sounds like a sweetheart indeed.

Nickysy:I'm happy your parents were there to comfort you. It's hard trying to hold it all together when you really want to fall apart.Your husband's opening up to you is very therapeutic. You both have been through so much. I'm praying Monday's beta is much higher and soon we can see baby on a scan. It is a miracle for anyone to be pregnant and give birth. No one realizes it until we are met with infertility. So much has to happen just right for us to grow our lil beans...Hope is the food that feeds miracles. Let's hold on to it with two hands. HUGS
