Yay Zerb!!! :congrats: I think the number is totally fine - that was a pretty early beta (you were only 8dp, right?) so it'll be much higher next time :D I have a random question - did they actually put your day 6 embryos in on the equivalent of 6dpo? We get our day 6's put in on day 5 still so I always call it a 5 day transfer. Anyway, so happy for you!!

Simone - What kind of hours do you work currently? Can you join the gym month to month or do you have to sign up for longer? I find spending money on things you can't really do anymore once pregnant and need to cancel, a recipe for success - eventually we were like 'lets just book all this s**t and spend all this money because then it'll probably work'. True that! Ha.

Twein - I am keen for a fb group as well. I've no suggestions for ideas but I like Simone's idea of something creative! Zerb, you're the writer, don't you have a fun name up your sleeve?! :)

Jersey - When is your first OB apointment? Did you choose a new one or use your current? I went with a recommendation from my RE.

Lady - I hope you're doing alright. When is your follow up appointment?

AFM - I had my 8 week ultrasound on Wednesday and graduated to the OB!!! Like whaaaaatttt?!! It was pretty surreal and I think I went to the appointment in denial thinking surely something would be wrong and they would have to keep me... There has been so many bumps, it is hard to believe it just ended so smoothly - my RE is like 'now this is normal to us, you are now behaving normally - everything you have done previously is not'. Ha. I am REALLY going to miss her but her OB recommendation is someone she knows well so that makes me happy!

Onto the important thing - the little babies! Oh my gosh, they grow so fast. It was really hard to get a shot of them together now they're so big, and they are starting to look like babies with their little limbs forming! They chill out exactly side by side so we don't really have a baby A & B yet (usually A is the one closer to the cervix) but I have named all my embryos so far, so they have their names - I just decided which was the frostie and which the fresh and went with it! No doubt I am wrong but I'm sure I'll start getting them mixed up soon anyway! :D The nicest thing, they had matching heartbeats of 163. So sweet!

Oh and Simone - I definitely have a little something extra but I doubt anyone but DH & myself would be able to see it! It probably just looks like I had a big feed except I am still quite unable to do that!! I also have to wear my jeans undone always :wink:

Kiwi, congratulations on graduating to the OB! That's so amazing. Sounds like the beans are developing perfectly.

Now that you mention it, my Day 6 embryos were put back on Day 5. Does that make my beta 8dp5dt? Will this make me feel better about my numbers? Will it stop my obsessive Googling? (answer: doubtful...) I have, however, refrained from peeing on a stick. I thought I'd wait until tomorrow, 48 hours from my beta, and try a Clearblue digital. They're only sensitive to like 50 miu, right? So if I get a positive, theoretically that means my beta is rising?

Simone, who is incredibly on top of things, has set us up with a Facebook group: Women in Waiting. I don't think we want to post the link here, so friend me on FB and I'll add you? Just remind me of your psuedonyms...

Yes I'm sure that makes your beta 8dp5dt because you were only 13dpo! Now give those embryos a chance ;) I'm super impressed you have refrained from peeing today! Did you yesterday? I think they advertise the clearblue as sensitive to 50 miu but who really knows with these sticks... I'm sure you would turn it positive though.

Oh, nice job Simone! Cool, I'll friend you now...

Kiwi congrats on graduating to OB status. That's a good thing. To answer your question I am seeing an OB group 2 female MD and midwife they were recommended by my RE. Met with the midwife to go over questions, history. She did Pelvic exam and I ask her to hear the HB as that was not part of the appt. she used a hand held Doppler and immediately she found it no fussing around. Nice and loud. Next app will be with Ob 11/30 and 12/1 I meet with the MFM people. No US since the last one at my RE 3+ weeks ago.

Simone that is nice you and DH exercising together you guys can push each other. You wanted to know if I was showing I am more bloated than anything else. My lower abd have a bulge. I have one jeans that is fitting me but may have to pack that up soon. I accepted your request.

Twein it is the weekend your US appt will be here before you know it. How are you?

Lady how are you doing?

Zerb are you done POAS? How are you feeling today any better? I tried finding your name on Facebook no luck.

Afm I am okay, exhausted for the most part. Biggest challenge right now is working night shift. Still no appetite or desire for food. I do get headache which is my body letting me know it is time to eat.so to prevent that I eat small meals: fruit every 4-5hrs. Other wise I am looking forward to Christmas as I love looking at the light. I am like a kid around this time of year.
I hope everyone is doing well. Be safe and have a great weekend.
