Mrs. Hope, congrats on a strong heart beat!!!! Fantastic news.

Nebraska, I've heard that sometimes the HCG gets so high that the home tests can't register it anymore. Could be the case here? Your last beta was such a strong doubling time, I absolutely refuse to give up hope. I'll be pulling for fabulous results on Monday!

Had my WTF appointment today and my RE was like, "I'm angry. That should have worked!" It made me laugh. Anyway, since it was a strong embryo and it had cleared genetic testing, he's recommending an Endometrial Receptivity Array to make sure my uterus lining was ready when it was supposed to be. So basically, this month we're going to prep like we would for a FET - 10 days of estrogen, then adding progesterone for 5 days - but instead of the transfer, he'll biopsy a piece of the lining and test it to see if it is pre-receptive, receptive, or post-receptive, then moving forward with the FET he'll tweak my number of days on progesterone accordingly. I'm like, "Whatever you think will help! I'm onboard!"

Nebraska- I would definitely wait ...there is always hope!!!

Mrs. Hope- Congratulations on the beautiful baby with an awesome heartbeat and also on no more injections because those can be brutal!

AFM- My beta test is Thursday morning and my husband and I both work :( I don't want to get bad news over the phone and be alone is my sorrow or ( fingers crossed) get good news and say it over the phone or wait all day until 6 to celebrate. So we have an idea we are going to buy a home pregnancy test Wednesday night and when I wake up on Thursday do the HPT. That way we will know while we are together. I am still nervous about that because I could be setting myself up to go to work in a million pieces...but I just need to keep thinking positively.

Readyfor #2: Sounds like you and your husband have made a good plan together for results day. I hope you wake up that day to a lovely BFP.

Zerbinetta: Your doc sounds like a great person. Glad he's helping you through this and given you a game plan to go from here.

Mrs Hope: Congrats on a great ultrasound! So glad you could see the little heart beat.

AFM: I'm still not feeling great about things, but I talked to a nurse at length today. She said basically that I can't trust my home tests at this point and shouldn't be taking them (I know...). We talked about doing another blood test, but I was working, and it would be a long drive to another town to do it. So she suggested to just take it easy over the weekend and see what happens. I've had some significant cramps, but it could be due in part to bawling my eyes out yesterday. No bleeding has happened, which I did not realize can still happen anytime, even with PIO. Anyway, we'll just see I guess. I'd love to just be paranoid and wrong, but I'm bracing for the worst.

Hi ladies,

zerbenetta Congrats to your hubby on the new job! Glad that your still moving forward and trying to find answers.

Nebraska- I know its hard to stay positive when things look bleak but I'm praying that everything is ok with your Bub.

Readyfor2- Thursday can't come soon enough. I'm losing my mind over here.

aFM. I really wish I hadn't bought these hpt. I have been so depressed the last few days over the negatives. I guess it just brings back the years of trying and only getting negatives. I do logically know that it was too soon for a bfp. BUT this morning which is 5dp5dt I got the faintest of lines that even hubs saw. These test have consumed me and even though yesterday was my 5 year wedding anniversary I could hardly concentrate. My husband really wanted me to drink a glass of wine to relax (but I didn't). Can't wait until Thursday!!!!!

Nebraska, how did the ultra sound go??????

Readyfor2 - how are you holding up?

Faith, are you still POASing? Remember, those things can be wildly inaccurate. I hope you were able to enjoy at least some of your anniversary!

Not good news today. Miscarriage was confirmed. :'( Truly sucks. I'm not ok right now, but I will be. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers and trying to keep me positive. I wish everyone the best in their journeys.

Nebraska - so sorry to hear that honey, that really sucks.... :hugs: Good luck for the rest of your journey, you will get there x

Zerbinetta - your RE sounds really on to it... I think in IVF it is really easy to get caught up in the whole stims/ egg retrieval/ embryo part of it but the environment the embryo's going into is just as important.

Faith - how are you doing? A faint line sounds promising!

Readyfor#2 - hope you're holding up ok! The TWW is the worst!

Mrs Hope - yay for a HB... that is just the best sound in the world right? Strange that your betas were so high, maybe you just have a really healthy baby in there!

AFM - I wasn't able to have my U/S with my SIL yesterday as she had a bunch of last minute meetings she had to go to! So we might do it a bit later in the week or I may just just hold out until next Monday when I have my official U/S with my clinic and DH can come. Still not feeling much except for super tired... I keep also having dreams that I forget I am pregnant and have a few wines and then suddenly remember and freak out.

Nebraska I am so sorry for your loss :( you take as much as time as you need before you take the next step...

Faith - Happy Anniversary!!! Yeah I still have not bought a HPT because I know I will want to use in the morning.

Zerbinettes- Thanks for asking...it is very difficult to wait and even keeping my mind occupied is not helping. :/

Isaac's mum- Have you had your ultrasound? Hopefully you will get to have it soon because waiting sucks.

AFM- I am going out of mind waiting for Thursday..I am not even sure I want to buy the HTP anymore I am just too chicken...I want to wait to be over but at the same time I love the HOPE being alive and taking a test could be the end...or the beginning I guess. Also, all this extra thinking has me with heartburn most of the day. :(

Okay ladies I have decided to be brave. I bought the HPT and will be using it tomorrow morning. I wasn't sure what to do and had already decided to just wait for the blood test, but then my husband make a good point. He said that the results are not going to change between me doing the HPT at 6:45 am and the blood test at 8:30 am, he said what's done is done :/ I HOPE for the best!!!
