Hi Ladies,

Congrats ssbarnes! Triplet's how amazing! I will keep you in my prayers!

KCgirl, congrats on your transfer, the time will fly through the wait! Prayers to your too!

Grace79, when is your FET? Very excited for you!

Well, ladies I have GREAT NEWS! I'M PREGNANT!!!!!! I have had two rounds of both bloodwork over the past three days and my numbers are rising! I am still in shock and we couldn't be happier as this was all so emotional but worth seeing the positive results. I just keep praying that all goes well and this little fighter continues to grow in me into a happy healthy little munchkin! The nurses were right, after all I went through it only takes ONE! I go for my ultrasound 10/23 so now it's just time to rest and take care of me. I'm hoping to continue more positive news on this thread and I may hop over to the Oct/Nov. thread to say hello. Best to you all and I will continue to check in!

I've heard of people getting BFPs as early as 5dp5dt but I'm trying to hold out. I will test on Saturday morning for sure, to prepare myself for the results of the beta.

Believe - Congrats! That's wonderful news.

Grace - It's like you have two 2 week waits. Countdown to transfer 13 and a wake up!

AFM - I was having a terrible craving for corn puffs last night. After an hour of debating with myself, I decided to go to the store and treat myself. I got up from my chair, put my shoes on and grabbed my purse. I went to leave, it felt like I was going to have a discharge from the Crinone so I went to the bathroom. Before I could get down the hall, I had blood everywhere. My foyer, hallway and bathroom looked like a scene from a horror movie. I called the doctor and sent a message for my husband to come home from work. The doctor called back in 15 minutes. By then the bleeding had slowed to a trickle. She said that I could go to the ER now or wait a couple hours to see if the bleeding stops. We went to the ER as soon as my husband got home.
I had to clean up the blood. I couldn't look at it or let my husband walk in the house to see that.
We prayed and prayed and prayed. The bleeding continued to trickle. It wasn't until my ultrasound (I couldn't see the screen) and my husband held up 2 fingers and mouthed, "I see two." until I started to relax. I continued to pray even harder.
We did see all three babies and all three had good measurements and heartbeats.
The radiologist's report indicated a chorionic hemorrhage (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chorionic_hematoma)
Scary, scary, scary! I do not recommend it.
The on call doctor called me back last night and this morning to check on me. She called my RE this morning to get me an appointment, but I already had one scheduled for today.
As terrifying as this ordeal was; I am glad to have an amazing support network.
Praying for everyone!

Hello ladies, I'm sorry for my absent. I had my beta last wk Tuesday and it went from 20 from the wk b4 to 5 this past wk. my doc wanted me to come back in on 10/13 but I refused the offer. I just can't take it. I told him that I'll schedule an appt for 10/20 instead to give me some time and my body some time. I'm just aggravated at this point with my numbers. I just stopped bleeding last wk as well. I'm just an emotional wreck. I'm upset about my weight and trying to find fast ways to lose it, I'm upset about my numbers S L O W L Y going down and I feel depressed as well. I want to start another FET cycle once I get in the negative so I'm praying when I go back on 10/20 things are where they need to be.

I have to catch up on you ladies post. TTYL and have a good Sunday!

Chnara - I totally get where you are coming from. My own journey has been such a roller coaster. I don't wish these ups and downs on anyone. Add in all of the hormones and it's the worst nightmare. :hugs: :hugs:

kcgirl - I have been on both sides of the POAS fence. Some cycles I was such a junkie, while other times I was afraid of it. This particular cycle, I had decided not to test. I wasn't going to be able to go to the clinic for my beta until 17dp3dt. Two days before my clinic appointment I found myself sitting on the kitchen floor crying because I didn't have enough aluminum foil. So I decided to test because that was so abnormal. It was positive, but I was still afraid to tell my husband because of previous disappointments.

AFM - I am trying to take it easy. I am working on building up freezer meals. I prep one dish and then rest and repeat. I have to find an OB. I fired my last one when I found my RE. So we are going to look at the 3 closest hospitals maternity wards and decide where we want to deliver. Then I'll have to find a doctor that has privileges there.

Ssbarnes - I can't imagine what you've been through. So happy to hear that you and the babies are all doing well.

Ch'nara - I'm so sorry you are going though this. I think it's very wise to take a bit of time to feel better emotionally and physically.

AFM - I did end up getting my BFP and yet I'm petrified to admit it. I feel like my betas have been on the low side (though within normal ranges) and I'm just so scared. Don't get me wrong, I am so, so grateful to have gotten to this point, however, I just can't seem to be able to relax a little. My first beta at 9dp5dt was 75 and today, at 11dp9dt it was 151. It barely doubled. I'm waiting for a call to schedule my first ultrasound between 10/27 and 10/30. I honestly feel like that is a lifetime away. Thank you everyone for all your support.

Congrats KCgirl, I know exactly how you feel. So happy but nervous to celebrate. We've all gone through so much and are so protective of ourselves and our emotions. Keep thinking positive! My first ultrasound is 10/23 as I leave for Mexico this week and I'm so nervous to be away during this precious first few weeks. Def going to be super careful with all I do, eat and drink. Keeping my fingers crossed for both of us.
C'Nara take special care of yourself and I send u prayers!

Sabarnes, OMGGGGG triplets....??? A M A Z A G I N G... 3 blessings, lots of love!! :happyforyou: :congrats: What you've been through had to have been hard. But I'm so happy to hear you and the babies are doing well. Stay well rested if you can, I'm not sure what type of job you have and/or do but take it easy, please!

kcgirl, :happyforyou: :hh9: I could only imagine how you're feeling about your beta numbers. My guessing is that your doc seems happy with the numbers otherwise he/she would have scheduled you for another one. I'll take that as a good sign, that all is well and when it's time for ultrasound you'll be more relaxed :wink:

grace, you're on count down and seems like forever right? You're on your way :). Soon I'll be on a calendar where I can start the countdown.

Believe, :hh9: :cong: :fingersx: Good news are pouring in.... When there's bad news, there's always good news around the corner. You been patient with this process to getting where you are today. I'm SOOOOOO HAPPPYYYYY for all of you ladies...

Jean, you're getting ready to start another round, was it a fresh round or a FET cycle? I hope AF comes soon for you, I'm looking to jump right in after everything checks out as well.

everything is coming along I see....


I hope I didn't miss anyone.

AFM, I have an appt on 10/20 for A N O T H E R R R R R R R R R beta and hopefully my last with disappointing news. Last wk Tuesday (10/13) my nurse called me (4:09pm) to ask me if I was coming in for my beta bcz I was on the appt book. I'm not sure why I was when I rescheduled my appt for the following Tuesday. She told me I was still in the books to come in for blood, I guess someone wasn't doing their job. She asked if I wanted to come in still and I told her no I'll see her next wk. So here I am in a couple of days I'll be back in the office to get blood checked again. What's weird is that AF came on Thursday (10/15), I wasn't expecting her and I thought I wasn't going to see her in about 3-4 wks from when I stopped bleeding. But I'm hoping to hear that my numbers dropped and below zero so I can move forward. :praying: :praying: :praying:

Have a good night ladies
