No intimacy in this household either. My husband has been interested but since I'm still doing crinone and one of my pills vaginally, he has chosen to pass. Plus he doesn't want to cause any problems in that area.

I have no desire either. No offense to my husband but with all the meds, inserting anything else up there sounds so uncomfortable.

Threedogs I hope your beta went well today! Looking forward to hearing your results.

Hi ladies,
I see I'm a bit late to be joining this thread!
And it's been a couple of years since I was last on here, back then I was on every day for months!
Last Halloween my amazing daughter, Betty Valentina was born after 1 successful IVF cycle (and 6 failed IUIs). We ended up with no frozen embies so have just finished a fresh IVF cycle.
I had 18 eggs collected on Monday and of 15 fertilised I was left with 5 looking good yesterday and another 5 or so looking a but below average and a few looking like duds!
This morning I had 1 x 4AA (australian grading) put back and will call tomorrow to find out if we get any frozen. My daughter was a 4BB so I'm keeping optimistic. Also have an amazing Doctor, one of the leading ones here who has me on lots of different Meds now, including Valium and a shot of brandy today!
So keeping my fingers crossed now as I start the dreaded 2WW. Last time I tested pos on 5dp5dt but am worried about getting a false positive this time because if the HCG injections this Dr has me on from tonight. Might try hold out for the blood test in 2 weeks.
So although I'm meant to be sleeping due to the valium!
I'll start scrolling through your stories now.
Wishing everyone the absolute best luck with their cycles and on their 2WW!

@threedogs- thats really awesome news! woohoo!
@puppymom- yes, poas this morning and again, same little line.. i tested again just now and same little line. its faint but that sucker is there:) I'm totally apprehensive about this as we have had many false hopes before (i'm sure everyone has here) so I am trying to keep my head in reality. I wish the line was darker but its pretty faint.. I'll take it! now, I'm 9dp3dt.. should be darker now? more waiting I s'pose ;)

Countmein, it may just be the sensitivity levels of the cheapies and them taking longer to show up. Hopefully they start to darken up for you.

Threedogs, yay for your results! Our second betas are both on Monday! Oh boy!!

So. I just found out that my ex and his wife are pregnant. I have a 7 yr old with my ex. He left me when I was 5 months pregnant, gambled away all our money and cheated on me with at least 8 ppl. Sorry that's probably too much info but I'm pretty gutted tonight as my husband and I have tried for over 3 years only to have one mc last year. :(

(Sigh) it feels like an emotional punch in the stomach...

Tess, I can't imagine how much that hurts. He definitely does not seem like he deserves such a blessing, especially after he lost out on the opportunity to be a good father to your first child. But keep focusing on your goals and building your family. Don't give him the power to hurt you more. Concentrate on how wonderful it will be when you and your husband get your rainbow baby. Nothing else will matter.

Hope you're feeling better today.

Thanks @puppymom! You're right I need to stop giving him the power to make me so unhappy. I'll be fine. Hopefully this in a month we'll know if we have our rainbow baby.

Ladies, I've been offline for that last several weeks...massive morning (all day) sickness, busy at work and a lot of traveling, but I had to sneak back in and see if there was any exciting news from the Aug/Sept thread that ran over to this one. How exciting!

@ puppymon, 3dogs and Jean :happyforyou: :bfp:. I'm so happy for you both; it's such great news.

@ being an adult :hugs: . I'm so sorry for your 2nd loss. We had 2 successive failures (both fresh), albeit 18 months apart, because that's how long it took us to recoupe funds to pay for more tries, but It's still devastating. The 2nd BFN, for us was easier too, I suppose expectations were lower, but it's still stressful and sad. Big hugs to you and your DH.

@morph: sorry this cycle is so long. Please hang in there, you and being an adult can have festive holidays and then happy successes in 2016!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Hi everyone - I know we disappeared for a while.... TWW can be tough, yes, and I got sick - both the Friday after my Monday transfer (must have been implantation!!), and then Sunday with a cold.
Timeline:
11/6 retrieval
11/9 - 1 embryo transfer
11/16 - POAS - POSITIVE
11/17-20 - POAS 9 times - all POSITIVE, including a FRER on 11/20, PM, that came up 2-3 weeks.
11/21 BETA - 177. She said that was excellent. Continuing endometrin
HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
We told my Mom Saturday afternoon and then spent some time at Target playing with the registry list. We have told no other person (just you guys now, and a few followers on Twitter know via message). Trying to avoid the topic at least until Thanksgiving.
But like us all, I'm still in shock and have many 'what-ifs' going through my head. We have our 2nd beta on Tuesday morning.
Is this for real!?

Yes, I think we have a baby in here:) Yesterday, took a clear blue digi and popped up 'preggers'! I have not had any symptoms (mild cramps) which I understand it is probably too soon (10dp3dt) but I'd just like to feel a little something for reassurance. We do a beta on tuesday! I am so very grateful. Hopefully this long journey of ttc is finally done bulldozing thru our lives and wallet.
wishing all the very best !

CONGRATS @emily and @countmein! So exciting! To quote the A-team, "I love it when a plan comes together" (anyone remember that show??)

Anyway, had u/s this morning and we only saw ONE gestational sac (and yolk)! I'm kinda surprised. I really thought there would be two. Intuition I guess plus my betas were nuts. It was a Dr (not mine) not a technician who did the scan and he was SUPER fast. Like 1 minute from start to finish. He said sometimes another sac will show up later it it's a late implanter, but at this point it looks like just one!

I may post my u/s pic later - I feel like it looks like something else is on there - want to know if anyone sees something too....

Happy Monday!
