Faith- that is great news. Friday will be even better!!

Nicole- that is a great story! Lmao. You can't make this s**t up. You should have taken a picture of that nurse's face.

Thank you all for your kind words! I think my DH was more disappointed. I figured it would take longer to heal. It is all part of the craziness that is infertility. Yeeehaw! Lol

@SA - that is so sweet! Love that! And what a great song. Hopefully those embies will get to hear great music for years to come :). I've been amazed how clear God has made this path for us this time around. 8 years ago, the path was clear that adoption was the road we were to walk down. Now He has us doing this and it has been easy sailing so far and I've had such a peace about this whole process. He sure takes care of us! Praying your embies are super sticky!

What an amazing story you have BG.
Hurrayyyy for weekend. Ladies I'm going crazy analyzing every tiny symptom even though I know it is still too early to tell.
Anyway DH and I are going away for the weekend so I'm excited to have something else to think about.
I guess I can test next week sometime right? How many dpt do you all recommend? I'm so nervous!

Update:

Hi ladies, I got my 2nd beta results at 15dpo it is 96! My nurse seemed happy about the results, she said it more than doubled and that’s all that matters. She made sure to tell me not to compare myself to anyone, she said I’m at the average for 15dpo but of course there will be women at much higher numbers if I searched for them. She didn’t schedule me for a 3rd beta, she said to go ahead and schedule my 1st OB ultrasound for the week for the 23rd but I decided to wait till the following week, I don’t need the added stress. At 6 wks its possible to hear the heartbeat but not always but at 7wks it should definitely be heard and I rather wait to hear it. I’m sooooo happy but I’ve also been here before in May when I mc, getting passed that 1st ultrasound will definitely put some ease in my heart.

Praying you all get your bfp’s soon and that your beta’s are nice and high so you don’t have to stress lol.

Btw, I still see some tinge of color when I wipe but It never goes onto my panty liner. The nurse said that’s also normal for women that go through ivf cause the endometrium suppositories tend to irritate the already engorged cervix. As long as the bleeding is not from the uterus where my lil bean is growing then we’re good but there’s no way of knowing that :? . As of today, I’m still PREGNANT and I’m gonna relish in that every day until someone tells me otherwise! Sorry for the long post but I figured it might help someone that needed some comfort and was going through the same things I am after getting their bfp!

It's been pretty quite in here...

@bg how are you doing? what did your beta look like today?

@SA how are you holding up? I had a 3dt transfer and my first super super squinter was on 8dp3dt so 11dpo. Cant wait to hear ur results soon

Afm, I got my 3rd beta done today and it was 349 @ 18dpo. My 1st Ultrasound is Dec 1st, woohooo... Oh and the spotting ended early Friday afternoon, guess it was late implantation bleeding. Thank god for that... Have a great week ladies...

Hey all

This waiting is driving me crazy. Tomorrow will be 8dp3dt for me but I'm too nervous to test so early. I am thinking of waiting until Thursday so that I can be sure that the result is what the test says.

Glad things are going so well for you faith.
@Nicole how are things with you?

The trigger shot didn't work, I didn't ovulate. ugh, I don't even want to talk about it. I will update you guys on Friday when I figure out what the hell I am doing.

@faith- I am so genuinely happy for you!

@SA- you are almost there! I was too scared to test at all during my 2ww. I didn't even want to answer the phone when they called me with my beta results. I was so scared of a BFN that I would rather had not known at all (what you don't know won't hurt you kind of thinking I guess) LOL. Good luck :)

@SA I think Thursday is a good idea. I know the waiting is torture but knowing you’re getting the best results by taking it later is probably the best call. Have you had any symptoms? Praying you get ur sticky bean.

@nicole No fricken way! I’m sooooooo sorry, I totally get not wanting to talk about it. This whole process can be so crappy, it’s a fricken roller coaster of emotions, high and lows in a matter of seconds. I’m wishing you all the best, hoping you get some better news on Friday. Oh and I totally let all my beta results go to vm cause I couldn’t deal with a nurse possibly feeling sorry for me. I know it sounds dumb but I was sooo scared. Thanks again for the good vibes, I really appreciate it.

@laney I know you’re not in here much but how you holding up? I’m sure you’ve had ur 1st ultrasound by now. How did it go?

@jean From what I remember your 1st ultrasound should be this week, right? You must be sooo excited, make sure to tell us how it goes.

AFM, I’m doing pretty good, trying to get my mind in a good place so I can enjoy this time without feeling so scared. I swear, it goes from one tww to another. I am super grateful don’t get me wrong but the fear is never ending. I just want us all to be genuinely happy, to finally get that one piece to our puzzle that we’ve been striving for. Everyone’s journey is different but I can honestly say I don’t think I would’ve been able to get through these past 17 months of ttc without this site. I’m praying we get more bfp’s in here and for the ladies that need to wait till December, keep this thread going, I’d love to see you get your bfp’s soon because they WILL come.

@SA - I'll be pulling for you on Thursday!
@Nicole - That is so insanely frustrating. I'm sorry.
@Wram - I know how devastated I was by the delay when I had cysts. This entire process just takes way too long as it is, but don't let the delay bring down your morale. I hope your DH is staying strong too.

@Faith - thanks for checking in and a HUGE congrats to you! Lots of BFPvibes on this thread and I love it! How are you feeling!?! I know exactly what you're going through with the spotting. It's stressful. Mine hasn't been regular, which is even scarier - I had one instance a few weeks ago that I believe I already mentioned, and then Wednesday last week I woke up and went to pee and there was blood. Not like a little on a tissue. Bright red, and a LOT. I panicked. Big time. But it stopped within 5 minutes... and then I went to the doctor on Thursday and everything was completely normal. So I had a heart attack for no reason.

I'm 9 weeks and 2 days at this point. Still haven't told my family. We're holding out to tell everyone at Thanksgiving since my in-laws come to our house and we'll all be together. But man... time is moving slowly. I'm so sick of keeping it bottled up! Although my cousin, who is one of my best friends, told me on Saturday she's pregnant so I had to spill. Our due dates are less than 3 weeks apart, which is amazing since my sisters are no where near having kids (one is still in college). That's pretty much all that's going on with me. Other than that one scare everything has been smooth. My RE has us going in for an ultrasound every single Thursday (which is kind of cool - I have pictures from every week!). Last week I officially "graduated" and will be seeing my OB for the first time on Monday. And last night was my last progesterone shot! WOO-HOO!!!! And, other than sheer exhaustion, my symptoms have been manageable. Definitely food aversions (smells are driving me nuts), and all I want to eat is fruit (I've gone through no less than 10 containers of raspberries in the past 2 weeks), but no real morning sickness. I'm hoping for smooth sailing for you and BG too! And can't wait to see the next round of BFPs!

Sorry I haven't been around much, just did my beta test this morning. They just called! I'm 13dp5dt and my hcg is 2,221! Doesn't that seem high?? I'm thinking maybe both embies made themselves at home?? What do you think?

I'll try to catch up with y'all's posts later on!

@bg holy crap, that’s amazing!!! I bet you do have two lil beans in there… Yay!!!!

@laney I’m so excited to hear you graduated from your RE. It must be an amazing feeling! Glad the bleeding wasn’t anything serious, even though I’m sure it scared the crap out of you, sometimes women need to hear these kinda stories so they know things can still turn out okay. You must be so excited to be pregnant at the same time as your cousin, I’m actually in the same boat but it’s my sister. We’re literally two weeks apart but noone knows about me being preggo’s yet. I’m being very cautious until my 1st ultrasound and she announced it the moment she found out so I want to give her the spotlight for a little longer lol. My moms gonna be one busy grandma!!!

How exciting Faith and Laney to have someone who you are pregnant with!

@Nicole that sucks sucks sucks. Hopefully you find out what is going on so that you can move on. We are here to support you and walk with you until you too have your good news. I was so frustrated starting my process a week late and here you are many weeks later. Hang in there!

@bg we can't wait to hear your news! Bring on Monday.

AFM I am so so so stressed about testing tomorrow, I am driving myself crazy. I wish I had just tested this morning.Faith you asked if I have any symptoms and of course I have loads but they could also all be the hormones and in two years of trying I think I have had pretty much all these symptoms before. He he. Tomorrow is 6 years since my hubby and I met. He is away for work but will be back tomorrow night and I so want to surprise him with good news. On the other hand if the news isn't good I will have the day to deal with it. I don't know how you ladies managed to go through all of this a second time. It is really tough. Up and down and up and down. I was trying not to get my hopes up with this cycle but now that I have no frozen embies, I know what lies ahead if this isn't it and I am really hoping to be spared all that.
So think of me tomorrow and send some prayers my way!

@jean it is pretty awesome that my sister and I are preggo’s together, we both had losses this year. She had one in early January and I had one in June. So, it would be amazing if these were our rainbow babies. She doesn’t have any fertility issues, once she was mentally prepared to start again in August, bam she got pregnant 3 months later! I’m sooo excited for her and I truly hope this works for the both of us.. Btw, she’s due on June 8th and I would be due June 21st, crazy right…


@Bg no more betas for me, I kinda just decided to go on Monday on my own cause my nurse had said the first two betas doubled nicely. Yeah well, I wasn’t satisfied with that answer lol. So I took it into my own hands and just showed up and got my blood drawn. I know my beta’s are on the lower side but I’m just praying my lil bean implanted late and that’s why they’re a little behind. I bet tomorrow you’ll be somewhere in the 4,000, cant wait to see what your ultrasound looks like.


@SA I totally understand in regards to the symptoms. I always thought for sure its gonna work this time and bamn BFN and then when I least expected it, it worked! I’m praying that you get your bfp on ur 1st try and you’re able to surprise ur hubby. I’ve done 3 IUI’s and now 2 ivf’s so I’m really praying this is my take home baby.

Afm, nothing new… Boobies are starting to hurt more and more and I get a few backaches and cramps here and there but nothing too crazy. I’m praying with all my heart that I’m one of those girls that are low beta risers and everything ends up fine. At the end of the day, I can’t do anything about it at this point. I’ve done my part and I just need my body to do the rest. I talk to the lil bean daily (probably a million times a day) and I pray constantly. I know I cant let the devil win and I wont! My faith in god will make sure my sweet lil bean is growing strong and healthy, I have to believe that!
