Great news ladies! Yes I have my bfp! Finally! Hurrayyyyyyyy!
The line is faint but it is definitely there. I'm so so excited! I prayed before I took the test and just asked God for strength and then I sat there and watched the line appear. Yayyyyy. I have been thanking God and staring at that line all day! This is definitely the chat to be on. Thanks for everyone's support. I can still hardly believe it! Happiest of happy days.

The lucky thread gets a little bit luckier- we saw a heartbeat this morning! We have one in there!

I am 6w3d. I was SO relieved when they put in the wand and found the baby immediately (although it doesn't look much like a baby yet of course). Then the Dr saw the heartbeat and was like 'let's see if we can hear it,' and we all could! That's when I lost it.... Make up destroyed by 8am. HB was 122 and everything is measuring correctly.

Next appt two weeks from now, so 8w3d. Praying this is finally our miracle :-)
2013: off BC - not trying, not preventing

2015: 1st IUI- femara- BFN
2nd IUI- femara - BFN
3rd IUI- femara- BFN

5th IUI - femara, gonal f, ovidrel, progesterone - BFN
6th IUI - femara, gonal f ( increased) ovidrel, progesterone- BFN
IVF #1 - BFP m/c early ~4.5 weeks
IVF #2 - BFP! Beta #1 - 790!
First ultrasound 6w3d - 1 baby :-) heartbeat 122
Second ultrasound 8w3d on 12/3/15 heartbeat 182
Graduated from fertility doctor!
First OBGYN appt. went well! We have a very active, jumping bean! :-)
Next appt. at 14 weeks.

Omg, I have to mention this. Has anyone had real visual dreams about sex! Lol I mean, it’s been a while for me with starting our ivf mid October and then thankfully conceiving, I don’t feel comfortable doing ANYTHING. I think my brain is totally missing it bahahahaha. Funny how the more in depth we get with ttc the less sex actually happens. I just thought I would share… Oh and I’m taking the endometrium suppositories so, it would just be yucky if we even tried :rofl:

@SA - Sooo awesome!!! I just knew it! This is a lucky thread, I think :) Praying the lines keep getting darker. Did you text again this morning?

@Jean Yay for great news and a healthy bean! We haven't been able to BD for awhile either, Dr wouldn't allow it. Hopefully after the u/s. Have to say, I'm not hating the break though (shhh)

Had blood test today and they confirmed it. Going again next Friday. This is so exciting!
Wow Jean that you could hear the heartbeat already! Wow! Wow! Wow!

@ Faith Our Dr hasn't said anything about not BDing but I also haven't wanted to risk it. I'm taking suppositories until Monday anyway so that would just be weird.

@ Faith They didn't give me my beta, only confirmed that I am pregnant. I'm glad because I don't want to stress about those numbers, I would rather the clinic do that for me. I am only on hormones until Monday and then I stop completely. I guess on Friday they will check my progesterone and see if my body is producing what it needs.
I really feel peace about this pregnancy and DH says he does too so I don't want to stress myself out worrying about the what ifs.
It still doesn't feel real that I am finally pregnant. We told our immediate family who knew that we were doing IVF and that was fun. Everyone else will have to wait for the announcement.

@Nicole. I am thinking of you so much every time I'm on this site. I think we all know how much it sucks to have people around you getting good news and still to be waiting for yours. And to be in the position that you are where your body is on its own mission must be even more frustrating. BUT I want to say that you are a part of this lucky chat for a reason and not to give up hope. Your BFP day will come and we will all celebrate with you. Please keep us informed of the progress. Have you learnt anything further about why you haven't ovulated?

How is everyone else doing?

Anyway, had my u/s this morning and it looks like there is just one bean in there! I'm still kind of surprised
