Wram-- I'm relieved to hear that you have been having mild and few symptoms too. Gives me hope that things may be going in the right direction!

Mama-- My husband very strongly wants to wait until the beta, which is scheduled for 2/13 at 10AM. I wanted to test this morning, but he was pretty adamantly against it. He's leaving this afternoon for five days, so it looks like the earliest we'd be able to test would be next Wednesday. I'm a little frustrated, though I understand his reasoning-- he didn't want me to be upset and then have him have to leave, and he didn't want to be upset and have it spoil his trip. I'm pretty sure I would have been just fine-- 6dp5dt is still quite early, and if it were a negative today, I'd have still thought that there was a solid chance it would be positive later. C'est la vie.

My mom gets to learn how to give PIO injections tonight. This should be interesting!

It is officially, official! Got my blood back, 148! Could not believe it was so high. I don't have to do another blood test. I have to make an appointment but US should be Friday or Monday. :beta:

I'm getting so anxious to hear you ladies BFP!! :sticky:

Mamabear- what day do you hear back about your testing?

Evergreen- how are you holding up? Any symptoms? I still haven't gotten anything besides boobs and cramps. Any more dizzy spells?

Waiting- any news?? How are your symptoms?

:wait: :praying:

Wram-- I'm holding up okay. I did have another little dizzy spell earlier today, but it wasn't as severe as last time. I've been having symptoms, but they are mostly things that could be caused by the progesterone and estrogen I'm taking-- a metallic taste in my mouth, food tasting "off" (my creamsicle candies taste like sour patch kids, dark chocolate tastes super bitter, and avocados seem to have lost their taste entirely-- it is kind of delightfully weird to eat something and have no idea what it is going to taste like), lots of little cramps in my uterus and near my ovaries that feel nothing like AF cramps, hunger, and some pretty wild mood swings. It is all enough to make me hopeful, but nothing that could definitely be attributed to anything more than the PIO and the Estrace.

My mom is being a real champ for the PIO injections. I've been joking that if this all works and the kid one day asks how babies are made, we'll be sure to include the part about grandma giving mom shots in the butt.

Congrats Wram!

I've been awful at checking in - I used to do it constantly!

Had my retrieval on Friday and they retrieved 20 eggs. 11 Matured on Saturday and 9 fertilized. I'm waiting on a callback today regarding my scheduled egg transfer on Wednesday. I'm getting so excited I could care less about getting stabbed in the tuckus with PIO on the daily ;)

Mamabear- I would be losing my mind too! At least I could cheat and take a test. You just have to wait. :omg:

Mtns- Congratulations on those great numbers!!! Let us know your transfer goes. Good luck!

Anyone else broken down and tested???

I'm still holding out until my husband gets home... Maybe even until the beta on 2/13. I haven't decided yet. Our RE strongly recommended waiting until the beta, and my husband seems to agree with him, but it is really freaking hard to wait so long.

Evergreen- it seems ridiculously long. You were only 3 days after me and I already went for blood. It will be worth the wait!
