Katie glad to hear the 2 are doing well. I can't believe you are 12weeks...

An0 sorry to hear about the sch - hopefully it clears up quick.

Ok so I was testing all week on cheap internet tests and noticed line getting darker. My last hcg trigger was Friday 1st the July. My otd is this Monday. I have 2 tests from clinic so I used one on Tuesday and got a faint line barely there (it is a 20iu test) I did the second test this morning and the same test had a blazing positive. So I took a digi and got 2-3 weeks pregnant. Omg do you think this is real? I had strong cramping the last few days so thought something was happening. I am 2 days away from otd. But I think if it was still trigger from over a week ago it wouldn't be enough to show 2-3 weeks on a digi? I then did a frer and the test line is darker than the control...could this really be it girls or am I testing too soon? :omg: :omg: :shock:

Sept- :congrats: :happyforyou: that is a definite BFP!!!!!! I'm so excited and happy for you!! How many did you put back?

AFM- officially hit 11 weeks today! DH had a family get together yesterday since a lot of people were out of town on the 4th and we told them our news. It's so nice to actually tell people so they can be excited with us! I think I'm still going to wait a little before I say anything to everyone I work with though (some do know but only because I may need them to cover shifts or lift things for me plus I was stuck on bedrest) however the majority doesn't. Maybe the 14 week mark? Or when I can't hide it anymore... when are you ladies going to share the news with your co-workers?

Thanks girls. I just put one back as was PGS tested. I have one more normal pgs tested embryo on ice.

I will have a blood test tomor/tues and maybe try another digi in a day or so hoping for 3weeks+

It hasn't sunk in. Deep down I am so proud of our embie for sticking it out but I don't want to get attached yet. Not sure if that makes sense.

Sept it totally makes sense. I'm trying not to get too attached yet and I'm 7.5 weeks...I have another scan tomorrow and I'm incredibly nervous. Odds are that things will work out though!

Katie- 11 weeks wow, that's great you started to tell people, I bet it feels so real now!

Sorry I've been MIA but still was checking in on you all. So excited to hear all the wonderful great news!

Sept, so happy for you and your BFP! It is so hard to not get attached but you can be joyful in what you DO have everyday. Don't let the worry overcome the positive. We've all been through it and Its so hard!

An, so glad to hear you are almost 8 weeks! This is very exciting and keep the faith!

Katie, yay! You got to finally tell the family! Must have been amazing! I can't wait to tell all after 12 weeks!

I hope we can all stay in touch as things progress. Are you planning on staying on this site or is there another we can all keep in touch? What are your thoughts? I would hate to just say goodbye as we've been through so much together. I will be 11 weeks Thursday and had my last scan at my clinic Friday and all is well and the baby was waving!!! So cute! Have a great day gals!

Thanks girls. I am sure we can Keep in touch here or some people open a private facebook group. I am in one from my ttc girls from a year or so back but I don't post much as I don't trust Facebook and I don't have children yet to post up updates on.
Have my blood test for betas tomorrow. I did a digitest yesterday again and still 2-3 weeks pregnant. I am 5 weeks at moment. Do you think a digi should be showing 3 weeks now?

Sept, I heard that most people don't get 3+ until 5.5 or 6 weeks- especially since you have a singleton I wouldn't be worried. When's your beta?

Believe- glad things are going well! It would be nice to stay in touch.

Oh that's good to know An0 I am only 5 weeks at the mo. I got my betas. The test was yesterday morning and I hated being back in that surgery with all the bad memories and beta hell before the ectopic. But I took a deep breath and tried to concentrate on the blood test. Results came back today and they were 3450! I will get a second draw to check they are doubling. Well that was the plan for tomorrow but nurse is booked up and I can't get appt until Monday. Won't get the 2-3 days to compare but never mind. I get a scan Monday week.

Tried to get another beta 2 days later but nurse fully booked ffs. So next blood draw is Monday at least it will show if numbers are going up even though the doubling won't be accurate. I have a scan on 25th July. How are you?

Best wishes for transfer praying mrs. I would advise to try and relax. I know easier said than done but take some deep breaths and try to hand over any anxiety or nerves to the doctors. Think that you have done everything possible. Time for you to relax breathe and let the experts do their job. I would recommend light walking in the days after, not strenuous exercise but gentle walking is good. Eat drink well and keep the feet warm :)

Good luck PrayingMrs!!! The best advice is to keep your body/feet warm and eat warm foods that day. My acupuncturist had me take bromelain capsules (the core of a pinneapple) to help with implantation. I also had acupuncture right after my procedure. I would definitely take it easy and put your feet up. Let your hubby baby you! Very excited for you and please keep us posted!

Had my first OB appt. at 11w 2days on Friday and it was a total buzz kill! Office staff was not warm and fuzzy and they screwed up my orders for my bloodwork including my harmony test. I have to go back tomorrow for more early pregnancy bloodwork cause they messed up! Not a great first experience but I will give them a second chance. My first pregnancy exam with a doctor is July 25th!
