APRIL 2016 IVF BUDDIES? Anyone?

Postby new_ivf » Tue Apr 19, 2016 1:27 pm

Hi Everyone!

I'm looking for women that are at the dreaded 2 WEEK WAIT...I did my Transfer last Saturday, April 16th Trying to occupy my mind since my husband is away at a conference for a few days....

Feeling OK - been taking afternoon naps the last few days. The injections were no problem for me - the egg collection was a bit painful and I am finally over the worst of the terrible BLOATING AND Pinching feeling on my ovaries.

Trying to take walks during the day, and eat warm/nourishing foods like oatmeal, lentils, quinoa, and yes, PINEAPPLE core (might as well try it!)

Anyone out there??

Hi mybaby26,

Ahhh..yes I've been told everywhere NOT to test early at all because your body is still getting rid of the hormones in the drugs & the trigger shot. Also, the level of HCG hormone is often not even detectable in some until 12-14 dpo :-( I am sure I will cave and test on day 10-post transfer, but my official blood test is actually later that that!!

As far as symptoms -it's soooooooo hard to know what is causing them. I had so much bloating from the injections and after the egg collection I was really sore for 3 days. Then I read so many things on Google about side effects from the Crinone cream (can mock PMS symptoms or pregnancy symptoms) I really want some Coffee - but i don't want to screw anything up!!!!

I am trying to stay positive, but the truth is, I am age 40 - and even though I am healthy, and a good amount of eggs were collected - It could *still* not work! We are paying out of pocket, and most likely will only be able to afford the Frozen Embryo transfers with the few we have frozen (if they survive) and not sure we can afford an entirely new/fresh cycle.

At any rate, I am grateful we are in good health, but my age discourages me. Plus: MANY women (don't know the statistics) will experience at least 1 Miscarriage :-( I simply don't have much time and this makes me depressed.

Good luck & Baby dust to you!!!!!! Keep me posted how things are goind

I believe that you will be just fine!!!!
Keep the faith and dnt give up. I no its hard to stay positive all the time but at least no you did all you can and your clinic did all they can and all you can do is have faith and believe it will work.

Age is nothing.
I.am 27,
And i only had 5 eggs that were able to be collected. You had. Way more than me atleast you have alot frozen i only have one little.embie frozen out.of my lucky 5.

Your right it.is kinda hard trying to point out every pinch and. Feeling we have.
Most of them is.cost by the meda anyways.
But.actually i have been feeling.different lately hoping.this is a good sign over all.
I.will keep you.updated
Hope you get your BFP pretty Soon
Baby dust to.you.

When is your beta?
Am actually traveling. Home today after a along two.weeks in barbados for.treatment i must admit it.was nice. And.relaxing and.my.clinic was awsome

By Beta do u mean the first official blood pregnancy test? I'm not sure what all these different things mean yet ;-) I don't go back to the clinic until May 2nd for the blood test..they wanted to schedule the Friday before, but I will be gone on vacation.

I'm sure I will cave and do a home test on April 26th...

Oooh, Barbados! Does the clinic have a good reputation & statistics rates? How was the price? I've heard the IVF prices are much more affordable in Greece or Eastern Europe...don't know the success rates though.

No symptoms at all today....

So I'm on 5 days post 3-day Transfer.

I'm starting to feel anxious because the last 2 days I've felt absolutely NOTHING at all! The few days after transfer, I felt thirsty, frequent urination, tired (esp in afternoons, had naps) light headed, and some soreness and cramping twinges in ovaries (probably left over from egg collection/stimm meds) the bloat - it all went away.

Now I feel nothing! I'm a bit itchy down there from the Crinone I think - hopefully that goes away and I don't get a yeast inf :shock:

I hate this waiting....I need to get out and distract myself. I can't stop Googling symptoms etc. I keep thinking there is something else I can do to make it "stick" when I really need to chill and stop stressing.

I keep obsessing whether the symptoms I had earlier were from successful Implantation (which I think happens within 3-6 days Post 3-day transfer?)

OR....

if it's just my body recovering from all of the injections, and egg collection, Progesterone cream stuff???! No way to be sure I guess. All i can do it WAIT. :doh:

How are you feeling now?? Are you having a lot of spotting/cramping (like period cramps or are they more Ovarian "pinches"??)

To be completely real eithe you.
Try not to stress to much over it.i do it to and i often need a reminder that we have to stay positive and believe that are lil ones have implanted .
Dnt over work your mind .Google is good am addicted to it lol.
But try reading success stories that keeps me very happy and i watch success stories on utub also.
So its good to keep your mind in a positive state.

Am praying for your bfp .

Assuming Negative since only 1 line???? All the HPTs are different it seems.

Today it's 6 days post 3-day Transfer for me....

I feel nothing still. Biggest horror today was investigating "down there" because my itching was becoming intolerable - like I have a yeast or bacterial infection. :help:

TMI (sorry all) but there were huge blobs/chunks of old Crinone gel all impacted in there (like cottage cheese) I Googled (of course) and found that many people have this issue with the cream build-up that causes irritation (including some people that have gone to the ER!) I literally scooped out about 1/2 A CUP of dried Crinone chunks today! Disgusting!!!!!!!! I don't know how any dose could possibly absorb with all the crap stuck in there! It was like a CUP of mushy oatmeal all up in there. bleeeeeeehhhhhhh.

Needless to say, after some TLC, a tiny bit of lube, I washed everything I could out. YUCK!!! This is worse than the injections!! Thank God I used a tiny bit o' lube because it was all sore & dry in there.... :( :( :shock:

my poor DH is wondering when we can have sex & I'm like...uh not until I'm off this awful Crinone crap!! Which probably won't be for weeks i'm assuming <HUGE sigh>
