mg - my friend patiently waited for cysts to go away, for fluids to go away and now she's around 5 months pregnant!! Maybe your body just needs to reset itself. The financial, physical and mental toll is ridiculous but i'm hoping it's worth it for all of us and speaking of.....


WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?? I can't share with anyone but you guys bc other people will think I'm crazy... 5dp6dt. I think I see something... i've been crying, running around the house putting up the test against dark backgrounds, light backgrounds etc. Now I've gone to the effort to upload it and ask your opinions....

I'm also trying to chug more water so I can test again....

Yellow! I see it!!!!! That's definitely a line! I see you posted this pic in the late afternoon yesterday. Have you tried testing this morning with less diluted urine? I bet the line is stronger :D Oh man, I'm so happy for you, YES! It's making me both excited and terrified to test myself. I have never felt this scared to test. Ugh. Are you feeling any symptoms? I don't feel anything and it's freaking me out. Can't wait to hear how your testing goes today!

MG - I do understand how you're feeling. I was all ready to start IVF in September 2016 and I backed out at the last minute. It's a big decision. There's so much pressure, financial and emotional. And yet there's this fear that you can't stop, you have to keep going. But you also need to give your body a break. I would say try to take a break for a month or two. It'll let your reproductive system calm down and will help to clear your mind. Will help with collecting more money too.

Yellow:(!) Congrats! Looks like a good line for so early!

Panda: Try not to count yourself out! I was sure at 7dp5dt that I was out. I was not feeling anything except regular progesterone symptoms. Even now at 6weeks4days (with twins!) I don't have a lot of symptoms. Today I am feeling nauseated, peeing a lot, and tired even though I slept 8 hours and only got up once to go to the bathroom!

My next ultrasound is Tuesday. I am not as anxious as the first even though one was a bit smaller. Just hoping we still have two little heartbeats!

Hi there, I was hoping I could join in.. I had my FET on April 13. We transfered two embryos. I was super nervous because they were supposed to do PGD on them but there was a mix up so even though they made it to day 5 I'm still not confident they're viable. Anyway got a bfp 9dp5dt. Went for my first scan today and it's twins! We're ridiculously excited but again so nervous. One of them is a bit smaller with a slower heartbeat. It's also in a funny position right again the uterine wall. Now I have to wait another three weeks til the next scan... hope everyone else is doing well and coping with nerves better than me xx
Me- 32 DH- 30
ttc # 1 since July 2013
2014- rounds of clomid, Femara, hsg, ovulation scans etc. All bfn
2015- multiple iui's. All bfn. Laparoscopy to remove endo and discovered pcos. More clomid.. bfn
2016- ivf #1 - 13 eggs retrieved. 1 made it to freeze. Died during defrost. Three months of DHEA and coQ10 before we could continue.
Ivf#2- menopur round- 7 eggs collected 2 made it to freeze. FET April 13- BFP!!
May 11- 6 weeks 5 days- scan says twins!!

mg - no trigger shot for me, also the line seems to have gotten a tiny bit darker. I'm going to go buy some other brands today to test on those like the maniac I've become!

panda - I'm already starting to feel nauseous in the mornings and my sleep has been super sporadic. Last night I passed out at 10 something and woke up right before 8am but I'm EXHAUSTED and feel like I could sleep another 10 hours. Did you hold out this whole time? :) Did you say your beta was today?? I know we transferred on the same day but I think you said your office visit was earlier than mine.

EmWaz - can't wait for your update on Tuesday! I'm secretly hoping for twins too even though it would be a huge stress on us, physically, emotionally, financially, etc. My DH and I bicker enough without having them, but at the same time a big(ger) family sounds so appealing.

Alexi - welcome! You can enjoy the twin experience with EmWaz and maybe hopefully me since I transferred two too. We are definitely not doing better with the nerves... each step seems like such a crazy hurdle... and it's never over! Do you have any symptoms? I don't see a signature line, was there a reason you wanted to do PGS? We were going to too, but didn't have enough embryos and we didn't want to risk losing anyway. I've heard different schools of thought though... if you have a history of certain conditions it's worth it, but if not, then it's not worth it. Also, I think age is an important factor. Anyway keep us updated on how you're feeling throughout these next few weeks!

Yellow, oh wow if you're feeling symptoms already I bet there are two in there!!! So exciting! How'd your other testing go? What other brands of tests have you done? Were they all BFPs? I have a bunch of tests stashed away but I am STILL holding out. I think I'm a couple days behind you, had my retrieval on May 7th so I'm only 5dp5dt. If I test the floodgates will open and I'll be POAS every couple hours, lol.

Alexi, welcome and congrats! Did you test for the first time on 9dp5dt?

Emwaz and McGlupe, how's it going? Hope everyone is doing alright.

Panda I wouldn't count yourself out yet. My line was super light as you saw on that day and I've been quiet because in fact the lines got lighter not darker over the next few days and I thought I was out too. It was only today that it got darker and I'm at 8dp6dt.

I forgot your transfer was later than mine but our betas are on same day - on Tuesday right? This is a lucky thread we are all going to have BFPs and keep them!! Have you tried different brands? I ended up not going to buy more tests because I didn't want to waste anymore money if it was going to be negative.

I was wondering why you weren't posting too much, Yellow. I'm relieved to hear that the lines got darker again. I tested with a cheapie test. I have an FRBR but I refuse to use it. I tested only once yesterday morning. I know it's kind of early but with my last pregnancy, I had a BFP and symptoms right away. Unfortunately I'm so familiar with the feeling of a BFN that I truly can't imagine this is going to be a BFP. But thanks for having hope for me. I suppose there might be a bit of a chance still.... (not holding my breath tho). I don't want to test today cuz it's mother's day and I don't want to be depressed. I'll test again tomorrow. And yes, my beta is on Tuesday. How are you feeling?

Yea let's see what happens for both of us on Tuesday. TMI but my pad is having a little pinkish/brownish stain. I've been using them because of the 3x a day suppositories ugh. That's been freaking me out a little and also I didn't take the antibiotics I was supposed to before and after transfer and I'm feeling a little weird down there. I can't describe it and of course tried different adjectives on google but haven't come up with anything. It's not actually itchy or painful kind of throbbing but ticklish? I know it sounds so weird but that's got me stressed a little too.

Also back to the grind tomorrow. I have a meeting w an exec tomorrow that hates me and that always stressed me out ugh.

On a lighter note, hope you ladies all had a good weekend! ;p

Tested again this morning, BFN :cry:

Yellow, I've heard that spotting is totally okay so try not to worry too much, especially if it's just a bit. I wasn't prescribed an antibiotic for transfer so it's probably okay that you didn't take it. Hopefully your clinic will have some good advice for you when they call to tell you about your beta. If you're feeling anxious though it doesn't hurt to call them now to discuss your symptoms. My fingers are crossed that it's nothing.

Panda - hopefully we all get good news tomorrow. It looks like you me and EmWaz have apptmts tmrw. Worst case scenario you have so many frozen. I have to go through two rounds just to get my four. So if these two didn't take then we only have two and less quality. But let's hope those other frosties are for your next babies!! ;)

My appointment today did not go well. He could only find one heartbeat and it was measuring slower than it should. I am not feeling very hopeful. :( Really hoping everyone else gets good news today.
