Hi all - just got my first beta result. HCG level is at 981 and I go back in 2 days to test again. I'm 11dp6dt so 17dpo?

EmWaz - what does that mean? I thought sometimes they can't see/hear both if they're "hiding" from the ultra sound. As for the rate isn't that also dependent on so many things? When is your next appointment?

Congratulations Yellow!!! Super exited for you. What grade embies u transfer? Do u recall how many day u were taken coq10 for? Sendibg lot of love, huge and prayer for a healthy babies.
Emwaz, im confuse ;( your beta was prety high, what is the doc saying? Ah sending lots of huge your way.

This is what makes me so scare, i dont know if i can handle one more negative.
I just came from my ultrasound 3 weeks on birthcontrol, have a massive migraine. The doc was not in so didnt gave a conversation with him. But i did see the result and apparently all cyst are gone i have one folicle on each ovary measuring 5mm. The only thing i was concern is the uterine lining at cd 23 only messuring 2.5mm. What the heck. This is not good. Does this happen on birth control?? This has been one of his concer ever time we have done iui my lining has been around 7mm.

Emwaz, I'm so sorry but hang in there. I'm sending you all kinds of positive vibes and prayers that this was just a weird ultrasound and that the next one will reveal that both embies are still there and kicking.

Yellow, congrats! It's totally gonna be twins :D

MG - congrats on getting rid of your cysts, that's great news. I'm sorry to hear about the lining though. What did the doctor say about it? They can usually give you meds to improve the thickness of the lining. I hope this isn't a big deterrent. What's next for you?

AFM, the clinic just called to confirm my BFN. It's disappointing but I was prepared. I have two frozen embryos but I'd like to go ahead with another IVF cycle first to get more embies and then send them all off for PGS testing. Seeing my doctor next week.

Emwaz no way :(. Hang in there, their is a silver lining for all of us. One day one day we will all look at this and say it was all worthed.
Pandagrl, my doc has not really treated my lining, with injectable it grow yo the base line 7mm at one point it was 9mm perfect 5 follicles i really thought that was my lucky month but it wasn't. That why i think my eggies has something to do. Maybe the egg quality is not there. Thats why i stated on the coq10 and drea suppliments that i have read so much on the ivf cycle they will start you on 90 day treatment prior to the egg retrival. By the end of the month i would be 60 day on the suppliment crossing my finger this will do the trick. I started the lupron .10cc last night i didnt know i should take it in the Am. But o well i will do another one this afternoon and then move it earlier in the day. I take my last birthcontrol last night. How soon should i see rf? The office will like me too call for the next step.
We are doing the protocal of ivf without the egg retrival trigger and iui.
Pandagrl see if you can also start on the supplements i also order maca and royal jelly i read good thing about it. Do you know how soon you will start your next ivf cycle? If this does not work for me i will definitely do the ivf in July early August.

panda - the good thing is you don't have to go through a stim cycle and your body will be in top shape for your transfer. the second transfer worked for me... at least for now! i just need to get through this next hurdle and make sure there's a beating heart(s).

emwaz - any update?

mg - i was taking prenatals, vit d and Coq10 for a few months prior to IVF. We've been trying for quite some time now so i've been taking the pills off and on but regularly from a few months ago. I also did some acupuncture leading up to both IVF's, but didn't have any sessions for this recent FET.

I'm so concerned about my stress level this time around... work is terrible. I have anxiety in general, but there's so much added pressure with work stuff. I've been trying to meditate/relax and DH has been relatively helpful, but I can't help but think my stress is affecting my body and might have negative effects on my BFP.

How are you all holding up? Happy monday? :)

Hi guys. I know it has been awhile, but I needed time to process. On Monday, 5/22 I had my follow up U/S. It showed no heartbeat in the larger sac, which turned out to have two babies in it, and a nearly non-existant hb in the smaller sac. No growth or development from the week before. I had a D&C on Friday 5/26. The Dr confirmed no fetal heart activity at that point. We are awaiting results of the genetic testing to see if there was a chromosomal anomaly which caused the loss. We are simply heart broken. I am not sure if we will continue from here as we have the two frozen, but without pgs (that is not something we can afford) if the testing of the loss indicates a problem we may not choose to go forward.

Emwaz so sorry to hear that. :( two in a sac? identical twin!! Wao. No words.. you have been in my prayer and will continue to pray for your blessing to come. How soon will you get the results back?

As for me still on the stimulation until tonight ultrasound tomorrow cd 16 its been a long one for me. Lupron for 20days follistim 10days with menopur. On Friday on my scan i had 12 on the raise. 17, 16 16 16 14 14 14 12 12 12 10mm . I should be ready to trigger tomorrow. Iui not egg retrival Wednesday God willing all i want is one healthy baby, not 4 but we wanted to increase my changes with more folicles. Fingers cross for a bfp on this 9th iui. Feeling full i just hope that i dont get to much bloated and sore.

Oh Emwaz, I'm so so sorry. I wish I could say something to make you feel better. I hope you do at least come around to wanting to use your frozen embies. Even if the loss was due to chromosomal abnormalities, that doesn't mean the two embryos you have left are also affected by the same.

This journey is so freakin' hard. Hang in there.

MG - how are you? Did you trigger? Did you have your IUI? Sending you tons of baby dust that this works for you!

Yellow - how's it going? Please please tell me that the bleeding went away and that you're doing fine.... praying for you.

As for me, I can't do another IVF right away because we don't have enough time before I start teaching. I'll be teaching until the end of August so I'm not thinking about going ahead with IVF#2 at the end of August. But I'm not sure at this. It's such an overwhelmingly huge amount of money. I have two frosties left. I will use those at some point, just have to figure out if I'm doing IVF again or what. In the meantime, we are trying the old fashioned way and I'm in a tww at the moment.
