Pleasethistime, yay for Tuesday betas! I will probably test at home this weekend... Patience is not one of my virtues :) I'm not feeling any changes in my body which is starting to get me a bit down. But I know, it's way too early! It's only 3dp5dt... Time couldn't be moving any slower.... :mrgreen:

Hopeful - oh man, I'm so sorry to hear about the cancelled cycle. I don't think there is much n this world that is more challenging and frustrating then the roadblocks of infertility that are completely out of our control. So sorry - keep us posted though, I know your BFP is just around the corner!

Please and Panda - oh Tuesday is going to be an exciting day! Don't let the lack of symptoms throw you off. With my first pregnancy I didn't have a single symptom. My only indication I was pregnant in the entire first tri was just tiredness. Nothing else!

Well I'm at 8dp5dfet. This is the day I found out I was pregnant with my daughter - so I'm going to test tonight! During our consult before beginning out FET adventure, my doc said, "I think there is a baby there for you" when assessing our frosties. I'm trying to be realistic and understand the first few may not take, but hopefully our sweetheart is in this batch of beautiful wonderful frosties. What a crazy adventure. I feel so bipolar sometimes. Super excited at the possibilities and BAM I turn super depressed thinking about the what-ifs.

So wish me luck! So nervous! My beta is Friday. Perfect timing becaus hubby and I have a date scheduled. We will either be celebrating or drinking. Haha

Oh and last night I did the PIO injections on myself! Not so ad, but super awkward angles, and hard to push the fluid in. But done and done!

Oh and yes - lack of caffeine, excercise AND lack of alcohol, mixed with thladies stress of IVF -- I'm a TREAT to be around these days! Lol

So well said! Nothing has tested my patience as much as this journey, it has been absolutely excruciating, all that waiting! So cool that this is the anniversary of getting your positive with your daughter, I think it's a great day to test. Keeping my fingers crossed for you! And thanks for the encouragement re no symptoms, that makes me feel better.

Snowxx, welcome to our little group! Congrats on your ER, 18 is a great number, wishing you all the best for a great fertilization report.

Welcome snow! And thanks so much for th words of encouragement Panda! I love how supportive and empathetic this group is.

I tested last night and got a blinding BFN. I think it's safe to say I'm out. I'm definitely bummed, but trying not to think about it too much and carry on. Beta is tomorrow.

pandagrl: thanks for the encouraging words, yes they will be changing my medication (well the Lupron to be exact) not sure to what yet. I meet with the doctor in 2wks.

you're right I'm trying to think of it in a positive way, next cycle is a few weeks away and hopefully that one will work

Lots of baby dust to us all xoxoxo

Hello,
I got fertilization result. 11 out from 18 eggs are fertilized. Will do the transfer on Monday. Starting to take Endometrin tomorrow. We have not decided how many embryos are transfered in. Dr recommends two at most. One wil be normal for my age. I am 30yrs.

Hi all,

I've been following the group for the past couple of days and I'm just now getting the time to post about "our" little adventure.

You can see from my history my first IVF was super successful with at now 21 month old perfect baby boy. However, our efforts for our sibling for our son have not been very successful. We did 3 transfers after I stopped breast feeding in May of last year that all failed. We are really at a point where it's unexplained.

I had my 4th transfer on May 4th and I'm currently 8dp5dt, and my beta in this Sunday on Mother's Day :| I haven't tested yet (the last 3 transfers I tested early and was very disappointed). My husband thinks mother's day will be a good omen (i hope) and would prefer we wait till sunday!! We tried to throw the kitchen sink at this cycle, had embryos Tested, this ERA biopsy which resulted in us doing Progestrone shots in the AM instead of the PM, Acupuncture b4 transfer and right after, on an auto-immune protocol to rule that out. Daily visualization meditation. I even sent my son to his grandparents for a week so I could rest and take it easy for 5 days.

I really haven't felt any symptoms besides being tired (due to lack of caffeine and no exercising) and some mild cramping on the left side and just today a little heavy feeling where my c-section scar is. I'm trying to hold and not test, I have a pregnancy test waiting for me in my purse.

Good luck to all that are finding out this week. And thank you all for sharing your stories, it's definitely made me feel sooo supported as no one really knows what this is like unless you are going through it.

Elephant, welcome, sorry to hear about the BFNs, here's hoping Mother's Day brings us all some good news! I'm 5dp5dt and i'm trying to hold off on testing until Sunday as well but I'm worried about it being negative so wondering if I should test tomorrow? Actually I'm very tempted to just test right now! But I'm trying to control myself... so hard :)

Snow, excellent fertilization report! At 30 I wouldn't transfer more than 1 unless you want twins. Good luck!

Elephant, stay positive! Hope you get BFP on the Mother's Day!
Pandagrl, Thank you for your advise. We probably will transfer one. Too many risks and stress if having twins.

Queeny - how did you get on? I've been thinking about you loads! Hoping you're okay!

Panda - have you tested yet? I tested this morning and got a BFP!! I couldn't be happier, however i didn't test out my trigger so hoping it isn't a false alarm! I always tested out my trigger with my IUI's and it was always gone by now so i'm really hopeful!

Elephant - I'm pleased you've joined this group, it's so nice getting extra support! Fingers crossed for Sunday! I do believe all the extra stuff you've done will help! I wouldn't worry about no symptoms. As i said i got a positive and i haven't had symptoms.

Snow - Good luck for your transfer!

Hey everyone.

Well, I'm in a bit of hell right now. So, my beta was 10dp5dt. At this point with my previous pregnancy, my hcg level was 179, and anything over 5 is considered pregnant.

My level was 6. Friggin 6. How frustrating! My poor little bean tried to attach but it's not going to work. Unfortunately that leaves me in limbo right now. Still taking my meds and I need another blood draw tomorrow. I'm trying to look at the positives - at least my body wants to be pregnant!

Will update tomorrow.

Panda - I'm so sorry to hear about the BFN, and I know how disappointing it can be to see that blinding negative. But don't lose hope! It's still early! What kind of test did you use? It's not over until the numbers say so. And even then, I'm learning, it may not be that simple. Haha. My fingers are crossed for you and I'll send happy positive thoughts for Mondays beta!

Please - a bfp? Omg, that's such wonderful news! How many dpt were you, 8? I'm so happy for you! I can't wait to hear how your beta goes on Monday!

Elephant - welcome! I agree, it sounds like you have definitely lined all your ducks in a row for a successful transfer. I didn't have any symptoms either when I got preggers the first round. Does that mean testing tomorrow? Oh I'm eager to hear how it goes! Best of luck! I'm also interested in learning more about your visualization techniques for next round.

Snow - excellent fertilization report! When is your transfer scheduled for?
