Hi All, this is my first IVF after 3 failed IUI cycles. I'm currently on 8dpt and I had a 5dt with one hatching blastocyst. I promised myself I wouldn't fixate during this 2 week wait, obviously this is not going according to plan. I am on Progesterone oil injections, 2x Cyclogist pessaries, 3x Progynova tablets daily. Have no symptoms apart for the past 2 evening I felt nauseous and skipped dinner. I've been testing with a clear blue digital and a super drug cheapie. Yesterday the cheapie got a fait line, which I'm sure is an evap line. Tried again today with morning urine and it was bfn. The nurse told me to test on the 5th so I'm 2 days away. Unless I get my AF before, which ive read is not possible if I'm on Progesterone. Is anyone due to test on similar days?

I was on a standard FET protocol this time. BCP then added delestrogen injections every 3 days. Lining check (I was at about 9mm) then added PIO daily. My FET was 9/22. I had my first Beta today and it was 552. Second draw scheduled for Friday. My Dr monitors with bloodwork until about 2000, so I may have another Monday. Trying to take everything one day at a time!

Nicksy - wooohoooo! Cannot wait to hear about your beta!
Afm, injections are going fine. Today I got a weird pinching feeling in my lower belly on both sides. I have blood work tomorrow and ultrasound is Sunday.

Thank you ladies for keeping me and my embies in your prayers. I really dont know what or when will be my next step. I dont even know anything on my embies, trying nit to think to much on them. Im saving all the extra menopur and follistim that i had in my frige kepping it nice and cold at the hotel where my hubby works. Think i will try and call the office on Friday to see if the phone works and i get some good news.
I want to say that im kind of glad it was cancel when they did the egg retrival. I would be so extra stress with all this devastation around us. I would have probably left in one of the mercy flight out.
Im very happy to continue to see and read positive post from you all.
Pandagrl how are you doing what is the last update? Is baby kiking already? God bless you all.
Depending on my cycle this month and my embies have servived i will most definitely see how everything is for late novembre or decembre, ufff that will put my due date on the hurricane season. Grrrr

Hi Ladies, it feels so better reading your comments. Knowing I'm not alone on this longgggg journey. I tested this morning as my nurse told me and got the faintest of faint lines. But it is there. I used a FRER as heard they are the best. My nurse recommends that I give it till Sunday and see if anything changes, then do the blood test. I will try and post of pic and tell me what you think. Probably looking into it too much.

Definitely a line, Saz, congrats! Sending you positive vibes for a sticky bean and darkening lines.

Emwaz, good stuff, that's a great first beta!

McGlupe, i'm glad to hear that you at least have somewhere to store your meds. I hope you get through to the clinic and I pray that everything is okay with your embryos. You're right, it did work out okay that you didn't have a transfer last time, I think this is a positive sign. As for me, I'm feeling some cramping right where the baby is, sharp stabbing pain. I am worried but there is no bleeding so nothing I can do but wait. I did a blood test for chromosomes and for gender. I should get the results by the end of this week. Praying that everything is okay.

Saz: Def a line there. Congratulations and fxed for a sticky healthy bean!

mglupe- my heart is completely broken for you and your country. I can't imagine what you are going through. My heart is with you and everyone in PR. Thank goodness you still have your meds though. Hopefully there will be a bright light at the end of all that devastation, which will be your bouncy baby. Maybe a break will be a blessing in disguise. I will keep you in my prayers.

Saz- Welcome!!! That definitely looks like a positive!! Congrats! Take it easy and make sure that bean is nice is sticky. :) Can't wait to hear about your journey.

Nickysy- congrats on you transfer!!! I can't wait to hear the good news that comes! I will be praying for a sticky bean!

panda- how are you feeling?

Em- Welcome!!! :) I will keep my fingers crossed for you and will pray for you.

Beth- I have the same concerns. I have the type of personality that likes to be in control so this whole process goes against everything in me. I think it is great you wrote everything down though. Writing can be so helpful and such a cathartic experience and help take some of the edge off. I am praying for you. I hope it all comes as a breeze for you and everything goes off without a hitch.

AFM, I currently have 22 follicles and they all vary in sizes the largest being 19mm right now the smallest being 11mm. I have to take my meds tonight and tomorrow night. I trigger tomorrow night and Sunday is my retrieval!!! I can't believe we are almost there. Even though we are no where near being done, I feel great knowing I am almost done with the stims and am moving forward. I have been on stims for 15 days now and I am ready to be done lol Can't wait to be in the TWW with some of you ladies and hopefully, we can all be pregnant together :)
