Question. It's 9pm and I have cramps and spotting. For sure if I wake up in the middle of the night it will be full flow. Would you count today as CD1 or tomorrow morning? I'm not usually this nit picky but it's finally my transfer month and I want to do it right. Thoughts? I'm leaning to CD1 tomorrow.

I think the next day would be technically because After midnight is next day but maybe you’ll be able to get your transfer one day sooner!

Got my beta back today at 425! I’m still processing this!!!! I can’t believe it’s true! Go back Monday to make sure it’s doubling and first ultrasound in 2.5 weeks!

I have to continue the PIO through the first trimester! That’s 8 more weeks. I’m not sure if my bum can take it so I might switch to vaginal after the ultrasound. Not sure which is worse

I'm on my first and last shot too. It's a little terrifying that after all these years and two surgeries (one for each of us) it's all come down to this. I'm excited but I think more than anything I'm scared.

Congrats!
I totally understand how you feel about the IM injections, I have only done 3 so far and my bum muscles ache so much! lol. I never thought I would wish for the vaginal pills 3 times a day so much, which was part of my original protocol if I had been able to do fresh transfer....

Hpusateri- good luck tomorrow!! Everything will go great for you!
Mglupe what are your next steps?
I got my second beta at 1142 up from 425. Go back again Friday. At first I thought it’s for sure twins but now thinking only 1. Did you guys have any more significant symptoms for twins?

Great beta numbres lindsey. You transfer two. You still have a good probability.
As for me just waiting for rf. I have alot going in this month that im debating to wait one more cycle before i try my last emby. Looking at the calender transfer is going to probably fall the week the kids will start school. Since i have to travel and my mom is off island its going to be a challenge. Im also on the the last phase of my house and its been very stress full. I also had call the office and my doc will be off on vacation and i dont trust anyone else. Thell are professional on what they do but i feel my doc give me special attention since i been trying for so long.
Let see what i decide. However in the mean time love reading all these positive news and i guess i will be the last one from our group pending transfer

Thinking of you Hpusateri. Were you able to sleep okay? I'm not sure if I'll be able to on the eve of the big night.

Good luck!
