Hope everything went well, Hpusateri!!! Fingers crossed so hard!!!

Lindsey, your beta numbers are pretty close to what mine were with twins...just sayin' :wink: Although I know they can vary a lot... Mine were higher this time than they were with my daughter, but it's still a singleton. How long till your first ultrasound?

Mglupe, that's a tough call, waiting for your regular doctor or going forward with someone else in the office. I've done it both ways successfully, but it definitely feels reassuring to have the person that knows you better. Hoping you can get scheduled soon!

AFM, not much to report, besides being able to smell wayyyy more gross smells than usual, and needing to eat constantly. I know that my fat pouch is just fat and not baby, but I seriously can't suck it in any more, and I'm afraid people are going to start asking me, lol... Last time around I thought it was because of twins, but...maybe not. I'm only 8 weeks, so I don't want to spill just yet. Going back for a repeat ultrasound on Friday to make sure everything still looks good.

Good luck!


I offered to pick up a shift at my second job, so I worked 14 hours on Monday, def helped me fall asleep the night before, but I still didn’t fall asleep until later than normal. When is your transfer?
So far so good though!

MG I'm not sure if you will normalize your cycle. Were you regular before? Mine is everywhere. Of course because I wanted to get it over with this month it was up to CD35. My period was short this time though. I think your body has been through a lot though it could take a while.

Hpusateri my CD14 lining check is on the 16th and I *think* they will do my transfer on the 22nd.

I'm honestly getting to the point where I don't to talk to friends and family about anything related to this. I think it might be motivated by the fear of it not working out.

That's a legitimate fear and feeling, banana. I feel that way a lot too. It's one thing to talk to everyone about a failure after the fact, but it makes it so much harder when there are multiple people anxiously awaiting news and asking you for updates. If they don't know, you're free to tell them (or not) on your own time, and in a way that's more manageable for you. We never told anyone about any of our transfers ahead of them taking place. And when they failed, I could just send an after the fact text, as it's much easier to keep myself from getting emotional when I can put it in writing instead of over the phone or in person.

Banana yes we are better off not tell to many people or any one of our transfer date. It seem that they do put more presure on us and stress than we need when they keep asking questions. I notice this last one i did. Didnt tell no one. Not even my mom. And i was more relax and you all kept me in sane lol.

Well rf just showed her ugly face and i think i have my mine set for one more cycle off. Will call the office tomorrow and see what they have to say.

It takes a while for the cycle to return to Normal after such a stressful procedure,it took me 4-6cyxle for mine to return to Normal after my losses.
Indeed is best for our families not to know sometimes bcs of the pressure and the questions and my case the guilt of each loss.
I’m sorry ladies for not posting more,I swear I haven’t abandoned you now that I’m pregant is bcs i have sooo much things going I can’t see my head .
I wnat see more bfps here.

I def kept the amount of people who know to a minimum....even if it does work, I still want to be able to announce we’re expecting, it’s bad enough this process has robbed us of all the other joys of a normal conception.

2 looong days down.....
I was hoping for implantation cramping or something! I feel too normal lol, it’s making me uneasy

Technically, today IS Day 10, 4dp6dt.... but I think I am going to hold off a little longer, I’m not ready to be sad yet if it didn’t work, especially with no back up egg available. I feel crampy here and there and I had a zit on my chin this morning, worried it’s PMS :(
I am sooooo happy for you pregnant mommas though :D :D

Hpusateri I got a big zit on my chin too right after which is usually a big pms indicator for me! Cramps are good too! Good for you for holding out, I couldn’t do it!
