So exciting to read all about all the bfp's! Babydust to all of us! Woke to the absolute worst cramps ever along with low back pain? Still testing a faint positive (9dpiui (-); 11dpiui (+), 12dpiui (+)). Anyone know what this cramping is all about? I see a few of you have it as well...

Didiwait-I think it may be the uterus stretching?? I'm not positive but seems like that is what could be happening at this time for us!!

Thanks Galai! I didn't even know that was a "thing", lol. I was worried I might be having a reaction to all the meds but thought it was odd since its been a few weeks now. This is my first IUI so I have no idea what to expect. How about this beta testing...do they tell you while you wait in the office it does it take a while to run the labs? My BF is out of town for work when I test but he's anxious to find out but I'm not sure when I'll actually know.

Galai - Thank you for your insight into the laparascopy. I should be hearing from my RE's office today to schedule it. I am so nervous. Also Congrats on your BFP!!

Congrats to DidIwait2long, LiegeyGirl and Poochie as well!!!! SO many BFPs making me feel hopeful when I try again in the fall.

DidIwait-it's lab work that they have to run!! My RE does all the lab work right in their office! I go in the am and by 1pm I usually have the results! That was how they checked my labs during the cycle! I don't think that it is any different for the beta! They usually do at least 2 betas about 2 days apart from each other! They check to make sure the number is doubling which means you have a true pregnancy and not just a chemical pregnancy!!

Thanks Galai! The other labs usually take 3 hours I just wasn't sure if they run this one any faster. I knew I'd have to go back in 48 hours but didn't know about the doubling, thx! Chemical pregnancy? Does that just mean a false positive from the meds?

Didiwait-No it's not a false positive! You were indeed pregnant, you just miscarry before ultrasound can be performed!

Lovelies, I just did another test using CB Digital with Conception Indicator, it shows "zwanger 2-3" or "Pregnant 2-3" in Dutch...how could it be when I'm only 15 DPIUI/DPO?

Hi Ladies - I have a bit of a sad update. I had some recurring spotting - which was no big deal. But on Saturday I had some pretty moderate cramping and more of a heavy flow, I knew it wasn't good. I spent most of the afternoon in bed and hardly slept through the night. I called the on-call Dr, they were super nice. They scheduled me for a Hcg Sunday morning. (They are open all the time!) We went, and then they decided to do an u/s too. They didn't see anything, which was partially expected because I was only 5 weeks 6 days. The blood work came back a few hours after, and the Hcg levels had dropped to 898 (from 1025). So we are letting this cycle run its course. I have a steady flow right now, and I'm sore (& possibly a little constipated; they recommended Colace, no laxatives). I will continue to be monitored and have blood work every few days to watch the levels (The end result would be 0.0). It's sad for us, but it's farther than we've ever been in this process. It's almost sickening how positive we've been - but we are strong together, and know that it may take more than one try - and more than one large setback - to reach our ultimate goal of having a family.

We greatly appreciate all the comments and *baby dust* and these groups have been fun to be a part of. We'll take a bit of a break from posting, but will certainly be back as soon as we can.

Best of luck to all of you and *baby dust* for all!
Mrs. and Mrs.

Emilyjoan-I am so sorry to hear that!! Will keep you both in my prayers and hope you can start again next month!! So very sorry!!

Poochie-could it be multiples? Maybe your hcg level is very high due to multiples so it's showing 2-3weeks? Congrats!!

Hey ladies!! Just a quick update. Hubby and I went in for our first transvaginal ultrasound and we found 2 heartbeats!! Woot woot!! It's 2 little people in there! We couldn't believe it. My hubby is past excited and I'm planning mode. New ultrasound tomorrow and graduating from my RE. We'll see how that goes.

I'm so sorry to hear the news about the miscarriages. Please stay encouraged and know that we will be here regardless of our news. I have a testimony to share to help someone else and I'm definitely going to do that.
