  1. jroh0011 - Hoping all was smooth with your ER today. Welcome to the 2ww!

  2. This is my first IVF Cycle and am currently 15 days past transfer. I had my first pregnancy test yesterday and got a BFP. My beta was 198. The nurse said this was pretty high--does that mean there is a chance for multiples? I go back in the morning and am hoping the numbers keep rising!

  3. Good Morning Ladies,

    Just a quick update for me. I'm home from my ER and they were able to get 15 follies, DH and I were so happy. I'm sore, and tired but in good spirits. RE said my lining looks fantastic and very optimistic because of how good it looks! I'll take any good news I can get! Thank you for all of the kind words and encouragement, it truly means a lot.

    Baby Dust to all!

    There is really no way of knowing if it's multiples until the day of your u/s but sounds like a nice strong beta. Everyone has been fooled by beta's at one time or another. Good luck and congrats!

  5. txsooner--congrats!!!!!!!!!! that's fabulous! I don't think your beta is high enough that you should assume multiples, but you can't rule it out either. unfortunately the waiting game isn't over yet--what torture! but now at least it's good torture--yay for your BFP!!
    if you don't mind, what was your cycle like? how many did you transfer? did you POAS first?

    jroh0011--that's fabulous!!! what a great #! relax tonight and tomorrow you'll get a great report--so exciting!

    lilibeck--congrats! how fantastic! how are you feeling?

    grace44k--fabulous!! yolk sacs means they are real sacs, developing properly--a great early sign. how do you feel?

    shelly--how did everything go today? can't wait to hear the update

    AFM--just 2wwing--true torture! beta is 8/25--seems years and years away. what i wouldn't give to be able to go to the gym or have a beer!

  6. So great to see lots of bfps on here- congratulations to all of you!!!! And to those of you that didn't get your bfp this time, I'm so sorry- this is such a hard road that we all have to take but don't give up...I truly believe that all things happen at the time they happen for a reason...

    AFM, I was waiting for a long time to get going and I'm finally in the stimulation phase. I had one check so far yesterday and things look good. Today is my 6th day of stim meds so I'm figuring my retrieval will be somewhere between next Wed-Fri.

    Baby dust to you all, Laura

  7. merec--Thank you!! We had 10 (of 24 retrieved) injected with frozen sperm. They transfered 2 and unfortunately none of the remaining 8 were developed enough to freeze. I was really bummed about that and so I needed some hope. I did a HPT on Day 10 and it was a BFP. I knew not to get my hopes up though. I just got back from my 2nd beta--results this afternoon. Am a little worried b/c I did have some weird discharge last night. The nurse seemed to think it was old blood--but it definitely didn't look like that to me. We'll see!

    Baby dust to all!

  8. chouk--how exciting! don't worry about the discharge, it's probably your skyrocketing hormone levels Can't wait to hear your levels. Woo hoo!

  9. Of course I POAS! I also got my first beta back today it was 34! I am only 7dpet so the Dr said thats a good number! Now, we just pray for doubling numbers on Monday!

  10. Today is the 10th day following my ET and I broke down and took a First Response early detection htp. Well, it was negative, not even a faint line. It is so devastating. My blood test is Monday and I don't hold any hope. Wish I knew what went wrong. My estrogen skyrocketed to almost 14,000 on only 150IU of Puregon so they gave me Dostinex to bring it down. I had 31 follicles but only 13 were big enough at retrieval time and I ended up with 13 eggs, 10 mature and all 10 fertilized. All were still going well on day 3 but 50% perished on day 4 so that left 5 only on day five. My lining was 13.6 and my doctor was really worried about multiples in my case so we transferred only 1. Of the 4 left two were able to be frozen. I am 39 but my fsh is pretty good at 6.7 but now I am sitting here super upset.
    What went wrong? I don't have health insurance so I can only afford to keep trying for more than 2 more cycles. If anyone has insights please share.

  11. Oh Pasquale I am so so sorry. Don't give up yet. Did you read my posting about a co-worker of mine that was pregnant and had a healthy baby but NEVER got a positive reading on a HPT. They are not that reliable in our situations. Don't give up yet. I do understand about the health insurance part..it's just plain shitty!!! We just paid off a credit card with a HUGE amount of IVF debt on it!!!!
    I can't quite remember your story...did you do any type of donor??? what about investigating another clinic?? We went through 2 failed IVFs 8 years ago with another clinic and now here we are with a new one and it's made a big difference. Hang in there and I am so very sorry....I know your desperation and disappointment. It's so unfair!

  12. Pasquale~ i do hope that hpt is wrong and you'll get the best surprise of your life on Monday! As far as what went wrong,,,,,,,it isn't 100%. You just may not have been lucky this time. I had two perfect embryos transferred the first IVF and bfn, the second, same protocol,,,,,,,,,way more embryos and bfp. I just got my second bfp in a row. I swear after the first bfn, I felt so defeated and thought I'd be that girl it NEVER worked for. Then I looked at the statistics and realized that even at a success rate of 65% with everything being optimal, it can still fail. That doesn't mean that the next time won't be completely different. I am so glad I didn't give up. I was willing to try three times before I'd say enough was enough. I also feel the clinic learns so much on that first cycle. If this isn't your time,,,,,,,,,,,,please stay positive and kind to yourself. So many people have failed cycles before their miracle happens.

    susan

    PS~ I did transfer two embryos day 3 the first IVF
    three embryos day 3 the second IVF
    two blasts day 5 the third IVF (just this July)

    I believe I need numbers although they claim it doesn't increase your chances by much, I'd take any help I could.

  13. Cosmo & Just
    Thank you for your kind words. I feel that time is running out and I want this so badly. I have been trying to stay positive and hoping for a huge surprise on Monday but also being realistic at the same time. I am prepared to do two more cycles then re-evaluate and possibly finance more attempts. We used donor sperm from a proven donor. Just feeling heartbroken, how strange is that given I knew going into this that IVF is not 100%. I live in Canada and my clinic is one of the top two in the country so I am praying that cycle #2 is a success. Thanks again.

  14. Hi Valley -
    I just read about your negative hpt ... I'm so sorry. I know how absolutely devastating that is. I truly hope you get better news on Monday. Hang in there ... just wanted you to know you'll be in my thoughts tomorrow ...

    AFM - I haven't been on the board much lately since my failed IVF last month. It was pretty devastating news, since I was so sure it worked. At any rate, due to our schedule this month (and lack of insurance coverage), we decided to try IUI this month, with a tentative IVF in Sept. if the IUI doesn't work out. I don't hold out much hope - since we used frozen sperm and there was only one follicle - but you never know. We are just a few days into our 2ww.

    Congrats to everybody with their bfps ... and best wishes to all who are waiting.

  15. Angie - Thank you for your kind thoughts. Wishing you tons of luck on your 2ww!!! Hugs!

  16. I got the results from my second beta on Friday afternoon. It was 568 (from 198 on Wed). My nurse basically said I definitely have something or somethings in my tummy!! Now I have another 2ww until the 7 week sonogram.
    Good luck to everyone who is still waiting to hear...

  17. Hi everyone -

    I just wanted to post a quick update that we heard the heartbeat today! Guys, what a truly amazing thing to hear. I've been waiting for that sound for over 10 years! One HUGE milestone down and a million more to go

    How is everyone from the July group?

  18. Reading all the updates & I am so excited for everyone!!

    AFM~Got the results of my 3rd beta which was run on Thursday (8/13~19dp5dt) and it was almost 14,000!! So we're very excited!! We also had our first u/s on Thursday and did see the sac & yolk, although not much else. There for a minute, she thought she saw a 2nd (which would've been interesting considering we only transferred 1!) but her comment was that she was \"pretty sure it's nothing\"!!

    Needless to say, I'm very anxious for my next u/s this Thursday! Hoping to see a flicker!

    Best wishes to everyone!! Keep the updates coming!!

    i wouldn't stress too much, my clinic doesn't even check my levels and so far everything is fine.

  24. Hey Ladies, I just wanted to stop in and tell you all I'm hanging in there. I go to the Dr for my consultation on why I didnt have a success with having such a great cycle. I will keep u all posted.

    Thank you for all the luv you've shown me.

  25. Hi Excited -
    So good to hear from you! I've not been on the board much lately, but check in every now and again to see how everybody is doing. Good luck at your Dr.'s appt - I have my \"wtf\" appointment next week ... will keep you all posted if there is anything newsworthy ....
