  1. mark_H - Does PIO really cause cramps?? I've never heard that. My subtle cramps are about all I have going for me now. I am also in the no-tell camp. Wouldn't have it any other way!

    angel - those symptoms sound very promising! Especially how you usually get AF while on PIO. Mine takes about 4 days to show up AFTER I stop PIO.... Good luck on Saturday!

    bijukvr - 10dpo is pretty early to test. A girl on my cycling thread just got a light BFP on 11dpo. MB wait until Sunday?? I might take one on Sunday, just so I'm not shocked on Monday (I'll get my beta results in the afternoon).

    ashley - cramping, dizziness, it all sounds good. Good luck on Saturday (HPT). You are lucky your clinic is open on Sundays... I hate to get results while I'm at work.

    AFM, like I said I've had some light cramping, but I think I'm reading into it too much. Was really hoping for some spotting today, since this is the same day I had spotting in my BFP cycle.... Might test on Sunday, when I'll also be 13dpo. My beta is tomorrow. Hard to believe. I wish they'd share the results with me so I can spend my weekend "accordingly!"

    Good luck, ladies!

    -1dpt ..embryo is growing and developing 0dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst 1dpt....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day 2dpt.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining 3dpt.. Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining 4dpt.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining 5dpt.. Morula is completely implanted in the lining and has placenta cells & fetal cells 6dpt...Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood 7dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops 8dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops 9dpt...HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

    I was confused by this because an embryo is a morula before it is a blastocyst?

  3. Forget below post.....found this and it is basically the same minus the morula stuff.
    One The blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell
    Two The blastocyst continues to hatch out of its shell and begins to attach itself to the uterus
    Three The blastocyst attaches deeper into the uterine lining, beginning implantation

    Four Implantation continues
    Five Implantation is complete, cells that will eventually become the placenta and fetus have begun to develop

    Six Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) starts to enter the blood stream
    Seven Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
    Eight Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
    Nine Levels of hCG are now high enough to detect a pregnancy

  4. Hi everyone, well yes I decided to wait until Sunday (11dpo)- so just one more day! That's when I first tested with my DS and got BFP, so I'm praying so hard for his one to come up as well.

    So great to hear of so many symptoms. I'm not really having anything significant to speak of, except for increased hunger and I'm also having insomnia - not sure if it's related?!?!

    Jake, I remember early in my preg with DS that I was full all the time, so hopefully that is a great sign for you! But I also remember that around this time with DS that I had no symptoms whatsoever, so I wouldn't feel concerned if your head isn't stuck in the toilet already... easier said then done though of course!

    Angel, did you decide to test today?

  5. Well, I am in total shock...BFP!

    I can't believe it...2 dark I am feeling good about it. Of course I will test again tomorrow to compare..and pray for a good Beta!!

    Who else is testing today???

  6. I tested this morning and saw something I've never seen in my entire TTC history: two lines. The second one is faint, but it's there. Now I'm trying not to read too much into the faintness part. I did a Target "Compare to First Response"--any thoughts on this test? My hubs saw the line right away and it came up pretty fast.

    I guess today I just have to be happy that there's a second line and so we're not out yet (which I was totally expecting). Beta is tomorrow...

    Angel--CONGRATS! A dark line sounds so reassuring (see above!).

  7. OMG Ashely...CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy for you..can't wait to hear your beta.

  8. Ok, I've got another BFP to add!!!!!

    Mine is faint, but It's there, that's all that matters!

    Angel, 2 dark lines if fabulous.... CONGRATULATIONS! Ashley, my lines were still faintish for a good week, and I had a perfectly healthy DS so CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

    This must be a lucky forum! Beta still not til Friday, but will do another POAS in 2 days to see if the line gets darker.

    Hoping to see great big beta numbers for Angel and Ashley!

  9. What the ....*&^%! Holy BFPs!

    I almost wish I had tested this AM! Who knew this was the lucky day. I bought some tests last night & will test tomorrow. I was too scared to do it today. Had my first beta this AM.

    Congratulations, bijukvr, Angel, and Ashley!!! What a way to start the weekend.

    I'll check back in tomorrow w/ my HPT results. Only symptom now is reflux - which I've only had when I was pg- so it's messing with my head and getting my hopes up.

    Happy Saturday!

  10. OK so I took a second test this afternoon. If there's a line it's so faint I can barely make it out. I was looking for reassurance, but now this has contradicted the first one. Granted, the first was done with FMU and this afternoon's wasn't, but now I'm freaking out. I did a different brand but I think it still has a low sensitivity, and that's the part that's freaking me out. My beta is tomorrow--if it's not at 25 then that's not good.

    Any thoughts?? My poor DH, he had told me NOT to test again, to just be in the moment and I didn't listen to him. I don't even want to tell him.

    EDITED to update: So the second test was Accuclear. According to that has a sensitivity of 50. The one I did this morning; 25. So maybe that's the difference. So maybe my beta tomorrow isn't going to be very strong...I just don't know. I guess there's still a few hours for it to go up

  11. Whoo Hooo!! Congrats bijukvr!! This is a lucky day!!

    Ashley...don\'t stress out. I think you are totally right with the sensitivity of the the test plus not using FMU. GL tomorrow!!

    Ziggy...Reflux is a good symptom!!!!
    good luck and let us know how it goes. I am praying for you!

  12. Good luck for your beta Ziggy - let's make it 4/4!

    Ashley and Angel, if you test again tomorrow, fingers crossed for darker lines.... I'm going to give it 2 days and see. Counting down til my beta - Friday seems sooo far away!

  13. Becca, Angel and Ashley!! YIPPEE< WAY TO GO! YES!!
    That was my version of a baby dance!
    A line is a line is a line.

    Congrats and I cant wait to hear your official numbers!
    AFM, I am too scared to face the music. I have 1 test and actually got tempted as I was reading but do not feel optimistic. For now, I will be happy for all of you


  14. Hi ladies

    This board is so exciting! I am also a little later than most of you - I am having my beta on Friday - 27th. Good luck to all of you having it tomorrow!!!

    This is the most awful waiting time ever - every single thing my body does I think is a symptom or sign. I am torn between huge optimism and being certain that it hasn't worked.

    You are all so brave doing your POAS - that chart is great though, I think I am going to try to hold out until 6dpet.

  15. Hi Ladies,

    I did POAS, but after I saw the BFN, I realized it's FR1, and not FRER. I checked on, and FR1 only detects HCG>100. Why do they even sell those???

    So I'm not really sure if I want to bother buying another HPT, or just wait for the call tomorrow. You should have seen how reluctantly I did this one. I think I'll just wait.

    Ugh. Obviously was hoping to post good news this AM!
    Happy Sunday,

    p.s. Jo - welcome! I think mark_H might have the same beta date as u. Good luck!

  16. Ohh Ziggy why do they even sell those???!!!
    I am sorry it was negative anyway..BUT you can't go by it!!

    Welcome Jo..this is such torture. Did you do a 3 or 5dt?

  17. I'm out.
    My beta was 9.

    I do not even know how an HPT can detect this.

    I'm beyond devastated. I am numb and broken and want to crawl into some place deep and dark and never come back out. Five IVFS, nearly 80,000 dollars spent, and the only time I see two lines is for this. Why in the hell would they recommend I keep taking my meds and re-test on Tuesday? That seems cruel to me.

  18. Ashley, I'm so sorry. I looked on, and there have been cases of it working out with low betas, although rare. It is worth it to take your doctor's advice, and see what happens on Tuesday. I don't know what else to say besides I'm so sorry you are going through this. It just isn't fair.

    Please try to take care of yourself. Big, huge hugs.

  19. Ashely
    I don't know what to say either. I am so sorry! I agree with ziggy, take the meds and see what tuesday brings.
    Many Hugs!

  20. Ashley, I'm so sorry you got such a low number, it really is cruel - I have been there too. Try to hang in there - I pray that your embryo was just a late implanter, that's why you have to keep going on the meds.... you have to give that little one a good chance.

    Hi Jo- we have the same beta day! What day are you planning on doing your HPT?

    Well I'm going to doing another HPT tomorrow and hopefully the line will be darker, which will mean things are going in the right direction. But strangely my body is already changing which is making me feel really encouraged.

  21. Thanks for all your welcomes girls.

    Becca - I discussed it with my DH and he really doesn't want me to do a HPT as he doesn't want us to have any false hope - he likes to deal in facts (MEN), so I'm going to start this week by respecting his wishes and I can already see myself caving around Wednesday!!

    I am still trying to convince myself that there are signs but really I just have the occasional sore ovary twinge. I think everything else comes from not exercising for the last three weeks!

    Ashley - I'm really sorry too. And agree with all the other ladies to keep on with the meds. What else can you do? My thoughts are with you.

    Jo x

  22. May I join in? I had a 2 embryo transfer (it was a 5 day transfer of a morula and early morula) on Tuesday the 17th and I feel like I am losing my mind!! This waiting is driving me absolutely crazy! This is my 3rd and last fresh cycle. I did a hpt 3dpt and it was negative! I did another 5 dpt and it too was negative. Now I see on a previous posting that it wouldn't even be secreting any hcg to be detected!! My beta is to be drawn on the 25th (my birthday!!!) I am going luney and having cramps and am tired ALL the time.
    Sorry for the ranting!!! COuld I join in??

  23. Hi Ladies,

    Got the call to stop all meds today. I POAS yest and today w/ EPT, so I had the heads up. Not sure yet if we will cycle again, but surprisingly I'm leaning toward one more try. I just don't want to have any regrets.

    Angel - Have you gotten your results yet?

    Best of luck to everybody,

  24. Ziggy I'm really really sorry.

  25. Ziggy- Oh I am so sorry for you! I hope you decide to cycle again! How many have you done?

    Well, my beta came back at 732

    My beta with my dd was 595, and was singleton. Next apt next monday. More waiting.
