  2. I'm on the 11th...Wishing you a good wait, and great news at the end of it.

  3. Hello girls, may I join you? I am with mtkhalil52, beta on March 11 but I am already on pins and needles. Does this ever get any easier? Wishing you girls all the best.

  4. Hi Ladies,
    Good Luck to you both on the 11th!!!! Will either of you POAS? Is this your 1st try?
    My info-
    I have PCOS, have a DD from my 1st IUI in Dec 06, so she is now 18 months. Tried in Jan with an IUI got a BFN, then had to sit out last month due to a cyst, so here I am trying IUI #2, and praying for a BFP.

  5. warning: m/c mentioned

    Hi Girls...Can I join too? I'm with Gina...my beta is on (lucky) Friday March 13th too.

    Here\'s my info:
    TTC #1 for 3 years. I just did my 7th (or is it 8 now?) IUI with injectables on Saturday. My last cycle was in Oct and I got my first ever BFP but it ended in miscarriage and has taken my body this long to get itself ready to cycle again. I have PCOS and high fsh.

    I don't normally poas but have been known to break down every now and then.

    Good luck to us all.

  6. Hi Ladies! May I join in to? My beta is also Friday the 13th!
    I just did a natural FET in which we transferred 2 six day blasts this past friday.

    GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE AND LOTS AND LOTS OF STICKING BABY DUST!

  7. Mine's on the 12th, can I join in? Also I have a question. I had my day 5 transfer yesterday, and I'm on 2 suppositories of progesterone in morning and 2 at night. When I went to the loo about an hour after putting the suppositories in this morning I noticed that one fell out and wasn't dissolved. I put another one in and now I'm worried that maybe I shouldn't have. Anyone have this happen to them? Hope I haven't messed this up.

  8. I am waiting too. Good luck to everyone. I go inon March 10. So close but so far away. I am cramping more than usual this time, this is my 3rd ivf, still terying for #1. Hoping the cramping is just my exta large ovaries. I also woke up with a slifht cold this morning. My DH had this last week. A little worried considering it is the 2ww. Has this happened to anyone before? Thanks! I hope the week flies by for us all!

  9. Hi girls,

    May I join you in the 2ww? I'm on 1st IVF/ICSI cycle, and beta is March 9. Rashel, I have a cold too, and I'm worrying about it as well. As if the waiting isn't stressful enough.

    Wishing you all a peaceful wait, and a great outcome.

  10. I'd love to wait with you ladies too! I'm on my 1st IVF/ICSI (5dt of two embies On Mon, 2.23). My beta is scheduled for Mon, 3.9 too.

    I broke down and POAS today ... BFN. I'm trying to stay positive.

    Sending positive thoughts to each of you! This 2WW is harder than anything so far!

  11. Suz, it's way to early to see a positive! This means nothing... Hold out for at least a few more days before trying again. Stay positive, or, I"m better with: cautiously optimistic.

    Nice to see everyone here...hope you're all faring okay. I had ET yesterday and forced myself to lie around all day, I'm already going insane, but more from feeling idle and shut in, lying in a tiny apartment loaded with boxes (we're in the process of moving...) I'll take it easy tomorrow and resume life Tuesday.

    Any thoughts on yoga? Would love to start up on wed...

  14. Hi Ladies

    May i join? I just had my FET today. I transfered two "perfectly intact" 8 cell embryo's as my RE says. It was a day 3 transfer.

    My beta isn't until March 17th, however provided the ugly POAS monster comes and i have a positive hpt i will go earlier for the beta.

    I hope everyone is feeling well!! I can't wait to hear about all the BFP's to come!!!

  15. mtkhalil52 – Thanks so much for your kind words. Although I kept telling myself it was too early, you have no idea how much it helps to have someone else on here put it in black and white! I’m going to work on being cautiously optimistic … I like that! Wishing you a restful few days … you’re going thru a lot right now with a move and this. Just take advantage of the down time and paper yourself.

    Gina – You’re fabulous to start a list for us! I’m updating to include Chastity and Amy … also the date for mine just got moved to Tuesday. Grrr … another day to wait!

    Chastity – My thoughts are with you. I know it’s a rough time, but remember that the Beta is much more sensitive than the HPT. If you look at the thread “When did you first see a BFP with a 3dt?” you will see that a lot of the women didn’t see a BFP until days 10 or 11. I bet some even after that. Don’t lose hope yet, hon!

    Amy – Welcome … looking forward to you keeping us company during the wait!

  16. Gina & Suz, thanks for starting and updating the list for us.

    Suz, You and I had our 5 day transfers on the same day! We are doing IVF/ICSI too and transferred 3 embies. As mtkhalil52 said, it's way too early to POAS. The only good thing about testing negative now is that you know the trigger shot is not detectable on your HPT anymore. When you see a positive now, you'll know it's the real deal and not a false +.

    Days 7/8/9 post 5 day transfer are the days you could start seeing positives, maybe even on 6dp5dt if you have a really sensitive test. I'm going to be POAS: Sat/Sun/Mon. I'm sorry you have to wait another day for your Beta.

    This has been posted several times elsewhere on the forum:

    This is what happens in a 5dt :
    -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 inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells &
    fetal cells
    6dpt...Placenta cells begin to secrete 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

    mtkhalil52, I hope resuming life on Tues. is less stressful than being among the boxes.

    Hang in there, everyone!

  17. Emine - Cannot tell you how much I am appreciating this thread and your response below. I got teary when I saw that our transfers were the same day. Just to know that someone has been going through the same ups and downs in the same timeframe means a lot!

    Yay for you that you had three good ones to transfer ... That is wonderful! Oh, I'm sending really positive thoughts your way that you get a BFP!

    We only had two embies on transfer day ... none left to freeze. You never know what you will get your first cycle, I assumed we'd have to pick the best ones for the transfer out of like 7 or 8 ... also thought that I would not feel so much pressure for the first time to work, thinking we would have embies left over for FET. LOL ... The thing I'm learning is to roll with the punches.

    I found an old thread about the best HPTs and apparently First Response Early Detection detects the lowest amounts of hormones by far. Of course, I stopped on the way home from work to buy some ... but I promise to be smart and wait until Fri/Sat/Sun to test again!

  18. Hi Ladies,
    Just checking in. Glad to see there are alot of us who can share our emotions here. I am praying we all have BFP on our different Beta days. rs.Polo you will start us off on the 5th!!! Tomorrow is the big day.

  19. can i join you? I have my beta on the 9th.

  20. So I am a day 3 transfer and I am sitting at 5days post transfer. Anyone out there have any symptoms. I was cramping and felt a lot of tightness and bloating but now not so much. Trying not to worry and remember that I could very well feel nothing at all for a while. Went for my follow up E2 today and will talk with a nurse about my feelings and go from there. Just staying positive.

  21. Welcome theodora fwtiou!!
    Good Luck tomorrow dieter

  22. I second that ... good luck tomorrow Chastity. We're sending hugs, positive thoughts, and sticky vibes your way. Hope you will keep us posted.

  23. Suz - How terrific and comforting to have found someone who is on the exact same timeline! The 2WW feels like an eternity - the days are dragging. I'm sure you've heard this before: but I'll say it again: it only takes one embryo! Learning to roll with the punches is real hard, but yes, it's the only choice we have right now. Resistance is futile. Let us know how you make out on the HPTs over the weekend. I'm on my 1st IVF/ICSI cycle too.

    Jeannie, Welcome! Awesome to have you join me with a beta on March 9.

    Amy, I'm glad you could join us.

    Rashel, you asked about symptoms. I had a terrible headache last night and started spotting and then bleeding today. It can't be good... Anyone else experiencing implantation bleeding? Is it lighter than your period? Please, help me out of my misery and worry.

    None of our transferred embies were of good quality, but I received a letter tonight saying one of the remaining 4 miraculously made it to freeze. I never thought I'd have a snowbaby. Quite the silver lining, as my clinics does free FETs for one year after a fresh cycle.

    Sending positive vibes to you all.
    -Heather

  24. Rashel, that's amazing! Congrats on the freezing...I found out my three didn't make it. I've also had a headache--not sure if you get them normally, but it's all the hormonal stuff. Hope that bleeding is from implantation!!!

    Chastity, best of luck tomorrow.

    I\'m taking it easy, not even doing yoga. Decided to wait for a few more days before doing much of anything.

    You hanging in there Suz? Have you tested again?
    And TTTang? are you testing?

    Hope everyone is hanging in there...
