  1. Ladies,

    The HPT this morning came negative. I called the nurse and she told me that since I ovulated late this month(day21), that could be one of the reasons for a late period. She also said I shd be getting ready to get my AF in the next couple of days. I really admire her confidence... I am already having weird feeling in my stomach unfortunately. ...I feel like my AF is just around the corner. Oh well at least I can start my BCP's. My mom&dad are coming in January to be with me. I am really looking fwd to it. It would be such a great emotional support to me.

    Lotsa hugs to all of you for being sooo nice to me

  5. Hopping on to say hello and note that our insurance will cover a second attempt! Last month's BFN was such a bummer.

    We meet with our RE on January 13. I have already, per my nurse, started back on bcp\'s.

    Can\'t wait to get a calendar and a new cycle buddy group. Hopefully we can transfer in February!

  6. Just stopping in to say HI! I had my first OB appt and it went great, I am measuring right on target for 9 weeks, my next u/s will be April 2nd. Heard the heartbeat, it was 184. It was amazing. I hope all of you are doing good. HUGS to everyone!

  7. Hi Ladies!!

    Happy New Year!!

    This Monday i will be 11 weeks and my appointment with my OB went well we heard the heartbeat he didnt have to do an internal (that was nice)!!!

    I have to go through some extra bloodwork and another type of ultrasound to have the thickness in the back of the neck measured. I just turned 35. I guess they come up with a percentage and then let you know if you should have an amnio. I really dont want to think about that though.

    Waiting you are feeling good? No nausea at all?? Lucky girl! Mine still comes and goes but its not too bad. I think i had my last acupuncture appointment for it since i am almost 12 weeks.

    Have a good night everyone here in CT we are getting loads of SNOW!!!

  8. Unfortunately we are not going to be able to afford another cycle afterall. There is just not enough insurance funds left. Dr. Rod was not offering any free cycles when we went in for our last consult on Tuesday. I know the doctor wanted to do another cycle and we were emotionally ready as well. We just cannot afford one penny out of pocket and I applaude those who can.

    I am sad but keep thinking that I do have a wonderful six year old and how lucky I am to be his mommy. We adopted him at birth. I cut his cord and was the first to hold him. He keeps me on my toes and I am sure that he will need everything I have to offer him, and then some.

    Wishing you all the very best!

  9. Hi Cyndie i am so to hear about that these cycles are so expensive we were fortunate enough to have insurance pay for it.

    Have you done any acupuncture? I would search for a Chinese acupuncturist that has a good reputation. My naturopath rx this guy to me here in CT and he is helping women get PG that were once told they would be able to!!

    Its a thought i really think that there is something amazing behind all of that.

  10. Just wanted to say hello, hope all of you are doing good I cant believe I will be 11 weeks tomorrow. Its so exciting!!

    HUGS to all of you!

  18. OMG, Congratulations Kitty! Great news. Way to start the new year. I can't wait to see your Beta numbers. Wishing you the very best!

    Itsme, thank you so much for thinking of me! That means a lot to me. I still check the boards once in a while. I will PM you if you turn your PM on.

  19. Hi Pumkin,

    Great to hear form you...I do think a lot about you...Somehow you made a special place in my heart...? i'll try and get that on...

  20. Kitty! Yahoooo Congratulations! Wonderful news let us know how your bloodwork goes.

  21. beta was 47 yesterday. (12dp retrieval)
    The nurse said that it is low.. they want it up around 100.
    We will do a repeat beta tomorrow.

    I'm not worried. The test was originally scheduled for friday, and they called to move it up.. (probably because on the cycle in November AF came at 12dp retrieval)

    I bet it will be over 100 tomorrow.

  22. Hello, any ladies that are still around! I was here in Nov./Dec and had a very low beta that turned out to be a chemical. I am doing stims right now for IVF#2 and am starting to obsess.

    Kitty - congrats! A 47 at only 12dpo is actually just fine! I believe the 100 they are looking for would be at 14dpo, and if you double, you're there. I bet the nurse was just spouting what she's been told instead of paying attention to how many days past retrieval you were. Good luck!

  23. Itsme, I sent you a Private Message, check and see if you can access it.

    Hello to all the girls! I hope you are all doing well.

    Lori, good luck!

  24. oops! I forgot to update on friday.. Beta went from 47 to 125, right where it should be! Due date Oct. 9.

  25. Kitty good for you when is your ultrasound scheduled?
