Did anyone get a rash with the PIO shots? I'm trying to figure out if this rash on my neck is the PIO or the herbs from the acupuncturist. My acu gal says it's nothing different from what she's given me before...??? Just when it gets warm and I want to wear a nice open blouse, ick!!

Leah those beta's look awesome! When can they tell if it's twins or one?

Tamara - I am starting to get a rash now on my rear end that itches on the knots from the PIO. The first week I was fine just had the knots and then a siatic nerve issue that lasted a day. Now though - complete itchy rash just on the site. I am using some cream to help the itch. Wondering though if it's going to get worse for me.

So your rash is on your neck?

They won't be able to determine twins until the first ultrasound

Rashes/welts...I had welts from the PIO are exacerbated by heat...so do not put heat on the injection site and it should help. I had that happen last time and I stopped putting the heating pad on it (acupuncturist told me that and she was right) It totally went away. It could be an allergic reaction...mine started about 2 weeks after taking it, so I didn't think it was that. The RE said if it got worse, we could switch to another type of progesterone.

Tamara, I don't think a rash on your neck would be from PIO...it's usually at injection site... My acup and RE told me to stop taking chinese meds while going through IVF...did your clinic suggest otherwise?

Hi ladies! Just wanted to pop in and say congrats to everyone on the BFPs! Sorry I'm not doing personals... I've been following here and there, but there's so much action here it's hard to do personals! I'm so happy for all of you and prayin you all have a healthy pregnancy!

Gretchen - good luck to you! When is your beta?

AFM- I posted in the May FET thread, but... I have my FET date of May 16. I take my last BCP next Thursday, so I should expect my pre-med baseline by April 29. Yay!!! I so excited and hope that all works out this time :-)

Gretchen, some girls get better tests at night, some fmu.....and hydration plays a huge roll...go to my thread in ttcma and look at my second to last photo...taken same morning 1 hour apart....it's crazy how much darker it is in just an hour.

It's early and a line is a line. Mine go back and forth too. Stay positive!

Was wondering when you'd notice my new title hahahaaaa

Hi Kayakr & Leah,
I've actually been icing the spot where I get the shots--PIO or the other hormone & trigger shots...and I've yet to have a mark/welt/rash on my belly OR butt, so I was really surprised to have a rash on my neck. I see my regular acupuncturist tomorrow. Hopefully she can tell me what's goin on. Of course my mind is running, thinking....is this a sign of a BFP?

Kayakr - Congrats!!! And when did you start POAS? (hee, hee- I'm wondering when I can start!)

Keep up the good numbers ladies!

I POAS at 5dp5dt because I was crampy like AF was coming. There was barley a line there but there was one. I have NEVER seen a second line. Today at 7dp5dt or 12dpo it looks like this.



I am going to use ice on my bum and stay away from the heat. These welts are BAD. When I am laying on my back. I feel like I have to bags of marbles that i am laying on.

Hi girls -- been lurking around watching all of those beautiful BFP's!! (Yay, Gretchen, Leah & the others I missed!!) Sooo exhausted so I will skip personals, but I am pulling for each of you!

AFM: had my 2nd ultrasound today - was able to see & hear the beautiful heartbeat! such an amazing thing!! RE said that I have a bleed near my cervix, that may or may not come out... but that it was fairly common. Anyone else have this? I'm on even more restricted activities... basically, its to bed or the couch I go after work (where, fortunately I am able to sit)... looks like DH is going to have to start doing the dishes & laundry (he already sweeps/vacuums for me!)

GL to everyone else!
