Got my HCG done today - 53. Not as high as I was hoping for. Yes all my tests are FMU to compare from one day to the next, I try to keep them all the same time. I forgot to pick more up today though, so I don't have any for tomorrow. I have more I just have no idea where around here.

Sarah, you're still very early and that is a good number. I will pray that it continues to rise. Will they do a repeat?

AFM, Tomorrow is my ultrasound, and I've been so worried and nervous, but today, I have been very excited. It's so hard for me to believe that after so many years...I might finally be able to give my husband his own child. Please say a prayer for me that everything will go perfect. Thanks

We had our ultrasound this morning, and as of now, we have twins. I have a follow up ultrasound in two weeks, and we will know if they both made it. The doctor gave me a 50/50 chance on twins at this point. We were even able to see the heartbeat on one.

Good news Jennifer!! So fun that you got to hear the heartbeat!!

I went in this morning for the egg transfer. All went well! They showed me the pictures of the two embryos and they were perfect. =). I love them so much all ready!! My doctor put them in and we watched on the ultrasound screen and I cried when I saw them in there. I am so happy right now! Please pray little embryos snuggle in there and hold on tight. I have the pictures, I will try to upload them later. Just resting now. Doc said no activity for 3 days, just lay and sit up in bed or on the couch.

Today was awesome! I have such a good feeling. Please keep good thoughts that everything works for us. As I will continue and have been for all of you!!!!

Brooke, glad everything went great and hope they snuggle in tight. My doctor told me to go how and swim on the day of my transfer and stay active but not to strenuous.

Leah, here is the picture I promised.

Sarah, good luck tomorrow with the beta.

I hope everyone else is doing great too.

Hello ladies! So much has happened. So sorry I've behind on everything. Congrats to those who have BFP, so sorry for the BFN for those of you who received them. And GL to those who are waiting to find out which one you are!

AFM- I started my Femara today for my Frozen Embryo Transfer. We are scheduled for an ultrasound on the 29th and from there we will determine the transfer date. We right now have a tentative date of July 31st or August 1st, but we will see I had an ultrasound yesterday (day 2) to check and see whats going on. And they found two huge cysts on my left ovary BUT they did an estrogen test and found out they are just full of fluid and we are good to go ahead with this cycle. "when" we get pregnant we will be due a few day's after DH's birthday. He'll be 31 and he said that would be the best birthday present ever! LOL Fingers crossed! And good luck to those who are waiting to do their August cycles!

Sarah- did you have your second draw? Hoping for good news!

Brooke- that is so great! praying for your BFP!

Jennifer- that is amazing you got to hear the heartbeat. that is the golden day in my book.

At my clinic they do two betas, two days apart, but standard protocol is they won't tell me anything after the first one. I will get a call after the second one. I guess they don't want me to worry?

Trying to enjoy this weekend and not go crazy waiting and wondering and noticing every tiny feeling in my body! I decided to not POAS at all. Staying strong. First beta on Monday

Hope everyone is doing great!

So far this wait has gone by ok. I have never really had to be on bedrest before, well not where you cannot take anything to put you to sleep, that was hard to lay there for 3 days, I feel for anyone that has to go longer then that!! But I know it will all be worth every minute of it. =) I have one more week until my HCG Beta! Its going to be the longest week ever! =)

Congrats on the tentative dates Leah! I'll only be a few weeks behind you--cheering you on Chica!

Brooke, Shana, Jennifer & Sarah - Keep up the good work ladies!!

On a sad note, we have a little wren that's been nesting in our potted geranium on the back patio. She's been sitting on three beautiful eggs and this morning we found Momma gone from the nest and some of the geranium torn apart. We think maybe raccoons were trying to get at the bird/eggs. I can't help but feel for the Momma and I'm trying to keep from thinking about any bad omens. I hope she returns as she's been so diligent for the past two weeks!

Baby dust to all!

[QUOTE=stillwaiting;27536949]I had a busy weekend, sorry I haven't been around girls!!

Shana - best of luck! Why the Femara? I'm starting my FET soon too!

LEAH - My RE does a natural cycle FET. Femara, because I need to make sure I get a good lining and I need to have at least one follicle produced so that my body will continue to produce the HCG once "ovulation" has happened My body doesn't produce it by itself, and I don't ovulate on my own with out HCG - sometimes I don't even ovulate with the HCG trigger. of few of my many infertility blessings... I guess you can call them blessings LOL.

Good luck on your cycle!! You have everything planned out.

Sarah, I love that great sign

So, my Dr. last week said NOTHING about Lovenox...and today the coordinator called and we scheduled the FET...but she said nothing...except in an email after, she said "Oh i forgot to order your lovenox" ....my first miscarriage was a blighted ovum...and I have no known clotting disorder...does this seem right to you?

AND it's super expensive.....

I'm going to talk to them when I go for my baseline u/s and b/w next Tuesday...
