Leah - I did bcp for 12 days, then stopped and got AF. Went on CD2 for b/w and u/s, then started estrogen shots on cd3. Estrogen shots were every three days. Went again on CD10 for lining check and started PIO shots on CD11. Transfer was on CD16. I can't wait for your FET! Don't stress yourself over it. That will only make things worse. Just keep calm and relax. There is nothing you can do after the transfer (I know that sounds bad). Everything will be fine... just have faith! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Mandy - can't wait to hear an update on your level check today! Hope all is well!

Sarah - glad you can move forward with this cycle, and I hope you don't run into anymore obstacles. Keep my fingers crossed!

Tina - did you get your fert report yet?

Jennifer - I'm stalking you! I hope you have an update soon!!!

Hey Girls. Got the call from my nurse. She said my bloodwork came back good. She didn't tell me numbers, but she did tell me that we have one Day-6 embryo frozen. I'm hoping I'm pregnant now and the other embryo becomes a sibling in a year or so!!!!

Tina...we are all dying to hear your fert report!!!!

Feeling disheartened today! Got my fertilization report today and am now in the game of wait and see...we ended up with 13 eggs, one of which did not survive. Only two were actually mature at the time of retrieval. Five more matured during the day yesterday. They ICSI'd all 7 of those and two did not survive. Only one of those is showing signs of fertilization right now. The others were done pretty late in the day so they are watching them.

5 more eggs matured overnight so they got ICSI'd today.

Just praying that they all do what they are supposed to!

Hope everyone is doing good! I love reading everyones progress!!

Tina, sending you good thoughts!! Stay positive!! =)

I had a quick question. I went to the doc today and did another US and BW, the nurse just called and upped my dosage, again, and said instead of giving the shot in my stomach do it in the back of the arm. Has anyone done this before? I feel like this is going to hurt! And I am not exactly sure on where to do this, she told me but I am scared I will do it in the wrong spot!

The nurse just called and my beat is 761 at 10dp5dt. I have waited all day by the phone, but it was worth it.

Tina, I'm sorry things aren't going smooth right now, but you have a lot of eggs to work with. Stay positive and know that I'm praying for you.

Mandy, Congrats....that is great news!!

I hope everything else is having a great day.

1st OMG Jennifer....it's SO twins! LMAO...my beta was 72 with Mallory at 11dp3dt. and only 50ish for this m/c....that is a GREAT, STRONG number girl!!!

Mandy, yayyyyy for a frostie!

Tinalou...you're looking good. I only retrieved 4 eggs TOTAL with Mallory, 3 fertilized, 2 transferred and 1 perfect daughter...it's my 4-3-2-1 plan and you have WAY more than that Everything crossed for you!

Sarah, yay for proceeding with your cycle!

Cassandra, thanks for being such an awesome cheerleader

Brooke, it is very common for them to change the meds/dosages...that is part of why the monitor you with bloodwork so closely...so that everything goes well - I have heard of doing it in the arm before...but I'm not sure the reasoning except for the stomach getting too sore. You can do it

WHOA JENNIFER!!!! THAT'S AN AWESOME BETA!!! So excited for you..Congrats. Did you feel anything during the implantation time? I'm trying not to read into every little twinge.

Tina...your feet report sounds good so far. You only need one to make a perfect little baby. I'm happy for you.

My beta is July 10. I bought 3 hpts to take (probably starting Sun). I hate hpts bc I've never seen a +. I know I need to prepare myself bc I'll get the call at work.

Thanks Leah and Mandy.. My husband wanted twins from the beginning. He is already talking about trading our SUV in for a van. I told him to slow down,lol. I'm excited, but I'm still having a hard time letting go of my loss, and I'm scared...if that makes sense.

Mandy, I had some pretty strong cramps Sunday that lasted for 5 minutes or so. Then, I was doing my walk on Monday and felt a few sharp pains very low. I thought it might have been from me over doing it, but other than that, I've not really had any pains. I'm guessing with my high hcg levels that implantation happened early. I'm praying for you.

Jennifer so excited to see such great numbers.

Tina you still have several to work with. I know it's hard but its still hopeful. My first time I had 23 mature eggs and only 6 fertilize. I understand the disappointment.

Brooke it's completely normal to adjust meds mid cycle based on your response so far.

AFM my ultrasound looked good. The transfer is next Tuesday the 9th. Trying to secure a babysitter for leiland for the day now.

The growth in there is an adenoma. Don't know much other than there is nothing I can do to get rid of it but a hysterectomy and the Dr is comfortable continuing on. And so onward we go. My sister keeps swearing it will be twins and I told her to shut her mouth that I just want one.

Morning ladies! Sorry I've been MIA! Really long story short, DH and I put this cycle on hold when we had an opportunity to adopt a little angle from Mexico. Story even shorter, it didn't work and agencies want $40,000 from us for adoption! So we will be back on track with our FET for August cycle. Dah! I really hate disappointment! And waiting! Happy 4th everyone!

Shana that's crazy. Adoption is so pricey which is why we are doing ivf. My four cycles are less than an adoption.

Heading to the city this evening, for a 3 day transfer of our one growing embryo early tomorrow. We are going to spend a relaxing evening just focusing on us!! None of the others eggs fertilized. After a lot of tears today we have turned it into God's hands. It is His plan whether we understand it or not.

I lived on this board 2 years ago when we were ttc#2 through IVF for the first time DS#1 is an IUI baby

We ended up with twins our first round, with a beta around 416 I think? So Jennifer, lol I think it's safe to say you can expect to see two beautiful beans in a few weeks atleast don't be surprised haha.

We just got our calendar for our first FET!
We will be just transferring one this time, and it is set to happen on oct 31st Halloween. Which is exactly 2 years after they were conceived ( my retrieval fell on Halloween)

Hoping you all have graduated by the time I come to join you full time

I'm on b/c now and will be doing the preliminary testing next month to make sure all is still okay in my oven

Tina, that is great news!!!!! I read your post last night and you have been in my thoughts and prayers A LOT. I'm keeping you there and waiting on your good news.

Mandy, your tww is killing me,lol. You are in my prayers and thoughts too.

AFM, My clinic is not ordering anymore blood work for me, and our ultrasound is July 18th. I wish they would check my beta a few more times just to make sure everything is progressing. The 18th is so far away. On another note, this pregnancy has me hating sweets.....very weird.
