Boo Leah - I'm so sorry!

Loyal - Congrats on the positive Beta results! FX for doubled numbers

Lucy - Don't be too surprised when the ultrasound shows a few black dots that's a good sign the more the better!

Neji - Good luck with ER! You'll wake up afterwards and not remember a thing. It's the best sleep ever. Keep us updated!

AFM - I actually had my ultrasound today and we are carrying 1 soccer player. Dr thinks because of my PCOS my hCG was high, Because when they checked my corpus luteum - which at the time of ovulation I only had 1 follicle that was to release an egg and then it becomes the cl. But instead of just one, we found THREE - Woot woot! So it's actually really good. My body is doing things now that it should and carrying the pregnancy well. I measured 6w3d. Which when we walked in the Dr said I should be 6w4d from my transfer day. It's so hard to calculate when you do a FET. But things looked wonderful. Baby's heart rate was 117. Amazing! I thought I would never see the day! I wanted to cry, but I didn't.... But I may at our next appointment Which is Sept 25th. I'll be 9w3d. It didn't hit me until we were in the car on the way home. I finally have a peanut in my belly and it's alive and growing! What an amazing feeling! Truly a miracle! We are going to be parents!! My due date will be April 27, 2013 which is the day after DH's birthday. He's super excited about that. But wow, just wow!

Just a really quick update. Retrieval went well. They got 16 eggs. They'll call me tomorrow afternoon to let me know how many fertilized. I'm going to go shutdown now and restart when the pain goes away.

Yeah Neji that's a great retrieval! Update us as soon as you know how it goes with the fertilization. Are you doing ICSI?

Hi all! I'm feeling much better. Leah I hope you are feeling better, too. Stomach flu is a nightmare! Hopefully after this things will start going much better for you.

Diego, congrats to you! Must have felt so great to see the heartbeat!

Loyal, what a great beta! I hope the next beta is a number that can put your mind at ease.

Lucy, woot woot! Trucking along very nicely.

Like I said at the beginning of the post, I'm feeling much much better today. Yesterday I was in so much pain! It was more than just a little bit of cramping. It felt like I had a heavy ball with spikes on it rolling around. Today there is still pain, but not nearly as bad as yesterday. I'm still going to take it easy today. Waiting until this afternoon for the report is going to kill me!

Congrats on the numbers! Those are great. Good luck with your ultrasound!

I got my report a little while ago. 11 fertilized!!! They will call me tomorrow and let me know if we will do a day three or day five transfer. If it turns out to be day three it means things have gone terribly wrong with the embryos.

Neji..it doesn't mean things have gone wrong...My daughter is a 3dt...it just means they might be able to guess which are stronger...andthere are studies saying the uterus is the best place for the embryos...some clinics want them back asap...while others wait to day 5 to see which are strongest....best of luck either way...don't get too hung up on it. I got pg w both my 3dt's and not my 6's.....so anything is possible!!!

My last post came out totally wrong. I didn't mean to imply that three day transfers were bad! I don't think that at all. I forgot to mention that at my clinic, they prefer to do five day transfers so if you have enough embryos they will automatically wait until day five. That's what I meant by something went wrong between yesterday and today.
