Tamara- I have heard of that happening and still having a healthy bean! I haven't experienced it myself, but hoping for the best for you!!!!

Jill, after my transfer I did 3 days of bed rest. My mom and MIL took turns watching my 2 yr old. This time my mom is coming up and staying the night for 3 nights to watch the twins ( 1 yrs old) and my 3 (almost 4) yr old. Since this is my last transfer I want to do whatever it takes to give them the best chance.

Welcome April! I agree with Leah - if you really aren't having an u/s until 10/22, I'm afraid that might not be safe. They really need to see how you're responding sooner than that...

Jill - your embryos sound great! My beta is also on the 23rd!!

Tamara - I think you could definitely be fine, especially since you had two transferred.

AFM - We transferred one "good" expanded blastocyst. There was another just like it that was frozen today, and 4 more blastocysts and 4 early blastocysts that will be checked again tomorrow to see if they can be frozen. We had twice as many make it to blast as they expect (30%). We had a long wait at the clinic, first just because they were running behind, then because a patient passed out in the bathroom. We were there for over 3 hours! But, transfer went great, and that's what matters. I had my E2 and P4 checked today, and will be repeating those weekly. E2 was 1330 (they want over 200), and P4 was 43.8 (want over 20). No reason for our embryo baby not to implant!

Oh, and the Miralax worked!

Is it just me or is anyone else excited to start seeing hpts??? Is anyone testing???? Soon? I love the squinters!!

Who will test? I am a POASaholic. I have over 100 tests hahaha. It's sad, but true! I have about 90 wondfo type tests, 7 FRER, 3CBE, 1 CBE digital and 8 of this random crappy generic midstream tests.....lol

Will any of you test out your trigger? What DPT or DPO equivalent will you test?

If you aren't a tester, why?? LOL (OH, did I mention, I'm a POAS Pusher and Converter too?) HAHAHAA

Tamara, this happened to a girl on the main TTCMA board recently and all is fine! Praying your numbers jump as well ((HUGS))...it's going up, that is all that matters!

We haven't decided on testing yet, but I think we're leaning toward not...I have a ton of tests, and always tested before, but I never really thought I had a chance then, ya know? When do people start testing in IVF cycles? I've never taken a trigger shot before, so not sure how that timing works.

Four more of our blasts were good enough to freeze today, so we have 5 total frozen!

Jenny! That's awesome re frosties!

I test the trigger shot out - each morning, so that I know it's not the trigger by 3dp5dt...or equivalent, my trigger has always been gone and my tests blank, then I know if I get a positive, it's real......and I've gotten positives at 4dp5dt (or for me 6dp3dt).

If I hadn't tested out the trigger, I would have for certain thought it was still leftover from the shot, as it was THAT faint.

If you aren't going to test the trigger out, I'd say that 7dp5dt is a good day to start testing Most women get positives between 6-9dp5dt...YAY good luck (if and when you decide to tests....I could never wait until beta!

PS - Everyone...what will your due date be??

Mine would be July 22nd if my retrieval is on the 29th

I will test early

I got my positive with Ronan 10 dpo ( IUI cycle)
And with the twins I saw it ( very faint) 3 dp 5 dt. And no squinter 5 dp 5dt.

I will probably start testing around 3 dpt again although.... Do you get a trigger shot for a FET??? Wil I even have a trigger to test out?

HopingForBaby214-thank you for the encouragement

JillK-sticky thoughts coming your way!

*Melissa* & tandj ttc- thank you for the warm welcome <3

Luh-Luh 2012- thanks for the hope! I need it x 2

stillwaiting & JennyLee- no Lupron. I am super concerned with my clinic :/

well Mommies & Future Mommies- our nurse that was assigned to us has been out for a week. we had questions on the instruction sheet given to us by our doctor. we found out that we started our meds too soon. it said to start the injections on cycle day 3. it was not explained that there would be a 2nd cycle day 3. so that means the money we spent on the drugs was all for nothing! I am so upset & had a good cry. the doctor was actually snickering when she walked in. I want to write her a letter regarding her bedside manner, but I don't like confrontation. anyhow, we are starting progesterone pills for 10 days, then more bc then a second round of injections meds. it looks like we are now in the nov cycle.

I am wishing all of you beautiful follicles & super sticky embryo/uteruses

April - that makes a lot more sense with the dates you gave. Make sure you ask any questions you have and that they answer them to your satisfaction - you really need to understand all your instructions, and it's their responsibility to help you do so.

Well, I just took a cheapie, and I don't see anything. I only took 1500 IU of HCG, since I did dual trigger, so I bet it's gone. Oh, and my edd would be July 1st!

Hello- I'm new to this message board- or any message board for that matter.

I am on the 11th day of stim shots of my first IVF cycle. I was really hoping to trigger tonight, but they want me to go one more day. This change is making me miss parent teacher conferences this Thursday for my transfer, but it is what it is.

We have been trying for about a year and a half for #2. We conceived #1 naturally in about 6 months and they have found nothing wrong, but it is just not happening this time around.

I'm really hoping the IVF works. I think we will only be doing one round.

April!!! I am so so sorry!!!!! Don't leave us though! This is the Oct/NOVEMBER IVF thread, so hang around with us!

Jenny- it's good to know that the next line you see won't be mistaken for a trigger line, but ALLL BFP!!!!!!

Welcome CaliTeacher!!!! Can't wait to hear about your retrieval and fertilization report!

caliteacher, welcome!! I am a speech/language therapist who works in the schools and I am worried about missing important things too. It is hard to worry about these things and plan such a big thing like this around your work schedule and the rules for when you can take off!

April, I am a Nov FET so we may be close together. I should be starting my estrogen on day 3 of my cycle, which SHOULD be happening Oct 26ish... So from what I understand for my FET it's about 14 days of estrogen and 4 days progesterone then transfer (and progesterone continues). Does that sound right ladies who have done this?

Has anyone ever went an extra week or so on estrogen? I'm trying to time mine for a due date toward the middle/end of Aug so my RE said she can play with the estrogen and add another week of it.

Leah - I am not a POAS-er... I would be too afraid. I think with my last (first and only) IVF I did, but not sure if I will this time!

I have a good feeling about you JennyLee! My friend just did a frozen and had a morula (I think that may be a term for your 12 day) and she's preg!

I had a little red spotting this morning at 3dp3dt. There was also a long trail of clear mucous, not like from the progesterone. I am feeling worried.

I know that it is super, super early to do an hpt, but I did & it was negative..........so at least that tells me that the trigger shot is gone.

April...Im sooooo sorry...actually I would demand tbey reimburse you or supply meds for the ones you already used...and excuse me..but how rude of her to snicker coming in?!!! grrrrrr

My clinic gives us a sheet with the dates written on it so there is no confusion. I would be honest and say you are concerned because the odfice is so disorganized and instructions arenot clear...further..if a nurse is outfor a WEEK you should be assigned another one!
I def would push the reimbursement of meds. I'm sire they have some on hand...either leftovers other girls donated or extra for emergencies when meds can't be overnighted..that they could give you!

Jill spotting is very normal...hang in there!!!

caliteacher, welcome!!!!!!

Hi everyone! I have not been on this site... But this is what has been happening!
- I had my hysteroscopy (18 SEPT)
- Started taking Decapeptyl (14 days// shots in the arms)
- My period came Oct 1.
-Baseline U/S and Blood Work 2nd October... and 3.75 injection of Decpeptyl
-QUIET for a 10 days....
-Started Menopur injections (3 vials) 12 October... (In my thighs?)((7 days))
-I have my next appointment on the 19th to get a scan.
I feel like everyone has moved ahead and I am just waiting...
The waiting kills me! And does anyone else get hot flashes from their meds?
Jenny- I really like reading up on your process!

Jill I have a good feeling for you!!!! April, I completely agree with Leah about getting them to give you the meds. Snickering at you!? Ughhhh!!!! I would be livid!

I am very stressed. Has anyone ever done acupuncture? I have an appointment for tomorrow but now I have mixed feelings. Last thing I want is more needles. Anything anyone has done to destress? I spent this summer having a mastectomy and reconstruction for early stage breast cancer, barely felt like myself and went back to work in Aug. My mom is in limbo bc she is going through some issues and has cancer and I am concerned my stress level would play a part in any failure to conceive. Please send any suggestions for relaxing or improving the stress level, other than a vacation!
