I know I am new here, or at least don't post often, and I debated on posting this just because I know it can suck to hear, but I wanted to assure people to stay positive! I had my blood test done this morning, and it was...positive! So IVF really worked for me! I still have to go back monday for another blood test to make sure things are moving along, but I can't believe it. I was one of those people who was sure it just wasn't meant to be, and I have been telling people all week that I didn't think it worked, because I literally feel completely normal, with the exception of occasional cramps. Its so weird. I had a minor panic attack, I think because since it has been so long I just never thought it would happen, but I am good now...I think! She told me my level was 85....does anyone know if this is good? I was actually sleeping when she called....

Thank you all! You think the stress will decrease a little after you get the positive, but it doesn't! I had my retrieval on 2/10, the transfer on 2/13. I got the positive blood test on 2/26. Everything I read says it should be between 5 and like 426....huge range! So being on the lower end makes me nervous. I go back tomorrow though. For anyone who is pregnant, based on online calculators this would make me 4 weeks and 2 days....should I be having cramping right now, and if so how bad? This next 4 weeks at least is going to be torturous I believe! But thank you and congrats/good luck to all of you too!

first off, cramping is normal. No one tells you that. Some one should have let us all know that. Second on the numbers, don't worry so much about the actual number, just keep an eye on them going up.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah, well....I had a m/c. I feel like they are dragging it out though....they want me to stay on the progesterone just to make sure....but the amount of blood I had there is no possible way I am still pregnant, especially with the huge blood clots I had. Now I have to go back on friday to make sure my levels are dropping. It was 265 on monday and 299 this morning, but I only started really bleeding about an hour before they tested. I am just so angry....and I don't know if we are doing this again. And it makes me angry that I don't even get to see the dr for 2-3 weeks because they need to review our case to make decisions on what to do next, and they only review once a week. This just really sucks. It is really so much easier betting BFNs every month than allowing yourself to get excited only to be let down again.
