I scheduled a consultation appt with Dr. Shamma at IVF Michigan for Oct 29th and I'm calling tomorrow to set up a consultation with Reproductive Medicine Associates of Michigan (Dr. Richard Scott is the practice director...thoughts on that?): IVF Success Rates - Compare National IVF Fertility Success Rate Data Top IVF Clinics

In the meantime I requested adding follistim (to Femara) my next cycle and my RE agreed. The protocol involves an AFC so I didn't have to request it specifically.

Still hoping for the best this cycle...testing on Monday (yeah, right, lol, I'll cave and test tomorrow because I'm ridiculous like that ).

Thanks Melissa ♥!!

LOL, "test early and often"...my sentiments exactly !

I used a frer this morning and bfn but I expected that...9dpo is pretty early. At least I know the trigger is out and any lines after this will be the real deal *fx.

I had a bfp at 9dpo in March but started bleeding/cramping at 10dpo and ended up with methotrexate at 9wks for suspected ectopic. I also had a cp in Feb so really hoping for a better outcome this time .

I know you are new, Kelly, so you might not know about our unwritten rule here, but you have to POST PICS of your pee sticks Those of us not peeing on sticks right now need to live vicariously through you, ha ha!

Yes, I hope you have a much, much better outcome this time and that you can cancel those consults you have set up

I'm only 9dpo and I didn't really test out the trigger. I did take a test (88cent cheapie) at 6dptrigger (7dpo) and it was faintly + so I'm not sure if it's still in my system or not. I was well-intentioned and planned on waiting until 14dpo...silly me .

I just wanted to wish you good luck and I really hope you get your BFP so you can cancel the appointments you made I couldn't resist testing early this cycle either and I got 3 BFN's so decided to just wait for af to show.

I hope to see a blaring positive from you soon!!

Sending baby your way!

Talking about anyone in particular? I know I have a favorite POAS convert. I don't want to name names, but it starts with a Gr and ends with an etchen

Hi Kelly! The peer pressure to POAS on this board can make the most anti-POASer do it! Hoping to see a bfp for you soon! And good for you for taking charge of your journey!!!!

Well, today's tests weren't very encouraging but staying hopeful

Yesterday's 88cent cheapie (10dpo/11dptr)....darker than the day before, yaay: http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...ncy-test187724

Today's (11dpo/12dptr)...kinda disappointing: http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...ncy-test187414

Yesterday's frer...pic isn't the greatest but it did dry totally pink, woot:http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...ncy-test187417

Today's frer...looks darker in the pic but about the same as yesterday's: http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...ncy-test187721

My fmu was even less diluted today...I was feeling pretty optimistic but my results were, meh.

The good news...I think I may be preggo, waaaaahoooooooooo !!!! One hurdle down and one big one to go ☆★☆★☆★☆Stick stick stick★☆★☆★☆!!!!!

I couldn't post yesterday since we took a trip up north for the day but I did poas. I'll take a pic and post it a bit later . And gaaaah, no hpts left to poas this morning ...how did I let this happen??? Solution: save my fmu and dip it later ...pics to come

I'm 13dpo and af is due today but I don't usually start until I stop the progesterone. My test yesterday (12dpo) wasn't any darker at all than my test at 10dpo and both lines were pretty faint but they are pink.

Anyone have experience with the trigger? Is it possible this is still from that hcg? I had a bfn frer at 8dpo but my pee was pretty diluted and my lines have barely changed at all since 9dpo .

Tomorrow is my "official" test day but hoping to see something pretty today *fx!!

It can definitely take a while for the lines to get noticeably darker. And you might try SMU...that was always my darkest test!

Can't wait to see those tests...better buy several boxes, LOL!
