Well I tested this morning and 2 lines came up straight away. I'm 9dp3dt or 12dpo. Not getting excited yet as I've been here before - more than once I'm afraid. BT not until Tuesday.

Hi Everyone. I would like to join in your forum.

I had a stillborn Sept 2010 from a natural conception and then an early miscarriage in Dec 2011 also from a natural conception.

Since then no results so since I am 41 FS recommended we try IVF in January 2013. We did an antagonist cycle with 4 eggs collected but 2 did not fertilise, 1 fertilised abnormally and 1 fertilised. However when I turned up for my transfer it was cxl as the embryo had not progressed...heartbreaking.


So we have had a break for a month, lots of acupunture and tomorrow I start a a long down reg cycle with Lucrin to see if this produces different results. We will also add ICSI into the equation and growth hormone to support the quality and quantity of eggs.


Has anyone used growth hormone?

Nice to meet you all

Welcome Fleur - I am really sorry to hear of your struggles and losses so far. I haven't used a growth hormone so cant help. Good luck with your up and coming cycle.

AFM, OMG, I am in shock!!!!! ohmy.gif
After getting very strong  BFP.gif  at home, I went in a day early for bloods. I've just got the results back;

HCG: 887
Progesterone: 24

I'm 13dp3dt or 16dpo.

Does 887 seem very high to anyone else or is it just me?

Now the wait until we see if doubles nicely. Oh I really hope this is the one.  hands.gif

Hi my old friends (and some new ones), just popping by to see how you are all going.
Countrymel, I am so sorry. I am sending you a huge hug of sympathy. Hope you're getting lots of tlc. This whole thing SUKS!
Libra, hope you're going okay this year.
Meggs and the old Senecio and any of the other long earlier haulers popping by, hope life is treating you well.
Hi newbies, hope your journey is a bit easier with this lovely bunch of ladies to be with.
Dh and I are now in WA and our embies are all at a clinic in Thailand. Our surrogacy journey starts next month! Very happy. Back to a good weight and level of fitness, nice to be able to focus on dh and me for a change. Giving our embies the best shot we can.

Hi Ladies,

It looks like my stay in here was short and sweet! I had my second bloodtest yesterday and my HCG levels were 9300  biggrin.gif  

That's a doubling time of 35 hours! We are so pleased but still very anxious.

I'll continue to read this thread and hope you all get some positive news soon.
