Testing Wed here. Can't POAS as had HCG boosters and too scared of false positive. I'm prepared myself for a negative and I'm more worried about trying to wangle an appt before Xmas so I can cycle again in Jan rather than waiting til feb.

Good Luck for this month ladies I hope you all get your christmas bfp's

Milano I am thrilled for you, your hcg is great. As long as it is doubling and doing the right thing that way is all that matters. At 16dpo with DD hcg for me was only 82. I have noticed for em that my hcg is slow to get started but doubles and triples really well, all to do with your own body so you may well be the same. Congratulations  eexcite.gif

Hi all,

Got my 2nd Beta HCG results today and I'm nervous to say the least. They are rising, but so slowly. I hate the waiting around that is involved, I just want to know what's going on!!!

15dpo - 65
20dpo - 164

Sorry for the 'me' post. Hope everyone is well.

Hi All

Finally I had a chance to sit on my computer after my transfer which was on the 14th December.  My blood test due on Monday.  Which seem so early this time.  

Feeling so nervous now and I guess I didn't want to think to much about the transfer.  After doing over 12 cycle I am starting to feel over it now.

I'm praying that this time around I have a little miracle and is wanting to come home to us!

Im not sure who is on the two week wait. Hoping and praying that we all have a beautiful gift of life.

I'm not testing till 25 or 26 Dec. Trying to make up my mind which would be better. If i test on Christmas morning and get a BFP that would be amzing but what if I get the B F N? I am not sure that I wouldbe able to cope well all day happy. Any thoughts?

Estherfrog, I tested boxing day last year. Would not want to do it xmas day as you don't want to spoil the day. You will be distracted doing family stuff, so one more day wont hurt.

Good luck to the last few in the December 2WW.

Hi all,
I am doing IUI and I am just on my first cycle. So this is my first 2ww I can't test on the 3rd of Jan. I am hoping that the time over Xmas goes a bit quicker than the last couple of days.  Look forward to hearing some success stories my fingers are crossed for everyone. original.gif
