KAM77 - today is the last day of the month, lol! Are you going to test at home before your bloodtest? I always do, I'm impatient.

I had a 3 day transfer on Tuesday and bloodtest is not until 12/3 so still ages away. Will try and stay sane until then.

Hi Milano... I know, I introduced on Feb 2WW yesterday and it's all moving over here!
I cant remember what day it is anyhow. =)

I'm trying really hard not to test at home. I'm 5dp5dt. So well too early yet. It's my first IVF attempt and I'm sending myself nuts waiting. Patience was never my strong suit.

Good luck with the sanity!

HI Girls,


Hope your sanity is still intact. Mine is surprisingly.  I have had the only two people outside of my DH and me who know about our ivf call me in the last two days to find out if I know anything.
I've just said no, it's too early and your not helping bacause I am trying not to think about it. Haha.  Easier said than done.

Anyway this is me going back to NOT thinking about being pregnant wwhistle.gif  wwhistle.gif

Hi Ladies

Another day almost all the way through. Hope you had a lovely week and a nice relaxing ( biggrin.gif ) weekend ahead.

Hopelessromatic- People just dont stop do they!! haha I agree, I know they're being supportive but I'm doing all I can in the world to get to next Thursday!

Xanadoo You can do it! Ive hit the halfway mark today. Already I feel better at doing that!

Milano have you managed to stay away from the stick??

Be well xx

Thought i would come on and introduce myself. I am 28 y/o and been trying for nearly 2 1/2 years. Have had an ectopic and two early miscarriages and am currently on my third IVF cycle. I am doing natural thaw cycle and had my transfer last Saturday. Half way through the two week wait and currently going through the do i test or dont i. The wait until the blood test on Friday seems almost impossible. Last month i had a positive home test which resulted in a blood test which showed the HCG levels far too low. Looks like it implanted and then didnt survive. So i ask, is it better to wait (even though its extremely hard), or risk a repeat of last month (which was devestating) Good luck to all girls getting blood tests this week and all girls commencing the two week wait.

Hi ladies,

Xanadoo - you are testing about the same time as me. Seems ages away doesn't it. I'm trying to just put everything to the back of my mind for now. It's hard though! I love that you have been shopping as a distraction, might have to try that.  biggrin.gif

KAM77 - yes, have stayed away from the stick. I'm only 5dp3dt so it's way too early. I won't be able to test until the end of the week at the earliest. Not long for you though, fingers crossed.

hopeless romantic - oh I know how you feel. I wish no one knew about our cycles because it's added pressure. Only my immediate family know about this round but it's still pressure to keep them in the loop. I know they mean well and are supportive but I'd rather just be able to 'surprise' with them any news. Not going to happen though.

Pink1984 - hello and welcome. Sorry for your struggles so far. I think it's each to their own with at home testing. I've always tested because I'm impatient and I also like to prepare myself. Having said that, I've had 3 cycles with a positive test at home and I'm still yet to have a baby.  sad.gif

Stay sane ladies.

Hi girls, thought I'd pop in now. Having trigger tonight for EPU on Tuesday morning. Have been feeling pretty crappy with the injections this time round - not too sure why, as I'm on a lower dose - and my right ovary seems to have legged it.

Tuesday they found the ovary after some pushing on my stomach - but the u/s on Thursday and yesterday, they couldn't find it at all - so it's gone to hide out somewhere. Hopefully they'll be able to find it at EPU time.

#13 hopelessromantic

HI Girls,

Well I think I'm out.  AF has shown her ugly head.  I am not sure what is going on as after a bit of blood last night (late) I immediatatly did a hpt and got a faint positive.  This morning with FMU it is much stronger but my AF is definatly here too.  

I am ringing the nurse this morning, but I can feel that things have changed since yesterday. My BB have been so swollen and sore all along and since yesterday they are much more comfortable.  So I don't feel like I could be pg now.  Weird.  Anyhow, I guess I'll find out where to go from here. sad.gif

#14 Milano

Posted 04 March 2013 - 11:39 AM

Oh hopelessromantic, I am so sorry. I hope I'm wrong but I went through similar on my 3rd cycle, I had a positive HPT and hcg increased for a couple of days even though I was bleeding. After a few more days the hcg levels fell. What did the nurse say? I hope you are ok and being kind to yourself.

Bwok Bwok, hi and good luck for your EPU tomorrow. I had a very high left ovary this cycle, couldn't find on the internal ultrasound, they had to do it externally and push around for ages. I'm sure they'll find the missing ovary but it might take some prodding. You will probably be sore for a while.

Hi ladies    
hopelessromantic - I'm so sorry. Did you have any luck getting some answers or direction from your clinic today? I hope there's some good news in there for you - thinking of you.
Bwok-bwok - all the best for your EPU tomorrow - I hope that right ovary is there with lots of follies!
Pink1984 - Friday is inching closer! Have you decided whether to test early?
KAM77 and Milano - hope you ladies are both traveling well in the 2nd half of the 2ww.
Hi to anyone else out there in the dreaded 2ww.
AFM - well if I thought time was going slowly last week it's at a whole new level of slow this week! Stupidly I decided to POAS today - why??? Today is 10 days post EPU, 6 days post ET - i assume thats equivalent of 10dpo? Anyway, of course it was a BFN.  I knew it would be before I tested and therefore figured I would be fine when I saw a BFN but its still made me feel like crap sad.gif

#17 Pink1984

Posted 05 March 2013 - 06:59 AM

I decided to test this morning. Today would be 12 dpo and it was a negative so i guess im out for another month. Only have two frosties left then onto another egg collection. Was really hoping that it wouldnt come to that, but the two embries left are only grade 4, still debating whether to throw both in next cycle. DH is concerned about twins, not because there would be two, but just because of the associated risk, and im only a tiny build.
Hopeless Romantic: Im so sorry, its so stressfull getting blood. Have you found anything out yet ?
Good Luck today Bwok Bwok, hopefully you will get lots of embries
Xanado- We always fool ourselves into think that we wont get upset if its negative doesnt matter how early we test. But unfortunantly because we want to see a positive so desperately of course its going to affect us. Stay Strong (its still very early).
Good luck to everyone else (fingers crossed)

Hi ladies

HopelessRomantic I hope you have some answers and are ok. I'll keep all my fingers crossed for you.

Xanadoo I cant even bring myself to pee on a stick. The feeling I get when I think about it makes me hyperventilate and feel silly. Feel crap, and hang on til the BT.

To the others having EPU good luck.

AFM 48 hours to go til the results of the blood test. I've held out this long, I'm going to keep going. I have talked myself into it being negative for an unknown reason. But I guess the BT will tell.

Fingers and toes crossed

Hi Girls,

Sorry your test was neg Pink1984.  Is it a bit early though??

Kam77 hope you get good news fx.

AFM I am still not sure what to think.  Nurse said that amount of blood loss is not a good sign.  Of course.  She said since there were two embryos transfered one could have come away and one still be giving me the positive tests.  
I had another stronger positive this morning but my AF is very heavy and besides feeling yuck and tired I really have no other pg symptoms.  If it weren't for the positive tests I would be sure I was not.

The nurse brought my BT test forward one day only as she said it would be too early otherwise, so tomorrow I guess I'll see what happens then.  It's very frustrating. sad.gif  sad.gif I just wish it was either a yes or a no.

#20 Bwok~Bwok

Posted 05 March 2013 - 05:39 PM

HR - sorry you are going through this, it's what I went through with my Fresh Transfer.

I'm trying to focus on other posts, but it's not quite happening. So I apologise and  I will just say Hi!

AFM: They found my right ovary YAY and I have 10 eggs. I have to call tomorrow to find out how many of them have fertilized.

#21 KAM77

Posted 06 March 2013 - 07:29 AM

Good luck with your BT tomorrow hopelessromantic. Hope everything goes well.

BwokBwok hope you get lots of embies to play with. 10 is fantastic!

BT tomorrow at 8.30am. I dont know how I've made it this far!!!

#22 Milano

Posted 06 March 2013 - 11:39 AM

Good luck today hopelessromantic, I hope you get some good news.

Wow KAM77, I have a good feeling about you. Your AF must be late now? Good luck for tomorrows BT.

Bwok Bwok, yay for the 10 eggs, that is a great result. I hope you get some good embies.

Pink1984, it might be too early for you. It's not over yet so fingers crossed.

Xanadoo, have you tested again? Good luck.

AFM, I'm thinking of POAS tomorrow as my AF is due today or tomorrow. I can never hold off until BT. Lol!

Posted 06 March 2013 - 05:18 PM

Thanks girls for your good wishes.  My results came back saying I was pg.  But I am not now. sad.gif  There is still some of the hcg in my system and I have to test again next week to make sure it is all gone. I am not sure if that is what is called a chemical pregnancy or not.  

I knew nothing could have survived the amount of loss I've had over the last two days. Anyhow, I have had a good cry already and made my next appointment with the FS to see when we can start a new cycle.

I guess at least I feel relieved that the embryos tried to make a go of it.  I feel now that it is really just a matter of time.  

Kam77- Any news??

Milano- Any news??

#24 Xanadoo

Posted 06 March 2013 - 05:48 PM

Hi ladies    
Hopelessromantic - I'm so sorry to read your news.  It sounds like you're absolutely in the right headspace though and ready to get on with the next round. Wishing you all the best.
Bwok-bwok - 10!!! Fantastic!! Any fertilisation results? Fingers crossed for lots of lovely embies.
KAM77 - wow things are looking good with no AF and BT tomorrow - good luck!!
Milano - fingers crossed for you! Keep us posted if you decide to test.  I've banned myself from testing for now - will reconsider on the weekend I think!
Pink1984 - I'm feeling your pain of looking at a negative test - but it could still be too early for you too. So I hope AF stays away and you have good news at your BT.
Hi to anyone else...
I think I've had a better day mentally than yesterday.  Trying hard to keep focussed on one day at a time and staying away from those HPTs!! BT now just 5 sleeps away.  A couple of twinges today that could be AF but not sure.  I'm not even really sure when my period would be due to be honest as its pretty all over the place.  I guess I work off 14 days after EPU? In which case that's Friday...

Posted 07 March 2013 - 03:48 PM

Hi ladies,

Xanadoo - how are you feeling today? Hope you are hanging in there.

KAM77 - how did your blood test go??? Good news I hope?

Bwok Bwok - any news? Hope you have lots of nice embies.

Pink1984 - have you tested again?

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.
