Heath2b - a few cramps but no bleeding thank goodness.

AngieB - all the best for the bloods today.

Today's FR was a stronger BFP line than yesterdays.

3 days until bloods!

Hello lovelies

So sorry for the lack of contact.  It's been a big few days getting DH packed up and off to Sydney.  Things are starting to settle down now though.

PCM & Heath - OMG!!!  So excited and happy for you both ddance.gif

Mrs Kelly - thinking of you today and hands.gif for you.  Remember I had two BFN's on FR and still had HCG show in my beta test.

Ritten - welcome to a very supportive group.  I hope your stay is a short one.

AFM - unfortunately my little bean didn't stick sad.gif  Levels had dropped right down and AF arrived last night.  I'm doing ok with the news.  Gut instict told me we were too late with the progesterone support.  But there is really big positives to take from this - we conceived and implanted for a short while.  This has really renewed my hope and frame of mind.  So we'll do another IUI cycle with DH's frozen swimmers.

PCM/Heath, I was having some amazing cramping last week.  The night before my first blood test I said to DH that we definitely weren't PG as I had quite bad cramps - only to get the news the next day that infact I did have something going on.  My boobies were sore and were starting to get fuller too.  I was tired but I had just put that down to everything that was going on with renos and moving.  Funnily enough, I didn't have any cramping for the days leading up to AF and only had very slight cramps yesterday.

Just to add to the fun of AF, I also have an UTI - I was bad and ignored it for a few days thinking I could handle it with cranberry etc but I was in horrid pain yesterday arvo and started getting a bit of a high temp.  So I took myself off to the Dr's last night and he told me off for leaving for so long!

So I'm now officially waiting to O.  First tracking BT next Tues 24th and thinking O/insem should be 29/30 April.

The next month is all about me.  I had a massage on Saturday and I'm going for a facial this weekend and maybe a pedicure. Relax, relax, relax.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers, greatly appreciated.

Hi girls,

May I join also?

I'm currently 8dp3dt on my first IVF cycle. I am having every pregnancy symptom under the sun but I am having pregnyl injections every 3 days so I'm not sure if they are real symptoms or just side effects of the pregnyl.

I am going absolutely crazy and this had been the worst 2WW ever!! My BT isn't until the 23rd so I still have another 5 days to go. My clinic does BT at 16 days after EC but because 16 days for me falls on a Sunday when the clinic isn't open I have to wait an extra day!

I am dying to POAS but I know it won't be accurate as I'll still have the pregnyl in my system. My last injection is Thursday and my blood test is on Monday so I doubt there's any point even doing one at all before then?

AngieB  bbighug.gif I'm sorry, hunny.  You are right though, make this next month all about you.  To gain strength and recollect your faith that it will be your time very soon.

Porkchop My cramps are just like AF is coming... I havn't had any spotting or anything but because I didn't experience this kind of cramping with any of my other pregnancies (1st one was Heath and the other 2 were early miscarriages) I do have to admit they are making me a little worried. Fingers crossed I have a super sticky bean in there!!! Lines are continuing to get darker... Bring on Friday!!!! Going to head down as soon as they open so I can have the results as soon as possible!

ritten Welcome!!!! wishing you a speedy 2ww and hoping this will be your only 2ww!!! They can be painful so be sure to fill up your days and take care of yourself... do something special to pamper yourself.! I always find that helps me!! Plus it's a great excuse! wink.gif

AngieB75 I am so sorry to hear that this wasn't your cycle! It's wonderful to hear that your looking at the brighter side of things.. That conception occurred and that you did have implantation! Wishing you all the very best for your next cycle and hoping you get your BFP with one super sticky little bean!! Thank you for mentioning your cramping... That has eased my mind a little... :hug:

pinkblue Of course you can join! Welcome!!! Wishing you all the very best for this cycle and hoping the 23rd brings wonderful news for you!!! hands.gif

Gemma16 Wishing you all the very best for your transfer on Saturday!! How exciting! :excited: Wishing you a quick 2ww and a positive result at the end of it!!!

AFM Things are going along ok... I am still having cramps which come and go but not spotting.... My lines on First response tests are continuing to get darker so that eases my mind a little. I am bursting for Friday when I have my Beta test done! Regardless of what the clinic decides to do I will organize a repeat Beta from the same Lab through my GP just to make sure that doubling rate is what it should be! and then the LONG wait for that 8 week viability scan starts! Phew! Excited and nervous all at the same time.!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Tuesday!

Hello loolee and womanindocs!  Best of luck for your BTs.

Heath2b - so glad lines are getting stronger.  LOL about waiting for the next scan....  It's all a waiting game, isn't it?  You get through on hurdle and then you wait some more.  You are right about getting a repeat blood after Friday, would be a good idea for me as well.

AFM
FR lines getting darker.  Took a photo in my phone and it's very obvious from my first result 4 days ago.  Still no spotting or bleeding thank goodness.

Take care everyone and baby dust!

PCM/Heath - so excited that your lines are getting darker - yah!!!

Loolee & womenindocs - Welcome and good luck

AFM, not much going on except the long wait for ovulation.  I am a bit excited at the moment though... just booked my trip to Sydney for May 10th eexcite.gif - first visit to see DH.  He's only been gone 4 days and I'm already missing him like crazy unsure.gif .  Timing should be right at the end of my next tww so we might be able to do a HPT whilst I'm there.

Hope everyone is keeping well.

Hi Angel_girl
I'm on Crinone gel twice a day too. So far I have found them alot nicer than the pessaries (I didn't enjoy them much at all!) mellow.gif  mellow.gif
I had my 7 day BT today to check my levels and they were fine so am happy about that.
It's all very exciting isn't it but the waiting game suck!

Heath2b -  BFP.gif ddance.gif bbighug.gif   I have everything crossed that you will have fabulous bloods tomorrow and that we can celebrate together.  

AFM
Bit nervous about the blood test tomorrow.  I've been pretty relaxed and hopeful these last 2 weeks but it all really depends on tomorrow and its objective numbers as to whether or not I'm pregnant.

I have symptoms and lines on FR are darker and appearing much faster now.

Take care and baby dust to all.

Hi Ladies

Just wanted to pop in & say hi.  I have my first FET transfer today it's our third cycle, a day 5 blast so fingers, toes & legs crossed!  lol!  Still on progynova & pessaries x2 per day, I'm hoping this all helps get me over the line.  

I will test on 30th April.  So feeling much better than I have the previous 2 stim cycles, very tired but otherwise good.

Goodluck to Pork Chops & Heath2B for tomorrow's test, hope you get the April BFP's on the way for us all.
