The transfer went today... we transferred two embryos that were 8 cell grade 4. The doctor said that is exactly what they are looking for. We froze 3 others that were grade 3, 1 was a four cell, 1 was 5 cell and the other was 6 cell. He said to come back for the beta in 14 days... so now we're in the waiting game.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Hi All!

Our transfer was Wednesday. We transferred 2--an 8-cell and a 5-cell. The third embryo was a 4-cell. So now we wait. Today is the first day after the retrieval and transfer that I really feel relatively ok, so that is nice.

Kelly, New Mama, & ratgirl: I'm thinking sticky thoughts for all of you!

Hey Kelly! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you too! I hope the wait goes by fast!

Good luck to all you ladies, and thanks for sharing your stories...someday I'll be in your shoes, so it helps to see what I'll be facing, sort of.

Argh, so many of us waiting! I wish there was some way to sleep for a week.

My whole midsection just feels.. weird. Achy and full and blech. I'm assuming it's normal, and I hope it feels full because there's a sticky critter or two in there.

Hope everyone waiting is hanging in there, the wait is def the worst part. Not sure of all the test dates but I updated with all the info I had. Just check the first page. I think I'm missing like 3 test dates.

AFM-I had a hysterosonogram, first time I had that. Had an HSG 1 1/2 yrs ago. Re said everything looked great, no fibroids or polyps. Perfectly clear so we are ready for this cycle. Start Lupron thursday which I've also never taken. Old Re always just started with stims and used a more natural cycle. Afraid of the Lupron side effects but hoping this new protocol does the trick. Also just wondering if anyone out there is starting a cycle. I think theres just a few waiting for betas and then just me starting. Hoping to start up a Spring IVF board once everyone gets there betas. Let me know if anyone wants to start it, or I could do it again and hope someone will be joining me. Hope everyone has a blessed day.

Good luck with your upcoming cycle!

My test date is this Friday, March 19th.

Court and Tear: thanks for dropping in here with support! Court: maybe you'll be here sooner than later?

Laura-belle, New Mama, & ratgirl: sticky vibes to all of you.

momtoalexis: good luck on starting your cycle, glad that everything got the OK

My RE said 14 days until beta so I guess that puts me at March 27... seems like a lot further out than many of you...

Mine too. It's feeling better than it did, but just today I've started feeling pulling and bloating again.

Sticky Vibes to those of you in your 2WW!!

MomtoA - Great news!!

I'm just hanging out, waiting for our appt. on Wednesday and praying hard we see that heart beat! I'm feeling very bloated already and I'm guessing I'll be showing ALOT earlier this go round...with my DD I didn't even really show till 7 months. I'm pretty tall though. Dying to tell people...just my mom, dad and stepmom know as well as a couple friends in my Moms group who knew we were even doing the procedure.

Good Luck to all the awesome ladies in 2ww !!!!
I've been checking in to see how everyone is.
Good luck on all new cycles.
I feel we're due from some great news.
I've taken a break for now.
I am seeing an acupuncturist who specializes in IF and taking herbs.
I'm seeing a chiropractor who does muscle testing and balances the body with minerals and supplements. I'm trying to alter the diet and do all the right stuff. I've already been on this regimen for 1 month. I'll stay on it for 2 more months and try IVF 1 more time. I can't believe that I'll be successful at it, if I don't change some things. I'm trying the more holistic approach and hoping it will help. And if not, then I can say I really tried. I realize time is not my friend (straight from the RE). But I need to try something else.
Again, good luck everyone. I still read the forum often (almost every day).

So I've been doing HPT's (I know, bad bad bad) and late last week I got a barely visible line (I'm guessing from the trigger shot), Sunday morning I got absolutely nothing, and this morning I got a very faint line again.

This is the longest week of my life!
post #354 of 454
paytonsmommy: that is so exciting! Keep us posted!

wahine: nice to hear from you... I really hope your new regime pays off.

new mama: only a few more days to go before the beta... hang in there!

I have come down with a cold and not feeling wonderful because I haven't taken any medications... I hope it will run its course quickly and doesn't impact implantation.

Sticky vibes to all!!

I'm trying to hold off on the HPT's until this weekend. I will use one the morning before I go in for the blood test because if it didn't work, I'd rather find out when I'm alone then on the phone with some nurse. I really hate waiting.

Well, we had our u/s this morning and true to my gut feeling, there are 2 babies!! However, we only saw one heartbeat. At 5wks 6days, it's far from impossible that we'll see the 2nd heartbeat when we go back in another week, but now there's just one more thing to stress about in this whole IF deal!! I'm really trying to just focus on the joy that we have one heartbeat/baby for sure and not focus on the "twins" idea (yeah...right!).

The nurse said the 2 sacs are measuring very close in size, which is a good sign, but that it was still "50/50" at this point. My RE then said there was a "30% chance" one twin wouldn't make it....however, I prefer to look at it as a 70% chance they will! It's all very surreal and I'm not sure at what point you ever fully grasp the concept of multiples???!!!!

I could tell right away that there were 2 sacs and the rest of the u/s is a blur..I literally went into shock even though I had it in my head that I was carrying twins.

I'm going to try and focus on that one healthy baby, but keep my prayers that twin B continues to develop and we see a h/b next week!

Wonderful news!! I am hopeful that you will see the heartbeat for twin B next week!! I'm sure you'll get your head wrapped around twins soon!!

Paytonsmommy, congratulations! That is so exciting, though I'm sure it's a lot to think about!

I did another HPT this morning and it was even darker (positive) than the one on Sunday. I feel certain I'm pregnant, though I know I shouldn't count on anything until we get the beta and then see the number double. Still, I'm feeling good about things.
post #359 of 454
Paytonsmommy that is just wonderful news, I am SO happy for you!!! I'm hoping that Twin B catches up to A and your next ultrasound shows them snuggled up.

So it's been 11 days since my trigger shot, 9 days since retrieval. What's the chances of an HPT being even kinda accurate say, tomorrow morning? I was looking for something under the sink this morning and there's a stray HPT laying there screaming my name. But I'm so, so afraid to pee on it. My beta is Monday.

Any spare well wishes for a friend going through IVF for the first time with me would also be appreciated.. she had 22 follicles but they retrieved just 6 eggs today. She's having a hard time not feeling discouraged even though she had a good retrieval.

Good thoughts for your friend, as well.

I *read* that it takes a day per every thousand for the trigger to leave your system. (So a 5,000 dose will clear your system after 5 days, a 10,000 dose after 10 days.)

I can tell you that I did a HPT the day before the 10-day cut-off (my trigger shot was a 10,000 dose) and I got a faint line. Three days later (day 12 after trigger shot) I tested again and there was absolutely NO line. Two days after that there was a faint line, and a darker line the day after that. My beta is in two days, so I don't know for SURE that I'm pregnant, but this is my experience.
