Krunchy- hi friend, hope you're well!
Rcr- hoping those little eggs catch up & you get a chance to enjoy the nice days with your family.
Vireos- It's looking like Saturday at this point. The original tentative date was Sunday, but at this point I'm about a day ahead. We'll know more tomorrow. My dad comes in on Friday, so Saturday would be great.
shesaidboom - OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited for you! You deserve some dancing veggies!!!
It's really too bad the person you talked to was so rude and ignorant. Oh well, it doesn't matter what they say, they can't stop you from being pregnant right???
bucket - hooray for some great betas. I love how there is so much good news in this thread.
rcr - I've heard great things about Sedona, my mom said she had a really spiritual experience there!
bucketofrain - thank you! It was very reassuring to see the line again today.
auraleigh - it's good to know it's not just my clinic who waits so long for betas.
deborah - I'm so glad things are looking good!
vireoes - I completely agree with you, it would have been nice if she was respectful about things even if she couldn't move up the date. Thank you!
sourire - very true! Thank you for the dancing veggies :)
AFM - I tested again this morning and the line was the same as yesterday. It's not super light, but it's not nearly as dark as the control line. Hopefully tomorrow it'll be darker. I'm a little nervous because I've been having some really painful cramps, where I actually need to stop and sit down for a few minutes. I've never experienced this before, but I know some cramping is normal. I just ordered some more tests because I only have 2 left and I want to test every day until Monday because I am ridiculous like that!
SSB- My implantation cramping was that strong with the boys, so I wouldn't worry about it. How many eggs did you transfer? AFM- Another mini-update on Rainbow Baby Kelly making. I talked to the anesthesiologist today. I ended up in the emergency room after my egg retrieval last year so we are doing whatever we can to prevent a repeat incident. I convinced him not to use Versed, so we will use fentanyl and prophynol (sp?) combo instead. I will take Prilosec about an hour before the procedure, I will also take my albuterol right before the retrieval. He will start an IV drip of Dextrose to keep my blood sugar up and an IV of reglan to keep everything down. I'm still a little nervous, but know that I'm in good hands and we are doing everything possible to prevent a repeat incident.
deborah - thank you for the reassurance, it really does help. We transfered only one embryo.
I'm glad there are lots of steps being taken to make sure you're ok as possible during the procedure. I will be rooting for you the entire time! I hope it goes as smoothly as possible.
Cait - it was actually lighter this morning so now I'm nervous. I'm also not cramping as badly as I was so maybe that's not good either.
YAY for no more BCPs soon! I'm so excited to follow the rest of your cycle.
Shesaidboom - Congrats! Cramping is normal!! Some bleeding (if you get it) is normal. You just don't want them both together. I had some pretty bad cramps in my singleton and twin pregnancies. Implantation cramping can be pretty intense and same with growing cramps. I'm sorry that lady was so rude to you. :( Shame on her! SO happy for you!
edit: I'm hoping the lighter test just means there wasn't as much dye. I've got everything crossed!
Bucket - Congrats to you too!!!
I know I don't post here often, and when I do it's similar to this post but wanted to share with you. When I had implantation cramping with my current pregnancy it was SO intense that I took 4, 200mg (or 250mg) motrin for the pain and it lasted for hours. Also, I had cramping and LOTS of discomfort for weeks, backache, abdominal pain, and even brown spotting off/on. Also, because I've had so many losses I test over and over and over again and after a few days the tests got lighter than before (several of them) and then I realized it was a different brand of test. My beta at 30dpo was 57,000 and that's when I stopped testing.
I wanted to say also, I'm sorry the nurse was so rude to you. I understand policy but she could have been more tactful about it. Caring at least.
kewpie - thank you!
rcr - thanks! I'm glad your scan was better! I'm sending good thoughts for your retrieval.
tenk - I'm glad to hear it's normal to have intense cramping. It has gotten better over the past day or so, but I did take tylenol for it at first because it was that bad. DH was worried because I was laying on the couch and couldn't get up myself. Now it just feels like bad period cramping, which I know is forsure normal! I'm sorry you had so many uncomfortable, symptoms. I know I will feel much better after my beta results too.
AFM - tested again this morning and it wasn't really darker (same batch of tests, so maybe these just don't have much dye in them?), but not any lighter. I took a digital test and it said 2-3 weeks pregnant, so that's good. Also, should I stop posting about this here? I feel sort of stuck. I'm not ready to move to grads, especially since I haven't had a beta yet, but I feel like this isn't the place to keep posting about my tests. Should I move it over there? I don't want to hurt anyone either way.
rcr, how are you feeling? i can't wait to hear how tomorrow's report goes! are you toasty out in vegas? it's FREEZING here and i am walking around wearing my sleeping bag coat, dreaming of sunshine.
shesaid, a line is a line! when is the beta again? i am so excited for you to get the numbers. since you tested positive pretty early, the beta should be strong!
