Great number, Cait! Can't wait to hear about the ultrasound next week.
Good luck with tomorrow's test, Sourire! Thinking of you!
TF, that is really good news. Sucks about the strange dreams though, doesn't make you feel very rested the next day, I'm sure. I had crazy dreams when I was pregnant, especially the first time... but they were never as bad as when I was on an anti-malaria drug when I was traveling a few years ago, thank goodness. Yours sounds like what mine were like then... Hoping things settle down for you soon...
Sourire, sorry you are having to deal with spotting-- did you call the clinic to let them know? As others have mentioned, many can experience it, and it doesn't turn out to be anything serious. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow...
Oh, Sourire, I'm so sorry. I can feel your pain over this. I just wish things could be easier, and that you would have gotten a different result this morning, plain and simple. But maybe all hope is not lost, given Blue's story with the POAS and then the beta. Still, not easy right now... I'm glad that you
have your appointment later today so you can do some self-care. Keep us posted, all of us here in the online community are here for you.
Sourire: Hugs! I'm so sorry!! I think Aura got her period before her beta and they figured out her estrogen levels were doing something funky - once they corrected it, she conceived her twins. Perhaps there is more your RE can look into in the 2WW as to why you start spotting so early?
Nivesstevens -- Good luck! I did estrogen priming in August and it went well except for chromosome issues in the embryo that actually implanted... :( This time around, I'm on day 10 of stims with Follistim, after about a week of Lupron (day 21 start). I feel a bit like a bruised pin cushion -- for some reason the injections have not been as smooth this time around as last. I also have 8 follicles on a good growth trajectory (and a few behind that may (or may not quite) catch up). Similar numbers to last time, I'm just hoping for better quality this time! My egg retrieval is on Monday, the same day as tracyamber's FET. Fingers crossed for all of us!
Tracyamber -- I wish you all the best -- may monday Jan 28th be a magical day for all :)
Does anyone here do acupuncture before/after the FET? I heard it could be beneficial but was curious what other folks had experienced?
