Me too! Take it easy if even if you're not feeling too bad, it's a rough time on your body - don't push it.

And I had 2 day 3's transfered on Saturday, making your embies one day younger than mine. (I am just being silly). Cramps could very well be due to digestion issues (yes, I AM bringing up constipation AGAIN). Also I assume that after my ovaries swelled up like grapefruits, there is some rearranging going on in there now that they are shrinking. My boobs still hurt and the progesterone is knocking me out.
Here's some : for both of us!
And everyone else out there, too.

I also had a lot of cramping the day after the ET and then off and on during the tww. I do agree that it may be constipation. This may be TMI, but it hurt each time I had a bm since I felt like I was straining the abdomen area. Unfortunately, it still hasn't all gone away, maybe the progesterone. My boobs never hurt but I was knocked out and still need naps. I think symptom vary so much. Good luck to both of you!!!

As of yesterday there were 7 at the pronuclei stage, 3 or 4 looking somewhat promising. The rest hadn't gotten to pronuclei and really should have by then.

All along I have felt like this was going to be it, this was going to work for us. And now I am starting to really worry and stress. I'm trying to distract myself but it's difficult. I guess I thought we'd have more who were doing better.

The doctor said we will check in today and if there are some clearly doing better than others probably transfer today, otherwise wait another day or two. We are going home Sunday evening so we can't transfer any later than Sunday afternoon. I'm just praying there are enough and maybe more of the others perked up too.

I've been having some cramping too. I was constipated for a little while, not long thank goodness. Then the opposite happened! I thought it was because I was drinking tons of kefir and some grape juice. But my husband wasn't having either and had the same problem so who knows what it was. I actually prefer it because with my ovaries still being swollen it's less painful than constipation lol. Oh also I was wondering if some of the digestional issues could be from the antibiotic they gave me day of ER and day after.

Any updates? I'm praying the ET and your journey home went smoothly.

NicoleMarie - I'm still thinking of you...

Good luck to all of you in the tww!

craziness

Okay. I so thought that I would be more relaxed and realistic this time around, but no. I went away on the weekend, and overdid somewhat (thinking - if I'm not pg it will because I did too much walking), was subjected to crazy loud screaming yesterday at a children's play area (thinking - if I'm not pg it will be because of this awful noise level). I am officially supposed to test on the 8th, but I think I am going to go on the 7th, much more convenient for my life (I already have childcare on the 7th) and I don't want to wait over the weekend if they don't get results the same day. I have no desire to POAS though, I didn't last cycle either. I think it would just make my crazier! Btw, lots of weird twingey cramps, but I am okay with it because it could mean good things (things are "cooking" as a nurse once said to me) or digestive issues (yes, still) or just things still calming down after stims.

How is everyone doing? Did you have ET airmide, are you doing okay? Do you have a long trip home? How's your recovery from ER going Sri Rahad? Hope all is well with you both.

Blessings everyone!!

I did the same thing in the tww. I was convinced I was not pregnant and decided to trim our bushes a couple of feet. So there I was in the heat on a ladder sweating it out with the clippers. :roll I think you'll be fine. And good for you not giving into POAS. That was so miserable for me that I'll never do it again. Hopefully this week will go quickly and the 7th will be here before you know it with lots of good news!

airmide: I also hope we get an update soon! You are in my thoughts!!!

CRM: I have a good feeling about this cycle. I have it in my head you are pregnant. For some reason, I thought you already got your BFP! Hopefully this is some good intuition on my part!

Everything is ok with me. Just waiting for AF. I think I have a week before she shows up. Things will be quiet with me for some time. But I am still coming back to cheer you guys on! :

So I've popped in awhile ago when I was hoping to start a July cycle. I had the polyp successfully rmoved and we're set to start meds on Aug 18th.

Nervous. Excited. I started a baby blog: http://ourlittlebabyblog.wordpress.com/

I'll try to keep up with the posts here. Wishing us all good luck!

Good luck. Plan some nice things for yourself and DON'T LET YOURSELF GET CONSTIPATED!!!

Typed up a big reply and lost it so this will be quick.

On friday the doctor did a 3 day transfer and didn't even argue about putting 3 back, yay!!

There is one other doing pretty well I think, and 4 others who he didn't have as much hope for. I guess I'll find out more about them soon.

I can get a pregnancy test a week from Wednesday.

Btw, the lady who referred me to my doctor has been pregnant 3 out of 4 of her IVF cycles! She said to rest up the first day or so after transfer, and then get some mild exercise to keep up blood flow. So I'm trying to do that but it looks like you guys have a head start on me!

Congrats on your ET!!! : Take care of yourself and take deep breathes.

BTW, I HATE it when a nice long, well thought out post gets eaten, so annoying!!!

Know what else is annoying? The 2ww!!!!!!!!!!!

Good thing it's almost over for you. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts for tomorrow and sending lots of : and

Airmide - So glad the ET went well. :

Organicsister - I'm wishing you lots of luck and a smooth journey. You might want to start an August IVF thread to see if many others are on a similar schedule. It was very helpful for me to be going thru it at the same time as others.

CRM- good luck tomorrow:

I had what felt like period cramps on Monday/Tues. and light spotting- so I am worried that it didn't take. The one strange thing that my husband and I noticed is that it looks like someone drew on my chest with a blue marker. My veins are very visible- hubby said he has never seen anything like this on me before.

Gosh, I'm nervous. Hope we're 2 for 2 tomorrow!

Bellyenvy - : to you too! The vein thing sounds very promising! I'm still getting cramping and I know someone said that progesterone suppositories can cause spotting, so keep the hope alive! One more day...

Well, I'm going for the b/w tomorrow, but I won't get results until Friday. If it's not BFP, I'm going to Vegas next month. It makes me feel better to think that somehow...

Hope everyone is well, how's your recovery Sri Rahda?

crazyrunningmama,
been lurking and wanted to let you know i am having a lot of hope for you tomorrow/friday!

Hi CRM! I am ok but I am still super bloated. I look 4 months pregnant and I just wish this belly would go down. It's gotten worse since the retrieval and I don't fit in any of my clothes except a pair of yoga pants I bought specifically for this bloat! I hope it goes away after I get AF but someone on another forum it could take a month or two. It's uncomfortable, too. Ok, enough whining!

I am really hoping you get a positive! I think you will! :

Congratulation, bellenvy! :

Thanks for the luck vibes! I had that horrible inflated feeling too, so annoying because I only have so many shorts and capris that are baggy enough. Hope it gets better soon. Do they have you limiting your fluids and keeping an eye on weight gain?
How are you feeling, Julia'sMom?

Who else is still out there? I want everyone's news!

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow Crazyrunningmama!

Sri Radha sorry you are still bloated!! I can hardly imagine what you're going through. It was bad enough for me, I don't even want to think about if it had gotten worse or continued *hugs* I hope you feel better soon!! Also, I have found that drinking as MUCH water as possible when bloated helps. And switch to unprocessed sea salt (Celtic or Redmonds are popular brands). If your blood pressure is ok you can mix 1/2 teaspoon into some water a couple times a day. That helps me a ton whenever I'm bloated.


I got some bad news today. We had 5 embryos back at the doctors office. And NONE of them made it to freeze, not even the 1 he said he was hopeful for.

Also my estrogen is slightly high.I could have told them that! At least it means I get to wear one less patch which means less itchiness and less money. But I'm worried about it making things less than ideal for the babies at the very time it's most important!
