Hi everyone,

We both decided we weren't up to the dresser/clothing yesterday so instead we just hung out- very low-key and it was so nice.

I will update late tomorrow about our appointment.

Lots of excitement here! I really hope not everyone leaves before I get pregnant

Thanks @Xerxella, I will try to do well as threadkeeper. I do the TTC thread. Thanks for suggesting I am crafty. I would like to have more time for crafty projects- jewelry making and scrapbooking in particular.

Sorry you are bleeding so much @kewpie80. Hope the BETA number starts going up. Hugs hun. Try not to stress

Hi @hope4light and @Tear78

Thanks @chuord, hope you are doing okay

Great numbers @adiejan -your follies sound great, good luck on your upcoming trigger

Hi @iixivboots - glad your numbers were so good!

Hi @tracyamber - hope you are doing well

Hi everyone else!

Let me know of any status changes!

@tinytina - I guess you can move me out of waiting to know and to the May BFPs. I guess there's no denying it anymore. Thanks for taking the new thread! It has been lucky in the past! :)

@adiejan - Good luck with trigger!!!

Thanks for being thread keeper. On the last thread I copied/pasted a sorta update because it was very un-updated. It is the third to the last page. You could glance at that.
Also, move me to


Bfp for June..... I cannot bold for some reason!

Subbing so I can cheer you all on. :) Hoping for an excellent retrieval and lots of blasts for you, Adie! Sounds like it's looking good so far.

Thanks for taking the thread, Tina. Hope you can make a good plan with your doc tomorrow!

Hi ladies I have been following along and wishing you well. Haven't felt like I have too much to contribute since a lot of this is so new to me.

Had my 7dpo progesterone draw today and it came back at 13.1. I feel like it is an okay number but not sure?

My understanding is that anything above 10 is considered normal, alivewithyou.

Thanks for being the thread master Tina :) keep us posted on if you get to try this next month.
Xerxella - congrats!!! I know I've said it before, but actually accepting it's happening is a huge step after all this fertility stuff - I'm so happy for you 😄
Tracy - sorry I forget, when's your scan? Any symptoms?
Adie - I need to focus on more craft stuff too. I have heaps of half done sewing projects... And a half sanded wine cabinet...
Hope - how are you traveling with it?
Alive - don't stress, we all go through phases where we need space.
Afm - question for those with knowledge... Since the doc thinks last week was just break through not AF I took my temp today at possible cd8 it was under my cover line - after last stim cycle I had higher temps for a while (halfway into next cycle) since I wasn't triggered would they have stayed low? I'm trying to work out where I'm at... My last bloods (on possible cd 2) were progesterone 0.7, estroidal 146 - but I was on suppressants for 10 days after not trigger. I hope someone has an idea as I really want to know if I should be getting ready to 'try' naturally this month.
Tina my status would be waiting to know where I'm at - or equivalent. Sorry no bold either

A little out of it today, so more later but...
My second beta came back as 281, up from 103. Doing one more Friday. :)
They didn't test my progesterone again, I guess 21 is a good number so they didn't feel like they needed to.
Still not sure if I'm staying with the clinic for early monitoring or going to OB at 8 weeks. Depends on what insurance covers.

@kewpie80, when do you get your beta results?

@Xerxella, how far along are you now?

The February 2015 DDC is open as of yesterday :)

Subbing also to cheer you all on! I know many of you probably don't even know my connection to this thread, but I'm a graduate and I keep staying to cheer on the lovely ladies I met along the way, then I get invested in cheering on everybody else too. I hope you don't mind me lurking.
@Kewpie, they're not going to test for doubling? It could set your mind at ease, though with Freddy my midwife refused to do it cause it leads to over analyzing....I guess she knew me well. :p. cheering for you big time!

I am amazed they aren't doing a repeat beta for a whole week! I guess I've heard 72 instead of 48 hours, but that's a long time. That's a rough wait :(

Hi Tear! :)

Yeah, i was surprised they're waiting so long too. I guess it's better than doing one and then nothing. I've heard of clinics doing that sometimes.

HPTs are still darkening and bleeding is a little less. I'm starting to breathe now.

@kewpie80 - If you like that plan and want to wait a week, that's fine. If that doesn't work for you, ask for another beta sooner. It's your body and your pregnancy and you need to do what works for you. With this pregnancy when they wanted to do serial betas and u/s's every few days, I knew that wasn't going to work for me, it would just stress me out. So, I said no. I told them when I wanted the u/s and that was that.


If serial betas stress you out (like they do me), then don't do them. If they reassure you, then do them. You're paying them. And what's your asking for isn't unreasonable. Don't be afraid to buck the system and go after what you want.

@chuord - I don't know. I tend to think your cycle will be a bit wonky for awhile. I would think when you have a period, it would be substantial from all the meds you were on. But, I really don't know and I'm just guessing. I would think if you see signs of ovulation, just go with it. Otherwise, don't worry about it.

@alivewithyou - Yep, I second that 10 is what they're looking for in a natural cycle. You sound good to me! :)
