Well it is nice to meet you Julie. Now I can pray the proper way for you personally. Thank you for your prayers for tomorrow. Nervous as all get out... Talk to you later.

Hey guys, sorry I have been out of pocket, or at least away from the internet for a couple of days. I feel so behind!!

Red~ I am so sorry to hear about your HCG, I think it is just awful that you have to wait until your u/s!! I am not sure I understand though... your numbers are increasing so that has to still be a good sign, right!! Hang in there, I know it is incredibly hard! We are all here for you and I will definitely remember you in my prayers.

Jenny~ I can't wait to hear about your u/s tomorrow!! How many weeks are you now? It will be the most amazing thing to hear that little heartbeat. I don't have my first u/s until the 29th. I will be 7 weeks then and we will be able to see if there is one or two little peanuts in there!! Will we be able to hear the heart beat by then?

Jennie~ I know the 2WW is almost unbearable! But I bet you are getting so close, hang in there and don't over analyze everything, it will drive you nuts!!

Dani~ Are you still here, haven't heard much from you. I think it is so crazy we are having pretty much the same symptoms. I was bloated for the last couple of days SO BAD, painfully bad. It hurt even to eat. I really think it is a combination of hyperstimulation, estrogen and progesterone (and HCG I guess). I went in on Monday and my HCG levels had doubled to over 1,000. My estrogen was out of sight at over 4,000 and my progesterone is 720. So they decreased my progesterone shot and took me off of the estradiol pill. I think it is already starting to help, my stomach feels somewhat better today. Other than that I am not having any symptoms.. no m/s but I guess I am more tired. I hope this is all normal??!!! Also I am drinking lots of Gatorade, it is suppose to keep your electrolite in balance from the hyperstim.

MJ - Glad to hear you are doing great. I was 6 weeks as of this past Monday. Thank you for asking. How was your weekend? It seems we only have 2 new ones on here for their 2 week wait. The more I hear of no m/s with most of us the better I am feeling about things. What all is going on with you symptom wise? Talk to you soon

 

Red - August 16

Jenny~Good morning sweetie! Said my prayers for you last night and this morning and can't wait to hear your positive news later. Be sure and update us on peanut's heartbeat!!!

MJ~thank you for the words of encouragement. Unfortunately it can be a temporary good thing as the pregnancy is progressing, it's just that it isn't growing in my uterus but elsewhere. Unfortunately my symptoms are starting to lean toward a tubal pregnancy. I have to go back again tomorrow to have another beta. I'm so happy that you are doing well. I'm also glad that you are starting to feel better now that they reduced your meds. Hope all continues to go well. You're very blessed!!!

Take care ladies!

Good morning Red - Thank you for your words of encouragement and best wishes. Good luck and I will be prayhing for you tomorrow as well. We are still hangning in there in the positive. Have you spoke anymore with the doctors? Hope you are feeling well today. I will let you all know what happens today when I get home. Thank you all for your support it is much welcomed and certainly appreciated. Here is praying that we see the baby's heartbeat!!!!

 

Red - August 16

Jenny~I know your appointment will go well, but please do update us when you return. I know God has heard our prayers and everything will be great! No, I haven't talked to the drs. after yesterday when I got the numbers. They said just to keep an eye on severe pain and vomiting. I haven't had either of those, but do have an ache still in my rib cage/back. Unfortunately, I think that is a negative sign of a tubal pregnancy. They said we should (again) know more tomorrow as the numbers have to double or there is definitely a problem. Anyway, you just stay focused on peanut's heartbeat today and relaxing!!!

Thanks and have a great appointment!!

Julie - Have you read your post from Dr. Jacobs on the medical reference board. It sounds pretty positive to me and that your RE's office is doing what they need to be doing. I am praying things look better tomorrow for you and even though a vanishing twin is still sad and we will mourn that one with you I still believe and pray that the other one is okay just taking a little bit to get adjusted. Keep the faith as always. I am getting ready to get dressed and all. I have to pick up the mother and the soon to be sister in law before heading to the doctor's. Plus, gotta wake the DH. Thank you for your inspiration and prayers. I will eamil something when I get home. My appointment is at 10:45 and it is almost 9:00 here in PA. Stay positive honey as I will try until I see whatever we see on the u/s. I am so scared. Talk to you later.

 

Red - August 16

Jenny~Don't be scared! It will be fine and God will be there with you!!! You will continue to be blessed today!! Good luck!

Hi Jenny,
Any news yet? Thinking of you today....

Red, I know how hard it is to keep faith, bu there is always hope. Nothing is certain right now. Keeping my fingers tightly crossed for you.

MJ, may I compare some notes with you? I am sooooo worried that something happened to the baby. I had a sharp cramping on Tuesday night and my bloating and other symptoms like being hungry and tired started to fade away yesterday and today I don’t feel much at all. I went to have a blood test today but they told me the HCG levels may not mean much at this point s( 3 weeks from retrieval, 2 weeks from transfer) since it only doubles at the very beginning (??)) So there is not much they can do other than waiting for another week or so for the u/s. Not sure what to think. I am super worried though. It is funny that we always tell others to keep faith and keep your positive thinking but I can't do much myself, it is so hard.

Hugs
Dani

 

Red - August 16

Dani~Thank you so much for the words of encouragement. I am just waiting for another hcg test tomorrow to see if it doubles. It was 32 points away from doubling yesterday so they are hoping it doubles tomorrow or they are looking at me having a tubal pregnancy :'(! I am sure your baby is just fine. Maybe it's your time to be symptom free for a while. I've heard they come and go so I'm sure everything is fine. When was your actual transfer? I know Dr. Jacobs (the Fertility 101 forum) said that hcg should double the 1st 3 or 4 tests if things are good. How have yours been progressing. I will pray that things are fine with your baby.

Jenny~You're killing me Sweetie :P! I'm hoping us not hearing from you means that you, dh, and the fam are out celebrating your peanut's photo opportunity today! I continue to say prayers for you and peanut! Keep us updated. LOTS OF HUGS!!!

Take care ladies! Hope everyone is doing well. Take care!

Hello Everyone - Sorry to put you all thorugh so much but after we went to the doctors we then went to lunch and then had to stop by my mom's work to pick up some paper work before the school year starts. So it went even better. I am now considered 7 weeks along as of today and the heartbeat is strong. We get to not only see it but hear it. I started crying right away. I go back to my RE for the last time on the 28th. The peanut sure is takings more of the baby shape now. I can make out the arm buds from the u/s picture.


Dani - Honey as long as your HCG levels are rising and close to doubling or doubling or more you should be fine. I have not had many symptoms and just saw the heartbeat. Maybe we should sit back at look at it like this. With the journey that we have taken to get here and what we have put our bodies through, maybe the man upstairs is looking down on some of us and giving us a smooth ride for once. Hard to believe I know but I can't seem to explain it any other way. As always stay positive everything should be just fine.

Jenny - YIPPEEEE!!! So glad everythings good with the peanut!

 

JENNY22074 - August 16

Thank you Nix. How are you doing? Remind me again where you are on your 2ww.

 

Nix - August 16

Hi Jenny,

Thanks for asking, I'm doing ok. I am almost at the end of my 2ww! I can do an HPT on Sunday, that's if AF doesn't arrive before then. I have been having cramping for the last few days, feels a lot like AF cramping! Last time I only had cramping on one side at a time, the RE said that it was normal to feel slight twinges in my overies due the the Clomid, but this time has been so different, I didn't have any "twinges", just started having these cramps about 2 or 3 days ago. Any thoughts??

 

JENNY22074 - August 16

I was cramping a little on and off from the day of my transfer. I stopped cramping about 5 days before my 1st beta. Then the day after my 1st beta and throughout the weekend I had really bad AF like cramps. So I would take it as a good sign. Anything else? When is AF due?

 

Nix - August 16

AF is due Saturday, I think. My cycle is usually anything from 18 to 32 days long. Last month it was 27days.
I know I am supposed to be having positive thoughts etc, but I have really been trying to prepare myself for a BFN, last time was SOOO hard, I almost didn't do the IUI again, just to save myself some emotional pain.
Of course, there is always some hope, but DH's count and progression was really bad this time! Oh well, I guess only time will tell!
Just glad to have all of you here for a bit of support!
