Carrie Miller - January 20

Hi All:

You and I are in the exact same boat. I had my 1st IVF transfer as well on 1/12/06. We had 3 transferred in and I am now on day 9 and the waiting is killing me. My girlfriend at work actually talked me into doing a test today and it was negative - I SO WISH I WOULD NOT HAVE LISTENED - because now i think on Friday the 27th it will be negative as well and I am depressed.

I have gone through the nausea, breast tenderness, weight gain and I just think it is all because of the Progesterone shot that i take every night - I am also a total Bitch and very irritable.

I know (smacking my own had) I should never have done that darn test, but I swear I will be good and wait all the way until either AF comes or my test date.

Good luck and LOTS AND LOTS OF BABYDUST ....

Hi All
I am in the 2ww wait as well. I just had 4 blastocysts transferred on Tuesday from my 1st IVF cycle and am on my 2nd day of bedrest. This is killing me. I am so nervous and anxious.

As anyone here been through the 2ww after IVF? I am dreading the day that the office calls me with my pregnancy test results. Where were you all when you received your results? Any suggestions. I have been off for 2 weeks and will return to work on Monday. My test on Thursday. I am thinking about taking off Friday when the results are due.

This is a wonderful site with such caring people. I am so glad that I found it. :)

I agree - I have been searching the web all day trying to find answers to all my questions. Funny thing is I belong to Shady Grove Fertility Center and did not know about this site.

Now I have people who understand me instead of people trying to help, but who have no clue.

Carrie,
It's very tempting to test early, don't beat yourself up over this. It could just mean that it's early and your levels are not high yet. Think positive! Start saying to yourself that your pregnant and start thinking about how your going to decorate the baby's or babies room. It will lift your spirits up and it will keep your mind busy until the actual pg test.

Having af symptoms is actually a good thing.

Keep us posted

Good luck
Cindy

Hi this is Carrie - my new ID is hopeful2006,\\

Thanks so much for the support. I am beating myself up and a little bit depressed and my husband was like why did you do that it is too early and now you are going to stress over nothing.

But at least if it truly is negative then we will be prepared next Friday . the waiting is the absolute worst and it seems that I get more and more irritable every day with the Progesterone shots (is this normal??) I don't have cramps or anything like that, just irritability and cravings for like chocolate so that is telling me AF is coming. But i will think positive and it is so nice to talk to people who know exactly how I feel.\

I am so glad I found this site .

Carrie

hopeful2006, Hey girl welcome aboard, Look don't beat yourself up and don't stress out behind this, I have taken several test that came back negative and I was indeed pregnant just tested to soon, I had myself so worried this week because I'm still in this dreaded 2ww, but I did'nt want to waste a test or become depressed, So I'm just waiting until Monday I have a doc's apt, and the truth will be told then, because if the urine is negative my doc will do a blood test just to be sure before I start the provera to jump start my cycle, I'm sure you will enjoy this site as well as we all do....Take Care....China

 

hopeful2006 - January 21

wow u did ... at least there is hope .. OMG I know you are so excited you only have 2 days to wait .. I have like forever .

i actually am supposed to start my period on Sunday, but don't have my pregnancy test until 12/27 -- OMG the wait is killing me. b/c i know either AF will be here Sunday or Monday or maybe even try to sneak in around Tuesday and then I will know that the IVF didn't take.

It is ok though b/c we did day 3 and a lot of people told me that they are not the best to transfer that i should have done day 5, but the doctor said day 3 and so we went with what he told us. he is the dr after all.

So i do not that i will try again, but to be honest i will be really upset for a few days. Also this progersterone shot is killing me the side effects are so much worse than the Follistim and Menopure. Shoot I cleaned my whole house on those and was in a really good mood, but this is like jekyl and hide ..

thanks and prayers are with you ... ::)

Hey hopeful this is hopeful2006 .:

I don't know if you still come on this site, but I wanted to know how you were doing. It is because of you that I have hope. I am in the 2ww and it is killing me -- i actually caved and did a test and it was negative so i am freaking out, but i am only on day 9 of my 2ww and my test is not until next Friday so i am hoping that it was just way too soon to tell.

I hope all is well with you and thanks for the inspiration =- when you said yours was a BFP I was soo happy for you....

Carrie

hopeful2006 - January 21

China:

I am sorry that you feel so frustrated -- my period is due like tomorrow if they are going by the 28 day cycle, but if they are counting it dfffirent then i would not have a clue when it is due.\\

My test is next Friday and I guess unless AF comes I will just sit and wait.\

Think positive -- I went out and got a new hairdo and my nails done this morning - i feel a little bit better..

Take time out for yourself.

hopeful2006, That is so true I'm going to go with my daughter in the moring to get a manicure, a pedicure and get my eyebrows waxed, and just wait until my apt I thought it was Monday but it's Tuesday the 24th, When I went to the bathroom last night it was a little pink when I wiped but it went away, If I were pregnant I would be trippin out, I have had so many m/cs if I see anything pink or red I go crazy when pregnant I just keep wiping until it goes away, and usually it does'nt because that means I'm in the beginning stages of a m/c, But this way I was'nt to worried because i don't know for sure, All we have to go through to try to be mommies and mommies again....Take Care....China

 

hopeful2006 - January 22

China:

Good for you !!! I got a new haircut and highlights and got my nails done all before I had to go to work today at 12:00.. Everybody loved my hair and I felt really good about everything after being so inpatient and doing the HPT and it being negative and me being all depressed.

I feel pretty good today - AF is due tomorrow and I don't have any signs at all -- my breasts are really really sore, but i have no cramping and usually my back hurts and this might sound funny my teeth and gums hurt -- AND THEY DON'T.

I am so excited that I might be BFP this Friday. I am just crossing my fingers. I to have had 3 m/c and the last loss we experienced I carried until 17 weeks and I had already had my CVS and my baby was a perfect little girl. We had many sonograms and she was so active and beautiful.

Then on the horrible December 16th at 5:00 a.m. I felt something wet all over the bed and did not know that my water had broke. I went to the bathroom and was unsure what happened b/c there was no blood - so i told my DH that I thought I pee'd myself, but then came the back pain and the strange pressure and my DH looked between my legs and he could actually see our little girl. So we were rushed to the hospital and of course I was out of my mind with worry and dispair and my dr was so wonderful - after I had to deliver my baby she asked me if I wanted to hold her and I held my little Erykah in my arms for the one and final time. She was so beautiful and she had the most beautiful little features. WE could actually see that she looked like her daddy and she would have been extremely long b/c she was already had long legs and beautiful little hands and fingers.

So now that I am in tears sitting here telling you my life story as you are at home still unsure of what is happening to you = sorry to be so selfish I so pray for your BFP on Tuesday.

I have to wait until Friday and just hope that AF ABSOLUTELY KEEPS HER UGLY BUTT AWAY FROM ME ;D

Thanks for listening, I have not talked about this for quite some time and I just realized that I am still dealing with the loss and putting a whole lot on this IVF to work.

BABY DUST ALL OVER FOR BOTH OF US .......

Carrie

hopeful 2006, You have me sitting her with tears as well, Something so simular happened to me in 97, my youngest daughter was'nt quite a year old and I was about 20 weeks she and I were home alone and my stomach had been bothering me all day I laid down and woke up in a pool of blood, I was so scared I went to the bathroom and when I went to wipe I felt something hanging out at that point I blacked out, I called my aunt that lived around the corner because I knew she could take me to the emergency and also watch the baby, by the time see got I had passed the baby in the toilet I thought it was a dream, my aunt got the baby out and wrapped in in something and took us to the hospital of course there was no way it would have lived it was born to premature, I have only shared this story with a couple people because it brings back to many bad memorys. But sometimes it's good to talk about things, alot of times I go into denial so I don't have to deal with things. I have some many stories but I will tell you this positive one, my youngest was born at 26 1/2 weeks, like you I woke and thought I peed on myself which I never have so it was weird, I realized it was my water that broke, she was born and weighed 1lb 13ozs :) she is truly a miracle, and she had no medical complications she just had to get to almost 5 pounds to come home, and she will be 10 years old in August so out of all the 20+ m/cs I have 2 beautiful daughters the other will be 17 in September! Enough about me, I no your was beautiful and I' so happy it made you feel better I will begoing with my daughter in the morning. My breast have also been sore but it feels like my cycle wants to come, my dh said maybe because my body knows it's suppose to come but your p/g so it's not coming, I told him that's wishful thinking :). Back to you Friday will be here before you know it, I hope AF stays away from both of us, lets pray and keep our fingers crossed...Have a good weekend, keep me posted....Take Care....China

Hello Carrie and China,
Thank you for sharing your life stories and I do hope you both have a bfp on Friday, please keep us updated.

I read this site most days and it truely is so encouraging to hear from every one, this infertilty sure is difficult.

We will be doing our second IUI in March. If this doesn't work it will be IVF, hopefully in July, as recommended by the fertility clinic.

Rest well while you wait.

China:

OMG I am so in tears right now. And I am so happy for you and your daughters. That is an amazing story and yes it feels like I have found a soul sister out here that can relate to my problems. I know that I CAN have a child b/c I have a 19 year old son, but it seems as my age went up so did my possibility of having another child. Did they tell you why you went into labor so soon when you had your horrible loss?? :'(

I have made many mistakes in my life and at the age of 25 actually had an abortion., If I would have known then what I know now I would never even have considered it, however I was in a very abusive relationship and to be honest as many times as he hit me I don't think the baby would have made it or even me for that matter b/c after the abortion I was so outta there and if i had that baby we would be still in contact and maybe I would not even be alive. He threatened to kill me many times and even put a knife to my throat at one point when my son was only 5 years old.

Back to the positive in my life I met my DH when I was 27 and we got married when I turned 30 and we have been married for 9 years this June 2nd ... he has a beautiful daughter from a previous marriage who is 15 this month and I have a son who is now 19 from a previous relationship, but we together have experienced a tubal pregnancy which caused more physical pain than anything else, i have had a over 7 ovarian cyst removals and endometreosis as well as a bladder problem (something like interstetial systitis i am not sure how to spell it) and then of course the loss of our beautiful little girl (Erykah) on December 16th 2003.

They say i lost her because of an incompetent cervix and now if I do have a BFP on Friday at 8 - 10 weeks I will have to be sewn up and possibly be on bed rest for the entire pregnancy. Trust me I will do it if that is what they say, but i hope they just tell me that i need to take it easy.

I have two jobs and also do a small business from home so i am a very busy person and financially we would be crushed if i could not work b/c i work for the County Public School System and they do not offer maternity leave (paid, except for what you have in your own sick leave accrued) and with all these dr appts I barely have anything left.

I am awake and that is very strange b/c i have worked a lot of hours this week, but just awoke for some reason and can't go back to sleep. My God I hope that does not mean AF will be showing today - sometimes when she is coming i wake up strange times. I do have some mild cramping, but nothing major kinda more like I have to go to the bathroom, but I am still so scared of going in the bathroom and seeing blood b/c i will know that my 1st IVF attempt was futile and I will have to start all over again and all these hormones are killing me and my body - I have gained weight and no matter what cannot lose it and i am extremely tired and irritable so that is making home life not so great.

Take care and I really look forward to getting online and seeing your responses (actually everyone's responses).

Have you heard anything from HopefulDC -- the last thing I read she had a BFP and I was just hoping all went well for her and her little bundle??

Carrie

I see I am not the only one who can't sleep today.

Thanks for your well wishes and prayers - trust me they are much appreciated and needed.

Best of luck with your IUI - I am unsure what the difference between IUI and IVF are, but I hope the IUI procedure works for you and your DH.
