Hi nonnie,

I am in the same boat as you. Driving myself crazy. I am due for my beta on Saturday, but the lab is closed so I have to wait until Monday. Like I have not waited enough!!!! I as you, have been freaking out, questioning every symptom. I wish you the best on Wednesday.

This is our first IVF/ICSI as well. We had 2 failed IUI's with clomid and injectables.

Best of luck to you!!! ;)

Hi Bundleofjoy!

I feel ridiculous! I am a registered nurse, had no problem with the injections...okay, the first one took me a minute! But really, hovering over my own belly with a needle was quite a bit different than jabbing a patient. The same hesitation occurred when it changed to IM injections (I give them to myself about half the time). But I have understood the language, instructions, rationale, etc. I also don't remember the 2ww after IUI to be this unraveling emotionally. Maybe it's the money, maybe it's because I left the ET telling myself that until AF arrives, I was considering myself pregnant...maybe it's because none of our other embryos made it to blast stage and cryopreservation.

My bbs hurt again. I think the timing of my progesterone shot is the culprit (12:00 noon). I feel 'better' in the morning and decidedly crappy in the evening. But I thought breast tenderness was due mainly to estrogen...I'll have to research that.

I can't believe they are making you wait the weekend! Why couldn't they just test you Friday?

Nonnie,I pop up just to let you know that I had the same thing happened to me when I was on 2ww- 6 or 7 days after my transfer my bbs stop hurting for a day.I thought it was over,but next day the tenderness returned and after all I had BFP.Good luck to all who is on 2ww and hopefully we'll see you in IVF topic a few days later!

Dear Marina,

Thank you for your reassurance. I have been reading your posts on the site and I wish you success with your FET on June 13. Beta tomorrow, I haven't tested again since Sunday morning at about 4 or 5. I am either going to sleep today away, or get out of the house. The power nap will probably win, since I'm exhausted and always have this light, nagging headache. But first I'm going to stay on the site for an hour or two to boost my confidence and hope.

Good luck to anyone else on the 2ww.

Marina, I will be praying for you.

I mistakenly wrote that my last hpt was 11dp3dt...it was 9dp3dt. I'm at 11days past my transfer today. Duh!

 

Marina - May 6

Nonnie,I know this 10 days are the longest days in your life(wait until the Beta call from the clinick tomorrow!LOL)
I think you started testing with hpt too early-it's not going to show until at least 9 days after(mine was negative on day 8th,than very faint positive on day 9th)
It seems like all that baby journey were long for you and a bit a hassle.Good luck tomorrow!Let me know! :)

 

desertnonnie - May 6

AAAAHHHHHHH!!! I couldn't help it...I took another hpt and it was negative. I've spent the afternoon in bed, but I guess I'd rather not be totally shocked and break down on the phone with the nurse. Will post the official results tomorrow, you gals deserve to know too.

[quote]Hi Nonnie,

Its amazing how fast you learn to give yourself injections. I never thought I would be here.!

I finally caved today and did a hpt. Of course it was negative. Now, I feel horrible! Why do we do that to ourselves?

Good luck tomorrow! Lots of baby dust. :)

Okay, so, my mother-in-law asked me this evening what my instinct was- did I think it worked or not? I am posting my answer since I think it is kind of funny. USUALLY, my instincts are right on. But I do not trust my instincts on this since my feelings about it literally change every 10 minutes! I would have felt more positive had I not taken any hpts (the BFN at 11:00 this morning was a butt-kicker). Truth be told, I think I took it today because I really thought it would be positive. When it was negative, I just researched the type of test, the levels it detects, and the HCG levels in normal pregnancies. So rather than believe the negative result, I'm still trying to find another explanation...I'm still trying to let myself believe that it worked. My advice - DO NOT TAKE THE HPT!

Well Ladies, I'm on my way to the lab...You'll know when I know.

This really IS the LONGEST two weeks of the month! I found this site because I was looking online for info about takinga HPT after and Ovidrel Injection. I keep staring at my calendar and counting days backwards and forwards in an effort to somehow make time skip ahead a week!!! I am trying to keep myself busy to pass the time, but nothing seems to work! All I can think about is TICK TOCK!! Help!

Sorry I haven't responded...my DH kidnapped me for a couple days after our BFN. Don't worry, I'm ok. We are taking 1-2 months off before trying again. I always hate Mother's Day.

Dear nonnie,

Thanks for the congratulations! I am very happy.

I am sorry things did not work out this time. But, please do not give up! It will happen. :)
I know how devastating it can be. Miracles do happen!!!! I only had 5 mature follicles at ER. Out of the 5, 4 fertilized with ICSI. On the day on ET, 1 was a 3 cell that had to be discarded. 1 was 8 cell, the other 7(oblung shaped) and one 4 cell. All 3 were transferred. DR said, the 3 were considered B and C grade. But he kept saying, "all I need is one", and it happened. He also suggested, we do Assisted Hatching, due to the thickness of the outer shell of the embryos. I don't know which little guy made it, but it did. So please be positive!

I am 36 years old and my DH is 38.

Best of luck to you. And please keep me posted!!!!

LOTS OF BABY DUST YOUR WAY!!

Thank you so much for keeping everyone informed about me Beth...You were great to help out so much with me not having a computer up and running...However now I do have one so I can keep in touch...Gabriel is doing great...I can;t believe he turned 6 weeks on Saturday...Time sure does fly...He is beautiful and has a great disposition...He doesn't fuss much and has been sleep 4-6 hours in between bottles since we came home from the hospital...I have been blessed...

My birth story...Well I went in originally on Friday the 28th of March at 6:30 in the morning to be induced...They were so crowded that they sent all the scheduled c-sections and inductions home until 21 people could be discharged from the post partum unit and the ones in labor and delivery could be sent to the post partum unit...It was crazy...Well then at 1:30pm that same day I got a call to tell me to come back in at 3:30pm...So when we got back there they took me right in and at 4:30 they started the pitocin and I was 2cm at that point...They also broke my bag of waters and put a monitor on Gabriel's head to monitor his heartbeat because of my excess skin they were not able to get his heartbeat to register with the external monitor...Let me just say that that whole ordeal HURT!!!!...So a few hours later I got my epidural and was relaxing...My left side kept getting more and more numb because that was the side that I was laying on so he could better tolerate the contractions that I was having...So at around 6:30am they cheked me and I was 9cm and then shift change happened so they did not check me again until around 8:30am and I was 10cm and could start pushing...Well after about an hour of pushing Gabriel came out at 9:27am and weighed in at 7lbs 15ounces and was 20 1/4 inches long...He was wide awake and stayed that way until they took him to the nursery to get his first bath...Now my little man is 12lbs 2 ounces and almost 22 inches long...He loves to eat and it shows...I would love to send you all pictures...Anyone interested just drop me an email and I will send you his shutterfly album...

Well enough about me...How is everyone else...I have sooo missed you all!!!...Looking forward to catching up

I had my follow-up appt. yesterday. Totally weird news -
My DH's sperm count is normal! His average sperm count before this SA was around 5 million/ml, last one was 49 million/ml. He had surgery for a varicocele TWO YEARS ago and is just showing improvement now?

Anyway, we were planning on taking a break for the summer before doing IVF again (need to save the $!), but RE suggested that we could try IUI with Clomid, which is covered. Any comments on this plan? I have also started acupuncture and baby aspirin.
