beta day!!!PLEASE BE POSITIVE AND HIGH!!!
Opened the Christmas toys’ box today and letters were right there… 9 letters to Santa from me and 9 from my husband. Sealed … 9 long years we had only one wish… to become parents. Our son is right here with us and YES, we will write letters to Santa this year again! Asking for those who are in struggle and little Christmas miracle for them!
amazing graceNatti, thank you for lifting my spirits. 6 long years for me and still hoping. This time of the year is very difficult.

My last FET i had a Endo scratch done and my period lasted 9 days and it messed my lining up. Now Im tryimg again had a D&C done on CD 6 and now im on CD 5 of my next cycle and i just know the same thing is going to happen. Just want this to stop
ERA results show non-receptive. Told to repeat biopsy. Comments?
janny82If you conceived twice before, then it's clearly not an implantation issue. I did the ERA because I had 5 failed transfers (HCG=0). Unfortunately the ERA protocol was not a solution for me either as we are at 8 failed transfers

janny82Has your doctor looked into immune issues? Did you do PGS on your embryos? I would look into those things perhaps. I consulted Dr. Sher in Las Vegas and he also doesn't believe in ERA. I am sorry for your losses, amazing grace. That is tough.

amazing graceThanks Janny, I have had every test under the sun, all clear. Embryos are fine as well. I don't get it but I agree with what you are saying. I hope you find success as well. xoxo

um.... i was told that what i thought was AF... it was not AF... it has actually stopped after two days... i cheked E2 (609) and Progesterone (69,62) and apparently i have really good levels and i am supposed to continue my meds.. they said .. it was not my AF!! so ... WEIRD!!! what was it?? am i still having a chance? so confused but not disappointed!!
nervus optimistcould it have been a subchorionic hematoma? I had a big one with tons of bleeding. fingers crossed you get more good news soon!

CdnHockeyGalLots of stress and worry. Are you in a Cycle Buddies thread? That's a great place to post your questions and update to get support. Best of luck!

i was told to do a beta on Friday since my period only lasted 2 days and it was very light too.
wanting to know more about families that receive donor eggs
and ... spotting!
annatarz79ty i am actually in a good mood and i was discussing with DH that it will be better not to conceive than conceive and miscarry as is happening with us so far. so in general what ever comes we will deal with it but to be honest i doubt i am pregnant... and that is ok too... next time :)

Has anyone ever tried Cramp Bark or Black haw for a Transfer
2ww day 3... some of the meds i am taking makes me feel dizzy i am calling my doctor tomorrow to figure out which one!! also i have cramps from progesterone. i decided that i will stop looking in to my symptoms and wait those two weeks!!!!!!!!!! ( i think i can make it ...)
Seem14hehe, that would be very long!! This would be my first, so everything is pretty new....so you know the whole thing with "ignorance" is bliss! lol (well more like I just really don't know what to expect! but it is indeed all worth it!... hope you're doing well! :)

Dec 01 2016 02:18 PM
annatarz79amp77 actually it is the first time that it is not bothering me. my feelings are on neutral!!! i dont think about it unless i am about to do one of the DO NOT'S. time sure flies when you dont count it!!! :)

Were others told not to drink during stims? I wasn't told and enjoyed a few glasses of wine during stimming but a friend (at the same clinic) was told no alcohol. Just wondering the rationale or what others were told. She is on Gonal-F, Cetrotide, and Luveris.
nervus optimistI have always heard, everything in moderation until transfer day. then act as if you're pregnant. you're fine. but if you are concerned, ask your clinic.

amp77She is calling the nurses. It is just strange as we are at the same clinic so I was wondering what others were told.

mouseAt our intro session it was suggested that we treat our bodies as pregnant from 3 plus months prior to starting - no alcohol, smoking, bad habits for both me and DH; although we were told it was as much as to avoid us blaming ourselves if things didn't go well as anything else
