Just found out today that my sister is pregnant with a due date 1 day after what mine would have been if our last FET had worked...damn that would have been so cool...
errantlightThanks Ollie - I'm really sad for what could have been a really exciting experience to share, but I'm very happy for her too - and she's been going through her own fertility heartbreaks the past year and a half (no trouble getting pregnant, but a partial molar plus several early miscarriages), and she's so scared right now.

errantlightThanks Abundant Love - we have one last fresh IVF round starting up next week (if the Quebec government doesn't cancel it halfway through...but I think we've snuck in under the wire), so...fingers crossed

us today showed no ectopic thank goodness. Dr saw a gestational sac measuring a week behind. hcg doubling time slowed down to 72hrs in the last two days. repeat beta sunday but looking more and more like a mc. Trying to stay relieved that it's not ectopic but can't help being so so sad.
JennyAnneSorry ola. This cycle has been so crazy for you. Hoping things get better soon.

Ola1981Thanks Jenny Anne. The rational me knows this won't end well but there's a little part of me that wants to believe in miracles. .....

Day 7 of stims! Tired, tired, tired. U/s yesterday got my first numbers. 6 on the right, 7 on the left. Total of 13! There was a 5, 6, couple 7s, mainly 8s, and 13 was leading. Next u/s tomorrow.
abundant loveSounds great! Good luck with your cycle.

Can't get "I Can't Feel My Face When I'm with You" by The Weekend out of my head. This song is weird and disturbing...yet so incredibly catchy...
CdnHockeyGalHmm...accurate social commentary Mouse. :)
@Meary...you must Youtube the Tom Cruise/Jimmy Fallon lipsynch battle for this song. Whatever your feelings on Mr. Cruise...it's epic.

"Children are the gift from God"
Apparently it's "Fertility Week" on Good Morning America fyi.
Friend of mine told me about another friend who's email address has popped up because of the Ashley Madison's....they are about to do IVF....Any insight on how to handle this please?
rollergirlNot going to stir the pot and hopefully it will all work out in the end.

runnerchickWow, that sucks.
Aug 28 2015 03:09 PM
gibasgirlI agree with the other wise ladies.
Some experiences are solo journies; you can offer empathy and support in that way, but they will have to find a way back to trust possibly with the help of an experienced couples' therapist.
All the best to your friends.

IUI#5 was done on Saturday. There was ONE follicle and the sperm count was 27 million post wash. Prayers accepted ;-)
Aug 27 2015 10:13 AM
abundant lovePraying that you are blessed with this cycle. That's a great count post-wash!

Day 5 of stims. Am I still supposed to be spotting?
Sweet_InsanityThanks there's so much going on hard to know what's okay and what's not

kristeen033I had a big gush of blood on about day 8 or 9 of mine last cycle. I was so scared and convinced something horrible had happened. Next morning at the clinic they said they couldn't tell where it had come from...it was a mystery and everything worked out fine :)
Aug 26 2015 12:19 PM
orchidthis doesn't sound weird to me, same thing was happening during my most recent cycle
Aug 26 2015 03:16 PM
feeling a bit terrified. did a repeat beta today to make sure it went back down and instead it went up. last beta was 11 at 12dp5dt and I had already been off my meds for two days. Today, at 18dp5dt, after a heavy but ultra short period over the weekend, beta is 167. I'm assuming ectopic since its so late inthe game, even though the doubling time is decent.
orchidOiy - hoping you had an u/s already!
Aug 26 2015 11:20 AM
Ola1981Beta went up again - 167 to 299 in 48 hours. Ultrasound on friday to see if we can see anything anywhere. I have my doubts but I'm hoping we see something inthe uterus. I don't expect a good outcome, but I just don't want it to be ectopic.....still terrified. Every twinge makes panic just a little.....
Aug 26 2015 06:05 PM
mouseFingers crossed - my understanding from previous ectopics is that it's very hard for them to visualize anything if beta is less than 1500-2000. Hoping things become clear for you soonest!
