Hi all.
I dont know if Im posting properly as I have never participated on these threads.
I have just done my 2nd FET, got my BFP

1st beta was 358 (12DP3DT)
2nd beta was 883 (14DP3DT)
Progesterone 111 (on suppositories)

And now Im left alone for the 2nd dreaded 2ww until our 1st ultrasound

By my calculations I should be 5 weeks today but I am getting worried. In the beginning I had the sore boobs, stomach cramps, fatigue etc
Now all i have is the sore boobs which the suppositories can always be blamed for.

Is it normal to not be feeling pregnant at this time?? I dont even feel bloated anymore

Please help!!

Hey, same here! This wait from 2nd beta till u/s is killing me. I will invent any reason to go and check on pregnancy if I can. But wish that nothing harmful will happen due to this wish of wanting a test!!

My u/s is June 13, KA. So initially we were same day lol. funny that DH has week off after the week of scheduled u/s where our anniversary is. Now he will switch week off to u/s week to come with me! baby already changing our priorities! Although I had a 2nd thought (dismissed now) of delaying u/s to anniversary week, day. but thought what if it was not so gd of news (God forbid) and I want to know asap. The only case I will still do this plan B is if he was not able to switch his week off.

Guys, do the clinics give you u/s photos/copies in this first u/s? I heard they just print them as they go showing u and give you this long slip that has a few. Correct?
Me: 34 | DH: 35Dx: DHMFI (Dec 2011: progressive motility 40% (higher than 32% is fine); count 183.5 million (equal to or higher than 39 million is fine); morphology normal form is 1% (they look for anything over 4%) rose a bit.Me - normal, irregular AF (also, on high prolactin and low thyroid medications).

January 30: EDD.
June 17: bleeding, ER, Twin A passed away. Twin B still doing fine with a bit smaller than normal yolk sac and size.3 u/s that week showed same results.
July 20: 12 week scan came not as surprise because I lost most symptoms in previous week. Twin B passed away.
July 28/29: miscarriage by misoprostol accompanied by heavy bleeding and pain. D&C had to be done 2 weeks after for remaining placenta tissue.
Ashermans year: I was diagnosed with Ashermans Syndrome (Intrauterine Adhesions) due to D&C. Treated after lots of research, appointments, heartache, and hysteroscopy procedure at PCRM.

Aug 2: 2nd u/s @ 10w, twin B vanishing, twin A measuring 10w1d h/b 169 hands moving slowly, I'm in love!
Aug 8: 1st prenatal appointment with family dr, all looks well in physical (no u/s done).  
Aug 20: NT scan @12w3d. All looks good. Baby was wriggling, knee kicking, arms moving. Adorable, left us in tears. 7cm. HB 159. B/w was excluded from NT test results as twin b sac was still there. Yet, nurse said results from u/s r good.       EDD: February 2014.

Glad we have this area to wait eagerly / anxiously about the next milestone. I myself am just trying to stay grounded and not think about it too much. We have our u/s booked for Friday June 8th, and I wish it was then already. Man, this wait sucks.
I have no idea what they do for the first u/s, and ours is in a general private clinic so it would be different. I just hope and pray that it is smooth sailing for all of us from here on in.

Hello Everyone

I am also waiting for my ultrasound. It isn't until June 19th! I will be 7w6d along. I don't know why I have to wait so long! I'm trying not to think about it too much. My betas were good (apparently - they sound low to me!) but I haven't had any symptoms yet. I have been tired, but I think it's just the emotional rollercoaster!

Me:
PCOS and bilateral blocked tubes (one removed)

History:
4 IUI - 1 ectopic pregnancy (resulting in surgery and loss) and 3 BFNs
1 natural pregnancy - ectopic again (surgery and loss)
IVF with ICSI - BFP! DS born August 2011
FET - BFP! DD born January 2013
FET May 5 2014 - One blast transferred. BFN
FET June 5 2014 - One blast transferred. BFN
Current:
Really long modified IVF August-September 2014 - BFP!
Due June 14, 2015

KA, it could be worse! My clinic does betas two weeks after transfer, and ultrasounds at 8 weeks. So I had to wait 16dp3dt to get my beta, and now the ultrasound isn't for another 3 weeks (and two days!). I may go mad. Or just spend all my money on HPTs.
Me: 32, no known fertility problems.
DW: 37, no known fertility problems, but for obvious reasons she won't be getting me pregnant!

IUI March 2009 - BFP!
DS born 12/09

IVF with ICSI - April/May 2012.
April 26 - Start stims
May 10 - ER - 18 eggs retrieved, 9 mature, 3 fertilized :(
May 13 - Three day transfer of two embryos. None to freeze.
May 21 - Faint second line on HPT...
May 22 - Line is darker! It's a BFP!
May 28 - Beta 671
June 21 - US

Hey ladies,

Just noticed this thread today. How is everyone doing?

I am going for my first U/s on Thursday May 31st, the initial set date postponed as I had to travel to visit a sister who had a preterm delivery but thank God the baby is doing well - born at 26 weeks now he is 29 weeks!!

So I can safely tell you that I am anxious, the only symptoms I have had for the past week are heartburn, boobs still sore and huge, cramping atleast twice a day.

So I guess I will be the first to go... Am extremely anxious that's all I can say.

Ttc forever!! Well more than 10 years now what an emotional rollercoaster!!

Stayed in hospital for 3 weeks trying to see if I could make it to viability...labour kicked in at 23 weeks & 5 days, Held my baby for 5 hours until she grew wings..thinking.gif 

Even I can't believe myself... that once again I am here!!

Looks like everyone (else) has had really high beta numbers! Wow! My clinic says mine are okay, but they seem so low. I only transferred one blast, but still.

Kel - Did you only have one beta? Your clinic does make you wait a long long time! Wow! At least when you finally hear the little heartbeat you will already be farther along in your pregnancy (less time to wait after u/s).

Still no symptoms for me.

Me:
PCOS and bilateral blocked tubes (one removed)

History:
4 IUI - 1 ectopic pregnancy (resulting in surgery and loss) and 3 BFNs
1 natural pregnancy - ectopic again (surgery and loss)
IVF with ICSI - BFP! DS born August 2011
FET - BFP! DD born January 2013
FET May 5 2014 - One blast transferred. BFN
FET June 5 2014 - One blast transferred. BFN
Current:
Really long modified IVF August-September 2014 - BFP!
Due June 14, 2015

Hopefulmom, yea that is right exciting not June and this week! As I mentioned before, "low" numbers I read in charts online had healthy pregnancies and even multiples. I actually seen more of surprising end results for higher numbers. The bottom line, no rule at all for anything. Except if they were going down then your doctor has the say. Enjoy and don't worry dear!

I will satisfy your curiosity as I don't want it to harm baby looool.... I also need to vent:

My decision is related to moving to different province and accepting certain offer we have. New province has no one we know and we are delaying making final decision till June with all what comes with this of almost starting new life in total, alone, with baby/babies and settling our stuff/work in the current location... This makes me nervous because I wanted to feel I am settled and will prepare the baby's coming/room/etc. in my comfort zone rather than new place .... This is the story in a nutshell!

KA, it could be worse! My clinic does betas two weeks after transfer, and ultrasounds at 8 weeks. So I had to wait 16dp3dt to get my beta, and now the ultrasound isn't for another 3 weeks (and two days!). I may go mad. Or just spend all my money on HPTs.


I would definitely be going insane! I think this wait is worse then the initial 2ww!

Hoping to get some really great news today from Goldy and Adventure!

I am not sure how some of you are holding out, but I can honestly say this is one the hardest thing I have ever been through, this wait makes all the other times seem easy, it seems harder than the 2 ww, then the 2 day wait for doubling. I am a pretty big mess. I have cried at least a few times a day, and seem to be very easily triggered and let down. My best friend knows what I am going through and has not even checked in to see how I am holding up. Only she and my sister and mom know where we are at, and my sister and I talk daily, and if I feel like giving her a symptom update then I do, but otherwise I just know she is there. I am not sure if my friend just does not want to bother me, but it would be nice to know she realizes the significance of this time??!!??. I also heard, via text message Posted Image that my last childless friend is pregnant, need I explain!

I know I should feel elated at this time but I am too stressed and nervous to feel anything else. Maybe it is hormones, or maybe it is just I cannot escape our past. I just want the ultrasound to be here. I cannot imagine the wait that some of you have to endure. Yikes!

I am really crampy, really bloasted (have mild OHSS) and feel quite pucky at times. My boobs are really sore (more so at some times than others)! My husband has now officially given up trying to take meaning from anything I feel, as have I. What will be will be, and all I can do is hope, pray to anyone that will listen, and will this baby / these babies to come to mommy and daddy!

I sure hope you others are coping better than me, and if so share your strength and wisdom please!

HopefulMom - Yeah, for some reason we only have one beta. Very odd. Try not to worry too much about not having symptoms yet. A lot of women don't.

Lynblair I feel as if you are writing my story right now! I have all of the same symptoms! Tender breast (off and on) cramping and bloating!!! I have 2 weeks and 2 days left of my wait until I have my 1st scan....I am going insane! I am so scared something is going to happen in that time!

Its funny, I feel like, if we can just see the heart beat, we are safe.....I know that isn't 100% true...but its what I keep telling myself over and over!

I am also dying to hear from Goldy and Adventure!

Lynblair, I hear you, too! generally that is how I feel even though some days I feel better than other days... I hope we give strength to each other as you said. My friends are all pregnant or have kids now even ones married years after me, and also members in my family (sisters, brothers, all married nieces and nephews) are with babies. See in this we are same, but I frankly learned to believe in destiny. Our babies are more preciously awaited for... They are made with more love, tears, dedication, perseverance, and....technology's help, but after all it is destiny that brings them here (or not) so we only have to do what we are humanly able to. And we all did our best. Even though I am frightened something is telling me all will turn out well!

Just a note, in times I feel a little bit down I keep taking these dollar HPTs. Frankly, they are my small beautiful addiction. They gradually darken in a afantastic way, just like i took another beta till u/s.

Hope you feel better today!
