Sid - Yay welcome to the thread! The due date calendar says January 6th for me. So we are just a couple of days apart. As for your symptoms, no worries. I emailed my doctor cause I get cramping too and he replied saying it is normal. Just get plenty of rest and if it gets worse he will up my progesterone to help my uterus relax as much as possible.

Valishka - Woot! Congrats! Crossing my fingers for a good strong beta for you :) Cramping is normal. I checked with Dr. M at MFC and he said as long as you are not bleeding bright red there is no real concern, its normal in early pregnancy.

AFM - I just got the result from my beta: 580!!! I am over the moon happy right now. I go back on Friday for a second beta to make sure the numbers are rising.

Hello all Posted Image,

Wondering if my faint positives are real or due to HCG trigger?

IVF #4
18/04/12 HCG trigger (10,000 units)
20/04/12 ER 5 mature, 5 fertilized
22/04/12 ET (day 2 transfer all 5)
30/04/12 very faint BFP
01/05/12 very faint BFP
02/05/12 very faint BFP!

is this for real or could it still be the HCG trigger lingering? sooooooo nervous

Shanti - I would say the trigger should be gone from your system by now, so its probably the real thing :) When is your beta scheduled? Wishing you strong beta numbers and lots of baby dust!

Shanti - I started testing at 8dp5dt, and continued every single day afterwards. Its like pee stick OCD lol. I used the cheapie Dollarama ones and then yesterday I confirmed with a clearblue digital. The line the first couple of days were faint. They then got progressively darker as the days went by.

Hi Ladies, Can I join? I know it's super early but I'm just too excited but cautiously so. Anyone else freaking out? I have my second Beta tomorrow and I'm a little nervous, as I've been cramping a little bit. My first Beta came in at 533 on Tuesday. Judes I remember you from the Nov/Dec IVF cycle. I'm so happy to see you on here.

Shanti - I took my first HPT on Saturday so three days before my beta but I was too chicken to do it earlier. I'd say the results you are seeing are definitely not from the trigger shot.

Shanti and JKennedy welcome !

Shanti, did the line is goind darker each day ? This is usually a sign that your HCG level is raising Posted Image So even if the first BFP was because of your trigger, just look if the line goes darker or fainter...I have my beta May 7th too, it seems so far away ! Usually HCG 10000 stays for about 10-12 daysPosted Image

JKennedy I'm still worried too and I know I'm gonna be anxious until 12 weeks of pregnancy Posted Image I've learned that it is so difficult to relax while we are pregnant, and it is worst because of IF and our BFP that are soooo precious !

JKennedy - Welcome! I remember you too from a previous thread. Glad to see you here! Congrats on your BFP and strong beta result! Good luck with your second beta tomorrow. Crossing my fingers for you :)

I too am a bit of a nervous wreck and will remain so till my 12th week as well. I think none of us will really relax until then. I am trying to take it a day and week at a time. I will breathe a little easier when the beta has doubled and we get a heartbeat.

Hi,

My EDD would be January 13, 2013

In answer to your question Valishka the tests have all looked the same, except maybe the first one was a tiny bit lighter (but it is hard to confirm that because I thought it was negative so I walked away and then when I looked again I thought evaporation line? But the next 2 tests look the same but I have only been testing less than 3 days......the only reason I tested that early is that I had a bit of spotting the day before so I thought hmmm maybe implantation? But also have some cramping so I guess I have to waite a bit longer to find out....
Good luck to all you ladies!

Shanti I think the test line has to be darker every 2 days or so....(because the HCG should double) So it is surely good news for you !

I also did POAS this morning (second time) and my line is darker than monday fiouuu ! I was so stressed, almost more than my first POAS monday Posted Image So I think everything is good Posted Image
But I was wondering, is it normal that last 2 days I don't feel much cramps and pinching than before ? Is it okay ? I feel almost nothing :(

Sid : It depends of the RE that is there the day of your BETA ! At my first IVF, I had to do 2 beta's, 48 hours after the first one. But it's not always like that. If your beta level was nice, you don't have to worry ! Some RE ask to go again whatever the beta numbers is, and some don't, but if your beta was lower than 100 they would ask you to come again. When will be your viability scan (how many weeks/days of pregnancy ?)

Since a few days I have some crazyyyyyy nightmares and weird dreams ! Posted Image I always woke up in panic and lost, asking myself if it was real or just a dream ! I think it's because of the hormones Posted Image

JKennedy - How did your second beta go? Hope you have a nice strong number!

Valishka - Yay for the darkening line. That is excellent news! As for symptoms, I think they come and go in early pregnancy. I have not had cramps in a couple of days now nor any twinges, yet my beta yesterday was good. Don't worry too much about it and enjoy it for now :) I also have trouble sleeping these days due to weird dreams. I dunno why, but that seems to be the way things go. I try to nap during the day to compensate for disrupted sleep at night.

Sid - how are you doing?

AFM - well just taking it easy and waiting for my second beta tomorrow. Any of you started cravings yet? I think I have, cause I am having liver for lunch. Yes you read right, liver lol

  • Hi all,
I think my BFP was a fake....line seems to be fading ...either remnants of the trigger OR very early m/c...anyway not too hopeful about this cycle anymore feel like AF is around the corner :(

Continued success to all !

Shanti I agree with Judes ! Maybe your urine was more diluted that's why it isn't more darker...? Who knows ? Chin up until your beta ! Or maybe your trigger wasn't gone but you still be pregnant ?

Hi Shanti, as Judes and Sid said don't give up hope. I was sure this wasn't going to work as I truly felt like my period was coming, and I was sure wrong.

Valishka - I also had crazy dreams. I think it's all part of it.

Judes - good luck on your beta tomorrow.

Sid - I'm having a hard time sleeping too. Mostly it's becasue I wake up so often to go pee. This morning I woke up at 4:30 and couldn't go back to sleep.

AFM - Finally got my second beta results. I didn't get them until after 1pm and I was freaking out, thinking something was wrong. No need to worry though beta almost tripled, 1367. Next step ultra sound on the 14th, same day as you SID. I'm going to try to relax until then, but I'll probably start freaking out again the night before LOL.
