9dp3dt and spotting...

Posted by papoose76 , 01 November 2010 · 2877 views

...and still trying to hang on to hope that this is normal. The nurse told me this may happen and to still go in for the beta even if it seemed like a full AF. I hope she wasn't just blowing smoke up my ass. I feel so pessimistic about this ivf, and wanting so bad to feel good about it. A faint line maybe? I'm not even getting faint lines. I tested with a FRER today and it was stark white. I want so bad to believe that this is going to turn out with a BFP :tears:

I am starting to feel like a certified lunatic and that I am becoming increasingly annoying to my sister and my DH because of how negative and hopeless I feel and keep talking to them about. They both keep trying to reassure me that it will be fine, even if it is a BFN. Life goes on (yeah, just not inside me)... It's so hard to be positive. I have decided that tomorrow I will take a trip into the city and go watch a funny movie or do some shopping. I need distractions... The past two days I have been googling symptoms and such... Not a good way to spend the 2ww.

Hang in there. You will soon know the outcome come beta day. I think taking in a movie is a great idea! Do what you need to do to distract yourself! I know all too well about incessant googling. It can drive you batty! Take care. Sending positive vibes your way! :)

Spotting is normal in IVF. Keep your faith in this cycle working. Full out AF spells bad news. Have a fun day in the city, do what ever it takes to get your spirits up.

I really hope so...

Thanks ladies :)
Just wanted to add that I too had implantation bleeding (not spotting) with clots. I had what seemed like AF for a week. I read somewhere about breakthrough bleeding(hormonal changes) and I think that was the case cause my temperatures also dropped during that time. My son is now almost 7 months. I pray it is the same for you.

Sending you positive vibes!
I have heard a lot of women talk about the implantation bleeding!
I hope that you can enjoy your day in the city and relax.
Sending lots of hugs :)
Hang in there!!! Sending positive thoughts your way. :)
I have heard that spotting can be normal.

I know how hard it is, hang in there.

I think going to watch a funny movie is a great idea!!!

I had spotting and I have a beautiful 2 year old!! Hang in there!!

My reproductive history (or lack thereof)

From age 13 to 18 I had one boyfriend who it turned out was unfaithful to me. We never used condoms because I trusted him and I was on birth control. He gave me an STD at age 17 (gonorrhea) and I had no symptoms, so I have no clue how long I had it before I had it treated.

From age 18 (yeah my relationships overlapped because I was "getting even" but fell in love with the guy I cheated with) to age 22 I was with a different guy. We lived together for 3 of those 4 years and ttc with no luck at all.

Age 23 to age 30 I was with my ex-husband. I started seeing my fertility specialist in 2004 (age 28). HSG showed clear tubes. Lap- 2 fibroids removed, some lysis of adhesions. 3 Clomid cycles all BFN. Another HSG showed clear tubes a year later, and another lap after that showed nothing major (exploratory). More clomid cycles, more bfn's. He never wanted to do ART, he called it "playing God". Then he cheated on me and I had to kick the bastard to the curb.

Age 32 (2008) to present, I have been with my second husband. We instantly fell in love and after a couple months of dating, moved in together and started ttc. We "just knew". We started seeing my same fertility specialist and had an HSG which showed one partially blocked tube (non-mechanical blockage). May 2009 I found out I was pregnant!! Very unexpected but very much wanted. Ultrasound at 6 weeks 6 days showed nothing in uterus, pregnancy was ectopic. It was removed at 7 weeks pregnant. Worst emotional pain ever sad.gif HSG 3 months later showed one fully blocked tube, one open. We registered in the IVF program in January 2010, and are just now in the process.

IVF #1
Suprefact: Sept 27-Oct 17
Puregon: Oct 8- Oct 17
ER: Oct 20
ET: 23: 3 eggs retrieved, all intact, 2 fertilized and made it to transfer!
Beta: November 4/10 moved up to Nov.2/10 because I started bleeding heavily and tested negative on a FRER. I am beyond devastated... Beta was less than 1.2 BFN

I am back on the waiting list at my clinic to do another IVF cycle. The wait is 8-9 months, so I won't be cycling until either July or August 2011. In the meantime, I will be trying naturally and giving "Benedryl therapy" a try in case I have implantation issues. Can't hurt.

HSG done March 15/11- Both tubes were clear. Appointment on April 6th, new b/w, pap, and Rx for Femara for May and June cycles.

IVF #2
July 25- first u/s and b/w. Cyst on right ovary & estrogen level high. Injections delayed.
July 28- second u/s and b/w; no change... cycle cancelled th_aggahhh.gif
July 31- October 1st I will be on BCP.
Oct 3- first u/s and E2 b/w- fingers crossed that the cyst will be gone...
Cyst is gone! Started microdose Suprefact (20 units) on October 4th twice a day, and Bravelle (150 iu) & Menopur (75 iu) on October 6th twice a day.
First monitoring appointment on October 12th!! Fingers still crossed!
ER, October 19th: 10 eggs retrieved, 9 fertilized!!
ET, October 22nd: 2 embryos transferred (one was 8 celled, the other a morula)
BFP on early pregnancy test (10miu) on 8dp3dt
Beta: November 3rd!!! Fingers crossed!!! 112!!!!! yahoo.gif
Beta #2: November 5th- 133 sad.png
Beta #3: November 9th- 31... cry.gif Another angel baby in Heaven...

HSG; December/2011- Right tube blocked (hydrosalpinx) at the end where the ovary is. Left tube clear.

FET #1- transferred 3 embryos on March 23rd
BFN on FRER (April 4th)
Beta: April 5th- negative


December, 2012- Husband left me for another woman. TTC has ended for me.cry.gif
