So, if you've been following me, you will know that I have tested early (at 8dp3dt) and got a very faint positive. I got positives every day since then. LOL you would think that would put my mind at rest? Nope. Yesterday morning when I put in my morning dose of endometrin (I'm switching to prometrium once I'm all out of endometrin), I pulled out the applicator and there was some red stuff on it. It was like a milky darkish red, I'm assuming because of the endometrin (boy that stuff is messy). I panicked right away, cried my eyes out and told DH it was over. Posted Image Did I mention that I'm a drama queen and tend to think the worst ALWAYS? Anyway, I was waiting all day to start bleeding (this is when I started bleeding last ivf; 2 days before my beta), and nothing. Not even a hint of spotting when I wipe. Small victory, so far. I have been having what feels like AF cramps since two nights ago when I was trying to fall asleep. My legs were both aching too. Today, no leg aches but I still have cramps.

No bleeding today, but I am wearing a pad just in case... I'm such a worry wart. I have my beta tomorrow. I'm so tempted to go in a day early... BUT!!! I will wait.

This is going to be the longest day ever.

I hope that BFP sticks with you :)

Wishing you lots of luck with BETA tomorrow. Maybe you irritated your cervix inserting your endometrin? Will be thinking of you tomorrow, and yes I will be stalking you!!

How could you NOT be a drama queen? I was...am:-D I was wondering the same thing, perhaps your cervix was irritated, I always hated those applicators.
Good luck tomorrow, I can't wait to hear that awesome beta number :)

This is the thing with finally getting that BFP that you don't fully realize until you're there... it's worse than the 2ww for anxiety and worrying. I was also going to suggest the irritated cervix thing. It bleeds over the slightest thing in the beginning... I had light spotting after I had an orgasm in my sleep. Nothing even touched it. Cramps are supposed to be a good sign, actually, even if it doesn't always feel like it. Fingers crossed for you!

Thanks ladies, You are awesome!! :)
Here's hoping your little one sticks around! FYI (sorry, TMI) but I had a large reddish pink coloured clot come out at 17dp3dt. We transferred 2 embies, and the clinic said it may have been my bodying "discarding" one that didn't take. I also had repeated spotting ranging from peach to red until 12 weeks. The cause- irritation from vaginal medications related to IVF (and the nasty applicators) even as late as 4 days after my last dosage. Good luck!!

That is such great news papoose! I had the same think with milkish pink stuff soon after I tested at home. Good luck tomorrow!!!!

Exciting news - congrats! I had wicked cramps starting at 6dp3dt so I thought for sure AF was on route (but thankfully was wrong). I started to POAS at 10dp3dt and didn't stop for 2 weeks...partly cause I couldn't believe it, and partly because I wanted to relish seeing 2 lines everyday. Good luck, take good care.

As someone else touched on - the worrying absolutely does not end with the 2WW and getting a BFP - then you get to worry about the numbers doubling and the first ultrasound showing a sac and fetal pole - then you can worrry about the first heartbeat, then the next and next - and whether it is growing appropriately - and really, then you get to worry about the birth - and then the breastfeeding and the weight gain - and eventually, that first day of school - then... you get the idea - it never ends if you let it remain. So - my advice - enjoy every positive part of this experience - I hope you get your BFP and everything after that flows along properly - enjoy each part - try not to worry - it only takes away from your enjoyment of the good moments. The bad stuff can come whether or not we worry - so enjoy the good moments as much as you can!

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


Me: 36 years young
Him: 36 years young wink.gif
Step-son: 14
Step-daughter: 12
2 cats: Sprinkles & Leonardo
