hi stillhoping/hopefulflyer/me2too/ecogal/brentor/elipat10,

(i'm copying off a message i posted in a different forum)

Thanks for all the encouragement and positive vibes...we went for beta test this morning and were supposed to call them at 3:30pm about the results; turns out the clinic called right before 3:30pm and said the results were not ready yet...so either i find out later tonight...aaahhhhh! what a way to rattle your nerves....so we wait again.

as for the spotting, i asked my DH (since i don't speak farsi) to inform them and get advise...no explanation was given except i'm now on 3 suppositories a day (or 3ml of PIO injections)...so, i'm thining it's implantation bleeding and hoping for the best.

so much red tape here...can you believe the center we're going to does about 30+ IVF procedures each week?
there was about 15 of us women when i had my transfer...amazing.

news flash: my called them again and just told me it was BFP 148!!!
i'm crossing my fingers for the 2nd beta on monday!

thank you all!
all the best to you and i will keep you posted.
annoneh
