Big hugs JIC! sorry to hear.

AFM- my second beta only went up to 357 from 191 but they said it’s okay still. We will see.

MrsCann as long as it doubles in 48 to 72 hours. It looks like you are within that range.

Crideout - good luck with your beta today. Did you decide to test at all beforehand?

 

MrsCann - how are you feeling?

 

AFM - symptoms come and go for me with cramps off and on, though less frequent than the first few weeks, nausea here and there, tiredness and spotting. The spotting is disconcerting but I keep telling myself that it can be a normal part of healthy pregnancy. I go in for my last beta on Wednesday, so hopefully the numbers are still on track.

I think I will tentatively join you here. My transfer was on Aug 30th which puts me at an EDD of May 18th. I have had 4 positive hpt on 5,7,9,11dpt but my first beta isn't until Thursday! I just had a MC in June so I am very nervous especially as this is my last embryo.

Does anybody have their first scan booked yet?

Thanks returnable! So frustrating getting a test but no results til Wednesday. I decided not to take a test. Im afraid Ill get a false negative and be bummed for the next 2 days. This is already too much of an emotional roller coaster as it is.

Returnable- we will be beta buddies on Wednesday! Good luck to you!

MrsCann when is your next beta?

JIC hope you are doing well!

Welcome choicemom2be! Wow! That sounds like a BFP to me! I totally understand your hesitation tho. I cant even bring myself to take a hpt yet. Just had my first beta today but wont get results until after my second beta on Wednesday. My transfer was 9/2. Sending good vibes your way!

Welcome Choice :) can’t wait for your first beta, your hpt seem pretty good.

Cride- fingers crossed for good news for you as well.

Return- hoping for good beta #s again on Wednesday.

AFM- my RE only does the 2 betas they called yesterday and said looks like it’s progressing well. I go Wednesday for my 5 week scan to make sure everything looks normal and growing where it should be. For symptoms I’m extremely tired and want to nap constantly lol I noticed last night my nipples are very sore and I get nauseous on and off and my smell is unbelievable it’s so strange lol

As far as symptoms go I started with frequent urination including waking up in the night and now sometimes more than once, and exhaustion taking naps when I get home from work. Now I also have sore breasts and have just the other day started to get heartburn. I'm not even 5 weeks yet!

Yes the symptoms can come early. I have now noticed dry eyes and dry mouth at times. I never knew those could be progesterone/pregnancy symptoms, but they are. I only had the heartburn a couple of times, though I know it can come back. The sore boobs I've had since we started PIO. About a week ago I started to get the absolutely exhaustion during the day. Yesterday I could hardly focus on anything at work and all I wanted to do was just to curl up and have a nap.

 

How are you ladies taking in your estrace/progesterone? Anyone doing PIO? How is that going?

Yes returnable- dry mouth, dry eyes and nose! I just thought it was allergies or I wasnt drinking enough water.

Are you all exhausted everyday? I had a couple days like that but Im a little worried that Im not having that extreme exhaustion everyday. Its like you want to feel things just to know that you really are pregnant, right?

Anyone having a hard time sleeping at night? I heard that can be a thing with progesterone. Im so tired but I feel like Im tossing and turning all night. And how about headaches? I have a dull headache most days, but it could be my sinuses. And grumpy? Man, am I grumpy! Lol

Im dong the lovely estradiol/progesterone vaginal suppositories every night. Its not horrible. I think Id rather that than the PIO. How that going for you?

All of the symptoms come and go for me. Today my energy levels are way better compared to yesterday, but my eyes were blood shot this morning and that's when I realized they were super dry. I went to pick up some lubricant eye drops. I don't want some woman in the know to think I may be pregnant because my eyes are bloodshot.

 

I have had trouble sleeping some nights with the tossing and turning and just not being able to settle. I don't get headaches for the most part, but have heard other people with headaches due to progesterone/pregnancy.

 

I actually don't mind the PIO. DH does a great job and that's one less thing I have to shove up my vg. With the PIO as long as I prewarm my butt, I only get bruises here and there, but no lumps. DH has found a technique where he minimizes any movement while the needle is in me, so I don't get any soreness from the injections at all. Of course I am looking forward to not having my ass poked at 6 am every day....3 weeks and 5 days to go...not that I'm counting :D

It's funny how everyone's progesterone/estrogen protocol is completely different. I take my estrace vaginally and I also have a patch that I change daily.

Choice- rectally 3xs a day?? Im so sorry!

MrsCann- you might be getting the wrong angle on them. I did that the first couple nights. Its like a tampon.,. Point more towards your tailbone instead of up. It seemed to help me.

I feel lucky that I only have to do my suppositories (depositories as my husband called them lol) once a day

That's a great sign Crideout! Good luck today with your beta.

 

AFM I have my viability and dating ultrasound on Tuesday. The techs aren't supposed to show you anything, so unless we get lucky we won't know the results until 1-3 days later.

Crideout- good luck with beta today.

Returnable- that is really exciting about u/s that sucks however that you have to wait for results.

MrsCann - I am still taking the edometrin 3 times a day, smell and all (I think this morning was last as I have my ultrasound to confirm miscarriage). I actually preffered the PIO shots but reacted to them.

ChoiceMom - goodluck on Thursday

AFM Not sure how long I will be visiting page most likely will stalk it a bit. Hoping since still bleeding I will not have a long dragged out miscarriage like last time. I am speaking to RE today to figure out what else can be done to help me out. I have 2 remaining donor frosties.

JIC - let us know how things go today.

 

AFM my last beta today was at 22,188, so we're continuing progress. I still feel like I'm just tracking numbers and observing symptoms and it doesn't really feel real.

Returnable it is real! Once you have that ultrasound and hear that fast little heartbeat you will know.

Afm just got home. My re is totally confused. Everything was textbook. Today everythin already gone. Which is actually a blessing in disguise as miscarriage dragged last time. I asked what we are missing if it is a lining issue but she does not think so. I am going to have an immunity/clotting blood test as soon as I can which is not for a couple months. Also inquired if even worth it based on embryo wuality and told 1) not discussing anything until results in 2) Embryos are both high quality
At this time going to look for a new job which I have been postponing for awhile.

Wishing all of you all the best.

JIC- thinking of you big hugs!

Cride - goodluck with beta

Return- goodluck with your scan on Tuesday

Choice- how are you doing?

AFM - I had my 5 week scan today only saw a gestational sac measuring at 5 weeks they said I am 5 week 3 days right now told me not worry I go back next Tuesday for another ultrasound, I also had my hcg done today so I’ll have the results tomorrow. Also told me I can stop endometrin now as my lining is good without it...here’s hoping it works out in the end
