Well, I went to my GP. She took blood & told me they do a baseline beta, but that's it - they'd only let me know to come back for more testing if the hCG looks low for 14dpo. She's also confirmed an estimate due date based on the IVF stuff, which is April 22nd. (WEIRD.)
Otherwise, I felt gross today but still nervous. Peeing on sticks constantly.
MrsJag - are your tests getting slightly darker each day? I am sure you have nothing to worry about at all. Your embie looked beautiful and I sure its making itself right at home in there I reckon you should ask WFC on Wednesday if you can get a blood test done. No harm in asking.
How is everyone else going?
AFM - I have decided to jump ship. I'm off to see Dr Fong on Thursday. My FS has not even called me yet after my sucky news on Saturday. I left a message this morning and she was in today and they said they would ask her to call me but she didn't call. The receptionist was also really unhelpful and wouldn't book me in to see her as they are too busy and she might not want to see me and might just want to do it over the phone. Ummmmmm hello - My hubby and I have questions!! She never gives us any time (10 mins first appointment and 5 mins last appointment and doesn't explain anything).
I hope Dr Fong is much better. I liked her lots when I met her at transfer. Hopefully she can give us more time and actually explain things. Fingers crossed.
WFC however have been great. Chris called me this morning and then Steve called me and spoke to me for 30 mins about the eggs, sperm etc, made me feel a bit better and really took the time to explain things so feel much better after speaking to him. Still nervous about it happening again bugt hopeful that it won't.

Just popping in to say congrats Mrs Jag!!
Lilly-So sorry about you 0 fertilising I understand the shock and disappointment you would be feeling Who is your FS? You can PM me if you like. I'm curious because they sound incredibly slack!!!
Lilly, they are gradually getting darker. I'm still nervous though. It's so early and I'm cramping a lot.
I hope you got some answers today, Steve is great, I wish I had him on speed dial.
I'd love to know who your old FS is, I don't want to waste my time, I feel like I'm on a time limit, it's been nearly 5 years TTC and my eggs are older than me (they tell me this everytime I have an US) so I have no time to waste, can't even take a break really. Please pm me if you prefer.
Been feeling very down lately, hope I start picking myself up soon
Mrsjag – I’m still getting this big smile spread across my face when I see those two lines on your signature. When do you get your blood results back?
Lily – I can’t believe your current FS has been so short with you. I would be very interested to know who it was also – My FS was really good with us last week – we were in there for about ½ hour and chatted our way through things. I hope you have nothing but positive experiences with Dr Fong.
MTC – I hope you start feeling better soon. You are a wonderful person and deserve all the happiness in the world. Xxx
Kylee – I hope your ok hun – been thinking of you lately. xx
AFM – Just plugging along for the last week and a bit at work – back into the pool this week – Yipee!! Metformin is killing me – I cant stop going to the toilet!!! I hope it helps me loose some weight though..
Hi to everyone – Hope you are all having a good start to the week.
Metformin made me very queasy tummy wise the first few months.
Here are this morning's lines.
Was going to not mention the name as I didn't want to sound like I was putting her down if other girls like her and she does a good job for them.
But it's Dr Gayer. She seems lovely, has been nice the two seconds we have been able to spend with her. But has absolutely no time for us at all really. Its in and out in two seconds, didn't explain anything and didn't let us ask questions. I still haven't heard from her after the no fertalisition on Saturday even though I called yesterday!
Hopefully Dr Fong has more time to spend on her patients and lets us ask questions etc. We have been through so much already. Just really want someone who actually cares.
MrsJag - looking good. How exciting for you guys
