Bella- Oh hun, I really had hoped it was going to be the real thing for you and not a bittersweet chemical pg . I was exactly like you & wanted it over & done with once I knew it was not viable. My level was 34 at 18dpo (2nd BT) and went back to zero one week later. Then AF showed in a bad way. As much as I knew it had been a step forward, it still tore me up when I actually lost the pregnancy. Take good care of yourself .
Catemer- I really hope it wasn't DP's AF that showed and you have a BFP today! Everything crossed for an awesome surprise!
Paddlegirl- gee you had a rough day on Friday you poor thing! Hope it all got sorted & you didn't miss any doses. I had hoped for news of a positive HPT from you over the weekend, but guess we'll have to hang out for your BT today. Good luck!
Nattie- one frostie is great going sweetie. I know you're disappointed but anything in the freezer really is a bonus, especially when you had so few embies to start with. Hopefully you won't be needing it for a long time & you've got a BFP brewing away!
EO- I hope the time flies til your NT scan & 12 wk milestone, and I hope after that some of your anxiety will loosen up. One by one you're clearing those hurdles hun, this bub IS coming . Thanks for your sweet words. Definitely will be seeing Dr R after BFN confirmation. I only had the one US & my lining was 9mm at CD12. I presume it would've got over 10mm by FET day on CD18.
Wishing- Isn't it so comforting to be told there is definitely a child in your future? You were lucky to get a specific idea of the timing, I really hope its the 5 wks, but 5 months is still very close! All I know is that I'm supposed to find out I'm pregnant "soon after a promotion". I'm starting my higher-level role mid April, so I suppose any cycle from here on in could be my lucky one!
Peonies- Hope all is tracking well in the countdown to your big day for EPU and microdissection!
Alison- sorry to hear they've found extensive endo and you'll be needing surgery before you can cycle again. I know the waiting sucks, but it will be worth it when you bub has a 'tuned up' new home to settle into. Yay for getting onto DHEA in the meantime as well, I'm really excited for your next attempt!
Mac8- good luck for your 1st BT after starting FSH. Grow follies grow!
Lillac- Yay for getting all the paperwork done to get started! I really hope your IVF journey is super-short & doesn't become a saga like mine, I hope my diary hasn't depressed you .
TTHC- thanks darl, I'd love to think the BT will give a different answer, but FRER has never got it wrong before. My chem pg was already showing up at 13dpo, so to having BFN at 14dpo is pretty convincing.
Traveler- yes, my head is spinning. I'm out of ideas, we really did everything this time. Really hating IVF right now.
Quartz & Bebe- thanks for your commiserations
Hi to everyone else
AFM- DH & I had a beautiful weekend away, our camping spot was right on the waterfront & the weather couldn't have been more perfect. Once I got over the initial freak-out of not having my smart phone glued to me, I actually did relax properly. So much so that when we got home I didn't even care to POAS, which is unbelievable for me! I only did it because I need to prepare myself in advance of the FN call, and also so DH & I find out together. I'm still shell-shocked that it was BFN. So I'm going to let myself sook, grieve & be mad at the world til I'm all cried out...
