Sorry MARTTC, I didn't read your signature. Hugs xxxx
WOW some people have positives - great news - gives me hope that this IVF stuff actually does work!
congrats to all and hugs to those who arent.
We are officially having a FET on wednesday 23rd at 12 o'clock. Can someone update me to FET 23rd of may and then to the 2WW?
Im really worried the 2 embies aka "frozen princesses" wont thaw well and well have to start all over again....
can any one tell me how they are getting their FS to transfer 2 embies - mine flatly refuses says risk of twins etc etc... and im only 37 so too young!! (I laughed at that one) - she said that she would only transfer 2 after the age of 40. - so does she want me to keep spending money till im 40 and then transfer 2 - i'm thoroughly convinced that transferring one doesnt work...
AMPS: "keep the faith" - so hard to stay positive - after my last biocmhemcal pregnancy in april (which we miscarried at 5 weeks) i didnt get out of bed for 3 days - cried and cried and cried....its so hard but eventually i decided that IVF is tough and we have the right to cry, scream, be sad, angry and we shouldnt feel bad about those perfectly normal reactions. We cant be positive all the time - so allow yourself a few days/hours/weeks even to feel what youre feeling, dont feel guilty for not being positive all the time. But decide in yourself when enough is enough and to reenter the world positive. I cant tell you how to keep the faith and be positive but all i know is that it will eventually work, that eventually you'll have a baby and what you've been through to get that little bundle of joy you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy. IVF is hard. Allow yourself that. We have to hold on to that thought that eventually will work or we'll all go mad! Hugs to you...[/QUOT
Hi Gampa - I can't believe your FS won't allow you to implant two. My FS will do it over age 35 or when there is a suitable situation ie low number of egg reserves and small number of eggs collected such as if you get two fertilize but no frosties. All I had to do was sign the transfer authority to acknowledge the transfer of two - I'm 38 and he first did two for me at 35. Maybe worth another discussion with your FS to discuss your overall concerns, not sure of your history/situation though. Good luck with your FET tomorrow
hcg 13, not classed as positive, will go for another bt tomorrow at clinic.
am hoping someone knows or is one of the lucky ones who started so low then made it all the way through.
Well we got call today to say that our snow princess has thawed well. We are set for transfer tomorrow at 12 lunch.
A big relief.
amps: your HCG level of 13 may be ok. So long as rising by double each 48 hours. So 48 hours from you last blood test it must be 30 or thereabouts. Did you receive a pregnayl trigger shot? Sometimes they can give false positives though
I also had a low HCG but did rise appropriately with time until we miscarried. Best of luck such a ha rd time this waiting x
Four fertilised, one abnormal so only have 3, so devestated
