So I have my blood test on Wednesday! These past two weeks have been really easy I haven't really thought about it, I've just been working and trying not to focus on it too much. "Out of sight out of mind" approach I think. It seemed to be working until Friday when I was at woolies and I brought a pregnancy test... It was 7 days post transfer, I was going to wait until 14/02 but of course I took it as soon as I got home, it came up a very quick negative I wasn't going to tell my husband as I knew he'd be so upset/angry.. But I did and of course he was so upset. I felt so guilty one for taking it, two for buying it and three for not waiting. Now these past few days have been a killer. I am due for my periods 16/02 and for some reason my mind is telling me I'll be having them and that I won't be pregant. I'm trying to stay positive so if it doesn't work we have two more to try but the other part is telling me it's my fault.. Sorry for the blurt of drama I just need to vent to people who understand, my friends don't, my husband is just a male and doesn't like to talk about it..
If it hasn't worked, it's from nothing you've done or haven't done. It took us 7 transfers (and 3 EPUs) to get pregnant. I hope it has worked for you, but if it hasn't, you have 2 more good shots at it. And both my BFPs have been from a frozen transfer - I think personally I respond better when I haven't been on the stimm drugs.
Vent here all you need. IVF is hard, and even though hubby goes through it with you, it's different for them. Please don't blame yourself for anything though. Remember IVF is still a numbers game, a few lucky ones get pregnant first time, but most don't. Chin up. If it doesn't work, have a cry (I sure did), and do something nice for yourself. Even if it's a nice dinner & some wine. Or a bath & some ice cream. Don't be too hard on yourself x
Henzell so sorry to hear you're having a tough time. The TWW is torture and we all go a little crazy. Very wise words from petal. Wish you all the best for your BT today but if it's not to be this time you still have those beautiful possibilities in the freezer. Be kind to yourself xoxo
I just received my phone call and I'm pregnant, I burst out in tears. I can't remember but I think she said my levels were 81 or 83 is that normal, she also said that I have another test on Friday. I can't believe on our first IVF try it has worked ☺️☺️☺️ Thank you again ladies ! Let's hope that I carry all the way will be keeping you all posted on our journey!
So happy for you!!
Here's a link that will help you Friday when you get your levels. It also shows you the big difference in levels that are ok for how far along you are.
That's fantastic news Henzell! So exciting! Good luck with your next test. ..
I am in the 2ww and 8dpo from ttc naturally and have noticed daily white milky cervical mucous (sorry if tmi) since I ovulated, which is really unusual for me. ..did anyone get this as an early pregnancy sign? Apparently it's really common and can be a sign of increased progesterone...
Thank you! Means a lot, second blood test is tomorrow morning. Are you on crinone? I am and I find that comes out when I wipe or in the shower it looks quiet clumpy and tissue like consistency. Apparently that's left over crinone gel ☺️ My symptoms have been unbelievably sore and swollen breast, going to the toilet alllll the time and major heart burn 😣
