    AWESOME @Bongley!!! and that there is the difference between 40something year old eggs and young ones hey. Freakin amazing!!! Im so thrilled for you, Im thinking you're going to get your baby in all that lot.

    and @Fudge09 awesome this mornings looks great too..now stop testing!! hehe. Im so happy for you!

    now who's next?!!! midnite?? ...skyler??


    I went to a lunch on sunday with all my school friends that I'm still pretty close with although have been avoiding them for a bit and i was the only one who doesnt have kids and funnily enough the only kid that was there with us kept coming over to me only and wanting cuddles. How ironic! Ive had lots of moments where Ive thought I will have to cut ties with them at some point as on so many levels I have nothing to contribute to their kids conversations. And for most of them thats really mainly what they talk about as thats their world. At least with the group of girls I spend most of my time with, theres more of us that don't have kids and want them so you don't feel like such a loser!! ..just a vent...

    Great news Bongley. To already have 3 biopsied on the morning of day 5 is pretty darn impressive. I am sure the 4th will be biopsied tomorrow.

    Fudge that line is looking so much darker today. Good luck with your blood test tomorrow.

    @tuxcat This was my biggest fear when I was going through IVF before I had my son. My friends had started to get up the duff and I was very worried that I would not be able to sit through conversations about pregnancy and babies and prams and sleepless nights and schools and so I would lose my gorgeous friends through pushing them away.

    I am very aware of the conversations we have now in front of our other friends going through IVF and I try to change the subject. I do slip now and then and spend 20 minutes discussing birth stories then I just think to myself, oh for god's sake shut up, this would have really hurt to listen to. I hope we have lots of other things to talk about anyway, not just kids.

    @Corbes They say a level of 25mlU/ml is a BFP. A level between 5-25mlU/ml is a "maybe" requiring a follow up BT.

    Here's a link to a site I used when I got my BFP Luv:

    http://www.babymed.com/is-my-hcg-blood-level-normal

    Obviously it depends on how many dpo you really are as to what level to expect. I think in your case it'll be a case of firstly confirming there is HCG in your system regardless of the amount at this early stage then doing a repeat maybe on Fri to check on the rise

    Yeah look I know its my issue and if it was the other way around I'd be just the same. I think because I don't see them that often I always feel the elephant in the room is bigger than ever because its like another year has gone by and Im still not pregnant. My BFF from school always asks me about whether we have had any luck or are still doing IVF and it always shakes me up and makes me feel like sh!t. You get so far with dealing with it all on your own and then in an instant someone can make you feel like you haven't progressed a bit. I have to keep telling her its not the only focus in my life. I since realised that she projects how she would be if it were her on to me, she married into the Italian family where kids and big families are everything and gave up all her interests to focus on his. So if she hadn't of been able to have kids she'd be a mess. Ive always had my creative stuff so if all else fails I have an outlet I guess. Sometimes I just want to go and run away from everyone and start again where no one knows me!!!

    @Corbes I think the FRERs show 25ml so it should be a positive with bloods I would expect. @BlondeinBrisvegas is our Pharmacist on call in here so looks like she's got it sussed!

    Im still gobsmacked you got a BFP so early! I always thought that was a myth!
