Oh @JeB we are doing our bt the same day!
@Hopeful37 - Next Thursday will hopefully roll around before you know it! @allykat111 - it's always going to hurt when you see other people getting to experience your dream. You can always come back at any time when you are feeling up to it.
@rainbow road - I would have felt nervous too but you are 100% right, cell loss is normal. It's harder to believe the truth when you are so worried something bad might happen. Stay positive, you deserve this!
@sunny79 sorry you are out. It's so hard because the statics really aren't in our favour! Less than half of us on here are going to be successful. I wish there was something we could do that would make every cycle a sure thing.
I'm so sorry baby beanie, and ally cat I totally understand. It's such a hard journey 😟 I can't work out how to respond to everyone individually but I'm reading along and crossing fingers for you all.
As for me, I'm 4dp6dt. I'm too terrified to test for fear of it not working. I know I'm going to be really upset if it doesn't - just polished off a block of chocolate. Watching the Bachelorette. Being very Bridget Jones tonight 😳
Very true pillowhead xx
I really battled on regular TTC sites! Nobody understands what it's like to go month after month seeing negative tests and then when you do get pregnant you miscarry, take the positive outcomes as hope that this process works and if you are second guessing your specialist maybe it's time to change clinics, i feel extremely lucky for 2 out of 3 transfers being successful but I'm along way from being out of the woods! I feel incredibly lucky to have my son and i dont take a second for granted! When I started this process a lady said to me IVF is a marathon not a sprint, you need to be prepared for that! And that has stuck with me. That may have even been @Amps
Anyway the point I'm trying to make is don't be too discouraged, the day you meet your child it will all make sense as to what you had to go through to get them! If i hadn't lost my babies and done ivf and had a failed transfer i would have never had my little boy!
Chin up ladies this will happen!!!
Follicles have grown a bit by E2 is still very low (2500). EPU is friday but I'm not really expecting to get very much. My only hope is 1 to transfer
So sorry to hear that there hasn't been any positive news for you @babybeanie @allykat111 and @sunny79, I'm really hoping for better news next time I check in!
@pillowhead, I'm settling back in ok. It was my first day back at work today so that was a bit of a shock to the system. Thankfully I only do 2.5 days since I have my little one.
My af is due in about a week and a half but even though that is soon, all I'll be doing is calling the clinic to let them know it's arrived. There will be nothing more to do but sit back and wait for a few more weeks yet, which will feel a bit odd given how much went into my first cycle. I sounds like your cycle is flowing nice and quickly like mine did, all the best for Friday!
Good luck to all those who are thinking of testing soon. @kate124 you sound like how I was last time round. I was so positive the first couple of days after transfer but then about half way through the 2ww, I remember sitting on my lounge one night bawling as I was so convinced it didn't work and that the whole cycle had been a waste. Thankfully it was a different story. I finally plucked up the courage to test the day before my BT and there is was, I was shaking and crying with disbelief.
I completely agree with @stillfuntryin. Once I'd been ttc for a bit and nothing was happening, I really couldn't imagine myself ever getting a bfp, being pregnant or getting that miracle but it does happen ladies- it happened to me afterall! I'm happy to let you all know that all the ladies from my last cycle thread with my dd that kept in contact with us have all either since had babies or are pregnant (some are even onto #2) so there isn't one left who isn't going to be a mum and some have really defied the odds to get there. The day my dd was born is still the most overwhelming and surreal day of my life and even though I didn't have a long Ivf journey- all the worry, tears and heartache of thinking I'd never get there is almost forgotten and its definitely more worthwhile than anything I've ever done. I'll be hoping beyond hope that you all get your dream one day and hopefully sooner rather than later.

@sunny79 my profile pic is my dd's first ever photo as a 5 day old embryo and was taken almost exactly two years ago. I've seen quite a few embryo pics and it's interesting how they all look so different. I'm sorry to hear you've had so many doubts but I can understand that it can sometimes feel hard to keep some faith
