@gillpill don't lose hope yet! 11dpo can still be too early! Maybe try again tomorrow and that line might pop up!
Thanks tortoise. Something inside knew it would be negative. I feel that this round didn't work for us. Horrible feeling like I failed dp. Fingers crossed you have a bfp this cycle and no stressful fake symptoms!
It's natural to feel like it's all resting on your shoulders but I'm sure your DP won't feel like you have failed anyone. It's definitely tricky because the chances of it working I think are something like 15-20% so it can really be all down to luck. Don't rule out the chance of a BFP... The sperm could have taken a little longer to get to the egg or maybe it implanted a little later or maybe you just won't get a BFP til there's more hcg. Even if this cycle isn't the one, it will happen 😊
Fingers crossed for sure. Having an emotional moment is all. Thanks for your support
Hey @gillpill I'm TNTH DP.
Sorry to hear about the BFN today but it's still early so don't lose hope. I have all my fingers crossed for you.
We have had 3 BFN cycles so far, 2 with DP and one with myself. I definitely don't feel like DP has failed me at all. I also don't think she feels like I failed her.
It's hard being on either end. When you're the one not having the transfer (or IUI in your case) it's hard not knowing what the other person is feeling. When you're the person on the other end, it's hard because you don't want to fail your DP and you can't help but have those feelings.
This whole TTC journey is so hard and tough. The main thing is to remember to communicate with each other. I feel like DP and I have become a lot closer with this. Even more now, I feel more in love with her and so much closer to her on new levels.
But anyway, best of luck!
And @rainbow road awesome news for your pickup and the fertilisation rate. Hope to hear good news on day 3!
As for everyone else, sorry for no personals! I haven't posted for quite a while. But good luck to all with EPU or transfers coming up, fingers crossed for all testing soon and good health to all pregnant
Nice to meet you beauty. Thanks for your words. I'm very emotional at the moment as I was hoping for even the faintest of faint lines to keep me optimistic. I can see you and tortoise are both very kind women and I hope after all the BFNs you guys have been through that luck finally finds you. DP doesn't want me testing so often because of this very thing happening but hard to stop myself getting so close! So lucky to have bubhub to talk to others about it. ☺️
Yeah testing often can be such a mind ****! It has screwed with ours a couple times. This time we are not testing until day of the blood test.
It is really such an emotional time. DP nicknamed the embryo today Panda Bear lol and when we showed me in the car, I just started crying. For absolutely no reason.
Thanks for the luck and the kind words. I hope this is your BFP too. We have only told DP's mum and that was because we had bad news with DP's egg collection and such, otherwise no one except BH would know! It's so lovely to have somewhere to come and vent and chat and everything like that

I agree! My mum knows and DPs brother and his wife but still not comfortable sharing symptoms and emotions with any of them. Love that I can get everything out on here and not have it come back a few days later. Keep us updated, had been following along the threads way back when we still had yet to see a specialist and decided to join in conversations closer to starting.
Will definitely keep you updated and I hope you keep us updated.
I have all my fingers and toes crossed for you both. I'm hoping to hear good news in a couple days time and if not, we will be your virtual shoulder to cry on!
It's okay to be emotional @gillpill. I'm so on edge today and either feel like I want to cry or scream. Our precious cargo has received the nickname panda bear because the others also got a name but part of me didn't want to get attached this time. Sometimes it's easier to be detached from what's happening. Hoping for some good news and will be checking each day 😊
