Evelynmoo- it did come through, was just on mobile today and couldn't work out how to get into my messages until I got home on my laptop.....I'm not very tech savvy!!
Congrats apples1234 ! I got my bfp faint at 6 days past five day transfer .. Just had my second beta today . Six days ago it was 202 and now 2871 ? That's more than doubling ? Is that ok ? @corzjayne mine at four weeks told me to stop p4 pessaries and if I wanted more bt I had to pay .. I rang my fs as I was worried about my p4 levels and stayed on pessaries .. I have a bt each week untill my scan at seven weeks.
All the best for tomorrow @Hopeful37 and @ttc1981 I'll be thinking of you both and hoping for lots of nice healthy eggs
Great news @Apples1234 when are you expecting your transfer?
Sorry to hear @Evelynmoo huge hugs for you! Please take care xx
@itsgunnahappen that is definitely within normal range- congrats on your growing numbers, yay!
@corzjayne I was given 3 blood tests but the last one was at 5 weeks pregnant and then I had a 3 weeks wait til my scan. They did say if I felt nervous at anytime in the 3 weeks that I could come back in as some people like weekly tests but I didn't. I wasn't sure if I'd overthink the numbers. I was a bit of a nervous wreck for my scan though so the bloods may not have been a bad idea
@stillfuntryin that would have been so devastating to get that news at your scan. Your numbers look like you can be really confident this time.
Welcome @Mink and sorry to hear that you've had such a traumatic time. I agree that most likely if it's going to stick, it's going to but a good frame of mind can only be a plus. Do your best to relax as much as you can but definitely easier said than done. Fingers crossed for a bfp and a stress free pregnancy.
I was blessed with an easy pregnancy and birth. My active labour was put down as only 1hr 19mins with my daughter but that would have been the time from waters breaking til pushing stage as I pushed for that amount of time again. I really couldn't complain though and I felt so nervous giving birth as I can't even get my legs waxed without dying of pain. The aftermath was the worst part for me as everything was so achy from tearing and being cut but all well worth it, of course.

Ok thanks! So sorry to hear your BFN official. Back on the horse and try again. I know the pain. Been IVFing for 15 months now
Re weekly bloods: it's totally up to your clinics protocol, mine are big on monitoring through your whole cycle so I'm happy with that!
My labour from waters breaking to bubs being out was 7hrs with 2hrs of unsuccessful pushing, i had an episiotomy which also got infected and had horrible pain for at least 8 weeks, it was 5 months after and sex was still painful
Subbing - it's interesting to see how much the clinic protocols vary post BFP with the number of scans, blood tests and progesterone maintenance.
Gonal F injections don't even hurt! Thinking that the orgalutran are going to maybe sting.
