First things first midnite I am so sorry your in Beta hell. It really is awful. I hope you get answers soon. So a little bit of background. I have had 8 transfers. My first was a chemical and all the rest were BFN's. Wazza is my current specialist but I am not in Brisbane I see him remotely and fly in and out. So my first stim with Wazza I got 5 blasts I have transferred three over two transfers and all were Bfn. This transfer I transferred two, one good one and one was still not awake. So Wazza gets his patients to do three pregnyl boosters I cheated and only did two because I wanted to Poas I had little hope for a BFP and this was to be my last OE cycle. So I POAS I got a faint BFP at 8dp5dt based of this I went in for Beta at 12dp 5dt and my HCG was 21. I went again at 14dp5dt and it was 65. Wazza was not happy he likes to see it at 100 so I went again today at 19dp5dt and it was at 540. Wazza was put on the phone he asked me if I had had a scan yet. I told him no. He said he still wasn't happy and I need to get a scan late next week here in my town with an Ob. I spoke to his nurse and she said I can do bloods again late this week as well if I like. What do you ladies think. I love Wazza and his opinion means a lot to me so when he said he wsn't happy I felt very down but my numbers have been more than doubling? Any thoughts at all. Do you think that I should do a BT on Friday and that will give me a clearer idea. Wazza told me not to do anymore blood tests just do the scan but his nurse said I could. I think she felt sorry for me. Sorry for the long post and the conversation I have interrupted.I am just going slightly crazy my 2 ww has now been 3 weeks and now might be 5 weeks.

    Oh Luv, what an awful bloody limbo land to be in hey???

    The only way to really know what's going on is to have the scan as your embryo should be at a certain point by then. In fact, if it's late next week you have it, you should be able to see the yolk sac and fetal pole at the very least if not a heartbeat.

    You can do the BT if you want to see how your levels are doing as they should also be at a certain level too just like they should be now. They're not and that's why he's not happy. Now, it could be that you had a late implanter and that's why your levels are lagging behind, but again, you won't know until you have a scan.

    I'm one of Wazza's Ladies too and I skipped the last Pregnyl booster for the same reasons you did!!! Don't worry about that, it won't have hurt or harmed anything.

    Anyhoo Luv, I'm and sending prayers to the Universe that you've got a late implanter on board and that everything will turn out ok for you

    Actually Luv, women in their early 40's have an increased risk of naturally falling Preggo with twins anyway As we Lovelies inch ever closer to the "Big M" our ovaries can start firing off an extra egg every now and again increasing the chance of "double trouble" if you hit the fertilisation jackpot Cycle that it happens

    Other than your colleague with a loud hailer for a mouth, everything else sounded lovely for your M.T Can't believe your NT is next week too!!! Am sure everything's going to be just fine with the bubba's too
    Yes I know about the over 40 stats but I just can't be bothered explaining that to every person who asks quite frankly. I'm sick of people grilling me. And yes, I can't wait till the scan, not expecting any problems, they've been on track so far, perfectly on track. 😁
    Actually I have quite a few twins in my family too, grandma had twins, cousin had twins, second cousin had twins. at least if anyone asks if twins run in the family I can be honest about that

    @JulieMalooley - I can't believe a workmate would say that - some people are just idiots who speak first and think later - or just skip the thinking part.

    For the ladies interested in the recipe from yesterday, thanks to Taste Mag:-

    Ingredients:
    250g pkt frozen spinach, thawed with excess liquid squeezed out
    200g fresh ricotta
    120g goats fetta, crumbled
    100g coarsely grated tasty cheese
    3 spring onions, finely chopped
    3 eggs
    2 sheets puff pastry

    Method:
    Preheat oven to 220 degrees. Combine spinach, ricotta, fetta, tasty cheese, spring onions and TWO of the eggs in a bowl, and combine well.
    Cut a 24cm disc from each sheet of pastry. Place the first disc on a tray lined with baking paper. Spoon spinach mixture onto disc, leaving a clear 2cm border around the edge. It should only be 1/2 an inch thick, and there will be loads of mixture left over. Whisk the third egg and brush the edges of the pie with the egg wash.
    Find a glass with a 6cm opening and place in the middle of the second disc. gently press down to leave a circular indent but don't push through the pastry. Place the second disc on top of the pie and pinch the edges together to seal. Brush with egg wash.
    Take a sharp knife and cut from the indented ring out to the edge of the pie. Do the same three more times to ensure 4 even quarters, but DO NOT AT ANY TIME CUT THROUGH THE INDENTED RING!
    Cut each quarter into four even wedges, but again do not cut through the inner indented ring.
    Gently pick up each wedge and turn 90 degrees to the right to expose the filling. It's ok if it looks a bit messy - the puff pastry is very forgiving! Take a sharp knife and gently score the inner ring to decorate.
    Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes until golden and puffed.

    Serve with a nice salad on the side

    Good morning all,


    @Bongley, I hope you're feeling better today hon?


    @JulieM, I'm so happy your little surprise at work went well, barring the big-mouth who could have definitely benefited from @BIB stepping in and shoving a cupcake down her throat! That gave me a great laugh


    @BIB, I think it was you and @JulieM talking about the higher incidence of twins in the over 40's. I remember I had a double ovulation right before I got my BFP, so it must be pretty common. I had 3 ultrasounds done at various stages and I kid you not, each time the radiologist said to me "Which ovary did you ovulate from? I can't tell." Um, yeah - both!!!


    @Tahli, I hope you've recovered from your nuts day yesterday! I guess you are madly preparing for BFP Airlines now!


    @midnite, sorry about your BT hell love. It's hard, isn't it? I found it really upsetting knowing my HCG climbed to 45,000 even though I knew I wasn't pregnant. You just want/need a definitive answer either way so you can begin to cope. Thinking of you love


    @Infinity, hope you are ok? Haven't heard much from you but please know I do think of you


    AFM, working from home today, and then packing for a business trip tomorrow. I'll be back during the day today to catch up with you all, and then I'll be away until Thursday afternoon.


    Blossom

    Hi everyone

    Sorry for not doing any personals over the last few days, been busy packing, moving, cleaning etc and have only just got my internet and computer set up again. I've been following along though, so am up to speed with everyone!

    I'm definitely feeling better than last week. I think I'm able to recognise a pattern now, and a few days before AF my hormones must just completely crash out and I hit a very big depression. It is really quite bad and I have some very dark suicidal thoughts and dive very deep into the hole. But it does only seem to last a day or two and then I get AF and start coming out of it. I'm sure some of it is psychological as every AF means a BFN, but there is something fairly severe that kicks in for those couple of days. I'll have to really watch for it next month and get some strategies in place to cope.

    Anyway, we're all moved - not really "in" as such as the place looks like a junk heap - but at least we are out of the last place. This is an interim house, we've actually moved into one of my DHs investment properties and we'll do a little reno while we're here. We are in the process of building a huge shed on an acreage we bought a while ago, and we'll fit half of that out as a house and move there in a few months when its ready. Then I'm sure it will take a few years to build our dream home, but at least we'll be on the land and growing our own food and getting lots of animals. So declutter is my new buzz word as I don't want to do a move like we just did again!

    Moving was hell, and especially on this weekend when the temps were about 37 degrees. Grrrrrr! And I never want to help DH move his man cave again. How one man can collect so many used sponges, old rags, single gloves, used paint brushes, rusty nails, random tools, empty containers, and whatever other sh!t he manages to jumble all up in the garage is beyond me. I've said that once we move to the big shed, he has to put up really good shelving and sort his crap out - or I'll do it for him! And if I hear one more time "don't throw that out, it might come in handy some day" I'll shove the frigging piece of crap down his throat

    So I'm in the process of regrouping, sorting out the new place which feels like it will be a fresh new start, so hopefully I'll come up with a plan for work / business as well as thinking about a plan to get that BFP come hell or high water early in the new year.

    BTW I think another thing that sent me downhill was that we are in the legal process of trying to get more days custody with DSS, and DH came home last week after mediation and said "I don't care if I spend $50K to make sure I get more time with my son, I'm taking this all the way". But he hasn't spent one cent on IVF yet, and when I talked about the cost of doing DE in Cape Town he said no way "we're building a house (shed), we can't afford that." Double standard much?
