@Annerley Big congrats!! You deserved this. It must be good batch of embryos you have on ice! They are all successful! I'm happy for you. Hope you get good number on BT Have you had any symptoms to move you to POAS?
@Tanej78 Best of luck!
@woof5105 @Maxwellsmum @MrsSMS I hope everything turns to the way you want to. I totally agree to see BFN rather than losing it. It had taken me 2.5 weeks to wait for my level down to neg. on my last miscarriage. It was awful and don't want to experience that again. Best of luck to you!
Wish you all merry X'Mas and happy new year! Congrats again for people who get the greatest gift for X'mas. Hope 2016 is the year for us all....😊
@Tanej78 good luck!
I'm surprised at myself to be honest. I'm not the least bit addicted to testing. I could count on my fingers the number of times I've poas and when I got my last bfp, I only tested the once. I was planning to test tomorrow morning before DH left for work so he'd know the news without having to wait until after work tomorrow afternoon but I caved. Since Friday, I had a slight feeling it didn't work and mostly felt normal all weekend so then thought it wasn't going to work. I went to the Sound of Music the musical yesterday and had to hold back the tears a few times. The big family with lots of kids got me but I'm not usually a teary person. It got me wondering as I went to a funeral when I was 5 weeks pregnant with DD and was a mess. The funeral was for DHs nan and I felt bad as I was blubbering more than him and his cousins. I think his aunties were surprised but they didn't know I was pregnant. So the tears yesterday over a musical got me wondering.
I had a brief thought of testing first up this morning but was trying to wait just one more day. Since last night I've had a really full feeling in my lower belly and my boobs were a little sore, which lead to my overwhelming feeling on the way back from swimming lessons this morning that I was just going to do it. DD fell asleep when we got home so it was window of time to do it with no interruptions. I was shaking and so nervous when I was trying to test! I felt a little crazy doing it when I hadn't been holding for very long but I had two tests in my drawer and figured at 12dpo there should be something.
Three hours til DH will be home to find out.
@Legally Brown today my symptoms feel very similar to when I was pregnant with DD but I was on Crinone last time so didn't really know what to expect this time around but those feelings gave me the urge to do it! Both times I've tested after Ivf, I've gotten myself into the headspace that I have to be ok to move on to the next embryo, if it wasn't meant to be one and then I test. I doubt I'd really take the news that easily if it wasn't to be but I just hate getting my hopes up too much. I'm feeling extremely blessed at the moment- thank goodness for those 28 year old eggs!!

Huge congrats @Leachpeach!!
My BT is so early at 8dp5dt tomorrow so have no idea what level to expect. I was 160 with DD but that was 9dp5dt. I had three betas with DD and the closest one I got to your figure was a beta of 950 but that was on 12dp5dt.
What day are you up to now? Did you happen to put two in?
Just checking in on way home from EPU. Got 8 eggs, was hoping for more. We got 7 last cycle but FS changed up the meds hoping to get more. Satisfied with 8 though. Crossing fingers to see how many fertilise.
Going home to crash, for a bit then I'll catch up on updates
