    Yes...but if your line looks the same this Thurs/Fri before BT as it does today then I'd be classing that as a BFFP!!!😊👍

    If it starts getting lighter from tomorrow & keeps on heading that way & looking like your stick did yesterday (or even a bit lighter than that) by Fri's BT you'll know it's residual Pregnyl Luv.

    @Sue77 I second what blonde has said, so much to take in I can only imagine how daunting it must be but happy for you both that you have a plan. Is it too hard to find someone in Australia? I don't know anything about the surrogacy world but I have seen a section on the egg donation Aust. site so I know people do use surrogates here. Wishing you the best of luck with this and hope it gives you your take home baby.

    @winsor the line looks good to me and it's not an exact science anyway with the darkness factor. It's a hard call to keep testing or not, I don't ever keep testing after the first positives as I know it just stresses me out. I guess my losses have never been obvious with the hcg side of things so it wouldn't have told me anything. It's a stressful time and exciting!! So so hoping this one sticks

    @Caesardust hoping to see that line never disappear for you!! It would be awesome to see a string of new BFPs in here..c'mon embies

    norhing to much to report from me, our clinic appointment got moved from mid March to mid feb so we are only a couple of weeks away from that to discuss the next cycle and get the info on the de thing. Mind you with @winsor having luck with her older embie I'm wondering whether we give it more than one shot..where does it end though I guess, we have already done so many cycles but I guess when I add up the decent transfers we've had it hasn't been as many as it seems from the number of stims. Have lost some more weight and am feeling pretty great and DH is also loving the new lifestyle so it hasn't been a drama, quite the opposite. I'm trying to do more exercise to lift the weight loss some more as it's slow to move. I know it's coming off but I guess the transformation is not as dramatic as one would like -world wide problem lol!
    so I'm trying to work out whether we do the cycle when AF comes around the 22nd of March which won't quite be the full 3 months of clean living but epu would be around the first week of April or we wait to the April AF around the 18th and then we would have done 3.5months of it. What do you ladies think? I've been thinking March but I don't want to go too early and then all this not fully paying off (even if only psychologically). I'm going by the time it takes to produce new sperm /eggs

    Looking gorgeous @winsor!! I think going for a blood test at 14 dpo is a great idea to get your reference level then again at 16dpo. Do you have the nervous flutter of excitement?

    There we go @Caesardust that's exactly would your POAS should be looking like today! All that worrying for nothing!! Now you can enjoy watching it fade out then hopefully start getting darker again around Thursday. I have a feeling your little embryo is going to keep us in suspense until your blood test. Breath in, breath out, breath in, breath out. It's tricky with Pregnyl but exciting to know you can POAS at anytime and see a second line which is fun (or torture or both)!!!!

    @Tahli you're so right. I was so excited to see those two lines for the first time in my life. Brought tears to my eyes to dream that it may be possible for me one day. I'll hang on to the fact that at least I know hcg isn't rejected from my body unlike my embies. I want this too much. It's going to send me bonkers! I've got my hopes up way too high.

    @tuxcat good on you for sticking to the healthy detox. It's amazing the benefits a few months can have and it sounds like you guys are feeling pretty awesome. Ivf makes it hard to focus on much else so when that is out of the way it's amazing how much time you have to focus on your health and mind. So invigorating!! I hope it all makes for a positive start to another cycle for you.

    Well Luv...You still have to add in the time that you're stimming to the clean eating regime, so if that'll take you to 3 months then go for it, but if you want to be absolutely certain that you've definitely crossed the 3 month line, then wait the few extra weeks I reckon

    I'm a bit excited and nervous/wary that it might drop off. which is why I'll keep testing at least once a day so then I'll know when. if we get to official BT And beyond I think I'll relax a bit more (even though there's risk all along, it seems my biggest hurdle atm iykwim). but I am trying to push the waryiness feeling behind when it starts creeping in, and just enjoy being pg as if there wasn't a care in the world.

    tuxcat, ha it's funny you called this one my older embie. to me it's my youngest! as we started late. the 44.8yo one from oct was the oldest to work. well for a short time. I guess I think of it as with statistics, there has to be some in the whole range. good luck with your cycle. it sounds like you're increased healthiness will have an impact. and great your appt is pulled forwards. I have my fingers crossed for you both. see if dr li can do your transfer & be lucky for you too (not that I think he did anything different to the others, just supersition! )
