Hi ladies, I'm catching up again! Trying the write-as-you-go trick this time, so hopefully I will be a bit more coherent
@Mink and @Annie85 what you guys are going through sounds awful! This whole IVF thing is bad enough - I'm so sorry you're both dealing with pain on top of everything else. @Mink good luck for your test tomorrow! Fx
@HillDweller congrats on being PUPO! Great news that you've got two frozen! I was in the same situation last stim cycle and ended up with two being frozen too - it's a great feeling knowing that you've got back-ups
@ivf newbie also congrats re PUPO status! Two surviving is good, particularly for a first cycle. Hopefully the other one will get to freeze, and hopefully the one they transferred is "the one", so then you don't need a frozen one!! Cramps are also totally normal - I'm not sure whether they mean much but I've certainly had them after transfer (one was a chemical, the other a BFN but I had cramps both times).
@Flower78 yay for getting started! Hope this is a good cycle for you Thanks for doing the roll call - I can't believe there have been 6 BFPs already in this thread! Totally awesome!
@kdsd I hope the three you have going are super strong! We never have a good fertilization rate either - I know how nerve wracking it is waiting for transfer day!! It's great that your clinic does updates - mine said they don't look at them once they've put them in the incubator (or whatever it's called) so I can never get updates.
@katt1011 some people are so insensitive! That really sucks and I'm sorry that you're having to put up with your family not being supportive. Facebook is also really hard - sometimes it just seems full of baby photos and people complaining about some aspect of pregnancy. What I wouldn't give to be able to complain about morning sickness lol.
@mrsthomo good luck for your scan tomorrow! Mine's at 8am
@anulka I hope you don't get OHSS! Take care xo
@Lovebubs77 you are going from strength to strength!! Fantastic news! Best of luck for your scan.
@Xxsmileyxx93 welcome! I hope your cycle goes well. It is scary at first but not actually too bad in reality - I found the anticipation and the waiting the worst parts.
AFM I've got my first scan for FET tomorrow. Only CD10 so I'll probably have to go in again for a second one early next week. My last AF was super light so I'm hoping my lining this cycle is going to be ok.

And happy to share we got our BFP since day 3-4dp5dt and the line got darker today.
Still early days but hoping for the triple digits BT next Wednesday.
I got my BFN last Friday so you can add me to the hugs section I guess. See my FS on Monday to see if she thinks there is any tests needed on me before we stim again. Eager to get back into but also feeling really drained and let down by the whole process
@Mink It's okay. xx
I'm sorry you've not been feeling good today.
Will be thinking of you over the next couple of weeks! xo
Nice to meet you!
Wishing you all the best for your first cycle. xo
Hi @Staaz! Thank you! Best of luck for your scan tomorrow! Hope your lining is looking wonderful.
How are you feeling? xo
@babybeanie I'm sorry to hear about your bfn.
Sending you giant hugs and best wishes for your next cycle! xoxo
