    thanks @Bongley
    @Molros Congrats thats amazing news!! Im sorry you've got so much other family stuff going on too, its stressful and adds to your anxiety too. Its hard staying positive when so much has happened so your worries are normal, none of us think you're a fraud!!! I know in early pregnancy stress is huge, but you're very welcome to hang out in here for support. I think without this forum I'd be a head case by now and Im sure many others feel the same way.

    Your hcg is high but its within normal levels so try and put the molar thing out the window. Have you expressed your concerns with your FS? They might be able to calm your nerves if you tell them. How many did you transfer? Could twins be a possibility? Anyway hcg doesnt mean much on its own as levels are so different for each person.

    Im hoping this is your lucky bubsicle and sending you a big hug for support

    Thanks tuxcat and Bongley. Bongley this was my first stim. I have been pregnant 5 times (naturally and all miscarried) so we were trying IVF for answers and I think the answer is crappy embryos. A few of my miscarriages have been ok chromosomally but I guess there is a weakness somewhere.

    Tuxcat sorry you didn't have better news but I hope it does mean that you will get 2 eggs.

    Molros congratulations on your pregnancy and don't stress about hcg levels. I once had a level of around 600 at the same stage as you and it wasn't molar. I know how easy it is to stress though. Sorry to hear about all the health issues in your family and I hope things improve for all of you soon.

    @calypso75 im sorry to hear your news. Im sending hugs. I know it wont help though as nothing does.My bt is tuesday or even Wednesday now due to pregnyl boosters. @Tinachris is up next i believe on monday? @tuxcat x2 to x3 follicles is all i usually get to luv with no eggs to 3 eggs at epu the usual. Its tough but they tell me quality over quantity fx for a golden egg. @aime999 yes bizzare dreams but mine are always about pregnancy and babies. Last night i was searching continuously for x2 heart beats cause the one found at 140bpm wasnt right bahaha. @Molros congrats twins?

    Hi to everyone else

    @tuxcat that sounds like my first cycle - only left side worked and that had Gracie as the 2nd embryo, so you could be in with a chance. for good eggs & a 100% cycle here on in! I remember being happy at the time as it was double the chance of a natural cycle (& I didn't know what #s to expect). glad to hear your work with US is going well - great news

    Yeah its funny isn't it, I was only thinking about the first coupe of times that I was so blissfully unaware of things, I just thought it was going to work!!! how wrong Ive been so far

    Yes Im just hoping that all the good things Ive been doing help that golden egg work FFS

    I thought I could see follicles on the right but she had a really hard time actually seeing the ovary. Oh well it is what it is. chances better than natural so thats what I have to focus on

    Hows your EDA stuff going? I haven't had much time to get on there properly

Hello to all the other lovely ladies

    I have just gone and had my hcg blood test. AF started last night so it felt like the worlds most pointless test. Anyway I guess it had to be done. We now have to decide if we stim again or move on.
    @Tinachris and @infinity888 I hope you have better luck than me on Monday.

    Stupid frucking AF!!!!!

    Am so sorry Luv

    are you ready for my news........ 2 follicles on the left and after trying hard to find the right there was only a tiny one. 12 & 14 so my body's sheer brilliance has done it again!! I was waiting for my scan getting nervous and then I just thought, stop. enough. you cant do anything more. I was prepared for a cr@p scan so there it was. My only positive thought was that they were close together so hoping that means 2. Its funny how ready you are for donor eggs and then you start doing one more OE cycle and you kind of forget that the DE thing is there. So I will wait for the results phone call and see what they have to say. Ive been to epu with 1 egg before so Im guessing it will just continue as business as usual. Just get it over with really. uurggh.

    on the upside I have a sicilian blood orange and chocolate ice cream in the freezer

    and my new work arrangement with the US studio is going really well !!!

    Fruck U IVF

    Aaaaah.....Sh!t Luv!!! Was hoping for a P.B. for you!!!!

    Mmmm...I have to say, it does sound like there could be 2 eggs on the go in those follicles!!! They're pretty close together in terms of size

    The ice cream sounds delish!! Post a pic of it when you have some as I've never seen it before

    Glad to hear the work arrangement is working out so well for you too!!!

    Yep, F.U. IVF right up the back passage!!!!!

    I haven't been through anything close to what most of you girls have been through in your IVF journeys and am in awe of you all. I am a bit of a control freak by nature and didn't really cope that well with the not knowing and also knowing that I couldn't influence the outcome. My sisters seem to just fall pregnant just being in the same room as their partners and one fell pregnant ' by accident' when I was going my stim cycle, the other fell pregnant 'by accident' when I had my failed FET (which I only found out about after the abortion) and then AGAIN when I was pregnant with my DD. So my first pregnancy I had to share with my sister who was having her fourth 'unplanned' which I know may sound selfish, but I didn't want to share.

    I also feel like a fraud to you all as I have just had another FET and found out last week it was successful. Although to be honest I am quietly freaking out as the hcg was 772 11dp5dt so I am terrified it's going to be a molar pregnancy. I had another BT this am and should know in a few hours but that's all my heads been occupied with the last week. FIL is in hospital with what is more than likely cancer and my dad in the UK has just had massive spinal surgery which we are not sure if he has permanent damage from.

    Thanks for listening and I would like to stay and cheer you all on if you don't mind xx

    Congratulations Luv!!!!

    772 at 16dpo?? I'd be more worried about twins than a molar!!!

    No, you don't sound selfish for not wanting to share either. I felt the same way when I got my BFFP and found out my cousin was preggo with her 3rd about a month later. I thought "why can't I just have this one thing to myself FFS's!?!?". I think after all we go through to get our BFFP's regardless of whether our journey is shorter or longer than another's, we just want the limelight to ourselves once we finally get there!!!! And rightly so too I say!!!

    Am sorry to hear about your FIL. Know all too well about the cancer journey with a parent I really hope it's not Luv

    Sorry to hear about your Dad too!!! I know that permanent damage is one of the risks of spinal surgery. his spine/nerves are just in some kind of shock and he'll be ok.

    Will send a prayer for them both. Shall look out for your update from this morning's BT!!! Make sure you post the levels for us all to analyze!!!
