JB glad your BT results came back good I also think I'm having twinges etc but like you think i might be imaging them!!
AngeQ not 100% sure what the pineapple does but the core supposedly contains a vitamin that can help with after ET
to anyone else I missed
AFM I am feeling so tired!! this waiting is driving me crazy!!! I just want to know if my little "Petrie" (our nickname for our embryo, is making itself nice and cosy and I'll get to meet them in 8 months time!! I had AF like cramps yesterday and google says it can be a sign of implantation, so everything is crossed!!

hi ladies, the pineapple core contains bromelain which is supposed to aid in implantation. You're not supposed to eat lots of it though as the acidity from the pineapple isn't that great for you in large doses.
they say to cut a pineapple into 5 slices, cut out the core from each slice and eat one a day from ET(give DH/DP the flesh to eat or have a little yourself).
A couple of ladies on the Sep/Oct thread ate 6 brazil nuts a day and got a BFP, so you know what I'll be doing this time

Thanks ladies guess I'm off to get some Brazil nuts.
I had the same feeling yesterday sparkle monkey how far along are you? I transferred 1 day 2 embryo last Saturday. Blood rest is on the 18th.
Totally agree jb about tuning into your body. Also think it stays forever cause last time I ovulated I could distinctly feel when it was happening and what side it was on ( have never been able to feel this before).

quick update - beta result of just over 15,100 at 5 weeks and 2 days pregnant. This is a huge relief they have risen so much, I never got to numbers this high in either of my m/c's - even the one that was at 8 weeks. I will have another bt on the 15/11, then first scan on 25/11, which seems so far away *waiting, waiting

stillfuntryin - I only transferred one, though I have been looking (eek google) at HCG ranges and it does seem high for a single ! my EDD is July 9. There is already a thread started for IVF July due date babies - I looked at the "normal" due date thread but realised very quickly I couldn't put myself through that - some people just don't realise how lucky they are
