2nd Beta Numbers

I was more nervous today about my 2nd beta then I was about the 1st!
My fear of course was, that the level had dropped and not doubled like it was supposed to.
Nurse called around 12:45 to tell me I can start celebrating now, my 1st beta on Wed
came in at 274 and Today 2days later it came in at 688! So it more than doubled a little.
It is doubling at 1.50 days instead of every 2 days, so I think its safe to say I am definately
pregnant, I stiil cant get used to being able to say that word, while talking about myself!
Lat beta with RE is on Monday 3/3rd and then 1st ultrasound will be the following week.

Well Heres the miracle!

I started testing way to early @ 4dp5dt and kept getting BFN's!!!
I was so disgusted and sad each time I saw only one line. Thursday I started cramping
just like aunt flow was coming, and then Friday night I was spotting. I couldnt do anything
but cry for hours because I knew yet again I was not pregnant! Something told me Saturday morning @ 8dp5dt to test again and low and behold there it was the most beautiful two pink lines I ever have seen! It was very,very faint, so I went & bought a digital and it said Pregnant!!
So at this point I sill dont believe it and have to test each day but the lines on Saturday night doubled in color form the one in the morning! I have my beta Wed the 27th at 8:00am and am soo nervous, I just cant wait to hear those numbers I am praying they are high and all is good in the world!!!!

Blastocyst Transfer

Well had my 5day transfer of two perfectly healthy blastocysts yesterday. My RE
being as kind as she is and wanting to give me the best odds possible, decided to throw in assisted hatching at no cost. I was very happy about that until reading that this procedure gives you a higher chance at twinning! So the 2 that were transferred could turn into 3 or even 4 not that it happens often but its a possibility. The transfer went great and now I am in the dreaded 2ww!! I will have beta on 2/28th but you know I wont be able to resist the HPT's the whole time.

New Update

Wow, its been a long time since I have posted. Just wanted to update my blog for those of you that read this. I started my 2nd IVF cycle @ the very end of January. Things were progressing slowly with the Stims even though my RE put me on a new protocol:( I had egg retrieval on Feb 10th and they ended up getting 12 eggs but only 10 were mature & 7 fertilized. I was very dissapointed to say the least, because my 1st cycle I had 12 mature eggs and all 12 fertilized. Well what I learend was that all cycles are 100% different and it really is quality that matters over quantity. I was assuming I would be doing a day 3 transfer because of the limited amount of embryos, I recieved a phone call on day 3 saying that all of our embies are still thriving and they are making it a 5 day transfer. I was a little concerned because I was worried that not many of them would make it to day 5, my RE says I worry way to much, and she told me we have some "spanking embryos" this time, 6 out of the 7 are the highest grade you can get! Well our transfer day is Friday the 15th of Feb @ 11:30. I am super duper excited and also scared shitless!!!!

Back from Hell!!

I am going to try to make this as quick as possible. Obviously my 1st IVF cycle was a failure, I got the news of my negative beta on Nov 7th. I was devastated and cried every day for almost a month. Well my RE scheduled me to have a laparoscopy done on Dec 7th to see if there was something they missed on my HSG, that would of caused my cycle to fail. So I went in for my lap last Tuesday thinking they would remove some scar tissue and that would be it, woke up to find out I had to have both of my tubes removed. I was pretty upset at first but they were both blocked and hydrosalpinx (fluid filled) so they had to remove them. I obviously will never conceive naturally but thank goodness for IVF! Some good news came from this my RE offered to pay almost half towards a full fresh cycle in Feb!!!!! So I am pretty stoked about that, I will be back to start my BC pills in January and be transferring in Feb!!!! Miracles do come true and I think this may be the 1st of many miracles to come for 2008!!!

Dreaded 2ww

Well I have decide not to update my blog for a while because I have been feeling very doomed.
This 2 week wait is the worst part of the whole IVF cycle. My biggest problem is that impatient me, had to start peeing on sticks since 3 days after transfer, and everyday there after, up until today which is 7days past transfer, of course still all negative. I am pretty certain that this cycle is a bust and that I have to decide what next? I will get the dreaded blood test Wed the 7th and am not looking forward to it at all.
