@colleen0516- just catching up now, but wanted to say I am thinking of you and praying for the best! I just saw your post about doing the estrogen patches and your RE having a plan, but praying this is still a viable pregnancy for you! I really hope you don't have to do this again, but if you do, I will be there with you, cheering you on!
@c-k- so sorry to hear about the BFN It sounds like you are keeping your head up and ready to move on to the next cycle? Will it be a FET?!
AFM- took a test yesterday and it was BFN. Not unexpected with an IUI, but still disappointing nonetheless. It makes me wonder if I have an egg quality issue, fertilization issue, or implantation issue, since we had 2 great follies and a great DH sample. I really hope our next IVF round will work.. and hopefully solve whatever the underlying issue is! I just called my nurse, but pretty sure I will get AF, use OPKs and then start the estrogen patches after positive OPK. Likely starting stims then around end of Sept. Going into the first round, I felt so confident and relaxed that IVF would be our solve. Now, going into this after a cancellation, its going to take all the self control I have to not stress myself out to the max. I just don't know if I can take another disappointment like last month.. since not sure how many other options we have if this doesn't work. You ladies are so strong.. if you can go through what you have... then I can make it through this too!
@c-k- Appreciate the support! When do you get to do your FET? I have to do a full IVF cycle since we didn't get to ER this month. But still holding out hope we can find a protocol that will work.
@colleen0516- I saw your beta results on the other board and I could NOT be more excited for you!!!! Praying for you and a rising beta. You have been so supportive and you definitely deserve a happy ending. Your journey and perseverance gives us all hope and strength!
@colleen0516 I can't wait to here your results on Thursday. It sucks you have to wait that long!!
I'm over here all like is 6dp5dt too early to POAS!? I think I am going to try to wait until Thursday. My beta is Friday morning and I just want to have a heads up before getting a heart crushing phone call at work on Friday afternoon.
@colleen0516 thinking of you this morning! Hope you get a great beta today!
My beta is tomorrow morning and I am pretty sure it is going to be negative. I have no rational reason for thinking that so I guess it's just a defense mechanism. I almost POAS this morning since I am now 8dp5dt but I chickened out at the last min.
@rachelelynn12 AHHH I am so excited for you!! Congrats! That is an awesome beta.
I POAS last night and it was whiter than white so I am trying to keep it together today and wait for the doctor to call with my beta results.
