  • @Colleen0516 That is a great number! But I think you are smart to be cautious. Going through a loss makes it hard not to try to protect ourselves from more sadness and hurt. You are in my prayers. Did your doc or nurse have anything to say about the bleeding?

  • Well, she checked my lining and said that it was still very thick so the bleeding couldn't be that much. Which I truely don't know how it's possible, I've been staining since the day before my beta. It's constant. But I'm relieved to know my lining is still okay.
    She said that bleeding is normal in the first trimester. It could be nothing to be concerned about OR it could be the early signs of miscarriage. There is really no way of knowing. If it gets to the point where I'm soaking a pad in an hour (which seems crazy lol), then I should call immediately. Otherwise, wait and see. 
    Its obviously not that bad yet, but it's going away yet- so we shall see. I just wish it would stop. 

    The more I move, the more I bleed. The mornings as less because I was laying all night.

  • @Colleen0516 I was thinking about this last night, does your RE think that maybe more than one took because you transferred 3, and maybe you could be loosing one but not the others?? Is that a possibility??

  • @kyrgyzshan that's excellent news!!! So happy to hear! Can't wait to hear your fertiztion report! I feel like it's gonna be a good one for you!!

    @ADRIANAC1982 I thought that, and she said it's possible, but my starting number being so low- were not too sure. 
    Sadly, this is the exact same thing as last month. The bleeding was just as much. It's freaky how similiar it is. My next step is sono. At sono last time I was told the baby was measuring behind. My beta kept doubling, but the measurement never caught up. No heartbeat either.

    SO the sono will be important for me. It will either allow me to be excited or still be nervous.

    When I first started reading about BETA numbers I was sorta confused, but ive also seem people with multiples and now so high beta #'s and vice-versa, so hopefully that sono will be more telling!

  • My sono is on Thursday! 
    @ADRIANAC1982 I agree! I've seen some HIGH betas that's i was sure we're multiple and were only singleton. And some low betas that turned out to be twins. So it def gives me hope! My beta wouldn't be a concern at all, if I wasn't bleeding. It's the blood, the clots and the persistent cramping that is a major red flag! But YA NEVER KNOW! A week will tell more- fingers crossed til then!

  • @wifeinraleigh28 It is Tuesday, im keeping busy trying to not worry! My DH on the other hand is super excited, I cant lie its kinda cute though!

    I am super nervous though, I feel like BETA numbers are one thing, but the u/s means so much, and ill be 6 weeks, and a few days by Tuesday so we should get a hearbeat if all is well!

    This is def more stressful I feel than the TWW, at least with the TWW you can cheat and test, but right now  your in limbo just hoping everything's okay in there

    This board has been pretty quiet the last couple days. 

    I cant ant wait for you to hear that heartbeat @ADRIANAC1982 that will be amazing. 

    Well everyday I don't have bleeding, I consider a success. I know my chances are so slim but I'm trying to hold on to that hope for a miracle. If I still don't have bleeding I'll take a HPT Sunday.

  • Hey ya'll! So, I'm sitting here thinking about my upcoming ET and trying to plan for the next few days. When were y'all's transfers? Day 2, 3 or 5? And if you did a day 5, why did your doc decided to wait? My last 2 transfers have been rushed because of the poor quality of the embryos and they wanted to get them inside me to try to thrive instead of the Petrie dish. But this round I'm thinking we're getting much better quality embabies. However, next week is the first week of school and I really am stressing about calling in sick on Wednesday (day 5). Did you have healthy and strong embryos transferred on day 3? That would be ideal for me! What swayed your RE's decision for your transfer?

  • @kyrgyzshan. My re was planning a five day trans from the start.  They feel the blasts have the best chance (if the quality and quantity are there). We ended up freezing all because my prog was too high for a fresh transfer. I work in a school too! Our first day is Wednesday.  (My transfer was yesterday.) When we were figuring out a date for my Fet, the nurse said the dr wouldn't be transferring on Labor Day at all. But maybe yours would? I wonder if you could consider freezing and time the transfer over a school break when you have the least stress.  So exciting to get those embies out!

  • @kyrgyzshan we wanted to do a day 5 transfer before we decided to bank out embryos for PGS testing. My RE said its a "poor man's genetic test."  If they make it to day 5 in the Petri dish, they are probably better quality. Good luck!

    afm, I'm get go for my baseline this week, if AF arrives when she's supposed to. I'm so ready.
