Hi again, I started getting stomach cramps about 5 days before my Beta and they still haven't completely gone away.  I also had very sore boobs but that started right after transfer when I started taking progesterone suppositories so I'm sure that was the cause.  Enjoy the weekend - hope you have some nice sunny weather!  It'll be Monday before you know it! x

Thanks for the note.  I hope you have a great weekend too.  I know what you mean about pressure... we didnt tell anyone in our families that we were ttc, just cuz of the pressure.  We didnt want ppl asking questions.  But now the pressure is still on!  I'm so afraid that something will go wrong and that i will let everyone down.  Hopefully you will be able to give your mom the good news one day VERY soon!  Glad you are feeling more positive.  Monday isnt THAT far away... by the time i wake up monday morning I bet that you will have heard back from the Dr already!  I'm so looking forward to hearing happy news from you (no pressure though!)

Hearing that my mom cramped for the first trimester made me feel much better but its still quite scary.  

Happy Friday!

Bye for now,

g

Just a quick note to say hi!  Hi there, The cramps are coming and going but nothing to extreme. My tummy was upset this morning also. Wonder what that's about. I'm so glad it's the weekend! I actually have to go in to the doc to pick up another box of my actosplus meds. I want so badly to beg them to test today!!! I haven't bought any HPT so I can't be tempted to test at home. Hope your tummy feels better.

It's good they gave you a date! Stick to it!!  We didn't see fertility specialist this month so have NO date! I may break down and test this weekend. I'll see.  Nope, no symptoms at all actually. Usually I'm on progesterone and I get tons of cramping with that... but not on it now, so nothing unusual! Keep your fingers crossed! Hopefully we will both get good news soon!

I actually never thought that this would work & had trouble visualizing it.  I am still rather shocked, & fear the worst whenever i have a cramp or a twinge.  A medhelp friend mailed me a meditation CD. Although it was corny, I think it helped. There was a lot of visualization on it - but the part that got to me is the part where I was to visualize all my departed ancestors who were lovingly smiling down on me & wishing for me to have this baby.  It brings tears to my eyes thinking about it as I love my gramma, gran & pop so much & i know that they want this for me. It was weird cuz while meditating, I cd picture them in my mind like i had seen them yesterday & I cd feel their love for me & the child that would be the continuation of our family.  It sounds wacky - but thats what happened!

The clinic we went to has never been busier either.  DH was in a golf tournament last week and 3 out of the 4 guys on his golf team were patients of our RE. How strange is that?

Interesting about the picture,,, LOL it will baby's first photo ever.  Not so cute, but pretty cool!

Your wait is ONLY 12 days.  LOL - Im sure it feels like a lifetime.

We have no coverage in Manitoba, Canada at all.  We have to pay for everything on our own.  Some people's insurance through work will cover some or all of their meds.  I only had IUI which was $400CDN.  On top of that I had to pay $70 for my femara, which was reimbursed by my insurance company, and $90 for the hCG shot - which was not covered.  Im one of the lucky ones.  I think that IVF costs about $6-7000+ a cycle, + meds which can also be in the thousands. Most of the preliminary appointments & tests are covered by provincial health care, but we need to pay for treatments.  A new rule just came in that we can claim back 40% of the cost of treatments, which is so awesome for couples who have had to pay so much money!

You deserve a big bear hug!  Just remember we have come to far to panic now! So, our mission this weekend is to stay as busy as possible! I plan to be at my doctor at 730A on Monday morning...lol We can't read in to the symptoms just have to focus on staying positive until we have a right to be sad, which we don't.  Mind you I'm telling you all this but really talking to myself also. I will keep praying for BFP!

I like how you think!  Working on a garden is a great way to pass the 2ww, but perhaps some of the garden fertility will rub off onto every day life!

LOL - I'd try a net to keep the rabbits out of my flower garden, but it kindof defeats the purpose of putting flowers in the front yard. Might look a little weird LOL.  I have heard that sprinkling bloodmeal in the garden will keep rabbits away too.  

I know some clinics do bloodwork at like 10 or 11 dpt.  My clinic wd only do a beta on me at 16dpiui. If af hasnt arrived by then, I would def know that something is up.  How many dpt will you be on Monday?

May I ask - does the government cover the cost of IVF there?

All the best,

g

Had a phone call from the docs and been given the bad news, no pregnancy, devastated with the news.  Feel numb and I suppose a little angry too, all that to feel like this.

I wish you all the luck in the world with everything, and i will from time to time check the forums out, at the moment just want to hide and see no one, but not possible, life must go on and maybe one more chance.

Good to know that your friend felt like AF was coming while she was pregnant... to be honest, thats how i feel too!  

So if you are waiting till monday... does that mean you are gonna do the HPT before you go for the beta?  :~)  Or are you fully going to wait for the results from the bloodwork?

Enjoy the rest of the day.... are you going to have time to get your plants in?  I  had finished puttingmy plants in and they were starting to grow very nicely... i went outside on Tuesday to admire my plants and noticed that one of them is completely GONE!  I think a rabbit ate my poppy!  Now I have to go and find something else ... hopefully something that rabbits dont like!

Thanks heavens i feel better today.  Sorry you didnt sleep well last night, but night sweats cd be a sign of rising progesterone i think!  Hmmm,,, interesting.  LOL wow how nice that woman was choosing to share that personal info with you... those are strange stories to tell a neighbour, isnt it?  Better be sure not to tell that lady any juicy tidbits!  LOL - why on earth would her daughter be telling about the night of conception of her latest child... not quite something I would be sharing... altho our nite of conception involved a test tube and a syringe & Catheter, and a nurse! LOL - I bet that lady wd get a kick outta that!  

Not long till your test!

You are in my thoughts and prayers.  Hi there I'm ok this morning. Woke up to no spotting so that instantly made me feel better. Still have the cramping and slight feeling of "queezy".  Monday can't get here fast enough! How are you holding up?
I try and stop myself from getting super excited, but just the thought of finally getting a BFP puts a smile on my face.

This is my third attempt, 1st attempt failed wasn't ovulating, 2nd attempt very weak eggs and this time had 2 healthy embryo's transferred.  

Not offering a blood test is hard as I have read that hpt can be negative and the best results come from the blood tests, would definately recommend a blood test, i'm so surprised your docs don't offer a blood test.

That's why I am still holding onto a little hope and waiting for my blood results.

Will let you know how I get on. x

Hi
Its so devastating, i'm on progesterone pessaries and oestrogen tabs, I did everything to the T, keep getting upset today but still hanging onto hope that the blood results will show positive.  Its so hard to control that sinking feeling and that emptiness I felt today, but hey fingers crossed, I will let you know as soon as I get my results this afternoon.

When is your blood test?

hi
Thank you, well did a home pregnancy test this morning was negative waiting for my blood results this afternoon, trying to stay positive but just can't focus today.  Felt like all was well, breasts were sore last few days normally a good sign but then again could be a sign of the dreaded cycle.  Fingers crossed for the bloods, will keep in touch, wishing you all the best in your journey and GOD BLESS.

Oh I know what you mean about bursting into tears about someone else's  good news. I've done that many times, and DH thought i was a nutter.  Its not that you are not happy for the other person, but there are so many other emotions tied up in there that all the pain and frustration comes out in tears.  When you add fertility drugs and natural hormones into the mix, its a recipe for disaster.

I'm hoping that I'm just having growing pains right now.  I have heard that cramping is normal but i'm scared.  I am definitely taking it easy tonight.  Theres good TV on tonight, and i dont plan to leave the couch!

Hope you have had a good evening!

Just a quick note to say hi.. Thank you for your note.  I do have to say it is sort of surreal.  It really hasnt sunk in yet, i guess i'll feel more comfortable after my 2nd beta today.  This journey has brought me closer to my husband and my faith in God.  I never thought it would happen for me, i think that was my barrier.
Most importantly i never gave up and believe me there were times where i wanted to. Take comfort in knowing that it will happen, it just takes a little longer.  This whole process has taught me to be patient and trust in God.  Funny you wouldve have never heard me say that one year ago, i was so angry at God for making it so hard for me to get pregnant.  

Best of luck to you, you are in my prayers.  Think positive, it can happen to you, it will happen to you!

How nice for your friend!  LOL - used to think that good luck was limited, but i dont think it's the case when it comes to babies.  What happens to one person has NO effect whatsoever on anyone else's good fortune.  That would be nice if you had a friend to go through all of this stuf with.  My cramps are still bugging me.  They arent horrible, but they are there.  I hope everything is ok too - even though i have been told that cramps are normal, they are still worrisome. I went for a walk last night and am wondering if the walk did something to me.  I will definitely take it easy.  You take it easy too - and give that embie plenty of time to nicely implant!

You are in my thoughts and prayers.  Yes it is quite the ordeal this 2ww!  I have parked myself on the couch ...pretty much until monday..lol. I too just found out a family member is now 3 months along. So happy for them as they have been trying and have had 3 m/c and two IVF attempts. They ended up pregnant the "old fashion: way. It's amazing.

Hmmm  I had just written you a msg, and next thing I knew - it had disappeared on me!  

So you are going to hold off to test - you are a stronger woman than I!  I started testing at about 9dpo.  Thinking back, I didnt have any really early symptoms - but i did start feeling strange at about 15dpo.  I know some ladies do, though.

I am praying that you get good news on Monday.  Sending babydust from Canada!!!

Wow that's awful!! Hope you feel better soon!! Not sure when I will test yet. I'll probably wait at least 12-14 days post ovulation so probably around Monday or Tuesday as well! Maybe I'll do my HPT on Tuesday as well so we can have our good news on the same day!!!
