MrsBG :  I’m out of Wondfo, I have ClinicalGuard and FRER. I also amazon’d some Osom which are supposed to detect as little as 2.5HCG. One of the nurses at my clinic had it pick up hers at 4DP when she was at 8 HCG. Lol

islabride2016 :  It’s so hard! How are you feeling? Other than being tired, bloated and crampy (which I’m assuming is the progesterone) I feel totally normal.

niki1983 :  Thanks bee!

Sooo. I quit my job today. I’ve been wanting to do it and start my own business or get into a new career for a while. I walked in to 180 emails from being our 2 days for ET and just broke down crying, probably something to do with just feeling overwhelmed. I hate my job, felt undervalued, underpaid, and like I have been wasting away doing something that adds no value to my life. I’m terrified because we have 20k in IVF debt, but I’m looking forward to taking a break and caring for myself. Holy crap, what did I do?! Aaaah!

islabride2016 :  Thanks for posting this day by day info! I’m trying not to google because my RE told me to stay off the internet, but this seems ok to read.  If I don’t get spotting that doesn’t mean implantation didn’t happen right? 😛

niki1983 :  Did you get to test before you “froze all”? I’m still coming to terms with the fact that I didn’t test and that was the plan, my RE changed the plan last minute because it didn’t look like we’d have many/any to test and she was starting to think my embies are extra fragile. 

Excited To Bee :  Sorry I’m getting confused, where are you, did you transfer and in your 2ww or??? Congrats on your new freedom since that’s what you wanted! 😀 Are you gong to start your new career hunt right away or take a breather?

vintagekitten :  Yes, transfer was last Thursday. I’m 4DP5DT. Shamelessly peeing on HPT morning and night. Lol. 

I saw you transferred! How are things for you? 

Thank you! I am going to take some time, but just a few weeks. I’ve been applying to Marketing and non-profit jobs the last week or so. I think my plan is to start my own business though, my ultimate goal would be get enough marketing/business experience to appeal to non profits as a marketing coordinator of some sort down the road.

Excited To Bee :  AHhhh Ok so I am  2DP5DT, mine was Saturday. Was it just one embie? Mine was just one, we only had one. You know yours is a she? Because you tested? 

Working for yourself is the dream! Best of luck with the new adventure!

vintagekitten :  At least were any days PT! I cannot wait, so hopeful for a BFP. ❤️ It would be lovely if you, isla, and I all got BFP! 

Yes, we know she is a she because we did PGS & PGD testing.

islabride2016 :  Isla what makes yours “rag tag” and why aren’t you hopeful? You have THREE!!!! 🙂 🙂 I only had had one 🙁 

My embryolgy lab at our clinic doen’t grade. I woudln’t know how to tell if embie is looking great or not, how do you all know by looking at a pic if it’s a good looking embie? I’m just going off the smiles of the embroyloist and my RE, they seemed pretty stoked about my mystery embie so I’m trying to stay super positive. I will not test before the big day, my RE warned me not to,  I’m on extra meds that might corrupt a pee test.

Excited To Bee :  that would be wonderful!! Good luck with your business plans. My friend just did a similar thing and he is living it up this summer! I’m jealous.

 

vintagekitten :  they are rag-tag because of their grading. I had an 8c, 5c and 4b. My doctor was hoping for at least a 6b to recommend not putting all 3 in. The number is the number of cells and the letter represents how much fragmentation there is (with a being the best and d being the worst). I think the chemical last time makes me concerned that they will not be viable. But I’m still in the running!

islabride2016 :  Oh were yours three day transfers? My place has no grading… I always feel so left out of the conversations about that stuff. You mean your doc would have preferred to put in fewer? Apparently my clinic has a limit of 2. It’s so interesting how different everyone’s is. If yours was a Day 3 transfer then do you have to wait longer to test? Well I am thinking positively for you! You are so in the running times three!!!!

I am freaking out a bit. I got the below + this morning. I don’t want to tell DH until I get a few more.. I’m hoping tonight. I bought a cute Patriots onesie for our baby girl and wanted to surprise him with a + HPT and it. Last time I got a positive, I lost it the very next day.. so I am praying and doing my best to have faith in my body to support a healthy pregnancy. 

I darkened the pic because I took it in a very bright room and it made it more difficult to see. It popped up within 2minutes.
