kaycost :  Hey  how have you been? Did you do your retrival yet? Hope all is going well! My transfer is tomorrow. I have a range of emotions  today. Excitement, nervous, anxiety etc.  The progestorne and estrogen probably isn’t helping my mood either but I know it’s all worth it to give our little frostie it’s best chance. Really hope all is going well for you!!

kaycost :  My beta is Friday  I haven’t tested yet bc I’m too scared!! I may test on my own thurs but not sure. I can’t trust my symptoms bc of the progestorone. I’ve had 2 losses so I am kinda scared even if I get a bfp. Hoping I do and I can relax a little more. How about you did you have your beta yet? How r u feeling?

Hello! Newcomer here.

 

ROLL CALL:

Age/SO’s Age: 27/43

TTC History (length of time TTC, previous IUI/IVF attempts, etc.): Three years

Known Issues: Male factor, low motility and low morphology. I MAY have a blocked tube, but chose not to repeat the test due to discomfort.

IVF plan (vitamins/supplements, short or long cycle, genetic testing, fresh/frozen transfer, # embryos to transfer, etc.): No genetic testing, whatever happens, happens. I have regular cycles, no issues there. 

IVF Start Date: Period started March 12th. Ended up with 13 eggs retreived, 11 mature enough. Only 3 fertilized, so the embryologist advised that we transfer 1 embryo on day 3. We froze one day 5 blast. It has been 8 days since my transfer. 

My beta isn’t until Sunday Apr 8th, and I’m DYING! I have a bunch of Wondfo HCG tests, all expired of course LOL. I have taken one every morning for the last 3 days, all stark white. But I can’t really trust them because they’re expired. I know I shouldn’t have even used them, but I don’t want to buy more yet. So I am pretty disheartened. 

I’ve had some weird cramps the last 3-4 days. Not period cramps, and not caca cramps (lol sorry, thats what Darling Husband calls them). And I have no spotting… could it just be the Progesterone Cream causing the cramps? I had regular cramps the first 5ish days, and I know the cream was causing those… but the last few days they have just been different, I dont know how to discribe them. Maybe I’m just being silly…lol.

Anyway, thanks for listening 🙂

mrskatiec :  First congrats on getting through stimming, retrieval, and transfer! I know waiting for your beta is so hard!! So you are 8 days post transfer, so that would make you 13dpo? I would go out and buy new pregnancy tests bc you are right you cant trust the ones that expired.  Also I would buy FRER or something similar bc they can pick up on your hcg levels earlier.  I would think you should be able to get a positive by 13dpo in frer but with that said my nurse told me if I was going to test at home to wait until at least 15dpo for it to be more accurate. So it can just take time for you to have enough hcg to register.  I have also read stories of women who got all negative tests and went in for their beta and it was positive! So obviously I am sure you know this but keep taking your medicine no matter what!! Also with your cramping it could mean anything. I wouldn’t read to much in.  The transfer and the meds can cause cramping. Also could be pregnancy or AF. I know it’s so frustrating not knowing and  waiting . I hated waiting too! I wish you the best of luck and I hope you get your bfp!!! The 8th is almost here!!! 

Also you are not being silly at all about your cramps! I am 6 weeks and I try to analyze mine but I know I shouldn’t bc it just makes me crazy!
