Prettysmile40 :  its so horrible not knowing, isn’t it!? Not long to go now. I got my BFP on Friday and Darling Husband has made me poas 3 more times because he still doesn’t believe it!! we were thinking already about whether we’d do another clomid cycle or go directly to ivf. Hopefully this one will stick and we won’t need to do either now!

fingers crossed for you, and I hope there’s something they can do for your dad. Sorry you’re going through all this at the same time.

I’m supposed to get my blood test on Sunday. But I doubt I can wait that long. I’m probably going to get some cheapies at the Dollar Store!

Prettysmile40 :  I’m very sorry about your dad – hopefully today’s meeting goes well. And I’m impressed that you’ve resisted POAS! I wasn’t able to. We got our BFP 11/5 and blood test confirmation on 11/10. Our second beta on 11/12 showed everything is progressing as expected so nothing more to do except continue vitamins and progesterone shots until our first ultrasound on 11/25! According to my app the baby is the size of a peppercorn today hahahaha.

Prettysmile40 :  I’m sorry about your dad, it seems we can never catch a break sometimes.

Fingers crossed for you beta. I haven’t transferred yet. I’ve always been in the camp of “wait until I’m late to test” and I was originally going to wait until beta. Part of the issue with waiting until I’m late is I never knew if I had a chemical or not. But I think I’m going to start testing early to see if I ever even get a second line, and if it’s a chemical maybe my doctor can use that information for the second FET (if needed).

I hope that made sense.

Prettysmile40 :  My fingers are crossed for you!  I read your posts whenever I see them.  My husband and I are in a similar boat as yours, from what I can tell.  I’m 39, husband 46.  Neither of us have been married before or have children.  We’ve been TTC for 3 years with no luck, and we have unexplained infertility.  We were going down the IVF path, but my husband had reservations, and my mom has terminal cancer, which is highly stressfull.  So..we are in a holding pattern.  I’m anxiously waiting to see how things turn out for you.  I hope Hope HOPE you get wonderful news you can share on Wednesday!!! 🙂

i vote for hold out until the phone call.

i poased my first 3 cycles of ttc, then didn’t poas again until after we got the positive beta phone call on our 24th cycle.  (our 2nd ivf cycle)

i felt the disappointment from the phone calls for our failed treatments or just having AF arrive when it was due on non treatment cycles was easier to handle instead of first thing in the morning peeing on a stick and dwelling on it all day long.

 

fingers crossed.

Prettysmile40 :  That is a big part of the reason.  We are waiting for now. My mom’s health is declining rapidly…and honestly…it’s just too much to think about right now.  It’s something I still want to do, but the last few months it’s been so incredibly difficult.  I don’t think I can add another stressor onto my plate.  If it did work, the constant worry about the health of the baby while wanting to be there for my mom during this time…I don’t believe it would be in my (or my baby’s) best interest.  Hopefully, things will change one way or another in a few months, and we can revisit.  My baby dreams aren’t over yet!

Sending prayers for the best possible prognosis and plan for your dad!!!  Also praying for happy  news for you!  🙂 🙂   Just take it one day at a time with your dad!  Great job being patient too!

I’ve gotten to the point where I’m able to wait at least until expected day of my period to test, but not much longer than that!!
