AFM - I did a fresh IVF cycle in November. It really took a huge toll on me emotionally and physically. I am usually a very non emotional, practical person but dealing with all the appts and shots and craziness was just too much. I even took a little hiatus from all of the internet aroung Thanksgiving because I just could not take it. Well my retreival was 11/27, got 12 eggs total. 10 fertilized We did a 5 day blasto transfer on 12/2, only one baby and froze 5 blasts !!!!!

Today was my blood draw. I have had negative tests all weekend so I was not thinking anything. I just got off the phone and the nurse said my beta was 44 I am pregnant!?! I totally don't believe it! After nap, I need to run out and buy some more pregnancy test ( I have only been using internet cheapies and nothing shows up! Gonna get a digital to take in the am). I have to go back on Wedn for another blood draw to see how my beta is progressing.

I am so excited but so scared! I already yelled at my mom and sister this morning for calling and bugging me about whether I had heard anything. I told them that I have been getting BFNs and leave me alone. Now I feel bad But I am so scared to tell anyone. What if it is a chemical pregnancy? Maybe I should wait till after I get my beta back on Wednes to tell my mom and sister? I don't even want to update offically yet because I am so scared that it is wrong or something? AHHHHHHHH!
First, Congrats! That's wonderful news!

Second--don't feel bad about your mom & sis...blame it on the hormones For real, though...I was a HOT MESS when I was on the injectibles for IUI, so I can imagine that it was rough for you. And I had a really hard time when people wanted updates all.the.time! I'm usually pretty private, & I really needed to process whatever was happening, good or bad, before I could share that w/ anybody but DP. I know that, if it were me, I would probably apologize to your mom & sis for being short w/ them, & leave it at that, then wait until additional beta(s) come back before telling them. I just find it so much harder to tell that I'm pg, then that I'm not pg anymore, than to just tell somebody that I miscarried or had a chemical.

the waiting's always the worst!

I haven't retested but have been tempted too because don't want to waist a FRER on a BFN! KWIM
I think it could have been from the old hcg, though somewhat unlikely. I think you should wait another couple of days, maybe til Friday, & test again; I'd probably use a cheapie, though. I wouldn't want to waste a FRER on old hcg, & if it's a new pg, it should show up on a DS or WM test by then. Fx crossed that it's a new bean!

Personally, I'd ask for a beta so you have a number not just a line. But if you don't want to do that, then yes, I'd wait until the AM and retest.

I had really severe lower back pain after my m/c for a couple of weeks. I didn't see a doctor about it (my ob/gyn nurse was so insensitive about the m/c didn't even think to call about it). I did see a chiropractor and it eventually lessened. I hope yours doesn't last as long.

DH just got short notice tasked to deploy. He leaves in less than a month. I'm thankful that he'll still be home for Christmas. I'm trying to hold it together, but I feel numb.

Did I miss something? I thought you had a sticky transfer this time. I'm so sorry if I missed it. I really hope you're moving on because you're graduating, but now I'm super worried. I'm sorry I dont' know how to get into the sensative subjects area.
