Hi all  :)

Ginny - so so sorry for you hunnie. I so understand how you feel, really I do. In a few weeks, after alot of grieving, you will make the decision to continue I'm sure. You probably can't quite imagine this at the moment, but I'm ready already, and haven't even done the peestick test yet! (AF is in full force, so no embie could hang on in there  :'()
Thinking of you. Lots of love to you both xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Good luck for testing today Berrygirl  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Hope everyone else is ok and the 2ww is whizzing along NOT!!!!

LOL

Hi girls,

On day 7 of 2ww. All the best for everyone testing next week. Let's hope there's lots of BFP's.....

Do most wait for hospital result or test at home?

Thanks Lizzy - feel like I belong somewhere now!

This is my third and last attempt at ICSI - changed clinic this time.  First two
I did test at home and because of faint line went to clinic for blood test.

This new clinic has booked me in for blood test on 30th and told me not to
do test at home as they are not 100% accurate and will save any disappointment if the reading is wrong.

Don't know how i'm going to resist the urge to do home one !!!???

Hope this helps.
Donna
(sitting at home very bored letting my imagination run wild and wishing it was
now the 31st Aug so I knew where I was!!)

Dear all,
i haven't posted much before,but have spent lots of time reading all your messages. I would just like to say that it is a fantastic site ;D,and you are all keeping me going. Currently on our 3rd 2ww and feel like i am going mad. All is not gaing to plan. Started spotting on Sun/mon and feeling very shaky.
Went to see consultant who did a yucky scan :-[ and said endomitrium still thick so i could actually be pregnant esp with weirdo other symptoms. Since then i have had varying degrees of spotting combined with all the different feelings you get with the botty bombs. On day 11,so yesterday decided to do a first resp test - bfn. Really don't know what is going on,but don't think the embys can still be hanging in there. :( Doc dis an HCG test which was very low,but was only day 8. An hour after this I had a call from a girl I work with telling me she is pregnant. I now have to decide whether I can cope working alongside her. Its mostly all ^furios^. Our official test is on Mon,but not holding out much hope - still drinking gallons of pineapple juice,which thankfully I love,
                        best wishes,lots of ^BFP^ to everyone,and may the evil one not rear her ugly head  ^No AF^,
                          suz :-\

Hi Suz - got my fingers crossed for you to get good news on Monday, keep thinking positively - don't you hate it when people say that to you - sorry!

Is pineapple juice good for you??  Any other tips.

I joined this site today and read that since ET on Tuesday I have done everything wrong - DH cooked me a curry, asked what juice I wanted - i opted for Mango, DS got my favourite Ferrero Rocher which have nuts in.

Today's instructions for DH will be Pineapple Juice and Milk - what else should I add to his shopping list?

Hi Donna,
            sounds like your husband is also a star. Tell him he needs to get pineapple juice which is pure,not from concentrate. I heard the stuff from Aldi supermarkets is best,not sure why. Also Brazil nuts!
They think i have an implantation prob so have seen a specialist in this. Sent him a mail to ask if there is anything we can do to help,but he reckons therei s no evidence that selenium (which is in the p.apple juice)helps. I've decided to listen to the ladies on this site rather than him,after all,he's not been through this! So,its pineapple juice a plenty for me! Luckily i love the stuff. I think the only other thing you can do to help is forget about it til test day - Yeah right!!! ^idiot^. We are off to Italy for 2 weeks on Tues,so trying to think about that. Just hoping the embys have a tube of super glue and are hanging in there!
                                                  Hope you are coping ok,
                                                                                    suz

Great timing for going to Italy, lets hope its best holiday ever.

I seem to have same problem, both times before I get to PT stage with faint positive line, then it doesn't hang on which is why this time I have stayed in bed since ET on Tuesday, got up today to go on-line but intend to do nothing!!!

It's so hard staying in bed when you are not ill!

Let me know how your weekend goes.
Donna

I Lizzy,

Sorry thought I had mentioned that it was another BFN for me :'(.  Will be going again next cycle in September.

Thanks for all your support.

Love, Anne x

Hi,
   that must be awful for you. The consultant is convinced my problem is that any blood clots do not dissolve as quickly as they should,so circulation between emby and uterus is comprimised. Injecting heparin every day. I know what you mean about resting when you don't feel ill. Both previous times i have felt dreadful,so wanted to rest. should be back at work,but a friend from work called wed night to say she is pregnant,so decided i was best out of there for a bit! Hard timing.
                                        Well,make the most of your rest,we will need to save up our energy for when we become pregnant!!!
                                         ^reiki^suz
                 Ginny and Anne 7,have only just joined in with this,but have followed your posts,I think you are all very brave.

Hi Ginny

I have everything possible crossed for you for your re-test on Wed.  My heart goes out to you as this will be a really long few days.

if you go to Tenerife then have a fantastic time and take lots of time to regroup.

:-* ^Cuddle^ ^Cuddle^ ^hugme^ ^hugme^

Lots of love lshack xx

Hi Lizzy and all,

thanks so much for adding me to the list. Its day 12 today. Our test day is Monday,but decided to do a first response test this morning at 6am -  ^idiot^. It came up with a really faint line. Gulp. So at 6.15 DH and I were off to Tescos! Picked up a Clear Blue test,as heard they are more sensitive?? Raced back,did the deed and got another fainter positive. This was 2nd wee of the morning,and test was 2 days early,could this really be a positive??? I am going maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad. I have been searching the site for 'faint positive' and it does look hopeful :). Is it poss to get false positives??

Hi ladies

I hope it's ok to join in I am half way through the 2ww I feel like I am going a little  ^smash^ as one minute I am thinking really positive as I have the sore boobs and the next I am thinking it's all over as I feel like I have period pains. This is my second time of ICSI treatment and it feels different to last time so I hope that that is a positive sign.
I have been reading through your posts and you all seem to be such great support at a time of complete mind madness!!!!!!!!!
Testing on Friday the 26th and I have to go to the hospital for a blood test I shall try and get through until Friday before testing. If I did test early when is the earliest you can test? I had egg collection on fri 12th and egg transfer mon 15th.

Best of Luck to everyone

Love Ellie L  ^daisy^

Pops- I got really excited reading your message. It looks good. There is no way you could get a line if you weren't pg so congrats!

Ellie L- I'm also halfway through 2WW. If you read enough on this site you'll find many girls regretting testing early. Some of them get BFN then get all depressed only to get BFP a few days later. If you test early you don't know for sure and then you have another even more agonising wait. It is so tough waiting but we will know quite soon. Time does pass even though it's dragging at the moment.

Love Bluechirpy

The test result sounds like good news - keeping fingers crossed for you. From past experience (2 early mc), clear blue needs a reasonable level to show a line. First Response is the most sensitive you can buy over the counter.

How is everyone doing? I'm trying not to be obsessive looking for symptoms - i know its probably too early as its only 7 days since ec and 4 since et. Does anyone know whether heparin and aspirin make you more likely to have an implantation bleed? Not having a good day today  - could any of the "old hands" let a first timer know how they deal with days like this when I've convinced myself (admittedly on the somewhat shaky grounds of nothing having happened....) that its not worked.

Many thanks

hi Ginny,

i read your post yesterday when you said that you were waiting until wednesday to re test.  my thoughts have been with you as waiting until wednesday would have been dreadful.  at least your wait is over and you know, although it wasnt what we are all hoping for. 

a holiday will be lovely and being only a few weeks away is very exciting!!

take care ^hugme^

Oh Bluechirpy,Nik and Catey,

thanks for you message,am torn between wanting to be cautious just in case :-\ and feeling ^banana^ ^clapping^ ^jumpin^!!! Will test again tomorrow and try to keep busy. Catey,I am taking Heparin,I started to spot from day 6. on day 8 it was a bit redder.Asked the doc if the heparin would make me bleed more,but she said no. When I have shaky days,I drink lots of pineapple juice and eat some choc,then spend ages on here. Drives you mad thou doesn't it?!

OH well - here goes - last of the pessaries tonight and test in the morning.  I won't be sorry to see the back of them for a while - they're horrid.
Not sure whether I'll get any sleep though.  Don't feel pregnant though - had no symptoms whatsoever, so not too hopeful.  But I didn't think I'd get this far..... Will let you know how it goes tomorrow.
