louloubabe, Maria, stockportsun. So very saddened to hear your news. :(
I agree with Sue. I saw the first one as a learning curve in the end but it still stings right there...even now while I have the hope left still for my second cycle. Don't really think it gets easier, just that our skins get a bit thicker so it looks that way to the outside world.

I had my blood HcG back today which was 41. Apparently they count a positive as over 50 so not good. However, long story short, they (eventually) said that it was still very early so not necessarily a negative and I have to have another test Thursday to see which was direction the Hcg is moving in. I've literally been through just about every single emotion known to man in the last few days and I'm starting to get worn out by the stress and lack of sleep.

Hope everyone else is keeping their spirits and positive thoughts up.

It is still early Caz and the only way you are truly going to know what is going on is wait till Thursday.  Yep you're going to be a tired nervous wreck by then but you've got hcg in your system it's now a case of it's GOING to go up.  Think you should start your novel now.........  you might get some writing in.......  thinking of you and good luck for Thursday.

Love Sue

Hi Girls

Just popping by to give big big hugs to those of you who have got a negative in the last couple of days.

Keep tight hold of your dreams - I hope one day you get the BFPs you deserve.

Love

Morning Everyone

Loulou Maria Snowdrop and Stockportsun - Sorry to hear the bad news. 

This is my 5th ET (3rd FET) and someone asked me if it gets any easier?  I replied No it doesnt get any easier - you just learn to deal with it a bit better!!!  As you say - the skin starts to thicken a bit - However when the hormones have calmed down and things get back to normal you find a strength that makes you chomp at the bit wanting to try again!!!  No matter what the last experience was like!!  We are surely a set of Tough Birds!! ;D

Caz - Good Luck - Heres to the HCG rising!!!


Lots of Love to Everyone

Snowdrop. KathY and MariaC- sorry to hear your bad news.

Baz- hang in there at work- at least it keeps you too busy to analyze every ache and pain

Caz- fingers crossed for an hcg rise- it's hard to get a maybe when you just want a yes or no.

I have got a stinking cold that developed overnight. Am convincing myself this is a bad sign, though DH is more pragmatic- "it's just a cold, nothing to do with pg or not". ET was last Friday.

Hiya Everyone

Sending everyone who didn't get the result they wanted a big hug. I am truly sorry  :'(

For everyone else who is still waiting for "the day" and is having niggles, twinges, paranoid thoughts, repeat after me.............................................

I must think POSITIVELY...........................
this IS going to work...............................
I am NOT paranoid of twinges and niggles................
I WILL last without doing a test before my test date...
I WILL NOT get paranoid everytime I go to the loo.....
The embies WILL stick..........
They WILL NOT drop out.................

......................repeat this 10 times and you'll be fine.

I'm going back to my padded cell now  ^NahNah^  ^roflmao^

Snowdrop, so sorry yours was not to be this time.  :(

treen, don't fret about the cold. I had the sniffles last week and...er...I don't think it's done too much harm.

AliC, you're little mantra made me laugh! Thanks for the cheering up. I think I'll be joining you in that padded cell some time soon.

No news from me yet, just popping in to wish everyone testing today and tomorrow the very best of luck.
Anyone testing after that...resist the temptation to test early. Really isn't worth it!

Hi Girls

Just thought I would pop in.  I have been to the hossie to give my blood sample this morning.  I havent done a HPT at all (I did this first time and vowed never again!!!).  I now have the day off work to stew!!! ::)

I have a little plan in my head - I know its silly but I will tell you:-

Like most girls when I was younger I thought about who I would marry what my dress would be like and where we would live and about children.

I have done marriage but soon after starting on IVF I realised that I would never be able to do that thing where you do a HPT and then coyly wind my DH up and anounce to him that I was pregnant!!!

So I have just got back from the shops with supplies for any eventuality!! ;)

I have a packet of lemon buns - if it is positive I will literally put a bun in the oven and leave a note on the kitchen table for him to have a look (he is at work at the mo and doesnt want to know till he gets home). 


I will be able to celebrate by eating the buns!!!! ;D

If it is negative, I can still eat the buns - ALL of them this afternoon before DH gets home.  Plus I have a bottle of wine, a packet of 10 cigs  ^evil^ and a packet of Always Ultra!!!

One way or the other we will be ok!!!

I am going for now - will post again to let you know whether the wine and cigs are still intact or not (If I am sober enough to type that is!!!)

Love

LisaH

I have just joined the 2ww... :-  et yesterday.I have been reading this site since i started ( first ivf) and it has kept me sane.
I have high fsh and responded poorly to stims so am in a state of shock that i have got to this point.
Waves of panic and then extreme calm are washing over me so I've been siting trying to work out how to join in.After a few glitches hopefully it's working and you can actually read my blurb.
I have had bad stomach cramps since before ec so am trying to stay calm re af ssymptoms
Also I'm a bit scared to move.Luckily not working just now as work freelance but think I may go crazy over the next 13 days.
your all great on here I'm so lucky to have found this site.
:)

Hiya Lisa

You must be so anxious, nervous and excited all at once!!! I can't imagine how you must be feeling!!! I've got everything crossed that you get a BFP  ;). Also, congrats on not doing a sneeky test at home, that in itself is an achievement!!! Absolutely love the idea of the buns!
Liza, good luck for the next 2 weeks. I had my et last Friday and I have been driven insane too with all the niggles. Luckily today I am not having any (still don't know whether that is good or bad?).

Hope everyone else is doing well

Ali xxxx

Hi girls,

Liza - welcome to the 2ww!  I'm a little ahead of you, I had ET on the 17th and I test on the 29th.
My fsh is ok but like you, it's my first cycle (ISCI) and I didn't have a brilliant response (4 eggs, 3 good enough for isci and 2 fertilised) - so I can't believe I got to the 2ww too.  I also got stomach cramps during stimming (could hardly walk :( ) but can't remember what I was given for that.  After EC, and especially after ET,  I again got stomach cramps (apparently common response to cyclogest) and my clinic prescribed ritodrine - it has worked wonders!  
Hope this helps!

Ali - I have been repeating after you, so I'll be joining you in the padded cell!  ;D

LisaH - brilliant plan!!!  ;D

Love and good luck to all,
Moni xxx

Oh God this is torture.

Had my bloodtest today and it had come back borderline with levels of only 33.  This is apparently half of what it should be.

I have to be retested on day 5 but she didn;t sound hopeful, and said it might be ectopic.  Great. :'(

I have had two positive first response tests but apparently these count for nothing.

Is there any hope do you think??

Allie.

Hi Ladies,

Just a quick post as I am supposed to be working  ^evil^.

Well I am having no signs at all yet, I don't know if this is a bad thing, I'm trying not to look into too much.

Alidan, be  ^reiki^, it could still be ok, fingers crossed for you.

Lisa, I have my fingers crossed for you,
^goodluck^.

Hello to all the new 2ww, welcome to the thread.

I hope everyone else is getting through the 2ww,  ^goodluck^.

Lots of  ^fairydust^.

Baz
