Sorry, thought I was the only one left on the board so stopped posting!!! My transfer was yesterday. Not only did I have my first 5 day transfer ever after 3 tries but we have at least 4 nice looking blasts to freeze!! We ended up transferring one hatching blast. I am excited but cautious. You get a little jaded by the time you hit your third IVF. Its hard to even imagine that it might work. But, fingers crossed!! I wish I could get zapped with some sort of amnesia for the next few weeks until my beta on 9/12!!

Ugh, posted earlier and doesn't look like it worked. Worry queen, I was thinking of you today. If the news was not good, I've been there, twice, and know how painful it can be. It does get better. Hopefully, you don't need to hear any of that and it was a bfp!!!

I had egg retrieval yesterday and they got 11 eggs, 8 fertilized. Double what I had in the past. I'm really hoping for a 5 day transfer this time!!!

Oh no!!! Are you sure it's not just spotting? I've read that you can have spotting early on. When is your beta?

Any POASers out there?!?!? Awfully quiet around here!

My retrieval will be on Friday. He said there are about a dozen follicles that look promising. I am really hoping for at least 10 eggs!!!

Woo hoo! E2 826! Still chugging along. Largest follicle is 15 on day 11 of stims. 6 on the right, 7-8 on the left.. This is going SO SLOWLY!! Looking at retrieval on the weekend. I'm hoping slow response doesn't mean poor egg quality!!!

Follicles bigger and estradiol up to 306!!! Phew!! Talk about a slow responder. I feel much more confident now that we will go to retrieval. They are all still smallish but there are 5-7 follicles on each side. Hoping some more join the party!! How is the wait going? Hanging in there? Did you decide whether to POAS?

Follicles slightly bigger today , E2 95. So hopefully I am just a slow responder and things will start to pick up soon. I am jealous about all of you in the 2 week wait...you are so close!! Try to keep busy and hope the time flies!!!!

If you are wanting to wait until the trigger would be out of your system,, that usually is out 10 days after trigger, so about day 7 or so after 3d transfer. Make sure you remember not to stress out over negative results.

WorryQueen....

I am from The July 2009 Boards....The October 2009 boards...The August 2011 Boards...AND the December 2011 Boards! Aside from my IUI's...all of my IVF attempts have been successful.....(With one MC)....

And anyone on here that knows me...KNOWS I am the WORST influence when it comes to POAS!!! I have a cheerleading outfit With the Letters POAS on it! I pee, pee, pee...every cycle!!

I always had a 5dt.... But would test at 6dp5dt..... And always got a BFP!!!! I suggest...... a combo pack... First response has a standard HPT and Digital test in ONE pack.... I have used this. I also Shout from the rooftops.... 'Clearblue easy DIGITAL!!!!!"... it is Pregnant, or NOT.... no guessing.

For a 3dt...Maybe test at 7dp....I always had high beta's..but that is not everyone's case....so 7 or 8 days past..you should have a pretty good inkling if it worked!

Good Luck!!
