FX for you shanessa!!

i shouldn't test at until thursday, but have been having symptoms so i think i'll POAS tomorrow morning, it's early, but what the heck?! i have been having bad back pains today, and i know that's usually a sign of AF, but not for me. last year in august i had a chemical and one of the signs was bad back pain at 11 dpo, which is today and today is also 11 days past iui. it may still be too early to test tomorrow, but i'm feelin' it this cycle.

tarheel - how are you doing holding out until later this week to test?

Hi Melissa - what does PAL stand for? I agree it is hard to exeperience or absorb the pure unknowing joy of those who have never been through a M/C. Our joy is always fleeting as we worry about the next step/milestone. I don't think you actually relax until you are holding that bundle safely in your arms - counting toes and fingers.

AFM - My beta is on Sunday am, I get the results in the pm. Still no yet. This would make me 3 days late for my normal cycle (and 7dp5dt or 14dpo). I think my temps are rising if I go by the temp I should use per FF (not sleeping much so this throws off the readings). But not like they did with DS. Still crampy (I usually have one day of mild cramps with AF about 3-4 days before she is due - sort of a save the date notice ) CM is creamy, still mildly nauseaus (get this way with AF too), still have the throat irritation. I thought the 1WW would be much easier - NOT!

I found this NYU medical site that gives some guidance on the 5 day transfer process (http://www.nyufertilitycenter.org/ivf/embryo_transfer). Apparantly when I tested on Thurday, hCG was just starting to enter the blood stream. It wont be high enough to detect a pregnancy until Sunday (beta day). So either way, I will know something on Sunday afternoon.

Tomorrow I am going to Sesame Place (in PA) with DH and DS (who is 4) and my cousin and her twin boys (who are 4; btw she had them via her third IVF cycle at age 44 using her own eggs!). I won't be able to ride anything or sit in the pool (although I will be wading in up to my knees and getting my splash on - LOL) but I will be able to forget this waiting hell for a few hours. I will be periodically lurking but I will touch base again on Monday/Tuesday.

Thread is pretty quiet. How is everyone else doing?

No AF #2 yet. BBT temp rose (98.0 to 98.2), POAS - BFN Beta on Sunday. Maybe I am testing too early?!? Today would make 13 day LP. I always have 11 day LP. I have never done an FET before so I don't know what cycle changes to expect. Dunno

Feeling a little lite headed and nauseous (dry heaved during a conversation with mom this a.m.), plus feel like something in my throat (my mom said she had that experience when she was preggers with me).

Well, on to the second longest day of my life. Sad

Hope the day is shaping up nicely for you ladies.

Yeah, Melissa!!!! So happy for you. Hopefully, you won't leave us too soon for the "Expecting" boards. DH will come around soon enough. Plus, you're giving your LO the gift of a new sibling. So great. Way to go girl!

Tarheel - taking your mind off of things is the best approach. Good luck and enjoy! Don't forget to let the masseuse know that you Might be pregnant so they go easy around the appropriate areas (pelvis, lower back, etc..)

OK For some reason I was still plugging into the wrong thread (August roll call instead of 2WW) so I am a little late to the party....

Melissa - OhmiGOD! :smileyvery-happy:YAY! They just don't have the right emoticons to express my joy for you. Don't worry about DH. He will see the light. My DH didn't get excited about DS until he heard the heartbeat and knew it was "real" LOL. Out of sight. BTW, thank you for rounding error comment. I like the way you think!:smileywink:

Below is a repost of my update that I originally posted on the August roll call (I am so out of sorts today):

AFM - CD25 and I am constipated! :smileyfrustrated:(sorry if tmi). Normally this is not good news, however constipation has been my earliest sign of pregnancy in my non-chemical pregnancies. The flip side of that potential good news is that my temps dropped (98.2 to 97.9) on Tuesday which led to a corresponding sink in my spirits. I tried to convince myself that it was an implantation dip...but I thought I already had that on Sunday (dip from 98.2 to 98.0) I am still very crampy (with some odd burning sensations in my sides) which I never get so close before AF. This a.m. my temp was up...slightly (97.9 to 98.0) and I have been feeling so sluggish/fatigued and back to peeing alot. The awful AF is due today. So of course, I am filled with anxiety everytime I go to the bathroom. I don't know what to think. I HATE THIS! :smileymad: This will be the longest day of my life.:smileysad: I said I would test on Friday but if my temp goes up tomorrow, I am definitely POAS in the morning.

Monica- hope those are good strange pains going on in there. Keeping my FX for you!

Melissa- WooHoo! I am so happy for you. Wishing you a H & H 9 months and I'm sure hubby will come around.  He is probably just in shock and will be smiling soon.

Update on me...today is 6 DPO/days past iui. Had some strange pains this morning in the general area of my uterus. It felt like sharp stabbing pain. Then this evening I've had cramping and back pain. I am on progesterone too (200 mcg 2x/day). Still have a week (or more) before I can test. Baby dust to all!
