Hi

it's cd30, neg preg test, no sign of AF..

Neg test however I've used First Response preg tests which are rated the best according to some online rater (can't remember if it was COnsumers reports or not), it's supposedly most sensitive.

My cycle has been varying for over a year so I'm not sure if AF is just not here yet. I'm calling my RE tomorrow. I run a very high risk of ectopic due to tube problems - 50% in my left tube. They unsuccessfully tried this month to correct it w/Laparoscopy but the Dr wasn't able to repair it.

Thse 2ww's are so stressful... If no BFP this month, I start injectibles for IUI, we don't have insurance and my DH and I are still talking about whether we want to try IVF. Based on my age and FSH, apparently it's only a 5% chance of success. We don't know if we can go through the emotional roller coaster with those odds. We hope that God will bless us if we're meant to be parents.. We are still in the frame of mind that maybe it will just happen for us. My fiend who went thru IF tx unsuccessfully said to expect stages, including denial that there's a problem and hope that you don't need tx, and if tx doesn't work, an acceptance of what's not going to happen.

May we all be showered with Baby Dust!!

I think you are right in calling your re.

hi and thanks for the supportive words,

I had a blood HCG and progesterone drawn today, the nurse is supposed to call tomorrow with the results. I guess there is still a chance for BFP, but I feel like I'm on the verge of AF...it's just not starting yet.

I so agree with you about the importance of having time as a couple. As much as all this can be emotional and you can spend hours reading, researching, and visiting online boards, it shouldn't have a negative effect on a marriage. Unfortunately, I've heard of that happening for some people.

4+ yrs, my heart goes out to you, I pray that the next course of treatment is successful and that you're soon in the 'Good News to report' postings! We've only been ttc for 9 months, but only really seriously since Sept. My OBGYN sent me to an RE right away because of my age..(42), we're running out of time and they say every month is critical.

thanks and baby dust back at ya!!

Hi:

I had to smile at your last post. I am 41 and 11 months. Don't want to rush the 42 too much! ;-)

I am on cd32 and no sign of AF. Three hpt were neg so far. But I had a blood test done yesterday. I feel pg and have heard of other women who don't have a pos result with hpt right away. Anyway, I feel for you while waiting and pray for great results for all of us.

Hugs,

Rhonda

Hi

any word on your BPT? I hope it was +++++. Mine was negative as I expected. Also found out my progesterone was low - 0.7; will ask tomorrow at Dr's what their range for normal is. I'm supposed to have my FSH drawn tomorrow and have an ultrasound before I start on injectibles. Because AF was a few days late, it totally messed up my work schedule, I was supposed to fly to 2 clients this week. Because I had to have the ultrasound before I start injectibles, it was reschedule or wait a month to start the meds. Well, Dr had said before that every month counts. So I cancelled 1 client trip and will work from home those days instead. On the other hand, my schedule the remainder of the month should include enough flexible days for the followup ultrasounds and the eventual IUI. Although, I work fulltime I'm fortunate that I have some flexibility.

hope all is well,
