Welcome Dream to be mommy! The fact you've already responded to Provera is a great sign. Hope you have fun in Hawaii.
Rainyday: Oh boy. Glad you are home and doing better. Hopefully you get your BFP on your first FET.
Stressed Out: My first pregnancy I just felt like I was getting my period for 2 weeks before testing positive (I tested but must have been too early because it was a negative, then tested postitive 2 weeks later). So Nico's right--early signs of pregnancy for many are almost identical to AF approaching. What day are you?
BOD: You must be about to transfer, right? Monday? Eek!!!!!
Hi Mon, you must be 10 dpo, right??

Hi Hannah! I have actually stopped testing (since I'm getting betas), so I'm not sure! But that sounds like a GREAT sign! Can't you just go pay for 2 betas rather than a million tests? I know Stacey did w/ a private doc, but maybe Ireland is different. I can't believe your clinic doesn't do them! Oh well, sounds wonderful!Me=31, DH=33, DD=4. TTC since April 2010. Failed Provera 6/10. Gained weight/reduced exercise, O'd naturally 1/11 and 3/11, CD 54 (chem pg). 5 rounds Clomid May-Sept., 3 ovulations, 2 BFNs, 1 chem pg, 2 non-responsive cycles.

Hannah - Don't think I've been over to congratulate you on the fab news!!! I totally understand your anxiety about not having a Beta. I probably could have got one if I really wanted and paid privately. However in the end I thought having a Beta won't change things, it is either meant to be or not. I would take your darkening pregnancy tests as reassurance that things are progressing. To answer your question, mine were probably the same as yours at 14 DPO if it helps. I'm sure over the next week you will feel able to back off from the daily tests. Are your clinic giving you an early u/s? If not, I just got a dating scan for £60. Pretty reasonable I thought.
Jily - Hooray for ovulation and fantastic estrogen. Truly I think some people get to a point where the meds can be a hinderance and aren't working despite being in recovery. Its just my own observations and thought, but I think the body can feel it is being forced to do something it could do alone and then you don't get the best conditions. Although the Clomid did eventually work for me, I was having a terrible response and I only think it worked this time because we had one determined little eggy in there. I'm sure you have your BMS schedule timed to perfection, good luck!!
Rainy - So sorry about the ongoing ordeal. Glad to hear you are feeling a little better, you certainly have been through a lot recently. I know its less than you wanted that made it, but it'll only take one good one. Hope you are back on your feet again soon. xxxBoth 30. Aug 2009 get 'healthy'. Lose 24lbs over 7 months.

Hannah-Hope your line keeps getting darker. I agree that you should just go have a beta done. It would be worth it.
Stressed- Nico gave you good advice on this 2ww. I had myself thinking I had every symptom possible and drove myself nuts. I know how hard it is but it will go by fast so just try and relax.
Dream- Welcome. I agree that you could def still gain some weight and decrease exercise. I am a teacher but also was doing personal training and teaching spinning classes on the side. You need to just think about yourself right now. You will not get fat or look out of shape even if you do gain a little weight. Just start walking and doing light weights. You will have a good story to share with your clients about how it is important to eat, but of course the right foods because ultimately your body is being deprived and I have learned as much as you think you have been so healthy in a way we have been harming are bodies.
Rainy- Glad you are home and doing better.
Mon- I tested out of my trigger shot at about 9dpo. I just would be cautious no matter what about continuing to test until at least 14dpo because of chemical pregnancies. It is a lot easier to just deal with the negative when you don't think you are pregnant if it were to happpen.
AFM-I have my first u/s and blood work yesterday morning after being on 75mg of gonal-F. I have 5-7 follies on my left ovary and 2-3 on my right ovary but they were all less than 10mm. My estrogen was only 98 so they are increasing my dosage to 150 for over the weekend and then I go back in on Monday. Does this seem ok to everyone? Injections are new to me. I am hopeful that the gonal-F is at least doing something for me. I just hope it continues to.
Hope everyone else is having a nice weekend!!

Jily-yay for ovulation! Have fun BMS'ing!
Stef--how you doing?
Hannah-congratulations! When's the beta?
Rainy-glad you are at hom and starting to feel better. I can't even imagine what you've gone through. Thinking of you!
AFM: 9 DPO and AF just started this morning I have to say, I didn't think I'd be upset because I haven't had a period in almost 2 years and I thought just getting my period would make me happy. BUT...I had my hopes up and it's just kind of a let-down. Just plain sucks. I am still thankful to know that letrozole works for me and I'm anxious to get started on the next round. So, today is CD 1--do you think my RE will let me start on Monday with another round since it will be CD 3? Is a 9 day luteal phase bad?

AJ: Sorry for the disapointment. I think we all hope we'll be one of the lucky ducks and get pregnant the first shot. I am also really glad it worked for you and you will start another round soon. A 9 day LP is not bad at all for your first O in years. You can expect them to get longer. Are you on progesterone? You should definitely request that next time.
PKeenan: Not sure about the progress on injects but w/ estrogen in the 90s something is happening.
AFM: beta went from 85 Thursday to 202 today!!! More than doubling, so I am a happy girl.Me=31, DH=33, DD=4. TTC since April 2010. Failed Provera 6/10.
