    Rhonda!!! OMG, OMG, OMG!!!! I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOO excited for you!!! Congrats, mama!!!! And, for the record, that is much more than a faint line - that is a proper line, my dear!!! You have to call the clinic tomorrow, pronto!! How soon do you think they will do a beta (not that it matters, because you are definitely preggers!!!)?

    Rachael...girl, we both have been through quite a ride over the years and I am super excited we have conceived so close together. Thank you for all of the words of encouragement and the love. My clinic will get a call in the morning. I'll update everyone on when they will do my beta.

    Thanks sweetie!

    I have no idea what my due date will be. I suspect I will get that info after my first beta. It should be very late April or very early May based on when my donors first day of AF and when she started stims.

    One week ago today at 11am we transferred two beautiful day 3 embryos. We are at 7dp3dt. I knew for the past two days that I was pregnant. I worried that it was too soon to test, but I am so grateful for the reassurance this morning.

    You girls are the absolute BEST!! You sure know how to choke a gal up! I am so teary every day as I read everyones congrats and sweet messages. I knew a lot of you were pulling for us and had been with me through my prior cycles, but I mean there is SOOOO much love out there and I feel so blessed to have all of you.

    DH asked me last night if I told anyone (meaning friends & family he knows personally) and I told him no I hadn't, not even our DD. Then he asked about my website friends (all of you) and I said, OF COURSE they all know...and they have pics already! Geez, is he kidding???!!! LOL

    So, we told DD last night and she was so happy. She finally got her prayers answered and will be a big sis one day next year before her 14th birthday. I couldn't be happier!

    I've attached a pic of both tests...this morning being the most recent of course. You have to click on the thumbnail because the pic is small and you can't see unless you blow it up some!

    Thank you Mel!!! I am thrilled of course. I can honestly say that we have been determined through this whole adventure. There were times that I thought I might not be able to take much more disappointment, but I always ended up doing another cycle. We spent a lot of money and have cried a whole lot and I've even dealt with some depression, but in the end, we remained faithful and hopeful and here we are!!! I know my RE is probably saying I told her 2 years ago to just do the donor eggs, but in my heart I had to give my eggs a try. I was always encouraged by the fact that we had plenty on day 3 to transfer and the grading seemed pretty good, so we really thought we had a good chance.
    Well, maybe if we were rich we would eventually have had that golden egg, but I can say we did give it our all. We will never question what we did and we are so thankful that we even had the means to go that route with such a small chance for success.

    Thank you (and all the other lovely ladies) for making this BFP so special for us.

    OK I just found this thread - what a confusing thing to lose out beloved IVF thread!! But Ive read all the posts and I know you all feel the same way.

    OK Rhonda - I posted this in the clomid blog, but CONGRATULATIONS, RHONDA!!! I'm thriled that you're finally got your You such inspiration to me and all the rest of us waiting to cycle. I feel my BFP is just around the corner since you now have yours. Praying for a very H&H 9 months. I can't wait to hear all about your journey these next 9 months! You've been just like a sister to all of us with your love and support and I couldn't be happier for you. I'm crying as I type this and I just have all the love in the world for you and your LOs. xoxoxo

It's like taking the keys away and then saying "Sorry, get home the best way you can." I try very hard not to complain because I know all of us are STC and want the best for each other. BUT the dissappearing IVF forum has officially pissed me off.

    Sorry for the rant, but that's how I feel.

    I wish everyone the best in their individual journies.

    AFM: It'll be a while before I cool off, goodbye!!
    I feel the same way. Hope you're feeling better soon and I really hope they can bring it back. I'm being positive and assuming it is just an oversight and not intentional. They know how much it meant to us. Hang in there, cycle buddy!

To be in a place where you are not able to conceive by natural means is so different than the other struggles. We all have STC for some time and have gone through the normal struggles over time (temping, watching ovulation, clomid, etc), but we are beyond that and our only options are with medical assistance. Any new person who wants to know more after being told by her OBGYN she needs to see an RE and then is recommended for IUI or IVF can get so much out of those stories & experiences now buried in Clomid Blog. It's not what I am missing, it's the women who don't even know about the stories that will be missing out. They would never even suspect to find those stories in a clomid blog.

    I think it's fine that IVF sisters complain out loud so we can move forward and continue our journeys. So many have just completed cycles or are in them now, so this is very sensitive.
    Well said, Rhonda. You're always the voice of calm reason. Thanks for that, Mama!.

    Thank you. Hopefully they will be able to put the thread back. We're all here should you need to go down the IVF road. Good luck.

    They said I should wait so the number is closer to what is expected based on my cycle. Even though we saw something soon, if we test too soon the numbers will be lower than what they would be with normally timed beta. Since this is ART everything is timed to be consistent so it is easier to make accurate analysis and comparisons. I'm good with their response. My other RE in Chicago will be the one to decide however. If she says test earlier, they will have to (because of my IVIG). She will be in tomorrow so I will know for sure by tomorrow. I will either have beta on Wed or Fri. I think they will both be ok with Friday because of when I had my infusion therapy and it is still in my system, so I should be good for now. No chances though! Gotta be careful and make sure everything is done right so we don't loose the pregnancy. I know they will take good care of me and make the right decisions!

    Thank you for allowing me a moment in the spotlight! Feels weird!! I'm used to being behind the curtains!!
