    So please keep praying for her and she appreicates all the love and prayers. She will be able to try again in a few months. But now she just needs to heal and get past this.
    My heart goes out to Michele. Please pass on the and thanks for updating us all.

    Is cramping a side effect of the PIO shots?

    Not that I remember. I think it might be either pregnancy or AF symptoms. Thing is you won't really know til you test. I think some people had cramps but I had back aches. Was sure af was coming and got a BFP! jenn had cramps from what I remember. Just don't get overly antsy. Stay calm and step away from the pee stick!

    When is ur beta scheduled for?

I'm so heartbroken myself because after all her struggles, she finally got pregnant and it was naturally.
    Oh No... !!! how come... any reasons why? That is unbelievable. I am so so very sorry ... I have no words. How sad and hurtful.

    I have no clue why. I haven't spoken/texted her since Friday. I told her to let me know if she needs anything. I'm sure she needs space. She did say they can try again in 2 months so at least she's thinking of trying again! And now we know she can get knocked up!!! So it will happen all in Gods time. I don't know why God allows miscarriages to happen but I can't imagine how hard it is. I mean just struggling to even conceive is so difficult. I can't imagine how Michele is feeling. It really sucks and I'm so sad for her. All we can do is pray.

    I wish they couldve done the d&c right away! I dint get why she has to wait a week. It's like mourning all over again in my opinion

    Your appetite picking up might be from progesterone. The cramps being an AF symptom totally throw you off. My back hurt like hell during my wait. I didn't take any Tylenol or anything. It was awful! It seriously was worse than my af backaches! I told dh I better be pregnant with the darn backaches or I'd be really mad I had to suffer through them lol. I get awful backaches with af and these were way worse lol.

    For me it was a sign of BFP ! I had lots of cramping, but they were a little different then AF cramps, my last BFN cycle I had nothing...I hope it means a BFP for you!! How many did you transfer? Im on the suppositories and dont have any cramping with them.

    Well, it was as DH and I suspected. Negative. My HCG went down. So my RE thinks it may have been a chemical pregnancy. He has asked me to go ahead with some other blood tests to check a few things out. I didn't have a very good connection when I was speaking with him so I'll have to ask the nurses tomorrow what it is that he wants to check for.

    Once we get those results back then we'll be deciding where to go for here. Most like will start IVF.

    So, good luck to all you wonderful girls in your tww! Hopefully see you there soon again!

    Good thing is you only have a few more day! Just stay relaxed (LOL - like that's possible) and stay hopeful. So easy for our minds to play tricks on us because every symptom is questionable! Don't go too !! Praying for your BFP!!!

    I'm just waiting on AF and she is taking her sweet time! 10 times out of the year, she is right on schedule. I guess this is an off month for us from taking the supplements. Once she comes, we call in to clinic and get instructions. They said I don't need to do day 3 labs this time, so seems I will simply start BCP once I call in 1st day of AF. We still are not 100% sure we will do April, but we have to make up our mind by time AF comes. I don't want to start BCP unless we are definately doing the April cycle.

    I think DH wants me to wait. He thinks one of my friends has been stressing me out way too much and it's not a good time to start. We let her move in on 1/15 to stay in our spare bedroom upstairs next to our daughters room, but only for 3 months while she saves to get an apartment. She had lost her job a year ago and moved to her hometown which is about 2 hours away. After a year of no success job hunting in that city and being under major stress living with her mom, I decided to offer her a place at our home so she could look for work here. She got a job in a weeks time and we were thrilled for her. However, she is 33 and a divorsee (for 2 years). She married her high school sweetheart and they were together since age 18. So, the divorce was pretty tough and they haven't at all gotten over eachother. She got engaged twice since the divorce (on the rebound) and now she is looking for love in all the wrong places. My stress comes from having a single woman who is dating more than one guy live under the same roof as my 12 (soon to be 13) year old. She has three times taken guys upstairs to her room and I let her know after the first time that it was unacceptable around my daughter. We don't want those type of influences around our soon to be teen. Anyway, she seems to have a problem with authority and I'm on the verge of making her get her own place before her 3 months are up. Every time we give her an inch (let her bring her new guy over to hang out, meet everyone) she takes a yard! It's frustrating and I'm loosing patience. I never expected this friend of 7 years to do a 180 on me when I only reached out to her as a friend. I guess this is what it's like to be taken advantage of. I told her a after the fist incidence that I didn't want anything to put a strain on our friendship and so we talked through our concerns. She explained that she was younger and single and wanted to have a social life and I told her though I understood all that, she would have to live it outside of our home. I told her since this was a temporary arrangement, I figured she could put her limbido on hold and be respectful of my home & my family. She agreed and said she was wrong and it wouldn't happen again. Well, here we are on round three after only 45 days in my house. So, this is the reason DH thinks we should wait until her 3 months are up. I'm ready to boot her out and not put my life on hold. LOL

    Oh honey I am sorry you have this extra stress but honestly boot her butt out as nicely as you can. You should not have to put your life on hold for anyone but your self. Give the gal the boot and then take the express train to a BFP!

    Totally agree. Your friend sounds like my mom. My mother tries to help but she ends up frustrating everyone... so stressful.

    Hi ladies! Just got my CD3 results back. FSH is 13.1 and estradiol is 90. Here's what it says on fertility plus (I think that's the name):

    "FSH is often used as a gauge of ovarian reserve. In general, under 6 is excellent, 6-9 is good, 9-10 fair, 10-13 diminished reserve, 13+ very hard to stimulate.
    Estradiol (E2) Day 3 25-75 pg/ml Levels on the lower end tend to be better for stimulating."

    I have no idea if my doc will treat me with those numbers. We have an appointment Friday morning to discuss options. Rats, rats, rats! Any thoughts?!

    Thanks ladies for listening. I just had that need to vent. I am pretty accomodating and reasonable, but I am also a Christian and a mother. Any responsible adult, regardless of age or status (parent or not) should know what is appropriate behavior around kids/teens. She is a good friend, but I've learned things about her behavior that I didn't know before she moved in with us. Her judgement is awful and she lacks self-respect. I don't want our daughter to pick up on any of those characteristics because her mom (me) is NOTHING like that!

    Best of luck to you. It's great that your RE is changing the progesterone to suppositories. One less thing to worry about.....

    I wonder if RE will recommend IVF since those numbers appear to be concerning, according to FF. Whatever those numbers mean, I hope you get a BFP really soon!!
