    @koj518 thank you ! Knowing you had similar hcg really helped me today.

    I dont know what’s going on with me. Ive been very depressed the past 2 days, because when i wake up from nap/sleep, i feel sad bec i would have a dream that i am not pregnant. Ive been crying. I think i need to stay away from those pregnancy tests. The cheap one from amazon is so inconsistent, same pee gives me different darkness, so again i bought frers today, and took 2 because i thought it was faulty as the control line was extremely faint, but same result for both. Im going mad i think.
    Also bec the symptoms i used to have like stomach upset, slight nausea, they are getting less. Im having back ache too since yesterday, and pimples, and i only get these when about to get my period. Ugh. Sorry about complaining. I feel like ill exhaust my husband soon w my whining. But now that’s out of my system. I hope i feel better.

    on a lighter note, @LadyVictoria it’s good i think you’re now having pregnant symptoms. I read and also my friends tell me they started around 5-6 weeks! ☺️ Byw i read a girl in a forum also had 4000+ first hcg, she had healthy pregnancy ☺️ I read too many yesterday i cant remember if she had twins but no molar pregnancy, i thought of you when i read it!

    @FTale i agree with you, i have been praying soo much! And i include you ladies. God does not leave any sincere prayer unanswered in 1 way or another. I know He will Bless us with babies/baby at the time He knows is perfect for us. Ttc is just so emotional and exhausting but will give us rest if we hold on to Him. :) my dad told me these on friday. :)

    koj: Good to hear from you and know you and your bub are doing good. Thank you for stopping in to give an update.

    LadyVictoria: Oh, yeah, you are sounding very pregnant. Just like Katz said as you enter the 6wks if you were feeling it before you will then. I found no matter what you do the morning sickness will have to pass on its own. I only got it from the trigger shot not with actual pregnancy but it was bear in the mornings then I was fine the rest of the day.

    Katz: Hugging you, fears are going to creep in no matter how strong we try to be. Just can't let them have the last word. And you are so right about God answering prayers. He knows best and I've learned to listen....didn't say agree because I am impatient...lol...just listen. And when you listen you will start to find a calm and understand he won't lead you where you shouldn't be. He knows your desires. So let it remain in his hands and enjoy every day of your pregnancy.

    I'm scared and excited to go to sleep to see if my temp rises in the morning. I'll be shocked but if not, onwards and upwards.

    :hug:

    Ovulated super early or late at midnight and I am so glad to get it over with. Hurt so bad. But I am officially in the 2ww. Just going to try and do an insemination this evening just to cover my basis. Would do it earlier but not sure if Hubby can come home early.


    How is everyone else?

    @Katzoemac I really hope that you start to feel better soon! It's tough when you have bad dreams because they can feel so real. I've been having all sorts of wild dreams with crazy things happening in them and it's not fun to wake up feeling so emotional. I agree that you should just stop testing for now. Faint control lines just means that your test lines are stealing dye from them, so that's a great sign! Nothing to be worried about. And I think it's hard to use symptoms to really tell us much because we have so much hormonal fluctuation happening right now that we can't expect to feel the same every day. I also had a couple pimples pop up but they seem to be clearing up far more quickly than they normally do when I get them. Just breathe! Think positively. I found a set of pregnancy affirmations that I like to say every day and I feel so calm and happy as I go through them! Maybe you can try something like that?

    And thank you for the reassurance. Literally everything that I've found has said that my HCG is fine and that we're right on target so I'm just mad that the NP made us freak out for nothing. Can't wait to see our little baby again on Friday!

    @FTale Yes, my stomach has consistently been upset in the morning for the past few days so I officially have morning sickness! It's pretty mild thankfully, and I hope it stays that way. It's funny, but having it actually makes me feel pregnant now! Even more than seeing our baby at the ultrasound lol I guess it's because I finally feel a physical change that I can attribute to the baby and not the progesterone. According to the IVF calculators I used, I'm 6 weeks tomorrow, but my IVF Center is a day behind that with their calculation so according to them, I will be 6+1 on Friday at my next ultrasound. Close enough for me.

    Best of luck this cycle! Hoping you get your BFP at the end of this TWW!

    Thank you so much ladies! Waking up to your messages made me feel less anxious. I really really appreciate your supporting and comforting words. From today onwards, i will try to be more positive and stronger, because it is 8 more months. :)

    @LadyVictoria thank you! I will def read those today ! I need anything calming. Goodluck on your ultrasound!! So excited for you!

    @FTale i agree, i get impatient and angry too hahahaha!!!! Just hold on tho. :) yayy for ovulation! Hopefully hubby gets home early.
    are you doing the at home insemination?

    He came home early! We thought about home insemination but was like ....nah :sex:

    :lol:

    Good go on staying positive. I'll be eating my own words of encouragement soon if I test bfp next week. It is by no means easy just the only logical route to go to keep ones' sanity.

    Time to turn in so I can hopefully see a rise in my bbt.

    Stay strong y'all!

    :hug:

    @Katzoemac Glad you're feeling better! The affirmations definitely help me to feel calm and it's also a special moment where I feel intentionally connected to the baby. Yes, let's embrace the positivity!

    Two more days until we get to see baby again. My IVF Center has me at 5+6 today but I'm 6 weeks if I go by the IVF due date calculators (close enough), so baby is the size of a sweet pea! I really hope we see the fetal pole and even a flicker of a heartbeat. That would be amazing!

    @FTale I'm glad you had the chance to BD again. I miss sex and have no idea when we'll get the green light ...I'll have to ask on Friday. Or make my husband ask LOL

    Yes, let's all be positive here! Good vibes only :D

    @LadyVictoria i agree!! Positivity!! ☺️ I got my bloodwork today, idk, my doctor does 3 blood tests before ultrasound. But im praying it will be great news today! Excited to hear about your baby!! My RE told us no sex until 10 weeks for us. Lol! Maybe it’s cos of the endometrin which you’re not on, not sure. Hopefully sooner for you!

    @FTale wooohooo!!!! Fx for bfp!!! Hopefully your 2ww is peaceful :)

    Totally amazing to see LadyVictoria!!! HUGS


    I ovulated really well btw, temp shot up and my doctor is going to put me on progesterone too. I had to ask and was shocked to learn she had never prescribed it before. She asked me all kinds of questions to see if I was just trying to self mediciate or really use to getting it from previous doctor.

    Well, I am bushed. Going to take a miday nap then back to work.

    Hugs

    @Katzoemac Best of luck for great results! I wish my NP had let me do a third beta just to see what my level was after 72 hours from the first. But we're past all that and all we can do is wait a couple more days. I'll be sure to update here of course.

    It seems like every doctor has a different opinion about when it's okay to resume sex. Some say after you see a heartbeat, others say a few days post transfer, etc.. I guess we shall see! I had no desire to have sex when I was on Endometrin. I felt so gross with it always oozing out.

    @FTale I'm glad to hear your temp is looking good! How odd about your doctor being so skeptical about the progesterone lol Glad you got the prescription though! A nap sounds nice, enjoy!

    Surprise Gentetic result back! I was told 3 weeks and I get a message today they are in.

    And they are GOOD!! out of 274 common genetic diseases or variants, I didn't have any. Now they can't test for everything in this one but they ruled out the most common. And I am so relieved. Plus I picked up my progesterone and will start taking them in the morning. Want to complete this day and start fresh in the morning. Also, I want to see what my temp is again...hahah

    Its been a great day. Thanking God for it and just enjoying every second.

    Hugs

    Thank you Bev....we are trying to relax and soak up some rays today knowing we at least have a fighting chance at getting preggy this cycle.

    Well I am laid out under a canopy hiding from the scolding sun. He is trimming trees..lol
