Two gestation sacs. Two yolk sacs. One is quite a bit smaller than the other. Dr was very noncommittal about it saying we will see what happens at the heart beat sonogram. Next u/s on wednesday. If heart beat is detected then that is the end of PIO and me@drol. Yippee. Only prenatal vitamin and e2 program suppository. That I can handle.

Symptoms.......hmmmm none to speak of.

The occasional ovary pain. Lack of hunger but no nausea. Breasts really not as sore, but nipples are like twice the normal size. Could I be imagining this? Mild cramping that feels more like indigestion than any thing. Still waking up at 5 am.

Stuck our heads in babies r u*s yesterday. How does any one ever decide what is essential and what is fluff?

Hoping or the best on weds.

Nothing new to report. Awaiting u/s tomorrow. Won't have a heart beat yet, just see the sacs.

No symptoms at all. Bbs are less sore now that I am off the injection e2. Still wake up at 5 every day. Then can't get back to sleep. Is this medrol related?

I do have a headache. Hope it is not some kind of sign.

Traveling on Thursday. Hope injections go fine on the road. I consider myself pretty flexible, but the left side is really difficult to get.

Intralipids tomorrow

U/s next wednesday

Still worried beyond belief. But I totally love the re's office. Everyone is so nice. I see the re every time and although he is not the most personable I still feel like he cares. In addition, I get my blood drawn at 8 and we have the result by noon! In addition the re calls personally. Embarrassing fact. My husband is in charge of most correspondence. For example, the re calls him and not me. DH also takes care of all monetary stuff and the donor coordination (and most of the selection) I wanted to reduce my stress levels this cycle.

Any way that is the update for now.

Been AWOL. Didn't really feel like jinxing myself. So only a brief note.

Tested by hot

6dp5dt. LSP. I have developed a new acronym for women like me who test too early. Little skinny positive. It happens when there is just a hint of a line.

8dp5dt BFP well just a little more noticeable from day before.

9dp5dt. bFP using digital. It came up in less than a minute

10dp5dt. Beta #1. 181

Still worried. have cramps that come and go. Last time beta doubled then two days later it all went wrong. No migraine this time. Maybe that is a good thing

Go for beta #2 tomorrow am. Hoping beyond hope . Just trust in the odds. Something is bound to work this time.
