Hey ladies! I have an 18 month old daughter from my 6th round of IVF back in 2014 and we have started the process of trying for baby #2 in 2017. We may do a couple IUI rounds before using our frozen embryos from 2014. Any ladies who will be doing IUI or IVF in the new year?

Ma-espe- I never did assisted hatching. We talked about it but my RE said it didn't look like my embryos needed it.
Jandei- I've gone through pretty much every possible beta result situation. One time they started below 25 and didn't double and it ended pretty quickly as a chemical. Another time it started below 25 then tripled and kept rising for awhile and they gave me a 50/50 chance but I miscarried anyways. Another time it started out great at 89 but didn't double and I miscarried again. With my daughter it finally started high and doubled which seemed to be the winning situation in my case. I do know a few ladies who had low betas but had successful pregnancies so it can definitely happen. Try to be hopeful but cautious.
Futuredancemom - Yes meds are pricey! But I found that the estimate they give you is pretty high and based on the worst case scenario that you don't respond well and need very high doses. They gave me a $2500-3000 estimate and the most I paid one cycle was a little over $1000 I think. The other 2 cycles I did were way less than that but I had leftover and donated meds on those 2. Is it a good idea to be prepared to pay the highest estimate? Of course! Just in case...

Well, took another hpt this morning... line is not getting darker and on top of it I had some pink then brown spotting. Chances for a good pregnancy are close to nothing. Thank you mnor for reminding me that this happens and you just have to dust yourself off and try again. I try to tell myself that this is better than it not working at all.

Hey mnor0406, great tips about the meds! Thanks!
Hey Jandei, yes I bet everything other than BFP feels sub-par but I would agree that it's awesome that at least you had a result in the right direction! Because look mnor0406 eventually went on to have her daughter! So keep hope alive (no matter what happens tomorrow) :-)

ma_espe - well I hope that the one is THE one Is this your first transfer? What grade is your embie? Are you doing assisted hatching? Sorry if you had already told us in previous posts, don't have time to re-read everything right now lol
afm I'm doing ok. I went back for my blood work and the hcg went up from 19 to 26 in over 2 days. That was def not good newes. I started spotting over the weeked and by Monday morning had a full blown AF. As of Monday hcg dropped to 9 so if by Friday goes down to below 1 I can have another transfer this cycle. We shall see... This was rough I have to say. Good thing I never really had a chance to get excited. The whole time I was sure this cycle was a failure, especially when =14dpo I was still showing bfn.
