Hi all! This is my first post after much lurking - I can’t tell you how much reading other people’s stories has helped me over the years!
I’m 37, DH 47 - we’ve been ttc for 6 years - we’ve had a battery of every test imaginable and we’re unexplained. We just did our first IVF (after 3 failed rounds of clomid, 3 failed IUI’s and many years of saving) and transferred 2 perfect 5d blasts on 10/30. Yesterday, 10dp 5dt we got a positive beta of 54. :cheer:
We’re cautiously excited, even though it seems a little low. My Dr. didn’t ask for a second beta, but instead scheduled an ultrasound in 15 days. (although I think I’m just going to march into the lab and demand second one anyway… I don’t think I can wait another 2wks!)
My question is, this morning (11 dpt), my bbs are not as sore as they have been. They’ve been pretty tender since a few days after the transfer and now they seem much less so. I have noticed that sometimes they feel fuller and more tender at the end of the day, but given that my beta was on the lowish side and bb soreness has been my only symptom, I’m worried that this diminished tenderness is a bad sign. Has this happened to anyone else?
(Oh, I’m taking 200mg 3x daily of progesterone suppositories - blech…)
I’ve had no spotting and no other symptoms other than some light cramping. Kind of freaking out! I thought the BFP would be the brass ring that would put my mind at ease, but it seems like the worries are just starting!
