No they did my beta 8 days after a 5 day transfer and they usually wait 10 days after a 3 day transfer.

That's it?
I've grown at least a cup size in the past 5 days. My boobs hurt almost all the time. I'm tired. I'm bloated... I can't fit into my jeans. And I've come close to throwing up a few times. I wish it just would happen, already.

Hi ladies! For those of you who have unexplained infertility or poor egg quality, you might want to read this. http://www.business-standard.com/article/pti-stories/bpa-exposure-may-cause-infertility-113073100564_1.html I was drinking purified water in containers with bpa. I just switched to non bpa containers.
This link shows you how to identify plastics with bpa http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bisphenol_A

I have actually heard this. Too late for me, but I wonder if it affects AMH levels and if it's reversible.

Im wondering too! Im going to pay closer attention to the plastics i use, to see if that helps!
On a different note regarding amh levels...my amh level went up from .54 to 1.20 :D I have no idea if the vitamin D worked since I havent re-checked my vitamin D levels. My fsh also went down from 11 to 6.6

Just got back. I have two follies at 20mm each and few others smaller. He says the lining is good and I should O over the next 48 hours, which I dont believe coz ff says I O on Friday or Saturday. He also said to bd only 48 hours after the trigger shot today. Is that right or this man is just talking nonsense.

Well...both my successful IUI were 36 hours after trigger, so I strongly believe in that timing. BUT...I was having tons of bloodwork and scans to be sure when I was going to O. Also, if your follies are 20mm, I highly doubt you'll make it til Friday or Saturday to O. The timing is just of with FF b/c of the drugs. Good luck!

So can I atleast bd from tomorrow or after 24 hours? I didnt know it brings O sooner, I thought it just helps the eggs to grow.

Your RE, using ultrasound, would be quite a bit more accurate than FF. I would trust him.

Does your husband have sperm issues? If not you can BD anytime.

No not at all, he is perfectly healthy. I do trust my RE just that I just dont get him saying to bd only after 48 hours. Maybe if I had an explaination I would be okay. My other RE (he retired now) back in 2009, he would give me the trigger and say to start bd as soon as I get home. Thats why I was confused. Well the other RE, he put me on clomid and trigger for 4 months and didnt conceive at all with him. This cycle its Femara, folic Acid and Ovitrelle.

I wish we fertilise both eggs. I am crossing fingers for that. But either way is fine as long as I have a baby.
