    [TRIGGER] Hi all, I wanted to give an update of my donor egg cycle.

    My transfer was 8/7. I POAS on 8/14 and it was BFP! My first beta was 8/17 and it was 497, 2nd beta was 8/19 = 966. My first u/s is 8/29.

    This was my first BFP ever. I've never once even had a positive POAS in 3 yrs of TTC - 3 IUIs and 3 IVFs.

    I know there is still a long road ahead, but I am celebrating one day at a time.

    2009:3 IUIs
    2010:IVF1 3/10 BFN, IVF2 5/10 BFN; new RE, IVF3 11/10 BFN

    Don't give up hope, it can work! Cherie TTC 5 years, 3IUIs, 2 fresh IVFs,1 FET, EDD 11/1/11.

    Jessica I am so happy to see this! Congratulations! Just a little over a week until your u/s! I get what you mean about the BFP. I never ever saw one either in over two years until our IVF. It's an amazing thing to realize your body IS capable of producing the pregnancy hormone. Please update and good luck!
