Re: Please share donor experiences

Hi Dallas, Please don't take my experience as golden! My RE said this works for 85% and we just fell into that small group of failures. It's definately worth a try for you. I'm just in a funk this week because of the BFN that I got Monday. Hey, if I come up with the cash I'd like to try another dono...

Re: Ghost and anyone, advice needed!

Re: Fall 2010 Cycle Group

Hi all, Just a quick post. Still in donor limbo. Not much to report on that. Got the cost estimate more than I want to spend but it'll be worth it. I've been crazy busy again, still trying to catch up after the big wedding I did last week. House was a mess and Dh tried but couldn't keep up. I'll pos...

Re: Fall 2010 Cycle Group

Hi All, Hope everyone's having a nice weekend. The weather's great here in Chi-Town! 80s and sunny! 8) Sorry about being MIA! I had a huge wedding to do this weekend. It had 4 stops with set up. The bride was very disorganized! She had beautiful placecards with no table numbers on them, WTF!!! :roll...

Re: Fall 2010 Cycle Group

Hi All, Sorry to be MIA but I needed to process everything. I know my eggs are old :( so I'm pretty sure at this point I'll never have my own child again. DH and I had the donor talk yesterday. He seems to be agreeable to that. He knows how bad I want this and knows we can't wait much longer. He tal...

Re: Fall 2010 Cycle Group

Hi All, It's done! BFN!! :cry: I knew it was over because of all my PMS symptoms. I also swear I saw them both come out. I don't know where to go from here but I don't see the RE until the 20th. Hoping he'll give me a phone consult before that. If I actually looked or felt my age I can understand wh...

Re: Fall 2010 Cycle Group

Hi All, Yeah, still haven't POAS! :roll: I'm about ready to because I have a terrible headache which must be a migraine because it isn't responding to Tylenol. Unfortunately that's all I can take if I'm pg. My migraine medicine usually knocks it right out but I can't take it until I know for sure. I...

Re: Fall 2010 Cycle Group

Franny,
Glad to hear your DH is doing OK. Oh Hun, please hang in there! :( You transferred 3 so you could still have something in there. Don't give up yet. You've been through so much. You and Barry are both in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs to you!

Re: Infertility in more movies?

Hi All, I saw "Maybe Baby" with Joely Richardson and Hugh Laurie a few weeks back. It is a very true to life depiction of IVF or IUI don't remember but it was an ART. It had quite a bit of British satire thrown in which made it hilarious at some times. Don't want to give away the ending but it shows...

Re: Fall 2010 Cycle Group

Hi All, Trying to stay out of crazytown. The wait is killing me. I still don't want to torture myself with those evil sticks. Ugh!! :roll: I'm anxious about beta but even more anxious about the 12 wk wait for the testing. I know the huge risks for genetic problems at my age and I can't stop thinking...

Re: Fall 2010 Cycle Group

Hi All, Just wanted to check in quick with my girls. Not much going on here. Went for progesterone test today. They said if it's lower than 25 I'd have to up my dose :twisted: Ugh! Thankfully it was 26.6...Yay! 8) I would not have wanted to inject any more than I already am. Other than the sore butt...
