Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Lauren319 - Can you ask for Crinone instead? Once I discovered there was an alternative, I asked for it. Based on what I know, it's as effective for fresh cycle (US). But from what I've read, some countries don't even prescribe PIO anymore, like Canada. Leora - You go girl! Keep up the good work. Tu...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Is betabase.info down for anyone else? I haven't been able to look at it for 3 days now... Me too! And that's a really bad timing as I am currently obsessing over my hcg level! 16 DPO = 520 18 DPO = 1260 What is the correlation between hcg level and multiples? And ectopic? My ultra-sound is schedul...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Leora – I can’t imagine using the big needle to inject! You are brave. I would have gone back home to get it. Ninde – Sorry to hear about your issues. Could it be due to a combination of things? I have to admit I haven’t been exactly into it since we started the IVF process. I realize there’s MS but...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Gina1976 – I am not crafty AT ALL! But do post a picture when you are done  HopeThisWorksM – Happy 2WW. I am there too! Laura – How was the birthday party? When are you POASing? Leorira11 – Finally! I’d go to the appointment too. Hopefully this is enough for a baseline. And thanks for your response...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Hello everyone, Transfer was yesterday and I am already a mess! Can anyone help with this... 1) How long does the hcg trigger shot stay in your body? I took 5000 units on April 7th. I meant to POAS before the transfer but forgot. 2)Re POAS. I read I can test 9 days after a 5 day transfer. When do yo...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

leorira11 - I hope AF comes soon. Funny how it works. When you don't want it, it's there and when you want it doesn't show up! Ninde - Are you able to pursue both adoption and IVF at the same time? LauraN -I hope the little girl sticks. I must have missed something. Why did you have to do a biopsy? ...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Hello everyone!
Good report today! Out of the 17 eggs fertilized, I have 9 that are grade 1-2 so we're doing a 5-day transfer on Saturday. The rest of the eggs are fine, just not 6-7 cells grade 1 or 2 so we might still be able to freeze them. We'll see on Saturday!

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Ninde - I second what others have said. At my clinic, there's 9 weeks of progesterone injections. Based on what they said, the cream is as effective for fresh cycles so I asked to be switched to that... but it's definitely important! I think you should change clinic if you can. ASF - Ninde, you were...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Julia73 – Beta looks good. And those kittens are so cute! Ninde – I still not convinced it was AF… so early. Have you talked to your doctor recently? What are they saying? At my clinic, 25% of their patients is between 40-44 yrs old. They still accept patients 45yrs old+ with donor eggs. So, you hav...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Hi everyone, just a quick update on my ER... I am crampy but doing OK overall. They retrieved 18 eggs. You know the drill. They will call tomorrow to tell me how many fertilized and Thursday morning to confirm a 3-day transfer or reschedule to Saturday for a 5-day transfer. I can see the light at th...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Sunshine1576 - Sounds like a good idea. There must be a lot of schools or colleges for your DH to apply? Ninde - I am sorry the bleeding haven't stopped. I am not an expert but it does seem odd. AFM- We triggered last night. In addition, they wanted me to do a follistim shot (450 units! This is HUGE...

Wow, lots is happening this week. Julia73 - Congrats on your BFP. Cyn22 - I am so sorry. :( I have no idea how a frozen cycle work so looking forward to learning too. Ninde - I am crossing my fingers for you. Hopefully the bleeding will stop soon. Looking forward to Thursday. Leora - Happy Passover....

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Another OMG is this normal... Day 5 of stimming, 14 follicles all about 11mm, E2=1057. The dr is decreasing my follistism dose to 75 instead of 150 (he had decreased the menopur from 2 to 1 vial 3 days ago).

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Sunshine1576, I am so sorry. I hope your DH find another job quickly. Not the kind of stress you needed. In the meantime, it sounds like the promotion may be a good back-up while your DH finds something else. :(
