Re: July Cycle Buddies-FET anyone?

Well...I'm out. Went to the doctor yesterday for ultra sound/blood work for insertion this Friday but I ovulated. Darned stubborn ovaries!! Estrogen wasn't enough so I have to do a cycle with Lupron...shots yeah!! LOL. At least it's the little needle and I can do those myself. Lab is closed for 3 we...

Re: July Cycle Buddies-FET anyone?

jencas...no, it's not too early for symptoms. Not sure about the other girls but after a few days I started to feel like a pinching. I do think it would be too early to decifer any nausea or breast tenderness (at this point it is probably the progesterone) but the pinching was definately a good sign...

Re: July Cycle Buddies-FET anyone?

LOL.....I hear you! We only got 6 out of the last cycle and because of my age went ahead and transferred three. We're using the last three (insertion on the 16th). A little afraid because they are the least quality of the 6 we had (used the best three the first time). So glad you have such more chan...

Re: July Cycle Buddies-FET anyone?

Jessica, isn't it so weird to not have to do all of the visits and injections. When my Dr. said I only had to see him twice and only had to take a tiny estrogen pill (then later the progesterone of course ) prior to the insertion (which would happen in two weeks from my first visit), I was floored. ...

Re: July Cycle Buddies-FET anyone?

Hi Jessica. Welcome back. I too had a horrible miscarriage with the first embryos out of this batch. Hopefully this will be our time. It's my last shot. My insertion is the 16th.

So....here's to it working this time for all of us this time. Cheers to the frosties!!

Re: July Cycle Buddies-FET anyone?

Jenny, I know exactly what you mean. When we did our third IVF we produced 6 decent embryo's. (I have a very hard time creating the eggs...I max out on meds). We inserted the three best and froze the 3 with the least quality...but still good enough to freeze. So I'm kind of in the same situation. We...

Re: July Cycle Buddies-FET anyone?

Ew..ew...me...me...me...LOL. We have done three cycles and got a BFP the last time (April '09) but lost our baby in the first trimester. We have three frozen baby's we are using in July....we're very excited. Never done the FET before but I'm glad it seems WAY easier and faster. Starting Estrogen an...

Hi Ladies!

Hope everyone is doing great. I started the thread and miscarried. Went through 7.5 hours of labor at 11 weeks. My baby should be born January 7th and I'm seeing a counselor to try to get through it with a little sanity. It's been a really hard year thinking how far along I should be every single da...

Hi ladies. This will be my last post. I went to the emergency room Thursday night for a tiny bit of red spotting (I had been spotting brown for about 3 weeks off and on) and after an lenghty ultrasound found out that on my 10 week mark my baby was only measuring between 7-8 weeks and they couldn't d...

Hi ladies. Yes, I have been rageful too this week. Luckily hubby is very understanding and we kinda laugh about it later. Haven't thrown anything yet but I feel rage building up inside of me when he says something I don't agree with. Hubby talked to his nephew who's wife has a 4 month old and he sai...

dixie_chop - we got this one at Motherhood Maternity. It was the deluxe package and has two sets of headphones and a microphone so hubby can read to the baby later. It also had a prenatal cd and a postnatal cd (classical music I think). You can also hook up the microphone to the cd player. OH...AND ...

We will be back Monday so I will be back in full force then. MORGAN - OMG!!! That is amazing! I am so completely happy for you! Fraternals are comm...
