Hi guys, I was going to wait to post after the embryologist (EM - i'm gonna to create an abbreviation since this word is so long :) unless there's already one for this. Anyway, they're supposed to call very soon, and i'm sooo anxious. I had 8 embies at ER, i think anything from 8-15 is good...i woul...

Hi ladies! Thanks so much for wishing me luck tommorrow...i'll let you know how things go. RBjean : thanks for the advice about not drinking too much...i think the procedure itself is a minor one, but emotionally for us, it's a much bigger deal. I wouldn't get too concerned about a low E2 on your fi...

Hope you all are having a nice evening. Thanks to all who wished me good luck tommorrow...yes, i'm hoping that they get more than they've seen before and they merrily fertilize like there's no tommorrow! I'm thinking about each of you as well and how were kinda at various stages, but all in this IVF...

Hi all, My follies have gotten very large, and they told me to go ahead and trigger for ER on tues!!! I can't believe it's come up so fast. I think the waiting for AF and BCP takes the longest, but after stims...things really start moving. I really felt kinda huge all day today, after the US, have h...

Good evening ladies, Val : sounds like you have a really nice sister who is very supportive. I find that you really need people during this procedure and the more we talk about it, the better informed we are. I don't know about you guys, but DH is not as encompassed by it as I am, reading about IVF,...

Good evening ladies, Venus and Kim: thank you for the great advice, it was comforting. I think i'll be okay, now i'm beginning to think a PMA helps more than anything. Worrying doesn't help anything. I actually read 1/2 of that book that people have been talking about called "The Secret" - its kinda...

kim: do you have a throat infection? If amoxicillin is "resistant" or does not work against that bacteria, giving you a higher dose doesn't help. Bactrim is probably okay if you are PUPO yet, but i don't know enuf about that. I would find out what it is you have. It's annoying if you have to cycle y...

Hi everyone, went for BW/US today after 3 days of stim..my E2 is 426 - RN should this was good, but they only saw 3 follies on the left (10-11mm), none on the right...RN said there weren't even small ones, so the right might be quiet the entire time..did anyone else have no follies initially, and th...

Kim: yeah, how do we predict which will implant when...its all a game...i've heard pineapple and other anecdotal stuff help. We're not doing shared risk either, just like you said, after 3, less chances. The AP is $80 per week? - does that mean one session? They told me $125 for the 1st session, the...

kim - cool, you're from Shady Grove too. I like the annandale office, and Dr. Saffan is very optimistic about me, but was actually suggesting a 4th IUI which i declined - enuf's enuf. How was the rockville office for the ER and ET? I think that's the only place they have these procedures, right. Ar...

Hi ladies! I'm excited that most of you are close to me in stimming etc. Its cool to know there are professionals in the group. I'm a physician and just finished a subspecialty in infectious disease. Doesn't really help me at all with this RE and IVF stuff, just as chicken with the shots. I'm convin...

Thanks all for your advice. Jharris...you were right on, the aspirin needs to continue for the whole cycle except right before ER. The nurse said for the injection to make sure the bevel is up and angled slightly. Turtles..I like the idea about the jab, i think i'm too slow and gentle. The nurse sai...

Good morning to you all. Wow...our post is very active!! I have a couple of questions...do we continue on aspirin for the entire cycle or just while on BCPs...i kinda stopped it when i stopped BCPs..don't like to be on extra meds. These stims are tough - i'm hurting already. Stim day #2 today...I'm ...

Hi everyone, I'm kinda on both the june/july and aug/sept threads...but feel that both groups have people not in my cycle...they are sooo supportive tho' and i'll keep in touch with them as well. I got excited seeing this thread since my ET will probably be around july 23rd or so. I just started sti...
