Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

LYD10, they didn't give me any lifting restrictions after my transfer, so I have been lifting my son. Are you instructed not to lift your son after transfers?? The only restrictions they gave were no strenuous exercise or bouncing for the first few days (and no sex of course). I hope it's ok I've be...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Hi SueQuwi -my number of eggs varies quite a bit between cycles. My first cycle for baby #2, we got 6, then the last one we got 12. We usually get some of them to fertilize (maybe 2/3), but we've never had any make it to freeze. I just hope we have some good looking embryos to transfer on Saturday (...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Kerpupples, thank for the information on the hyperstimulation. I hope it doesn't happen. This time I got so sore from my trigger shot; I was amazed! Keep us posted on your biopsy results! Michele, it was so good to hear from you again. I'm sure this past week has been SO emotionally draining for you...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

I have another quick question for you guys. With an ER happening on Wednesday, do these lab values look ok to you? Estradiol (E2) 2739, LH 4.21? I looked at my past cycles and my Estradiol was never that high before retrieval. I hope this is a good sign and not a sign I will be hyper stimulated this...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Hi Ladies and Happy Thanksgiving! Michelle, I am so sorry to hear about your friend passing away. Cancer is such a cruel, cruel disease and when it attacks wonderful people it is just so unfair. My heart goes out to you and her family; it sounds like she was an amazing woman. I'm also sorry to hear ...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Michele- so exciting to be starting your Lupron! I always have such a fresh sense of hope when I start the meds; do you? I hope your husbands pre-op physical goes well. Thanks also about your feedback in terms of bringing your daughter. I try to avoid it with my son, and sometimes my husband will co...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Quick update. Had US and bloodwork today. They can never find my left ovary when I first start stimming; does that happen to anybody else? Looks like 4 follicles on right side though...keep 'em coming! Any other updates from today? Happy Bunny; congratulations on your BFP! That's wonderful news and ...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Hello again ladies! I feel so bad I haven't been on for almost a week; crazy! I do find with a toddler at home, it's much harder to squeeze in extra minutes on the computer (but so valuable and worth it when I do of course)! It sounds like many of you already know each other from past cycles; that's...

Hello again ladies! Sorry it's been a few days since I've been on. Life can gets so busy sometimes! Neffi, how is it going on the Lupron? Do you have any side effects? If so, how long did it take for them to start? I did Lupron with the cycle we conceived my son and I remember that my chest was so t...

Re: IVF acupuncture / trying for number 2

Hi there! I just posted a new thread for those trying for baby #2. We had a son on 2/3/10 and knew we wanted to try to have more children sooner rather than later. We never really used birth control for the first year after he was born (hoping maybe we'd have one of those natural pregnancy miracles ...
