Re: May cycle buddies :)

EShepard - I had my dosage increased twice, once they doubled it. It is not really a bad thing, it just means your body isn't responding quite like they want. 6 follies is great, hopefully they are all good quality. I am crossing my fingers for you! rio - I am sorry about the bbq. It sounds like a r...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Eshepard - I am sure the shots will go great! The first one is always the hardest. Just focus on the goal! I thought the gonal was the easiest, the needle is really sharp and small so it doesn't hurt, also if yours in the fridge let it sit out for a few minutes, and don't keep the needles in the fri...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

rio - I am so sorry that the shots are giving you such problems! Lots of hugs. You are not being a baby at all, and your RE shouldn't make you feel that way, he should listen to how you feel. All these drugs can effect everyone so differently. I would also ask if you could do the IM shot in an alter...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Sophie - There are plenty of inexpensive ways to have a date=) When the kids were smaller and we didn't trust anyone to watch them without us we would have a little date afternoon at home. We hired a babysitter and then we would have a picnic and a movie in our room while the babysitter played with ...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

It couldn't possibly be rainy and nasty on a day I have bedrest... of course it has to be sunny and 77! Oh well, at least the kids will get outside and have fun with daddy. After doing everything by himself yesterday, last night he said he was exhausted and is very grateful that I take care of the k...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

EShedpard - In your box you will see all the vials with the liquid and across from the the vials of powder. You are going to draw up 1 cc of the liquid from any bottle. They give you lots of the liquid, so don't stress you don't need it all, the medication is in the powder vials. Then you will push ...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Thanks for all the good wishes. I am not having too much luck sleeping so far tonight... I am too excited. I know what to expect as far as the transfer goes (we did a trial-transfer), but I really want to find out how my little embryos did and I am praying that 2 made it to day 5. My RE does a blood...
