SD: I wish you the very best today with your Retrieval...just be prepared for someone to call you with a life-altering crisis, like their cat's hair is falling out, and they won't understand why you can't drop everything today and be there to help sweep up the fur! Rest assured, though, they will be...

Ruby, Glad to hear it's going better!!! It's a tough grind no matter how you look at it... I think the fact that you're donating eggs is outstanding...given everything you are currently going through, that's a truly selfless act that could make someone else's baby hopes come to light. I live in NH, ...

Ruby, Good, you sound better...we can't blame him for being nervous, but you know it will all work out.... Lupron is going fine...I've been tired with a similar headache, but I'm not convinced that's not attributable to allergies. I will be assigned a new day 1 tomorrow, and I will start the Follist...

Hi Everyone, Just trying to catch up...this board grows so quickly!!! Ruby, So sorry to hear about the dilemma you're dealing with...is your DH having second thoughts about the TESE or the donor sperm? My DH has a count that rival those who've had a vasectomy, so just remember, it only takes a few. ...

Hi Ladies, WOW!! Was gone for a mere 24 hours and 2 more pages!!! Daisy-Welcome!! Rubylee and I are right there with you time wise... Rubylee- No therapy for DH...his counts are usually aroung 10,000, which is enough to grab a few good swimmers. I think it's interesting your DH is on Clomid, but I'v...

Sameera- You and your babies are in my prayers...I still maintain the 2ww is the WORST part of the whole experience!! Are you a HPT addict as well?? Yellow- (my favorite color FYI) The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem...I'll let you know if the program worked in about a month!!...

Here we go again!!

Hi Everyone, Thought I'd jump on the wagon...just starting my second fresh cycle... I would've started sooner, but I had to finish the 12-step HPT addict program first! :? RubyLee, Welcome to the crazy life! I started my BCP's on 4/10, we are only a day apart, you've got a buddy if you'd like one......

Hi Beachbaby, Thanks so much for your reply...I thought no one was replying because it didn't sound promising... I test again tomorrow, my nurse said it should've been over 100 when I tested...everything I read online indicates that it's probably 50/50... I took a HPT (just because I wanted to prove...

Got results...more questions than answers...

Hi Everyone, Just looking for a little advice from anyone with a similar experience... Just got the call, LSP (new term: Little, Skinny Positive)... at 9dpFET, my hCG was only 35...nurse did not sound optimistic. Since I cheated on Monday and had my PCP do a test, I know that my level was 13 a few d...

Emma and Beachbaby, My prayers are with both of you...the 2ww is the root of all evil. As we speak, I am actually waiting for the call...it's 4:30pm here and I'm playing mind games wondering if they make the "good" calls at the end of the day after the"bad" calls?????????? I'm sure my nurse would no...

Vicky and Julie, Thanks for the kind words...here's hoping! I swear, at this point someone could say "I had the urge to shower everyday and I had a BFP..." and I would take that as a positive sign..."REALLY?? I have taken a shower EVERY day since my transfer too!!!" Truly crazy! Emma, I am testing t...

GHOST or anyone...quick question?

Well, my PCP called back with the results of my sneaky test on monday (she called me, I swear I didn't call)...I was 6dpFET blast, and my HCG was 13...she called the results 'intermediate,' I'm cautiously optimistic, should I be?
