Hi Bobo, I've been down there...my brother lived in Del Rio for a few years...hot but beautiful! I've had the same symptoms...just mild cramping for a few minutes, then gone. The embie was supposed to implant yesterday, so I am hoping last night's cramping was it... My stomach is finally getting bac...

Bobo, I feel like I am looking in the mirror!! Our church has a healing service every Sunday after the regular service. We went today and prayed for our little embie to attach...but we know that it's God's will and we will accept either outcome. One thing struck me in particular, one woman prayed fo...

Bobo and Stacey, Welcome and Praise God for both of your miracles! HE truly deserves the glory for all of our blessings, and I can't imagine going through this crazy process without Him. We were tested as well...we had consulted with our minister after our diagnosis. We were unsure if IVF was the ri...

Stacey, Glad to hear everything went well and you're feeling ok...don't be too disappointed about the 2 embies...that's all it takes!! I have been EXTREMELY bloated, like I said, I just can't get rid of it! Other than that, just eat your protein and drink your gatorade. With everything I read about ...

Hopetobe: How did you make out today??? Hope you're feeling ok... Call me crazy, but the PIO shots (now on day 4) have not been bad at all. I am a little sore at night if I lay on my side, but barely. Poor DH turning white after each injection is worse than the actual shot! Where are they suggesting...

I'm in NH...just over the Massachusetts boarder... Don't be nervous about only having 7, I had 10 over size 10 today, and a few more close behind (I've never been so excited to see black blobs on a screen!). I was just as nervous when they said only 7 at my first ultrasound (which was what prompted ...

Congratulations! Yes, as it stands I will probably have the retrieval around Thursday... I went for my second U/S today...up to 10 follicles over size 10, and 19 smaller ones!! Back again this Saturday... If you're worried about increasing from 7 (as I was) it seems to be the pattern, they just popp...
