Re: Winter 2010-2011 Cycle Board

Oh Samantha. I am so so sorry. Maybe things will be okay tomorrow and you can proceed after all? Do they suspect OHSS? Are you drinking tons of gatorade? Praying for you and for good news, too. Loera...I did get the estrace, patches, and pio (Bill had to road trip it to the nearest specialty pharmac...

Re: Winter 2010-2011 Cycle Board

Sherry....everyone is different. For me it is exactly 5 days from the last shot. For others...could be anywhere from 1-7 days. Are you on the shot? Lauren is on suppositories and gets her AF 2 days before it is due when doing injectibles. So it is really hard to say. But, if I were to to guess (if y...

Re: Celebrities and IVF...

I agree they should not be required to disclose anything that personal, but it would be a positive public benefit to do so. Many women postpone child-bearing into their late 30s or even their 40s because they read about various celebrities having babies at that age. Heartbreak often results. This i...

Re: Winter 2010-2011 Cycle Board

Hope...Some people do, but MOST do not. Some girls are just more in tune with their bodies. Some also get implantation spotting some dont. I have and also have not with different pregnancies. You can not compare yourself with others. Hang in there! Praying for you!

Is there such a thing as doubling too fast?? Another beta scheduled for Monday 2/21.
Woohooo!!! Thank you, God! :D

Re: Winter 2010-2011 Cycle Board

Nwquiz...Thanks for the story. I do believe in miracles and am just not willing to give up yet...but am also going to stay realistic. You know...I just got to thinking. This whole estrogen thing is making so much sense now. I was on estrace pills AND patches for my FET in April (I had the tender boo...

Re: Winter 2010-2011 Cycle Board

Carol...I think 99% of women are on estrogen supplement of some sort during IVF and IUI. I'm literally shocked that you arent...cause we older women tend to have lower levels than normal...if I'm not mistaken. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I would definitely be requesting it. And, yes...I have be...

SD...Thank you and very interesting read. Babydreamz...Thank you. So the doc called and he really doesnt believe in E2 or progesterone levels because nothing has really been proven that it matters. I told him that I dont care whether it has been proven that I want to take a bunch of estrogen and at ...

Re: Ghost...and those who get E2 levels during the 2ww.

Rio...I just had another hsg done in October. Everything was good. I do have polyps/fibroids...but they keep saying that they're fine. When you say an infection...are you saying from the hsg or ? Chris...Doc says that since we arent picking and choosing among embryos and are putting all 4 or 5 back ...
