Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Oh thanks! Someone called back from the hospital (they didn't know I had gotten a call already) so I got to ask questions. She said everything is fine, it's a good thing I am responding well. She did say that Day 8 level would be in the 1,000s so no idea why the 'internet' (some random thread on a b...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Hi everyone, I apologize for all the questions this weekend. I just got my E2 Day 3 blood test result. Holy cow - it's 227. Based on some quick readings, it's a Day 8 level. They are dropping menopur from 2 to 1 vial but I keep follistism at 150 units and Lupron at 5units. What does this mean??? My ...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Hi everyone, Hope everyone is doing well. I have a question - I am worried :( I started stimming last night (15hours ago - 2 vials of menopur and 150 unit of follistism). This morning, I took the garbage out. It was a little heavy with cat litter. Now I can feel like left ovary. No cramping, just 'f...

Greekchick – I am sorry Greekchick. I hope the news is sinking in and you can move forward soon. I have no experience with this – I wish I could help in the same way other ladies here have. Cyn22 – Congrats on the transfer Cyn22. I’ll be stalking you for updates. Ninde – Also stalking you Ninde for ...

Sunshine - I am! And found a couple of videos. This one seems to be from a good source:

Ninde - So exciting!!!

Leora - Do you generally feel down? Or is there something specific that is bothering today?

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

blueeyedreamer - I love SF. We've been here for 5 years and not going anywhere. Once you make peace with the real estate prices, all is well :D Greekchick - I didn't realize you were really in Greece! My DH has been to Corfu many years ago and loved it. Ninde - Blah as in not depressed but annoyed. ...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Wow, a lot going on! Good luck Ninde, babysoft and greekchick. The good news is that I am done with the birth control pill. I hate the bcp. But I am feeling blah. Day 7 of Lupron. I've got another week of it, sigh. My baseline is on Tuesday (March 27) so hopefully it will feel more real. I feel like...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Sunshine1576: I love wine country. I prefer Sonoma to Napa, more low key. My favorite thing is to go bike there. Feels so healthy after a long ride. I’d love to have a garden. We could maybe do one on our roof but I think SF is too windy. I tried growing herbs inside (basil) but it was a total flop....

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Ninde - Ah ah, you'd be surprised. I had a colleague here from London last year around this time. He was totally confused with all the St-Patty's Day t-shirts and was mildly annoyed that we kept calling it St-Patty's Day despite his long explanation!

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

blueeyedreamer - I am in San Francisco. We've been lucky this winter but it started raining last week and has not stoppped.

fvrogers - I didn't realize that. Gosh I don't know. I don't know what's worse, going crazy because of the needles or because I can't measure the progestorone in my blood :?

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

I found out last year that it is St-PaDDY’s Day, not PaTTy’s. The things you learn when you work with a lot of Brits! I still call it Patty’s because I like bugging them a little ;) Sunshine1576: Thanks for researching etopic pregnancies for me. Sounds like you are having a wonderful morning. I wish...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

LauraN (or anyone!): Can you explain how I can have an ectopic pregnancy? Ideally, my dr wanted to remove the tubes but he couldn't (blood supply to ovaries or something) so he ligated them. So my tubes are blocked and ligated, how can an embryo work its way up there?

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Back from the injection class. First of all, I have so much admiration for anyone who has gone through this, especially multiple times. I am scared and freaked out :( . I didn't try to do it myself but DH gave one injection to me (the small needle for menopaur). It actually hurt more than I thought ...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

I am so sorry Ackdelp :( Question.... What does "starting Stims" mean? Question 2.... I have a friend who is going through ER as we speak. She only had 4 follicles. What I don't understand is why they didn't try to change her meds during the cycle? They must have noticed that there were few follicle...
