Hi,
Daly, I do use nasal spray and eye solution and I did go to accupucturist today, I took a nap and two tylenols late and my headache seems a little bit better but still there. I really hope it will go away though.
JesJes I go to Dr Kustin and the washington center for reproductive medicine in Bellevue, he has really high success rates, my friend just got pregnant at his clinic with twins.

Vlada, I too got really bad headaches my last two cycles. Mine was mostly from the Lupron, but I know that many of the meds have that side effect. I know it's debilitating. I had to call my clinic and get them to call me in something. They gave me a prescription of Amedrine and let me tell you... I was so thankful. It helped a lot. You might want to ask them about it. It's a pain reliever and it shrinks the blood vessels. It really worked miracles.

Daly: They are not sure that they can't get to the right this time, but they couldn't the last time, so I don't think she's holding out too much hope. We'll just have to see. I did ask her about other options of getting them out, but she's not willing to look at any of them. She does the retrieval in her office, and not the hospital, so she wont do it any other way but vaginally. I heard you can go through the abdominal wall, etc... But she's not willing to go that route. She pretty much said the more weight I lose the better chance of the ovary shifting. Well... I've killed myself to lose the weight. I felt like she was saying I didn't lose enough. There's really nothing else I can do but hope now.

Well girls.....I have two follicles on my left that are mature enough, and one is actually borderline too mature. If it grows any more I'll lose it. It's at 20. Once it's at 22, she says it's too big. One is at 19. I have 11 on my right that are the perfect size.... between 16-20, but I'm not getting my hopes up on them. I'm just going to pray they can access that mega producing ovary. What a dissapointment ha??? If not, I'll be lucky to get one egg. I'm worried, but there is really nothing I can do. What a waste it will be to lose all those beautiful eggies.

Trigger is tonight at 7:45, and ER is Monday morning at 7:45. I'll take any prayers I can get, as this is my last shot.

Hello ladies, may I join????. I have been in February and March threads too, but I think I am more of an April buddy since I am having my transfer on April 26.
This is my 2nd IVF, I had my fresh cycle back in November, it was a BFP but unfortunately I m/c at 9 weeks, they were very sad times, but now I am ready for the new begining!. I have 4 blasts waiting for me, I am doing a FET this time. I am on estrogen patches and Lupron right now. I also started acupuncture trying to add that to the treatment, hoping it will help get pregnant and keep it this time!!!

Hope you are ok with me joining so late..... :roll:

Well ladies sorry I've been MIA the past few days, but since my ER I've been so sick, I had a low grade fever and was soooo sore. I'm feeling much better this morning. I couldn't even eat, DH made me breakfast this morning and all I could eat was 'bout half a scrambled egg and juice. My ER on 04/12 Thurs went great. We had a total of 17 collected out of 27 follies. Our fertility report as of yesterday was 12 of the 17 fertilized so 5 of my little eggos didn't make it. Our ET is on 04/17 Tuesday day 5 so please keep us in your thoughts and prayers......... :) As I'll do the same for all you beautiful ladies.

Hey all - yet again - lots happening - seemingly overnight!

BWHD - I was in the same boat last week when my left produced only 1 viable egg, and the right had over a dozen with 5 candidates.... Ultimately - they got 10 eggs, 8 mature and 6 fert'd.... so, you never know until you know. I too lost one egg (too big) - but that was a calculated risk or else cancel the cycle. Keeping fingers crossed for you!

JessJess - how faint was faint for you on 10dpER?? Good luck on your beta on Monday!! Maybe it showed up so early because it's :D :D (twins!! eek!)

Steph - any more POASing? it's still pretty soon. In fact last cycle for me, I had neg. HPTs and on day 10dpET, I asked RE to move up test since "I knew..." The RE would only go as early as 12dpET because according to them, even that was too soon to really tell. So, truly - you never know until you know.

Vicky - welcome!! stickies to you, too..... :)

melly -sounds like a great ER result, although sorry you were so sick... infection or OHSS possible? At least you are on the upswing now and ready for ET....

JackieG - I can relate to the bloating - I shot up on my E2 scores from 1400 to over 3000 in one night, so got the mild OHSS - but, it subsided pretty well once I started bedrest... Good Luck!

to those I missed - sorry - thinking of you anyway!

Cheers,
Lisa

Hi all hope eeryone is ok just came on to check on steph but i see no results yet.

BWHD Hope they are able to get from both sides on monday and best of luck with trigger.

Hope all the 2ww are taking it easy

Hope all the stimmers are jabbing a way and making lots of nice big follies .

Hope all the d/rare not too emotional and have not murdered anyone yet!!!!

Hope all waiting for FET are doing ok.

Hope everyone waiting for treatment are all relaxed.

Not much from me had a lazy day on sofa. it was really nice outside but been advised to stay out of the sun as it is not good for the snuggling ones.

Take care everyone

Hello,
Well, after my ultrasound today I have 3 folllies on the left and two on the right, and a bunch of small ones ones on right as well, and I am only on my 3rd day of stims, so my doctor is reducing my drug dose because I am apparently responding too well and increasing lupron so I won't ovulate too soon ( that would be a disaster!) he also taking me off the dex tablets, because I think that that is what causes my headaches. I am very excited and I wish good luck to everyone !!!

Well that is all for me girls…we have a BFN…just like I thought. I can not stop crying. What is wrong with me? All I did was tie my tubes and now I can’t carry a baby??? I have 3, what has happened to me in the last 10 years other than me getting older?? This sucks. The worst part is my DH...he deserves a baby of his own. I know this is killing him inside but he is to worried about me to let it show. Well I guess it is on to Plan B. I have an appt with a Tube reversal specialist on Thursday and they say than can get me in within 2 weeks. I can not go through IVF again, it is way too hard on me and my family…x2 was enough for me! I admire you ladies that can keep trying. My DH wants to open his own lab in the next year or so and that will cost a lot of money. We have already spent over $25k on this and the tube surgery is another $7k…we just can’t afford to keep going. I will keep in touch with all of you and I will keep posting here and make sure all you ladies get your BFP. I wish all of you the best and I will talk to you girls in a day or two...if I can stop crying and my eyes don’t swell shut…LOL Thank you again, you ladies are the best!!!

Steph~

I am so sorry to hear this. I know how difficult all of this has been and maybe the tube reversal is your answer. I am thinking of you & your family and will continue to. Please stick around, your friendship & support has been the best.
