Jen - Everywhere seems to have different potocol I have been on estrogen tablets - 1 three times per day, predislone which is an auto immune one - one per day, 100mg asprin daily and now lovely progesterone suppositories twice daily - oh and of course the folic acid that been taking for years :roll: :roll:

I am glad you have positive feeling about Athens - have you been there before ? - we were there for olympics and its an amazing city - are you waiting to next year to build up your strength or is that the donor wait ??

Summer - glad all went well with the scan - all crosed for you hon for the next 2 weeks then - hope they go as quickly for me as they will for you :D

Sabi - thanks for the good wishes xx

Hi to everyone else xxx

Just got to our friends who we are now staying with till Monday - they left us a key and on the bed in there guest room are 3 of the most gotgeous hand decorated egg shells - I think its one for each of the embies we are transferring - imagine the story if all 3 take ...

Hi kids,
Great news Carolyn. Day 5 embies are supposed to be the best!

My RE will only transfer 2 embies when doing DE. So I guess I won't have that decision to make. I can understand how tempting it must be!!!

Jenbabes, I think I will go back and re-read some of the early pages of this thread. It's been a while since I did so and I do recall enjoying all the info you posted. I'm glad that you are back here with us.

Gotta run quick, more later:)

Congrats Carolyn! poohgirl is right getting "eggs" at Easter time is a very good sign! I prayed at the Easter vigil for all of us girls that are currently preg, waiting or in the IVF process. 2009/2010 Are going to be great years I can feel it.

Happy Easter everyone!

Congratulations on being PUPO, Carolyn!! Think you've got a great chance for success! Relax, take it easy and take good care of your precious cargo!
Have a good flight back over the pond on Monday! I'm sure you can't stop smiling -- keep up the PMA and sending you lots of baby dust for the next 2 weeks ahead.

Happy Easter, egg-heads!!
xx summer

Hi all!

Carolyn--24 degrees sounds cold until I realized you were talking celius and not ferinheit :lol:

Hope everyone is doing okay. I had my STD testing today--they poked 4 times to get blood. But my donor is getting her psych appointment on Thursday then we wait about a week to get the report then we give the clinic tons of money---then we officially start cycles--should be 1st week of may or so. I totally hate the hurry up and wait game!


I hope everyone had a nice easter! I sure hope spring comes here soon--it actually snowed here today-- :twisted:

Carolyn,

Go embies go! I am all about you these next 2 weeks and sending you positive thoughts.

Still in recovering miscarriage mode over here. Not sure how long it takes to get AF again. Can't remember after the last 2. Anyone know the average? Can't do much until AF comes again.

Glad all of you are doing well.

Gigi--it took me 6 weeks from my d&c, I think they told me 4 to 8 weeks is typical. Hope that helps, I remember how hard that process is, I know that all I wanted was for AF to come so I can go to the next step. I went to accupunture that helps speed things along.

Hope that helps :(
