Carolyn,

You need to focus on positive vibes only right now. Got it? We will carry you through this. June 9th, here we come.

Sorry I have been out of touch. I took my 82 year old mum on a cruise and she broke her vertabrae. wheel chair, pain meds on the ship. Docs thought it might be cancer since it's her 3rd break in 3 years. I have been dealing with that and good news came so it's just a very serious bone disease. We are praising God for this news...Just waiting in limbo here for an ED. Not feeling very good on getting pregnant on my own with my last 2 mc's this past year at age 41.

I am really pulling for all of you and hope our happy ending comes soon. I was just asked to lead an infant loss group at my church so not sure what will come of it. lots of praying about it right now. hang in there egg heads. I love you all.

Oh Gigi so sorry to hear about your mom glad it turned out not so serious! Though not the most relaxing way to spend a cruise! Your time will be up before you know it though I know it feels like time is crawling--My RE's office was like oh this is going so quick--and I am like not to me!!

Hope everyone else is having a nice weekend!

Best wishes to our June cyclers - Carolyn, Sabi, and Poohgirl! Looking forward to all those BFP's!

Thanks for everyone's responses regarding my hysteroscopy - as you ladies stated, it turns out I can cycle immediately after. As it stands now I have the procedure 6/13 and start my lupron 6/21 - looking at retrieval/transfer 2nd wk of August - it all worked out. I was very nervous because my donor (sis) is not available for a certain time period - but this will work. It feels so much better having a time frame!

Anyone have experience traveling with the meds? My sis will start monitoring in her home state, then travel up to NJ for retrieval - so she will have to travel with her stims and trigger shot (need to be refridgerated).

Hi girls - wishing all the current and upcoming cyclers all the best!! June is right here on the doorstep!

gigi - so very sorry to hear about your mum! Do hope she is beginning to feel better. It can be a long road to recovery, but she will get there. My MIL has also fallen 3x with broken bones in the last 2 years, so I know what you are going through. Thinking of you.

JDC - happy to hear all is going to work out with your sister's schedule and that you can both proceed according to plan. About traveling with the meds, I would check with your RE and see what he says. I think she just has to travel with a medical note to make sure there isn't a problem and that all her meds will go through without trouble.

sabi - best of luck with your shot lessons, part 2! It is easy to get discouraged with all the doctor visits and medicines -- just work hard to keep in mind the reason for all of it, to get pregnant and have a healthy baby in your arms. We have all gone through this and are here to support you every step of the way! I am sure if you asked for a more specific timetable, your doctor would supply you with it - so you don't have to feel so in the dark and have some dates to look forward to.


poohgirl - sounds like all is moving along smoothly for you. Soon, soon your transfer date will be just around the corner!! I know, it feels like an eternity away!

carolyn - hope you are beginning to get excited about your cycle! When is your first scan?

kelly - nice to see your new ticker! And thanks for continuing to offer your support and words of wisdom! You are our big success story!

chriss - how are you doing today? Has the tiredness hit you yet?

jenB - thinking of you and hoping you are enjoying a lovely spring weekend!

I am well. My mom is here for a visit and I haven't been on the computer all that much. Went for an appt. last week and she got to see her grandbaby on the big screen, which was really nice for her, and for us.

Have a great week and I'm looking forward to reading all of your updates!
Sending lots of baby dust and PMA to everyone here.

xx summer

I hope I am not being insensitive to those of you who have not yet had success (even though I know your success is almost upon us!!!!). I apologize in advance if this posting upsets anyone, but I wanted to turn to my support group on this forum and specifically my fellow eggheads!

I heard from my clinic that our egg donor has agreed to donate one more time. It is very exciting and very unusual for someone who has received donor eggs to get the same donor for a second round. I knew that my husband wasn't gung ho on another round - he is happy with the two that we have. Which isn't to say that I am not happy with my two beautiful babies, but I've always thought 3 or 4 would be great. Perhaps I am being too selfish given my circumstances. Anyway, when I told him about it this morning he essentially said 'not now' which means 'not ever'. I guess I am feeling down because I have to let the dream of a bigger family go. I really only would consider another round if we had the same donor so if we pass on her now, I wouldn't decide in a couple of years to try again with another donor.

I know I should be thankful and not look back and I will, but I needed to get that off my chest!

Now on to more positive things... the upcoming cycles! What are the estimated dates for ET for everyone?

Chris, how are you feeling?

Summer, hope you are enjoying your visit with your mom. The first time my mom came to the US she was overjoyed!

JDC, only 6 weeks to go! That time will fly by!

Gigi, hope your mom is feeling okay.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Hi all,

Kelly, are you sure that not now, really means, not ever? Perhaps it would be worth thinking about using your donors eggs + DH sperm and then freezing the embryos to perhaps use later, when the twins are a bit older and the idea of a bigger family won't seem so overwhelming, but welcoming to DH??
Where is your mother from?

Carolyn - thinking of you today and hoping all goes well with your lining scan today!! In a week you will be PUPO! How very exciting!! Will you stay overnight after the transfer? Sending you lots of sticky baby dust and PMA across the channel!!

chriss - how are you? thanks for all the sparkly messages! they brighten up our active thread nicely! Is school over yet, or are you still working?

to sabi, gigi, poohgirl and JDC - wishing all of you lots of luck with your upcoming cycles. Looking forward to seeing a nice wave of bfps in the coming summer months!

I go back on Thursday for my monthly appt. We have started thinking about names, but haven't landed on anything yet! Have been enjoying having my mom here as well.

I am so excited to see so many egg-head cycle buddies! I really wish from my heart that you all have success!! Got my fingers crossed for all of you!!


xx summer

Hi all

I had a great week away in the moto thanks girls and yes the weather was fab carolyn...

Kelly i agree with summer i would see if DH is willing to do sample for embies to be frozen for a later date ...seems a good compromise ! good luck talking him around. I can undertand your point of view wanting genetic similarities, but also DH's as you have 2 handfuls of 8mth old littles ones. It would be scary to have 3 (or more) under the age of 2yrs !!!! :shock: LOL try talking to him agin babe and see how it goes.

summer you sound as if your still floating on cloud 9 :wink: being pregnant x x x How far along are you now ? you dont have a ticker and my memory is rubbish LOL x x

carolyn good luck with your scan and FET next week ...fingers toes and everything crossed for you getting that deserved BFP x x **BABY DUST**

Chriss OMG congratulations on your secret BFP! i am so happpy for you and totally understand you keeping it to yourself until the test date. I am so excited for you when is yur scan? x x

Hi to all those i have missed, sabi, gigi, poohgirl JDC , hoping baby dust coming your way for next cycles of tmt.

I am still waiting for next Marchs 1st appointment...but hoping that this will be the one .

love to you all

Summer, thinking of you. Hope time with Mom has been fun. Hope appointment went well.

Carolyn, glad lining is nice and juicy. Keep thinking positive thoughts.

carolyn,
next week yeah!!!!!!!!!! Wow, time went fast. How are you doing? Got lots of those positive vibes? Envision yourself rocking that beautiful baby to sleep. I am pulling for you girl!!
How is everyone? Moving along it sounds. I'm feeling a little moody from this Lupron-been on it for awhile now. Massive headaches too. I can see the rainbow on the other side(a little glimpse) my turn is around the bend. I'll know more next week. Have a good weekend girlies! Keep the faith!

Hi all,
Jen, happy to see you still checking in - only months to go and your appointment will be here. Sounds like with all of your research and careful planning, this will be the one for you! Enjoy your summer!
Great suggestion from carolyn about the new ticker!

carolyn - congratulations on a fabulous lining!! Got everything crossed for you for a smooth transfer next week!! Think positive!!

sabi - are you drinking 2-3 liters of water and such everyday? That could help curb the headaches. Your turn is just around the corner!! Looking forward to hearing your news about your donor next week.

chriss - hope all is going well! Thinking of you.

poohgirl, gigi & JDC - Hope all is well with you. Poohgirl, you are getting ready as well, right? Soon, soon, soon!!

kelly - how's the negotiation going? Hope you all are enjoying the summer.

My appointment yesterday went well. Baby weighed in at 200 grams and was moving around like crazy. In 3 weeks, we have the big anatomy scan. We are still set on not finding out the gender, but I have a feeling as the weeks progress, it might be more difficult to keep it a secret, and we are getting very curious!

Sending everyone lots of baby dust an PMA!!
