Hi becky<br><br>Thanks have read your messages.<br><br>I am now slightly confused. I phoned for the results of todays blood test at 2.00 to be told that they are not going to scan me until Saturday morning and to reduce my dose of Fostimon! I am going back in the morning for a blood test so I can check if my oestrogen level has suddenly gone up. Such a nightmare.<br><br>Will be thinking of you tomorrow. We just need to try and stay positive about it all (easier said than done sometimes). I just hope I sleep tonight - the bags under my eyes are growing by the day!<br><br>Big hugs and take care<br><br>Julie<br><br>

Thanks for your messages. Sorry but I haven't had chance to get on the computer before now. This site is so addictive - I feel as if I am missing out if I don't log on for a day!<br><br>Anyway - good news - the scan this morning showed that I now have 6 decent sized follicles and another 8 following on closely behind! Certainly an improvement from Thursday. Maybe talking to them really does make a difference!<br><br>I can't let myself get too carried away yet but I have felt a lot better today about it. I had a feeling something was happening inside as I had a lot of pains yesterday and my stomach suddenly bloated up.<br><br>I am back Sunday morning for another scan so hope they will have grown even more so that I will be ready for ec on Tuesday.<br><br>Wishing you all the best wishes for Monday and hope your news will be good then we can share the 2ww together.<br><br>I have been drinking loads of water but not really sure why - have you any idea?<br><br>Sending you a big hug<br><br>Julie<br>

Hey Julie...that is fantastic news...sounds like you now have enough for the cycle to continue..they said we are ok and we have alot less then you have..<br><br>I am still on the 6 powders -were supposed to reduce top 4 but then the consultant rang late evening to say that the clinic had advised that I stick to 6 until Monday...so another 6 powders done tonight and then the fun starts all again tomorrow. Ever feel like you are always having an injection? At least it gives you something to do each day whilst waiting for the scans.<br>I have had more pain today too..not as much tho' as on Wednesday but then again it may have been abit of heartache...It feels more like AF pain still rather then the twinges. I don't think that I have bloated out yet..I would love to and then I know that it is doing something.<br>I must spend some time talking to my ovaries tonight ..have neglected them a bit today and been shopping and wrapping massive amounts of birthday, wedding and christmas pressie (give me something to do to pass the time..tomorrow I plan to do my florist port folio and my xmas cards...) - So organised aren't I? No ..just mad!<br><br>I will post on Monday ...let me know how you get on in the morning.<br><br>Don't forget to read your little egg machines a bed time story...<br><br>Love becky B

Hi becky<br><br>Well not too long for you to wait now for your scan, I am sure all those injections will be worthwhile. My arms are getting quite sore now from giving blood every day. This morning the nurse tried my left arm but couldn't get any blood out and so had to try the right arm as well - they are both looking really bruised. I feel a little bit like a pin cushion.<br><br>Anyway this morning my scan showed that the follicles hadn't really grown all that much and so I am back again tomorrow morning for another scan! Hopefully by tomorrow they will be of a decent size - I will do some strong talking to them later.<br><br>Fingers crossed for good news for both of us tomorrow.<br><br>I can't believe how organised you are - christmas cards already!! Every year I think I will get organised early but I never actually manage it.

Hi Julie<br>I am sorry to hear that your follies haven't grown much since the last scan..it drives you mad all this toing and frowing from blood tests and scans..I am sure that we will both have some luck tomorrow and have the perfect number at the perfect size.<br>What time is your scan? Mine is 2.00 so I will post late afternoon.<br>Again today..not alot of bloating and few hardly worth writing home about twinges..<br>I did speak to my ovaries last night before I went to bed and also demanded that my dh gave each one a kiss before he went off to the land of nod!<br><br>Catch up tomorrow..must say I have butterflys in my tummy..nervous, excited, who knows..<br><br>Love Becky B

Hi Becky<br><br>How did you get on? I have been thinking about you this afternoon.<br><br>My scan this morning showed that the follies have now grown, there are 7 decent sized ones and about another 5 slightly smaller ones. So its all systems go with my hCG tonight at 10.00 pm - at least that means I should be seen first thing on Wednesday. An end to the injections at last.<br><br>I can now start worrying about the next stage! I had 7 eggs collected last time but only one fertilised and was put back so I am hoping that we have 2 to put back this time.<br><br>Look forward to hearing how you got on.<br><br>Take care<br><br>

Hi Julie<br><br>By the time you read this you would have had your big HCG injection...I didnt get to post until now tonight as I have been making calls to various people and also arranging a few days off work next week..<br>My scan went well today..not as many follies as you tho'..I think that there are 3 now on my right and about 4 on my left plus a few babies here and there..I know that the biggest one is 22 mm...sounds big to me anyway..the consultants also seemed pleased with my lining again..16 mm..<br>Guess what? Well I am going back for another scan tomorrow and I hope to be doing my big injection in the evening or at the latest on Wednesday to have ec either Thursday or Friday..so we will be able to hold hands for the next stage and worry ourselves sick about that!<br>I hope that they are able to get 2 fertilised and then also get a couple frozen so that we dont have to go through the whole cycle again....for many reasons..<br>Fingers crossed for you ec..on Wednesday..post when you can ..and I will let you know how I get on tomorrow at 1.00. My hormone levels had increased from 900 on Friday to 3300 today which means that they have at least 3 eggs..<br><br>Love Becky B
