Natalie - the one that you have got must be a real fighter. Good luck for transfer tomorrow. It will be easy after the EC that you had. Cannot understand why they cannot get the dose right & just knock you right out
Prissy - think that I can understand what you are saying too. I have been feeling like it is going to be a BFN for me and when I look through the boards and see what other people have had to deal with then I think well that it is only fair for some of us to have to go a few times before we get to our dream. Don't feel bad - you give us hope that we can get BFP when it is right for us. Understand the worry about the wait but you have cleared a very big hurdle and the risks are much much lower % now that something does not go right for you so try to focus on the +ve. Glad that OHSS is now calming down - you must have had pretty bad. YOU ARE PREGNANT
Tash - part of me is thinking BFN - then I might be able to get back into my jeans in a couple of weeks. Figure I have put on like 7lbs from the meds. And then other half of me is hoping that I will not be going anywhere near them for 9 months +. Hope that you were able to relax a little whilst you were out - only a week to go now as you say
Vess - folly fairy has done her business for you. Good luck for EC tomorrow. Fingers crossed that it all goes well and that they may even find some more around the back - will be thinking of you
tlkmoser - glad that you have found the strength to carry on posting and also to make plans for your next steps. Glad the witch has now left - must at least help to get that behind you. Think that it is Heather who has the Roomba - sounds absolutely great!
Beth - sorry about the list if it was my fault - hard keeping up with everyone as it is a v busy thread. Now that you have a test date, you should come over and join us on the May test thread as well! It is good if you are able to stay relaxed - more that can be said for me - especially over the last few days
Sofia - sorry to hear that you down regged for so long and are sufffering feelings of panic. Ideas - what about councelling? Do your clinic have support? or else what about acupuncture or massage - acupuncture is also meant to help blood flow to the womb I have read. I am sure that if a small glass of wine helps you and reduced your stress then the good that it does you will probably out weight the harm. It goes much faster when you are on stimmies so less time to think/dwell about it all. You will be able to do it
Wendy - dh is such a sweetie. If i told dh about the folly fairy i think that he would be sure that i had taken leave of my senses. They like to get the follies to around 18mm if they can. They count ones that are 16mm. Guess that with the trigger shot they figure that those will grow over next 36 hours. Can be better to have fewer good quality than loads which just leads to OHSS. There are often more follies around the back also that they just cannot see on the u/s but may be there on the day. It really is only when you get to EC that you know how many follies and then how many eggs. Drink loads of water and put a hot water bottle on your tummy as that is meant to make them grow
Lucy - hope that you are resting well. Boyfriend sounds like he has better taste in chick flicks that some of our partners
Cyot - just seen you post. It will be the hormones that you are no longer taking and the new ones kicking in. I had quite a bit of spotting post-transfer. It is very normal. Will just look like brown blood. If it is a lot of very red then you should call your clinic just to check. Rest now and let your body prepare and direct all the attention to you & your little ones. Good luck for the next 2weeks. Let us know your test date when you feel up to it and then come over to the May testers with us as well - you've cleared another big hurdle - be pleased with yourself for getting this far
Well - Oh My God - Testing tomorrow. Thanks for all the support - means the world to me. Can't believe that this time tomorrow at least I will know. Bloating & tenderness has departed me. I have been spotting now since Sunday so not holding out much hope but know that I am going to feel punched in the face when they call to tell me that it has not work. Have to be in work tomorrow so will get bloods done at 7am and then just await the call (between 12 - 2pm). dh and I talked about next steps last night. We'll try again after the 3 month wait - undecided yet whether we'll go for another fresh cycle (my view) or use the frosties that we have (dh view as think that it will be less harsh on me in terms of all the drugs). He is already on the case trying to arrange a week away on holiday together in June. He also went and bought Robbie Williams tickets for me & my sister yesterday for Sept. I am so lucky to have him. Then last night, he came off the internet and said you better talk to 'the ladies' as they know what to say when I don't - oh bless!!!!
Best baby dust I could find to everyone.
Will of course come here or my test thread with news. You'll be second to know after dh.
