hello ladies, i hope everyone is doing well. melinda, are you having any symptoms yet? i'm not and it is so scary! i just keep reminding myself that it is very early still and that i didn't with my son, but i keep thinking about m/c and can't seem to believe it or be excited...ahhhh!

fullofhope, i know what you mean about prog. shots. how long do you have to take them? now that i bfp, i have 3 more weeks to go(6 total). i am so sore, feel like it's hard to walk sometimes, but i know it's worth it and it will be over soon. i didn't have over stim. so i don't know what you are going through, but try to hang in there...sunday is just around the corner.

Hi Everyone!!
Just checking up on everyone :D
Looks like things are going well for you Mimi, I wouldn't worry too much about the symptom part..most women don't know they are preggo until week 6 or 7, so just hang in there!!

How you doing Melinda?? I bet you are looking forward to the 20th! Less than a week now!

fullofhope-sorry to hear you are having a hard time with the shots. When I did them, I was in tears, and couldn't even get out of a chair.. it was TERRIBLE, and my DH felt awful. Then, my nurse said that instead of a 1 1/2 inch needle, I could get away with a 1 inch due to my size and after that I couldn't even tell I was having them anymore. And the meds still got to where they were supposed to go. So you may want to ask about that. It made the world of difference to me. I'm not dreading them at all to have them again. Good luck!!! Can't wait until Sunday!!

How are you doing wannabemomma???Test day???

Hi ladies I am glad to see everyone is doing well. I love those BFP's we have been getting around here. I pray I can join you tomorrow. Tomorrow is the BIG DAY! I am in a meeting tomorrow so I have asked my dh to take the call then give me the answer when I get home at 6:30. I just hope I don't go bonkers by then.

Babydust to all!

Are you saying that they don't tell right away? They better not send me home and tell me that they'll call me later in the day with the results! :x

Hi everyone i'm new to to this forum.
I'm 41 and will be starting my stimulation on the 27th November.

Well...well...today my OHSS was acting up pretty bad and I got a little worried so I called the reproductive center. They told me to come in immediately for an ultra sound and blood work. This is day nine since my transfer, however, they decided to do a pregnancy test anyway. BFP!!!BFP!!!!BFP!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D I couldn't believe it!!!! My HCG level is 117 at day nine which indicates a really big chance that I'm carrying twins, according to the nurse. YEA!!! YEA!!! We are so exited we can't stand it!

Thank you.
The ohss symptoms are not fun and when pregnant they can go on for 10 weeks before they give out. December 6th is my u/s. Hopefully the ohss has gotten better by then.
Good luck to everyone out there!
Thanks for caring! It's nice to have people who understand what I'm going through.

FOH- That's great! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!

Went to the RE this am- She measured 6 follicles on each side (all ranging from 7 mm-9 mm). She said there are more, but they only measure all of them once they get to be about 12 mm. My dosage is remaining the same: 5 units of Lupron, 225 of Gonal F and 75 of Menopur. I go back on Monday morning. On a downside, I am feeling awful! My throat is killing me and my nose is starting to get stuffed up!
