I have to comment about all this talk concerning sub-Q shots—whether women do them on their own or if their DH does them. I’ve been doing all the sub-Q shots myself, but in no way, shape, or form am I brave for that!! In fact, the first time I had to do it, I poked myself in the belly with the follistim pen and started LAUGHING (with the needle still in my belly, mind you!). I was so nervous, that I started laughing!!! Then, after I administered the shot, I almost passed out—my DH had to carry me to the couch!! Obviously, it’s gotten tremendously easier, but I thought you guys might laugh (at me or with me!).
Less than a week to go!! How are you holding up? I can imagine that these are the longest two weeks EVER!! Hang in there—it’s our turn!!
New car?!? Nice, nice!! Have you and your DH been fighting over who gets to drive it?
: How did your u/s go today? I hope all is well! I hear you about the emotions running high. I’ve been pretty teary myself. But, hey, getting a new purse out of it aint too shabby!!
What a nightmare about the cyst!! Are you feeling okay now? Were they able to give you anything to reduce the pain? Ugh. As if we don’t go through enough. I’m thinking of you today—because it’s your transfer day!! Fill us in, when you’re able. I agree with what’s been said by the other girls. I don’t know how much it matters concerning what stage the embryos are at transfer. Like IrishHope said, sometimes “great” embryos get transferred and end up in a BFN, while other times “poor” quality embryos get transferred and end up in a BFP. You are a trooper and so are your embryos—everything will end up the way it’s supposed to!! I mean, we ARE going to have those December babies, right?!?
: I know how upsetting it is not to have the u/s go well. But…it’s early in the cycle and things can change. For my cycle, at one u/s they’d say things are going well, at the next u/s they’d say the cycle isn’t progressing the way it’s supposed to. I swear their opinion changed on a daily basis. Didn’t you have cyst in the beginning of your cycle? Could that be the over-achiever? If so, maybe it doesn’t matter that it’s growing faster than the rest. Try to hang in there! Keep us posted!
Well, still no news on the fertilization report. I’m wondering if that’s a bad sign? I mean, don’t these nurses know that we should get a call ASAP. I’m almost tempted to drive to the clinic and just ask the embryologists. Okay, fine, perhaps that isn’t the greatest idea…
