Wow! What a positive thread... everyone is really doing well. Must be cause its lucky month number 8! I did my ER this morning - got 11 eggs. Embryologists told me on my way out that 10 look good and 1 is a bit smaller and that sperm was doing its job and no ICIS was needed. So now I wait for fert report tomorrow. ET Wednesday. Wow!

I'm thread crashin'!

Just wanted to say congrats to Turtle and Valerie for starting stims. I just finished by last of the two Board exams I was always worrying about on the May Thread, so I'm doing great. I'm wishing the two of you plentiful (but not too plentiful) eggies, a painless egg retrieval and a perfectly plump endometrium for your little peanuts to snuggle into!! I also wish you some peace to maintain your sanity through it all. Thx for all the support your gave me you, if karma works as it should, then you both should be wonderfully successful this cycle!! XXOOX Baby Dust to all you ladies.

Morning Girls,

Sorry I've been MIA for a few days, I had a wedding yesterday and travelled down on the Friday and only got back late last night! How much have I missed? :shock:

Val - glad to hear you have started the stims and that they are going well. Keep us posted about the b/w on Monday and how it goes. I don't have anything done until Tuesday and then it is just b/w to see whether they need to up or down my meds. Hope the heatwave isn't too bad - we could do with some sun over here!!

JHarris - congratulations!! Any news on the beta?

JDC - how you doing? Have you caved in and done a POAS yet?

Hopinginpa - congrats on your beta, keep the PMA and it will keep doubling

Rosario - that is an awful lot of embies to transfer!! They look good tho, could you not freeze some so you could then have a sibling later on? Here in the UK we are only allowed to transfer 2 (which they are going to reduce to 1 sometime soon).

TrueBeliever - how is the 2ww going? Only advice I can offer is to try and have plenty to occupy your mind otherwise you start analysing everything too much and end up driving yourself nuts! Good luck

Steph 2 - welcome!

Much Hope, Turtles, Jenolina, Kas - how are the stims going?

Karen - good to hear you had a good holiday

Hi to everyone else, hope you are all ok?

As for me, injections are now fine after the little mishap with the first one!! I go back Tuesday for b/w to check the dosage and to make sure that everything is happening as it should be.

The wedding at the weekend was lovely. The reception was in Roger Daltry's back garden (the lead singer of the Who) which was gorgeous, the only problem was the weather - it rained for most of the day!! They do say it is lucky for it to rain on your wedding day tho - I hope so because it rained on mine nearly 3 yrs ago!!

Anyway, that is about all my news. Still staying positive and just waiting for my BFP to arrive in a few weeks!!

Catch you later

Kate :D

Hello ladies. I'm sorry I haven't posted the past couple days. Things have been crazy busy!! I got my results Friday, and got a BFP!!! :D :D My HcG level was 72, so not really high, but still good. I went in this morning for my 2nd beta, and should get a call in a few hours. Hopefully my numbers increased nicely. So after getting the results, we came home and told my DS the news. He was pretty excited, but then looked at me and told me I didn't look like I was having a baby!! :lol: Then we had to go to a soccer game yesterday, and then a birthday party after that. I had to go in this morning for BW, so it's been a pretty busy weekend. Plus we had to work in several calls to family members that were also awaiting our results!

Looks like things are moving along nicely for everyone else!

hoping: I'm glad your numbers are rising!! I can't wait to hear about your next beta.

valerie: Tylenol was the only thing I was told to take for those nasty headaches. Luckily they only lasted a few days.

Kate: Good to hear those shots are getting better! And that wedding sounds exciting!

SDTrying!! Good to hear from you! How are you and your little one?

Biddy: Congrats on ER!!

Rosario: Good luck with ET today!!

alimoyni: Excellent fert report!!

JDC: How are you hanging in there?

To everyone else, hang in there!! Your time is coming! Gotta go get some things done. I will post later when I get my 2nd beta results! Baby wishes to all!

Hi All

Congrats to hoping and jharris on your BFP!!! :) I hope your numbers keeping growing nicely.

Rosario - Congrats on the ET today. It only takes 1 good embroy. I'm sure there will be a BFP coming your way.

To all of those stimming best of luck.

I will start stimming tomorrow and I am very excited. I am starting to get my PMA back. I am hoping that the third time is the charm.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Congrats Rosario - you are officially PUPO. I think 3 embies are a good #. When is your beta?

Amanda - Good luck on stimming, Grow Follies Grow.

Hopefully I will start stims tomorrow. I go in for b/w and u/s and am keeping my fingers crossed that all my levels are good and I can start stims. I am not getting too hopeful because I am afraid my levels won't be what the RE wants them to be at. That just seems to be my luck with the IVF stuff.

Hope everyone else is doing well.

Rosario~ Thanks for sharing the picture of your beautiful embies!! I always love to see them. Enjoy being PUPO and best of luck for a BFP real soon!

Biddy~ Great Fert. report. 7 embies is a very good number and I hope you get lots of blasts! You'll be PUPO before you know it! :wink:
I love your : "Go Team August'! Let us know when you're doing your transfer.

SDTrying~ Thank you so much for crashing....I've been thinking about you and hope your little peanut are doing great! I'm so happy that you finished your exams! Thanks for your kind and encouraging words! XXXOOO for you!

Chris, AmandaM~ Congrats for starting your stims tomorrow and I'm so glad you'll be joining us!

Kate~ I'm glad the injections are going better and I'm sure you're excited to have your first BW as I am.

I'm going to keep it a little short as I am still dealing with a migraine! Between Friday and today, it's been a little difficult and I hope not to have a headache tomorrow because it's exhausting me!

jharris~ Best of luck on your next beta and hoping for a great number!

I'll catch up with all of you tomorrow night as I go for BW in the morning and then straight to work.

Lots of baby dust and love to all!
