Renee that is awesome!!! But i did not think you were having twins. I thought you were having triplets or quad.

Hil, i can't remember, do you know how to chart, read your fertility signs and confirm ovulation via temping? If not, you should join the free version of fertility friend. It will teach you all of that. Your body really will tell you when your are about to ovulate so you can have sex during your fertile period. It will also confirm ovulation. Ovulation kits don't work well for many women. I have a very short lh surge so i must test 4 times a day when i am getting close to catch it. Your body will tell you when you are getting close. Also, a positive opk doesn't mean you ovulated. A thermal shift does. You can gear up to ovulate, have a positive opk and stall out. Then a day or two later have another surge and ovulate. If you don't know all the ins and outs of this you can be having sex at times when there is no possible way you will get pregnant.

If you know all this stuff and you told me already then sorry for the repeat. :oops: If not, you really need to learn this stuff.

Hi guys. Just checking out what is going on.

Renee and Rhonda- CONGRATS on the natural way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If either of you are intersted, I am writing a book, Miracle Conceptions; Don't Give up Hope and would love to hear your story. I figure that all of that suffer from infertility could use some hope. I can be reached off line at miracleconceptions.com.

Renee - I have also suffered from an M/C and it's heartwrentching. I think that we all have the power of positive thought. Think positive often and enjoy it. when you starting worrying, stop and replace it with a positive image.

Hil - There is a must have book for anyone trying the natural way called. Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. Good luck

Renee: Thank goodness your little bean is doing well! We leave for Florida two weeks from this Saturday. I sure hope that Andrew is good on the plane.

Hil: I'm trying an OV Fertility Monitor Watch this cycle. I will let you know what I think after this cycle. It monitors the chloride ions in your skin. I will also check ovulation using a pee stick ovulation predictor to see if the two methods coincide. I used one last month and it was right on the money, as I started AF 14 days after ovulation. However, I did not get preggo so I'm thinking that last month's egg was of poor quality.

Kelly: When do you cycle again? Are you doing cycles back to back?

Rhonda: Please update us and let us know how you and bean are doing.

Hello to NY4thtry, SueQiwi, Sis1, dagnymichelle and anyone else.

Regards,
Tammy

Tammy, i missed your question earlier. My next retrieval is in March. They want a month off in between to estrogen prime and let your ovaries rest.

Hello Natasha and good luck. Sending sticky vibes your way.

I will update the list in a couple of days. I am waiting on betas etc.

Waving hello to you all.

Hello ALL.

I am very new to all of this. My background: I am 41, DH is 27. I have had 4 children naturally, had my tubes entirely removed due to my obvious fertility, (preg on BCP = baby #1) (preg on IUD = #2) Baby #3 planned and (preg nurshing and on miny pill baby #4) Married 12 years had a NON-reversable tubal.

Now I am newly married, husband wants a baby. Since my clock is screaming the ugency to have a baby is the reason for IVF. Because of my tubal, IFV is our only option to hopefully have a baby. I have come to learn that people take for granted the ability to conceive for granted (although I always felt blessed all 4 times with my children) nonetheless it is a process that is very taxing, emotionally, physically and financially.

My first IVF was cancelled due to over stim. I had 46 follies and my estrodal levels were over 7K they chose to canx since I responded like I did. Although my initial protocol was appropriate because of my age, it was too much. I gained 17 lbs and felt so bloated and big---uggh.

I am now on the long lupron (instead of the micro-flare) protocol. My Dr. is optimistic since I responded so well, however I am not going to be counting my babies before I hear their heart beat(s).....
so to speak.

I am talking lupron .05 nightly starting the last 5 days of BCP's, then Follistem (150 Ui's) and 75 Repronex (my aplogies for not knowing the fomat and IVF jargin) ER will be 2/20 up to 2/23 and ET up to 5 days later.
Oh and wil have to have ICSI Husband--50% motility.

I am nervous and fearful of disappointment, again, even tho I wont be alone, it still feels lonely. :cry: I know you know what I am talking about...oh and have you noticed there are babies everyWHERE! when you are TTC?

Thank you ladies for all you do, support and kind words..this is great place and my prayers go out to all of you.
