Rhonda, I am sending positive vibes your way. I know those 2 embies will be perfect and in 9 months you will be holding your beatiful baby.

I will be thinking about you and saying a prayer for you tonight that your ET goes smooth.

Rhonda...

I hope things are going well and those 2 guys are your future babies!



As for me, I had my 4 day US and BW.

Estrogen was 75 (its always 75 on day 4 for me).

My follicles were the following:

Right: 10, 7, 4

Left: 7, 7, 7, 6

They usually only measure when they reach 10+, but they measured these anyway. Hopefully they will all grow and Monday will show me something good. This whole thing is ALWAY so dang stressful!

Oddly my FSH was a whopping 2.2 on day 2 this month. Maybe estrogen priming pushed it down?
Me: 44 severely reduced reserve
DH: 44 perfect

Any news Rhonda? Praying for you.

Lynnie, so that is what you have cooking after only 4 days of stims? That is awesome. You may end up with a lot of follies this time. FX.

Elida, i can't for your beta. Will it be sky high = 3 babies on board or high = 2 babies on board. Hmmmmmmm what do you think?

Waving hello to everybody else. Kelly

Elida I so hope your beta is good results. I know you are so anxious about it. I have a good feeling. I will be praying for you.

Kelly, thanks for the well wishes. I hope you are doing well.

lynnie, keep those follies growing. my re always tells me to talk to mine and tell them to grow. Crazy thing is, i did. lol. cant hurt right.

my two embies that were transferred today were grade A- with cell of 8(comp) and grade b with cell of 7. What do you guys think about this?

good vibes to all. I will keep you informed. We are in this together. It is so wonderful to have you all to talk to as i am a very private person and have only told a my mom and dad about this. Take care

Rhonda i am so confused by embryo grading. There are so many different scales and i am not familiar with any of them. What did your RE or embryologist tell you? The fact that they made it to blast is some indication that they are healthy.

You are now PUPO. I am sending you a care packages of PRAYERS, STICKY VIBES AND POSITIVE THOUGHTS. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kelly you are so funny. To be honest. I feel twins too.. Deep in my heart I do.

Anyway, I have besides my first beta tomorrow, my first perinatologistappt too. My endocronologist wanted me seen asap to be sure my insulin will be properly regulated. So I might have a 1st sono earlier then the RE's 6 week plan.

I'll keep you posted

Crashing!! :D

Much Hope~ Thinking about you this morning and I know how excited you must be to go get your beta this morning. It is just a matter of finding out how high your number will be. I know you're having twins...I can feel it for you. I could do the guessing game as well and say a beta of 485.
All my love for you, you are such a sweet, caring person and will make a wonderful Mommy again!

Lynnie~ You are doing terrific with your follies! Keep up the good work. You sure deserve that BFP after you've been through so much. I'll keep checking on you to see your progress. It is nerve wrecking to be stimming and always wondering how it will turn out but you got out of the starter blocks really fast this time.

As you can see, I'm 40 as well and will most likely join your group in a little while. Kind of taking a little rest before I do so.

Much sticky baby dust to all of you!

Good Morning ladies:

Val, you are the sweetest women. I cannot wait until you join us. You always have a way of making me smile. Someone with such a gift and so completely selfless deserves to be a mommy so much!!!!

Well ladies I got up bright and early this morning and went to the lab for my first beta. I cannot wait to find out the numbers either. Val to be honest, I know in my heart we have twins also...

DH is so excied, when I showed him the HPT it was so touching to see the joy over take his emotions.. This is all knew for him since his 2 children were adopted. He rubs my belly every morning and say hello to the girls. It is adorable...

I to am wondering what the number will be since I got my first HPT BFP, 5 dpt... This should be interesting... I will keep you posted as soon as I get word this afternoon. My center only calls with 1st betas if they are over 100...Other wise you get the 1st and 2nd numbers after the 2nd beta.. I have a feeling that wont be an issue, or I am hoping it wont!!!

Going to go make breakfast.

Hey everyone!

Elida-- 401 is awesome. I am now thinking 3 with that number, but hoping 2 for your sake. If its 3, you will be able to do it!!!!!! Get that baby nurse now! ;-)


Valerie -- I did not realize you had an M/C! I am so so so sorry! When are you planning on doing your next round???


Kelly -- I was gonna guess 415, but I got there too late!


So today my follies are weird as usual. I have very few to start with, so the max number I could get is 8 if all grew. Currently I think 5 of those are growing...

Stats today are

Right: 8.5, 6.5
Left: 11, 10, 10, 10


I like that left side! There is a small one on the right and the a small on on the left that were not measured. I guess until they are bigger than 8-9, they are not really reacting to stims necessarily. So that means my left side is doing ok and my right side may have 1 that is responding.

My dream is that all 8 grow and become high grade blasts! Heh!
Me: 44 severely reduced reserve
DH: 44 perfect

I'm 41 and just had my 3rd IVF/ICSI. 1st IVF/ICSI was in 2001 and resulted in a beautiful DD!! 2nd IVF/ICSI was Sept '08 and I had only 1 embie to transfer which didn't stick. Between successful IVF and last IVF I had 3 spontaneous pregnancies which all miscarried :cry: Right now I'm in the 2ww, retrieval was 11/8 with ET 11/11. This time we transferred every single embie: 5! I am having a really hard time this 2ww. My DD is turning 7 next Monday and she's awesome, but she is 7 and headstrong :wink: and the passed few days I have just felt like I'm not a good mommy and why would God want me to mother more babies, you know what I mean? I think I'm on hormone overload (prog. supps. 3xs/day and estrace 3 pills 2xs/day) and I just want to curl up in the fetal position. Anyone feeling like me? I go for my beta the day before Thanksgiving, which might be a neat thing. I really would like something new to be thankful for. Though I do have so much already to be thankful for. We tried 9 years before having DD and she is truly a miracle. Am I being greedy wanting more? Thanks for "listening".
