NY, thinking about you.
Renee, you are in a tough spot. Single mom and trying to get ready for the move. I HATE moving. It is the pits. Due date 9/20/09. Got it.
Kat, i use IVPCare as well. They have been awesome. Congrats on getting started on stims soon. I want all the details. Watching the active cyclers really makes the time tick by quicker. What was your AFC? Working out while on stims is fine. I don't know about after the ER. I was planning on ER without fresh ET so i didn't even ask.
Sue, glad those ovaries are rocking. You have not been on stims that long. I hope you have a ton of follies cooking at you next US. I can't wait to see if the herbs made a difference. Same goes for you, i want all the details. What was your AFC? I think the beach would be fine a couple of days after ET. I think you will be bloated and miserable for the first few days anyway. I know i was. People that live in places that are hot year round get pregnant. I think swimming in the ocean would be fine after a few days too but ask your doc. I would be interested to know what they say.
Tammy, i think clomid or femara is a good idea. Multiple targets per cycle ups your chances. Femara is a new alternative. It does the same thing clomid does but through a different mechanism. It has a short half life. Clomid has a long half life so you can have endometrial lining problems and hostile CM on clomid. Not so on femara. Also, i had no side effects from the femara. You can not trust an opk for 3 days after your last dose of clomid. I don't know if it would throw off the watch too. Also, if you are going to do either one i would do it with a trigger shot. No sense making extra follies unless you have a way to induce them all to ovulate. Usually no ultrasound monitoring is required. I think you trigger when you get a peak reading then have sex that day and the day after.
Hello to everybody else. I hope all the pregnant ladies are doing well. I will update the list again soon. You know me. I am a little slow at it.
