Good Morning Ladies. Well, I am back at work... eating a muffin for breakfast. Maybe I shouldn't be but I am starving. Anyway, I am going to try to do personals... hopefully I don't miss anyone.
Mandeekins.... So how did it go today? How many eggs? Well, let us know as soon as you feel better. Hope all went well.
Espinoza... I'm sorry hun that u r going "Crazy in the 2WW". I really wish there was an easier and faster way to do PG tests without having to go thru this dreaded 2ww, especially for those of us that count the days to see that BFP and look forward to being mommies whether it's naturally or with the help of science. ANyway. I am glad that u were able to move up your Beta a day and on your Anniversay. That would be a wonderfull gift that will last a life time. As for the HPT... don't stress yourself over the results. I agree with michele and waitingfor4, the only positive reading is the Beta. HPTs no matter how expensive or accurate they say they are, they may not always work this early on. Eventually if u r PG they will work, but for now don't worry about the BFN. I am so sure and hopeful that u will get your BFP, just try to relax for these next 2 days. Some lucky ladies will get their BFP on an HPT 10dpo and others won't get it till a few weeks after missed period on an HPT. So hun... just wait till your Beta. Good Luck Espinoza.
Jenn... I will try to answer questons that I could. As for Follistim, I was on same protocol. For 3 days, tha mount sounds fine cuz everyone differs but as for the size it could be that they are grwoing a little too fast since it only has been 3 days but don't quote me. If I remember right, they want the follies at least 18mm but remember they do grow fast and usually u r on stims for an average of 10 days so u don't want them to overmature. As for the lining, I believe they want that at least 10 or 12mm thick (don't remember too well). I'm surprised they didn't lower your stims a little since you are responding so well, but your RE knows what he is doing so it should be fine. As for the headaches, I don't recall getting headaches as you describe. I did get alot of headaches after ER/ET but not during stims or Lupron. If it gets really bad, then u may want to ask RE because they may need to lower dose a little.. you don't want to get OHSS. And finally, as far as him saying don't worry just do what they say... I didn't like that. Of course u will do what they say but if u r not feeling well or worried then you have the right to ask questions and get answers. Good Luck Wednesday.
ct_michele... Sorry about your DH and TESE. I wish I cold help with answers on this one but I can't. I just hope you get the answers you want and need on Thursday. Hopefully the frozen vial will be enought to make a baby. Good Luck to you and DH.
BarbD... Is Estradiol your stim inj? As for the Crying episode.. well, welcom to the world of IVF meds. Basically it is the meds making you go thru all these emotions. But I am glad that it is crying mood instead of a screaming and yelling mood.
Molly... Yipee!! I have added you to the stims schedule. As for the cyst... hope it is nothing bad. But congrats on starting stims and keep us posted. Good Luck on Friday.
waitingfor4... Well, you are almost there. Hope it all goes well this week and you gate to trigger for your ER on the 30th. As for you SIL... I know exactly what you mean and how u feel. Currently one of my SILs is PG. SHe is 19, this will be her 3rd child. SHe didn't want it according to her, she was on BCPs... she is not married just living with BF who is always fighting with her and she hasn't been happy and has been unfaithful to her BF. ANd now she is PG. I admit, I am jealous especially since she got PG in Nov when it should have been me. She new I was on IVF and tells me in Nov when I was in my 2ww... "oh guess what, I am PG. I don't want it so I told Peter (her BF) if we can give it to you but he said no, sorry". I told her congrats and don't worry, my day will come. She said hopefully we can be PG together. Whatever. I am happy for her that she doesn't have to struggle, but it upsets me especially seeing that she doesn't take good care of her other 2 kids. They are always dirty, saying bad words, when she has them outside she doesn't realize where they go until they are already across the street... and they are only 4 and 2 yrs old. ANyway, Good Luck with everything.
