Thanks Marynaz!!

Well just came back from the RE.. Today he counted a total of 19 follies.. with 8 over 15 mm .. there are another 5 or 6 that look like they will make it to at least 16 which is i guess the smallest they can get a mature egg..

Anyway a good number..

Looks like i will trigger friday for a sunday retrieval.. i am so tired from the meds this time.. but i know it will all be worth it..

NY, I'm sending as many positive vibes your way as I can...saying prayers for you too. You truly deserve this and it sounds like you're well on your way with that follie count! Not to mention all of the "extras" you've done to prepare for this cycle. I admire your strength and persistence. Hugs and loads of baby dust to you!

NY - I am so happy that your cycle is going so great. I can't wait to celebrate your BFP and have at least 1 stick for 9 months. We are all here for you.

NY4thtry - you should be your best advocate. Asking for positive energy/prayers has been proven to help. There was a very interesting study that was done on IVF patients.

Here's what I remember about the study. There were two groups of women doing IVF. The study group was unaware of the study. Each person had their picture taken and was assigned a person to pray for them specifically. Then there was a second group that prayed for the 1st prayer group. The control group was not prayed for. The outcome was a 50% success rate for the prayed for and 26 for the control.

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn1 ... -rate.html

Whether you are religious or not the concept is the same. If you are not religious then send your positive energy out and the same effect happens.

NY4thtry - I will send positive energy your way. Good luck and may the force be with you;-) Please let us know the outcome.

Dagnymichelle...

That is so interesting.. I just figured i could use all the help i could get this time..

also i think the universe should give me this one.. i did a good deed recently and gave some of my medecine that i no longer needed to someone and she is pregnant.. so i figure good karma...

i cant tell everyone how much i appreciate the positgive energy... keep it coming!!!!!! It will get me thorugh this.

Hi all,

Well the re found even more follicels this am for a total of 22 with 15 over 15mm (i think he is double counting some has to be... but still good). The amazing things is 18 of them are on the right only 4 on the left..

So i trigger Sat eve for ER monday.. apparently when you have lots of follicles it sometimes takes longer.. but 20 makes me happy as if i have a 10% chance of a good one now i might have a chance at 2 being good and then if one sticks ...

now the waiting is killing me and poor DH hates this part.. oh well..

thanks for all the good vibes

I am so stocked about all the follies you have. I will pray you have a mature egg in every one of them and that they all fertilize.

I am on number 6 too. I will be 40 next month. I had my transfer yesterday. Three grade 1(best of the best) were put back in. Now we wait. We also changed Dr.s. The new place seems nicer plus DH was allowed in during the transfer. He was amazed. I will put you in my prayers every night too. Good luck to you :D
